Every New Yorker, whether you’re male or female, is constantly on the hunt for the perfect wax. They are searching high and low for studios that use the most luxurious ingredients, hurt the least and offers the best overall experience. Look no further. Daphne: European Skincare and Sugaring Studio, on the border of Manhattan’s SoHo and Lower East Side neighborhoods, is perfect. Known throughout the city as a preeminent destination for skincare and hair removal, once you try their services, you won’t want to go anywhere else.
The studio is trained-in and uses the incomparable Biologique Recherche skincare products, second to none. They customize facials using the cult French line – including manual lifting, oxygenating and de-puffing. Daphne uses the products for the face and body – including offering some of the most results-oriented body treatments in the city (slimming, tightening and cleansing). They’re fantastic.
But, what Daphne is known for, is sugaring. Their expert aestheticians grab a glob of amber-colored, melted organic sugar and roll it into a giant ball. They prepare your skin and body hair through trimming and prepping. The sugar blob now makes its way into their hand, where it’s applied to your skin and, rip, your hair is gone. I’m not going to say it doesn’t hurt, it does. But, like waxing, the more frequently you do it, the easier it becomes. Clients can expect skin that is clear and clean, with little to no bumps after the hair is removed. Daphne is the perfect one-stop-shop for beauty and hair removal in New York.
