Our new clean up procedure is a hit. Not only does the tea tree oil remove all sticky residue, it calms the skin so much more quickly that you get to use it sooner!

The end of summer is drawing near
But I'll continue to rip 'til the end of the year.
Summer, spring, winter, fall
It's always a good time to wax it all.

Yes, my twitter name is Sassysnatch.  Does that surprise you?

I had two women come in for a wax who recited a funny U-Tube video to help get them through the service.

Jesus became sweet yesterday at Mark & M.E.

We sell a professional grade Lidocaine Gel to help ease some of the discomfort associated with waxing. I did have one girl tell me that it takes two showers to get the weird odor of the gel off her. I think making it a little smelly is probably a good thing, since we need to keep the predators away during the first day.

You know someone is nervous when their belly button fills up with sweat.

In order to better service you and reduce adverse reactions to your skin following a Brazilian Wax, we have made some changes at Mark & ME. Instead of putting lotion on your skin before we tweeze any strays, we are using an organic blend of tea tree oil that will remove all sticky residue, reduce break-outs and irritation, and act as an antiseptic. The three step cleanup process is no longer necessary. Believe it or not, you can really teach this old, hairless dog some new tricks.

Normally, a six foot two, two hundred and fifty pound guy could completely overpower me. But when he is on my table getting a wax, my craft stick and I have the ultimate control.

Friday, August 22, 2014

I feel inclined to follow up on yesterday's blog. Blunts aren't recommended before a wax. They can make you paranoid and less resistant. If you'd like to celebrate with one after your Brazilian, however, be my guest.

I waxed a girl yesterday who is moving to Colorado.  She is nervous about getting a wax from someone else.  I told her that it'll be fine as long as they give her a blunt before her Brazilian.

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

I waxed a lot of people yesterday. No one bruised, bled, kicked me, peed on me, grabbed me or fell off the table. It was like a perfect day at the beach.

If you're a toe curler when you're in pain, you may want to keep your shoes on to prevent cramping during your wax.

The more flexible you are, the easier it is for me to access the Brazilian area. If I comment on your flexibility, it is a sincere compliment, because you are doing me a tremendous favor and making my job easier. You should never think that I am insinuating you are a stripper or a porn star because I admire how well you are able to stretch. And if you find my compliment an insult, I apologize, but I do have to wonder if a part of you has a guilty conscious.

Now that our son is officially gone, I won't have time to wallow in the sea of empty nest-dom. I'll be too busy burying myself in the nests of the men and women who graciously patron Mark & ME.

Prepare to get sticky from the sap. Thirty years ago I was a student at the University of Rochester, met Mark, and started working at the salon as a part-time receptionist. Today, I am still with Mark and still at the salon, but in a much different capacity. What is most unbelievable is that I am moving my youngest child into college this morning. It seems like an appropriate day for gratitude and reflection. It has been an exciting and emotional journey that ain't over yet baby!

I think doing Brazilians has made me funnier.

Thursday, August 14, 2014

I am still getting criticized for not leaving the room while you undress. Not only am I going to see your lady parts up close and personal, I am going to be touching them. So removing your panties while I prep the table should not be awkward. In my opinion, entering the room while you're naked from the waist down waiting for me seems like it would feel more strange. I'm completely unaffected by you being naked. I just want to make you bald. But if that part of the process makes you feel uncomfortable, then I am sorry. My goal has always been to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

Unless I can french braid your pubic hair, don't be embarrassed. I've seen worse.

I wrote The Happy Hoo-Ha and The Happy Hen House. What should the third be? The Happy...

I haven't touched a vagina in eleven days.

Heading back to my wonderfully hairy American Italians. Ciao!

When it's hot outside, men should trim down their excess body hair instead of wearing extra cologne to mask the smell.

In New York, chicks occasionally scream for Jesus when they're getting a Brazilian.  I can't even imagine how much more I would hear his name in Italy!

Thursday, August 7, 2014

I saw the sculpture of David today in Florence.  Not only is he a perfect figure of a man, he has no hair.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Today I am not going to blog about Brazilians, Brozilians, Bushes or Beaves.  I just want to put it out there that wine tastes better in Italy. Share this statement if you agree.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

I have officially started my third book in The Happy Hoo-Ha trilogy.  I made my daughter laugh which is a good start!

Monday, August 4, 2014

It's all about going back to your roots.  OK, maybe not your root hair color.

I believe in Happy.

The electricity is different in Europe. I've never been here before so I didn't realize how easy it'd be to blow a fuse with a personal electronic item.

Blogging from Europe is a first. Looking at real Italians and for some reason, they don't seem as hairy as our Italians in this US. Not sure if waxing is as popular here?
