How long does it last?
Every client is different due to different hair growths and types. Areas such as eyebrows, lip and chins will last approx 2-3 weeks. Legs, bikini and underarms can last approx 6-8 weeks.
How long does the hair have to be?
For best results the hair should be 2cm, any shorter and the wax will not pick up the hair.
Do I need to be patch tested?
Yes, a patch test is compulsory – it is carried out by one of our therapist applying a very small amount of wax to a sensitive area on the arm to see how the skin reacts overnight.
What do I need to do before I come into the salon?
We advise clients not to have any deodorants or moisturisers on the area to be waxed.
TIPS ON BIKINI WAXING
- Wear loose clothing after waxing to stop friction, this helps prevent irritation to the area that has being waxed.
- Do not shower/bath for at least 24hrs after waxing, as the area waxed will be sensitive and the pores will remain open.
- Do not apply makeup or creams after having waxing done for at least 24hrs.
