How long/short should my hair be for waxing? 

The hair should be at least ¼ inch to ½ inch for best results. If you have coarse hair it should be closer to ½ inch for the first few waxes.

Once the hair becomes finer it can be waxed at a shorter length. It may take up to three waxing treatments to achieve smooth skin due to that fact that hair grows in stages and all of your hair is never at the same stage.

It is very important to avoid shaving between waxing appointments, as this will interrupt the process and stimulate the hair growth again.

How often should I wax?

Regular waxing is essential, and as such we recommend every 4 weeks. Over time, the hair follicle will have less of a grip on the hair to be pulled and the hairs will come out more easily.

Is there anything I should do before my waxing appointment?

Yes. Make sure the hair is the appropriate length for waxing and the areas to be waxed are clean.

There are certain medications and products that should not be taken or used if you plan to have a waxing treatment soon.

Topical exfoliants used on the area to be waxed such as Retin-A, Renova and hydroquinone, oral acne medications such as Accutane, blood-thinning medications, and topical/oral cortisone make the skin more sensitive and increase the likelihood of irritation or other complications. Please check with your doctor if you are unsure.

What are the different types of bikini wax available?

A Brazilian wax is the removal of pubic hair, front and back using wax.

There is a small shape or strip left at the front of the hair.

A Hollywood wax is the removal  of all pubic hair, front and back using wax. A High Bikini is the removal of pubic hair outside the area of the pants and higher inside than a standard bikini.

There is no removal of hair at the back, this would then be a Brazilian wax.

A Standard bikini wax is the removal of pubic hair just outside the pant line.

What kind of shoes do I need when I have a pedicure?

The best shoes for this are flip flops as they do not damage the freshly painted toenail varnish.
