A sleek space, staffers who can talk you through nerves or make pleasant conversation if you're an old pro, and a choice of two unused waxes — one for the teeny-tiny fine hairs, and another for the more coarse ones — greet you at laid-back WAX ATLANTA. The aestheticians here don't reuse the wax to save the salon money, and for the reasonable price of $35, you'll get your lower abdomen and upper thighs cleaned up, too. Now that wasn't so bad, was it? 280 Elizabeth St., Suite A-105. 404-525-8344. www.wax-atlanta.com.
