Don't resort to the old-fashioned way of getting rid of that unwanted hair. Come see us at Mark and M.E. before this holiday weekend begins!

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Another 1st at Mark and M.E. As I was trying to remove a very long and dense mound, I found myself doing smaller sections and throwing all of my weight into each pull. As I pulled one of the strips towards my body, I literally punched myself in the stomach. I've never been punched before; it didn't feel good.

I think it would be more fun to wax a design of the American Flag on men's backs and chests to celebrate our upcoming holiday. What do you think?

I walked into one of my wax rooms to find a Hispanic woman reading The Happy Hen House and laughing. She said she only read a little bit of the book but found it hysterical. She asked me if she could buy the book. I was excited to sell her a copy. She told me she loves to read but only reads books written in Spanish. The Happy Hen House was going to be the first book she read in English. I can't explain how amazing that made me feel!

Show off your sexy body this summer by getting waxed at the Mark and M.E. Salon!

Sunday, June 25, 2017

More helpful waxing hints: You must breathe. Holding your breath can make you dizzy. It also makes your body more tense, which can make each rip more uncomfortable. When I wax myself, I always exhale as I pull the hair off. It definitely makes the wax removal experience more pleasant!

Check out my updated personal web page at  It has all six of my books on it now!

So glad when I read that someone enjoyed 2nd Generation Passion as much as I did!  This was the latest review.
on June 22, 2017
As with the other books, M.E. has not disappointed this reader! The storyline was exciting, and quite in line with current life situations. I'm (im)patiently waiting for the next installment!
The helpful wax hints continue.... Working out right after a wax isn't recommended. The increased body heat and sweat can irritate the pores causing increased redness and bumps. If you workout before your wax, however, we'd appreciate a quick shower before you come in.

Summer is here!  Are you bikini ready? If not, give Mark and M.E. a call at 585-473-7360

2nd Generation Passion just got another 5 star review. It's the 3rd book in A Promise of Passion series. Have you read them yet? They're pretty provocative, Watch out 50 Shades,  M.E. is in the house!

"Love M.E. Nesser's books!!! I don't want to put them down!!!"

Mark and M.E. has been a hair salon since 1956. Funny how styles have changed. Even the zebras are amused!

When Mark and M.E. went on safari, I saw this postcard which totally cracked me up. There we are. Mark is curling my hair while I am painting my nails. The benefits of owning a salon and working together in an industry that we love. 
Wasn't sure if I was going to run the Puss n Boots special again tomorrow, but it makes me giggle so why the heck not! 20% off pedicure and Brazilian. Tomorrow. Hump Day. June 21st.  First day of summer!!

LOVING the new ad for Mark and M.E. in the Rochester Woman Online July issue!

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Mark and M.E. is one of the most easy-going salons you will ever go to and we pride ourselves in trying to accommodate all of your requests. For example, if you would like an interesting shape left behind when you get a wax, we will be happy to try our best to give you what your 'heart' desires.

More hints.... I know that getting a Brazilian Bikini Wax makes you feel really sexy, but you need to wait before you enjoy any sexy time. Waiting until the next day will give you a happy hoo-ha instead of a hurting one.

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

The hints keep coming....Make sure you give us at least 2 weeks since your last shave or trim. Otherwise, your hair won't be long enough to wax. If you think it's too long, no worries, we will trim it for you at no extra cost!

Monday, June 12, 2017

More helpful hints: I know that getting a Brazilian Wax may make you anxious, but you need to stop fighting us. It's very difficult to give you a thorough and efficient wax when you treat the service like a knock-down wrestling match. The more you fight, the longer it will take and the more irritation you may experience.

Sunday, June 11, 2017

Ironically, Hump Day (a.k.a. Wednesday) tends to be the slowest day at Mark & M.E. Since we are happier when we are busy, we are running a very interesting special this week. We are celebrating Puss N Boots. Save 20% on a Brazilian and Spa Pedicure. Feel free to message us on Facebook or email for an appointment at    Making beauty affordable...
Some more helpful wax hints: You need to let your hair grow for at least 2 weeks before getting a wax. Otherwise, it won't be long enough. Also, please don't trim your hair before your appointment. Nine times out of ten, you'll trim it too short and we won't be able to get all of your hair out. We want you to have a happy kitty, not a sad one.

Baby powder isn't the only thing that can clog your pores. Try to avoid putting lotion on your bikini area as well, unless, of course,  you're tanning naked. Protecting your delicate area with sunscreen is a must!

Friday, June 9, 2017

Helpful wax hints continue: Please do not put baby powder on the Brazilian area. It clogs the pores and can cause more ingrown hairs and irritation.

Thursday, June 8, 2017

Helpful waxing hints continue...Take a shower as close to your appointment as possible and lightly exfoliate the area to remove dead skin cells and loosen ingrown hairs. This will make your waxing experience much easier and everyone will be happier!

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Another helpful wax hint: Don't get high before your wax service. It dehydrates your skin, reduces your resistance and often causes paranoia. Wait until after the service to celebrate!
Helpful wax hint morning: Since your body is composed of roughly 60% water, then it's important to keep your skin hydrated. If you want to make your wax less painful and reduce your risk of getting irritated, drink up my friends!

Everywhere I go, I'm reminded of what I do for a living. I've spent a career tracking through the bush.
I know you may get sick of me posting reviews, but I am sincerely grateful for every one that has been written. Writing a book takes a lot of time and a lot of heart and this 5 star review was just posted and made me happy. 5.0 out of 5 stars
on June 2, 2017
Amazingly written, I fell in love with the characrers right away. I am so happy I got to meet you and 
have the opportunity to get you to autograph each copy. I am starting Passion Never Dies tonight.
 I truly hope your passion for writting continues.

The way some people walk after they get a Brazilian Bikini Wax.

When you spend a career talking to women about sex, it's pretty easy to write about it. Love this review on Amazon about my first romance novel A Promise of Passion.  Thank you!

"Loved the story of Katie and Bryce. Not to spoil the ending for others, I was expecting a different ending. Messer did a great job in taking the story from today to the past and back to today. The sex scenes were tastefully done and still very hot. After finishing A Promise of Passion, I could not wait to read Passion Never Dies."
That indescribable feeling when you've finished a super busy day and you know you've made a lot of women feel more beautiful and confident!

The look on the young man's face who came in for a Brazilian when I asked him to take his boxers off.
In my professional life, I thrive on making kitties hairless. In my personal life, however, I adore the hairy creatures. Please meet Leya and Loma. They are 19 month old cousins who will be released in the wild when they are 3-5 years old. They live in Zimbabwe and are currently learning how to hunt on their own. When we met them, they had recently killed a baboon. They didn't eat it though. Apparently, baboons don't taste very good.
