Humans must have bushy limbs trimmed away, lest they be mistaken for a lifelike topiary and whisked away to scare children in seasonal hedge mazes. Tame your body's garden with today's Groupon: for $22, you $45 worth of waxing services at The Fifth Avenue Spa in San Rafael.
At The Fifth Avenue Spa, skilled aestheticians buff and beautify patrons amidst soothing melodies, fragrant aromas, and sparkling candles. Waxing services run 15–60 minutes, and efficiently deforest groves of unwanted hair, leaving bodies smooth enough to impersonate bronze statues during botched stadium heists. Silkify nether-regions with a bikini wax ($25+) or a full, front-to-back Brazilian wax ($45+) for an underpants-only tropical vacation. A hirsute arm ($45 full arm) or leg ($25 half leg, $45 full leg) can transform into a gleaming, beach-ready limb, while fuzzy backs morph into sleek, dolphin-like dorsals ($45+).
The Fifth Avenue Spa boasts a chic, modern interior strewn with carefully arranged planters of flowers to remind hair that beautiful things grow only where they're wanted.
The Fifth Avenue Spa
The staff at The Fifth Avenue Spa showers clients with a repertoire of soothing treatments amid white leather couches and swaying sprays of cut flowers. Décor characterized by shades of sand lets accents of purple leap from sunset photographs, blooming orchids, and images of flying people-eaters gracing the walls. With contented sighs drifting free after massages and body wraps, patrons shutter electronic devices so as not to break the relaxing spell. The intimately lit treatment rooms make eyelids increasingly heavy and delight off-leash shadow puppets during waxing treatments and facials.
