Best of Boston

1997 Best Waxing

Anne-Cecile Curot

It’s bad enough getting waxed—best to do it in a fun, distracting atmosphere (with Donna Summer cooing softly in the background). What makes this place unique is Cecile, a charming French woman who brought a trade secret with her when she came to Boston— azulene , a green wax that’s as soothing as such a thing can be. And her efficiency and professionalism will prevent you from wondering what you’re doing there in the first place!
