WAXING 101

First, relax...feel confident in knowing that all of our waxing specialist are Licensed Estheticians.

 

How long does my hair have to be to be waxed?

We recommend 1/4 inch, which is approximately 2-4 weeks after shaving (depending on how fast your hair grows). Keep in mind you don't need it very long either. So don't feel like you have to wait too long to come and see us.

 

What should I do before getting waxed?

Avoid tanning 24 hours before being waxed. Wear comfortable clothes if it's your first time. This prevents irritation to the recently waxed area. Some clients like to have a pain reliever 30 minutes before their appointment to make the service more comfortable. Apply your BareEASE Numbing Cream 45 minutes prior to appointment to ensure your experience is as painless as possible.

 

Oops I Shaved, Now What?

Don't worry, we aren't mad. Come back in when your hair is long enough to start your waxing routine. Remember, our wax can wrap around hairs as short as 2mm. So if you're in a bind we can remove that unwanted hair.

 

I've just been waxed. Anything I should know?

Avoid tanning, exercising, and scented lotions for 12 hours after being waxed.

Remember, exfoliants are your friend.

Exfoliation removes the outer layer to reveal the newer skin beneath. This shedding of the outer layer unclogs pores, keeps skin clean, and allows your hair to grow freely. Wait 24 hours after your wax to exfoliate.

 

I've been getting ingrown hairs, how do I do I prevent and/or get rid of them?

We recommend exfoliating daily and applying one of our topical products we carry in the Bar for purchase.

Let your service professional know if you have been on any skin medications that could affect your waxing service. These include, but are not limited to, Accutane, Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids (glycolic, salicylic etc.) or any other skin thinning medication.

 

I've got a little something extra, can I still get waxed?

If you have a mole, varicose veins, cold sore, skin sensitivity, are on your menstrual cycle, or expecting a child... you can still get waxed. Just make us aware. We have numbing cream available for those with skin sensitivity.

Ladies, waxing on or near your menstrual cycle can make waxing more painful, so make sure to schedule your visits wisely. We will still perform the service, just be aware that you may be more sensitive.
