Getting waxed is no relaxing trip to the spa, but owners of the newly opened Wax Club want it to be.
Customers entering the glitzy Tribeca location are immediately met with a glass of prosecco or a latte ( depending on what the time of day). “On Thursday’s we have sangria night,” says co-owner Marcy Kornblum.
Kornblum, a Realtor and marketing expert, jumped at the opportunity to open Wac Club when her friend Julia Davidov, a Manhattan salon owner, came up with the idea for unlimited monthly waxing.
For $89 per month, Wax Club members can schedule as many services as their hearts desire. But how much waxing does a person need? “Our customers do about $300 a month in services,” says Kornblum. “Arms, legs, Brazilian, eyebrows, lip, chin — it all adds up.”
Considering the average price for a Brazilian bikini can be upward of $70, and eyebrows are at least $20, for a dedicated waxer $89 is a steal.
And if you don’t want to sign up for a monthly membership, Wax Club offers a la carte services as well: full arms are $35 and a Brazilian for the ladies is $45.
Reasonably priced waxing services in NYC often mean you’re stripping off in the back of a dingy, no-frills nail salon.
But the partners, fans of girly amenities at chains like Dry Bar, were committed to making sure customers feel pampered during their appointment. They designed Wax Club with glamorous chandeliers and plush sofas and refuse to sell products, to avoid putting pressure on customers.
“We’re focused on service and a small-town feel in the big city,” says Kornblum.
