Pros & Cons of Waxing
Temporarily removes hair at the root for an average of three weeks of smooth skin, which can range from two to six weeks depending on your hair type and thickness. Cons: Waxing requires some regrowth in order to be effective, as the wax needs at least a quarter-inch of stubble to adhere to.
Is it healthier to Shave or Wax?
Does hair grow thicker after waxing?
Your hair does not grow back thicker when you get waxing done. It’s the complete opposite, if you continue to get waxing done on an area and do nothing else you will actually find that it grows back finer, lighter and in some cases patchy. … If you remove hair from the root ie sugaring or wax it will not go thicker
Hard Wax VS Soft Wax
When waxing the face, hard wax is generally used. Additionally, it is our professional opinion that, when it comes to sensitive skin such as the bikini area, hard wax is also the best option. It attaches itself only to the hair, not the skin, reducing discomfort and minimizing the possibility of irritation. Soft wax is what you usually think of when you think of body waxing. Soft wax is applied with a waxing spatula before being removed using a muslin strip. It is thicker and applied warm with a spatula. Once the wax hardens, it is removed without the use of a strip.
How long do results last?
Body waxing lasts anywhere from 3-6 weeks, depending on your hair and the growth cycles. A good rule of thumb is 4 weeks.
How long does my hair have to be before I can get a wax?
There isn’t an exact length that your hair has to be in order to wax; however, our experts recommend that you let your hair grow to at least ¼ inch long before your wax appointment. For first time guests, we would stop shaving at least two weeks prior to your visit. The extra length allows our Comfort Wax™ to grip around the hair.
Feel the difference with a Bikini Wax or Brazilian Wax
‘Bikini Waxing’, ‘Brazilian Waxing’ – how do you know which style to choose? We get it, these terms are often used interchangeably, and that can make visiting a wax salon a challenge. We’re here to clear up the uncertainty so that you can get the wax service that fits your needs. Let’s start with our most popular service – Brazilian hair removal, also known as a Bikini Brazilian wax. This waxing service is designed to remove all the hair you don’t want down there – from the front all the way to the back. We even include an added butt strip so that you can achieve the perfect nude look. With a bikini wax, you get two options: Bikini Line or Bikini Full. The Bikini Full removes all the hair in the front while the Bikini Line only removes hair along the panty line. Don’t want a completely nude look? With both our full bikini wax and Brazilian wax services, you can choose to leave a neat triangle, ‘strip,’ or square, depending on which style speaks to you.

This ensures that the wax will adhere to the hair – not to your skin. Our wax specialists then apply our proprietary Comfort Wax™, remove the hair, and soothe your skin with either our Hair Serum or Restoring Serum – depending on whether you went for a men’s facial wax or body waxing.
Pro Tips Before Waxing
- Exfoliate skin. A day or two before you wax, gently exfoliate with a mild scrub, brush, mitt, or loofah to remove dead skin cells that surround the hair follicles.
- Clean skin. Always start your waxing session with freshly washed skin.
- Dry skin.
- We will trim hair first if necessary.
