"Upon stepping into Trim, it’s clear from the numerous hair-removal tools, waxing stations and eager aestheticians that the waxing salon takes an obsessive approach to hair removal—in a good way. Trim carries vitamin-enriched waxes for different skin types and sensitivity levels, and sells products to help keep skin soft and smooth afterward (like bikini brushes and exfoliants). We started with the basic eyebrow clean-up treatment ($17) and were led to a reclining chair in a brightly lit workstation. She quickly transformed our unkempt brows into pretty curves.

Chicago Magazine / August 2011

"Hair removal is a time-consuming and expensive routine, which is why we like Trim for its efficiency and affordability. Specializing in women’s and men’s waxing, threading, and tweezing, the salon’s two locations make booking an appointment easy, and the strict no-double-dipping policy for germfree waxing confers peace of mind. Best of all, Trim’s brisk and expert service comes at reasonable prices: Eyebrow touchups start at $17. A basic bikini wax costs $25; a full Brazilian starts at $55."

Paper Magazine / November 2011

"No one enjoys having body hair removed with hot wax. But if it has to happen, don’t you want a wax technician who treats it as an indulgence, not a torture method? Trim’s classy lounge space and menu of services—including the 'bedazzled' bikini wax, which promises the application of Swarovski 'skin jewelry'—will have you rethinking everything you thought you knew about hair removal."

Our very own esthetician Karen Choi on the Renude Scrub:

"Really good for delicate areas [like the bikini line]. It contains ingredients such as walnut shells, volcanic ash and charcoal. Everything is natural, with all essential oils and no fragrance."

Summer is upon us, and that means time to head to the local spa to make sure every little last hair is waxed before your beach debut -- especially if we have to put up with the sight of you in a thong (although we really prefer you stick to a non-European style, thank you very much).

In summers' past, the Brazilian wax was the new naughty “it” treatment that everyone attempted to bear their way through, leaving you as hairless as an 8-year old girl.
