Beauty is pain?
It doesn't have to be…
Molly's Wax Shop is a locally-owned waxing boutique located in the business district of historic Oakwood of Raleigh, specializing in anxiety-free, stressless waxing. From brows to Brazilians, first-timers to seasoned waxing pros, my desire is to create a warm, friendly, and professional environment where any fear of pain or awkwardness is diminished as soon as you walk through the door.
At Molly's Wax Shop, only the highest quality hard and soft waxes are used, as well as healing and soothing skincare leaving you and your skin feeling refreshed and renewed.

In the hot hot months of summer, our body sweats - yes, duh, but did you also know that with this sweat, you can lose essential oils that are vital in keeping your skin supple and hydrated? Yes! And that’s where shea butter comes in. Not a petrolatum product which can clog your pores but [...]
So I’ve been hesitant to post any thoughts about this particular issue as I’d like to try and stay positive about women, femininity AND feminism, and the mere mention of the word feminism throws people into fits of epilepsy.

Hello and happy June! I hope everyone has been enjoying the summer and surviving the near one-thousand degree days we’ve been having. Ok, it’s not been that bad, actually, and I’m sure we’ll be complaining soon enough about how cold it is, but for the moment, my whining seems to help me feel better! At [...]
To loofah or not to loofah? Well… “Bacterium is attracted to moisture and loves to grow in the nook and crannies of a loofah,” say several doctors and other smart people. So there’s that. Personally I think I’ll stick with my sugar scrub in my hands to do the exfoliating for me… For more gross [...]
