We all may be covered up for the winter, but in the upcoming months, the temperature will rise and we will be losing layers of clothing—and that’s where the Patchogue Chamber’s new member, European Wax Center comes in.
European Wax Center is located at 499-95 Sunrise Highway, North Service Road in Patchogue, in the Gateway Shopping Center. There are 657 locations nationwide and approximately 18 locations on Long Island alone. The business began in 2004 in Aventura, Florida and franchises began selling in 2008.
“We chose Patchogue because we want the people of Suffolk County to have somewhere to go for their waxing needs,” said Kelly Kirsh, director of marketing for European Wax Center. “We also just love the town itself. It is heavily populated with a lot of great, welcoming individuals and many other awesome businesses.”
The Patchogue location is owned by Tommy Regoukos and Nick Galanis, who also started Beach Bum Tanning on Long Island and have been business partners for more than 13 years. After the success of Beach Bum Tanning, they expanded their involvement to include European Wax Center and Orangetheory Fitness.
European Wax Center offers full-body waxing services for women and all services are available to men, minus the Brazilian service. The wax used at European Wax Center is exclusive and very different than traditional waxing. It is a hard comfort wax that is applied a few degrees warmer than the person’s body temperature. It then adheres to the hair and not the person’s skin. The licensed wax specialists do not use a strip to remove the wax, so it is a more comfortable experience than the traditional waxing received at salons. They also offer a product line that rejuvenates the skin, combats ingrown hairs and slows hair growth. The line includes body wash, lotion, ingrown hair serum, an exfoliate and products to help restore and shape eyebrows.
“We want to share with the community that European Wax Center is the best place to go for the ultimate waxing experience,” said Kirsh. “Our process is second to none and we make sure each guest has the most comfortable and happy experience. We want to develop a relationship with each guest and hope that they come to us regularly for their waxing needs.”
