It’s August, and in my opinion the warmest month of the summer. We are all enjoying as much sun and water as possible before the gloom and fog of the Bay no longer wears off by noon, and the Santa Ana winds pick up in So Cal. Bathing suits, summer dresses and daisy dukes call for a little extra attention in areas sometimes ignored during the winter (especially if you’re single). If you haven’t yet tried waxing and want to give it a whirl, or if you are looking for a new place to get rid of some unwanted hair, here are a few places to check out:
Venus Salon: Ask for Phong
2625 Decoto Road
Union City, CA 94587-4903
Lonni’s Punani Waxing: So I hear that she isn’t always the warmest, sweetest thing (but look at the name, it says feisty) however everyone agrees nice or not she does a damn good job.
1756 18th St
(at Carolina St)
San Francisco, CA 94107
Get Waxed: Ask for Shayla, although the owner Elisha is also fabulous!
300 Westminster Ave
Venice, CA 90291
Brow Mantra: Coco does an amazing job with the wax. If you want to get threaded (eyebrows, lip etc) Angel is usually my man.
16300 Crenshaw Blvd
Torrance, CA 90504
Now I haven’t tried all these places out myself, but I have received these as recommendations from a few lovely ladies.
