I’m a champion for grooming. BUT. I hate the grueling time it takes to run all over town to get our waxing, threading, extensions (lashes), etc. That’s why when Strip:the Ministry of Waxing & Browhaus opened up in Nolita…I was besides myself.
One half of the joint (Strip) is dedicated to getting rid of hair including the chocolate waxing and the relatively painless IPL (laser treatment that uses pulses of light so it’s more gentle yet effective). The other half (Browhaus) is all about replacing, enhancing hair such as your lashes or brows. I’ve sent many people to get the Brow Resurrection…which is a soy-ink temporary tattoo that fixes overplucked, “betty boop” brows.
And just this week…they launched the Brazilian Facial. Um…er…auh…it’s a facial for “down there”. Yup…treatments that smooth out the texture…clarify pores…all that good stuff for your most private area. I have not tried it out…but you gotta give it to Ramon Padilla, the director of the store, for thinking outside the…ah ham…”box”! They also introduced mink lash extensions. Yup..it’s real mink, but don’t worry…it was combed off the animal, not skinned. When I first discovered Strip and Browhaus…I just had to share the one-stop-grooming-shop with our Fox 5 viewers.
