WHO IS KEI?
Wife. Mother. Boss
Just a girl who decided to go for it... A licensed Esthetician of 10 years, and a powerhouse in her field, Kei Curry, better known as The Wax Guru has readjusted our thoughts on hair removal and reintroduced us to the world of waxing! Doing all of this while simultaneously juggling being a wife, a mother, and kick ass Boss! Kei whose claim to fame was first seen on The Shaderoom (an Urban Instagram News outlet) when word got out that she performs an almost PAINLESS Brazilian Wax in 7 minutes by using her very own Hard Wax she manufactured herself! People quickly started paying attention to what Kei was bringing to an industry often times overlooked. To date Kei has created an awesome hard wax used all around the world by Esthetician's & some non professionals brave enough to try it. She has incorporated her company Pretty Girls Get Waxed, making herself the first black woman to create a waxing chain. With the first location opened in Memphis, Kei is ready to expand and bring Pretty Girls Get Waxed to every city. She has created a sisterhood throughout the Waxing community and shown so many girls why this industry is worth it. What's next for Kei? Classes, Tours, & more locations! Her community has been begging for Classes and mentor ship for years and with her knowledge and experience, she's finally going to give them what they've been asking for. The Esthetics World thanks Kei for teaching us all that Waxing is a not a Luxury, it's a Lifestyle.
INTERVIEW WITH SPA QUEEN MAGAZINE
Kei recently sat down with Spa Queen Magazine to answer 6 questions in 15 minutes.
WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE A CAREER IN THE BEAUTY/SPA INDUSTRY?
I chose my career in the beauty industry because I’m a true girl at heart. I love being a woman. I love looking and feeling good and I believe every woman should feel this way. As a woman, I too have struggled with not loving every inch of my body. I suffered from severe acne as a teen throughout my adult life and it wasn’t until I went to school for esthetics that I learned how to properly treat my skin. Within weeks of Esthetics school I knew I had found my career path. I wasn’t sure exactly what I would be doing but I knew the answer was there.
15 MINUTES WITH KEI
SIGNATURE HARD WAX
She manufactures her own Wax!
After years in the business and listening to clients complain of waxing being painful, Kei knew if she could minimize the pain associated with waxing, she could maximize the amount of people waxing. People with coarser hair seemed to be complaining the most of pain. If there was a wax that was tailored to courser hair but still worked perfectly on softer, thinner hair all clients would be more tolerable and happy about waxing. Kei set out to find the perfect wax for her clientele. Never finding the perfect formula, she decided to create her own. A hard wax that adhere's to the hair and not the skin to provide an ALMOST PAINLESS experience. Her Signature Hard Wax is born!
WHY CHOOSE THIS WAX
You have sensitive skin right?
Getting waxed can be harsh, especially if the wax is. Created with sensitive skin in mind it can be used on the most delicate of skin.
