Q: How often should I get waxed?
A: We recommend a general timeframe of 2-5 weeks between waxing appointments. Frequency varies depending upon the area:
Bikini and Brazilian: 3-4 Weeks (5 Weeks Max)
Face and Underarms: 2-3 Weeks
Arms, Legs, and Others: 4-5 Weeks
You will obtain the best results if you stay on a consistent waxing schedule and avoid shaving or trimming in between!
Q: What should I wear to my waxing appointment?
A: For arm or underarm waxing, wear a tank top. If it’s cold outside, you can add a loose shirt on top. For leg waxing, a dress or sweatpants are best as you don’t want anything tight! For bikini waxing, please wear cotton underwear so it can breathe after and either a dress or sweatpants to allow for air movement!
Q: How soon should I see hair come back? Does it come back the same?
A: For a facial wax, you should see hair start to return in about a week. For body waxing, hair in some areas may return in less than a week. But after a consistent waxing schedule, you will be able to go longer before seeing hair! Over time, the hair will also get finer and thinner.
Q: What kind of reaction could I expect after waxing? (Breakout, redness, etc.) How long will it last?
A: Reactions vary from person to person. Most customers experience mild redness after waxing due to inflammation that will go away within 12 hours on its own. Some clients with more sensitive skin may experience breakouts. If you have concerns with a reaction you’re experiencing post-waxing, reach out to your esthetician!
Q: What’s the difference between soft wax, hard wax, and sugaring?
A: Hard wax is more gentle on the skin and is more suitable for sensitive areas, like the face, armpit, and Brazilian regions. Soft wax is easier to work with since it does not harden as quickly making it the best wax choice for larger and less sensitive areas like the legs, arms, and back regions. Sugaring uses a paste that is worked into your follicle to seep down and coat the hair in order to remove it.
Q: Is there anything I should avoid if I plan on getting waxed regularly?
A: We recommend avoiding shaving, trimming, or using hair removal products on areas you plan on waxing. Additionally, there are certain medications that have contradictions with waxing. If you are taking medication, please notify your esthetician at the beginning of your appointment to mitigate any concerns and risks.
Q: How can I decrease ingrown hair growth?
A: We cannot recommend regular exfoliation enough. Exfoliation will remove any dead skin cells and decrease clogged pores and ingrown hairs. We recommend exfoliating before and after waxing on a regular basis for the best results. If you need a product recommendation, ask your esthetician!
Q: Will waxing stop my natural hair growth over time?
A: No. While waxing can decrease the amount of hair present, it will not change your natural hair thickness or rate of growth. Results will vary between individuals.
