Day of Your Bikini/Brazilian/Manzilian Waxing Treatment

  • Please shower before your appointment. We won’t spell it out… you catch our drift. (in a pinch, wet wipes are a lifesaver!)

  • Hair must be at least a quarter of an inch (about 10-14 days of growth) to adhere correctly to the wax. If you are a first-timer, be consistent and get on a 4-week waxing schedule until there is a visible change in your hair growth pattern.

  • Resist the urge to shave between sessions. Shaving chafes the skin and creates sharper, coarser hair!

  • Gently exfoliate the night before and take a warm bath before your appointment to prep the skin before your wax. Having a warm bath or shower before your wax can soften your skin allowing for easier hair removal. We also recommend exfoliation the night before as this removes dead skin build up around and in the follicle again aiding in easier and more thorough removal. We suggest gently dry brushing OR using our gentle exfoliating scrub (Scrub 'me' Luscious) or our lactic cleanser (Peachy Clean Lactic Cleanser).

  • Chill. Come to your appointment as relaxed as you can. Like a lot of things in life, the anticipation is often worse than the actual event. Don’t listen to friends who tell you their waxing horror stories. They don’t come to us! Youtube videos and movie scenes with screaming ninnies will only get your knickers in a deeper twist. This is your experience and we want it to be a good one!! If you so desire, use our numbing cream (No Scream Cream) approx 45-min before you come in for your appointment OR schedule a No Scream Cream, PLEASE!!! treatment before your waxing appointment. Our numbing cream is completely safe to use on your face and body and will help eliminate approx 70% of waxing pain.

  • Take a deep breath. We often ask clients to take a few deep breaths and to try to relax their muscles once they get on the waxing table. Don’t worry—it really doesn’t hurt that much, especially if you are using our numbing cream (No Scream Cream). And trust me, we want you to come back, so we won’t do anything to traumatize you!

  • Know that it gets better. We get that first-timers don’t know what to expect. My advice is to acknowledge that the first one will be the most uncomfortable, especially if you’ve been shaving prior to it. However, it doesn’t have to be the worst thing you’ve ever done. Most of the time, people leave our room pleasantly relieved that the wax wasn’t nearly as bad as they expected. Every wax after the first one gets easier, especially when your hair starts growing in finer and we weaken that horrid follicle! But this is why we recommend getting on a consistent 4-week waxing schedule.

  • Medicate if you must. if you’re concerned about the potential for pain, take an ibuprofen-based pill approx 1/2-hour before your appointment. Some clients feel this takes the edge off.

    • If you have sensitivities (redness), take two antacids (TUMS®) 15-min to 1/2-hour before your treatment. The magnesium in the antacid will help control the histamines in the body.

    • You can use our numbing cream (No Scream Cream) to help ease waxing discomfort by approx 70%.

  • Remember, it will be over before you know it. Being fuzz-free is so worth a couple minutes of discomfort!

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing to the appointment.

    • Don't wear skinny jeans or tight fabrics to your appointment. After your skin has been waxed, you'll want soft and comfortable clothing. Wear soft, loose clothing to avoid irritating your skin after the appointment.

    • Don't wear new clothes to your appointment. You'll want clothes you are familiar with and know you love.

Remember ... if you have any kind of cold sore(s)/canker sore(s)/fever blister(s)/herpes breakout --- treatment will NOT be performed.
 
FOR ANY TYPE OF SKIN TREATMENT - these breakouts must be completely healed and cannot be at all visible on your skin.
