Our Story

Bare Necessity Wax & Spa is locally owned and operated by Amy and Jason Koob who have a mutual vision to offer a nonparallel experience to their clients. The original location in Gilbert, Arizona was founded in 2010 after Amy and Jason relocated from Tucson for Jason’s previous job. Amy quickly fell in love with Gilbert and decided it was the perfect place to establish the first Bare Necessity Wax & Spa.

Their pursuit and passion to bring high quality, personable yet affordable experience to each of their clients quickly grew into something special, inspiring them to open a second location in Tucson. As a result, the city of Tucson will now have access to a spa experience with the same level of excellence that the community of Gilbert voted ‘Best Holistic Skincare Spa’ in the East Valley Tribune. Likewise, the Koobs feel blessed to be able to provide their services for the two cities they love and consider home. Whether it’s one of their clients or their employees, they take pride in making everyone feel special. Feel free to pop in and meet them for yourself!

null Have been coming here for almost 2 years and now I won't let anyone buy Rachel F touch my brows. I also go to her for facials and dermaplaining. With the extreme heat of AZ, it's a must getting your skin hydrated and taken care of regularly. Highly recommend all their services and the staff is truly amazing! null

null Elaine is amazing. Have been going to her for Brazilian wax and hope she never leaves. So personable and makes you feel so comfortable. The front desk people are great too & always so friendly. Really like this place a lot. It's a must try!!! null

null Just moved to the area and was very nervous about making an appointment in at a new place. I had a wax scheduled with Korina and she was amazing! She made the experience less painful and awkward--I even scheduled an appointment for next month. I already recommended this location to a friend and I just left an hour ago. null

null I love this spa! Abbey is very knowledgeable and listens carefully to my concerns. She customizes my facial treatments for my sensitive skin and makes it feel amazing! Abbey does the BEST brow wax too. null

null Great staff! I always have such a nice experience every time I go in for a treatment. I got a mini facial with dermaplaning this time and it was amazing! Breanna did a great job! My face feels so soft! null

null Taylor does an AMAZING job. So far I’ve gotten my eyebrows tinted and waxed, under arms waxed, and full legs waxed by Taylor. My eyebrows are on point! I would recommend Taylor to anyone. null

Katie V


null I travel 45 minutes to see Amy to wax my eyebrows. Not only is she very personable, shes a wax queen! I have never had eyebrows so nicely shaped before. Well worth the drive null

Stephania V


null I don't hand out very many five stars even for places I love. This is definitely five star and they deserve the rating they get.
If I could give them more I definitely would.
The staff is incredibly kind and gentle, able to carry on a good conversation while they're quick but thorough in their services null

null What a great place! Love that it's a mom and pop shop and not a chain. Just a lovely salon with very friendly and sweet employees. Bree did an excellent job and I'll be back! Highly recommend! null

null This place is AMAZING, I never really go out of my way to write reviews but my experience was just really good, my first time ever going to a spa to get a facial and Abbey was amazing, she was so nice and informative on what she was doing to my face. Everyone's nice and overall a relaxing and warm vibe. 10/10 recommend null

Taylor M


null Eileen is my girl and she's the best! Sometimes I find it hard to engage in small talk but it comes out effortlessly with Elaine. I've gone about 5 times now in a row and each time it's less and less painful! They always offer water and the atmosphere is so calming. I'll always recommend this fine establishment! null

null This place is simply AMAZING! It’s super nice, the staff is friendly, prices are really good and most important: They really care about their clients! Forget about other places, this is the right place to go!!! null

null Breanna is amazing at what she does! I have had bad experiences with waxing and now that I have come here I will not go anywhere else. She was very knowledgeable and has a great personality. She listened to what I wanted with my brows and I couldn't be more happy with the results. I highly recommend coming here! null

Rachel R


null Loved every bit of this place! You can tell the employees like their jobs and the “champagne” wax is so fun. null

Camilla D


null Found this place on yelp. I moved from Texas where I used EWC religiously but wanted to try something local. Not disappointed. I chose Korina based on her reviews here and on their website because I needed someone GOOD for my Brazilian. I wasn't disappointed. Conversation is always a bit awkward but she kept me distracted and did a great job. Booked my next appointment with her before leaving the building. null
