Salem 503.704.6317 By Appointment Only

In the past, I’ve been a complete failure at this blog thing. I always wonder what to write, how to phrase it and even if anyone would be interested in what I have to say. My husband will attest to the fact that I can’t tell a joke to save my life – doesn’t matter how funny it really is, I manage to screw it up.
But here I am, trying it out again, because a friend of mine suggested I give it another go. Who would want to read a blog about a waxing studio? I was emphatically told EVERYONE.
It’s always fun to tell people what I do for a living. My answer always gets a reaction, usually it’s “You do what??” and then the questions fly. I’ve found myself answering questions about waxing everywhere: grocery stores, kids’ sports events, the DMV, cocktail parties. People are either dying of curiosity or asking for my business card…or both!
People are fascinated with waxing, especially Brazilian waxing. And they’re amazed at how easily I use the word vagina in everyday conversation. Well, when you spend more time down there than a gynecologist, the word quickly loses taboo. To be honest, waxing vagina all day is just what we do at Cherry City Waxworks – it’s as normal to us as your barista handing you a latte. And we wax EVERYBODY including our own friends, mothers and sisters-in-law, husbands, even each other.
I haven’t always done waxing. I went to college in Alaska, worked in high-tech, commercial real estate, and was a hair stylist (and waxer) for many years before focusing just on waxing. It wasn’t until I moved to Salem that I put away my shears in favor of my wax pot. And I haven’t looked back.
We’re currently interviewing for a new receptionist and one of the questions we ask is “What would you do if you won the lottery?” My answer: keep waxing and growing the business. It’s hard to imagine I ever did anything else. I LOVE waxing. I love everything about it. I love that I can make people laugh while ripping hair from their most intimate parts. I love the shock on someone’s face when they find out what I do for a living. I love helping women feel beautiful and sexy and confident.
So there ya go – a new blog entry. The first in a steady string of ramblings from the waxing table.

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
