Hairless Wonders: Who knew getting smooth could be so sweet?

With Jahn, at The Wax Bar, I went for more traditional treatments: brows, lips and legs. This minimalist mod establishment sits between Pasta Bella and Tobacco Plus on 15th Avenue Northwest in Ballard, and while there are many waxing options in the city, this is the only one that has a happy hour with reduced prices for brows and lips and a liquor license that lets it serve beer, including my favorite non-beer-tasting beverage, Lindemans Framboise Lambic. Yummy.
Jahn is a pro. She’s calm, friendly and informative every step of the way. And she specializes in 15-minute Brazilians.
“I don’t know what it would take to shock me,” said Jahn, who has also done Brazilians on men. “I’m so comfortable with it, it’s like I’m talking to my best friend when I’m with a client.”
Jahn’s waxing ranges from $12 for “happy hour” brows to $65 for a Brazilian and $40 for backs.
The Wax Bar also stays open until 9 p.m., giving women squeezed for time more options.
