Pernoux is almost perpetually booked, which made us all the more eager to try her services. After waiting three weeks for an appointment, we had become impatient—and our bikini line overgrown. Pernoux quickly made up for lost time. After deftly painting on long swaths of wax, she tore them away with a few lightning-fast tugs, creating a perfectly proportioned strip that was well worth the wait.
