Alberta’s first Fuzz Wax Bar to open in Red Deer in spring

A new salon in Red Deer, opening this spring, will focus on one thing and one thing only – hair removal.

Fuzz Wax Bar, which has locations in Toronto and Montreal, is coming to Red Deer. The location will be the brand’s first salon in the province.

Franchise partner Aly Leigh said what sets the salon apart from many out there, is memberships, and the fact that it’s just focused on waxing.

“The memberships make sense for people who are looking to make waxing part of their routine, to see more benefits, from coming in on a regular basis.

“And then the memberships also allow them to save money and there are some added perks as well along the way,” Leigh said.

The Red Deerian said the location in Timberlands Market is in the construction phase, and the expectation is the salon will opens its doors in April.

The new business venture has already created employment in the construction sector. Leigh will also hire front desk staff and licensed estheticians locally.

The salon is focused on speed waxing, which ensures less pain, and provides service to both men and women.

The 32-year-old said she is originally from Ontario, and used to be a client there with Fuzz Wax Bar. Since moving to Red Deer in 2015, she has been searching for the same experience.

A lot of bigger brands start in urban centres, and move to smaller centres, “but owning and operating where I live made the most sense to me,” said Leigh, adding the hope is to expand the brand to other Alberta centres such as Calgary and Edmonton.

“I want to be here. I want to be involved in the community. I’m proud to be a local business owner.

“It is a franchise, but I’m still a local business owner, and I’m exciting to be creating job opportunities here.”
