How long/short should my hair be for waxing?
The hair should be at least ¼ to ½ inch for the best results. If you have coarse hair it should be closer to ½ inch for the first few waxes. Once the hair becomes finer it can be waxed at a shorter length. It may take up to three waxing treatments to achieve smooth skin since hair grows in stages and all of your hair is never in the same stage. It is very important to avoid shaving between waxing appointments, as this will interrupt the process and stimulate hair growth again.
How often should I wax?
Regular waxing is essential, and as such we recommend every 4 weeks. Over time, the hair follicle will have less of a grip on the hair to pulled and the hair will come out more easily.
Yes. Make sure the hair is the appropriate length for waxing and the areas to be waxed are clean. There are certain medications and products that should not be taken or used if you plan to have a waxing treatment soon. Topical exfoliants used on the area to be waxed such as Retin-A, Renova and hydroquinone, oral acne medications such as Accutane, blood thinning medications, and topical/oral cortisone make the skin more sensitive and increase the likelihood of irritation or other complications. Please check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure.
