Frequently Asked Questions
Waxing removes the hair from the root, unlike shaving. Shaving cuts the hair off at skin level. If you pull out the root with waxing it will take much longer for the hair to grow back.
What's the best way to prepare for an appointment?
Be sure you have at least a 1/4 inch of hair growth & 1/2 inch for course hair. That is about a week to 2 weeks of hair growth after shaving. Exfoliating with a loofah or exfoliating gloves the day before waxing is suggested for less pain at the appointment. If it’s your first time please let us know and we will walk you through every step at the appointment.
What should I expect from a waxing appointment?
Hairless skin! Everyone’s skin reacts differently to waxing, typically you can expect to have temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or two. Try to avoid heavy exercise that will increase perspiration and chaffing for about 24-48 hours after waxing.
How long does waxing take?
This depends on what you are getting waxed, and how much hair is present. An appointment can take from about 15-20 minutes (eye brows) to an hour or more (several areas).
Will waxing hurt?
The pain associated with waxing differs from person to person and their genetic makeup. One person may have several nerve endings in one area, while another may not. If you have sensitive skin, remember that any pain is very minor and very temporary.
