A young women with an adorable accent said she had a "hedgehog in her panties." That kind of description should scare us, but her voice was too cute for us to be frightened. In case you were wondering, the Brazilian Wax went smoothly and the hedgehog was properly removed.
Another exciting day for M.E. Passion Takes Time, the 4th book in her romance series, is available on Kindle!

Last night, as I was watching Days of Our Lives, one of the characters used the expression 'outside the box.' Any v-j-jay related reference always makes me laugh. Then I got thinking...when I wax a woman's bikini area, I always include the happy trail and any strays crawling down the leg. So that is when I realized that I like to wax 'outside of the box.'

Yesterday I ended my day with back to back women who were nine months pregnant. The one woman is going in this morning to be induced. It was very exciting to be a part of her pre-birth preparation. Don't risk shaving that area when you are ready to pop. It's dangerous to navigate an area that you can't see with a sharp razor.  Come see me. Even though it can be a little trickier to wax pregnant women, I have a ton of experience and absolutely love it!

A woman came in for a Brazilian Bikini Wax last week and warned me she brought Furry Monster. She wasn't kidding!

Saturday, October 14, 2017

It's a beautiful day to go bushwhacking through the Brazilian Rain Forest. See ya on Mt. Hope!

Friday, October 13, 2017

Good morning, my Rochester friends. I did hot yoga at 6am and am ready to rip! See you at
Mark and M.E. today for a really great time!

Thursday, October 12, 2017

A girl asked a friend where she should go to get the best Brazilian Wax in Rochester. She told her to go to Mark and M.E. The girl thought she said Market Meat. She thought that was an odd name for a salon.  Would it be too naughty for me to say that we do make things more edible?

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

I appreciate the reviews! This was for 2nd Generation Passion that someone posted yesterday on Amazon. Another 5 stars. Woohoo!!!!!.0 out of 5 stars
There is no age limit to getting a Brazilian Wax. Couples in their 70's are enjoying Mark and M.E.'s special type of grooming as much as the younger generation. 

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Pregnant? Hairy? And you want the baby out??? Come to Mark and M.E. and get a third trimester Brazilian Bikini Wax. You'll feel cleaner when you deliver and the physical act of getting waxed can put you into labor!

Monday, October 9, 2017

M.E. of the Mark and M.E. Salon enjoys writing naughty romance novels. Here is a sneak peak of the cover of her fourth book coming to Amazon and Barnes & Noble sometime this month!
Mark and M.E. understands that summer is over and you may get lazy about your grooming rituals, but you need to remember how much it rains in Rochester this time of the year and there is nothing worse than wet hair. We believe that waxing is a year long commitment.

When I removed the first strip off a lady who hadn't been in to see me in months, she looked at the strip covered in long, brown hair and she said it looked like 2 gerbils and a hamster.

Saturday, October 7, 2017

A girl came in for a Brazilian Wax today and the first thing she did was apologize. She said that her hair was long enough to braid.

Friday, October 6, 2017

The definition of a Brazilian Bikini Wax at Mark and M.E. is a removal of all the pubic and rectal hair on a client. As a girl was undressing, she looked down at her legs and said she couldn't stand the ash when her skin is dry. I told her I didn't care about her ash, only her ass.

Thursday, October 5, 2017

How do you know it's time to get a Brazilian with M.E.? When you tell your boyfriend that your hair is itchy and he recommends you condition it.

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

It is common for me to get hugged by at least one client every day after I've given him or her a Brazilian Bikini Wax. Lately, I've been getting hugs by first-timers. It can't be the traumatizing service that some people make it out to be if I'm getting hugs of appreciation on a regular basis. Have you tried Mark and M.E. lately?

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Mark and M.E. likes to make you youthful from your top to your bottom. Don't forget to take advantage of our Pumpkin Peel Facial this month. 20% off this highly effective peel will make your skin younger and healthier.

Monday, October 2, 2017

As many of you know, M.E. is a writer. It shouldn't surprise you that she likes to write about her favorite body part - the Hoo-Ha. In the September edition of Rochester Woman Online, she wrote an article about one of Mark and M.E.'s more interesting services, the Pampered Peach Facial. Yes, it is a facial for your Hoo-Ha. Check it out!

I've spent a career in private rooms listening to the sordid details of my client's sex lives, which is one of the reasons I've written A Promise of Passion Series. A girl came into the salon looking for the 2nd book in the series entitled Passion Never Dies. When she realized I was the author, she told me she was mad at me. Like many readers, the first book made her cry. Even though the books are highly sexually charged, they are inundated with real life drama and angst. Thank you to everyone who has checked out the series!

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Yesterday a girl told me it was "delightfully terrifying" to see me. Interesting oxymoron, don't you think? #brazilianwax #marknme

Friday, September 29, 2017

Friday's are always the busiest day at Mark and M.E. and I'm excited to hang with lots of kitties today!

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Women often get an adrenaline rush when they spread their legs for me. I don't get alarmed when their bodies shake uncontrollably, however, since I know they will get a similar rush the next time they spread 'em for somebody else. Gotta love the power of the Brazilian Bikini Wax you get from Mark and M.E.!

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

It's funny the different reactions women have when I give them a Brazilian Bikini Wax. Yesterday, I had a woman complaining that the pain from the wax was causing her eye to twitch.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

So many people complain when Monday comes and it's time to get back to work. In the salon industry, our work week starts on Tuesday. When I woke up this morning, I was excited about the day ahead of me. I love getting back to work on Tuesday's. It's time for me to have some fun playing in the fields and making people happy!

Monday, September 25, 2017

One of my nursing students was in a lecture at the University of Rochester. The instructor was discussing how it is often necessary to shave a woman before a caesarean.  He then suggested it was an even better idea to get a Brazilian Wax at Mark and M.E. because we were the best in town!

Sunday, September 24, 2017

 Mark and M.E. would like to do a quick SHOUT OUT to everybody who continues to make our job so worthwhile. Last week, we were busy doing gel manicures, spa pedicures, highlights, cuts, colors, perms, microblading, eye lash extensions, facials and of course waxing! It was a little harried at times, pun intended, but it was a blast. Every day I feel blessed to have discovered the beauty industry. It's the best job in the world!

Saturday, September 23, 2017

One of my clients suggested I get an urban dictionary, because some of today's expressions confuse me. As I was leaving Mark and M.E. a woman pulled up next to me in my car, rolled down her window and said,"Hey girl, you're popping in that car!" I said thank you, even though I wasn't sure what she meant. My first thought was that I looked like popcorn since my car is yellow.

Friday, September 22, 2017

A woman hadn't gotten waxed by me since January. She had been trimming the entire time, which made her hair incredibly dense and coarse. As I dug in my heels and used all my strength to get the hair across the front of her lower belly off, I realized she had a tattoo. I couldn't see it through the hair. I said, "Holy Cow, I found your tattoo!" She thought it was funny. I thought it was frightening.

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Mark and M.E. Salon is located in a 3 story, 1902 farmhouse on Mount Hope Ave in Rochester. All of the hair, nail, makeup, microblading and lash services occur on the first floor. There are 2 wax rooms on the 2nd floor that I personally use and there are 2 wax rooms and a facial room on the 3rd floor that my staff uses. Our mission is to make waxing fun. Yes, fun. Yesterday, I heard so much laughter coming through the vents from the 3rd floor that I wish I would have recorded it for everyone to hear. It made my day!

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

It takes quite a bit of strength to remove hair sometimes. Mark and M.E. has some of the strongest women in town ready and willing to use their muscles on you. If you get waxed more regularly, however, we don't need to play the hulk on your hoo-ha or any other body part, for that matter.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Hey, guess what? M.E. is back from her little hiatus and is looking forward to making all her friends smooth as a baby's...

Sunday, September 17, 2017

If you've been outside today, it is absolutely beautiful out. Since summer is still happening in Rochester, New York,  I have to share my brilliant idea. I was thinking that if we don't hibernate our hoo-ha's quite yet, maybe summer will stick around a bit longer! See ya next week for your Brazilian Bikini Wax at Mark and M.E.

Saturday, September 16, 2017

I have had the most eclectic array of business cards over the years. From Mark and M.E. to Mary Elizabeth, The Happy Hoo-Ha, A Promise of Passion and the list goes on...I wanted a card made up that showcases the variety of social media sites that I participate in. Thanks to Elexus, our bright and beautiful new edition to the Mark and M.E. family for designing these for me.
Love when I get messages from satisfied customers. A woman that I've been waxing for years got waxed by Jody, our full time esthetician that started in January. We are very proud to have Jody as part of our Mark and M.E. team!
JODI WAS AMAZING!!! I'm obsessed with her .. she really did an amazing job my whole body is hairless and perfect and ugh she was awesome!!!!!

Friday, September 15, 2017

A client came in today who hadn't been waxed since February. She started shaving again. After months of ingrown hairs, rashes, and stubble, she realized she couldn't handle the pain that accompanied shaving her bikini area. She told me that after she would shave, everything felt like a cactus down there. I don't know why anyone would want a cactus between his or her legs.

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Gotta love when a client thanks you for making her smooth as a baby's bottom! Just another reason why everyone should get a Brazilian Bikini Wax at Mark and M.E.

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

When our daughter went to get waxed in Denver, she asked the technician to wax her happy trail. The woman said it was an additional $17 charge. I think it looks silly to give a woman a Brazilian and leave a strip of hair from the belly button to the top of the bikini area.  At Mark and M.E. we never charge extra for that small strip. They should be ashamed of themselves!

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

A random guy told me he liked my car. He obviously saw my license plate, because he asked me what I wax? I told him I wax Brazilians. He said "You really do wax it all." Yep, I sure do.

Monday, September 11, 2017

When I started waxing in 1993, I was afraid of doing eyebrows. I didn't want to make anyone look goofy or accidentally wax an entire brow off.  I knew I had to get over that fear and master that service. Once I felt comfortable waxing faces, the v-j-jays were a piece of cake. Waxing it all off in that area was exactly what my ladies wanted!

Sunday, September 10, 2017

Believe or not, removing hair isn't the only thing we do at Mark and M.E. Sometimes we like to put hair on!   Lash extensions are a definite must!

Saturday, September 9, 2017

Since Mark and M.E. is known for being the Home of the Brazilian Wax, it is only fitting that the table in our waiting area has naked, hairless cherubs.
If you like smutty, romance novels, you need to read 2nd Generation Passion. There is a window scene that will knock your socks (or panties) off!

Friday, September 8, 2017

Just because summer is officially over, it doesn't mean you should stop getting waxed. Certain hair should never be long enough to braid.

Thursday, September 7, 2017

I started waxing as soon as I graduated from Continental in 1993. I taught myself how to do Brazilian Bikini Waxing shortly after I graduated since no one was doing it, teaching it or talking about it. Since some of my clients wanted it all gone back then, I was determined to figure out the best way to remove all the hair in that area. When it became popular, I had already been doing it on myself and others for some time and was ready to make it a popular service at Mark and M.E. I've seen a lot of hoo-ha's in the past 24 years!

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

I wax a couple women who belong to a summer campsite. They have read parts my non-fiction trilogy aloud to their friends when they've been sitting around the campfire drinking. Everyone found my stories funny, which makes me happier then I can express. They've decided to call their spot
The Happy Hoo-Ha Hill. Thank you for including me on your summer fun!

Monday, September 4, 2017

A woman was flying home from a business trip the other morning. As the plane was descending, she noticed how large Costco was, which is right around the corner from the salon. When she continued to scan the area, she saw my yellow car. Suddenly it occurred to her that she was way past due for a Brazilian Bikini Wax. She called the salon from the baggage claim area begging for an appointment. Our staff told her it would be a short wait. She didn't care. She drove straight from the airport to Mark and M.E.

Friday, September 1, 2017

As I walked into the gym before 6am this morning, the man behind the counter told me he got a call from his girlfriend last night saying she stayed up late finishing 2nd Generation Passion. She was excited I was writing a fourth book in the series since the book has such a cliffhanger ending. No worries, I plan to finish Passion Takes Time in the next two weeks when I play hooky from work.

Thursday, August 31, 2017

A woman googled Brazilian Wax, Rochester NY and Mark and M.E. came up first. She decided to pick the salon that came up second even though we had better reviews because she was intimated by the "Home of the 10 Minute" slogan. After enduring several one hour long Brazilian sessions at the other place, she complained to a friend about how long and how painful it was to get waxed. The friend told her to try me. Don't let the 10 minutes scare you. I'm efficient and thorough but I don't rush. I've just been doing it a really long time and have figured out a really good system. Your parts are in good hands with M.E. 

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Drinking alcohol before a Brazilian Bikini Wax is not recommended, because alcohol thins your blood, which can increase your risk of bruising. It also dehydrates the skin, which can make the wax more painful and leave the skin more irritated. I now have another reason you shouldn't drink: a fairly drunk woman repeatedly slapped me on the arm during the service. If you want me to do a good job, please don't hit me.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

You don't want any part of your body looking like the 'fro on Don King's head. You've got one more week of summer to take care of any hairy situation you may have going on. Give us a call 585-473-7360.

Monday, August 28, 2017

While I was waxing 36 week pregnant woman, she stared at her hands with an odd expression on her face. I asked her if she was okay. She said she thought she might be having an anxiety attack because her hands were sweating so badly. She wasn't breathing heavy and her heart wasn't racing, but her hands were most definitely sweating. The wax took less than 10 minutes, her skin was in perfect condition, and she was ready to have this baby - with sweaty hands.

Sunday, August 27, 2017

Several clients forwarded this article to me so I felt compelled to share.  Although I'm a HUGE
Hoo-Ha fan, I find these nails pretty creepy. I guess if you enjoy getting fingered and want to practice safe sex, this may be the way to go.

Saturday, August 26, 2017

When a fan sends me this pic, it makes me so happy! A Promise of Passion is igniting the fires in a lot of women!!!!
Just a reminder that M.E. will be taking some time off to finish her latest romance novel from Sept 6-19. There are seven business days left to get a Brazilian with her before she gets completely engrossed in her next steamy novel.
