What background do you have in the waxing and beauty business? I graduated from the Rivertown School of Beauty in Columbus with a license in esthetics. Since graduating, I have continued my education through additional master classes in waxing, skin care, and leadership. Our other esthetician, Stephanie, received her esthetics license from Columbus Technical College and is also licensed as a medical skin care specialist. Stephanie strives to continue her education as well, most recently attending a beauty conference in Florida. Between us, we have a combined 16 years of experience in waxing the body and face. Though we are both qualified to perform other skin care services, we have decided to focus on, and specialize in, waxing.

What are the benefits of waxing? Waxing offers several benefits for both your skin and your hair. Clients who stick to a regular wax schedule will experience smoother skin, thinner hair, and the confidence that comes with feeling clean and smooth.

What would you tell someone who wants to get waxed, but is afraid it will hurt?
Waxing is an uncomfortable experience, however the benefits greatly outweigh any discomfort. As long as you maintain a regular waxing schedule and do not shave the area in between waxes, the service will become less and less uncomfortable over time. Furthermore, the discomfort is short lived. If you want to get the service done, we recommend just going for it! We have been open for nearly 3 years and have yet to have someone feel the need to stop their service before it was completed.

How is MKP different from other waxing salons in our area? What sets MKP apart from our competitors is that we are the only salon in the area that focuses entirely on waxing. This focus allows us to offer a broader range of waxing services at a very competitive rate.

What waxing options do you offer and how much do you charge for each one? If there is hair growing on an area of your body, we will wax it! Some of our most popular services include the women’s Brazilian wax, $49.00, eyebrow waxing, $13.00, under arm waxing, $10.00-$15.00, facial waxing, $35.00, men’s back waxing, $52.00, and the men’s Bro-zilian wax, $64.00. Prices are set based on the amount of time, product, and skill needed to complete the service. For a full list of services, please visit our website,!

What do you hope people will feel when they’re leaving your salon? We hope people leave our salon feeling beautiful, clean, and confident. We also strive to make sure our clients leave feeling educated about their waxing service and their skin care. Our service doesn’t stop when a client walks out the door. We offer a list of skin care tips to all of our clients and are always happy to answer any specific skin care questions over the phone. We want our clients to receive the best result possible, and this is achieved through a combination of a great service at the salon and continued home care until they return.
