An action repeated on a schedule.

Sacred [adj/“sayk-red”]:

Precious, in high esteem/regard, to be revered at all cost, devoted to, deeply respected, unbroken, dear to the heart.


At Wax That, we view self-care as a sacred act. By offering the highest quality (as well as most comfortable) waxing experience in town, we celebrate your beauty ritual.  

Our philosophy lies in the idea that beautification comes not from a place of lack, but from a place of abundance. We’re here to help you celebrate and appreciate yourself - you are enough.

Know that when you come to see us as part of your beauty ritual, this space is all yours. Leave everything behind for a little while. Slow down. Put the phone on do not disturb. Be cared for. After all, you deserve it, right?

All of our waxing services come with complimentary acupressure, aromatherapy, and crystal therapy. Our crystals change based on seasons and the chakra calendar, allowing you to focus your intentions on a variety of energies upon each visit.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

We’re here to help you celebrate and appreciate yourself - you are enough.

Wax That is a Safe Salon

Wax That follows impeccable safety measures, and shares them openly with our clients. As the only waxing salon in Austin to offer its own apprenticeship program, Wax That upholds quality care standards through each of its employees. Our safety policies include:

  • Never double-dipping wax.
  • Changing linens (with bleach) after every client.
  • Cleaning tools with medical grade disinfectants.
  • Using gloves (including for facial wax).
  • Using tools to select wax sticks (not bare hands/fingers).
  • Do not rush the procedure or client exchange.
  • Do not take excessive time to complete the procedure: we want our clients to be comfortable, and comfort is a safety concern.
  • Disinfecting all hard surfaces, including tables and lamps between every client.
  • Verifying client health pre-procedure.
  • Inclining our service table at an angle that is correct for the client’s body.
  • Practicing specific safety measures for pregnant clients.
  • Taking care of our estheticians through service furniture ergonomics.

Wax That is an ethical salon


We also strive to maintain an uplifting work environment for our employees and partners by supporting the following initiatives:

  • Pay above market wages, make each staff member eligible for time off (rare in our industry).
  • Hire employees at W2 status so the tax burden isn’t all on them.
  • Vigilant about monitoring technician hours to avoid overwork.
  • Offer our own Waxing Apprenticeship Program to train and certify waxing specialists and offer the only Wax Specialist Certification in an Austin waxing salon. This whole human approach means that most of our technicians have been with us for a number of years.
  • Carefully source our retail products and develop relationships with the artisans who make them. Additionally, 98% of our products are woman-owned.

Practicing self-care requires faith in your practitioners, and we are delighted to serve you.
