Would you go to a pizza place for sushi? A podiatrist to get your teeth cleaned? Nooooo, of course not. You seek out the people that specialize in what you want. Waxing the City , a franchise our of CO w/an interesting story, is exclusively a body and facial waxing studio located in the Slater 116 building in Totem Lake (next to @tdcurran). No more getting pulled into some weird backroom at the nail salon. These folks know how to wax.
Boys, don't hit the delete button so fast here. That's right, you. You know who I'm talking about. Don't be shy. You might want to take a look in your rear-view mirror on the way to work today (always the best light, says the girl w/tweezers in her console). There is no shame in bringing your man ears, noses, uni-brows in for a clean up. Get that furry back beach ready. This new studio has a super clean new urban feel and they have already been pleasantly surprised by the number of male clientele walking through their doors. And of course, the ladies are filing in too.
Here are a few reasons why:
-All of their licensed estheticians are also "cerologists" (cera=Latin for wax) which means they go through an additional 40 hrs of a "Waxing the City" training program
-Focus on client comfort
-Exclusive rights to their special hard blue wax from Spain (for smaller/sensitive areas). Just lifts the hair without grabbing your skin.
-This is a NO TIPPING studio.
-You get 50% off any service at your first visit, they want to earn your business
This Waxing the City studio is beautiful and has 5 private rooms for services. The staff are all very welcoming and can take appointments or walk-ins. Pricing varies from $12 for a lip or chin to $55 for a women's Brazilian. Full menu w/pricing here. Hours are M-F 9-8, Sat 9-5 and Sun 10-5 and there is street and garage parking. Just in time for summer, right? 11515 124th Ave NE, 425-297-2000. ~j
