Extra hair, like an unwanted houseguest, can only be removed by sneaking up on it with wax strips or threatening to make it pay rent. Banish strands from bikini shorelines with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get two bikini waxes from Ms. Esthetician in Rochester. Waxes may be split between two people, but appointments must fall on the same day.
An Aveda-trained one-woman show, Ms. Esthetician treats her clients to bare-down-there waxing in a relaxed environment free of pretense and superfluous fur. Suit up for summer without revealing peach-fuzzed perimeters by slipping into Ms. Esthetician’s shop for a pair of Old Faithfuls, her version of a classic bikini wax. Quick wax work strips lower torsos of unsightly tufts and frees skin from the tyranny of excess fringe, leaving behind surfaces as smooth as a saxophone solo played by a soft-serve ice-cream cone. Pre-wax prep should include thorough cleansing, moisturizing, and waiting until afterward to tan or enter a beach volleyball contest.
Though her business may be focused on detaching hairs, licensed esthetician Tiffany Taylor offers anything but detached service. Instead, she champions an "anti-spa" approach, cultivating a warmer, more relaxed atmosphere than what's found in many conventional beauty venues. At ME Beauty, she and her staff chat breezily with clients, refer to their treatments by witty names—for example, a chin wax is a "chinchilla"—and wear regular clothing instead of the overly official uniforms or hazmat suits a lot of other spas require.
Although their attitudes may be casual, their dedication to their craft is anything but. They specialize exclusively in waxing for men and women, boasting rigorous training in the art of swift hair-removal. As a result, they can remove unwanted strands from most any body part between the toes and brows, such as the arms, chest, and bikini areas. They utilize a brand of professional wax sold out of Australia, and never double-dip during appointments. For sensitive zones, clients can purchase Dr. Edna's Bare Ease Cream right at the salon to apply to themselves prior to treatments, which can help lessen the treatment's sting.
