Waxing 101

For your interest, we’ve compiled some of our esthetician’s suggestions on how to make your waxing experience that much better. Or, as we like to call it… WAXING 101.

  • Give yourself time: Do not wax a day (or even hours) before something important where that area will be shown off - if you experience an adverse reaction everyone's going to know! Although our estheticians are skilled and provide the gentlest service possible, everyone is different and it is important to allow your skin time to reset itself and to calm down - especially if you've never done it before!
  • If you've shaved previously: For all you shavers out there... let your hair grow out for approximately three weeks before coming for your first wax! This ensures it is long enough to have a hassle-free experience.
  • Exfoliate: At least 24 hours before your appointment, gently exfoliate the area you'll be getting waxed.  Avoid doing this the day of, as it can lead to excess irritation. After your appointment, wear loose, breathable clothing for 24 hours to allow your skin to breathe. Then, gently exfoliate again - we recommend either a Merben Body Brush or an Archipelago Sugar Scrub.
  • Hydrate and soothe:  Staying hydrated and keeping your skin moisturized will help with pre and post wax maintenance. As with exfoliation, moisturize 24 hours before your appointment, but avoid it directly before as the wax won't take as well if you have lotion on. For full pubic hydration and softening, we recommend Fur Oil. If you are prone to or experience red bumps and irriation, Fur products are perfect for you - ask your esthetician for more information!
  • Prebook:  Stay on a regular wax routine, generally every 4 - 6 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. Do not shave or pick at your skin in between! If you're on a routine, your hair generally comes back finer and less frequently, naturally helping your wax last longer.

And remember what happens in the wax room, stays in the wax room!

As our guest, we know that you want to look your best. Hair, nails, brows and lashes are all outward appearing things, and thus an obvious selection. But what about other places: Your downstairs, back or chest, under arm, or arms and legs.
