The Philadelphia Inquirer has a profile of the city's "Russian Queen of the Brazilian wax," Emma Potievski Sherby. The piece is worth reading if only for its use of the phrase, "deforested netherlands." Sherby is a former nurse who decided to become an esthetician after she immigrated to Philly in 1974. "To do Brazilian bikini, it's an art. Not everybody can do. You have to have a strong personality. It makes people comfortable when you have to undress and you have to lay down," Sherby says.
