Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
For most of us, hair is a constant battle. If you’re not working on increasing volume or performing a deep moisture treatment on the unruly mane, you’re busy spending the rest of your time plucking, tweezing, shaving and waxing the rest of your body’s fuzz. Often an add-on for salons, we’ve found a spot in Manhattan (three locations, to be exact), where dealing with unwanted hair is the sole focus.
Shobha salons offer an unparalleled experience for safe hair removal with products that contain none of the toxic chemicals found in most salons. With a founder that grew up thinking everyone had a backyard full of fruits and veggies (so there was, of course, no other option) and a horticulturist grandfather, known by many in the community as the “plant doctor,” it’s no wonder Shobha’s tried and tested sugaring system features a sugar and lemon juice based sugaring gel (the healthy alternative to waxing), plus a talc-free powder and reusable denim strips. As Shobha puts it, “natural ingredients mean natural reactions – which for most is no reaction at all!”
If you reside in NYC or happen to be headed that way on a trip, make sure to stop in to one of the Shobha locations, or simply order the kit ($30) to use at home, you’ll be surprised at how easy the clean-up is, and it hurts less than waxing!
