Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Our trained esthetician(s) use proven and effective techniques to make sure your wax experience is as painless as possible. Of course, you may experience a little discomfort depending on the thickness of your hair, sensitivity, and area of the body being waxed. However, once you start waxing on a regular basis, your hair thins out, making it much easier and less painful to remove. After just a few sessions, you’ll be surprised how much faster and gentler the process becomes.
How long does the hair have to be?
Hair must be about 1/2inch in length…generally about 2-3 weeks of growth in order to get the best and smoothest result.
How long before the hair grows back?
Truthfully, there is no exact answer that applies to everyone because your hair can grow back at different lengths, rates and cycles depending on the person. Many factors play a part in the growth of an individual’s hair. On average, you’ll notice regrowth in 3-5 weeks.
How often should I wax?
We suggest getting on a regular schedule of anywhere between 4-6 weeks, depending on the area being waxed.
What is the difference between a Brazilian and a Bikini?
A Brazilian wax is the removal of all the hair in your private regions-this includes the labia and peri-anal areas as well. At your request, we can provide you a variation of the 2 or our Modified Brazilian wax leaving some hair on the top mound. (i.e. A landing strip). A bikini wax is the removal of any hair that would be visible outside the lines of a swimsuit or underwear.
What area of my body are waxable?
We provide full body waxing services from Eyebrows to Brazilians and anywhere in between. We are happy to answer any specific questions or address any concerns you may have. Just ask!
Who should wax?
Being well maintained is a great confidence booster-That’s why any and everyone-men and women of any age can wax. We will need parental consent for anyone under the age of 16. Brazilian waxing is even safe for pregnant women. You will be asked to fill out a consent form prior to your service so we can be aware of any medical concerns, sensitivities, allergies, or contraindications.
How do I prepare for my spray tan?
Come freshly showered if possible, with no lotion or oil on your skin. This will create a barrier and the tanning solution will not adhere to the skin as well. If you shave, do so the day of your appointment. If you shave after the tan is applied, it will come off with the razor.
How long does the tan last?
Tan will last usually 7-10 days. Applying lotion daily and keeping it hydrated after day 1 with help the tan last longer.
What do I wear?
Wear light, loose fitting clothing to your appointment or bring some to at least go home in if you’re coming from work. A Maxi dress or bathing suit coverup is ideal. NO Yoga pants, sports bras, or athletic wear. Nothing that is tight to the skin.
While your tan is applied, you can wear anything you are comfortable with. An old bra and/or underwear. Dark colored swimsuit or bikini. I recommend you wear at least a thong or something minimal so you can see immediately how dark your tan will become with the contrast of your skin prior to the tan application. If you really hate tan lines you can go nude.
How long until I can shower after the tan is applied?
Please refrain from showering or getting your skin wet for at least 8-10 hours after a traditional spray tan, but as soon as 1 hour after a rapid spray tan. We will discuss a specific rinse time before you leave your appointment. No exercising or sweating while your tan is processing.
What happens if it gets on my clothes?
The solution easily washes out of clothing and bed sheets.
