FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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

BECAUSE WAXING IS ALL WE DO, YOU CAN REST ASSURED THAT YOU'RE GOING TO BE IN SAFE HANDS, OUR THERAPISTS ARE TOTAL PROFESSIONALS AND WILL DO EVERYTHING TO PUT YOU AT EASE THROUGHOUT YOUR APPOINTMENT.

DOES IT HURT?

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

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

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

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WAX?

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

HOW LONG SHOUD THE HAIR BE?

FOR BEST RESULTS AND THE MOST COMFORTABLE WAX, WE ALWAYS SAY YOUR HAIR SHOULD BE AROUND 1CM IN LENGTH. USUALLY 3-4 WEEKS SINCE YOU LAST SHAVED. IF THE HAIR ISN'T LONG ENOUGH, OR IT APPEARS YOU HAVE VERY RECENTLY SHAVED THEN THE APPOINTMENT WILL NEED TO BE REARRANGED. 

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 SAONS SO PLEASE USE THEM TO FRESHEN UP ON ARRIVAL.

DO I NEED TO REMOVE UNDERWEAR?

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

IM 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 YOUR FIRST TRIMESTER.

CAN I GET WAXED ON MY PERIOD?

IF YOU'VE 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 TOO, PROVIDING WE GET AT LEAST 24 HOURS' NOTICE. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A WAX?

ANY REDNESS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL AND WILL GO DOWN WITH 6-8 HOURS. SOME CLIENTS WITH SENSITIVE SKIN FIND THAT ANTISEPTIC CREAMS SUCH AS BEPANTHANOL OR SAVLON ARE SOOTHING AFTERWARDS.

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

WHAT IF I NEED TO REARRANGE?

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

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.
