Wax and the City
Business is booming in Dothan, it’s true. New boutiques, restaurants and more are popping up all over. Well I am here to tell y’all about one more. Waxing the City is new in town and ready to welcome everyone with open arms! Waxing the City is pretty much what it sounds like…a business that offers waxing services…but that definition doesn’t do it justice. I went by and met with owner Melinda Sykes, and a couple of Cerologists (which means “experts in waxing”) and I have to say…I loved everything about it.
Waxing the City opened November 2nd in our lovely little city of Dothan. It is part of a franchise, but ours is the first in Alabama! When the franchise was first starting, the co-founders travelled to Spain and worked with people to create perfect waxes (both hard and soft) for their business. Their custom waxes are signature to Waxing the City and you cannot find them anywhere else. There is their hard wax which is used for sensitive areas, and their soft wax that is used for all other places. All of the waxing employees are licensed estheticians, but also specially trained in the Waxing the City way to make sure that clients receive the best care there is. They wax head to toe on the ladies and almost head to toe on the men. For men they are trained in everything except full Brazilians….BUT come February the males will be able to get full Brazilians also. So it’s waxes for everyone! YAY!
Aside from waxing, they also offer lash and brow tinting, and a great array of pre and post care products. Super cool stuff like lip masks, lash food and yummy not-so-vanilla body products. The not-so-vanilla products, I must say…smell perfect.
You walk into Waxing the City and already feel transported to another place. It has an urban loft feel with exposed brick and cityscapes on the walls. It feels cozy and welcoming, but cool at the same time. Everyone is so sweet and are trained to be the best at what they do, as well as being very professional. You’ll feel safe and in very good hands. Once you arrive you’ll be greeted and asked to fill out an intake form. They want to make sure they know all necessary info to make sure you receive the best possible service and results. You’ll be escorted into one of their 8 rooms, each of which is equipped with all the necessary equipment to make you comfy and receive a perfectly-sanitized and properly executed service. They even have a little nook for your stuff…including a hanger for your purse, a charging station and little “love my muff” wipes…so cute and thoughtful!!
Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome. They are open on Sundays too, so WOOHOO!! You also get ½ off your first service!!!….ANY SERVICE! ½ OFF!! Y’all…what are you waiting for!? Go book your appointment now!
They are located @100 Apple Ave. Dothan, Al. 36303. West on Hwy 84…near the Publix shopping center, beside Orange Theory. (334) 350-3349
OH! And there is an app! So yeah…that seals it. Go now!
