Summertime means bathing suits and bathing suits mean exposing parts of your body that had in previous months been hidden under clothes and/or a light dusting of hair. To the rescue comes European Wax Center, the hair-removal chainlet bent on Chicago domination. On Monday, July 29, they'll be opening their latest salon in Lincoln Park at Clark and Belden.
Euro Wax Salon's motto is, "waxing for all," and they do offer an impressive array of options. Women can get hair removed pretty much anywhere, from popular spots like the upper lip, armpit and bikini line to hands, shoulders, feet and toes. The men's menu is equally diverse, with services available for chest, back, arms and even inside your nose (ouch).
Need an incentive to check out this space? Any customers that stop in on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday will receive free unlimited services if they book a reservation (they're required). But the free services don't end after the salon's first week in business, first time European Wax customers land one free waxing session and women can choose from eyebrow, underarm or bikini; men from eyebrow, ear or nose. To make reservations, call 872-206-2396.
