mer-maid

/ˈmərˌmād/

a fictitious or mythical half-human sea creature with the head and trunk of a woman and the tail of a fish, conventionally depicted as beautiful and with long flowing golden hair.

The Mermaid is almost universally found throughout human mythologies from Europe to The Far East and in between.  These beautiful, enchanting creatures have captivated the imagination of mankind through the ages. Mermaid Wax was inspired by these magnificent tales and intends to carry on the tradition of their irresistible and fierce nature through our line of hair removal products.

Mermaid Wax is made by an Esthetician, for Estheticians. We strive to offer only the highest quality products to ensure your waxing experience is superior to all others. Our hair removal waxes, are safe to use from head to toe and remove both fine and coarse hair from the root.

 Meet The Owner

Kristen was born and raised in Austin, Texas. For a career, she knew she wanted to do something that helped people feel good about themselves. Once she discovered waxing, Kristen instantly knew it was a perfect fit. She went to Avenue Five Institute to get her Esthetics License and immediately started waxing. She worked for a well known waxing franchise for a couple years to gain experience and then decided to make the jump and open her own waxing center. And, The Hiss’n Kitten Waxing Center (HK Wax Center - Austin Arbor) was born!

While running her waxing business, Kristen tested a TON of different hard wax brands. If you followed her on Youtube or even visit her channel today, you will find evidence of this. However, she always found something she wished she could change about each wax. Whether it was the length of time the hard wax was elastic, or being able to pick up both coarse and fine hair, Kristen would find herself frustrated with each brand. Plus, wax companies continued to raise their prices multiple times! Instead of continuing to complain about it, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Kristen wanted a wax that was captivating to look at, yet fierce when it came to removing all hair types. She experimented with the ingredients until the perfect hard wax was born. Mermaid Wax was exactly what she had been looking for all these years: a super elastic premium hard wax at an affordable cost for all Estheticians. AND just for fun, she threw some iridescent bio-degradable glitter in the wax!

We plan on growing Mermaid Wax for years to come. In the coming months, we will be adding more hard wax lines as well as soft wax and waxing accessories; wax warmers, pre and post wax products, etc. Eventually we hope to offer any accessory Estheticians need to run their business.

We appreciate all of you who have been with us from the beginning and are excited to see what the future holds!
