Between the temperance movement, the tireless campaigning, and pre-Industrial Revolution hygiene, poor Susan B. Anthony had it rough. But the lady did have one advantage: She never had to live through the indignity of a Brazilian wax. You, on the other hand, put the “suffer” in suffragette. So exercise your right to a quick and painless experience at Ballard’s new Wax Bar, opening today. With almost a decade at Habitude under her belt, owner Karen Jahn is also a pioneer. Her spotless haven of hair removal takes waxing super seriously, while conjuring an airy and intimate Miami beach-house vibe. Check in at the white leather desk, then sip a glass of Peroni or framboise. Once you’re buzzing, get down to business: Services include face facials, bikini facials, sugaring, and speed waxing. Men are welcome, too, although they might take a little longer. Because when it comes to hirsuteness, we weren’t all created equal. The Wax Bar, 5915 15th Avenue Northwest (206-789-2963 or thewaxbarseattle.com).
