We’d hate to toot our own horn, but…. BEEP BEEP!
OC Waxing was voted “Best Bikini Wax” in Orange County for 2012. Now, come get your wax on!

Over the past several decades, the hair removal industry has exploded into a world of waxes, threads, lazers, creams, etc. The exact explanation for this trend is undetermined, but there is no denying that removing body hair has become the norm- for both girls AND guys.
Why do men want to get waxed? For the same reason women do: to maintain hygiene, feel clean, and rid your skin from itchy razor burn and in-grown hairs. Another bonus to the Brazilian? Returning the favor to your spouse… if they wax, so should you!
This may sound a bit wild, but it’s out there and it’s gaining popularity amongst men of all ages. Does anyone remember when the first female Brazilian wax was introduced in the 90′s? People thought it was crazy to go bald ‘down there’, and now Brazilian style hair removal is the most popular bikini wax of all.
One might wonder what the typical clientele is for male bikini waxes, and we can honestly say we see everyone. Business professionals, retirees, body builders, swimmers, husbands, fathers…all walks of life. Some men even make it a date and come in with their significant other!
Male clients can expect their experience to be very similar to a female Brazilian wax…all the hair gone, from front to back, performed by a professional, licensed esthetician. Men have already been waxing their backs, chests, ears and brows….why not throw in the ol’ bikini line!?
Whatever your reason may be for “manscaping”, we encourage you to try out the new service. It’s professional, discreet, and you can rest easy knowing you are visiting the best waxing salon in OC. Wax on, gentlemen!
In order to keep us on top of our wax game, we like to continuously educate and collaborate with one another. Encouraging feedback and input from our clients helps us brain-storm new ways to take our services to the next level. As part of this challenge to ourselves, OC Waxing has developed our “Lotus Liaison” program.
What is this you ask? Simple. A “Lotus Liaison” is essentially a ‘secret shopper’ that comes in for services then evaluates us on how we did!
Last week, we had an anonymous client come in for a wax with Mrs. Cristina Gaffoglio Bueras. NOT ONLY DID SHE GIVE CRISTINA AN A+, she made us all feel really proud of what we do and how far our salon(s) have come.
After her service, we asked our client “What did you enjoy most about your visit?”
THIS IS HER ACTUAL, UNEDITED RESPONSE:
“Having lived in NYC for 18 years and being waxed at ‘celebrity’ salons etc., I appreciate that OC Wax is such a personal experience. It’s not a factory of estheticians waxing hordes of clients every 15 minutes, but a place where I can come and get an impeccable wax, have a friendly chat, and leave in a timely fashion. OC Wax is clean, quiet, and a really pleasant place that makes what could be a ‘dreaded’ beauty appointment (thought not for me!), something to look forward to.”
Feedback like this is what keeps our business alive and growing, and we are SO thankful to have clients willing to help us achieve our goals. With that being said, A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO CRISTINA! YOU ALWAYS GIVE THE BEST WAXES AND WE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE YOU.

We know it’s extremely intimidating to search for a trusted place to get a Brazilian wax! But if you are educated, have the right questions, answers and expectations BEFORE you schedule an appointment, you can’t go wrong. Please read on to learn about 2 words that we are in love with: HARD WAX.
Quite simply, HARD WAX IS THE ONLY WAX YOUR WAXING PROFESSIONAL SHOULD USE FOR ANY TYPE OF BIKINI SERVICE!!
Let’s be honest, bikini hair is the thickest, coarsest hair on your body! Ironically, your skin “down there” is the opposite: very sensitive and very delicate. There are a lot of nooks, crannies, and important areas to look after- which is exactly why your Waxologist should only be using the finest hypoallergenic HARD wax.
Not to worry! Most consumers are not aware that there are different types of waxes. With all the different salons, brands, and types out there on the market, it is safe to say there are hundreds. But after doing years of research and experiments, we are here to give you the REAL FACTS ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HARD AND STRIP WAX!
Hard wax FACTS:
Strip Wax FACTS:
Along with this information, one must also understand getting any type of bikini wax is a big deal! Your skin is your best friend so remember to treat it with the utmost respect and use only the safest products with the most skilled Waxologists. Smooth, healthy skin makes a happy client, and that is the entire reason for our existence.
Bald for Boobs 2012…where do we even begin!? I guess if we had to sum it up in a few words, it would go something like this: PINK. Heart-warming. Inspiring.
Through out the day, as we shopped, waxed, and snapped photos, we were able to mingle with some of our participants and get the scoop behind why they were going “bald” for boobs. Personal stories of breast cancer, and ones that have affected many families close to our clients, were all shared and because of this, we were more motivated than ever to help this cause.We had so many people come out to support our charity event, all of our wonderful guests truly made the difference.
With the help and support of our community, we were able to raise over $2,600! We waxed a total of 57 participants and through raffle ticket sales, Facebook Fan Page likes, donations, bracelet sales,and shopping, we were able to make a generous donation to Hoag Breast Care Center in Newport Beach.
In addition to all of our support from the clients, we couldn’t have pulled the event off without our amazing sponsors. A very HUGE thank you again to Twenty Four at Heart, Sweetly Inked, Willow and Ash, We Love Superfoods, Freshends, South Coast Glow, Blankstyle, Graphics Plus, Jakubek Photography, Origami Owl, Staples Ortho.
In the words of Joseph Wirthlin, “The most treasured and sacred moments of our lives are those filled with the spirit of love. The greater the measure of our love, the greater is our joy. In the end, the development of such love is the true measure of success in life.”
Not only do we feel successful, but we also feel a tremendous amount of love and joy! Our sincerest gratitude to all of our supporters- thank you for an amazing day of charity See you next year!

All of our sponsors are local residents in this lovely Orange County community, and they have some pretty incredible services and products to offer. From jewelry and clothing, to orthodontic care and website creation, our sponsors have helped us out tremendously and we truly can not thank them enough!!

It has only been a few days since we announced our 2nd annual BALD FOR BOOBS charity event, and the responses have been overwhelming. It is an indescribable feeling when you reach out to people in the community for support, and not only do they say yes, they go above and beyond to help. As we kick off this awesome event, we would like to give special attention to a couple of VERY important sponsors- who are also dear clients and friends of ours.
First up is the amazing Suzanne Haggerty of Twenty Four at Heart, LLC. With her witty and creative blogging, to her breath-taking photographs, Suzanne is an artist, an entrepreneur and an inspiration. We like to stalk her facebook a little (ok a lot) because her work is truly unlike anything out there. When she was asked to be one of our sponsors, Suzanne agreed whole-heartedly and suggested she donate one of her pieces. This is incredibly exciting news because these are extremely professional, not to mention gorgeous, pieces of work. Some of her work has even been featured in major news sources such as the Huffington Post. For more information on Suzanne and to take a look at her portfolio, please check out her website: http://www.twentyfouratheart.com/
Our next amazing sponsor is also a client here, Michelle Garcia, Co-founder and Executive Creative Director of Sweetly Inked. This company is by far one of the coolest, most unique businesses out there. Between the artistry, fashion, and originality, it is hard not to be drawn into their modern movement. Sweetly Inked is a contemporary lifestyle brand with a keen focus on intimates, lounge, and ready-to-wear for both men and women. It is their mission to take a timeless tradition and elevate it by focusing on it’s most noble aspect: expression as a living fashion. Thank you so much for your generous donation, Michelle! www.sweetlyinked.com
In addition to these amazing new sponsors, we would also like to say “Thank You” to our repeat sponsors: Staples Orthodontics and South Coast Glow for supporting us not once, but twice! Both companies not only sponsored our first annual event, but they donated tons of giveaways for our fun raffles for the event.

WAXING. BOOBS. PINK. CHARITY. Yep, you know what that means. TIME TO GO BALD FOR BOOBS!! We are so excited to announce our 2nd annual “Bald for Boobs” charity event this October 13th. Waxing to help save lives? Yes, please!
Bald for Boobs, hosted by OC Waxing, is an event organized to raise money for breast cancer awareness. As many of you know, Breast cancer effects millions of people. Every year, mothers, sisters, daughters, spouses, and friends are diagnosed-and it is our goal to help lives that this disease has effected! At last years event, we raised over $3,000 with the help of our community. This year, we hope to exceed that, and donate all proceeds to the Hoag Breast Care Center in Newport Beach.
The day will be filled with shopping, jewelry vendors, raffles, prizes from our sponsors, and of course…WAXING! $45 Brazilians/Playboys for all clients and the event is open to the public!! If you aren’t ready to wax just yet, there are still a bunch of ways you can help! We will be selling one-of-a-kind BALD FOR BOOBS bracelets so you can show support the entire month of October.
Another great way to help us raise money is through sponsorship and donations. Sponsorship is $50 and includes mention on our t-shirts for the event, website, blog posts, and social media accounts!
Going bald for a cause and helping all of those effected by breast cancer is truly a great reason to get waxed (amongst many others)! Look good, feel good, and know you did good…what’s better than that?
Reserve your spot now, or for more information, please visit our event website at www.baldforboobs.com. We hope to see you there!
Whether you are contemplating getting waxed for the first time, or you’ve been waxing for a while, allow us to cut to the chase about the importance of getting waxed on a monthly basis, AND how it can save you some money at OC Waxing!
For starters, sticking to a regular waxing cycle is crucial to getting maximum results of thinner, finer hair. Monthly waxings keep hair more manageable, and even after your first visit, you will notice a major decrease in the amount of hair and it’s texture. Our regular clients go weeks with completely smooth skin!
Our clients that see us monthly are able to take advantage of our “DATE DISCOUNT”. What the heck is this? Well it’s pretty simple: your first visit with us for a brazilian is $60. If your following visit is conducted on or before that same calendar date of the next month- your brazilian is $50 (for example: July 8th brazilian wax= next waxing must be any day before August 8th). The next month- same thing. If our clients decide not to make that date cutoff, the brazilian will be $60. Pretty simple way to save, huh?! I know, we love it too. We have found that most ladies book before they leave. It’s on the books, we send you emails and texts to remind you, holy cow that’s totally easy.
Monthly waxing is beneficial on both ends. For clients: your waxing is much more comfortable and the appointment is over a lot quicker. Your hair growth is significantly less, and the re-growth of these hairs is so much thinner. And for you Waxologist, it’s much easier as well! The less hair you fuzzy clients have, the less elbow grease we use! We want your waxing to be beneficial, quick, and as painless as possible; monthly waxings will definitely help us achieve this goal!
This date-discount as our way of rewarding our clients for their loyalty, as well as saying ”THANK YOU”. Thank you for making our job a little bit easier, and thank you for trusting us every month to give you a great wax! Less hair for us to remove means more money in your pocket!
Bathing suit or not, date-discount waxings here at OC Waxing will save you $120 a year.
What if you don’t want to come every month? No problem-o! We still want you to save. For our clients that cannot come every month, we offer packages called “Lotus Loyalty”. Simply purchase 6 of any service at a 20% discount and come whenever you like! This is a great way to save, and wax on your schedule.
Remember, smooth skin is always in!
