Tips and FAQ
Here we share our Pre and Post Waxing tips. We want to be sure you have the best experience possible.
For the best wax experience, the longer the better! It’s recommended not to shave for 3 weeks prior to your wax. Yes, it’s best to grow it out!
Please no trimming! We can do a quick trim to ensure your hair is the perfect length and not too short.
A little moisturizing goes a long way! We recommend moisturizing the area being waxed for a couple of days before your appointment. Dry skin can be more painful, so use that moisturizer ahead of time and have a better experience!
Do not exfoliate the day of your wax but you certainly should on the days or weeks leading up to your wax.
No hot tubs, saunas, hot baths, tanning or hot yoga the day of your wax. A warm shower is just fine.
Important! Please be sure to let us know if you are being treated by a doctor, taking medication, or using prescription skin-care products. And please inform us of any previous adverse reactions to waxing.
Post Waxing Tips
Know that it is normal to have slight redness, soreness, or small bumps at the follicles. These are temporary reactions and should subside over the next 24 hours. Do not hesitate to call if you have concerns or experience persistent redness or irritation. We wish we could say that you won’t break out or have any ingrown hairs ever, but that wouldn’t be true. Here are a few things you can do to minimize post-waxing trauma.
The First 24 Hours…… Important!
Avoid heat, bacteria and sweat! So, no intense exercise, sex, hot tubs, hot springs, saunas, tanning and hot showers. Keep your skin clean and wear clean loose-fitting clothes! Try not to touch your skin too much or apply any products that might irritate your skin.
2-3 Days After Your Wax
Exfoliate! You may start gently exfoliating to prevent ingrown hairs. We recommend using a dry brush or gentle body scrub. To get rid of, and proactively prevent, ingrown hairs we highly recommend purchasing our aftercare products.
One Week Later
You may notice a small amount of re-growth! It can take up to four waxing treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives the best results. DO NOT shave between appointments, or you will never see the benefits of waxing.
Q – Is getting a Brazilian awkward?
A – Nope! It is the most popular service. Don’t worry about feeling ‘naked’ around us. We’re all women. We’ve seen it all and waxed it all. We concentrate on giving you the most painless wax possible.
Q – I have my period; can I still get a bikini wax?
A – Yes. We just suggest that clients wear a tampon during the service. You may be a little more sensitive, but if you’re worried about what we will think, don’t be! If you don’t care, we don’t care.
Q – What is the difference between a basic bikini, bitweeny and a Brazilian?
A – The basic bikini removes the hair that would fall outside of your average swimsuit line. A between goes in a little further than the swimsuit line, but not to the labia. With the Brazilian, we go all the way back through the booty and take everything off!
Q – Do I need an appointment?
A – Yes. You can book an appointment Online or give us a call at 203-234-7900 salon. Keep in mind, evenings and weekends are our most popular times.
Q – What is your cancellation policy?
A – 24 hours. If you are unable to cancel 24 hours in advance, you will be charged for the service.
