Question & Answer:

Q: How is your wax different than other types of wax?
A: European Wax Center's Comfort Wax is a hard wax. That means it is applied directly to the skin and removed without cloth strips. It can be applied at a cooler temperature than other waxes so it doesn't burn the skin. It clings to hair, but not skin, which results in less irritation.

Q: What is the four-step Comfort Wax system?
A: Our four-step Comfort Wax system is designed to produce the Ultimate Wax Experience by cleansing, protecting, waxing and rejuvenating the skin.

Step One: Cleanse
The first step is our pre-wax cleanser which removes any make up, oil, or lotion that may prevent the quality of the wax from taking place.

Step Two: Protect
The second step is our pre-wax oil which creates a protective barrier between the skin and the wax, making sure that the wax only adheres to the hair and not to the skin.

Step Three: Wax
In the third step, we use our exclusive Comfort Wax that was formulated in Paris from 100% natural beeswax. The wax is uniquely formulated with a lower melting point, so it is applied at a more comfortable temperature. It is alcohol-free so it does not dry the skin or get brittle. We're the only ones in the world that have this wax.

Step Four: Rejuvenate
The fourth step is our rejuvenating step. We use one of our exclusive finishing products like our EWC Ingrown Hair Serum to prevent any ingrown hairs, bumps or breakouts. It sends our guests out feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

Q: What qualifies a EWC wax specialist?
A: All European Wax Center wax specialists are licensed and trained estheticians. They are also trained extensively with our own Comfort Wax and receive additional education for mastering waxing efficiency and product knowledge. As the world leader in comfortable and healthy waxing, we ensure that our wax specialists receive ongoing training and coaching.

Q: What types of services do you offer free for a first time guest?
A: Women can take advantage of a free eyebrow, under arm, or bikini line service. Men can receive a free eyebrow, ear or nose wax.

Q: What products do you carry? 
A: European Wax Center carries a range of high-end products designed to help guests continue the Ultimate Wax Experience at home.
SLOW IT BODY WASH and SLOW IT BODY LOTION are film-free and won't clog pores
INGROWN HAIR SERUM when used consistently, it prevents bumps, breakouts and ingrown hairs

Rethink Electrolysis 
With a 120 year proven track record, Electrolysis recently became even more effective and more comfortable than ever before thanks to a new generation of epilators, the best of which is the Apilus Platinum.

In Central Texas, only IBC has the Apilus Platinum, and only IBC has an electrologist with 20 years of experience who is an Académie Apilus National Trainer and a Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE).

There's no reason to suffer through the bad reactions, extreme pain and poor results at other hair removal clinics!

IBC will remove your hair with minimal—if any—pain, quickly and effectively and PERMANENTLY!

Have you tried other methods to remove unwanted hair, and not been satisfied with the results? Here's why: Other methods are classified as hair REDUCTION, NOT hair REMOVAL. Electrolysis is the ONLY proven method of PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL approved by the FDA.

Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal that is effective on EVERY hair type, regardless of color or coarseness, and is SAFE on any skin type.
At IBC, the only thing you have to lose is HAIR!

Wild Orchid Salon

800 West 3rd St Suite 1306
Austin, TX 78701

The goal at Wild Orchid Salon is to meet the needs of it's clients by using a combination of knowledge, natural products and passion! After five years at one of Austin's elite downtown salons, Wild Orchid owner and stylist, Danielle, decided the time was right for her to open her own salon. After taking over Wild Orchid earlier this year, the salon was immediately renovated with new reception furniture and comfortable styling chairs. The ambience is modern and clean yet relaxing with soft calming gray on the walls, a crisp white for the trim and doors and accents of purple. On a comfortable Spring day, you will find Wild Orchid's garage door open welcoming clients and allowing them to enjoy a beautiful Austin day overlooking Lady Bird Lake. Keeping true to Austin's love for music, Wild Orchid is outfitted with Bose sound and music from Danielle's favorite playlist providing an ambient vibe. Danielle's vision was for her clients to have a fun, relaxing experience walking out the door elated with their hair.

When building a team she looked for talented Master stylists having a minimum 12 years experience and sharing her love for hair and beauty. With a variety of hair services including ombré, balayage, keratin treatments and hot head extensions for female clientele and scalp massages for male clientele, you are sure to leave feeling like a million bucks! To maintain your beautiful hair and protect your skin, Wild Orchid Salon offers sulphate and paraben free, professional hair products by Kevin Murphy and paraben and BPA free Livestrong sunscreen by Thinksport.

As Wild Orchid builds on its success, Danielle has plans for further renovations and just maybe an expansion of space at the end of 2012 to bring additional skin care and spa services to Wild Orchid's clients!
