What happens inside West Hollywood's Stark Waxing Studio is quite miraculous. To put it simply — and in the wise words of Mr. Miyagi — the services rendered at Stark are a quick succession of "wax on, wax off." Compliments of the imported French blue hard wax (no cloth strips!), the hair removal process becomes all but painless. I know, it's one of those "have to see it to believe it" situations, so get yourself to Stark immediately. The aestheticians are pruning pros: from a Brazilian bikini wax and underarms to brow shaping and leg hair, each process is seamless, clean (anti-double dipping!), and skin nurturing. It doesn't hurt, either, that they use jojoba and lavender-peppermint oil to soothe sensitive areas — it's a borderline spa day experience. And because the blue wax hardens to the hair and not your skin, you walk out feeling soft, smooth, and with nary a hint of redness. Every Stark session is synonymous with ouch-less waxing, and grooming maintenance is no longer a dreaded chore. Not to wax poetic, but blue is the new black. Just sayin'.
