A new specialty salon is serving the North Shore, dedicated to waxing and offering additional services in makeup and airbrush spray tanning.
The grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for Wax Republic’s second location at 2 Main Street, Roslyn on the corner of Main Street and Old Northern Boulevard, took place on May 4 from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Lisa Lazzara, owner and esthetician, of Huntington, also owns a Wax Republic in Huntington located at 249 Main Street.
After just over three years of successfully managing the Huntington location, Lazzara decided to “grow the brand on the North Shore,” she said.
She said the Roslyn area is a really great market to tap into, describing the region as a place where there is a demand for these services, where women care about beauty, health and maintaining oneself.
Lazzara describes the salon as beautiful and hygienic, branded with lilac colors to exude a soothing, calming mood.
“It’s a boutique salon,” she said. “Custom-design. Boutique charm coupled with super friendly staff.”
Lazzara said she plans to split her time between the two stores.
As a grand opening special, clients will receive their first service free.
