Meet Our Team

Michelle CroughanHaving first worked in the hair industry I knew that I loved dealing with the public and loved making people feel good about themselves. I went on to study beauty in Coogan Bergin Beauty College and worked in all areas of beauty. My love for waxing encouraged me to complete a lot of extra training in specialized waxing and techniques and I felt that focusing on one area of the industry meant I could become a specialist at the highest standard.

I knew setting up a wax-only studio was a risk at the time, but I believed there was a niche for this and wanted to change the ‘dreaded wax appointment’ into a treatment that people wouldn’t fear. I found that when done correctly using top quality products, fantastic results could be achieved, and so the Studio Wax clientele began to grow. Our loyal customers trust and know that we are the best at our chosen field.

Our obsession with eyebrows started when we launched Threading hair removal in the studio in 2007 and we were the first in Drogheda to offer this to customers. We perfected this skill as well as mastering the art to shaping the eyebrows and we have gained a lot of loyal customers for this service. It is now a signature treatment in Studio Wax and we have built a great reputation for transforming customers eyebrows. Threading also works amazing on all facial hair and is much more gentle to the skin than waxing.

Sugaring Hair removal is an all natural paste and like waxing removes the hair from the root. The difference is it’s 100% organic and is biodegradable! When I first tried it in 2014 I knew it was special. Like threading it dates back to Egyptian times and the results are just amazing. I’m so proud that we not only offer this to our clients, we also teach this to Beauty Therapists and salons.

Although we have added some extra beauty treatments to the Studio since we opened, hair removal is the core of what we do. We want to excel at what we do ensuring our customers get the best service with every visit.

I am very passionate about my work and Studio Wax, I feel so lucky I do what I love every day! The success of the Studio is our amazing team of like minded therapists and we all have the same goals.

Below is our fabulous Studio Wax Team, and we look forward to seeing you in the Studio!
