Like an unemployed younger brother, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Rid stray strands with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get $60 worth of wax or facial services at Glamformation in Lake Oswego.
Licensed esthetician Laura Brewster enhances figures with a wide range of wax and facial treatments. Fine-tune facial expressions with an eyebrow shaping ($15), remove fine hairs and pasted-on novelty mutton chops with a lip, chin, and brow wax ($40), or tend to subequatorial regions with a full Brazilian ($75 for first time, $50 for maintenance). To ease pain and for better results, guests should prepare any areas of dewhiskerment with thorough exfoliation, cleaning, and a champagne toast. Waxing swiftly clears follicular forests for up to two to four weeks, without the itchiness of shaving, harsh chemicals of hair-removal creams, or heinous scents of fire.
Or, reinvigorate your façade with one of Glamformation’s facials, such as the cleansing, toning, and considerately punctual Express facial ($35), or the one-hour Natural Balance facial, which thoroughly moisturizes dry skin with deep-pore cleansing, customized exfoliation, and a grimace expelling massage ($60).
Glamformation-The Beauty Studio
For eight years, Laura Brewster worked for a meditation company as a life coach, helping people find balance in their hectic everyday lives. Though the work was rewarding, the coaching took place over the phone, and Laura soon began craving one-on-one interaction. She finally quit the job she loved, earned her aesthetician certificate, and opened Glamformation-The Beauty Studio—a tranquil salon that specializes in waxing and Laura's time-tested life-coaching services. The specialist calls on her beauty-school experience to wax almost every bodily zone on both men and women. Through a process she has dubbed Emotional Transformation, Laura aims to build her clients' self-confidence through a series of positive and constructive conversations in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
