    About Kristen

    Meet Kristen, owner of Allure Wax Boutique, LLC. She began her venture nearly eight years ago after graduating from Parisian Beauty School. Kristen worked for Pretty Kitty in Hoboken and Montclair prior to their recent closings. Many of her followers didn’t want to lose her or her services {for obvious reasons}, so she took on many of them as private clients. Kristen started traveling to many of their homes to continue providing waxing services and that is when she realized that starting her own company was exactly what she wanted to do.

    There are few things more convenient than having someone come to you in the comfort of your own home to keep you looking your best. Going to get waxed is a process for most women but having someone who comes to you makes it much less intimidating.

    How Her Services Work

    Kristen offers full body waxing services and uses top of the line products and booking your appointment with her is simple. Shooting her a quick text to coordinate your schedules is best. On the day of your appointment, Kristen will set up wherever you are most comfortable. All she needs is a space large enough for a waxing table next to an outlet so she can plug in her wax machine. Set up is quick and her appointments usually last around 20 minutes. Prior to your appointment, she will review some important parts of your medical history, which is important to discuss before getting waxed. For example, if you are taking blood thinners, retinol, or other acne medication, it is important to let Kristen know beforehand.

    ^Before — must let the hair grow out before waxing

    She begins her sessions by prepping the skin with a grape seed oil. She then uses a soft cream-based wax, which her clients love, to remove unwanted hair. To finish, Kristen will apply a serum that helps ward off those nasty, painful ingrown hairs. From start to finish, she can do a full Brazilian wax in about 20 minutes, which is super convenient when you have fully loaded schedule and such little time to devote to your own self-care.

    “Kristen makes the experience client focused. She requires minimal space for setup and brings everything with her. She is extremely personable and makes a normally awkward experience comfortable and relaxed,” boasts one of her clients.

    ^After!

    Kristen’s professionalism shines through her business as she has many clients in Hoboken and Jersey City. She travels all over North Jersey and recently expanded into Clifton and Montclair. Her travel radius stretches about a half hour, but Kristen will travel a bit further if two or more clients book as a group {so definitely get your girls together and make it a party}. Kristen’s hours are extremely flexible and she is always able to accommodate your schedule.
