You should feel comfortable with your Waxologist, so I'm doing some short feature posts on our team members.
Karee Harrison is our most tenured team member. Since she's joined Grizzy Bare Waxing back in 2012, we estimate she's expertly conducted almost 10,000 waxing sessions with our valued clients. Wow!
Let's talk with Karee...
Jessica: Tell us how you first got into esthetics and waxing?
Karee: I have always been obsessed withs skin care. Since I was a teen with acne, I was fascinated with how products effect the skin. I knew I wasn’t interested in dermatology and the perscription side of the industry but more of the natural side of things… I also have darker hair, and when I was younger I was teased for having a “mustache” which now, looking back, wasn’t that bad. But it did start me on a long skin care and body hair journey. Esthetics was the perfect fit for me, and I still enjoy it just as much almost 10 years later.
J: What's your favorite part about waxing?
K: My favorite part will always be being able to see an immediate end result, and, in the end, making someone feel more beautiful and confident.
J: What do you do for fun when you're not waxing?
K: My favorite hobby is gardening and canning my crops. I also enjoy fishing, camping, huckleberry picking, and swimming at the lake with the family in the summer. I am a licensed hunter — both bow and rifle — but right now, with how young the boys are and our last one on the way, I won’t be having much time 'til they get a little older.
J: Do you have an especially rewarding story or experience from working at the Grizzly Bare you’d like to share?
K: Well… the most rewarding experiences I get from working here are when I get young adolescents who gets teased or are embarrassed by hair, no matter where it is, who come in and gain the confidence to be around their peers or significant other. [I can really relate] since this is something I delt with when I was younger.
J: What is your most popular service?
K: My most popular service would be some form of bikini/brazilian wax. Although brow designs are coming in at a close second.
J: Your favorite place to hang out in Missoula?
K: My favorite place to hang out in Missoula would be Ridge Fitness where I get my decompression time. I enjoy being active and healthy, and this is where I go enjoy a little “me time”.
Karee receives great client feedback on our Yelp page. She is definitely a star player, but follow Rebecca's advice and "plan ahead because she books up early."
