Gents, sorry, but we’re going to ask you to sit this one out. These tips are specific to bikini waxes for women.
Alright ladies, if you’re the type to jump ahead, we’ve provided a few links to get you to the topics you want to read about most.
5 REASONS YOU’LL LOVE GETTING YOUR BIKINI AREA WAXED
Getting your bikini area waxed by a professional can truly be a “treat yourself” moment. Most ladies find themselves more pleased with the results of waxing than other temporary hair removal options like shaving, epilation, and hair removal creams. Our top five benefits include:
Not only does waxing remove hair, it’s a physical exfoliation that removes lifeless surface skin cells, which means you’re receiving hair removal and skincare all in one.
Because you are removing hair from the root and exfoliating the skin, after a wax, you’ll probably find that your skin is now among the smoothest things in your life.
Since your hair is being removed by the root, it will take much longer to grow back than with shaving.
THINNER AND FINER HAIR
When your hair does grow back after waxing, it will grow back weaker, making it finer, softer and sparser. Win-win!
Many people find hair removal methods like epilation and hair removal creams irritating to the skin. However, waxing rarely causes this problem if it’s done by a licensed professional.
CONSISTENCY PAYS OFF:
Once your first wax is out of the way, you’ll find out that every reservation gets easier and easier. In order to keep your skin soft and smooth and your next wax as painless as possible, we recommend waxing year-round.
AFTER YOUR FIRST WAX
Your first wax removes the majority of hair that has grown above the skin. Because hairs grow in different cycles, your subsequent waxes will remove the hairs that were still growing below the skin’s surface but have now sprouted above the skin. After three to four waxes, all of your hairs should be growing in the same cycle, resulting in longer lasting smooth skin.
BIKINI WAX AFTERCARE TIPS
Consistency pays off. Once your first wax is out of the way, every reservation gets easier and easier as long as you don’t shave. If you shave, the next wax will likely feel just like the first. Additionally, shaving between waxes can make you susceptible to itching, or worse… ingrown hairs. Plus, shaving is just irritating and time-consuming. So put the razor down!
HOW LONG SHOULD HAIR BE FOR MY NEXT WAX?
We recommend getting waxed once your hair has grown to be at least a ¼ inch long. Usually your wax will last from three to four weeks, but everyone’s rate of re-growth is different so results will vary between guests. But remember, with the right products, you can help your skin stay smoother, longer. Just ask your Wax Specialist to point you in the right direction.
SEX AFTER WAXING?
We recommend that you wait 24 to 48 hours to give your skin time to heal and allow hair follicles to close. This will prevent any further skin irritation.
TANNING AFTER WAXING?
Tan, beautiful skin looks amazing, but we recommend waiting 24 to 48 hours after a wax before tanning. The freshly waxed skin is susceptible to sun damage if exposed too soon. If you need to go in the sun, thoroughly apply sunscreen to the waxed area.
