Katie and Rachel are amazing. It was only my second visit. I saw Rachel first time - she’s awesome. I made an appointment with Katie by mistake and she’s also awesomeness. They work fast, smooth, and with precision. Both are very friendly and down to earth. Their space is clean and cute. Also, I love that there is plenty of street parking and it’s free - I think!! I miss my old aesthetician back in Washington, DC - who was the bomb - but these ladies are my new Sac Town “bomb-ettes”. 💜

|| full body waxing || body inclusive || specializing in men’s services || lash lifts || skin brightening + anal bleaching || full body waxer specializing in men's bikini services.

We loved seeing your smiling faces (okay, eyeballs) last week supporting Beehive & other beloved small Sacramento makers & businesses - & we thought, why not give y’all a round two? To that end: IN STORE SHOPPING this SATURDAY, AUGUST 15th 1-4 pm. ⁣

Here’s you can see this weekend:⁣
@thevulvawitch
@foster.goodness
@plant.daddy.co ⁣
@madisontaylorthomas
@growwiththeflowdesigns
@nodesandknots
@moonlitsubstance
@philocalist.handmade
@golden.hour.designs ⁣
@unsaid_ink
@taylornailedit
(more being added)⁣

If you can’t make it out this week but wanna support - a quick share on your story would help us get the word out! So grateful to our beehive fam for championing us in this weird in-between time. Y’all are the real MVPs.

Allow me to reintroduce myself! ⁣

For all the new folx showing up around here: my name is Katie Marks, owner, head waxer & queen mother of Beehive Waxing. When I’m not soothing your ingrowns, I’m hanging out with my partner Matt, my pup babes Gretchen & Roy, and crying to the new Taylor Swift album. ⁣

I can’t welcome you into the space I’ve carefully curated for you just yet, but I’d like you to know a bit about us before you do. I’ve been waxing for 10 years, and throughout those years I gathered my own values about how I wanted to run my own space in the future. As someone who experiences anxiety myself around receiving any new service or procedure, it was important to me to create a consistent, educational place that you could rely on - a safe space away from home where your body, your insecurities, your gender identity, and your whole self was welcome, held & listened to. While I had never vocalized those values before, as I brought on your fave @beehivewaxing_rachel, I started to hear myself put them into words for the first time. As she became empowered in this space and we grew, it became important to me to continue to gather folx into our hive that could be empowered by being here & would act on those same values with their clients. That’s how I chose @taylornailedit, @graceaestheticspc, @beehivewaxing_yvonne & @hannahpaasch. ⁣

I’m so excited to see your faces, to hold you in the warm energy of our space, to provide you with quality services & empower you to feel at home in your body. Everyone who walks through that big green door is not just our client - they’re our friend, and we will care for them as such. Can’t wait to see you.

Hello Beehive family. 

Governor Newsom just shut down all personal care services & hair salons & barbershops, which unfortunately, means US. We know what a challenge it has been to get back into see us & we have been overjoyed to see as many of you daily as we could these past three weeks. With that said, we will be canceling our books on a week by week basis, and will be recording ALL current appointments so that, whenever we are allowed to reopen, we’ll be able to honor the appointments you’ve already set with us. 

Thank you so much in advance for your grace & patience as we navigate this new normal. 

If either you or a family member has been to see us in the past three weeks and tested positive for COVID-19, we’d appreciate hearing from you, just so we can continue to do our best to keep ourselves & all of our Beehive fam safe.

🤍✌🏻

your bodies and minds are in the best hands. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
my beehive babes are an extension of me + my 10 years of waxing experience. i am so proud of both of them. ⁣

rachel is funny + patient. you can always count on her for a good story that makes your appointment a breeze. she is also trained in all men’s bikini services. ⁣

yvonne is so kind + sweet. she’ll give you all the cool mom vibes that everyone needs in their day. she is also our resident esti + loves to chat about everything skin. ⁣

book your appointments with them today! online booking is open 30 days out. *link in bio*

my first two days back have been a rollercoaster. ⁣⁣
but like, the best rollercoaster. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
having a soft opening of just hannah and me has been so great. they are settling into their new job. turns out we are a great f**king team (but duh). i’m slowing working my way into seeing 15-20 clients a day again (wow, i’m exhausted). each of y’all are so excited to see our new space (which is cute in comparison to how anxious y’all are about getting waxed again). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
the space is finally starting to take the shape of my vision board. the real win today was the plant wall getting installed. plants really make the space warmer. every new addition gets the happy dance from hannah and me. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
i’m so ready for a day off but f**kkkkk it! let’s do 3 more full days. 🤍✌🏻⁣⁣

now tell me, what’s your favorite thing about the new location?⁣
⁣⁣

🌕 e m p o w e r e d 🌕⁣

I would like to welcome you to our new location. I did it. I made it through, to the other side. ⁣

Of course I didn’t do this alone. I have so many 𝐑𝐀𝐃 folx around me that helped along the wax. I have cultivated relationships built on trust + mutual respect. Finding humans that not only cheer me on but also lift me up. ⁣

We will continue to foster an environment that is safe for everyone. Beehive is about honoring you, seeing you, + holding space for you. ⁣

Beehive is pro black, pro brown, pro queer, pro trans, pro choice, + pro hoe. We are gender inclusive, body inclusive and will stay steady in our pursuit to normalize normal bodies. We are here to listen + unlearn + empower our hive. 🤍✌🏻🐝

⚡️𝐏𝐫𝐨 𝐓𝐢𝐩 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐲 𝐅𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰 𝗪𝐚𝐱𝐞𝐫𝐬⚡️⁣

I upgraded our wax pots in the new space to double 10lb pots. Aren’t they f**king beautiful?!⁣

I saw this post on @waxbarewax and knew I would never make a mess transferring wax again. ⁣

HELLO FOLKS!!⁣

First off, I want to acknowledge that Beehive has always been and will always be a gender inclusive and safe space for all humxn beings. Full stop. This is something we strive for on a daily basis, and an attribute of everyone who works at Beehive that you can rely on. ⁣

Second, wouldya look at these incredible new stickers we will have at the front desk?! These fabulous pronoun stickers are going to be available for purchase once we open at the new location. They are vinyl, scratch- and weather-proof, and intended for multi- and long-term use. Each pronoun sticker will be $1, or you can buy 2 of each (a set of 6) for $5. ⁣

And last, but definitely NOT LEAST, for each purchase of our new pronoun stickers, Beehive will make a donation to the Gender Health Center, which is a non-profit organization that meets the counseling needs of the entire LGBTQQI+ community, with a focus on providing services for the transgender community specifically. Beehive will be proud to donate 50% of all the pronoun sticker proceeds to the Gender Health Center, as soon as the new location is open, and stickers can be sold to you babes!

INTRODUCING HANNAH (they/them) 😍😍⁣

It gives me intense joy to introduce you to this king! @hannahpaasch will be starting at Beehive as our Front Desk Office Manager, and we are so incredibly lucky to have them on the team! Hannah will be the first person you will see when you check in at the new location, and there is literally no other face I’d rather have greeting you all.⁣

Hannah is an incandescent human, so trying to introduce you to them online isn’t easy, but here we go. They are a self-described baby witch, cold brew queen and cat dad, while also being punk-rock as hell and dedicated to creating the space for all humans to heal. They have BIG Virgo energy, are the physical representation of Beehive’s body positivity mantra and have you seen those baby blues?!⁣

We are truly lucky to have such a radiant humxn helping us with all things operations, and I cannot wait for you to meet them. Thank you all for giving @hannahpaasch a warm Beehive welcome! 🤍✌🏻

First I want to start by saying that we are incredibly grateful for each and every person this email is going to. Beehive would not exist without the support and understanding of each of you, and I know the community we have built together is resilient enough to get through this turbulent time.
Unfortunately, I am sending you another update with some bad news – The state of California has indicated that body waxing is not a service that can be provided at this time. We understood that opening very quickly last week had risks, but the state has decided those risks are not compatible with flattening the curve of COVID-19. We miss all of you an incredible amount, and if it were safe to open, we would be thrilled to provide you the waxing services you booked.
It has been an extremely difficult time being a small business owner during this unprecedented period of global illness, and has been made more emotionally and socially stressful by the on-going and escalating police brutality occurring across this nation. So with that in mind, we thank you for your patience and understanding.
However (and it pains us to say this), if you have scheduled an appointment in June, we will be cancelling that for you immediately. We are sincerely sorry for all of the back and forth we went through to get you an appointment on the books, but we cannot see anyone at this time. This time around we will be handling cancelations differently. We will be taking note of every person’s appointment to rebook in the event that we can re-open our doors.
Moving forward we will be incredibly cautious when it comes to re-opening. As many of you know, we are in the process of opening our new location. It is still to be determined if we will re-open at that location or at X Street when it is finally time. You can expect to hear from us again before a decision is made on that front.
In closing, we just want to reiterate our appreciation for your patience and support during this time. As much as we would LOVE to be able to wax all of you, your safety, our employee’s safety and the overarching health of our community is of utmost importance.

to get the best results on a leg wax, you should be exfoliating your legs often and moisturizing every day! ⁣

Timeline Photos

As we were planning on opening today, we learned the County of Sacramento has made the decision to 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐚 𝐡𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐨𝐧 𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐰𝐚𝐱𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞𝐬. The health and safety of our clients, community and staff has always and will continue to be our main priority. With that being said, we have to 𝐜𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐲. We do not have a date of when we are able to open back up again, but hoping it will be some time this month. ⁣

Even though body waxing is allowed in the state of CA, it is not allowed in Sacramento County. We understand that this is frustrating and confusing, we are in the same boat as you. If you have a future appointment with us in the first two weeks of June, it will be cancelled. 𝗪𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐛𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐫𝐞-𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞 but have left the appointments for the second half of June as is (in hopes that something will change). ⁣

We were so excited to see all of you this week and the upcoming weeks. We appreciate your patience and understanding. This is not the news we wanted to receive or have to give you. ⁣

Beehive misses you all! 🤍✌🏻🌱

Beehive Babes! We miss you and are so looking forward to reuniting with all of you, (hopefully soon)! ⁣

With that said, please understand that I have just come out of one of the hardest professional (and personal) challenges I’ve ever faced. ⁣

There is both a lot of excitement and pressure as we try and open a new location during these unprecedented times. ⁣

We trust that as we transition into this new space our community will be supportive through the changes and expectations we will have in place. Due to loss of revenue, new protocols and policies, things may feel a little different as we move into a new normal! ⁣

Thank you for all your patience as we navigate this new reality. I will continue to do my very best to show up for both my team and clients. ⁣

Your loyalty, support and love for Beehive has gotten me through this wild time and will continue to as we move forward. ⁣

🤍🌿 🐝⁣
