Russia has always been a bastion of stoic strength; its attractive citizens are known to be both efficient and emotion-free. There was an era when America feared Russians. That era has returned.
The red scare is back – to make you beautiful!
Overgrown mammal? Manual manscaping can quickly become a complicated affair, so if you’d rather be a dolphin than a bear, head over to the Russian aestheticians at Beauty and Youth Spa. Nowhere do they rip out unwanted body hair better, and with more zeal.
These trained professionals are not interested in emotions, just results. Scream if it hurts, that won’t elicit any sympathy. You are to be plucked, not coddled. Especially when a full back or chest “regular” wax costs just $18.
There is also a “sensitive” ($23) and “Pain Free” wax ($45). Sorry? Aren’t hair follicles being mercilessly ripped out of the epidermis? Then there is no such thing as pain-free wax. Best to go cheap and get it over with. The hair-raising experience will be fast and furious, but soon – satisfaction. Smooth as latex.
Beauty and Youth Spa performs tame treatments, too. Still in a mood for masochism? Allow the ladies to remove your ear-wax and noxious toxins with a procedure known as “Candling” ($50) and then tell us all about it.
We’re afraid. Nuclear winter afraid.
Back or Chest Wax: $18
