Local residents will have yet another waxing option come springtime.
European Wax Center, which promotes itself as offering the ultimate experience, has plans to open a location at The Avenue Murfreesboro by March 2013, according to the company’s website.
The waxing salon currently has two Tennessee locations – one in east Memphis and another in Nashville – and offers a variety of waxing services for both men and women.
European Wax Center features a four-step process designed to cleanse, protect, wax and rejuvenate the skin.
“The moment you walk into European Wax Center you’ll experience a luxurious facility that brings together the ultimate experience in waxing services and guest appreciation,” according to a company press release. “If you have not yet tried European Wax Center, we invite you to try our services with a complimentary service.”
The company offers women a free eyebrow, under arm, or bikini line wax, and men can take advantage of a free eyebrow, ear, or nose wax.

Boutiques selling bras for cancer research
Trendy Pieces and Bella’s Boutique in downtown Murfreesboro are participating in the annual Bras for a Cause, a fundraiser for cancer research sponsored by Penny’s Closet.
The shops’ creation is modeled after owner Judy Goldie’s two Dalmatians, Spot and Speckles. Shoppers are encouraged to give a minimum of $10, and for each $10 donated, they will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to be used at Trendy Pieces or Bella’s Boutique.
“This is breast cancer awareness month, and we want to do our part to raise money for this amazing cause,” Goldie said. “The Cancer Research Institute not only researches for breast cancer, but all cancer.”
Stop by the shop, located on Murfreesboro’s historic Square, to see the Spot and Speckles bra and give a donation.
