Smooth Operator

You’ve tried it all: shaving, Nair-ing, even super-pricey laser treatments.

And you’re still faced with a hairy situation every few weeks.

Try calling Leah Nacion, owner of The Waxing Company, which opens tomorrow.

Whether you want a plain old regulation bikini wax or a full Brazilian with a heart-shaped landing strip adorned with Swarovski crystal, Nacion delivers. (The crystals, by the way, are a sort of temporary tattoo that are applied in any shape and last up to three weeks.)

Her new salon is a mini-oasis in McCully Shopping Center, with three private treatment rooms and a long menu of special services. Along with waxing just about any body part, there’s eyebrow threading and tinting, eyelash perms and tinting, and even bleaching services to help if your unmentionable areas have any pigmentation problems.

And there are package prices too. In case, you know, you need the whole ball of wax.

The Waxing Company, McCully Shopping Center, corner of Kapi‘olani Blvd. and McCully Street, 808.952.6500.
