With so many last-minute wedding planning decisions that arise in the days leading up to the big day, the last thing on a bride's mind is shaving — which is why getting waxed is the better option. Not only is it one less thing brides have to worry about, a good wax delivers longer-lasting results so that silky smooth fuzz-free skin can be enjoyed while wearing bikinis and lacy underthings during the honeymoon too! From brows to Brazilians, we've rounded up the best waxing salons in Los Angeles to ensure LA brides are smooth from head to toe when they walk down the aisle.
Stark Waxing Studio
Waxing is the name of the game at this buzzed-about waxing-only salon. With locations in Silver Lake and West Hollywood and a full menu of facial and body waxing services — from eyebrows to bikinis—they make it super easy for brides-to-be to get smooth before their big day. The salon is praised for its gentle, almost painless waxing technique that utilizes hard blue wax formulated especially for sensitive skin.
Ma Maison de Beauté
This dreamy, light-filled West Hollywood haven makes the daunting hair removal process decidedly glamorous with its plush all-white interiors and sparkling chandelier. Waxing services range from upper lip to legs and reasonable pricing ensures you don't break your wedding budget.
Popular among the A-list crowd, Wax's three LA locations make visitors feel like stars with its gorge décor—think cobalt blue tufted sofas, bold red furnishings, and ornate mirrors. From underarms to derriere—you name it, their skilled aestheticians will wax it. To boot, they also offer men's waxing services so don't be afraid to bring in your soon-to-be-hubby with you.
Queen Bee Salon
This charming salon's expert estheticians—or as they call themselves, waxing bees—are passionate about hair removal and you can feel the good vibes as soon as you walk in the door of one of their delightfully decorated LA locations. Queen Bee takes the ouch out of waxing with its soft, warm, made in Italy wax that adheres only to your hair and not your skin. Even waxing virgins will feel at ease here.
The Wax Shop
Remove all your unwanted hair — even those pesky, hard-to-reach spots with the help of The Wax Shop in Beverly Hills. The celebrity-frequented salon has been in the waxing game since 2004. Owner Tanya Lisitsa is beloved by regulars for her quick and gentle service. But, what really sets the salon apart is its use of pure organic wax that leaves your skin feeling baby soft.
