Waxing savvy

FAQ and waxing advice

Please arrive clean and smelling good. If you’re having extreme waxing and anything inappropriate is said or done, you will be asked to pay and leave whether your treatment is finished or not. I only do waxing so please don’t embarrass yourself by asking for extras.

How long does the hair need to be?

The hair should be no shorter than a grain of rice. If the hair is too short I cannot take responsibility if it can’t all be removed. If you’re having extreme waxing, the longer the hair, the more painful it will be, so you can trim the hair before your appointment if you wish. If you’re unsure then please leave it and I will trim if necessary.

How long will the results last?

You should see minimal regrowth during the first 3 weeks with a noticeable increase after that. Regular waxing encourages slower, sparser regrowth.

How often should I be waxed?

Ideally every 4-6 weeks.

Waxing aftercare

After you’ve been waxed, avoid sun, sex, deodorant, hot showers or baths, chlorinated pools, solariums, spas, saunas and exercise for 24 hours as these will irritate the skin. Good hygiene and light exfoliation a couple of times a week are very important to avoid foliculitus and ingrown hairs. Keep your skin moisturised.

And finally

For those that embarrass easily – if you’re having extreme waxing you’ll have to get naked from the waist down. Don’t worry, I’ve seen it all before!
