Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the hair have to be?

Your hair should be at least 1/4 inch in length and that should take about a week after shaving to get to that point.

Will it hurt?

The most frequently asked question.  Usually, the first time is the most uncomfortable.  You are going where you haven’t gone before and you don’t know what to expect.  Also, on your first visit you are removing the greatest amount of hair.  With repeat visits the amount of hair regrowth is less and the discomfort is greatly diminished.

TO MINIMIZE DISCOMFORT:  We use only a custom blended hard wax made especially for us.  Our wax is made of all natural ingredients that are climatized to this area so it sticks to the hair only and not to the skin. The wax is very expensive but performs the best with the least discomfort and that is what our clients deserve.

Will it grow back thicker?

Shaving bends the hair and cuts it at an angle (see the photos under “Why Wax”) leaving a sharp pointed thick shaft we all call stubble.  This “Hair Spear” continues to grow, thick, sharp and uncomfortable.

Waxing surrounds the hair and removes the shaft AND the root.  It takes much more time for a new hair to take the place of the old one and the time between waxes gets continually longer.   When the new hair eventually grows in, it is soft and not stubbly.

How long before I need to wax again?

That depends on the individual and what you have been doing before waxing.  It is important to have at least ¼ inch of growth before your initial waxing to achieve maximum hair removal. Most people get their second treatment 3 to 4 weeks after that. The third visit in 4 to 5 weeks after that.  After the third visit, you can increase the time between visits as hair regrowth will be greatly reduced.  The more consistent you are with your treatment schedule the better your results will be.

Do I have to be nude?

It depends on the service. For most services no but for Brazilian, yes. All of our wax specialist are ladies with years of experience and State approved certifications.  This is what they do, all day, and they keep it professional.  We also provide draping in the room if you desire.  For a Brazilian, you will only need to undress from the waist down, including your underwear.

What exactly is a Brazilian and How long does it take?

A Brazilian wax is the complete removal of the hair front & back. You can decide to leave some or total removal. The Brazilian itself should take no longer than 30 to 45 min.

Can I get a bikini or Brazilian Wax while in my menstrual cycle?

Yes.  During your cycle some people believe the area may be more sensitive and makes the procedure less comfortable.  We suggest a mild pain reliever before you come.

There is no reason you cannot get waxed during your pregnancy.  We would prefer you discuss with your Physician, however, before you visit.

But I am on Medication?

Please advise us of any medical or skin conditions or any medications prescribed by a doctor such as Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Accutane. Users of these medications and others are advised to not wax the face as these medications tend to weaken the skin and abrasions may occur when the wax is removed.

How old do you have to be to wax?

Do I have to trim or prepare before waxing?

No, our Wax Specialists will take care of everything and walk you through the process.

Can I wax still if I have a sunburn?
