Christina attended The International School of Skin & Nail care in Atlanta, GA. She discovered that the world of beauty delves deeper than the cosmetic concerns one may have with their skin & she fell in love with the world of wax!
After obtaining her Esthetics license in 2010, Chrystina worked for a Medi-spa where she explored Microdermabrasion & laser hair removal & then ended up at European Wax Centers waxing full time.
After 4 years with EWC in Atlanta, GA, Naperville, IL & Chicago, IL, Chrystina decided to come back to her roots & open Gaia Waxing in Dubuque, IA in 2014.
I grew up in Dubuque and graduated from Hempstead High School in January 2010. Eager to begin my education I moved to Iowa City the next week and started at the University of Iowa. Majoring in both Psychology and Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies. I always knew I wanted to work with people, making them happier, healthier and confident in themselves. I was thrown a curveball with my own health a couple years in; having to take time off of school I worked, lived and started searching for what was going to make me happy. I had always loved makeup, beauty and wild hair. My roots brought me back to Dubuque and I started Capri College Cosmetology in September 2017. School helped me build on things I enjoy and discover other options in the field I quickly learned to love. Graduating from Capri in December 2018 set me where I needed to be. I now enjoy what I do. I have a creative, positive path and the pleasure of helping others feel beautiful and confident.

Q: Does it hurt?
There is some discomfort, but it is never as bad as clients are expecting,The hard wax used only adheres to the hair so there is less of a pull on the skin, which decreases the pain.
Q:How long does the hair have to be for a Wax?
- You need a quarter of an inch to get a clean wax, which equates to 7-10 days with out shaving.
Q:What is the difference between a brazilian & bikini wax?
- Bikini - This covers just inside of where the bikinis would lay, on the inner thigh & across the top of the bikini line
- Brazilian - All of the hair in the front & up the back to the “butt strip”. You also have the option of leaving a strip or triangle, but the labia is waxed
Q: What if i have a piercing down there?
- Not A Problem! Personal piercings will not interfere or cause irritation with the waxing procedure.
Q: How long does the Brazilian wax long before hair starts to grows back?
- It takes between 3-6 weeks to grow back but it grows back much softer and not as thick its different for everyone though so this can vary.
Q: Why is waxing a better option for Men's hair removal?
Skin stays smoother longer when you have unwanted hair removed by a well- trained esthetician. Regrowth is slower & softer, and less irritating than shaving. A smooth body makes your skin look firmer, your muscles more defined, & is inviting to touch.
Q: How can I prevent ingrown hairs after a Wax?
To avoid ingrown hairs, wait 24-48 hours before exfoliating the waxed area. We suggest exfoliating 2-3 times a week for best results. Gaia waxing also offers a full line of exfoliating products , ingrown treatments & skin moisturizers, Click the Products Tab to view more.
