FIRST LADY OF BIKINI WAXING: Jonice Padilha (J Sisters Salon)

LITTLE-KNOWN FACT: Thought the Brazilian bikini wax hailed from south of the equator? Think again. The teensy-weensy wax job originated not on the sunny beaches of Brazil, but in Padilha's nail salon on West 57th Street in Manhattan. "Brazil, where we're from [Padilha and her six sisters co-own the salon], is famous for its small bathing suits. So we thought, Why not create a bikini wax for women everywhere who want to wear those tiny bikini bottoms?"

NEXT UP FOR YOUR NETHER REGION: "We now offer a 'bikini facial' that prevents ingrowns and calms post-waxing irritation."

TO LOOK LIKE A J SISTERS CLIENT:
*Keep it clean. After you visit a professional bikini waxer, Padilha recommends cleansing with a washcloth or gentle body scrub daily. She also suggests slathering on sunscreen: "I am convinced that, even if you are not walking around naked, the heat of the sun darkens your bikini area."

HAS WORKED WITH: Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington.
