St. Petersburg, Florida - It's the second most popular style to sweep the Rays craze.
A bikini wax. Mohawk-style.
Michelle Foster of Skin Deep Spatique in St. Petersburg says she was inspired by her son's Mohawk, "I stopped and thought about it a minute, and thought, well now everyone can have one!"
But, it's not exactly pain-friendly. Team pride comes with a little sacrifice.
Women wince. They cry. They even scream.
It's a bit of a shock to the system as hot wax is spread onto the skin with a spatula, while an aesthetician stands by with a white piece of cloth, ready to rip off the wax.
When all is said and done, women are left with a female Rayhawk.
For $30, women are walking in to Skin Deep Spatique and requesting this popular style. They call it, "the special".
Thankfully, Michelle performs the procedure in a back room where women can yell or even yelp. She tells them with a patient, all-knowing smile, "Take a deep breath. Have you ever seen 'The 40 Year Old Virgin?'" The movie features some funny but disturbing hair waxing moments.
Michelle says the response has been crazy. She chuckled and told us, "It's fun. Now us ladies have a way of participating."
It seems to be making a lot of men happy, Michelle says, as women come home with what she calls a big "surprise."
"If you're not really into sports, but maybe your husband or boyfriend is -- to go home with a Mohawk, and that's what some of the girls have done," Michelle told us.
Michelle is often asked to dye the Rayhawk, which she politely declines. Her area of expertise is skincare, she says, not hair-coloring. But, any day of the week, she's willing to give you the cut, or rather wax, you'll never forget.
It's one, she says, that just may help the Rays, in some small way, to go all the way to the World Series.
