WAXING SAVVY

 

 

WAXING ETIQUETTE

Please arrive for your treatment clean and smelling sweet.

 

HOW LONG DOES THE HAIR NEED TO BE?

For best results, it must be at least 28 days from your last wax, or, at least 21 days since your last shave.  If you try to pretend, I'll know and you'll just be wasting your money because the hair will start growing back straight away and your waxing will hurt.  I want you to be happy so bite the bullet and let it grow.  It doesn't matter if it's long, I'll deal with that for you. 

 

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 take two to three waxes to get rid of early, stubbly growth but after that, 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?

To get into a good pattern, I recommend that you come in every 4 to 5 weeks.  You may then find that you will be able to leave longer gaps between your appointments.  

But hey...if I see you once a year or just before your holidays, no worries...it'll be lovely to see you.  No judgement or lectures here.

 

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, playing sports, and it heightens sensitivity.

 

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 waxers, but you're in safe hands with me.   I'm an expert waxer and trainer. I've developed my own techniques and I use the best wax on the market.

 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

You'll be naked from the waist down, so you decide.  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 devastated about ruining.  Clean, inexpensive, casual clothes are best.

 

HOW CAN I MAKE IT MORE COMFORTABLE?

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!!'    The 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 with scissors, to no shorter than half an inch (12mm).  I'm happy to deal with that for you, so don't worry.  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 the 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 exfoliate 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.  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 tough 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 body 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 ingrown hairs, but prevention is better than cure.

 

SERIOUS STUFF 

If you're having Intimate 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.
