Waxing is a semi-permanent form of hair removal that pulls out the entire hair from the follicle. Warm wax is applied to the skin, adhering to the hair, and is then quickly removed, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother. Over time, when done consistently, waxing reduces the amount of hair that grows back, making it finer and softer. To get the most out of your wax, the following should be avoided. Seriously.
How is waxing better than shaving?
Lots of reasons! To start, waxing not only removes hair, it also exfoliates your skin. When the wax is pulled off the skin, it also removes dead skin cells and leaves a brand-new layer of skin. Waxing also weakens the hair follicles, making the hair grow back thinner, which also means it becomes less painful each time you wax! You will have smoother and much longer-lasting results than you would shaving.
What is the difference between bikini and brazilian waxing?
Brazilian wax is all hair from front to back (you can leave a little in the front if you want), while bikini just removes the sides and front (what would be visible in a swimsuit).
How long should my hair be before I get waxed/how long is too long?
Your hair should be at least ¼ inch. If you have coarse hair it should be closer to ½ inch for the first few waxes. After a few waxes, your hair becomes finer and can be waxed at a shorter length.
How long should I wait in between waxes?
Depending on your own hair growth, you should wait 3-5 weeks between waxing. After your second wax your esthetician should be able to tell you how many weeks is best for you to wait.
What is the difference between sugaring and waxing?
Sugaring is a hair removal technique using a paste made only of sugar, water, and lemon juice. Opposite of waxing, it is applied against the hair growth and removed the other way around. Because of this it is a better option for sensitive skin, and some say it is less painful.
