It may be true that there's no good way to get your pubic hair ripped out by the roots. But there are better ways and there are worse ways, and the best way is to visit Burbank's little-known gem of a salon, Krimson, and get your lady- or man-parts sugared by Misty Gilman. A gentler form of waxing, sugaring uses all natural ingredients and leaves even the most sensitive skin smooth and soft. Krimson is one of the few salons in Los Angeles that offers sugaring, and it's well worth the haul up the 101 to treat your downtown area to a kinder, more humane depilation. —Jessica Ogilvie
