Since the discovery of electricity, many candles were either melted to use for hair removal or cast in Disney musicals. Reap the silky-smooth benefits of wax with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three Brazilian bikini waxes at Le Salon Nowel in Astoria (an $84 value).
Le Salon Nowel's skilled aestheticians unfuzz clients with an array of gentle waxing services. By forgoing the razors and military-grade flamethrowers required by other defoliating methods, technicians at Le Salon Nowel are able to rid the bikini area of unwanted hair while preserving relative comfort. GiGi wax infused with honey demonstrates kindness to sensitive skin and unblinking firmness with recalcitrant hairs. Skin may remain smooth and free of follicular furnishings for three weeks to one month after each treatment. Call ahead to schedule your first Brazilian bikini wax.
Le Salon Nowel
For more than 12 years, the owner of Le Salon Nowel worked in a French salon in Manhattan, mastering many unique and fashion-forward hair techniques. When she opened her own salon in 2006, she brought those skills with her to Queens, creating a list of services ranging from formaldehyde-free Brazilian blowouts to French-style mani-pedis. The salon's stylists can conquer all hair needs, from adding color and dimension with highlights, or defrizzing locks with Japanese thermal hair straightening, somehow getting around the sun's vice-like patent on heat. The staff also continues their perfection hold on such face treatments as yellow peeling, a chemical peel that sloughs away dead skin cells to beautify faces along with newly renewed 'dos.
