The 'Story Behind The Story:'
The 2002 Sunday Style Article ...
It has been a few years since this article appeared
and that's the point -- Laura J. Crawford has been at the forefront
of hair removal treatments in the Louisville area for a long time.
Brazilian waxes and electrolysis were seen as a
new wave in personal grooming when The Courier-Journal featured
Laura in this Sunday Style section article in November 2002. But

Why not take advantage of one of the most experienced
hair removal specialists in the Louisville metro area in an upscale
studio inside Brooks & Co. Salon and Spa? The prices are affordable

Key excerpts from the article:
* "Some people want a runway strip, mohawk,
round moon, heart,'' said Crawford. "I did one that looked
like a Charlie Chaplin mustache."
* Jennifer Endris, an orthopedic nurse at Jewish
Hospital, has been enduring the Brazilian wax for three years.
"Sometimes I wish I had a bite stick, but Laura does a lot
to make me comfortable,'' said Endris, 36. "She lets me holler
and call her whatever names I want because she knows it hurts."
Still, the pain is worth it for some. "It
makes you feel feminine, smoother, and I think men like hairless
women,'' Endris said.
* Christina Valhouli, a writer in New York City,
went on the Internet to detail the experience of getting a Brazilian
wax at the J. Sisters International Salon.
"Getting waxed is one of those hidden, female
pleasures like wearing trashy lingerie under a business suit,''
she wrote. "It's your little secret that makes you walk around
with a smile, and puts an extra swagger in your step."
