Waxing is a great alternative to shaving if you have hair you’re uncomfortable with.
Yes! You can definitely get a Brazilian wax on your period, just use a tampon or a menstrual cup. If you’re using a tampon, make sure the string is tucked in. Waxing has been said to hurt more the week before your period, so it’s best to go in the week after. Keep in mind, your body is more sensitive during your period, so any kind of waxing might be a little bit more painful (but still totally manageable.)
For facial waxing, anywhere from 10-12 years of age is quite normal. Most pre-teens just need a little waxing in between the brows to clean up stray hairs. Body waxing can be started anytime the child/parents are comfortable with it. Children under the age of 16 should be accompanied by a parent for their appointment, and I do not offer brazilian waxing to those under the age of 18 without parental permission.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! We have waxed ladies in their early seventies. You are never too old, so wax on! ALL bodies have the right to enjoy being silky smooth, and your age and weight will not prevent you from achieving that. You might have to engage in some maneuvers that a young, svelte woman might not, but this shouldn’t stop you from getting a Brazilian wax. The main thing affected by being older or bigger is how tight your skin is, and getting it waxed is as simple as pulling it tight for the aesthetician while she does the rest of the work!
If you want to get a Brazilian but you’re embarrassed because you’re plus-size, DON’T be. I know this is easier said than done, especially if you’re younger. You may not have reached that magical threshold of no longer giving a damn what anyone thinks of you. But what everyone says is 100% the truth: your aesthetician has seen. it. ALL. YOUR body is not going to shock and awe. And even if you’ve got something just a little bit unique going on in your nether regions, just rememeber we’ve seen it all. Your body should not prevent you from asking for the same pampering and grooming you deserve.
When waxing for a special occasion, the most important thing is that you wax at least once well in advance of the big event. Everyone is different, and while reactions are rare, you don’t want to find out that you have a reaction to waxing the day before your wedding! I recommend waxing once six weeks before the big day, and then again 3 days prior. Please remember that you do not want to tan 48 hours before and after waxing services and plan accordingly.
You will want to avoid tanning for 48 hours prior to and after waxing. Waxing recently tanned skin can result in peeling and irritation. If you use a sunless tanner or get spray tanned be advised that waxing will remove the tan in those areas because it also removes a thin layer of dead skin cells.
When you wax, the entire hair shaft is removed, root and all, rather than cutting it off at the surface of the skin like you do when you shave. This leaves your skin super smooth with no stubble. Waxing also lasts much longer than shaving, and the hair grows back thinner and finer with repeated treatments.
If you’ve shaven recently, wait five days. And though the time does vary between waxes, depending on how quickly or coarsely the hair grows back, it’s best to wait around a month. Depending on your hair cycle you might wax anywhere between 3-5 weeks.
In General, Yes! Although all of us have a different pain tolerance, so the level of discomfort will vary according to your threshold for pain. Most clients will experience a decrease in pain when they consistently wax over a period of time without shaving in between. Here at A&E we used hard wax for our Brazilian and bikini sessions which is less painful than soft wax.
Hard wax sticks around only to the hair and not the skin, effectively reducing discomfort and irritation. Once it hardens, hard wax does not require a strip, but instead, it is removed by hand directly from the area. This gentler method is generally used for small, large and sensitive areas like the face, underarms, and bikini line. Additionally, hard wax can be used on the same area more than once without irritating the skin. Soft wax is the most common type of wax in the industry due to its easy-to-use application and more accessible price. Also known as strip waxing, soft waxing requires a muslin or pellon strip to remove the hair and is best suited for large areas like legs, arms, and back. As with any type of waxing, soft waxing also involves the removal of dead skin cells. When comparing soft wax vs. hard wax, soft is often considered the more intense of the two waxes because of its high melting point.
A Brazilian wax removes more hair than a bikini wax. Whereas a bikini focuses on the front and sides (what would be visible in a swimsuit), the Brazilian removes the front, sides, back and everything in between, often only leaving a strip of hair in the front—or none at all. Most of the time, you can leave your underwear on during a standard bikini wax.
Some reasons for having a Brazilian wax include cleanliness, convenience and, of course, sexiness.
Here at A&E, we use three types of wax. For sensitive areas like underarms and lower regions we use hard wax. For legs and arms we have a roll on soft wax and finally for the face we use an organic soy wax.
