When you arrive for your appointment you will be asked to fill out a form. This is important because we need to know if there are any contraindications to your waxing service. Certain topical creams, prescriptions and health issues can affect and damage your skin and it's important to make sure waxing is a safe option for you!
Do not shave for at least two weeks before your wax! Hair must be at least 1/4 inch for waxing (The length of a grain of rice)
For best results do not shave between waxes. Return for waxing every 3 to 4 weeks for best results. If you do this, hair will grow in finer and slower. It will also make for a much more comfortable waxing experience!
