THE HOTWAX TEAM

Rebecca

Owner

Rebecca Ostroski, the visionary owner of HOTWAX Baltimore, has made a remarkable impact in the waxing and skincare industry. Rebecca’s journey began nearly 10 years ago when she launched HOTWAX Baltimore in a modest back room of a hair salon.

Drawing on her background in PR, Rebecca recognized the need for a modern skincare studio that the city was lacking at the time. Her goal was clear but bold – to offer clients a flawless, easy journey from the moment they book to the point of checkout, while delivering top-notch services!

With an unwavering commitment to excellence, she has not only transformed the waxing industry through years of hard work but also trained and inspired numerous women in Maryland to start their own businesses. The HOTWAX brand is unmatched and is growing with two locations in Maryland and one in Delaware!

At HOTWAX, every client is treated like the most important client of the day. Rebecca and her team go above and beyond to ensure each client feels comfortable throughout the entire process. Their energizing and magnetic approach has earned them a reputation as more than just a waxing studio. With a customer-first mindset, HOTWAX provides exceptional service at a good price point, making them the new fast-casual day spa.

Rebecca’s meticulous standards extend to the cleanliness and hygiene protocols of HOTWAX. With separate treatment rooms and a robust inventory system, they prioritize both privacy and safety, especially in today’s pandemic landscape. Each visit is crafted to be as special as the first, ensuring a consistent and extraordinary experience for every client.

Rebecca’s advice to clients and passersby is to embrace what makes them unique and forge their own path towards self-confidence. At HOTWAX, they are passionate about helping individuals shine in their own remarkable way.

Ashley

Esthetician

Hello, everyone! I’m Ashley, a passionate esthetician with 5 years of experience. I’ve had the pleasure of working at European Wax Center and Doll Wax Salon, where I honed my skills and developed a deep love for what I do. Making people feel amazing about themselves from all walks of life is what truly drives me in the beauty industry.

In my free time, I indulge in my passion for cooking (and yes, I enjoy eating too!). Music is another love of mine, with jazz being one of my favorites to listen to. As a proud mother, I cherish every moment with my two beautiful sons, Dawsyn (2) and Destyn (7 months). We share countless laughs, sing along to music, and embrace the beauty of nature together.

Adding to our family, we have two adorable fur babies named “Harley-Quinn” (a French Bulldog) and “Mama” (a Shorkie). They bring even more joy and laughter to our lives. I’m a laid-back and approachable person, always ready for a friendly conversation. Meeting new people is something I genuinely enjoy.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and help you feel your best. Hope to see you soon!
