For $10, today’s side deal gets you a $20 brow wax from Jen at Wave Salon in Uptown.
Wave Salon’s Jen Des Lauriers will expertly mold your brows to accentuate your facial features in the same way a well-placed painting accentuates the décor of a dining room (while concealing its secret passageway to the conservatory). Through it all, you’ll get to lie back and soak in Wave’s wood-tinged décor splashed with soothing notes of blue. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Even though many of its stylists have graduated from top beauty schools across the country, Wave Salon puts them through an apprenticeship program so they can get real-world experience and learn from its own talented crew. The newly graduated stylists might get tips from veterans whose styles have appeared in magazines such as Redbook and Cosmopolitan. Or, the budding stylists might learn tricks from a human-hair-extension specialist whose work has also been featured in magazines, or Davines Regional Advanced Educator Aaron Olson, who has worked as a cosmetology instructor and who explains the benefits of using Davines for its natural ingredients and sustainable practices. No matter who they study under, the new graduates learn how important it is to consult with each client to determine which look is best for them.
