About Us

Melanie Kessler has been a licensed Esthetician since 1998, and is thrilled to provide a one stop shop for her clients in need of a quick fix, clean up or complete overhaul! As an Esthetician and client she was inspired to open a salon devoted to waxing because while there are salons that cater to other beauty needs such as hair, nails, tanning, facials, etc., there was nowhere comfortable to go solely for waxing. Waxing, like any other service can be good or bad depending on the provider. She has 20 years aesthetic experience with waxing and lashes as her specialty. Melanie welcomes both women and men into her studio and loves that Smooth Operations the “It Spot” for hair removal and lashes in Marin.






Charisma Quality Comfort


My business philosophy is, “provide superior service in an unfilled niche and clients will come”. Waxing is typically an add-on service at nail salons and I believe men and women want a private and professional waxing location; therefore, I was inspired to create a studio specifically for waxing in Marin County, California. Proudly, I am able to offer a high-end retreat with the best in services, equipment, and technique.

Eyebrows, Brazilian wax and Lash Extensions are my specialty.  I love making women feel and look beautiful and because I am a perfectionist, you will not leave my studio with a hair out of place!  Thank you for visiting my website and don’t forget to check back for updates as I offer more products and services.
