Waxing Dos: Best Practices for a Smooth Experience

  1. Hair Length: Grow your hair out to at least a quarter of an inch before waxing. This length is ideal for the wax to grip onto the hair effectively.

  2. Exfoliate: About 48 hours before your appointment, gently exfoliate the area to be waxed. This helps remove dead skin cells and lifts hairs for a cleaner wax.

  3. Inform Your Esthetician: Always inform your esthetician about any medications you're taking, especially those that affect your skin's sensitivity, such as retinoids or acne medications.

  4. Shower Before Your Appointment: Showering before your waxing appointment ensures that your skin is clean and free of oils and lotions.

  5. Wear Appropriate Clothing: Wear loose, breathable clothing to your appointment to avoid irritation post-wax.

  6. Maintain Regular Waxing Schedule: Wax every three to six weeks to maintain optimal hair length and minimize discomfort.

  7. Choose a Reputable Salon: Research the salon's reputation, read reviews, and check their professional presence to ensure they maintain high standards in waxing.

Following these guidelines will help you achieve the best results from your waxing appointment and keep your skin healthy and smooth. If you have any questions or need further advice, always feel free to consult with your esthetician—they are there to help!
