Rococo Wax Boutique

We’ve all dealt with the aches and pains of waxing, trying to find a reliable place and hoping you don’t walk out the door looking more freakish than you thought you did going in. Being comfortable while you get those pesky hairs removed is always a must. Being surrounded by local works of art and one of the sweetest estheticians in the city is a huge plus! Megan Rabe, owner of Rococo Waxing Boutique shares with us the joys of her job, her love for Portland and invites us to her Grand Opening Party.E+E: How did you get into the world of waxing?Megan Rabe: In 2008, I started doing makeup, hair and wardrobe styling with sister and producer, Jillian Rabe, and very quickly became immersed into the fashion industry. Being surrounded by talent inspired me to enroll at the Aveda Institute where I became a licensed esthetician and fell in love with waxing. My passion grew as I developed the concept of having a waxing studio of my own.  I get the opportunity to help people feel better about themselves every day, I love my job.E+E: Best on the job story. Ready, go!MR: Being able to offer a comfortable, positive place for my clients is one of the things I value most. I had a client, after a series of upsetting events, come to see me and gave me the biggest hug after her appointment. The remarkable women, and men, who come through my door, have been part in Rococo becoming something far passed just waxing. It's about human connection and being able to help people feel beautiful.E+E: Favorite thing about Portland.MR: I love the freedom to wear many hats in Portland; almost everyone I meet here has a wealth of knowledge in a specific trade and a number of super cool skills.  The eclectic mix that makes up Portland’s culture in talent, fashion, music and play is a never-ending resource for collaboration and inspiration. As a small business owner, Portland acts as a positive, centralized hub for new ideas and great people to work on and share them with.Join Rococo on Saturday for their Grand Opening from 7-9pm.
