Brazilian / Bikini Waxing

Whether preparing for "beach etiquette" or if you are wanting to give a sexy surprise. Choose the standard bikini or upgrade to a brazilian and you can leave a landing strip, a triangle, or remove it all. Our hair removal services can be customized for each individual.

Leg Waxing

Ever shave your legs in the morning to find you have a "12 o'clock shadow" later that day? With regular waxing, you can turn your prickly cactus legs into soft, smooth works of art. Choose between a half leg (knee up or knee down) or full leg for your perfect solution. Make it a combo by adding a bikini or brazilian wax.

Face / Brow

Do you have ugly, persistent lip hair, the ever classic uni-brow, or even teen-wolf ears? Waxing is an easy solution for these pesky problems. Whenever getting any kind of hair removal on the face, it is extremely important to have an experienced professional perform the work because the face is more prone to irritation and rashes if the waxing wasn't performed properly.

Back / Chest

Okay gentlemen, this one is for you especially. Hair, when groomed properly is not only sexy, but a sign of masculinity. Hair on the back is the sign of an ape! Did you know that to the ladies, a hairy back can be one of the biggest turn-offs? On that note, how many women do you think like the 70's disco patch of hair coming out of your shirt?

Appointment Policies

To better serve you, we offer online appointments to all of our customers. We also take appointments by phone and text. Let us know what works for you and we will do our best to work with your schedule. Please understand that our staff members have families to feed, bills to pay and responsibilities just like you. This is their job and livelihood. When they aren't servicing clients, they are not earning any money.

Two's Company, Three's a Crowd (Friend Policy)

To provide optimal services, only the client and Waxing provider are allowed in the treatment room during an appointment. Except for clients under the age of 18, where we invite a parent or guardian to be on hand. Sorry Fido, but we don't allow pets in the treatment room either.

Child Policy

We LOVE kids! If you bring yours with you to your appointment, please keep in mind that it is a very small place. If your child can stay seated like they would have to at school while you have services preformed, by all means bring them in. If they have trouble staying seated, it may not be the best place to make them come as we do not have anything to entertain them.

Appointment Reminder Policy

We understand that life can get busy, so we send out reminders by either email or text messaging. When you set up your appointment, you can choose which reminder you would like. (Both if you want). If for any reason you don't want a reminder, you may log into your account and turn the reminders off.
