Our journey began in 2008
In the bustling winter of December 2008, a visionary entrepreneur by the name of Zoe Kelly embarked on a mission to revolutionize the beauty industry in the charming city of Cork. Fueled by a passion for offering top-notch treatments to a discerning clientele, Zoe set her sights on a particular gap in the market that begged to be filled – a specialist waxing salon that would provide an experience like no other.
At that time, Cork had yet to witness the likes of CityWax, as Zoe decided to christen her budding venture. With an acute eye for detail and a strong commitment to perfection, she envisioned a haven where the fear and discomfort often associated with waxing would be replaced with an indulgent, premium experience. The prevailing beauty landscape lacked a specialist salon that would exclusively use top-tier brands and employ impeccable techniques, leaving clients with an impeccable finish and a renewed sense of confidence.
Zoe and a close confidante engaged in animated conversations, discussing the lamentable lack of exemplary waxing services in Cork. Tales of friends who waited interminable weeks for appointments at specialist waxing establishments in Dublin only served to fuel Zoe’s determination further. She knew that Cork deserved nothing less than the finest, and she was determined to be the catalyst for this transformation.
“Everywhere I had been to, the waxing was very painful, very messy, and the tools and equipment never looked clean,” Zoe reminisced, her eyes glinting with determination. “I knew I could create something unique here in Cork that would provide that premium service missing in this city.”
With her background in training and development, Zoe had a profound appreciation for the significance of staff training and progression. She understood that a thriving team lay at the core of any successful enterprise. Armed with this belief, Zoe was resolute in fostering an environment that would nurture her team’s talents, leading to their personal growth and a shared sense of fulfillment.
Thus, in the early months of 2009, CityWax opened its doors in the heart of Blackrock, Cork. It quickly became the talk of the town, drawing clients from far and wide who sought solace in the hands of experienced professionals. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, akin to stepping into a haven where one’s worries melted away, much like wax under the tender care of Zoe’s team.
As word spread about the exceptional services and the commitment to creating an unparalleled experience, the demand for CityWax grew exponentially. Clients longed for more locations and a broader range of services to cater to their diverse needs. Zoe, fueled by her passion for excellence, was more than ready to meet these expectations.
Year after year, the business flourished, expanding its horizons and opening new salons across Cork. But it wasn’t merely about numbers or locations; it was about realizing Zoe’s vision of crafting an inclusive and comprehensive beauty experience. In 2021, as the company continued to evolve and adapt, it was time for a transformation that reflected the essence of their journey.
