La Tira Wax Studio found its first home in Noe Valley in January of 2013 as a pop-up wax studio in the back of a hair salon. After a successful year waxing all the ladies and gents of Noe Valley and beyond, the studio moved to a larger space on Church + 25th Street. Only one block away from its old location, the studio added on other services including facials, peels, and threading.
The studio uses only the highest quality wax and products on clients, and always adheres to the most sanitary practices possible. The studio supports local vendors, carrying beauty products and housing custom-made furniture created by local artists in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Many of the beauty products sold in our boutique are hand-crafted using sustainable, organic, + vegan ingredients.
La Tira Wax Studio is a collective of extremely talented and seasoned estheticians. All estheticians come from different backgrounds of esthetics, and bring their own specialties and skills to the studio.
