Having unwanted hair removed isn’t the most comfortable moment of anyone’s day, but when you’re on Jill Miller’s table, it gets close. Co-owner of the North End’s Bow & Arrow Collective, she’s got a decade-plus of waxing experience and a natural way of connecting with people that eases anxiety (even during bare-all Brazilians). Using a hard-and-soft wax combo, she forgoes cookie-cutter brows and bikini lines for individualized results and employs a super-speedy technique that is much appreciated.
