WAXING ETIQUETTE

Please arrive for your treatment clean and smelling sweet.

 

 

HOW LONG DOES THE HAIR NEED TO BE?

Regardless of how you've been removing your hair, you should have at least 4 weeks growth from your last wax and 3 weeks growth from your last shave to get the best results.  If you try to pretend when it's been only a week or two you'll just be wasting your money.  I want you to be happy so bite the bullet and let it grow.

 

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Everyone's different.   In most cases, you will see minimal regrowth during the first 3 weeks, with a noticeable increase after that.  If you usually shave, it can two to three waxes to get rid of early, stubbly growth but after than you'll be as smooth as a baby's bum for much longer.  Continued waxing encourages slower, sparser regrowth but it's not permanent.

 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I BE WAXED?

If you're serious about maintaining that clean and sexy feeling, I recommend that you come in every 4 to 5 weeks.  You may then find that the you will be able to leave longer gaps between your appointments.  But hey !   The choice is yours and I'm certainly not going to lecture you.  

 

WHY GET WAXED?

Men and women from all professions and of all ages get waxed... more than you would ever dream of.   The reasons range from it being cleaner, to it improving their love life as it heightens sensitivity (Ooh Er Missus).

 

BUT I'M A WOOS... HOW DO I KNOW I WON'T WALK IN AS ARTHUR AND CRAWL OUT AS MARTHA?

Trust me!  You may have heard the horror stories about people being ripped to shreds by inexperienced therapists who don't know, nor care what they're doing, but you're in safe hands with me.   I'm an expert waxer and trainer and I use the best wax on the market

 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

In an ideal world we would like you to bring a clean clothes to change into but we know you all lead busy lives.  Please be aware that we use wax and apply soothing lotions and oil to protect your skin and although unlikely, they could stain your clothes, so don't wear anything expensive or that you'd be devestated about ruining.  Clean, inexpensive, casual clothes are best.

 

HOW CAN I MAKE IT MORE COMFORTABLE?

Suck it up buttercup!  If you experience any discomfort, it really is for 2 seconds only as my technique is quick and over before you can say 'I want me mum!!!!!!'   You can help yourself by trimming the hair before your appoinment!  Fact is that the longer the hair is, the more it will hurt.  If you've never been waxed before or you haven't been waxed for months, then just trim what you can (with scissors or clippers) to roughly half an inch (12mm).  You don't have to be exact or stress about it.............it's just better for you.  If you've been removing the hair yourself, you should wait a few weeks before you get waxed as you'll bet a much better result.  FACT:  Shaved hair is much stronger and tougher to remove (and more painful), so step away from the razor.

 

AFTERCARE

For 24 hrs after you've been waxed, avoid sun, deodorant, really hot showers/baths, chlorinated pools, gym/exercise classes, solariums, spas and saunas as these will irritate the skin. Use a dry body brush to exfiliate after two days, then two or three times a week after, but don't go mad as this actually causes ingrown hairs if you're too rough.  Dry brushing is when you take one of those wooden and bristle brushes that you can buy for a few quid from Boots, Superdrug, Body Shop etc.  As you're about to step into the bath or shower and when your skin is dry and the brush is dry, you gently but firmly brush all over the area you get waxed.  In fact it's great to do your whole body.   This is my personal favourite way to exfoliate because it's rough enough to remove dry skin but smooth enough not to scratch the skin.  Then when you step out of the bath/shower and your skin is dripping wet, apply a small amount of baby oil all over the waxed area, then dry yourself with a towel.  You won't feel at all greasy if you do it this way.   Even after all that aftercare some people are just prone to them but prevention is better than cure.

 

SERIOUS STUFF 

If you're having Extreme Waxing, you'll need to get naked from the waist down to get a perfect wax, so you need to leave your modesty at the door.  Asking to leave your underwear on is a bit like going to the hairdressers and asking to leave your hat on.  I'm a waxer and NOTHING ELSE.  There'll be no happy endings and no extra's,  so please don't make yourself look like a complete pervert by saying or doing anything inappropriate.   If you do, I'll have no option other than to tell all the girls in the salon so that they all point and laugh at you as you leave :)

 

MESSAGE TO FELLOW WAXERS

Guys... please don't rip off my site.........whether I trained you or not.   Everything you read on here is out of my mouth, so please be original and write your own stuff.  It's not rocket science and besides, it must be boring for clients to read the same lines on so many sites, ie, 'it's a bit like asking to leave your hat on' and 'leave your modesty at the door' etc etc.  Don't be a sheep, be yourself!  Thanks for understanding.  Baaaaa!!!!!
