Getting your pre-delivery checklist together? Make sure your bikini wax appointment is on there!
There are plenty of questions our new and returning clients are too embarrassed to ask. Here are just a few of the questions I have been asked in a shy manner but are very common (trust me, you aren’t alone):
Q: Can I still get waxed during my period?
A: You bet! The majority of our female clients come in for bikini waxes while on their period. If you’re comfortable with it, we are too! As long as you wear a tampon, you are good to go! You may just feel a little more sensitive while on your period so we suggest taking an Ibuprofen about 30 minutes before your wax, if you want to err on the side of caution.
Q: I’m a guy, do guys even wax?
A: Oh my gosh, yes! A good portion of our clientele is male so don’t be ashamed to come in and give it a try. So sit back, relax, and enjoy an ice cold beer.
Q: What if it has been awhile and I am really hairy?
A: The hairier the better! Your hair just needs to be at least 2 weeks grown out before you can get waxed. Any longer than that is a bonus for us because more of your hair is grown in and can be waxed. So, don’t worry about trimming anything beforehand, your Waxologist is happy do it if needed.
Q: But what if I am hairy in weird/abnormal places?
A: There is no such thing as a weird place to be hairy. Even if a specific spot isn’t on our menu we can wax it. There is no "normal" place to grow hair - it tends to grow everywhere which is why we’re here to wax it!
Q: Is it normal to get ingrown hairs?
A: Sadly, yes :( Ingrowns occur when the hair is trapped underneath the surface of the skin rather than breaking the surface. This causes bumps, redness, and sometimes itching. Some people are more prone to them but there is a solution! AND IT'S EASY: Exfoliatie!!! Exfoliating can be done manually with a dry brush, exfoliating glove, exfoliating towel, or with our custom chemical post-wax exfoliant: CARE Serum.
Q: Do I really have to be naked?
A: Welllll, the articles of clothing you keep on is totally dependent upon the service you receive. If we are waxing your face, you should kindly keep your pants on *eye roll* However, if you are receiving any bikini wax, we do ask that you drop your drawers. Cotton fabric covers are available to cover the area while you're waiting for your Waxer to come back in the room, but we do need to see the goods you wanna get waxed. The first two minutes you might feel a bit weird, but our Waxologists see these body parts all day long. They totally know how to make you feel completely at ease. It’s their job, afterall!
Q: Is it common for people to wax their butt cracks?
A: Heck yes! It is SO common! The majority of us grow hair on our butt crack and yes, girls do wax their booty cracks too. Gotta keep that tail feather super smooth. But it’s a very simple service to have done. You just pull your knees to your chest and it's over in seconds. This service is performed all day long, is completely normal and is the quickest way to become BFFs with your Waxologist!
Q: How long do I have to wait to have sex/work out/swim after getting a body wax?
A: We know you wanna flaunt your fresh wax as soon as you can but it is important not to partake in any activities that can cause you to sweat or get germs in your pores for at least 24 hours. This includes sex, working out, going to the beach and getting a tan. If you touch your smooth skin or sweat immediately post-wax, this can not only cause irritation but transmit bacteria into those open pores - this is what causes those littel breakouts. And nobody's got time for that!
