Bikini Wax Descriptions

  • The Conservative
    • The name says it all. Basically, any hair that could play peek-a-boo outside the swimsuit line is removed. No more, no less.
  • The Risque
    • Not too much, not too little. A step above the Conservative but not quite a Full Brazilian.
  • The Brazilian
    • All hair is removed from front to back. Your choice of removing everything or leaving a patch or strip of hair at the top.

Waxing FAQ

  • Q: How long does the hair need to be before I can get waxed?
    • A: Let the hair grow for at least seven days after shaving. For you shavers this may be even more painful than getting the wax itself. Ideally, the hair should be 1/8th to 1/4th of an inch long.
  • Q: How long until the hair grows back?
    • A: This is a tricky question because when it comes to the hair re-growth cycle, we are not all created equal. Some clients come in every six weeks and have hardly any hair at all (no fair!) while others have to come in every three weeks. The most popular length of time between waxes is four weeks.
  • Q: Will my hair grow back darker and/or thicker?
    • A: No. Waxing pulls the hair from the follicle weakening the root. If anything, it will grow back weaker, sparser, and easier to remove next time.
  • Q: Will my hair ever stop growing back?
    • A: No, but it will become sparser and finer in texture if you wax regularly.
  • Q: Will medication affect my waxing?
    • A: It certainly can! Retinol and Retin-A taken orally or used topically will postpone your ability to wax. You need to be off oral medications for a minimum of 2 weeks before your waxing session. Topical use should be discontinued one week prior to waxing. Blood thinners and some other medications and products thin out the skin making it more likely for you to peel or burn during your waxing session. If you are unsure about any of the medications you are taking ask your doctor or pharmacist before you come in.
  • Q: Can I tan before or after my wax?
    • A: Plan on waiting at least 24 hours after your wax to tan, and DO NOT come in right after a fresh spray tan as the wax will take it off.
  • Q: I have a special occasion coming up and have never been waxed. Are there any special instructions?
    • A: Whether you want a premarital wax or just a vacation ready bikini line, we recommend you plan to have at least two waxes prior to the event. This will ensure you do not have any reactions to the wax before the big day. It also gets the first wax – which is the most uncomfortable – out of the way. The second wax will provide a much smoother, cleaner result with less post-wax tenderness. If you don’t have time to squeeze in two waxing sessions then make your appointment for at least three to four days before your special occasion.
  • Q: Am I too old to get a Brazilian wax?
    • A: Absolutely not! You are never to old, so wax on!
  • Q: What is “Double Dipping?”
    • A: Double dipping is when the technician dips the wax applicator stick back into the wax vat after using it on you or someone else – possibly allowing the spread of bacteria. Each wax applicator stick should be dipped into the wax only once, and then disposed of so that the wax being applied is always sterile. Make sure when you are getting your wax, there is no double dipping and steer clear of those hairy scary spas!
