Get To Know Our Team!
Kiki Behr is the founder of Behr & Bush Wax and Beauty. She has been a licensed esthetician since 2012 and truly loves what she does. She started Behr & Bush (formerly Behrly There Wax Studio) in 2016. As it grew in demand, she rebranded, expanded her building, and added a team!
Many people ask her how she got into waxing. Honestly, she sort of fell into it. Fun fact: she used to remove her facial hair with packaging tape! Kiki’s mom is a hairdresser but hair was never her forte. One day, while Kiki was doing her friend's makeup before a girl's night out, her friend asked why she didn't attend school for it. It was something she had never seriously asked herself, even after growing up in the industry. She signed up for beauty school that week and it was love at first sight! Kiki loved learning about products, ingredients, and skin care, but most of all she loved waxing!
Once Kiki graduated, she worked in some of Colorado's most popular waxing salons. She decided to open her own business so she can give guests the highest standards of customer service with the utmost focus on efficient and skillful work.
Kiki is a mom to 5 adorable doggies! She’s insane about dogs and all animals. She loves to travel and is a cookbook collector. Her favorite snack is popcorn and she never shies away from a good cocktail! She enjoys making people feel beautiful in their own skin which ultimately lead her to this career. Open and honest, she has a natural gift for putting guests at ease and will be sure to share her expertise. You can be assured that you will leave Behr & Bush feeling happy, confident, and most importantly hair free. Everyone in the shop is sure to continue their education in the industry's latest treatments, products, and trends so that they can continue to pass their knowledge onto you!
Josh Bush joined the team in 2021 and has always been an integral part of the growth of the business. He is Kiki’s husband and they have been together for 10 years. Apparently they didn't see each other enough so now they work together! He was in the Army as a tanker for 8 years and worked his way up to the rank of Sergeant. He was deployed twice to Iraq and is the main reason Kiki got to live in Colorado. He found himself working a ton of odd jobs while working to obtain his bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership.
Josh finally came to the realization that a 9-5 isn’t for him. His energetic, efficient nature was perfect to balance Kiki’s and growing the business is something he loves to work toward. Being married to an esthetician for so long, he is pretty knowledgeable about waxing! He has fallen into his position as owner effortlessly and loves how each day brings something new. He is excited to use his charismatic and invigorating personality to engage with clients on a daily basis. He is a die-hard Bengals fan, so much so that he and Kiki have season tickets so they can go to all the games. Don’t be afraid to ask him about his Bengals tattoo! He is also a lover of all things bourbon/scotch. He and Kiki have fun playing both kickball and flag football in their spare time.
