Summer is {almost here} and while the debate about waxing, threading, and laser will continue — we’re here to tell you all about the European Wax Center in Hoboken because, essentially, it’s awesome. Locally-owned and located at 1135 Maxwell Lane {on 12th Street by the water}, this spot is a prime locale to offer hair removal and waxing services for men and women. Here’s a peek inside our visit to European Wax Center in Hoboken:

Upon walking in, you’ll be greeted by the receptionist who will get you situated for your appointment. They’re very busy but usually take appointments right in.

Highly recommend making an appointment in advance {in fact, it doesn’t appear walk-ins are even allowed unless you ‘walk-in’ to make your appointment for a later time}. But when you get on that waxing flow {aka schedule}, you’ll probably want to make an appointment anyway. They allow online booking here.

The wait was quick for the appointment, as Marjorie, the esthetician, was ready very quickly and came over to greet me. We walked to the treatment room {there are several}, and chatted about eyebrow structure, length, and got to work.

What’s unique about European Wax is that they use purple wax, which for any scaredy-cats {like yours truly} who are nervous about waxing versus threading {threading junkie right here 🙋}, you’ll feel calmer knowing the esthetician can see exactly where the wax is going more easily than a clear wax formula.

Purple wax for the win.

Real talk — Irish/Eastern European roots mean that you can’t forget the middle. Le sigh.

Marjorie was phenomenal — super helpful, patient, and of course, talented in the hair removal department {and even let us take a pic of her adorable self!}. While we’ve only been to her, in our Hoboken Girl Insiders group on Facebook, we shared the experience there and many people reported back how they love European Wax, and Marjorie, as well as several other staff members there. Not to mention 4.5 star reviews on Yelp.

As far as pricing, an eyebrow wax is $21, so it’s affordable but not super cheap {however, quality-wise, you’re getting amazing work and won’t have to do it as often as threading = score}. For waxing newbies, you’ll need to come in every 3-6 weeks depending on the treatment, and once you get into a schedule it will be easy to re-book your appointment — which can also be done online — based on how fast your hair grows.
