- Lonni of Lonni's Punani dispenses with all niceties with the candid name of her Potrero Hill waxing service. Her motto? "Keeping San Francisco smooth one pussy at a time." The name and motto may be blunt, even crass, but the end results will indeed leave a woman's naughty bits smooth and ingrown-free. Lonni, a certified aesthetician and a pastry chef with a degree in sociology, forgoes mood lighting and new age music for bright environs, a rocking soundtrack, and fingers quick enough to make you forget she's ripping hair off your most sensitive regions…And she doesn't just stick to the punani: "manzilians" are happily performed as well. – San Francisco Bay Guardian
Lonni specializes in one particular service: waxing away unwanted hair for women as well as men. The Aveda Institute-trained aesthetician performs signature Brazilian and manzilian treatments, and can quickly eliminate fuzz from limbs, faces, and probably most sweaters as well. Her smoothing work has earned praise from Allure magazine and DailyCandy, and the spa earned the San Francisco Bay Guardian's 2008 award for Best Wax.
