Who can wax?
Pretty much anyone; however we require at least 18 years of age or having a legal guardian present for any services.
How long should my hair be?
At least a quarter inch and no longer than 1/2 inch.
What do I do after the wax?
Keeping your waxed area as dry and cool as you can after a service is imperative. Avoid heavy sweating, intense humidity, tight-fitting clothing, or heavy creams or lotions for at least 24 hours. Although very rare, some may experience welting. If this occurs, hydrocortisone will work to reduce the histamine. This should be a very temporary outcome and clear up shortly.
Doesn’t waxing hurt A LOT?
Yes. Waxing can be a little uncomfortable; especially your first time but here are a few great tips to help you prep for your wax and minimize the pain. Exfoliating the morning of your wax helps prep the skin and loosen any skin cells holding on extra tight to that hair root. A lot of guests like to take an over the counter medication such as Tylenol or IB Profen. *please make sure to consult your medical provider before taking any medication. Regular waxing makes the BIGGEST difference in waxing comfort and results, so make sure to ask about our regular waxers discount! Unfortunately numbing sprays or topical creams don’t work for waxing and can actually make the service harder to perform.
How often should I wax?
Ideally waxing is every four to six weeks depending on your hair growth. Talk to your esthetician about what timing works best for you.
Can I wax while on my period?
Yes, in fact several clients do. Don’t worry you won’t be the only one! We do ask that special attention is paid to hygiene and a tampon is in place. Please let your esthetician know if you are on your period before your service begins. If you have an appointment and would prefer to wait until your cycle is over, just give us a call and we are happy to reschedule you!
