This month we wanted to bare some skin on the subject of waxing. Here are some FAQ’s: Question: What is the difference in application of hard and soft wax? Answer: Hard wax is referred to as “strip-less wax”, the wax itself hardens and is removed. Soft wax needs a strip to aid in its removal. Question: Which wax is used on which area of the body? Answer: Hard wax is most often used on smaller, more sensitive areas like the face, underarms and the bikini area. Soft wax is generally used for larger areas such as legs, back, etc. Question: How long should my hair be for a waxing service? Answer: Length of hair should be about a quarter of an inch long. Question: When will I need to get my next waxing? Answer: Typically 3-4 weeks. As you continue to regularly wax, your time between services may increase. Question: Can you numb the area to be waxed? Answer: Yes. A topical cream containing Benzocaine or Lidocaine is normally used for Brazilian waxing and can be used for other areas as well.
Styles of “Down Below” Waxing
American Bikini: removes hair at the top of the thighs and below the navel…anything that is exposed while wearing a traditional bikini bottom. French Bikini: leaves a long, skinny patch of hair often referred to as a “landing strip.” Brazilian: takes away every single hair from a woman’s (or man’s) pubic area including the backside.
We now offer Brazilian waxing. Jessica is highly recommended for this service!
