How long should my hair be before waxing?
Our hot wax can grab hair as short as 2mm in length. Our strip wax can remove hair as short as 4mm. Everyone has a different growth cycle, but we can usually wax areas that have been shaved two weeks earlier. However, with larger parts of the body like arms and legs, we suggest leaving it three weeks before waxing. If the hair is any longer than 2 cm it can increase the discomfort of the experience. It can also cause hair breakage. If the hair is longer than 2 cm, it is advisable to trim before your appointment (we suggest the #2 clipper attachment).
Will it hurt?
Every person has different pain thresholds and experience waxing differently. Many things can influence the discomfort of wax, including fatigue, menstrual cycle, and medication. We're not going to fib. It's not exactly pleasant! However, most people find it becomes much easier with regular waxing as the hairs become thinner, lighter, and sparser.
Our quality waxes and expertly-trained therapists make the waxing experience as pain-free as possible.
How often should I get waxed?
We recommend that clients come in for a wax every 4 to 6 weeks. This varies depending on the individual's hair growth cycle. To make the most of your waxing treatment, it is important to maintain a regular waxing regime. Hairs renew themselves in this time. Irregular waxing treatments means shorter hairs emerging between sessions.
What's the difference between hot wax and strip wax?
Hot wax is spread thickly on the skin and allowed to dry slightly before it is gently peeled away. This method is far less painful than most and pulls hair directly from the roots. The benefits include fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage, and therefore longer re-growth periods. This wax also promotes skin hydration and is highly recommended for sensitive areas.
Strip wax is recommended for thicker/less sensitive skin, like legs, arms, back, chest, and shoulders. A thin layer of wax is applied to the skin and is then removed using a paper strip.
Will a Brazilian be uncomfortable afterwards?
Our treatments should leave you with minimal discomfort because we use very high-quality wax and have highly skilled therapists. When the treatment is finished, the therapist will ensure no wax or residue has been left on the skin. Since we use hot wax, the skin will not be sticky (as can happen with strip wax).
