A skincare appointment, even for just a few minutes can transform your mood immensely
need to know
before your first wax...
Do you use hot wax for intimate waxing?
I use hot/non strip wax from Perron Rigot for all kinds of bikini wax and underarm waxing. For the rest of the body I use warm/strip wax from Perron Rigot.
How long does the hair need to be?
Whether you have waxed, trimmed or shaved, you should wait for about 4 weeks before you come to see me. In my opinion, coming any earlier will just waste your time and money. The reason to wax is to make the hair softer, weaker and decrease the regrowth. With most of my clients (which I have waxed for years) I can literally count the hair.
How long will the result last?
That varies from person to person. Most of the time in the very first 3 weeks the regrowth is very little. If you previously shaved, it may take from 2 to 4 waxing sessions before you will notice the difference in the timing of the regrowth or texture of the hair.
How often shall I book a waxing session?
To see the best benefits of waxing, I would advise you to come and see me every 4-5 weeks. The hair goes through 4 stages of the hair growth, which takes approximately 4-5 weeks. In order to see the difference and make the hair weaker, we have to take that hair out in the 4th stage. Of course you can come earlier but the result will not be as great and most of the time waxing in any earlier stage is that bit more painful as the hair is simply not ready.
It is definitely more hygienic. I have waxed thousands of people of different backgrounds, different ages and all I can say: They never come back to shaving. Just try and see. I promise you, you will not go back to shaving.
Is it painful?
Of course it is, I am a beautician not a magician. My quickest Hollywood wax I have ever done is 8 min. Regardless if your appointment is 10 min or 40 min, I can promise you that you feel the pain maximum for 20 seconds. I will use all my skills and experience to make the discomfort as little and as short as possible. I definitely need you to trust me.
How do I prepare for my first wax?
I would like you to drink quite a lot of water a few days before and on the day of your appointment. It tends to be less painful when skin is hydrated. I need the hair to be no longer that half an inch, so you could possibly trim it. The longer the hair is, the more pain you will feel. Exfoliate the area a day before. That will make waxing more effective. By taking the layer of the dead skin off, you will decrease the pain as well. Do not moisturise on the day of waxing. If you have shaved or waxed yourself, I would want you to wait for at least 3 weeks before booking an appointment.
For 24 hours avoid sunbathing, swimming, gym, hot baths/showers, saunas, steam rooms.
I am aware that many of you are very shy when it comes to intimate waxing.
I will ask you to take your clothes off from the waist down in order to achieve the best wax.
I am a professional waxer and I treat my job very seriously.
