It is a service that fills in your brows with semi-permanent dye that stains the hair and the skin for long lasting results.
SHOULD I GET MY BROWS TINTED IF I WILL BE SWIMMING OR WORKING OUT HEAVILY?
We do not recommend for the tint will fade a lot faster.
WHAT IS THE AFTER CARE FOR BROW TINTING?
For best results use a wash cloth to cleanse the face. Try to avoid water and oil around your brows.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A BRAZILIAN WAX?
A Brazilian is a bikini service that will remove all the hair that is attached to the root from front to backside leaving you very clean and smooth. A landing strip is optional and can be done upon request.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BRAZILIAN WAX AND BIKINI FULL?
A Brazilian removes hair from both front and backside. A landing strip is optional however if backside is removed it is considered a Brazilian. Bikini Full removes hair from the front area only and landing strip is optional upon request.
DOES THIS TYPE OF WAXING HURT?
It all depends on your pain tolerance. It can be uncomfortable, but this can be minimized by using a special wax (hypoallergenic, formulated for sensitive skin). Most of my guests say that it is not as painful as they thought it would be. We do have a great numbing spray available for purchase. Ask for details!
HOW LONG AFTER SHAVING DO I NEED TO WAIT FOR A BRAZILIAN WAX?
You will need to wait at least two weeks in order to have enough hair growth to wax and get great results.
HOW LONG SHOULD MY HAIR BE?
Hair should be long enough for the wax to adhere to. Typically, about 1/2 inch or at least TWO WEEKS of hair growth.
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREP MY SKIN BEFORE WAXING?
It is a good idea to exfoliate the area to be waxed 1-2 days before your appointment. This helps to deter those pesky ingrown hairs and aids in a speedy hair removal. We do suggest our Organic Sugar Scrubs for they have No Dyes or Perfumes that make them safe for the intimate area and all over body.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY TREATMENT?
Loose cotton should be worn to avoid any aggravation to the skin after your treatment, if it’s for your legs some loose trousers. If you're having a Brazilian done I'd suggest bringing some clean underwear, something not too tight or nothing at all.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A BRAZILIAN WAX?
Once a month. We recommend 4 weeks for the first few sessions. As you come in for your waxing on the regular basis you will see a more even growth pattern.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST BEFORE MY HAIR STARTS TO GROW?
It takes between 4-6 weeks to grow back but it grows back much softer and finer. Results vary for different guests.
IS THERE ANY WAY TO AVOID DISCOMFORT DURING A WAX?
If you are very sensitive in the bikini area take an Advil 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment. We really do believe that if you prepare yourself mentally, your wax experience won’t be as bad as you anticipate. If at any time you are too uncomfortable to complete your wax, please let your specialist know immediately.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY SKIN AFTER MY WAX APPOINTMENT?
Once home, walk directly into your bathroom and THROW AWAY YOUR RAZOR! You'll achieve better results if you avoid shaving between your appointments. Do not exfoliate immediately after a wax. It’s best to wait at least 1-2 days.Please avoid picking at ingrown hairs. For those with persistent ingrown hairs, we offer aftercare products to help reduce redness, swelling, and bumps.
CAN I STILL GET WAXED IF I AM TAKING ACUTANE OR RETIN-A?
We regret that we cannot perform waxing services on clients who are taking Acutane, Retin-A or antibiotics due to the sensitivity these products can cause to the skin. If you are using Accutane, we offer tweezing services to meet your needs.
CAN I GET WAXED IF I’M PREGNANT?
Yes, however please clear this with your doctor. Just like waxing when you are menstruating, being pregnant will leave you more sensitive during and after your wax.
