You must let your hair grow in for at least 2 weeks if you have shaved in order to get a good wax. This should be about a half of an inch, but the longer the better! The more follicles/roots we can pull, the cleaner the wax, the longer it is going to last and the happier you are going to be! The “grow out” stage is often the most difficult step, but the longer the hair is, the cleaner the waxing will turn out.
It hurts more the first time than any other time because you are pulling out 100% of the hair, your nerves are on edge, and you don’t know what to expect. You will experience a quick, temporary sting that stops hurting right away. By far the worst part for most people is the anticipation, not the actual removal! Follow all the tips we give you and you will be fine. Your second time will be so much EASIER!
The pain associated with waxing is highly sensationalized and can be a barrier to some. Of course, our estheticians are sensitive to this and do everything they can to minimize your discomfort. We recommend avoiding caffeine prior to your visit, and scheduling your appointment to avoid your menstrual cycle, as both of these can make you more sensitive.
There are products on the market designed to minimize this discomfort and we carry them at The Wax Bar. Be sure to inquire about them when booking your first appointment as these products need to be applied up to an hour PRIOR to the service.
NO! The longer the better. The longer the hair, the more the wax will adhere, the smoother your skin will become, and the longer the results will last. If your hair needs to be trimmed your esthetician will take care of it as she knows the best length for the procedure.
Yes. If you are on your cycle just wear a tampon and be prepared to be a little more sensitive than usual. Same goes for the few days before your cycle as well.
