Expert Waxing, Threading, and Electrolysis

At Haven, we give you a choice for your hair removal needs.  We offer a choice of 3 different types of wax, threading, and electrolysis.  

Stripless Hard Wax - Patented shrink wrap technology allows the wax to bind to the hair, not to the skin, resulting in a less painful, less irritating wax.  As close to painless as you can get!

Gourmet Wax  - Tried and true, our Gourmet Wax is infused with essential oils and Vitamin E to reduce irritation and redness.

Honey Wax  - Beauty in the basics, our Honey Wax is enriched with skin-calming Azulene.

Threading - great for those who can't tolerate face waxing, this ancient hair removal method plucks hair in a rapid fashion with twisted thread.

Electrolysis - still the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal, we use thermolysis to effectively eliminate hair on almost any part of the body.

We strongly recommend performing a patch test a day or two before your first wax experience with Haven to detect any allergic reactions.  While this doesn't guarantee your skin will not react, it may help identify an allergy. 

Men's waxing is available but prices differ. Please call to inquire.
