Fictionary: Limb-o

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.



Beauties, I’ve been Nairing my arms for the past few months as I’ve become irrationally obsessed with every limb being silky smooth. While it’s awesome to be able to do the job on my own and it does last about three weeks, I want an even longer-lasting hairless experience. And I want to get involved with leg waxing, specifically before my upcoming trip to Hawaii to celebrate Kristen‘s nuptials. But here’s my Q–what do you do in the interim when you’re waiting for your leg hair to grow out to be long enough to wax again, i.e., when you’re in Limb-o?
Help a gal out. It’s not often that I’m confronted with a brand new beauty situ, but this one stumps me. If life were Grease, I’d be the beauty Rizzo–I’ve done it all. And yet, in this scenario, I’m more Sandy than anyone else. What do I do? Wear pants? Is the hair much finer? SHARE.

Also, I plan to wax my limbs at Shobha‘s new fourth location in the heart of the Financial District between Rector and Morris Streets at 65 Broadway (formerly the American Express Building). Shobha Financial District is scheduled to open late summer of 2012. There, the hair removal salon will offer its signature treatments, including threading, sugaring and waxing, as well as an assortment of hand-picked retail products from its own line and other Shobha-approved brands. Also, check out the newly renovated Columbus Circle location. In the meantime, share with me your leg-waxing best practices and enjoy The Karate Kid’s Mr. Miyagi’s life lesson below. Wax on, wax off.
