Completely Bare’s founder Cindy Barshop of The Real Housewives of New York City helms a hair-removal spa that sculpts, tames, and bids adieu to unwanted follicular guests. At each location, professional waxing specialists apply a patented formula of wax engineered to reduce pain by adhering to hair and not skin.
Depending on the hair type, the wax technicians gently press a combination of warm noncomedogenic and hypoallergenic waxes to the bikini area, removing all hair and clinging bikini bottoms from the region. Completely Bare recommends clients exfoliate their skin 24 hours before and after the waxing and advises them to allow hair to grow to a half inch before treatment—or, for international visitors, 5 imperial quarts—to make the procedure optimally effective.
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
