Waxing Tips

  • Allow your hair to grow. The hair needs to be at least 1/4 of an inch long which typically takes two to three weeks of growth. I know that may seem crazy but the longer the hair, the better the results.

  • Exfoliate your skin. One of my favorite ways to do so is with a spa glove which can be found at your local Target, CVS, etc. gentle exfoliators are acceptable but please make sure they are GENTLE.

  • Moisturize your skin leading up to your appointment especially during dry months. We recommend not putting moisturizer on the day of your appointment but beforehand is great!

We do offer a numbing spray for those who would like to take a bit of the edge off. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to spray. 

  • Taking ibuprofen beforehand is always helpful.

  • Please stay away from caffeine before your appointment as this does awaken the nervous system and can make your wax more painful.

  • Waxing during your menstrual cycle is not a problem as long as a tampon is worn. Just note that you may be a tad bit more sensitive but we do understand that sometimes Aunt Flo’s visit can’t be predicted and often comes at the most inconvenient times.

  • Please obstain from using retinoids 2-3 days prior to waxing as these can cause skin sensitivities and irritation.
