Mom and Daughter fight for Women's Right to WAX!
















This whole ban craziness has been a wild ride and I am glad that we have had victory and I am even more glad to go back to being a photographer and a mom but I must honor my mother who was so strong through all of this. I did this for her, I owed to her since I was the one who back in 2007 wrote the board asking about how we can certify aestheticians in our salon since my mother was so good a training. Their reply was waxing in genital area was illegal! Oh boy did I never expect an email of mine cause such an international wave and getting such media as SNL, Rush Limbaugh and Social Media. When we were hit with the news this past February that we could not over the Brazilian Wax and that we had to take down our sign because Brazilian Waxing was illegal in NJ, I FREAKED! and I looked to my mom and she calmly said, God knows best and all things work in favor of those who follow him. Her attitude and grace is so inspiring and it is what gives her victory in her day to day life, now owner of two Salons, short staff, mother of 3 very demanding teenagers, and one pre teen who is months away from being a teen as well, grandmother of 2 boys, wife, mother and my friend. I do not know how she does it but she does, with thick Brazilian accent and all. I love you mom and I am so proud of all you have accomplished and of your graceful attitude, thanks for raising me on your own and always wanting what is best for us. Happy Mother's Day!

I applaud you for your efforts to assist your mother, and your mother for all her hard work and her devotion to her faith! It took time, but you are back in business. Awesome job!

I have experienced a Brazillian Wax once in my life. I have to admit, I never felt so good as I did looking in the mirror that night. I was still recovering from the shock from the bill ... $300! Now I read that it should be less than one hundred!! Flabergasted .., again! Oh, I think the fact that my wax was from my chin to my toes, I'm six feet four inches tall and male might have had a little to do with the extra cost ... I think it was worth it! For the next two weeks, I looked great with my manicure, pedicure and smooth tan legs! I actually received many compliments in the ladies room when I went "out".

Thank you for all you do.

Great Post. I am happy that all has been resolved and you are back to waxing as usual. Can you please do me a favor a squash these ridiculous rumors of a woman suing the State Board Of NJ because of a brazilian gone wrong? I am so proud of both you and your mother. Thanks again for your fight it is a true encouragement.

With such inspirations and dedication, the outcome is also positive. I can almost see the success of the waxing salon and, hopefully, it will become bigger in terms of office branches to help and provide quality waxing service for women out there. You guys put the best in every woman you’ve served. Kudos to all the staff!
