How long does my hair growth need to be in order to wax?
Your hair length needs to be at least a 1/4 of an inch or longer. For most people, that usually is about 2-3 weeks of growth.
What kind of preparations should I do before I come in to get waxed?
Please lightly exfoliate the area you would like waxed at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to lift any ingrown hairs. If you are sensitive to waxing, you may want to take ibuprofen 30-60 minutes prior to your waxing service. This may help to reduce any inflammation or discomfort.
I am having my menstrual cycle, can I still get waxed?
Yes, although waxing a week before or during your menstrual cycle may make you a little more sensitive.
Can you wax during pregnancy?
Yes, it is safe during pregnancy to wax, although you may be more sensitive to the wax.
I am using Obagi, Retina-A, Accutane, or antibiotics for my face, is it safe for me to wax?
Unfortunately, it is not safe for you to wax if you are using these medications or skin products but we do offer tweezing.
What do I need to do after my service to maintain my wax til the next time I come in?
Please lightly exfoliate the waxed area 3-4 days after you receive your service and then again 3 to 4 times a week prior to your next service. This will help to prevent any future ingrown hairs. We also recommend our “Get the Bump Outta Here” Ingrown hair serum to be used after exfoliation.
When should I come in for my next waxing appointment?
Typically, depending on your own natural hair growth, you should be ready for your next appointment in 3 1/2 to 4 weeks.
Can I shave the waxed area in between appointments?
We highly recommend that you do not shave the waxed area in between appointments.
