Shaving removes hair at the surface of the skin, it is a blunt cut and you will have stubble that feels like sand paper the very next day leaving you itchy, uncomfortable and most likely with razor burn. when you shave your hair comes in thicker and stronger.
Waxing removes the whole hair including the root which leaves you hair free for up to two weeks. Even when the hair grows back it is very sparse, fine and soft. After waxing you will not be itchy when it grows back and of course, no razor burn!
A bikini wax removes all hair that is visible outside the bikini line.
A brazilian wax removes all hair top to bottom, front to back (yes, between the cheeks too).
Yes! We are trained professionals and can still wax you if it's that time of month. All we ask is that you freshen up before your appointment and have a fresh cup or tampon in. If you are unable to shower right before your appointment, no worries, you are welcome to use the restroom where we always have feminine wipes stocked. If you are uncomfortable getting waxed, we understand and are happy to reschedule you.
Your hair must be AT LEAST 1/4" long. This length requires 2-3 weeks of growth. If you come to your appointment in less than 2 weeks we will wax what we can but you will likely leave with hair still and you will still be required to pay full price, please plan ahead.
If your hair is longer than 1" you are welcome to trim before your visit. If your hair is too long your wax will be more painful and it also contributes to hair snapping/breaking off instead of pulling out the root. We do not trim for you, please plan ahead.
Yes it will hurt. Is it bearable? Yes! Is it worth it? Absolutely! We do our best to make you comfortable by using an oil barrier to protect your skin and finish with a cooling gel that helps alleviate the pain and calm your skin. You are welcome to take a pain reliever 30-45 minutes before your appointment, we also keep an amazing numbing cream stocked that you can pick up anytime during business hours and apply it 45 minutes before your appointment.
We wax many women with sensitive skin and the results are great. The oil barrier we use will help protect your skin and our cooling gel will help alleviate the trauma associated with waxing.
When you wax regularly your wax will last at least 2 weeks, even at 3 weeks your hair is so minimal you can still get away with wearing a bikini!
We recommend you come every 4-5 weeks. This will ensure all 3 cycles of hair have grown out long enough to be waxed and your wax will last longer. we understand in the summer time it is harder to let it grow, so you can come every 3 weeks if you would like.
Yes, homecare is vital. We recommend exfoliating and moisturizing 2-3 times a week. Our 'Scrub me Luscious exfoliator and RenewU moisturizer are great products you can use on the whole body. A dry brush or exfoliating hand mitt work well too. Please do not use a loofah as they harbor bacteria... something that can be washed thoroughly is best. Exfoliating will remove the dead skin layer allowing your hair to break through easier and help keep ingrown hairs at bay.
*DO NOT shave or tweeze between appointments, this will throw off the hair cycles and will undo the progress we have made in slowing your hair growth
We ask that you please do not bring your kids. We work with hot wax and have sharp tools in our rooms. while you are being waxed you are unable to tend to your kids and we would feel terrible if anything happened. Our lobby area also has too many things that can get broken. We offer day and evening appointments to better help you in choosing a time that will work without having to bring the kids along.
