WAXED, located at 434 William Street, is a business offering waxing, eyelash extensions and more, newly opened in the city centre.
“We do full body waxing anywhere from Brazilians to back, chest and eyebrow shaping. And we also do eyelash extensions, eyelash lifts, tinting, eyebrow lamination.” said Mindy Day, owner.
Day, of Williamsport, decided to start the business after seeing a need in the community.
“I did some research and found that there was no one out there who specialized in hair removal. Downtown Williamsport is getting closer and closer, there’s so much going on here. So we went looking.” Day said. “I really wanted to be in this environment. I wanted to be in the center.”
WAXED has a team of trained and certified specialists for each service.
“Aundrea, she has been doing eyelashes for several years. She excels in facial hair removal and is certified in eyelash extensions.” Day said.
“Jen is our full body wax expert. Jen does Brazilian waxing. This is an intimate service. So she had specialized training.”
The store also offers a selection of locally made accessories.
“Practically everything there are local artisans. I am very passionate about women entrepreneurs. This is a perfect opportunity for them to show some of their stuff.” Day said.
“I love it. Like First Friday traffic. People passing by and saying hello. Just being a part of the energy and the world down here is very rewarding.” Day said.
All appointments can be made online, from a website linked to their Facebook and Instagram page.
“The best thing is that you can book your own service” Day said. “So through our Facebook and Instagram, there’s now a book. So you can literally book now. You can be lying in bed at 12 o’clock, say, oh, I really need to wax my eyebrows. Click the book now and make your appointment. I’d say 95% of our customers book theirs. People love the luxury of being able to do it themselves.”
