Whether you’re a total pro or a first-timer, it’s totally normal to have questions about waxing or even feel a bit nervous about your upcoming appointment (don’t worry, I won’t tell!).
Below are the top FAQs I’ve received over the years from clients.
If you think of one that isn’t on this list, I’m here to help – send me a quick message or come hang out with me on Instagram where I talk all things waxing-related.
Though it’s different for everyone, you’ll typically see new hair growth anywhere between 5-10 days after your wax.
In a word? Yes – waxing removes the hairs directly from the follicle, so it can be uncomfy.
However, the sensation will vary depending on the texture/type of your hair, your skin, general pain tolerance, and your mindset (I know it sounds ‘woo,’ but positivity, breathing techniques, and other mindfulness practices totally help you stay calm and experience less pain during your wax).
Body hair is usually long enough to wax at 4 weeks of hair growth
Facial hair is usually long enough to wax at 2-4 weeks of hair growth
YES! With consistent waxing, the hair will grow thinner and more sparse, which also helps decrease discomfort over time (in my opinion, it’s one of the greatest benefits of waxing!).
Absolutely! There is NEVER any double dipping here (that should be considered a cardinal sin in the waxing world). I also thoroughly clean & sanitize the bed, counters, coat rack, door knob, and everything in between after each and every client.
While on your period, you’ll need to wear a tampon or cup for me to perform the service. If you’re not comfortable with getting a wax during this time, however, you’re always welcome to reschedule (at least 24 hours in advance, pretty please!) if you’d rather wait.
During pregnancy, I will say that some women report heightened sensitivity to Brazilians in particular, but it is still completely tolerable (and totally safe for both mom and baby!).
