Hair has an annoying habit of growing all over our bodies, which not only looks funny, but also makes it nearly impossible to painlessly remove band-aids or emerge unscathed from a vat of honey. Conquer uncooperative haircoats with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get $69 worth of waxing services at The Wax Bar. Choose between the Ballard or West Seattle locations. The Wax Bar's team of savvy spa specialists smoothes skin and removes pesky body hair through a number of services. Amid a laid-back atmosphere offset with sumptuous black floors, elegant ashen walls, and bar service, patrons can employ wax-wielding mercenaries to evict fur from follicle roots on the chin ($15), full face ($64), or full leg ($69), perfect for one-legged-pant season. The Wax Bar also offers a full line of waxing after-care products as well as other spa services.
The Wax Bar has been featured in numerous publications including Ballard News Tribune and Allure magazine. Citysearchers give The Wax Bar's Ballard location an average of four stars and Yelpers give both the Ballard and West Seattle locations an average of 4.5 stars:
The Wax Bar
Clients relax as they sip beers and tart ciders amid the elegant white décor of The Wax Bar's lobby before following aestheticians back to a private treatment room for one of a broad repertoire of signature hair-removal services. Staff at The Wax Bar's three locations aim to make waxing or a luxurious and dignified experience, soothing clients' nerves with drinks from the bar. Each aesthetician boasts a repertoire of discomfort-minimizing tricks to ensure waxing services for men and women's brows, backs, and bikinis go as swiftly and painlessly as possible. After follicles have said their tearful goodbyes to unwanted hair, aestheticians apply aftercare products and advise clients on the best way to reduce irritation on freshly bare skin. Staff members also offer facials whose targeted therapies incorporate products from Dermalogica, PCA and Somme.
