What kind of waxing can I have done?
You can have anything from facial to Brazilian and bikini waxing, full legs, arms
What are the advantages of waxing?
When hair is removed via waxing, the full hair is pulled out at the root. When it grows back, it is softer. When you shave, the hair is cut off at the level of the skin, so as it grows out, it is thicker and stiff. You are more likely to have in-grown hair with shaving. If you wax on a regular basis (every 4 to 5 weeks), the hair will start growing back on the same growth cycle, so after about 3 months, you will have longer periods of "hairlessness".
How long should I wait between waxing appointments?
I recommend coming in every 4 weeks. If you keep your appointments at 4 week intervals, the charge will be less because the appointment will take less time. The hair must be at least 1/4 inch long to wax. Do not shave or trim
How much do you charge for a Brazilian Wax?
Average price on the first Brazilian wax is $50. If this is your first Brazilian, please trim the hair back to 1/2 inch in length before coming in.
What do I wear during my Brazilian waxing session?
You will be asked to remove all your clothing from the waist down.. Underwear gets in the way, and we can't do a thorough job with clothing on. Our rooms are completely private.
I am a plus-sized person. Am I going to be embarrassed or feel awkward?
Absolutely not ! Most of our clients are "real" people, and come in all sizes and shapes.
General Information for Women:
Limit caffeine for several hours prior to appointment. Clients who normally take Ibuprofen for pain may find this helpful 30 minutes prior to treatment. Some people feel that taking antacids (Tums) prior to their appointment also helps. Hair should be at least 1/4 inch long for waxing. Again, if this is your first Brazilian, trim hair back to 1/2 inch before coming in.
Just so you know, waxing immediately before and during your period will be more painful. I recommend you schedule your appointment at least one week prior to your period, or once your period is completed each month.
If you are wanting a Brazilian wax, and just HAVE to be waxed during this time, that's ok too. It's your choice and we have no problem with Brazilian waxing while you are on your period. Just wear a tampon and let us know ahead of time. Of course it's your call how much or how little hair you wish to have removed.
Women ask if Brazilian waxing hurts. Well, yes, a little, especially the first time. I have heard another esthetician describe it similar to pulling a band aide off. It hurts for a second, but is quick and the pain leaves as fast as it comes. Again, if you trim the hair back to around 1/2 inch before coming in, it doesn't pull as much, and helps for that first visit. Most of my clients tell me the results far outweigh the pain encountered during the service. It also seems that on some people, after having the service done several times at 4 week intervals, it just doesn't hurt as much. Is the hair releasing easier, or are they just getting used to it?
We have evening appointments available too if you need to come in after work.
