Today marks a HUGE milestone for WAX Hair Removal Bar and for me personally. After 14 years as the founder and owner of Canadas FIRST full body and only bleaching bar, I have decided to sell my location in Vancouver, Canada. Not only was Covid physically and emotionally exhausting for myself and all of us, it was also when I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at the same time as the shutdowns. I spent this last year not only fighting for my life but also prioritizing it, as well as resting and recharging mentally and physically. As they say, “You can’t pour from an empty cup”, and upon many days of contemplation and reflection, I truly feel that selling my business is necessary to take control of my health and wellbeing.
I was only 27 when I started WAX Hair Removal Bar. I wasn’t an esthetician, and I definitely didn’t have any experience running a salon. It was simply an idea that became a dream and a dream that became a reality. I’m grateful to the customers, employees (past and present), vendors, and friends who stood by me when I took the chance and dove in headfirst. When I met with the all-female team at Fuzz Wax Bar, I knew right away that this company would be the right choice to transition with. They understood my mission and desire to take care of my team and my clients. The transition will be effective 1/26/22
|So what now? I have chosen carefully to transition my WAX location in Vancouver over to the Fuzz Wax Bar team. The transition will be seamless for both you, our valued clients, and our amazing team. |
