    It can happen when you least expect it, and often at the worst possible time.

    You’re on your way to a job interview, weekend get-away or first date when a last minute lipstick check in your rearview mirror reveals the cringe-inciting shadow cast from upper lip hair.  We rub at it in disbelief, curse our so-called friends for not telling us about it then search in our purse in hopes of finding a pair of tweezers, scissors, clippers or tape (regardless of whether these things had previously resided there).

    Fill in the blank: Right now is the best time of year to start waxing my_________.

    Your answer is correct – the truth is, no matter where you are thinking of removing hair, these coming cooler months are the best time to start a brand new waxing regime.

    Why Winter Waxing?
    1. Stage Gauge: Your hair grows in different cycles, more specifically, 3 stages. It’s either growing, dormant or falling out; it can take several waxing treatments to remove all the hairs, depending in which stage they are. A season of covering up allows you those few months to remove the last of your stubbly bits.

    Back to school. Back to rules.

    It’s back to school time, and whether you are a student yourself, or have a brood of school-age kids in your care, this is the time of year for getting back to routines, schedules and the rules.

    We thought this would be a good time to remind you that just because leg-bearing shorts and barely-there bikinis are being put away doesn’t mean you should let your beauty regime slide.

    Pins, pegs, sticks or stems – whatever you call them, your legs are on display this season and keeping them looking great from day to sunshiny day can be a challenge. So here’s the leg up for on those summer gam grievances.

    Leg Lament #1 – Scaly Skin: 

    “The skin on my legs looks like snake skin in the summer from sun, sand and salt water exposure but the last time I coated them with cream, I ended up with greasy marks on my furniture!  How do I moisturize my legs without the oil-slick after effect?”

    In the very early 1900’s, the word “underarm” was considered a taboo, as this would not have been a visible body part in polite social company at the time.  Enter The Roaring 20’s and the sleeveless dresses that came into style during this era, freeing women from the “covered to the wrist” concept of clothing.

    There has been a lot of news about Cameron Diaz and Gwenyth Paltrow taking a stand on letting your bikini line grow "au naturel", so I thought I'd put a few cents worth in as well...

    Having satin-smooth skin that lasts for weeks at a time is one of the major advantages of waxing, especially as bikini season approaches!

    *update* Parissa has just won another award for our facility! The City of North Vancouver's Design Excellence Award - honourable mention!

    Its like breathing in nature itself.  

    We've just moved to our brand new eco-facility here in North Vancouver, BC, where every morning smells fresh and earthy. We're not just surrounded by nature, we're submerged in it, which is exactly part of the plan. Because we had the luxury of building from the ground up, we were able to take every possible effort to design our facility targeting LEED Gold Standards as our goal.
