Even the loveliest artwork requires upkeep, which is why Manet's Olympia is regularly removed for bikini waxes. Maintain museum-quality beauty with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services at Bare by Tru.
Surrounded by images of floor-length waterfalls, windswept plains, and wild wood wall installations, clients at Bare by Tru are wrapped in luxury and stoic charm without being smothered with pretension. Aestheticians perform a spread of waxing treatments, cleaning up fuzz and shucking bewhiskered husks with techniques learned through a rigorous and continual training program. The waxing menu is bountiful: opt for brow shapings that impede the gradual embrace of forehead caterpillars ($23), or for lip depilation, which reduces tickling during marathon eskimo-kiss competitions ($14). Swimmers ready appendages for racing season with an underarm ($20) and full-leg ($75) waxing, replacing drag-inducing stubble with smooth epidermal stretches. Infused with essential oils, Bare by Tru’s wax gently coddles skin while still quickly and effectively relocating follicles to new homes on astroturf football fields. Before the session, hair should be at least 1/8 of an inch to achieve expected results.
The aestheticians and spa staff at Tru Spa follow a strict spa mission focused on making each treatment they perform as effective as possible. This philosophy is reflected in the luxurious ingredients and thorough techniques employed in each skin, body, and nailcare service. On top of that, the spa itself was designed in ways that enhance specific treatments. Select bodywork procedures are performed in the Tropical Rainforest room, where a jungle mist drifts around the body before warm rain showers the client to mimic the effects of a body wrap without any constrictive coverings. Flat-screen TVs hang inside the nail room, drawing the clients' attention so they will be less likely to point at passersby. Colored light fills the massage rooms, painting everything in yellow, red, or dark blue. The rest of the spa sets a sleek and modern tone with natural light and bamboo flooring that is both sanitary and earth friendly.
