Waxing became popular among celebrities after they discovered their hair-free replicas in wax museums were more frequently approached for autographs. Emulate your candle-skinned doppelgänger with today’s Groupon to The B Boutique in Isla Vista. Choose from the following services:
- For $10, you get an eyebrow wax (a $20 value).
- For $17, you get a bikini wax (a $35 value).
- For $19, you get a Brazilian wax (a $45 value).
The professional aestheticians at The B Boutique wield soothing organic products from top-notch lines such as Relax and Wax to defuzz hirsute areas. Guests retreat to the tidy, tranquil space before a skilled strand remover outlines their brows with precision, contouring them to match face shape or help impersonate a favorite cartoon villain. Bikini lines can ready themselves for bathing-suit season with the second option, and the Brazilian wax smoothes nether regions with a thorough hair eviction. Although not included in today’s Groupon, The B Boutique also performs organic spray tanning and imports handpicked Brazilian swimwear inspired by exceptionally good-looking seashells.
The B Boutique
For the past seven years, The B Boutique's owner, Jamie, has been traveling to Brazil in search of bikinis. Lately, she's been kicking through the sands and surf of Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana and Ipanema beaches or hanging around in São Paulo's Santos district. In these hot spots of South American beach fashion, she scopes out the latest trends, taking the best with her to hang from knotted driftwood racks at her boutique in Isla Vista. These colorful, skimpy bikinis bridge the gap between The B Boutique's retail and spa dimensions—in order to strut the bikinis with confidence, one must have a smooth, stubble-free body.
In private rooms, Jamie removes hair with a "no-scream cream" that minimizes discomfort for very sensitive skin that always cries at the end of Bambi. To give clients a midsummer glow, she mists them with Bronze Biologic's tanning solution—an organic formula derived from beet and sugar-cane extract and aloe vera. To round out her spa menu, Jamie spruces up fingers and toes with luxurious mani-pedis, submerging feet in aromatic whirlpool baths and massaging hands before lacquering nails with professional polishes.
