We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Just contact us using one of the options below.
- How long should I leave my hair to grow for my first wax?
If you shave, allow a minimum of 3 weeks growth before you come for a wax. For the very best results, we recommend 4 weeks growth to ensure all hair is long enough for the wax to remove, giving you a longer hair-free time after your wax. The same applies if you use hair removal cream. If your hair is the same length as a grain of rice, it’s perfect.
We understand how difficult it is to leave previously shaved hair to grow out, but we promise you, it’s for the best when it comes to your waxing results!
- How long will the wax last?
If you have left the hair to grow for 4 weeks, you will get a couple of weeks hair free before you start to see any regrowth, which will be minimal compared with shaving. You won’t feel the regrowth coming through and won’t feel like you need waxed for another couple of weeks (week 4). After your very first wax you may see regrowth a little sooner but after your second, third wax with us your hair will be in the correct regrowth cycle to get a couple of weeks hair free from each treatment.*
- Is there anything I should do prior to my first treatment?
Start to exfoliate the area every 2-3 days to encourage the hair to come through the skin and minimise ingrown hairs. We recommend Perron Rigot Double Scrub for this, you can pop into any of the salons for some if you want to kick start your homecare before waxing. Other than that, we need you to leave the hair to come through, no shaving, no trimming!
- Is there anything I can't do immediately after having my wax?
We recommend that for the first 12-24 hours prior to your wax, you avoid any excess heat or heat treatments/activites such as saunas, sun beds, hot baths/showers, hot yoga, gym sessions and really anything that will make you sweat (as much as you may want to with your newly waxed bits, don’t get hot and steamy with your partner, just wait a few hours please!).
We also recommend that you DO NOT use any creams or products on the area for this time unless we have recommended our post-wax products to you, in which you can use as directed by us.
We always complete your wax treatment with post-wax product we deem suitable for your particular skin type. This will be enough to help soothe the skin and keep reactions down to a minimum if aftercare instructions are followed properly.
