Q: Does it hurt? A: Depending on where the waxing is happening, it has its differences. There's about a 3 second "sting" and then it goes away! I always make the service as quick as possible. As long as the hair cooperates, it'll be done in no time so the pain won't be long lasting.
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 a hold of it. And I WILL know if it hasn't been three weeks, so don't think you'll trick me. :) **A tip for those who're wanting to do leg waxing-the longer the better!**
Q: Will I be sore afterwards? A: You may experience a little bit of tenderness. It doesn't "hurt", but the area may be warm and tender to touch for the first 24 hours. After the full 24 hours, you should be right back to normal.
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 grow in, and the fourth week is when I recommend for you to come back for your next session.
Q: Do I need to do anything special after my waxing session? A: Yes, you do. For the first 24-48 hours you should NOT tan (in a bed or outside), exercise or take a hot bath/shower. You have to realize that the hair follicles are wide open after getting the hair removed, so they're going to require nothing aggressive to the area that was waxed. The one main thing that should be focused on afterwards is exfoliating. After the tenderness goes down, you need to invest in a good exfoliator and exfoliate about 48 hours after the service to avoid ingrown hairs and to keep the area clear of dirt, oil, sweat, etc.
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.
