Waxing Prep & Questions

Let it Grow

The hair in the bikini area should be a quarter-inch long if it’s fine, and a half-inch long if it’s coarse. That means you’ll need to wax approximately every two to five weeks. Keep hair long enough for the wax to grip it. When the hair is too short, the wax can't pick it up well enough to remove it; when it's too long, it prevents wax from adhering and causes more pain. Two to three weeks of growth, or about an eighth to a quarter of an inch, is ideal for leg, underarm and bikini hair.

Prepare Yourself

The morning before your appointment, take a nice thorough shower with gentle exfoliation. Hot water opens pores and allows hair to come out easy, making it less painful for you. Gently exfoliate your skin a day or two before waxing, but skip harsh scrubs the day of your waxing appointment. A rough washcloth is perfect for gentle exfoliation, but don't scrub too hard.

Manage the Pain

if you’re concerned about the potential for pain, take two advil 20 minutes before your appointment. Some clients feel this takes the edge off. Also, take a deep breath—it helps in yoga, it will help here (or try this five-minute meditation). This is also a place where you can “look at your phone—or talk to your waxer,” she adds. You’ll need the distraction.


Come to your appointment as relaxed as you can. Like a lot of things in life, the anticipation is often worse than the actual event. Don’t listen to friends who tell you their waxing horror stories. They don’t come to us! Youtube videos and movie scenes with screaming ninnies will only get your knickers in a deeper twist. This is your experience and we want it to be a good one!!

Post Wax Care

Although the pain does subside as soon as the wax is over, the area can remain sensitive, which is why we advise you not to use any scrubs for the next 48 hours and not to expose the area to direct sun for at least 24 hours. To treat redness or swelling, apply a small amount of cortisone cream.


After the tenderness has subsided, we recommend to exfoliate in the shower to remove dead skin so the pores don’t become clogged, causing ingrown hairs and bumps. If bumps do appear, “don’t squeeze or tweeze!”.
