European Wax Center started as a family-owned business; now, it has locations across the country. The location in Burlington was voted “Best Hair Removal and Wax Spot.” 

The staff at the Burlington location does not disappoint, according to Elon University sophomore Emily Cohn, who said she has had many positive experiences at the salon.

“European Wax Center’s customer service is exceptional,” Cohn said. “They’re reliable, always friendly and put me at ease during waxing sessions.”

The store’s website says that they put their values into action to delight their guests with an exceptional waxing experience.

Store manager Magan Mcray said she was not surprised when they were voted the best.

“It’s a really great store here with a lot of great people,” Mcray said. “We all really enjoy it here and I think that’s what makes us great.”

The store offers many services — including Brazilian waxing, brow waxing, body waxing and facial hair waxing. Mcray said that Elon students make up a significant amount of their clients.

“We have a lot of Elon girls that definitely come see us,” Mcray said. “They all help us out a lot by being able to spread the word.” 

Though waxing can be an unpleasant experience for some, European Wax Center makes the process enjoyable, according to Cohn.

“They made me feel super comfortable during the whole process,” Cohn said.
