Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long do I let my hair grow out before coming to get waxed?
A: Absolutely no less than three weeks; If the hair is too short the wax will not be able to grab ahold of it, which will result in rescheduling the appointment to a later date. And we WILL know if it hasn't been three weeks... :) Pro tip: Exfoliating the day before your wax will help the hair come out easier.

Q: Will I be sore afterwards?
A: You may experience a little bit of tenderness. It doesn't necessarily "hurt", but the area may be warm and tender for the first 24 hours. Avoid touching the area as we all have bacteria on our hands which could cause ingrown hairs. After the full 24-48 hours, you should be right back to normal; and if not please contact us.
Q: How long does the hair stay away for?
A: Approximately two weeks. ( I say approximately only because everyone's hair growth is different). The first two weeks you should be completely bare (if not very close), the third week is when you'll start to see it come back, and the fourth week is when we recommend for you to come back for your next session.
Q: What're the do's and dont's after waxing?
A: For the first 24-48 hours you SHOULD NOT:
-Tan outside or in tanning bed
-Take a hot shower (warm is better)
-Touch (germs/bacteria on our hands)
-Submerge area in a hot tub, lake, ocean, etc. because...bacteria!
-Have sexual intercourse
-Apply scented lotions, creams, products
-Wear lace underwear (Brazilian & Bikini waxers)
-Wear tight fitted clothing (rubs and irritates the waxed area)
A: You SHOULD:
-Exfoliate and moisturize after the tenderness goes down
-Keep the area clean
-Keep it simple-the more you mess with it or put products on the more chances for reaction and breakouts
Q: If I'm on acne medication can I still get waxed?
A: This must be disclosed before any waxing procedures as this is very serious. Please be aware that any (topical or oral) acne medications can cause skin lifting, tearing or burning. We have a list of medications that we will be able to tell you if waxing is allowed for your skin or not. If currently on or have been on Accutane within the past year, we will need a doctor's note for waxing approval before performing any services.
Q: Can I still get a bikini/brazilian when I'm on my menstrual cycle?!
A: Absolutely; and quite honestly, it happens all the time. We just ask that you use a new tampon right before. There are always wipes and tampons provided in our bathroom to freshen up before any appointment! You may or may not experience a little more tenderness during the service. Some women say it's no different, but if you're nervous you may always take some Tylenol before.
Q: Can I still get waxed if I'm pregnant?
A: 100% YES.
Q: What is the difference between a "bikini" and an "extreme bikini"?
A: Bikini is just your bikini line - top and sides. Extreme Bikini is where the top is taken as far down and sides are taken as far in, without taking everything; pretty much the middle lip area is what will be left. It's more than a bikini, but less than a Brazilian.
Q: Is there a certain age for waxing?
A: Yes. If under the age of 18, a parental/legal guardian must be preset and a signature will be required.
Q: I had to enter my card information to book an appointment. Will this be charged before my appointment?
A: No. We require card information ONLY to enforce our Cancellation Policy. If you were to no-show your appointment or not give a 24 hour notice of cancellation, then yes, that card will be charged 100% of the service(s) booked. It's been a tough battle to apply, but we've been burned too many times in the past. This is our career, our profession and our livelihood and we take this seriously. We aren't like other jobs where you get paid an hourly or salary wage; if you don't show up, we don't get paid.
PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE CANCELLATION POLICY TAB ON THIS WEBSITE.
We respectfully reserve your appointment time for you and look forward to our time together!
***The only exception is bad weather. We do NOT want you attempting to go out if you don't feel comfortable doing so. In this situation, the Cancellation Policy is waived and we'll get your appointment moved to another day without charge.***
