sometimes in life, you just can't get it right the first time. i'd like to start off people with the bikini and move their way up.
that way clients won't end up with half a bush. if it's totally unbearable, we will reschedule.
yes, yes, yes. lots of things in life hurt, good news is, it is a quick process so it will hurt (sometimes real bad for some) but only for a split second.
now, pain killers. i personally haven't had luck with the "ibuprofen 30min before". i just suck it up and get it done. honestly, unless they are "prescribed" pain killers....
drinking beforehand also won't help. it tightens the pores, dries the skin, and creates poor circulation. it's honestly not that bad, even if you are on your mensi (though it can be more sensitive for others).
there's really no way around that because it happens every darn month.
so, if you can't handle it, don't do it.
it's almost like getting a tattoo. if you really want it, you will pull thru.
i am not going to force anyone to go through a service they are not comfortable with so, we will just end it where your comfort level is. but, you will have to get naked and...once the wax is on, there's no turning back!
first you will fill out an intake form. then a consultation will be done.
next, you will be asked to undress.
during the service you will be asked to help hold the skin taught. don't worry, it will go by much more smoothly and efficiently with your help.
after the service is complete, you will get dressed, i will go over aftercare and then we prebook your next appt. hooray!
preggo women's got hair too. actually a lot more hair. just to warn you though, everything is heightened when you are pregnant so be prepared to be more sensitive, mama bear.
if you are baking for >5mos, & are a virgin waxer,
or haven't been waxed in >6mos,
i highly recommend a patch test prior to scheduling an appt, and also check w/ your dr.
did it ever grow back more coarse or faster when you over-tweezed those brows way back when? (though some of us wish that)
hair grows in 3 different phases (anagen, telegen, catagen) and all together they last 4wks long. again, this is dependent on the individual. that is why it takes at least 3 visits (sometimes more) for all the hairs to be in sync, and why it's important to return every 4wks.
no, it grows back finer and there will be less. it may seem like it grows faster because you are not used to seeing it baby smooth.
and due to the hairs reaching different phases. also, if this theory was true, i'd think we overcome baldness.
who am i to say no?
although, i will say it's not recommended. the area will be inflamed, red, irritated. the pores are more susceptible to cooties.
it's best to wait 48hrs to do anything that is going to be sweaty and rubbing in that area.
it's not going to feel great. but whatever floats your freshly polished boat.
friends are great when it comes to activities like this. however, unless that friend is your parent and you are under 18, then no. they won't be able to help you anyway. they are more than welcome to hang out in the waiting area. no partners allowed either.
as for your children, if your baby is content in a carrier, that is fine by me. any child older than that would need to be in the waiting area. they have better things to do anyway.
this is a very common question for a trip to brazil. my answer to that is..
'what would dory do?'
just keep waxing!!
it's a natural body function, so let's all be adults here and keep it professional please. i'm not going to take it personally, and neither should you.
i suggest you think of something that grosses you out. furthermore, if' you're looking for a reaction from me, wrong number!
tanning appointment, definitely no. the skin has just been exposed to UV light and will not be suitable for waxing. you need to wait min. 48hrs, sometimes longer depending on your skin condition.
workout, yes, though it's not ideal because the skin will be sweaty. i would try to shower prior to coming in, at least a rinse to get the sweat off. menstrual cycle, yes. however, you will be more sensitive.
on that note, let's discuss the elephant in the room. in the waxing world, there's something called the "poop butt" (self-explanatory).
if you have it, i will let you know. if you are pungent, i will let you know. if you're leaking, etc. i would definitely want you to return the favor. our bodies are not flowers.
if it's been >3mos, or you can braid the hair, tie it up in a ponytail, flat iron it, etc.that should give you an answer. ideally, you want to come every 4wks. that is how long a complete hair growth cycle lasts.
the hair should be no longer than an inch. plus the longer the hair, the more it hurts. i only wax. i do not trim, clip, cut, shave, or groom. no exceptions.
threading is suitable for all types of skin and ages. it leaves little to no redness behind and is a very natural method.maintenance is every 4wks, but can be done as early as 2wks because the hair only needs to be above the skin surface.
i only offer threading for facial areas. threading is not done on the body.
