I'm Kim, the owner of Kim's Wax Studio in Dunedin, FL. Other titles I rock include waxing specialist, esthetician, Capricorn, and dog mom to two furry pups (that last one is my fave.)
I've been waxing for over 12 years and have an unhealthy obsession with making others feel beautiful in their skin. I'm so happy you're here and I'd love to tell you a little more about what makes Kim's Wax Studio so special.
Throughout my 12 years of strictly waxing, I’ve gone from working for a prominent national corporation to opening my own wax studio here in Dunedin.
Kim’s Wax Studio was founded in 20?? I was ready to leave the corporate waxing world and venture out on my own. I take pride in offering high quality waxing services to my clients. I know how intimidating waxing can be. I want every single client to leave my studio with a positive experience. When you make an appointment at my studio, you make an appointment with me - every time.
Only good vibes are welcome in Kim’s Wax Studio! From good tunes to the relaxing scents of essential oils, my studio is here to make you feel comfortable. If you’re new here, you’ll fill out a new client intake form. Then I always make sure the doors are locked so we aren’t interrupted during your waxing appointment.
If this is your first time here, I’ll show you around before we dive in! Then I'll leave you in the waxing room to get ready and take off whatever you need to for your service.
Once you’re all ready, I’ll rejoin you in the waxing room, cleanse the skin we’ll be working on today, and then I’ll work my magic!
The wax goes on warm and soft. The heat from the wax allows the pores in your skin to open up, revealing even shorter individual hairs to the wax. Once hardened, I’ll take the wax off your skin. Since I use all premium hard wax products, the wax removal is easier than a soft wax removal would be and typically does not need as many touch ups.
No worries if you're pressed for time! Most waxing services are less than 15 minutes (although some require more time). Before I leave the room, I’ll put my “special sauce” on the skin we worked on to keep it healthy, protected and ready for the day. Then I’ll meet you in the front lobby to cash you out and schedule your next appointment. See you in 4 weeks!
When planning to get waxed, make sure that you haven't shaved in 2 weeks (minimum). The hair needs to be at least a ¼ of an inch long for the wax to grab onto the hair shaft.
If you are prone to dry skin, exfoliation and hydration is key to getting the most out of your waxing service! You want to exfoliate at least two times a week. Moisturizing is also very important, so make sure to moisturize your skin everyday after you shower.
Ingrown hairs sometimes come with the territory. There are many factors that can cause them, like not changing your clothes or rinsing off after you exercise or even not exfoliating or hydrating your skin. Wearing too tight of underwear, or lacey underwear can also cause ingrown hairs. I like to tell my clients you have to treat your vagina like you treat your face: cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate!
Skin breakouts can occur from taking part in activities like workingout, going swimming, sex, or laying out in the sun directly after waxing. Why? These activities allow bacteria in your freshly opened pores. Keep in mind that your skin is one big open sponge after getting waxed. If this happens to you, don’t worry...I have a trick to get rid of them. ;) Just give me a call!
