The anticipated arrival of the sizzling summer months can only mean one thing- it's swimsuit season in Miami and time to prep for extreme exposure. Miami boasts some great waxing spots, if our golden-hued (and hairless) bods are any indication. Sure, bikini waxes can be awkwardly intimate and sometimes cringe-worthy, but they can also be pleasant and painless, depending on where you go.

Whether you're looking for that perfect eyebrow arch or a sexy Brazilian, we've rounded up the top ten waxing salons in your area that will have you swimsuit ready in a New York minute. Say goodbye to those bumps and ingrown hairs and spread em', ladies. -Kathy Buccio
