Salem 503.704.6317 By Appointment Only

It’s February and Valentine’s Day always brings in a ton of new clients – most for the famous Brazilian Wax. Most of our new clients are also new to body waxing.  They’re nervous, curious, and even a little scared.

They’ve heard stories from friends, read about it on the internet, and they’re just not sure about this whole waxing thing.

They have a lot of questions.  The most common question is, “Is this going to hurt?”

The most honest answer is…yes and no.  It’s not as comfortable as getting a facial or massage, but it’s also not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.  There are a lot of “funny” videos on YouTube showcasing people getting waxed on dares or because they lost bets.  There are also a lot of videos of friends waxing each other.  TONS of novices waxing out there!

Now there is a huge difference between having your friend wax you in the bathroom on a Saturday night and getting a professional wax service in a salon. Not that your friend isn’t great and all – but when was the last time the words “hey, I’ve got a great idea” turned out to be that great of an idea?!

I always tell new clients that they’re not obligated.  I’m not going to strap them to the bed and force them through the process. I’ll take it as far as their comfortable and, if it gets to be to be too much, I’ll make sure their even on both sides and be done. No harm, no foul.  And in all the years I’ve been waxing, I’ve never had someone ask me to stop or tell me they’ve had enough.  On the contrary – I’ve had many clients who came in for a basic bikini wax and, realizing how easy it was, asked if I had the time to do a full Brazilian wax.

Clients that come in to Cherry City Waxworks as total waxing newbies or veterans of the Brazilian  always comment that it hurts SO much less than they expected. I’m always so happy to hear that.  I’ve had my share of bad Brazilian waxes (more on that in another post) and I promised myself to be the expert and make every client as comfortable as possible.

Beauty does NOT have to be torture!

Thank you for reading.
Make it a great day!

We are so excited to see you!

We know everyone is eager to schedule an appointment, and we wholeheartedly thank you for being so understanding! We genuinely appreciate all of you for your love and support and patience as we move into this new phase.

We will reopen Monday June 1st, when we have our new COVID-19 safety protocols in place and our staff completes training. Your safety and the safety of our team are our number one priority.  

Starting on Monday, May 25th, we will contact clients who had appointments cancelled due to the shutdown. Once we have reached out to them, we will reopen our schedule to all clients and enable online booking.

Because of our new safety protocols, we will be able to see fewer clients per day. It is going to take us a little longer to catch up and get everyone back on a regular schedule. Please be nice and patient with us, we will see as many clients as possible.

We want to do this right and ensure we have all proper protocols in place. Please note the following changes will be strictly enforced. We will follow up for more information as we get closer to reopening.    
- NO extra guests. Only clients with appointments allowed.
- Our waiting area will be closed. You must wait in your car and let us know when you arrived. More detailed instructions to follow.
- YOU MUST WEAR A MASK - If you do not have a mask, we will have masks available for a nominal fee.
 - You must be symptom-free of any illness at least 72 hours before your appointment.
- For clients who require assistance, additional guests must be pre-approved before your appointment. We will not grant approval in person.    

We know this is quite a burden on everyone. But if this is the price we pay to make sure we can get back to work and take care of you, we have no problems with it.   We cannot WAIT to see you again!  

See you soon,
Your Waxing Goddesses at  Cherry City Waxworks
