Do let your hair grow out for 2-3 weeks after shaving. If the hair is over 1/2in you may want to trim. Just don't trim any shorter then 1/4in.
If you are unsure about trimming too short - leave it be and we'll take care of everything!
Do take an ibuprofen 30 minutes before your wax if you are sensitive or have a low pain tolerance. We also retail a numbing cream that you
can purchase and apply 15-20 minutes before your appointment.
Do avoid sex or friction for 24 hours after your appointment. If this is not an option, using a lubricant can help create a barrier and extra sensitivity is made more comfortable.
Do schedule your appointments every 4-6 weeks. Hair grows in multiple cycles and staying in this time frame will give best results with less pain.
Don't cancel your appointment if you start your period. We provide fresh wipes and tampons for this reason. So if you are comfortable being waxed at this time, so are we.
Don't apply any creams, lotions, etc to the area being waxed the day of your appointment.
Don't sunbathe or tan for 24 hours before or after your appointment.
Don't pick at ingrown hairs. The best solution is prevention. Use a buffing cloth or exfoliating glove in small circular motions while in the shower daily. If ingrown hairs are a problem, we suggest purchasing PFB which is a roll on salicylic based gel.
Don't shave between appointments. Shaving will mess up appointment timing allowing the root to grow strong and makes waxing more painful.
