“Fuzz Wax Bar – No nails, no makeup, no blow-dries, no blush. Fuzz Wax Bar is waxing, and waxing only. The shop offers maintenance packages for the gifted hair-grower, and welcomes walk-ins for a last-minute groom. Plenty of products, too, to “soothe” your visit.”Read on here.

Review on Fuzz Wax Bar.
“…we really try to be efficient; in and out, for the woman on the go.” Frampton says Fuzz’s Brazilians, for example, take about 25 minutes. “We’ve done some research,” she says, “and some company policies say to keep you in the chair for 40 minutes or more so that you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth.” Read on here.

She’s so Savvy

Fuzz’s service was so fast and painless, I signed up for an annual membership on the spot! If you’re someone interested in waxing, then I highly highly recommend their services! I’m actually looking forward to going back to Fuzz, now I just need to call my long time aesthetician…” Read on here.

“Enter the wax bar, a no-nonsense, quick in-and-out destination that has popped up in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto, and will doubtless be coming to other cities near you. I noticed one a few blocks from my house the other day, called Fuzz Wax Bar, and decided to poke my head in.(…) First, underarms. Surprisingly, the “hard wax” used at Fuzz Wax Bar for that area (and Brazilians) is considerably less painful than the soft wax that would later be applied to my legs. It’s a gel-based product sourced from France that goes on warm and goowy, and then hardens as it cools. After a few minutes, she just peeled it—and my hair—off. That was easy. No razor needed now for around four weeks. And when the new hair comes in, it should be progressively finer and weaker.” Read on here.

“The top hair removal tips for guys on how to prep for your waxing appointment. (…) “Guys always mentally prepare themselves before they come in, they don’t stand around too long because I think that if they do, they talk themselves out of it,” says Jessica Frampton, co-owner of Fuzz Wax Bar in Toronto. To help educate men in the process of a waxing appointment, we chatted with Frampton about the best techniques and pain-relieving tips for head-to-toe hair removal.” Read on here.

“The women behind Fuzz Wax Bar tackled the art of hair removal with eyes on an empire. (…) What kind of challenges did you face when you first opened?
The main challenge for us was the risk in opening Fuzz Wax Bar. We were opening a concept that had yet to exist in Toronto at that time. [Pairing this] with no prior salon or business experience made our market research and realistic expectations very difficult to evaluate. Since our opening, other wax bars have popped up in the city, so it’s safe to say we started a really great trend.” Read on here.

“Within minutes, my waxer came to collect me. She brought me to a nice little room, clean and modern like the waiting area, and left me strip down. I quickly examined my surroundings while fumbling with my wooly socks. Clean bed with fresh paper? Check. Clean wax trolley with no leftover drips, sticks or random hairs? Check. Clean floor (as in, not having to hear that tearing-paper sound as your wax-riddled shoes pull away from the floor with each step for the rest of the day)? Check. Oh, and good music playing, to boot.” Read on here.

“Since opening in February of this year, they have seen a large group of wax newbies come through their doors. Jessica says, “The estheticians do one thing, and they do it really well. Newbies can put their goodies in our girls’ hands because they see up to 25 brazilian waxes a day. So if you’re a newbie, you’re likely to want to go to a professional who is waxing often.” Read on here.

“So I went for it. The full Manzilian… Fuzz Wax Bar, Toronto’s first wax bar dedicated to the waxing services for both men and women were my very gracious hosts for this unique experience…”Are gay men the target audience?” I ignorantly asked. And while they admitted about 50 per cent of the men who engage in waxing services are gay, there was a growing number of men that were either trying to match their partners in the hairless arena or trying to add that to their appeal of being young and single. Fair enough I thought. Show me to my room Tasha.” Read on here.
