Probably over a year ago, I returned to my car to find a business card tucked in my windshield wiper reading, “FREE WAX – ask for Kristen.”
The promo was for the new European Wax Center that opened on Central Avenue in Yonkers. Silly girl that I am, I never looked into them or their services. Over the past year though I’ve heard whispers about how great they are. So I finally went yesterday for my free underarm wax. They welcomed me as a walk-in, the facility was clean and modern with great decor, and this goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, the waxer was a sweetheart!
All in all: VERY COOL PROCESS. First off, you need to know the wax is BLUE and thick, and they don’t use strips to pull the wax off. Thanks to the thick consistency, the wax dries and can be pulled or rolled off! Secondly, they don’t double-dip. In most places they charge you extra for not double-dipping – at the Wax Centers… it is the main protocol. I was totally awestruck. Check it out:
This ain’t no rip and run ladies, here is their 4-step process:
“First, we use a lavender cleanser to remove any lotions, perspirations, and makeup.
Second, we protect your skin with oil to create a barrier between your skin and the wax so it is only adhering to the hair.
Third, we use our unique low temperature hard wax made exclusively for European Wax Center that is 100% beeswax with no alcohol to dry out the skin.
Lastly, we use a calming product to soothe the area reducing irritation and redness. Learn more.”
So quick and easy, I love it. I can’t wait to try other areas!
