Frequently asked questions

How long does hair need to be for a wax?


3 weeks of growout is suggested. Wax can't grab the hairs if they are too short, and I want you leaving as smooth as possible!




What activites should I refrain from post-wax?


LIsten, you don't get waxed not to live your life, but I do suggest taking precautions. If you work out, or work up a sweat elsewhere, change clothes immediately after and/or rinse off in the shower. Aim to keep the area as cool and dry as possible.




Can I get waxed on my period?


Yep.




Do you perform male brazlians?


Unfortunately not, but I'm happy to wax any other part!




What form of payments do you accept?


Cash, credit cards(via square), and Venmo




How can I prevent ingrowns?


Some people are more susceptible to ingrown hairs, but I am happy to go over product recommendations and lifestyle changes that can be easily made to help your skin stay happy. I also use a high quality hard wax and high frequency machine post wax which helps to disinfect the area and prevent ingrowns.




Are there medicaitons or situations that interfere with a wax?


Unfortunately, yes. The following are a list of some common medications that make skin more sensitive and prone to lifting, scarring, bleeding, and/or bruising: -Accutane (a big waxing no-no) -Retin-A(or other Retin-A derivatives) -Differin(or other acne medications) -certain antibiotics Furthermore, recent chemical peels and laser treatments as well as sunburns do not mix well with waxing. If have any questions please contact me or your doctor prior to getting waxed.
