Precautions & Considerations

  • The first question everyone wants to know is how long should my hair be for waxing? If this is your first time waxing I would recommend a 1/2 inch for best results. Since the hair grows in different stages (anagen, catagen, telogen) it will take at least 3 wax treatments in order to get on a waxing pattern.
  • This brings me to the next question everyone asks, how often should I get waxed? Every 4 weeks is the general rule however face waxing such as brows and lip could be every 2 weeks. Waxing is something that should be maintained all year long in order to achieve maximum results. Over time you will experience less hair growth, the hair will become finer, softer, and the hairs will come out more easily.
  • Since everyone's skin reacts differently to waxing treatments be prepared you could experience temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or so.
  • I can not stress the importance of proper post-wax care! Waxing removes the entire hair and root from the follicle. Your skin naturally thickens over the area that was waxed creating dead dry skin. In order to prevent ingrown hairs it is important to keep the area gently exfoliated and hydrated. I do not recommend always using what you have at home for your post-waxing care since the ingredients may not be formulated for waxing. I also can not stand behind your waxing treatment when your home care makes up 95% of your results.
  • can I shave between waxing appointments? NO! Shaving will disrupt the hair growth cycle resulting in more hair at your next appointment, not to mention it will feel like your first wax all over again. We all know how much you NEVER forget that experience!

 

Running more the 5 minutes late for your appointment could result in having to reschedule.
