Are you tired of shaving? Are you considering having waxing treatment? Here are a few commonly asked questions and answers to help you make your decision.
How long does my hair need to be for waxing to be successful?
Your hair should be about ¼ inch long so the wax can successfully attach to the hair. It takes about three to four weeks of no shaving to achieve this length. If you come in too soon after shaving, you may not achieve optimal results.
Can I wax while on my period?
Yes, you can. However, you should know that you may be more sensitive and may experience more discomfort than usual. Please wear a fresh tampon when you come in for your appointment. You may want to take a few Advil before your appointment.
Does it hurt?
Waxing involves pulling hair out of the follicles, so yes, it is uncomfortable. However, you are in the hands of experienced estheticians who can make the process only slightly unpleasant. Waxing can be a little more uncomfortable if you are overly tired or are feeling sick. If at any point, you feel like you can’t handle the procedure, let us know and we can stop or give you a break. We are here to make this as pleasant an experience as possible.
There is a special occasion coming up and I have never waxed. How should I prepare?
We recommend that you have at least two waxes before the occasion. This will get the first, uncomfortable wax out of the way. The second wax has a much smoother, cleaner result with less tenderness after. If you don’t have time for two waxing appointments, try to wax at least three or four days before the occasion.
