hether this is your first time, "it's been a while", or you're a seasoned pro you can relax and feel confident that you are in good hands. For newbies the hard part is over, you've done your homework and chosen a highly experienced professional. The anticipation of the experience is much worse than the very brief sensation of the hair being removed. Most women actually remark after the service, "that wasn't bad at all!"
How long should my hair be? If you are growing out from shaving we recommend 2-3 weeks of growth (approx 1/4" if you're good at measurements), the longer the better. We can trim if necessary
What other preparations can I make prior to my service? We recommend gently exfoliating the area before your appointment. And no extreme heat (sunbathing, saunas, etc.) 24 hrs before or after (this includes vigorous workouts).
What kind of wax do you use? Our predominant wax of choice is a high quality, high performing hard wax. We prefer hard wax in most areas because it's better for sensitive skin. Why? Hard wax melts at a lower temperature and is thicker and more "waxy" compared to the sticky substance that is strip wax. Therefore it wraps around and grabs hair without sticking too much to the skin. This reduces the incidence of injury to the skin thus making it a less painful experience. That being said we do prefer strip wax for hardier areas of the body such as the legs and arms.
Is it painful? If not done properly and with lack of experience hair removal can be seriously uncomfortable (we've all heard horror stories). When done correctly however you can expect very brief discomfort (when we pull the wax) that quickly dissipates. For peace of mind you can take an anti-inflammatory or pain reliever 30 min prior to your appointment.
