Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect my skin to be like afterwards?
Most people skin will be slightly red and tender to the touch, some people may develop hives, but all of these side effects are temporary usually only lasting a few hours if that.
Depending on the area you may notice redness lasts a little longer (ex. Bikini waxing can be read for up to 48 hours.) After waxing your pores are open and susceptible to bacteria. So keep that area clean. For 24 hours after waxing you should avoid tanning, unprotected sun exposure, soaking in hot baths, exercising and sexual activity.
How long does my hair have to be?
Most people need about 2-3 weeks of growth for the hair to be long enough to wax. Anything before 2 weeks will most likely be a waste of your time and money.
What kind of wax do you use?
We use a variety of strip and hard waxes that are rosin-based and safe for all skin types.
Can I wax while pregnant?
Go ahead, Momma! However you will be more sensitive, and it’s not uncommon to experience more ingrown hairs during this exciting time.
Do you double dip?
No Way!!! First off…When is it ever acceptable to double dip in life?
We use a new wax stick for every clients!
I have a special event and/or vacation coming up. When should I get waxed?
We recommend you plan in advance and get waxed at least 2 times prior to your upcoming event. This is especially true if you have never been waxed before, or are waxing a new area. This is beneficial so all of your hairs will be in the same growth cycle and also to see how your body reacts.
Other than that 2 days prior will be perfectly fine.
– To maintain smooth skin & avoid ingrown hairs, EXFOLIATE!
– For a more basic solution soak at least 10 min in the bath to soften skin and scrub with our nylon exfoliating gloves ($5).
