For best results, your hair should be approximately 1/4" long, which is typically 2-3 weeks of growth.
For the first time, it's better that you trim the hair slightly. This will help to make the waxing treatment less painful.

Avoid the sun and/or tanning beds 2 days before and after your waxing treatment.
Exfoliate the are that is going to be waxed, preferably with a dry loofah or exfoliating gloves 1 day before your appointment (excluding the face). When exfoliating, use circular movements going against the hair growth. This can help revent ingrown hairs and make the waxing treatment more effective.

What to Expect
Waxing Treatment can last any where from 5 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on the area being waxed. A Brazilian can be done in 15 minutes, but if it's your first time it can take longer.
It can discomfort more the first time than any other time because you are pulling out 100% of the hair. Your nerves are on edge, and you don't know what to expect, but it's a quick sting that stops hurting almost immediately after.
If you are getting a Bikini wax, we provide a disposable thong to wear, unless you prefer to wear your undergarment.
If you are getting a Brazilian wax, we provide a modest drape prior to treatment if needed.
If you are doing underarms or legs, we will require you to remove any garments that maybe in the way, but we will give you a smock if needed.

Keeping a regular waxing schedule helps maintain your hair growth and reduces some of the pain that can involved with your first waxing.
If you're planning a special occasion with your significant other, be sure to leave plenty of time after your waxing to allow for any unforseen circumstances (breakouts, redness, swelling, etc.)
If your skin is sensitive prior to and during your menstrual cycle, you may want to avoid waxing. However, if you don't mind, we don't either.
Hair grows in 3 stages and it can take up to 4 waxing treatments before all of the hair is on the same growth cycle. Waxing may last from 1-6 weeks. The more you wax the longer it may last. However, if you last hair removal was shaving, your first wax post shaving will not last as long. Please don't shave in between waxing.
Your rate of hair growth is unique to you, can be anywhere from 10 days to 3 weeks.
We recommend waxing every 4-5 weeks. In order to keep the hair coming in at a reduced rate, it's best not to go past 6 weeks before your next wax.
