Whether you are going “all in” with a Brazilian bikini wax or just getting your eyebrows touched up, it is important that you choose an experienced esthetician at a reputable establishment for your hair removal needs. These are some of your most delicate areas and the face you show the world everyday. Why would you trust your skin to just anyone?
Waxing is definitely our expertise. Our estheticians are highly-trained and bring years of experience to the table. Our goal is to make every client happy not only with their service, but with their experience as well. Let’s face it–when it comes to waxing, it’s the destination, not the journey! We do everything we can to make waxing as pleasant as possible!
how long do I have to let my hair grow?
You must let your hair grow in for at least 2 weeks if you have shaved in order to get a good wax. This should be about a half of an inch, but the longer the better! The more follicles/roots we can pull, the cleaner the wax, the longer it is going to last and the happier you are going to be! The “grow out” stage is often the most difficult step, but the longer the hair is, the cleaner the waxing will turn out.
does it hurt?
The pain associated with waxing is highly sensationalized and can be a barrier to some. Of course, our estheticians are sensitive to this and do everything they can to minimize your discomfort. We recommend avoiding caffeine prior to your visit, and scheduling your appointment to avoid your menstrual cycle, as both of these can make you more sensitive.
There are products on the market designed to minimize this discomfort and we carry them at The Wax Bar. Be sure to inquire about them when booking your first appointment as these products need to be applied up to an hour PRIOR to the service.
should I trim my hair?
NO! The longer the better. The longer the hair, the more the wax will adhere, the smoother your skin will become, and the longer the results will last. If your hair needs to be trimmed your esthetician will take care of it as she knows the best length for the procedure.
i am on my cycle can I still get waxed?
what if I am pregnant, can I still get waxed?
can medication affect waxing?
All these products thin out and weaken your skin making 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 medication is 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 beforehand so we can help you determine if you are able to get waxed.
