    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! We think waxing is a walk in the park compared to something like wearing heels all day! But for any nervous waxing virgins out there, let us put your mind at ease with some Parissa tips to reduce the ouch-factor!

    Before you start:

    Our friends at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics just released their new report, Market Shift, and (drumroll please), Parissa is on the short list of companies that “broke the mold."   Here's the report: http://bit.ly/rqyvjj

    *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.

    So, you're an average dude, bombarded with images, whispers and mysterious words about manscaping - and to be honest you barely know what most of it means. Or, more importantly, what it means to you. Here’s Parissa’s Waxing Guru speaking the truth about fixing the furry forehead.

    No, this is not going to be about male grooming, it's about one of the questions I often get from our customers, asking if we are vegetarian friendly.

    I have to admit I hate using the term Arm Pit, but it sounded better than "the-area-under-your-arm-where-super-dark-coarse-hair-grows nirvana".  It feels like time to speak out about the divinity of not having to touch fingertips to the ceiling and blade to skin on a daily basis, just so I can wear tanks, tee's or tubes. Yes, I have thick hair, in fact I've grown more since I started typing - but the fact is that most of us have thick *ahem* armpit hair and inevitably have to shave it regularly.

    Here's my advice - STOP THAT!
