Waxing Advice

What should I do BEFORE a wax?

Let the therapist know before your appointment if you have any allergies, health conditions, or are taking any medication such as Accutane, or if you are using any topical lotions or creams like AHAa or Retin-A, which are not compatible with waxing.

Make sure areas to be waxed are clean of any products.

Check growth is the right length to be waxed. We recommend about 1cm for the best results. Avoid trimming hairs too short because the wax wont grip the hair.

Dont use sunbeds two days before or after a wax because sunbeds can cause skin sensitivity, making your skin go red, inflamed or scabby. Just like exfoliation, waxing removes dead skin cells. Using a sunbed shortly after your treatment can cause burns and skin pigmentation. You may need to hold off more than 48 hours for waxing or tanning if youre still pink or feeling sensitive.

Dont consume alcohol as it will tighten the pores, which can lead to a painful waxing experience.

Be aware of your menstrual cycle as women tend to be more sensitive during this time.

Lightly exfoliate. Getting rid of dead skin cells before your appointment will cut the sensitivity, keeping your skin healthier and help keep ingrown hair away.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear for a bikini wax?

Avoid tight or restrictive clothing. We will provide you with disposable bikini knickers.

Ive booked an appointment for my first ever bikini wax. Is there anything I need to know?

First of all, relax. It can be a daunting experience, especially the first time. Feeling nervous, anxious or embarrassed is not uncommon. Just remember that your therapist is professionally trained and knows exactly what shes doing. Shell do her best to put you at ease and make the whole experience as pleasant and pain-free as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, dont hesitate to ask.

Will waxing hurt?

Its really not as bad as you think, We have great quality wax and our staff are trained to wax fast and communicate with you every step of the way in how to position your body or stretch your skin to minimise pain.

How often should I get waxed?

We recommend 4-6 weeks depending on your growth.

What do I do with Ingrowns?

DONT pick at it, squeeze it or try to tweeze it out because you will bruise yourself, scar yourself. Keep gently exfoliating.

How does pregnancy affect treatments?

Many women worry that it is dangerous to have waxing done whilst pregnant, but this is not the case at all. Aside from the fact that it may hurt a little more than usual because your hormones are often going nuts, it is perfectly fine to continue your monthly hair maintenance. Our staff are all well trained in dealing with these sensitivities and will ensure that you are well looked after.

If I have my period, can I still get a bikini wax?

If youre wearing a tampon, its fine. Just make sure everything is in place, and you are nice and clean.

Do you provide waxing treatments for men and women?

Both men and women are welcome at the salon. In fact, a large proportion of our waxing clients are actually men. The only treatment we dont do is bikini waxes for men, other than the basic bikini.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Please dont shave in between waxing your body will love you for it.
