How long do I have to wait before my first wax? To get the best waxing results, we need your hair to be at least one-fourth of an inch long. This is an average of 2 weeks of growth.
What is the difference between getting waxed here or just going to the Nail Salon? Waxing falls under Skincare and not Nail Care. Getting waxed at a nail salon is a poor way of taking care of your skin. It may be quicker + cheaper, but keep in mind your skin and your health are with you for the rest of your life. A licensed esthetician has been trained + certified to perform waxing.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for waxing and to be comfortable? Schedule your waxing service the first 2 weeks after your cycle. Your sensitivity level is a lot less during this time. Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these can stimulate, making you more sensitive and increase redness after waxing. Pregnancy also increases sensitivity.
How long will my skin stay red? It depends on the person and the skin type. For most people the redness is mostly gone after 30 to 60 minutes to an hour. I treat the skin immediately after reducing the chances of red skin.
How long does the hair have to be in order to wax? Hair should be about ¼ inch long for all bikini and body services. A good way to test this is to see if your hair covers at least half of your pinky fingernail.
How long will it take for my hair to grow back? Clients typically schedule appointments on a 3 to 6 week basis for all body waxing services. All hair types are different, but as you wax, each time your hair tends to get thinner, lighter and much more soft equaling in less visits.
Should I trim my hair before coming in? Please don't. The longer the hair, the easier it will be for the wax to grab on to it.
Can I wax on my period? Yes! I suggest that you wear a tampon during the service. You may be a little more sensitive, but if you’re worried about "gushing" don’t worry, if you don’t care, I definitely don’t care.
Can you wax ‘mature’ skin? Yes. However, we are unable to wax if clients are on certain medications or anti-wrinkle/anti-aging creams. These creams contain ingredients that make your skin “lift” which almost looks like a little burn mark. Ingredients in these products are retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids, tretinoin, bleaching agents like hydroquinone.
Do a lot of males come in for waxing? Yes. I offer brow and body waxing for male clients, except for Bikini + Brazilian. I can refer you to someone who does Brazilian for men.
What should I do in between appointments? Exfoliate! To ensure your next wax is smoother and prevent ingrown hairs, we suggest exfoliating every day in the shower. By doing this, dead skin and oils are removed from the surface of the skin so the hair is able to grow back evenly with minimal irritation.
Should I tweeze or shave in between waxes? Please don't. I strongly advise you not to shave in between visits because shaving disrupts the hair growth and will make your next wax more uncomfortable. Please stay away from the razor!
