I’m a new client, what’s the first thing I should do?

Welcome! Your in the right place. Take a moment to read through our FAQ page.  Then Book your appointment :)

Why remove hair with wax?

Because waxing makes your skin feel so soft and it lasts much longer than shaving. Some people wax because they feel it is more hygienic. Others wax  to avoid unsigntly and painful razor bumps. Our body releases natural oils and sweat on a daily basis. Our hair can hold on to them as well as the odor they produce. When you remove the hair you can stay cleaner and fresher.

Does waxing hurt?

Every person’s pain tolerance is different. The good thing is that the pain goes away in seconds. We have procedure that minimizes discomfort. By the time you leave your appointment, the pain will be gone and you will be happy and hair free!

How do I prepare for a Brazilian Wax?

A shower is ideal. Hot water opens pores and allows hair to come out easy, making it less painful for you.

Appointments straight after the gym or working out are not pleasant for your technician. We appreciate your kind consideration!

If you cannot shower, please use personal wipes we provide to clean the area that we will be waxing. Please make sure the area is thoroughly clean.

Your hair should be grown out at least two weeks prior to your first Brazilian wax. The longer the better, so don’t trim. This will ensure the best results that will last longer.

It is a good idea to exfoliate your bikini area, very gently, the night before your Brazilian Wax. In fact, you can gently exfoliate your bikini area every day. This helps deter those pesky ingrown hairs and aids in a speedy removal.

How long does the hair have to be?

At least ¼ inch. Translation – if you can pinch your hair and lift your skin without the hair slipping through your fingers, it should be long enough. It usually takes on average of 2 to 3 weeks of growing out your hair to be ready to wax. Some people hate the growing out stage, others don’t mind it – however you may feel, let it grow – IT’S WORTH IT!

When should I not get waxed?

If you have Lupus or AIDS.

If you are in cancer therapy or receiving chemotherapy, or radiation treatment.

If you are taking Rx Accutane, Differin, Retin A, Antibiotics, or taking any medication that may cause sun sensitivity.

You should also avoid waxing while using salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, Obaji products, any harsh exfoliants, or any facial peels.

All these products thin out the skin and will make you more sensitive and likely to burn or peel. You should wait 2-6 weeks depending on how long you have been on the medication before you wax, as we want to make sure the meds are out of your system so you have a pleasant waxing experience. If you are not sure of how you may react from any other prescriptions you are taking, please give us a call, we can help you determine whether you’re able to get waxed.
