2007 BEST Waxing

Violet Mkhitaryan, Violet Skin

After three decades in the business, spa owner Mkhitaryan has developed a rare power: the ability to make the most uncomfortable of beauty rituals a bit less so, and with pristine results. Whether it’s your first time or your 50th—and whether it’s a standard cleanup or something “a little more expensive”—the motherly aesthetician gets the job done with speed, all the while chattering on amiably in a way more commonly associated with less compromising activities.
