Waxing etiquette

Waxing is an intimate beauty procedure, no matter what body area you may have treated. Understanding the proper waxing etiquette and communicating with me will help you feel more comfortable about waxing so you can feel confident and beautiful with the results.

Waxing is a popular hair removal technique for any body part with unwanted hair, including the underarms, legs, eyebrows, and bikini area. Regardless of which area will be waxed, however, the same etiquette guidelines apply. 

During your appointment, follow the instructions, I will let you know when it is time to remove clothing, when to lay on the treatment table, and what you should do to help the procedure go more smoothly.

If you have questions about the procedure, don't be afraid to ask. I will be more than happy to explain what to expect, how the different steps of the process will work, and how it will feel.

It’s common for women to have neglected their bikini area for a long time before a wax. Don’t feel like you must trim before coming in – I’ll do that for you. However, for maximum effect you need to wait 3 weeks from your last shave or 4 weeks from your last wax. Ideally you need at least a quarter of an inch growth, abouth the length of an eyelash.

It's key to exfoliate in the shower the morning before a bikini wax, otherwise you're more likely to get ingrown hairs. 

Make sure you are clean. A lot of clients rush to their appointments straight from work so might not be as fresh as they could be. I will provide baby wipes to freshen up before a wax.  

Booking a wax while you’re on your period is perfectly acceptable if you’re wearing a tampon. But be aware your skin will be more tender and the treatment will be more uncomfortable at that time. 

A Brazilian/Holllywood will entail you being naked from the waist down. Your dignity will be maintained as much as possible.
