Q: How long does the hair have to be to get waxed?
A: The hair needs to be at least 1/2 inches long to effectively be removed from the root. This equals out to about 2 weeks worth of growth. Anything shorter may be unable to be removed or broken, resulting in an uneven wax, and possibly ingrown hairs. We never worry about too long. Please also try to avoid trimming before your appointment
Q: Does waxing hurt?
A: Waxing is uncomfortable. The first time will always be the most painful, but if you stay consistent with the recommended time in between and home care routine, it will get easier and easier each visit
Q: Why is waxing better than shaving?
A: When you wax, the entire hair, root to shaft, is removed. Shaving only cuts the shaft of the hair at the surface leaving you with needing to shave more frequently. Waxing is usually done once every 4-6 weeks.
Q: How long do the results last?
A: Your results will vary depending on how long you have been waxing, how consistent you have been, your genetics, and how religious you are with your homecare routine. A first time client will find themselves seeing some hair start to pop through around a 1 1/2-2 weeks post wax. After the 3rd wax, and each cycle has been effectively removed from the root, clients will start to see hair coming back around the 2-4 week mark.
Q: Can you get waxed while on your period?
A: Yes. You just need a clean tampon or menstrual cup inserted and no blood on your skin when you arrive. Your skin and nerves may be more sensitive during your cycle, but it is perfectly fine to wax during. If you choose to wax on your period and are unable to have a clean tampon or menstrual cup in at the time of your service, you will be asked to reschedule and a late cancel fee of 50% of the service will be collected. I know Aunt Flow is a natural part of a woman's journey, but as per Arizona State Board regulations regarding blood borne pathogens, we are unable to provide services with blood present, as we do not have the proper means of disposal.
Q: Can you get waxed while you are pregnant?
A: Yes. Always consult a doctor before any beauty treatment while pregnant, but it is perfectly safe to wax all the way up to your due date. The bed and waxing positions will be adjusted to accommodate your growing belly
