WHAT TYPE OF WAXING IS THERE?

WAXING WORKS BY REMOVING THE HAIR FROM THE ROOT AND THERE ARE THREE MAIN TYPES OF WAX:

  • HOT WAX

HOT WAX, AS ITS NAME SUGGESTS, IS WAX THAT IS HEATED AND APPLIED TO THE SKIN USING A WOODEN SPATULA. THE THERAPIST WAITS FOR THE WAX TO COOL AND HARDEN BEFORE REMOVING IT DIRECTLY, ALONG WITH THE HAIRS.

  • STRIP/SOFT WAX

THIS ALSO USES HOT WAX, WHICH IS APPLIED TO THE AREA BEING TREATED WITH A SPATULA OR A ROLLER DEVICE FOR LARGER AREAS, MAKING THE TREATMENT SO MUCH FASTER. THE THERAPIST THEN APPLIES A DISPOSABLE STRIP OVER THE WAX, AND THEN WAITS FOR IT TO COOL. ONCE COOLED THE THERAPIST THEN REMOVES THE STRIP, BRINGING THE WAX AND HAIR WITH IT. THE HEAT AND THICKNESS OF HOT WAX MEANS THAT PORES OPEN SLIGHTLY,  AND THE WAX IS MORE SUCCESSFUL AT REMOVING ALL OF THE HAIRS IN ONE GO.

  • COLD WAX

COLD WAX COMES ON STRIPS WHICH ARE ALREADY SHAPED FOR A PARTICULAR BODY AREA, SUCH AS THE UPPER LIP. THEY ARE APPLIED TO THE AREA BEFORE BEING PULLED OFF. THESE ARE TYPICALLY USED FOR HOME WAXING, BUT THEY ARE LESS EFFICIENT AND OFTEN NEED TO BE REPEATED MULTIPLE TIMES.

WHICH IS BEST?

THERE’S A LONG STANDING DEBATE ABOUT HOT WAX VS. STRIP WAX AND WHICH IS BETTER. BOTH, IF DONE PROFESSIONALLY, CAN RESULT IN AN EXCEPTIONAL HAIR-FREE FINISH. IT WILL DEPEND ON WHAT AREA IS BEING WAXED, AND THE PREFERENCE OF THE CLIENT. TYPICALLY, STRIP WAX IS EXCELLENT FOR LARGE AREAS, SUCH AS LEGS, BACK AND ARMS, WHERE SKIN IS ALSO LESS SENSITIVE. HOT WAX IS GOOD FOR SENSITIVE AREAS, AND WHERE HAIR IS THICKER, SUCH AS THE BIKINI AREA.

HOW LONG DOES WAXING LAST?

THE AMOUNT OF TIME WAXING LASTS FOR IS DEPENDENT ON THE BODY AREA, AND HOW QUICKLY YOUR HAIR GROWS. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN CLIENTS ASK HOW LONG LEG WAXING LASTS, WE USUALLY ADVISE THAT THEY CAN EXPECT SMOOTH LEGS FOR UP TO SIX WEEKS. FOR BIKINI WAXES, IT’S USUALLY MORE LIKE THREE TO FOUR WEEKS. ONCE YOU’VE HAD A WAXING TREATMENT, YOU WILL GET TO KNOW HOW LONG YOUR WAX LASTS, AND HOW SOON YOU WANT TO BOOK IN FOR A NEW TREATMENT. HOW OFTEN YOU SHOULD WAX IS AN INDIVIDUAL DECISION, BUT OUR WAXING THERAPISTS FIND CLIENTS WAIT 4-6 WEEKS BETWEEN TREATMENTS.

DOES WAXING HURT?

WAXING DOES INVOLVE PULLING THE HAIR FROM THE ROOT, SO IT IS MORE PAINFUL THAN OTHER HAIR REMOVAL OPTIONS. HOWEVER, THIS IS DEPENDENT ON A FEW THINGS, AND MOST OF OUR CLIENTS SAY THAT THE DISCOMFORT THEY FEEL IMPROVES OVER TIME, DISAPPEARS QUICKLY, AND IS WORTH IT FOR THE SMOOTH FINISH. THE AMOUNT OF DISCOMFORT SOMEONE EXPERIENCES IS ALSO DOWN TO THE SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE THERAPIST. ZOE IS HIGHLY TRAINED AND EDUCATED IN WAXING AND TRIES TO MAKE THE EXPERIENCE AS QUICK AND COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE. THE MORE REGULARLY YOU HAVE AN AREA WAXED, THE LESS UNCOMFORTABLE IT WILL BE. A GOOD TIP IS TO TAKE IBUPROFEN, IF YOU CAN, AROUND 45 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT.

CAN YOU WAX ON YOUR PERIOD OR DURING PREGNANCY?

YOU CAN GET A WAX ON YOUR PERIOD. HOWEVER, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU SCHEDULE IT FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOUR TIME OF THE MONTH. THIS IS BECAUSE YOUR SKIN IS MORE SENSITIVE DURING YOUR PERIOD AND THEREFORE IT CAN FEEL MORE UNCOMFORTABLE. FOR THE SAME REASON, WOMEN MAY WISH TO CONSIDER WHETHER THEIR USUAL WAXING REGIME SHOULD STAY THE SAME DURING PREGNANCY. IT CAN DO, AND WAXING DURING PREGNANCY IS USUALLY SAFE, BUT THE INCREASED HORMONES AND BLOOD FLOW CAN MAKE YOUR SKIN MORE SENSITIVE. 

WHAT TYPES OF BIKINI WAX ARE AVAILABLE?

  • STANDARD: A STANDARD BIKINI WAX GETS YOU BIKINI READY, REMOVING THE HAIR AT THE FRONT PANT LINE, SIDES AND TOP OF PANT LINE , LEAVING A SMALL TRIANGLE AND THE HAIR BETWEEN THE LEGS.

  • BRAZILIAN: A BRAZILIAN WAX WILL ALSO LEAVE A SMALL TRIANGLE/STRIP OF HAIR AT THE FRONT BUT WILL FULLY REMOVE THE HAIR BETWEEN THE LEGS FROM FRONT TO BACK, LEAVING THE AREA VERY SMOOTH.

  • HOLLYWOOD VIA MOULD: WITH A HOLLYWOOD VIA MOULD WAX, ALL OF THE PUBIC HAIR IS REMOVED FROM THE WHOLE AREA, FRONT TO BACK AND A FULL VAGINAL MOULD IS CREATED TO ENSURE THE SMOOTHEST RESULTS.

*PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT OFFER MALE INTIMATE WAXING

PREPARING TO BE WAXED

IF YOU’VE DECIDED YOU’D LIKE TO HAVE A WAX THEN YOU’VE PROBABLY GOT LOTS OF QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO PREPARE FOR IT. HOWEVER, NOT MUCH PREPARATION IS NEEDED. SIMPLY BE CLEAN AND YOUR THERAPIST WILL EXPLAIN WHAT THEY NEED YOU TO DO. SOME CLIENTS LIKE TO EXFOLIATE THE AREA A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE WAX, TO IMPROVE THE RESULTS AND LOOSEN ANY INGROWN HAIRS. ONE OF THE FRUSTRATING REALITIES WITH WAXING IS THAT THE HAIR DOES NEED TO BE A CERTAIN LENGTH TO GET A GOOD RESULT. WE’D USUALLY RECOMMEND THE HAIR IS AROUND 3-5 MM: ABOUT THE LENGTH OF A GRAIN OF RICE. WITH SHORTER HAIRS IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO GET A COMPLETE FINISH.
