It’s my first time, how bad is it going to hurt?
There is a level of discomfort during any waxing service, especially if it’s your first time. But not to fear, we do everything in our power to make your experience more comfortable including using super sensitive waxes and excellent estheticians. And it only gets easier! The result is totally worth the 15-30 minutes of minimal discomfort. If your pain tolerance is very low, you can take an ibuprofen to take the edge off and apply Relax and Wax- No Scream Cream 30-45 minutes before your service to eliminate 70% of the pain (call to ask about this product today!) By the way, it’s not nearly as bad as you think it’ll be!! The more you do it, the more consistent you are, the easier it becomes. So keep at it!
How long will it last?
Hair grows in 3 stages and it can take up to 4 waxing treatments before all of the hair is on the same growth cycle, thus all come out together. Your first wax may not remove all the hair, it may last only one week, it may last up to four – it just depends on your own genetics, how recently you’ve shaved, and how well you do at preparing the skin before the wax and taking care of the skin between your treatments. Don’t be discouraged if your hair grows back quickly the first few times. The more you wax, the longer it will last. Your rate of hair growth is unique to you, which can be anywhere from ten days to four weeks. For some lucky folks, it can be longer than that!
I’m pregnant, is it ok to get a bikini or Brazilian wax?
Yes! We know it gets a little difficult to groom yourself and waxing is a fantastic way to clean up before the “big day”. If you have trouble lying flat on your back, we have a pregnancy wedge pillow to keep you comfortable. You may be slightly more sensitive in the bikini area with all the localized blood flow, however our sensitive waxes will help ease any discomfort. We can see you right up until your due date but it’s best to come in for a few sessions beforehand.
What's the difference between a $10 brow wax at a nail salon and a $20 brow wax at your boutique?
High quality wax. With more time spent shaping and consulting to achieve the perfect brow design for you. Every Brow wax comes with a brow trim and complimentary brow fill in.
What is brow/face threading?
Threading is a practice of shaping the eyebrows by removing unwanted hair using a cotton thread twisted into a figure 8. The twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle. It's a very gentle, sanitary, and painless way of removing unwanted facial Hair. It is great for clients with sensitive skin or for those who are on facial medications or blood thinners.
