I've lived in New York and Los Angeles, and I've been waxed at a lot of different places. In NYC, I'd gone to J Sisters, Completely Bare, and Bliss. In L.A., I've been to Queen Bee / Jodi Shays, Pink Cheeks, Damone Roberts, and Blue Medical Spa. At Blue, I even made it through the pain of two laser hair removal sessions before I decided that, although waxing is much more expensive if you calculate the total cost we'll spend over the years, it hurts a heck of a lot less. I mean seriously. Exactly how much pain are we willing to tolerate down there, ladies? Enter Trilogy. Least painful wax ever. My appointment was with Bella, and the combination of high-quality hard wax and awesome technique ("it's all in the wrist") ended up meaning that I experienced virtually no pain. Trilogy gets my vote. The staff was warm and inviting, the products smelled divine, the environment was clean, the ocean was steps away. Perfect.
Pros: pain-free waxing. wonderful amenities, products, and staff.
Cons: you can get waxed elsewhere for WAY cheaper.
