Avoid the 3 S's for 48 Hours After Your Waxing Service
sun, tanning bed, spray tan
Waxing gently exfoliates your skin, so it's extra important to protect it from the sun's rays. What might usually give you "a little color" might give you a nasty burn within 48 hours of your service. A spray tan within this time frame will give a lovely rash-like appearance.
Salt from our sweat may irritate open pores (and the teensy spaces where hairs used to be) and cause either a ruby-red rash or a mess of white-heads. My new favorite to combat bacteria and soothe angry skin is Bare from Green Envee, now available in studio for $16.

strange bodies of water
pools, lakes, hot tubs
Hot tubs are riddled with heat-resistant bacteria, which we do NOT want anywhere near freshly waxed areas.

"it can wait!"
Waxing Best Practices
Exfoliate for the first 3-5 days after your service, and twice weekly after that. Exfoliate the day before your next wax for the best removal!
We want all the hairs to come to the party and leave the party at the same time. Waxing every 4 weeks, every 5 weeks, or every 6 weeks for a minimum of 3-4 months will train your hair to grow on the same "cycle."
