Dick & Jane makes tweezing and waxing a pleasure

New service now available at Rubia Hair Salon

Amy Blondheim has had a lovely time running her Rubia Hair Salon for nearly six years in Willamette Falls.

But when she met Brittany Waite, she knew it was time to expand her operation.

That is why Blondheim has started Dick & Jane Wax & Tweezing Studio, which has the motto “Less is More.”

The “less” refers to excess hair, and its removal from any part of the body will certainly help the looks of any woman, or any man, too.

“We wanted to expand our philosophy at Rubia,” Blondheim said. “There was room for improvement.”

Eyebrows are always the number one target for excess hair removal. But a card menu offered by Dick & Jane lists just about every place else on your face or body.

Making all of this possible is Waite, who is quite young but has a lot of experience. In her job interview, Blondheim says she instantly knew Waite was the person she needed.

“Brittany was the key to the whole thing,” Blondheim said.

Waite has been waxing for the past seven years, in Los Angeles, Denver and the Bay Area, and she has had many high profile clients. However, it was love, specifically her fiancé, that brought her to Oregon.

“The key is being consistent every time a customer comes in and giving them a quality experience,” Waite said. “We want to give the customer an affordable, good price for the experience they get.”

Dick & Jane has been open for only a few weeks, but it is already creating lots of customer satisfaction.

“We want people to say it was the best waxing experience they’ve ever had,” Blondheim said. “So far that is what they’re saying.”

Waite said that the salon will soon be hosting waxing parties, which will put it at the forefront of waxing studio fun.

Dick & Jane Wax & Tweezing Studio is located inside Rubia Hair Salon at 1684 Willamette Drive in West Linn. For more information, call 503 344-6189, go to the salon’s site on Facebook or go to dickandjanewax.com.

Lilly Crowder is part owner of Dick & Jane.
