As the days get longer and summer approaches, it’s time to break out all of those cute skirts and shorts. However, with bare legs comes endless grooming. If you’re sick and tired of shaving every other day, give waxing a try. Waxing is a method of hair removal that lasts longer and leaves legs feeling smoother than shaving. Since waxing helps hair grow in finer, the more often you wax, the less often you need to. In addition to legs, you can also wax your under arms, bikini line, eyebrows and anywhere else you’d like to keep hair-free. Here are Denver’s top waxing salons.
