Welcome to Waxing FAQ's

It’s never as bad as you think it will be! You may feel a slight discomfort but this will only last a few seconds, I have my tricks to make it easier on you. Each time you get waxed, the hair weakens therefore making it more comfortable with each wax. For best results return every 4 - 5 weeks for your waxing.

For best results hair should be at least the length of a grain of rice, or you should have at least 3-4 weeks growth from your last method of hair removal. If you come in with hair shorter than this, I won’t be able to wax. Trust me, cover up and let it grow… it’ll be worth it!

Yes, in the few weeks leading up to your wax exfoliate every few days and moisturise daily.
On the day of your wax avoid hot showers, heat treatments and do not apply moisturisers or deodorant to the area(s) to be waxed.

I always recommend wearing loose clothing, you don’t want anything that is too tight or may rub against the freshly waxed area and cause irritation. If getting a bikini wax you may wish to bring fresh underwear to change into after.

No, I always say the longer the better - No need to be embarrassed, the longer the hair the better the wax as you may trim too short and I won’t be able to wax you.
I can safely trim the hair if need be.

Ideally every 4 - 5 weeks, we all have different hair growth cycles and it will take a few waxes to get all the hair on the same one.

Yes, absolutely, you may find that you are a little more sensitive during this time but if you still wish to proceed, there is no need to cancel your appointment, just wear a tampon and you’re good to go!

Yes, I can wax you right up until your due date. Please notify me beforehand, as I will adapt the treatment time so that we have more time.

This will vary from person to person and your individual hair strength. Some redness and raised bumps can be expected around the hair follicle, this can last up to 24-48 hours after waxing. This is known as a histamine reaction and is completely normal but it usually subsides before this. Taking an antihistamine before your wax can help this. After your treatment I will talk you through what you might expect.

There are a few things you could do prior to your waxing appointment which may help you have a better experience.

  1. Avoid Caffeine - avoid anything with caffeine in it as it is a stimulant it can make the skin more sensitive. Save your coffee to after - it’ll be well deserved!
  2. Drink loads of water it’ll help to hydrate the skin
  3. If you usually have a histamine reaction after waxing (redness and raised bumps), take an antihistamine before you come in.
  4. Try not to get yourself to stressed out about the waxing appointment, it will be over before you know it!

I know it's daunting if you’ve never been waxed before or if you’ve previously had a bad experience but there is no need to be, you are in safe hands. My aim is to give you the best wax you’ve ever had so you walk out of the salon feeling fabulous!
I gain the majority of my new clients through word of mouth which I think speaks volumes in itself.
If you still feel hesitant, please get in touch with me and I will talk through any concerns you may have.

Aftercare is crucial for the best results!
