I graduated from graphic design school originally and later received my esthetician’s license. In 2011 I began working for my now business partner Monique Faddis at a small waxing studio called Wax In The City, which she opened in 2009. In just 2 short years since, we’ve expanded from a small, 1 service room studio to a 4 service room boutique in the trendy Adams Ave district here in San Diego. We have a full staff of amazing ladies and provide professional waxing and lash services to women and men from all over San Diego!
While searching for a place to design my own personal website in graphic design school, I came across Wix and fell in love with the sleek design and professional websites that others were creating.
The best part about using Wix is the fact that I was able to be inspired and see what other people like me are creating out there!
Wix has helped by making our online presence strong and reliable. It gave us the tools to easily import apps like Yelp to our website and enabled a professional, trend forward look that we didn’t have before. Nothing makes me happier than hearing people tell us how much they loved our website or that they had heard of us and after checking out our website, decided to try us!
Monique came up with the idea to create the studio a while after she had her first baby, when she was ready to go back to work. After working at different places she knew she wanted to create her own business to offer superior waxing services with her own proprietary waxing technique.
The most gratifying thing about our work would have to be watching our business grow. We love the relationships we build with our clients and watching our team of amazing waxing specialists grow. We understand that we work in a competitive industry and we are constantly working on ways to improve and become not only an amazing waxing boutique but a brand you can trust and remember!
Our tip for people starting out their business:
Stay positive, all your hard work will pay off, and never stop learning!
