Best Fuzz Removal

  • Strip Ministry of Waxing

    56 Spring St., nr. Lafayette St. 212-431-1121;

    Considering its origins—Singapore, a country where public spitting is a ticketable offense—the fact that cleanliness rules at downtown’s latest hair-removal emporium makes perfect sense. Fast-food-style menus lay out the myriad hair-removal services, broken down by method (soft wax, hard wax, or IPL) and body area (a great many). Each of the nine treatment rooms contains heated beds and squeeze toys to grip during those painful moments, while a fastidiously trained staff make the hair-removal process as enjoyable, or at least tolerable, as possible.
