In medieval times, maidens moisturized arid limbs with goat's milk and removed unwanted hair with a mixture of parchment paper and sealing wax. Experience a more modern form of beautification with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services at Silhouettes Salon. This Groupon is valid for any waxing service, excluding Brazilian waxing. Silhouettes Salon's trained technicians keep skin surfaces smooth with an array of waxing services. Floor-to-ceiling windows grant natural light unlimited access to the contented countenance of each client as they kick back and allow a friendly wax-slinger to coax unwanted follicles from the body's most heavily stranded areas, including upper lips ($10), legs ($45 for full), and bikinis ($25). Update eye awnings with a face-flattering eyebrow shaping ($13+), or clear underarms ($20) of wayward fuzz to show off rarely seen armpit tattoos. Hirsute humans in need of a more aerodynamic form can uncover sleek skin by evicting bristles along the arm ($30 for full), back, or chest ($30+).
Silhouettes By The Beach
Light streams through floor-to-ceiling windows inside the aptly named Silhouettes By The Beach, a beauty emporium located steps away from the sparkling waves of Ventura Harbor. During hair appointments, clients lounge in squared-off, custom-made purple chairs lined up in front of head-to-toe mirrors. These reflect stylists as they snip split ends, attach extensions, or coat strands in protein treatments—good for locks that lift a lot of weights.
Elsewhere in the soothing confines, the salon’s manicure stations boast OPI nail lacquer that blankets fingernails and toenails with bright pops of color. Aestheticians perform custom facial treatments capped off with soothing massages of the neck, arms, hands, and face, and massage therapists use Swedish techniques to banish tension throughout the body.
