How long does the hair need to be in order to wax?

In the area where you intend to wax, your hair needs to be at least ¼ inch. That’s about the length of a grain of rice. Generally, it takes about 2 weeks of not shaving (bikini area) for hair to grow to this length. Hair that is shorter is not long enough to get “stuck” in the wax and be pulled out. If there’s any question, we can always try a test strip as some people can be waxed at less than ¼ inch.

How long does waxing last?

This is a tricky question to answer as everyone is a little different. In the beginning, you may experience more growth and random hairs popping up in the 1-2 weeks after your appointment than you would after waxing for a few months. Once you have been waxing for 3-6 months, you experience around 2 weeks free of hair with 1-2 weeks of some random hairs beginning to pop up and then proceeding to reach ¼ inch (bikini area). Most people are ready to wax again at about 4 weeks for bikini, 5 weeks for backs, around 3 weeks for legs (lower) and underarms, 2-5 weeks for facial hair, and 4-6 weeks for upper legs. These are generalizations/estimates. It depends on how long you have been waxing, how many active hair follicles you have, your aftercare, whether or not you’re shaving in between, the texture of your hair and how fast it grows, etc.

Does waxing hurt?

Yes. During a Brazilian wax, the pain is immediate and somewhat intense but subsides pretty quickly. You should not leave the appointment walking weird, being sore, needing to ice down the area, or anything crazy like that. Almost every single new client I have ever had has said that their Brazilian didn’t hurt nearly as much as they expected! Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, so there’s no solid way to describe or rate the level of pain.

What are the most painful areas to have waxed?

Brazilian, upper lip, chest (not areolas), the sides of your abdomen, hairline. That being said, your first time trying waxing as your hair removal method in almost any area is not going to be pleasant. I had one client discontinue the service after one strip of hair was removed from her shin as that can be a tender spot. Some people think underarm waxing hurts, some people have very little discomfort. All of this varies from person to person.

What are the least painful areas to have waxed?

Underarm, nose, brow, areolas/nipples, and glutes. This depends on your usual hair removal method. If you’ve been waxing for a while, legs, arms, and even Brazilian waxes are a breeze! If you’ve shaved since your last wax or it’s your first time, it can sting and be more uncomfortable. When you begin to ONLY wax an area, as opposed to jumping back and forth from waxing to shaving, each time you wax becomes less and less painful. Your hair becomes weaker and usually begins to grow less. A fine, weak hair is going to hurt a lot less when you pull it out than a thick, coarse hair with a blunt tip that has been shaved or never disturbed before.

Is there anything I can do to make waxing hurt less?

Some clients find that taking an ibuprofen before their treatment helps a little. Also, allowing the hair to grow a little longer than the required ¼ inch can help a little by reducing the amount of times we need to go over the area. Once you’ve begun waxing, the one thing you can do to reduce the pain is to STAY ON SCHEDULE with your appointments.

What else can I do to prepare?

Besides making sure the hair is at least ¼ inch, wear loose fitt clothing. You don’t want to wear anything tight or synthetic. For Brazilian clients, if you know you are sensitive, you can even bring a pair of clean, cotton underwear to put on afterwards. Also, try to exfoliate and moisturize the area you intend to wax as soon as you decide to have the service performed. Exfoliation should be performed 2-3 times a week, and you should try to moisturize at least every day or two. This will ensure there are no hairs just under the skin (common with shavers) that we won’t be able to remove. Do not use numbing creams! They are hard to wax over, and they don’t work. Please review my post-care instructions and make sure you do not have any inappropriate activities scheduled for the next 24-48 hours, such as gym, tanning, saunas etc.

What does a “Brazilian” include?

My Brazilian includes your pubic hair in the front, the bikini line and the hair around your anus. If you’d like to leave a strip or triangle above the labia in the front, that’s fine too. You don’t have to do “the back” if you don’t want to either, but I will let you know that it’s not as painful as the front. This is obviously a very intimate, personal service, and I do not expect you to do anything you don’t want to. It’s your body!! Whatever hair you do or don’t want is up to you, and I’m not going to make you do anything you don’t feel comfortable with.

Why does my first Brazilian wax (or fully grown-in or post-shaving) cost more?

Generally, your first time requires a little more wax and more time than a maintenance appointment. The same goes for your first time back after shaving. Shaved hairs are harder to get out, which means I need to go over them more times with more wax. I may need to also use thinner strips, which takes longer since the service will hurt more than it would have if you hadn’t shaved or had been on schedule. Also, keep in mind that I schedule your first time a little longer so I can spend some time explaining your service and aftercare.

How do I make sure I don’t get ingrown hairs? How do I treat an ingrown hair?

You will need to follow your post-treatment instructions and start an exfoliation routine at home. I do my best to give you exceptional service when you are in my treatment room, but you also need to do your part at home. Besides exfoliating and moisturizing as directed, please refrain from picking or digging at an ingrown. You may get the hair out, but you also may cause discoloration, infection, scarring etc. The best way to treat ingrown hairs is to stick to your routine and spot treat with Tend Skin as needed. If you are highly prone to a lot of ingrown hairs, even after following proper home care instructions, waxing may not be for you.

Can I get waxed while on my period?

Absolutely! I do require that you wear a tampon for sanitary purposes. Also, be aware, that due to hormones, your service may be more uncomfortable during this time. It’s not an absolute, but a definite possibility. Some people notice no difference during their cycle, while others report a huge difference in pain/discomfort.

Can you get waxed while pregnant?

Yes, waxing is fine during pregnancy. There are some things you'll want to keep in mind, though. Because of an increase in blood flow to your skin – and your pubic area – your skin may be more sensitive, and waxing may be more painful than usual during pregnancy.

Do you offer intimate male waxing?

We do not offer Brazilian male waxing. But are happy to wax the men anywhere else!
