A Brazilian wax is the complete removal of the hair on the pubic region, the labia, and the butt crack. You do have the option, however, of either going completely bare or leaving a small landing strip or triangle of hair above.
You need to have at least a 3 week hair growth. In fact, the longer the better for your first wax. It is VERY important to have enough hair growth when you come for your appointment. This allows the wax to grab the hairs easily. If your hair is too short, I will ask you to reschedule your appointment.
The recommendation is every 4 weeks. That goes for everything: brows to Brazilian. Some clients experience a slower or faster rate of hair growth, and that time can be changed accordingly.
For sensitive areas, such as the face, underarms, and bikini area, we use hard wax. A hard wax melts at a lower temperature, is applied in a thicker layer, and is removed without a strip. The advantages of using a hard wax is that we can go over the area multiple times without causing irritation, and it is excellent for delicate skin. For larger areas, like the legs and back, a high quality soft waxed is used, which is applied thinly and removed using strips.
It depends on the client. Usually 15-30 minutes.
No! It doesn’t bother us at all. Just use a tampon and we will work around. It happens all the time!
Possibly. Some people get ingrown hairs no matter what type of depilation they choose. Exfoliating daily and using an ingrown eliminator that contains a combination of AHAs and BHAs can help this. Mode Wax Theory offers a wide variety of exfoliants that we happily recommend after your service.
Absolutely not. Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as course.
No. Waxing will not change the pigment of your hair.
We suggest taking a mild pain reliever like Aleve or Tylenol 30 minutes before your appointment. This can help to lessen any pain you may experience during your services.
This service is offered by a couple of our staff members. All the hair is removed from the male bikini area, the scrotum and the crack. This does not include the glutes, but we are happy to add this service if you wish.
