What You'll Get
Like your unemployed former guidance counselor, 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 $25, you’ll get $55 worth of waxing services for men or women from the aptly named WAX, located in the heart of Inman Park.
For those strand-stuffed spaces (your back, behind your knees, your boss's neck), it can be hard to smooth things out on your own. Instead of tracking someone down who is willing to shave you, it's much faster and safer to come to a professional waxing studio. Like neutron bombs of grooming, the expert staff at WAX will put you at ease and work fast to get you smoother than a hairless pup with minimal discomfort. The clean and modern décor reflects WAX's high standards of cleanliness and the staff's laid-back, comfortable attitude.
Ladies, spend your Groupons in its entirety with a Brazilian wax ($55), or put it toward a full leg wax ($60). Combine a few services—like a face ($35) and underarm ($18) combo—to add up to your Groupon amount. Gentlemen can use their Groupon to wax the buttocks (including cheeks; $25) and inner thighs ($25). Make a barbershop-supplement combo with back of the neck, nostrils, ears, sideburns, and center brow ($8 to $15 each).
With waxing, you avoid razor burn and painful cuts from shaving too quickly. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than other forms of hair removal. Use this Groupon to prep for a vacation, a shirtless calendar photo shoot, or a swim race against your bitter rivals at St. Aquaman Prep Academy. Call or go online to schedule your appointment.
Daily Candy raves about owner Myka Barbato's customized wax and post-treatment oils. Though most customers are too busy attempting light-speed travel with their new aerodynamic, hair-free bodies, a handful of Yelpers and Citysearchers give Wax five stars:
- Its [sic] stylish and they're always playing good music so you don't feel like you're in a hospital or some weirdo's back room...super friendly and hospitable...made me feel really comfortable...painless! – luvjoi l., Yelp
- A+ for use of hard wax, which is less painful and better on the skin, and the blend of tea tree and lavender essential oil, which is both soothing and great smelling! – Lucy W., Yelp
- It was so well designed, comfortable and modern...This was the best brazilian ever. She was fast, loved the fact that no wax reuse or double dipping. Highly professional. – DAugustus, Citysearch
The Wax Protector
Ben Leslie wasn’t interested in playing god; he was just tired of getting picked on. The fourth grader oscillated the hair-dryer over a large cube of wax from a practiced distance, not enough to melt it, but enough to soften. It was his last one. When it became pliable, he lifted it in his hands, fingers sinking into its girth, now heavier with liquidity. With both hands, he mashed it against the figure in the corner, filling in an asymmetrical curve in what looked increasingly like a hip.
Ben took a few steps back and observed his finished creation in its translucent, static glory. It was a golem of wax, misshapen and unpracticed, but firmly planted on its feet and unmistakably humanoid. Its eyes were hollow concaves, molded by an old billiard ball he kept for luck. Its mouth was a slit from a pizza cutter. Satisfied, he unrolled the ancient calfskin the old hermit gave him, and began to read aloud the spell of life. That redheaded ox Brendan Proshetti was sure going to be sorry at recess tomorrow. Everything was finally about to go right.
