Why choose waxing over other hair removal services?
We do not recommend waxing IF...
Although sugaring is all natural, it doesn’t remove all of the fine, vellus hairs like waxing can so you are often left with a less than flawless result
What do I do before I wax?
Some products that conflict with waxing are:
PLEASE NOTE: New products come out every day, and these the most common products used. If you are in doubt, don’t use it or don’t wax.
What do I do after I wax?
Be sure to keep the waxed area clean, DON’T TOUCH, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 to 48 hours. This means:
Use an ingrown hair serum. We recommend Mancine ‘Ingrown Zone’, this is available in our salons.
Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!
To ensure your next wax is smoother and prevent ingrown hairs, we suggest exfoliating every day in the shower. By doing this, dead skin and oils are removed from the surface of the skin so the hair is able to grow back evenly with minimal irritation.
