Ahhh, the season of sun, sand, and swimsuits is upon us! And what is just around the corner, Spring Break 2016! As the weather warms up, the layers start to come off which means . . . it's time for a tidy up!
"Spring cleaning" the house may be also on your list, but we're talking about waxing. The most popular waxing service we offer is the Brazilian Wax. This subject can be tricky and sticky (pun intended) but for most of us, it's a necessity when it comes to Summer grooming.
I'm not going to say it's the "best" feeling in the world, but there are certain things you should be doing to ensure the process is as easy and painless as possible. Plus once it is over, not having to shave everyday is a BONUS, we promise!
- Hair needs to be at least 1/4 of an inch long. We strongly suggest no more or no less. Normally about a week and half since your last shave! This allows for the wax to adhere to the hair the best. If the hairs are too short, it means we can’t always successfully remove all the hair via the wax, and we then need to tweeze! Not the answer for a quick pain-free waxing experience, don't you think? ;0)
- The morning before your appointment, take a lukewarm shower. The heat will open up your pores, allowing the root of the hair to be removed easier. We also say, use a loofah in the area to help exfoliate and slough off any dead skin.
- Don't wear tight clothing after your wax appointment. Also we advise you to not apply perfumed creams after a wax. This can result in skin infection and can damage your hair follicles for an uncomfortable skin irritation. Ask us about our favorite aftercare product, Finipil.
Oh and also, here is a little secret.. Keep your waxing appointment on a 4-6 week schedule, and it will make a world of a difference!
