Stark Waxing

Best Brazilian Wax, April 2007
There’s no tacky decor, no austere lighting, no stern Eastern European accents at Silver Lake’s Stark Waxing. Instead, guests find a clean, simple storefront and a young, easygoing team of aestheticians. Their use of hard wax (which sticks to hair, not skin) lessens the procedure’s pain, and while some prefer a lightning-quick technique, Stark’s meticulous attention to eliminating every hair below the equator makes it noteworthy.
