Like an unemployed younger brother, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert: for $45, you get two Brazilian waxes at The Pretty Kitty, valid at the Chula Vista or San Diego locations (a $90 value).
Known as a specialty Brazilian boutique, The Pretty Kitty utilizes an efficient proprietary technique mastered by owner Tricia Hetherington and her team of waxing technicians. Never double dipping their waxing sticks, the aestheticians effectively eradicate bikini-area hairs with a complete Brazilian wax in 10–15 minutes, or the same amount of time it takes to traverse Rio de Janeiro by pogo stick. The quick method helps to reduce the pain induced by unnecessarily prolonged goodbyes to hair, and customers can also purchase a topical anesthetic at the boutique to apply before the appointment.
The Pretty Kitty
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
