About Us

YoggieBear offers a full range of head-to-toe waxing services, body hair trimming, and an array of beautifully handcrafted, organic skincare products and fragrances to help nourish the skin and create delightful aromas in your own home. We focus on providing clients with a comfortable waxing experience with professional aftercare advice and products catered specifically to you. 


YoggieBear History - what makes us different

Company owners, Sean, and Robert created YoggieBear together as a couple. They both felt the current market was lacking in ethically sourced, New-Zealand-made products and waxing studios that cater specifically to males, gender diverse and the rainbow community. With passions for this, Sean and Robert have created YoggieBear to be exactly what Wellington has been waiting for: a safe, comfortable, and relaxing environment to have all your waxing needs taken care of, and the aftercare products to nutrify your skin long afterwards.


 Our studio

Our studio is located in Maungaraki on the western hills of Lower Hutt and directly accessible from SH2 with plenty of off and on-street parking available. 

We have a homely and peaceful environment where our clients can relax amongst plants and artwork prior to or after their appointment, providing a little oasis. 


Sean, Beard, Cosmetic & Personal Care 

Sean James, co-owner of YoggieBear, is the creative mind behind the business. He has a passion for all things fragranced and self-care and has set out to create a range of nourishing skincare, beard care, and fragranced products to help others find a passion for treating themselves too. For Sean, it was important to create a range of products that cater specifically to men in the hope of normalising selfcare across all genders. 


Robert, Business Manager & Waxing Technician

Robert McIlwraith-James, is the main professional waxing technician and second co-owner of YoggieBear. He takes pride in looking sharp and wants to help others feel well-groomed and confident in their appearance. He noticed a big gap in Wellington’s beauty industry where both male and non-cis individuals may feel out of place or under-represented. Robert’s goal is to be the missing piece in that gap and cater his professional waxing services to all body types and genders.
