We Wax Poetic July 23 2014, 0 Comments

How are Urbaca's waxing services special?  First of all, location, location, location!  They take place in a private space in our spa, where we have both a shower and rest room available for you.

We use high quality waxes that do not super heat, therefore are less apt to burn than less expensive waxes.  We only use waxes formulated for sensitive skin types.  

We never double dip!  We use a fresh stick every time which costs more in supplies but your health is of utmost importance.  

If you are prone to ingrown hairs we have finishing products and equipment we can use to inhibit breakouts.

Fully equipped for head to toe waxing, we specialize in brows, bikinis and Brazilians.

Sherry Teaches Brazilian How-To Paul Mitchell The School PDX July 03 2014, 0 Comments

Ah the beauty school days of half sticks and half muslins!  Yesterday I taught some awesomely curious and very personable students at Paul Mitchell The School downtown about brazilian waxing.  This was my second time at the school, I taught a peel class last time.  I love student energy + hope I was able to impart some bit of esthetic wisdom.  xo
