It’s been over a decade since Carrie was scandalized by her first Brazilian wax on Sex and the City, and from the look of things, the totally bare style isn’t going anywhere soon.
So welcome Birthday Suit, a new waxing salon that celebrated its grand opening this July on Rainbow Boulevard. The spa, owned by local couple Stacey and Jason Laricchia, offers a practical take on hair removal with an inexpensive a la carte menu that features face and body waxes starting at $5 and a full Brazilian going for $35 ($20 for first-time clients). The spa also gives 30-minute facials and has a children’s playroom on site, a nod to busy moms who won’t need a babysitter to get cleaned up. The Laricchias like to say that your birthday suit is the hardest to maintain.
Just remember Samantha’s advice to Carrie about going bare: “It makes you do crazy things. Be careful who you invite to Brazil.” 7645 S. Rainbow Blvd., Suite 101, 425-1343.
