Grizzly Bare Waxing Studio was created in November of 2009 by Jessica Rouse, a Canadian esthetician with a passion for skin care! This unique and specialized Studio has filled a void in Missoula; Jessica saw the need for devotion to waxing and was determined to bring it.
From delicate brow sculpting to custom-shaped Brazilian wax services, artistic flare is something you’re sure to find at this Studio. We’re not about Plain Jane at this place! And, as mentioned in the local Kaimin newspaper, “precision is paramount” at Grizzly Bare, so leaving smooth and satisfied with your service is our number one goal.
In 2018 the Grizzly Bare Waxing Studio expanded and rebranded to BARE wax + skin with a mission to continue offering meticulous waxing services while creating lasting impressions.
Jessica Rouse — Waxologist/Acne specialist/Owner
Most of my life experiences have involved being an artist — painting, sculpting, photography and anything crafty. When I eventually recognized my strong interest in skin care, and completed my training at the Blanche MacDonald Centre in Vancouver, BC, I was led to the wonderful world of waxing. I knew I had stumbled upon a career choice that would satisfy my artistic being while providing me the opportunity to give hands-on care to others.
When I moved to Missoula in May 2009, I was determined to give Missoula something I felt it needed — a studio devoted to waxing. Opening Grizzly Bare Waxing Studio (now BARE wax + skin) was my chance to follow my dream and to help others feel great about themselves. As you will see, waxing is my passion, and I love what I do!
Karee Harrison — Waxologist
I was born and raised in San Diego, California, and moved to Montana in 2007. Here I followed my passion for skin care and attended the Bitterroot School of Cosmetology. I have been an esthetician since 2007 and absolutely love it. Creating lasting relationships with my clients means a lot to me, and I’m often sought after for my eyebrow shaping and Brazilian wax skills.
It’s great to be here in Montana with my twin boys, and I am so excited to be a part of BARE!

I was born and raised in Montana. I attended the Aveda Institute of Denver in 2014 and shortly after realized that I had a passion for waxing! I love making my clients feel beautiful and pampered. Getting to work one-on-one with the people of Missoula is one of my favorite parts of being an esthetician! When I’m not waxing you’ll find me outside hiking, running, or paddle boarding!
