American women are beauty freaks. Yet, I found out that in America there is barely no waxing culture. It doesn’t mean that women doesn’t wax, it just means that the methods to wax are not good. They mainly use the stripes which rip the hair instead of tearing off the root of it. Hair grow faster, thicker when they don’t get stuck under the skin and then pimples emerge. I never found a beauty shop in NYC where the wax is made, applied and removed with the hand not to mention the honey one until I stumbled upon Julien Farel, an excellent French hair dresser who does the perfect haircut that last perfectly for a couple of month. It better be because he is quite expensive. Though you paid what you get ! Julien Farel is also the official hairdresser of the US Open ! Not only he also has a beauty spa in his salon where he offers the “european“ waxing : $ 75 bikini and half lower leg ! I warmly recommended. RB.
