Vision Statement

To do everything with the belief that we are all connected... that in every human interaction, we have the power to create an extraordinary world.

What You Can Expect

Come in from the scramble and dash of your day.


You’ll immediately be met by the welcoming scent of lemongrass and eucalyptus. Ahh..

Beverage!? We got ya covered. (Wine!? Bottomless mimosa!? If you’re lucky, Roeland might even be serving up his Mint Juleps!) Now, we’re talking.


Check in, chill out, join in the laughter and warm conversation that fills our space. Yes, please!


Whether you’re one of our beloved regulars, or just stopping in for your first treatment, you’ll be greeted and treated with respect. Our master estheticians are efficient yet never rushed.

You’ll be cared for, listened to, and pampered like a treasured guest—because you are.

You might notice that we lavish generous attention on the details large and small—from the clean, gorgeous linens that line our treatment beds; to the chocolate on your pillow; to the complimentary hand massage when your session ends early—or...you might just close your eyes, lean back, and bliss out.


We’re committed to elevated care that caters to all of your senses. 


When you leave, we want you to feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to face the day.

Our Founders

Tawnya Fornerod

Boss Lady

I believe that beauty is a channel for connection, community, and care.


I came to my profession as a young mom living in North Carolina. I had been studying horticulture, planning for a future of gardens and landscapes. Yet, I found myself in a salon one afternoon, getting my hair done. I don’t remember my haircut, but I absolutely remember the vibe of that place. It was so alive, and so affirming, that it propelled me to shift career paths and begin this wonderous, winding journey.


I’ve found that esthetics is so much more than skin deep. It is a vehicle to engage with people on a soul level.


For me, it’s been a means to support myself and my children. It’s been a means to step into my role as a leader and business owner. And it’s also been a means to create long-lasting connections — with clients who become community; colleagues who become family.

Wax & Lash is my home away from home, my deepest passion, and the place I feel most seen. It has pushed me to grow as a woman, a mother, a wife, a business owner, and a boss.


I am ever grateful for this vehicle to live my values and contribute to a more beautiful world.  

Roeland Fornerod

Boss Man

Every time I come into the shop, I feel like I’m coming home. It’s as close to perfect as possible.


You’ll often find me at the front of the house when you come into Wax & Lash, pouring our signature peach mimosas and sharing a laugh with whoever is relaxing in the waiting area.


There is always an opportunity to make someone’s day better, and I view that as my number one priority here.


You probably noticed that I’m one of the only men with a team of amazing women. I’m honored to be in such brilliant company. I am consistently humbled and inspired by these confident, inspiring women who shine their light in the world. Through the conversations I’ve been privileged to have with our colleagues and clients, I’ve also seen that across any difference there are always commonalities—in the things that worry us, that we have insecurities about, get excited about, laugh about. Finding those connections is the highlight of my day.


I am so thankful that my personal and professional trajectory has twisted and turned and brought me here.
