EVERYTHING

YOU NEED

TO KNOW

IF YOU'RE NEW TO WAXING, THEN THERE'S PROBABLY A FEW THINGS YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW. WE'VE PUT TOGETHER SOME OF THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS WE GET. 

WE AREN'T YOUR TYPICAL BEAUTY SALON, WAXING IS ALL WE DO - ALL DAY, EVERY-DAY. WE SPECIALISE IN INTIMATE WAXING AND OUR THERAPISTS ARE TRUE PROFESSIONALS THAT WILL PUT YOU AT COMPLETE EASE THROUGHOUT THE TREATMENT.

DOES IT HURT?

WE CAN'T PROMISE A PAIN-FREE BRAZILIAN, BUT OUR TECHNIQUE, OUR TRAINING AND OUR EXPERTISE MEANS IT'LL BE THE MOST COMFORTABLE WAX YOU'VE HAD. SO MANY OF OUR CLIENTS, PARTICULARLY NEW CLIENTS, COMMENT ON HOW COMFORTABLE THE TREATMENT IS. ANY PAIN EXPERIENCED WILL TYPICALLY LAST JUST SECONDS WHEN THE WAX IS REMOVED. 

THE MORE REGULARLY YOU HAVE TREATMENTS, THE MORE COMFORTABLE IT WILL BECOME. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

EVERY CLIENT IS DIFFERENT, BUT WE TYPICALLY ALLOW 25 MINUTES FOR A BRAZILIAN. NEW CLIENTS WILL TAKE A LITTLE LONGER AS THE THERAPIST WILL EXPLAIN THE TREATMENT AND AFTERCARE ADVICE WITH YOU AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT. 

how often should I wax?

IT DEPENDS ON INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS' HAIR RE-GROWTH, BUT WE USUALLY RECOMMEND A TREATMENT EVERY FOUR WEEKS FOR BEST LONG-TERM RESULTS.

how LONG SHOULD THE HAIR BE?

FOR BEST RESULTS, AND THE MOST COMFORTABLE WAX, WE ALWAYS SAY YOUR HAIR SHOULD BE AROUND 1CM IN LENGTH (ROUGHLY THE LENGTH OF A GRAIN OF RICE). IF IT'S ANY LONGER THEN DON'T WORRY, THE THERAPIST WILL TRIM TO THE DESIRED LENGTH.

WE ASK FOR AT LEAST THREE WEEKS' HAIR GROWTH BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT. IF THERE ISN'T ENOUGH LENGTH FOR THE TREATMENT, OR IT APPEARS YOU HAVE VERY RECENTLY SHAVED, THEN THE APPOINTMENT WILL LIKELY NEED TO BE REARRANGED TO GET BETTER RESULTS. 

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFOREHAND?

IT'S ADVISABLE TO EXFOLIATE THE DAY BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT. WE TAKE HYGIENE SERIOUSLY AND ASK IF POSSIBLE THAT YOU SHOWER PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT, INTIMATE WIPES ARE PROVIDED IN THE SALONS AND WE ASK THAT YOU FRESHEN-UP WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE SALON.  

WILL I NEED TO REMOVE MY UNDERWEAR?

WELL YOU DON'T WANT TO GET WAX ON YOUR BEST KNICKERS! YOU'LL NEED TO REMOVE UNDERWEAR FOR G-STIRNG & BRAZILIAN/HOLLYWOOD TREATMENTS. IF YOU DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING THIS THEN WE RECOMMEND YOU OPT FOR AN EXTENDED BIKINI WAX INSTEAD.

i'M PREGNANT - CAN I GET WAXED?

YES, OF COURSE! WE REGULARLY WAX LADIES IN ALL STAGES OF PREGNANCY. JUST REMEMBER THAT YOU MAY FEEL MORE DISCOMFORT DUE TO INCREASED HORMONES, PARTICULARLY DURING THE FIRST TRIMESTER. 

can I get waxed on my period?

IF YOU HAVE UNEXPECTEDLY STARTED YOUR PERIOD THEN DON'T WORRY - YOU CAN STILL GET WAXED PROVIDING YOU WEAR A TAMPON. IF YOU'D PREFER TO REARRANGE THEN THAT'S FINE, PROVIDING WE GET AT LEAST 24 HOURS' NOTICE. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A WAX?

ANY REDNESS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL AND WILL GO DOWN WITHIN SIX-TO-EIGHT HOURS. SOME CLIENTS WITH SENSITIVE SKIN FIND ANTISEPTIC CREAMS SUCH AS BEPANTHANOL AND SAVLON ARE SOOTHING AFTERWARDS. 

OUR THERAPISTS WILL GIVE AFTERCARE ADVICE TO YOU, AND WE STOCK PRODUCTS TO HELP YOU MAINTAIN RESULTS AND AVOID PESKY INGROWN HAIRS BETWEEN TREATMENTS.

WHAT if I need to rearrange?

NO PROBLEM, WE KNOW THINGS CROP UP! WE JUST ASK THAT YOU GIVE US AS MUCH NOTICE AS POSSIBLE. IF IT'S LESS THAN 24 HOURS THEN WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO OFFER YOUR APPOINTMENT TO ANOTHER CLIENT, HOWEVER IF WE CANNOT FILL IT, THEN YOU WILL STILL BE CHARGED FOR THE APPOINTMENT. 

is there parking near the salon?

YES, WE HAVE PRIVATE OFF-STREET PARKING DIRECTLY OUTSIDE OUR WAKEFIELD SALON AND THERE IS FREE ON-STREET PARKING DIRECTLY OPPOSITE OUR SALON IN FARSLEY.

DO YOU HAVE A WAITING LIST?

PEAK APPOINTMENTS (EVENINGS & SATURDAYS) OFTEN GET FULLY BOOKED 3-4 WEEKS IN ADVANCE. HOWEVER APPOINTMENTS DO BECOME AVAILABLE AS CLIENTS REARRANGE AND RESCHEDULE SO WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO KEEP CHECKING THE ONLINE BOOKING SYSTEM IF IT'S NOT CURRENTLY SHOWING YOUR PREFERRED TIME. 

WE DO NOT OFFER TREATMENTS TO UNDER 18 YEAR OLDS, AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MUST YOU BOOK AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM A SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTION.
