Here are a few quick tips for waxing. Feel free to share them and don’t forget to PIN THEM to Pinterest
As one of the top waxers in my area, I am often asked about where I get my supplies. My wax comes directly from Spa/salon wholesalers. My everyday supplies usually come from Amazon. You have to do what you have to do to keep your costs low to stay competitively priced. This is a list of the items that I use. A quick note: I am an Amazon affiliate and may receive commission form some of these sales. This doesn’t cost you anything but helps support the page.
This is an article about the general Brazilian wax procedure. Although each Waxpert has his or her own technique, you will find that it is pretty similar to this.
Please take the appointment etiquette seriously!
Arrive on time. Use the washroom before arriving at your appointment. “Freshen up” right before your appointment. Email if you have questions or concerns. Females clients only.
If you are bringing a friend for support, let me know. There is no room divider or privacy so they will see everything. That’s ok if you have that kind of relationship but I’d like to have a chair waiting for them.
You will be greeted at the door and welcomed into the room. Be prepared to answer a few questions as I take notes on the computer. You will be asked to remove your pants and underwear and asked to lay down on the bed and to place a towel over top. I do not leave the room.
You will be directed to move into various positions in order for me to reach the all the hair. By
this point, I will hopefully have reassured you that the pain won’t be as bad and will likely explain to you that you are my 4th or 5 th Brazilian that day. This is a great time to ask me questions. Also, just so you know your labia is normal looking. I have never been shocked by anyone’s genitalia and I have seen 1000’s. Do you have a ring down there? I can work around it. Are you 9 months pregnant? No prob. If your water breaks on the table you pay double, also if you go into to labor please ask your partner to call or email and let me know you won’t make it. Think you will chicken out after the first couple of strips? That’s fine. No one ever does. But if you do you still have to pay me $25 to cover my costs. Check out what you need to know about pre and post prep in this article “Pre/Postcare/FAQ”
You will NOT be asked to get on all 4s. Enough said,
Let’s talk about the bum. You will get your bum waxed. Everyone does. Why would you leave the hair there and wax everything else? This is included in the price.
I take cash, check or email money transfer. I also charge tax on top of my service price.
If you are satisfied with your wax and feel like I did a good job, please leave a review somewhere on the internet.
How long will the area be red?
It should go away within two hours, however, clients who have sensitive skin may notice it takes up to a day. You can use a soothing cream to help get rid of the redness.
How long will the results last?
First-time clients will notice the regrowth typically from 2 to 3 weeks. When you start to regularly wax on a schedule, the length of time between waxes will get longer generally four to six weeks. After your fourth or fifth visit at 4-5 week regular intervals, all your hair will be in the same hair growth cycle and will be a good waxable, length at the same time. You will start to see the same effect as regular waxers after further appointments.
How can I prevent pain?
The least painful time to wax is 5-14 days after your period. Do not drink coffee or alcohol prior to your waxing appointment. Take an ibuprofen 2 hours prior to your appointment. Apply a numbing spray prior to your appointment.
→How can I prevent ingrown hairs?
See above in post care!
→Will it hurt less the second time?
Yes, because the hair is growing back as a new hair, it is softer and thinner and has a smaller root bulb.
→How often should I get a Brazilian wax?
In the first 6 months, I recommend every 4 weeks. After that every 4 to 6 weeks depending on your hair growth.
→Can I be waxed when pregnant?
Yes. There are no restrictions on waxing when pregnant and we have lots of experience waxing heavily pregnant ladies who come in right up to their due date.
→Can I be waxed during my period?
Yes. We ask that you use a fresh tampon before your appointment and that you are hygienically presented.
→What is blood spotting?
Hairs in the Anagen (growing) stage of the hair growth cycle is all supplied by tiny blood vessels. When an Anagen hair is forcibly removed by waxing, a small amount of blood may travel up through the channel in the skin that the hair was previously in.
→Can I shave if I have to?
You can but it will cause the hair to grow thicker and your next wax will be much more painful.
→Why do you use so many different types of wax?
Different types of hair need different types of wax.
→Is sugaring better than waxing?
No, you are pulling the hairs out by the roots with each method. The difference is that most waxes or oil soluble and most sugar are water soluble.
→How can I get the best waxing results?
Moisturize and exfoliate! In the days leading up to your appointment, you must moisturize the area being waxed.
