What You'll Get
Although the bikini wax is not the oldest waxing procedure, over time it has become far more popular than its predecessor, the mankini wax. Celebrate smooth swim lines with today's Groupon: for $49, you get three Brazilian bikini waxes at la vie Zen s.p.a. (a $195 value), located on Madison Avenue between 48th and 49th streets.
La vie Zen s.p.a. provides a full range of beautifying treatments, including waxing services performed by gentle, experienced technicians. The triple bikini-waxing package depilates the bikini area for a smoother, softer finish than shaving or macheteing, leaving behind stubble-free skin. Waxed hair is removed completely from the roots up, extending the time between treatments and eliminating the possibility of grouchy, unsightly keratin Loraxes camping out on cuticular stumps. Space out your treatments to remain fuzz-free for weeks, or schedule strategically placed treatments that coincide with a summer's worth of bikini pie-eating contests.
La vie Zen s.p.a.'s tranquil retreat atmosphere sets a soothing, Zen-inspired backdrop for any treatment. Before taking a single step on the path to bikini enlightenment, nestle into the resting lounge with a tray of water, tea, and snacks accompanied by a Madison Avenue view.
New York magazine featured la vie Zen s.p.a. and praised its attention to detail, ambience, and services. Citysearchers give the spa a perfect five-star average, and 10 Yelpers bestow an average of four stars.
- In feeling and in fact, there’s no less Zenlike location than Madison Avenue and 48th Street. Yet mother-daughter spa owners Nancy and Bernice Luk have brought a dose of serenity to Brooke BlackBerry and Brad Briefcase amid midtown’s office towers. Every detail of this relaxation station has been thought out, from jade-bracelet locker key chains to calligraphied name tags on clients' snack plates to indecently soft white robes. The spa’s compact but uncramped space, done in soothing shades of sea foam and driftwood, offers two lounges for sipping organic tea, munching on fruit and nuts, and flipping through fashion magazines before, between, or after treatments. The Luks have sought out well-qualified, experienced personnel – Karen Tina Harrison, New York magazine
