Stay in the know with our waxing blog.

At Urban Waxx not only do we want to give you the best wax ever, we also want to share our favorite products ever – all of which (conveniently for you) make AMAZING gifts! Plus did you know we will gift wrap any of your Urban Waxx-bought gifts while you’re having a waxing treatment done? It’s our holiday treat to you this season.


After all, Urban Waxx was created around a very simple philosophy: do one thing and be the best at it. Our group of super talented and trendy Smooth Operators, who demand perfection in their products, have selected the Urban Waxx best of the best for holiday gifts this year.
