Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
The Wax Spot was founded by Minnesota native Aesha Briggs after she and her family relocated to Chesapeake, Virginia. Being a Licensed Esthetician for over 20 years, Aesha saw the need for quality waxing and skin care services, so in 2018 she took a leap of faith and brought the vision of The Wax Spot to life. The salon has grown from one small room with two wax pots, a massage table and one case of wax to the beautiful facility it is today. The staff at the Wax Spot thrive on providing impeccable, professional care to each and every client.
Our goal is to provide the very best customer service and hospitality while providing the most advanced treatments, protocols, techniques, modalities, and
professional products in the esthetics industry.
