I don't know if you've heard but... we officially added waxing to our service menu!! I am so freaking excited to be able to rip out all of those tiny little baby hairs. You can book your wax appointment here! Now, let's chat a bit about waxing and why you may want to put down the razor.
So here comes the tale as old as time. Waxing vs. Shaving and in recent years, threading and sugaring have become just as popular! There are so many options out there for you and it truly depends on person to person. Here a few points on why clients love getting waxed!
It grows back finer and slower. Because we are pulling the hair out from the root of the follicle, we are essentially destroying that follicle causing the hair to take much longer to grow back and when it does, it is not near as strong as it was. Typically I recommend clients to book their next appointment for 2 weeks. This is the perfect amount of time to allow the hair to grow in and not get to be too much!
Over time, you will have little to no hair growth. With consistent waxing, hair growth dwindles down to almost nothing. Meaning that eventually, you may only need to come in every 4-6 weeks for a refresh! The great part about this is that you also eliminate the dark five o'clock shadow that comes along with shaving.
The ease of upkeep. Not having to shave your damn underarms every day is a MIRACLE. For real, the amount of energy it takes to keep up with hair growth as a shaver is absurd. Not only do you have to shave the body part every day, but you may also get razor burn or have to deal with the itchiness of shaving. With waxing, this doesn't happen! You come in every 2 weeks for your appointment and bam, no upkeep.
What to expect.
Now, I'm not here to promise you that waxing will be painless because that would be a lie! Waxing affects every person differently so here are some things that you can expect!
It may hurt a bit. But I promise it is pain that you can handle and it will be worth it all in the end!
Waxing is a long term solution and requires effort. You will not get amazing results by just going once a year. Waxing is best when you go on a consistent schedule, and it hurts less!
You may need to disrobe depending on the area. If you are getting your underarms waxed and you are a bit more conservative, you may want to wear a tank top so you won't have to remove your shirt! As for Brazilians, modesty goes out the window, my friends.
You shouldn't shave in between. This may be tempting but it is important to not shave in between to get the best results of the wax! We may need to bump up your appointment and that is perfectly fine.
& it gets easier!! When you come in for your third leg wax, you're going to think it is a breeze compared to your first one. You really do get used to the pain!
How to prepare!
Let's get you ready for your first wax! Whether you're coming in for a Brazilian, underarms or brow wax, there are some things you should be prepared for to get the absolute best out of your service.
1. The hair must be 1/4 in. in length to allow for the wax to grab it. This is typically about 10-14 days after your last shave.
2. Shower beforehand, especially for Brazilians... please!!
3. Exfoliate the area the night before to get rid of dead excess skin cells and help the hair come out easier.
4. If you're worried about pain, take an Advil 20-30 minutes before your appointment. This will help to ease the initial shock!
5. Last but not least, relax!! It will be over before you even know it and it will be oh so worth it to have that fresh, smooth baby skin.
Let's get rid of that fuzz!
On a serious note, if you like your leg hair then you keep it baby!! I am not here to tell you that you need to be a naked mole-rat. I am just here to support you if you'd like to become one!!
