It’s the holiday season, so naturally the first things that come to mind are A) What the heck am I going to get everyone on my gifting list? And B) How am I going to fit all that shopping and traveling into an already busy schedule? (C would be ‘how much is this all going to cost?’ But that’s neither here nor there.) Add in multiple birthday celebrations, parties and miscellaneous get-togethers (my favorite kind) and the next six weeks start looking pretty hectic. Fun, yes, but hectic.
This time of year is also when I inevitably start slacking on my self-care routine: My daily yoga becomes an afterthought, I go through my skincare steps on autopilot, and don’t even get me started on the last time I got my split-ends trimmed. But this year, I decided that if I was going to actually enjoy the season and all the merriment that comes along with it, I needed to take care of myself first. So I set my sights on one thing that I knew would make me feel more confident—and that I could fit into my jam-packed days: waxes. Waxing is one of those things I’ve always wanted to try, but the buildup to it just felt like such a hassle (and somewhat scary). Once I decided waxes would be my self-care treat this year, I needed to figure out how to make it as seamless as possible. That’s where European Wax Center comes in.
