While on the cozier side, this cheery, sun-filled space is staffed by serious hair-removal specialists that will leave you hair free with minimal pain. We love their attention to detail (they groom every follicle using both wax and thread) and efficiency.

WHY WE LIKE IT
Hair removal can be a painful process, but Shobha makes their treatments as painless as possible (request the numbing lotion if you’re particularly sensitive).
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The wall partitions. Since it's a loft space and they wax super-private areas, full walls between treatment stalls would be nice! (Don't worry, though–the current partitions provide adequate privacy.)
GOOD TO KNOW
Referrals earn you USD 10 towards your next treatment or purchased product. If you’re unsure about your reaction to a treatment, the salon offers free patch testing for many treatments.
