Waxing FAQ

What is sugaring?
Sugaring is a hair removal method that is believed to have originated in Egypt, using a paste made from three ingredients: sugar, lemon, and water. That sugar paste is applied to the skin at a lukewarm temperature and molded over the area against the natural direction of hair growth and removed with a flicking motion. With the flicking motion, hair will be removed in the direction of the natural hair growth.
Who is sugaring good for?
The form of hair removal that you choose is personal preference, but I recommend sugaring for sensitive clients, since it is a natural product made using only three ingredients, and is kept at a lukewarm temperature.
How long does hair have to be to be waxed?
Hair needs to be at least 1/4″ to 1/2″ long; if it is too short, the wax won’t grab the hair.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
Nope! Over time, hair will actually grow back finer and softer.
Do you offer waxing services for men?
Yes, aside from bikini/brazilian areas.
What is the difference between bikini, extended bikini and a brazilian wax?
  • Bikini: removes hair extending outside the panty line.
  • Extended bikini: removes hair extending outside the panty line, and further inside the panty line leaving a thin strip of hair.
  • Brazilian: removes all hair front and back (some women choose to leave a small strip on the front).
How often should I book my waxing appointments?
You should expect to be smooth and hair free for at least 1-2 weeks and hair will be long enough to wax again in about 4-6 weeks.  Brazilians have separate pricing if they are booked within the maintenance time period of 4-6 weeks.
Can I get waxed if I'm on my period?
Yes. However, while on your period (and just before)- sensitivity is increased, so if you have a lower pain tolerance I recommend waiting until afterwards.
