Having spent the better part of the last ten years immersed in a thick sea of warm wax and hairy genitals, Tamsin Ragusa, owner of an award winning Brazilian wax salon in Melbourne Australia, decided it was high time she shared her waxing stories with the world. Written by Darren Holley, a close friend, staunch advocate and unabashed admirer of her unsung vocation, Darren felt proud to help spread the word of Tamsin’s “noble work”.
Tamsin lives in Melbourne’s west with her husband Charlie, daughter Sienna and dog Milo. A devoted mother and wife, Tamsin still somehow manages to find the time needed to make sure her precious South Yarra salon is kept running to her exacting standards.
A hopeless bachelor with a quirky sense of humour, Darren lives in the trendy Melbourne suburb of Docklands. An avid reader but first time writer, Darren attributes much of finishing his first book to Tamsin’s unwavering adherence to the facts and constant input. Tamsin was very particular in maintaining her book’s authenticity and her innate ability to see beneath her client’s skins made Darren’s job all that much easier.
Tamsin and Darren are still great friends.
