    New Year = New You! 

    Projected Trends For 2011:


    Now that the New Year has arrived, we want to make sure that you all are on trend for what’s hot and what’s not for 2011. And, seeing that we’re pretty well tapped into the fashion, health and beauty scenes, we wanted to take this opportunity to make some of our own predictions for what's to come in 2011!



    2011 Trends For The Ladies:

    • Bold eye make-up is huge for 2011. Be creative and dramatic and opt for all-out fluorescent eyes in sorbet shades; experiment with a swipe of vivid green liner or a fluorescent orange shadow at the outer corners of your eyes.
    • Each year it seems that we see the bikini get smaller and smaller and 2011 will not be any different. This year, we will continue to see “scrunch” bottoms, whereas bikini tops will stay mildly conservative. Make sure you are prepped for those tiny bottoms with a bikini wax!
    • Delete the tawny, earth-toned blush, eye and lip colors and get a sun-kissed Seventies glow instead for 2011.
    • Get rid of those defiantly bold and bushy eyebrows of 2010 and swap them for a pair of strong but groomed eyebrows that are all the rage for 2011.

     
    2011 Trends For The Fellas:

    • The 2011 man is attentive to his looks more than ever, becoming a considerable market share for plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgery clinics. Men are getting Botox shots, getting waxed and getting more invasive cosmetic treatments such as rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and hair transplants.
    • Men are also booking appointments at salons or spas for eyebrow waxes. With guys like David Beckham boasting nicely shaped brows, it seems men aren't settling for less. Guys, this really isn't about becoming a pretty-boy -- it's about not walking around with a unibrow.
    • Manscaping: As goes with the 2011 trend of ‘less,’ men all over the U.S. are aiming for less body hair. We all know that back, ear and nose hair have always been out, but 2011 will be the year to more widely eliminate chest hair and minimize, um, “down there.”

    Mile High Sports Magazine's Snow Angels Spread

    We are happy to announce that we were part of Mile High Sports magazine’s Annual Snow Angels issue that came out in the December 4th edition. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Snow Angels issue, let us clarify:

    • Snow Angels (noun): Local beauties, walking freely here on earth, captured with the quick flip of a camera lens.

    Mile High Sports magazine named the beautiful women of the RockStarz their 2010 Snow Angels.  The 10-page photo spread allowed our Waxing the City CEROLOGIST™ technicians to present their ‘bodies’ of work: the RockStarz! With a theme of “Urban Graffiti,” WTC’s waxing artists were responsible for creating the RockStarz smooth body canvas’s. The body paint was a representation of the vibrant urban graffiti that decorates many parts of Denver.  The entire spread beautifully illustrates Waxing the City’s overall approach to waxing: as one part science and one part art.

     

     

    Waxing the City is proud and honored to have been apart of this beautiful project! Thanks to everyone who made it possible!
