Beauty FAQ - Waxing



Q: What‘s the difference between hot wax and warm wax?

A: Warm wax is applied to the skin using a spatula and removed with a bonded strip. Typically used on brow shape/ lip/chin/leg. Hot wax is applied with a spatula and sticks to the hair not the skin and hardens then is peeled off. Great for smaller surface areas and a must for intimate or underarm waxing.


Q: How long does my hair need to be, to be removed by waxing?

A: Typically 1/4 of an inch. About the size of a grain of rice.


Q: How long should I leave between waxing appointments?

A: This really depends on how quickly your hair grows...you’ll be the best judge of that. But typically 3- 6 weeks.


Q: Does waxing hurt?

A: I’d say it’s a tricky one to answer- it pinches but the more you get it done the more accustomed you are to it and the less discomfort you’ll feel. Remember everyone’s pain threshold is different- what might be uncomfortable for one might not be for another! Best answer- dive in and try! Those that have never look back!


Q: What’s the difference between a Brazilian and a Hollywood?

A: For those wanting a landing strip or a unique design a Brazilian is what you’d be after. For those wanting absolutely everything off a Hollywood would be your choice. Both include removal of undercarriage and buttocks area.


Q: Does half leg include feet and knees?

A: Yes- although half leg can also be from knee to bikini line so covering the thigh, the choice is yours.


Q: How high does a full leg go?

A: From the tip of the toe to bikini line covering the whole leg.


Aftercare:

For the first 24 hours after, to prevent clogging up and irritation to the skin it’s best to avoid the following:

• no hot baths or showers (luke warm water only)

•no saunas/hot tubs/steam rooms or massage treatments

•no tanning (sun beds/fake tan/ sunbathing)

•avoid scarring and over touching of the area with unwashed hands

• no exercise

• wear loose-fitting clothes

• no deodorant on under arm after the wax
