How to Prepare

- Hair must be a quarter of an inch to an inch (although we would prefer at least 3 to 4 weeks of growth) to adhere correctly to the wax. 

- Hair longer than an inch? Trim it down to an inch, not too short.

- Please shower/clean up before your appointment.  

- Resist the urge to shave between sessions.  Shaving can chafe the skin and create irritation.  It also throws your wax off cycle.  If you are despreate, just shave the sides in a downward direction.

- Gentaly exfoliate the area to be waxed.  Having a warm bath or shower before your wax can soften skin, allowing for easier hair removal.  Gentle use of a dry brush before a wax is also helpful as it helps remove dead skin.  

- Every wax after the first one gets easier, especially when your hair starts growing finer.  Your hair will get thinner and more sparse over time, sometimes not growing back at all.  

- Ibuprofen.  If you're concerned about the potential for pain, thak a couple of ibuprofen 20 minutes before your appointment.  

What to Expect in the Room

- Your esthetician introduces herself and asks you to undress from the waist down. 

- All treatment tables and rooms have been disinfected and sanitized in accordance with Covid-19 Guidelines and all requirements of the Ohio State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.

- Your esthetician will analyze skin, ask if you are taking any medications that might interfere with your wax or if you are using any creams such as Retin-A or steroids that can have an impact on your skin during your wax.

- Skin is prepped by cleansing that helps to rid skin of bacteria and excess oils.

- After your wax, your esthetician will check the area to ensure all hair is removed.

- Post wax information will be supplied as well as answers to any questions or concerns you might have.

Post Waxing Care

For the first 12 hours after your wax, we recommend avoiding:

- Vigorous activity, friction, sweating i.e. spinning, bike riding, running, etc.

- Sex (for Brazilian Waxes only).  We recommend this for fist-time waxers.  Once your skin gets used to it, and you use a barrier cream, you should be fine.

- Hot tubs, steam rooms, chlorinated pools, saltwater, or very hot baths/showers

- Products containing perfume, alcohol, baking soda, essentials oils (in fact, you should never use perfumed products down there - ever)

- Tanning beds or direct sun on the waxed area

- Picking at your skin with your fingers or a sharp instrument

- Heavy creams, oils, deodorants, or exfoliating products

- Retinols

- Very tight clothing that holds sweat to the skin

- Deodorants that contain baking soda, citric acid, or essentials oils.  They can burn and irritate the skin.
