Wax That

Wax That is a Great Place to Work

We strive to maintain a positive, uplifting work environment for each Wax That employee, one that supports a healthy work/life balance. As a result, we 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, are vigilant about monitoring technician hours to avoid overwork, and have built our own Wax Apprentice Program from the ground-up. We are proud to be the only waxing salon in Austin that offers a signature Wax Specialist Certification. Because of this whole human approach, most of our technicians have been with us for a number of years.

There are several reasons to work at Wax That (great coffee being just one of them), but here are our favorites:

our culture

We’re selective about who we hire, and it shows with our amazing crew. The vibe at Wax That is fun but pro, team-oriented but client-focused. And, you’re anything but a number here: you’re a key spice that makes the whole dish work.

Our clientele

Our customers value adornment, and this is a special part of their self-care routine. We believe that like attracts like, and as a result, the women and men who walk through our doors share our values. They (like us) believe in loving the skin you’re in, with quality ingredients and loving application, whether they’re tech CEO’s or college grads, yoginis or Cross Fitters, taco fans or – oh, wait. We’re all taco fans.

your career

Our pay structure is above market, and as Wax That grows, so do you. We are not a revolving door of employees; we cultivate long-lasting relationships. (For example, Graduates of our Apprenticeship Program have gone on to become trainers of the same program.)

Because we are boutique, we can do things at Wax That that chains can’t. Have an idea for a fun beauty workshop? Cool! Pitch it. We like it when our estheticians want to spread the beauty love to our customers – and we reward that initiative.
