WAXIT OFFICIALLY COMES TO TABLE BAY THIS JUNE – THEIR FIRST CAPE TOWN FLAGSHIP STORE.


Regardless of whether you're a first-timer or even a seasoned client, you’re sure to have heard of the brand WAXIT, either from their clever branding specs, in conversation or from personal experience. If you've ever had your hair stripped from your body, you know that a professional service is of the utmost importance when it comes to your waxing needs.

WAXIT is a popular wax bar defined as a refuge of removal, a haven of hairlessness, a sanctuary of smooth. They have so cleverly created a place where men and women alike can go to wax it expertly and discreetly, free from the intrusions that come with visiting full-service salons. Committed to the silky and the smooth, WAXIT follow three simple steps: Prepare. Process. Pamper.

At WAXIT, they make sure that before and after your wax, your skin is cleansed, nourished and soothed. Their WAXITologists® are always available, professional and discreet. Plus, WAXIT offers additional treatments that aren’t available at “multi-functional” salons like full body waxing and vajacials. With over 9 stores nationwide, 2022 boasts tremendous growth for the brand, with more than 4 new stores opening countrywide throughout the year, one of which is their very first Cape Town wax bar – said to be one of their most sought-after locations yet!

Franchisee owner, Anthea Dennis, hopes that WAXIT Table Bay will become the GO-TO place for all waxing services. The experience is what will bring people back.” When it comes to the brand itself, WAXIT boasts a reputation for being a luxury waxing service, offering quality wax bar treatments and products. It was for this reson that Anthea felt it was a good fit for her to engage with the brand and open up her very own wax bar. “I am absolutely thrilled that Cape Town gets to enjoy the WAXIT experience now. They have been missing out for long enough. As a customer in Pretoria, I was able to enjoy the professionalism of the brand. They are not only quick; they get it right every time! I saw the gap in the Cape Town market for this exclusive waxing service and had to be the first one to open a store here,” she says. As the first of its kind in the Western Cape, Anthea was faced with the hard decision of determining the perfect location for the first ever WAXIT wax bar.

“When we consider possible locations for the brand, we take into account the demographic (the size of the area, ages and market) we would want to attract. The Blouberg and surrounds was the perfect spot for a smooth launch. We know that parts of the country are semi-grating to Cape Town with Melkbos and Blouberg being the up-and-coming areas to relocate to, we wanted to get into this area before the boom. It was important to me that I was considered as part of the community by my clientele. That we could chat about local happenings and such. That we shared the common purpose of adding value to the area,” she says. WAXIT is well recognised and reputable, and they have invested in the creation of a brand that has scope for nationwide expansion. They cater to women, men and young adults; and their pricing is competitive which makes it accessible to a broad market base.

“Whilst our offering is available to males, females and teens of every shape and size, I would look forward to growing WAXIT Cape Town to a destination of choice to the bridal industry who are already so in love with our beautiful Cape Town,” adds Anthea. At WAXIT, they attract high-caliber individuals for a reason. From franchisees to WAXITologists®, to clients, their team is made up of some of the most driven, purposeful and awe-inspiring people around. They pride themselves on embracing their core values and entrenching themselves in living their brand. At WAXIT, their franchise opportunities are designed to have you open, trained and running from 45-60 days of signing the agreements. From comprehensive training to ongoing mentorship, marketing strategies and products, we give you all the tools you need to run and grow your own hair removal franchise.

With a love and passion for waxing, the WAXITologists® are there to make your experience as comfortable as possible at WAXIT. They’ll lend you their ears if you would like to chat, but if you would like to relax, their rooms are equipped with music to help you relax. Whether it’s low-rise jeans, itsy bitsy bikinis or button downs, WAXIT makes sure you achieve your best look – smooth. When asked what she is most excited about when it comes to her new wax bar, Anthea simple stated: Sharing the brand with the Western Cape!”
