Below are a list of the services we provide as well as some common waxing questions and answers that may help with any questions you may have.

FAQ's

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


For body hair at least half a centimeter of growth is recommended. Particularly if you have previously shaved. Facial hair requires less length, but for best results three weeks between facial hair waxing is recommended.




Do you use warm/soft wax or strip wax?


Both. We use warm wax for facial, underarm and pubic areas, and strip wax for everything else. Sometimes we use strip as a tidy up wax on the top part of the bikini area.




Will it hurt much?


The first time hair is removed by the root it usually does hurt a little. If repeated a month later the discomfort is minimal as the root of the hair has not had the chance to fully regrow.




How can I prevent ingrown hairs?


Exfoliating the skin with a brush or a loofah is always important. As is moisturizing if the skin is dry. If ingrown hairs still occur, we do stock and are able to recommend an ingrown hair treatment to suit your needs.




How often should I wax?


Once a month is the average. Some people with slower growth leave it up to six weeks.





About Hair

Facial hair grows the fastest


It is a fact that facial hair grows faster than any other hair on the human body. Hair on the head only grows between 0.3 and 0.5 millimetres each day, but not shaving a beard for a lifetime can result in the beard growing to over thirty metres in length.




Asians hair grows the fastest


People of Asian descent will have the fastest growing hair, while those of African descent will have the slowest. This can help you identify treatment timelines effectively.




Oestrogen in higher in women with blonde hair


Scientists have identified that women with blonde hair have much higher oestrogen levels than other women.




Pain levels are much higher in those with red hair


Another interesting fact is that those with red hair are more sensitive to pain and painkillers don’t work as effectively when compared to those with blonde or brown hair.




Strands vary based on hair colour


Another interesting fact is that those with blonde hair will have an average of 120,000 strands of hair, those with brown hair will have 110,000 strands, and red heads will only have in the region of 90,000 strands of hair.




Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body


Hair has been identified as the fastest growing tissue in the body, which is why so many people have to shave daily or wax regularly to remove unwanted hair on a regular basis.





Brazilians / Hollywood Wax

Going for a Brazilian wax is something that most people have heard of, but do you actually know exactly what is involved in it?


Well, the chances are that you may think that you fully understand everything although you may be surprised to discover that you do not know all of the ins and outs of this very popular beauty procedure. However, the truth of the matter is that this procedure is a lot easier to understand as we will now see with these few simple steps.




You need to be ready to be naked


Yep, in order to have a Brazilian wax it does mean that you have to be as naked as they day that you were born. Furthermore, you have to prepare yourself for the person that is going to be doing the waxing to be looking very closely at your vagina, so if that thought is something that is uncomfortable for you, then perhaps having this type of wax done is not for you.




You get your butt waxed as well


A Brazilian wax is different from a bikini wax in that you also get your butt waxed and not just near your vagina. Now, this might sound as if it is going to hurt, but that is not actually the case because there are no nerve endings there so there can be no pain when that is the case.




You should not shave before it


Most people that go for a Brazilian wax are recommended to not shave those parts for around five days before they go for the procedure. The reason for this is simply because if you shave then the wax is not going to have anything for it to hold onto and you will not then have a smooth result because it simply cannot adhere to anything on your body. Ideally, you should be looking at the hair being in the region of a quarter of an inch long although that is not an absolute necessity.




Avoid sex the day before it


This might sound rather strange, but it is advised that you should avoid having sex up to 24 hours before you go for the wax. The reason for this piece of advice is to make sure that there is no irritation caused by friction as this can irritate the skin and there is a better chance of the wax and the entire process causing you an issue.




Shower before you go


It is known that having a shower before you go there is going to help your skin to become more supple and there will be a reduced chance of there being any kind of irritation caused by the waxing procedure. In addition, it will also help you to relax as well.




What is some advice regarding both the before and after part of getting the wax, but what exactly is involved in the entire procedure?


Well, as we said at the outset you do have to be naked for it so there is no way that you can be anything other than comfortable with this. You have to also remember that you will need to sit there legs akimbo and it is certainly not going to be the most flattering of positions to find yourself in. At this point you can also decide on exactly how much hair you want to have removed since some women quite like to have what is known as the landing strip above their private area. Alternatively, you can also go ahead and have everything taken off at the one time so you are left completely bare and it is all down to personal preference. How it all happens is that the wax, which is kind of like goo, is applied with a spreader over the area and then a piece of cloth is lain over the wax. After it is slightly pressed down, the waxer will then proceed to whip the cloth off and with it comes the hair that is trapped in the wax. It really is over in an instant although it can take some getting used to when it is your labia that is being waxed for the first time. Now, most people will deal with the sides and the top first before they go ahead and deal with the most intimate and delicate parts of the body. Do not see this as being something similar to trying to prepare you for the sting and pain that is to follow as that is not the case. Instead, it is just the tried and tested method for no actual apparent reason. After this, the waxer will then move onto your butt and deal with that area, so you will need to lie on your belly to make sure that things are done correctly. It might sound rather uncomfortable, but as we said earlier this is not actually the case and you will be rather surprised at it. So that is everything that you should know about Brazilian waxing and you can now look forward to getting it done with a bit more confidence since it is no longer as big a mystery as it perhaps once was. The main thing is that it does the job and it does manage to remove the hair leaving you as smooth as possible. Yes it might be uncomfortable for some people, but you will be more than happy with the end result and may very well feel that it was all worth it in the end.




Wear comfy clothes for after it


It is strongly advisable for you to wear comfy clothes for after the waxing procedure because you certainly do not want to wear anything that is going to be tight especially if you have never experienced a Brazilian wax before. You see, there is a good chance that things are going to be a bit red and potentially slightly sore after it, so wearing clothes that are tight against you will only make matters worse.





Benefits of Waxing

What are the benefits of waxing over other options?


Overall, there are some benefits of waxing as opposed to other options. When it comes to removing hair from the body, there are very specific reasons why waxing is the best option. *Can get rid of large areas of hair at one time. *It can be used on large and small areas effectively, such as the leg and the upper lip. *Has a long-lasting effect for anywhere from two to eight weeks. *It removes the hair from the root instead of just the hair that is on the surface like when it is shaved or removed by depilatory cream. *There is more control when you are waxing, which makes it a great option for eyebrow shaping. *It works on all hair types, colours, and textures, unlike many other hair removal solutions. *It takes a long time for the hair to grow back which is a major advantage for most women. *Over time, the hair follicle weakens, which means that eventually the hair removal can become permanent. *Waxing doesn’t only remove unwanted hair, it also effectively exfoliates the area. *There are minimal side effects to this treatment option.
