How did your business start?

We opened a convenience-based walk-in-only waxing salon after seeing a lack of options in Mesa County. We have developed great relationships within that community, and after years of perfecting our art of waxing met with convenience, we decided to expand to the Roaring Fork Valley.

What do you sell?

We are an all-walk-in all-the-time, full-body waxing salon. In addition to being expert waxers, we also sell a curated selection of products we love. This includes boutique clothing, accessories and body care products.

Why do you like what you do?

We love what we do, because we truly believe in the concept of doing one thing and doing it well. We feel that we have embodied this concept and provide a luxury level product in a way that anyone can afford.

What strategy do you use to hire good people?

We have a wonderful core group of employees and have very high standards. We keep only the people that will join us in our effort to deliver only the best possible product. It also doesn’t hurt that we have a lot of fun at work, so the environment breeds great attitudes.

What is your strategy for growth in the next year?

We are currently experiencing a great amount of growth within our Glenwood location, so we are looking to continue that growth and perfect our team.

What is the best thing about running a business here?

We love the mountain atmosphere and the friendly locals. We have truly met some amazing clients and love the stories that each one brings with them.
