The Waxing Boutique is a locally owned waxing salon in North Seattle known for the friendliness of its staff and excellent customer service. The salon offers traditional waxing services for men and women by appointment. For the underarm area or a bikini wax, the salon uses a five percent lidocaine numbing gel about one hour before the waxing to ensure you have the most relaxing experience without the pain that can be accompanied by literally tearing your hair out. After the treatment, customers can even pick up an after waxing product, Follique, to help prevent or eliminate in-grown hairs. One of the more unique offerings is the boutiques pre-delivery wax for soon-to-be moms scheduled for c-sections.
