Before your visit:
1. Read The Waxing Safety section of our website. Waxing is a skin service and skin that either has underlying conditions, is being compromised thru certain medications, has a sunburn or is treated with exfoliating skincare could experience side effects. In addition. we reserve the right to decline services on at risk individuals based on our experience and education for the protection of client safety.
2. Let It Grow!! We want you to stop shaving for at least 2 weeks before your visit. Don't worry, your hair can't grow too long to wax BUT it can be too short. So don't trim! We love waxing so this is a no judgment zone. If your hair is not at least 1/4 inch long we will have to reschedule you.
3. Speaking of No Judgment Zone, we want you to know we wax all types of people. Waxing, like haircuts, is universal. Every size, age, race and gender gets waxed!
4. Book Your Appointment! We can get busy so times and days can fill up quickly. We allow appointments to be booked up to 5 weeks ahead. However, we do require a 24 hour notice to cancel or reschedule.
Day Before Your Appointment:

2. Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Daily exfoliating sloughs off dead skin that can accumulate and cause ingrown hairs. When your hair begins to grow back in 2-3 weeks it needs to be able to come up through the skin. Restricting clothing, dead skin and bacteria can clog pores preventing this.
1. Hair type. Some clients hair type does not take well to shaving. Their skin becomes irritated and itchy. Sometimes causing deep ingrowns and scarring.
2. Hair is removed from the root. The removed hair now has to grow from the root again. Regrowth takes weeks.
3. Hair grows back softer because the tip is rounded. Shaved hair is cut on a piercing angle by the razor. Shaved hairs feel prickly and often cause itchiness and abrasion.
4. No Razor Burn! No Chemical Burn! No Failed Laser Services!
5. Reduction in hair growth over time.
6. Softer skin for dayssss! Not hours like shaving.
7. Removes hair root so legs look smoother without follicle showing at surface,
