Constantly plucking body hair is one of life's most tedious and futile chores, like cleaning feathers from a wind tunnel or vacuuming the vacuum. Foil your follicles once and for all with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services at Lola on Northwest Raleigh Street. Appointments are available before 3 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Owner and chief aesthetician Amanda Drak helms Lola's one-on-one soothing spa confines with a personable approach, whisking away unwanted hair with high-quality soy-based wax and careful precision. Lola's wax detains stray brows ($17) and upper-lip hair ($7) with the gentle but firm demeanor usually reserved for principals at Care Bear elementary schools. Bid farewell to underarm follicles ($17) or score a full-arm ($35) or half-arm ($25) waxing to ready upper limbs for aerodynamic speed walking. Full-leg ($55), half-leg ($35), and bikini ($27) waxes are an ideal subtraction to any beach vacation wardrobe, and a full-face wax ($37) awakens people whose whiskers have grown unruly after they have snoozed against a mountain tree for years.
At Spa Lola, the goal is simple: to make all visitors, from veteran spa-goers to first-time guests, feel welcome. To this end, the staff focuses on cultivating a quaint, calming, and unpretentious atmosphere. Owner Amanda Drak, an aesthetician with over a decade of waxing experience, removes unwanted hair with antibacterial Nufree soy products. She also performs complex and nurturing facials in the shabby-chic spa, using plant-based Yonka products. By harnessing not only the fragrant components of each ingredient, but also the vitamins, fruit acids, and other trace elements, Yonka’s elixirs and beauty products help Drak revitalize the skin and thank the nose for making it through your recent protest on taking out the trash.
