An Estheticians Journey

We are a boutique waxing salon located in Garner, NC that provides speed waxing services at the best prices to our community. Our focus is to provide the absolute best guest experience, from booking an appointment to walking in the door and leaving fully satisfied with your service.

ER Wax Bar was established in 2020 by Elizabeth. The salon is unique in many facets, the first of which is that we are privately owned and operate out of our own Store Front. We do not share a space or are located inside another salon. But that's not how we started.............................................................

ER Wax Bar had a small and humble start in 2020. Elizabeth started the business in June of that year at the Salon Lofts located on Falls of Neuse Rd. With one room, one fixed bed and one wax pot, ER Wax Bar started serving guests. 

While Salon Lofts was a great location and was perfect for a small start, it became clear to Elizabeth that she wanted her own location, her own store front. Initially she thought this would take a couple years. 

In October of 2020, after just four months of operating, Elizabeth identified a demand for a waxing boutique nearer to her house in Johnston County. 

She added a second location in Peddlers Village in the 40/42 area and brought on Erin to the team! 

Having two locations was tough! At that time Elizabeth would work three days at one location and four days at the other. 

At Peddlers Village, Elizabeth with help of her husband and friends transformed the ugly green room into a treatment room!

Opening a second location at 40/42 proved to be a smart decision. Elizabeth and Erin experienced massive growth and with demand so high, Elizabeth started looking for a bigger location. Her own location. A Store Front!

Through hard work, networking and persistence Elizabeth signed the lease for her current location at 42WEST in November of 2020. 

Elizabeth signed the lease in November with a planned opening date in January of 2021! The location was an ugly empty room. There were less than 60 days to upfit the location!

There was a lot of work to get done in a short period of time. It wouldn't be possible without the help of friends and family. 

With the help of close friends Lindsay and Tom along with Erin, Marisa and Elizabeth's husband Jesse, the new store front was ready to open! It took long hours, late nights and a lot of sweat equity. 

Everything from the flooring to the walls, paint and decorations were all done in house. Quite literally, the salon was built by Elizabeth, Friends and Family. 

 

After the opening of the current location in Garner, Elizabeth closed down both locations at Salon Lofts and Peddlers Village. All operations were consolidated at 42West and Erin decided to join ER Wax Bar as a full time Esthetician in January 2021. 

We continue to celebrate our  growth and success and we are extremely grateful to all of our guests. 

Sierra joined the team in September of 2023 and will continue offering more hours and availability into 2024.
