FAQ

What is eyebrow sculpting?

Eyebrow sculpting is the art of creating the perfect set of custom brows for each individual based on their face shape. Brow sculpting includes trimming, tweezing and waxing the eyebrows. It is important to remember no two person’s eyebrows can look the same and the eyebrows on your face are sisters and not twins.


 

What is a Brazilian wax?

A Brazilian wax removes all hair from the pubic region from the top to the labia and even between the cheeks.


 

How long do I have to let my hair grow?

The eyebrows especially are hardest thing to let grow but it’s worth it in order to achieve the best results. Hair should be 1/4 inch or 6mm long. Please DO NOT trim hair prior to your visit, if necessary we will trim the hair properly during your visit. In most cases, trimming is not necessary.


 

What is the difference between strip and hard wax?

The removal of the wax is the major difference – strip wax is removed with a piece of cloth and hard wax is removed by flicking up an edge of the wax and pulling it off. Both types of waxes are effective on all areas. Both types of wax are very flexible, soft and gentle on the skin.


 

Should I trim my hair prior to my appointment?

NO! In most cases this isn’t necessary. If trimming is necessary, your specialist will do so prior to your service.


Does a Brazilian wax hurt?

There is a level of discomfort during a Brazilian, especially if it’s your first time. The pain associated with waxing can be a little exaggerated and does scare clients into not wanting certain services. We do everything in our power to make your experience more comfortable. We offer numbing products for purchase that reduce discomfort, specially formulated waxes and well trained and experienced estheticians to help to make your experience more pleasant.


 

Will I have to be naked during my Bikini or Brazilian wax?

We take your modesty seriously and we want you to be as comfortable as possible. For such a service you will be bare from the waist down.


 

How long does a Brazilian wax take to complete?

Our goal is to complete your service in a timely manner normally 15-20 minutes or less. Contrary to belief, what helps the service to go quickly is the assistance of the client holding the skin taut. We complete every Bikini and Brazilian wax with the client’s help.


 

Should I shower right before my appointment?

It’s always nice to feel clean when you come in for an appointment but we offer fresh wipes with every Bikini and Brazilian wax so you don’t have to worry.


 

How often should I receive an eyebrow wax?

Each individual’s rate of growth is different. For brows, most client’s visit every 2 weeks. We are firm believers in giving your brows the chance to grow out between appointments. We recommend that you don’t tweeze your brows in between services , this helps your brows growth rate to be at the same pace.


 

How often should I receive a Bikini or Brazilian wax?

For Bikini and Brazilian waxing we recommend every 4 weeks. Again, this can be adjusted based on your individual growth rate.


 

I’m pregnant. Can I still get a Brazilian wax?

It’s best to consult your doctor before you book. Although it’s generally safe to wax after your first trimester.


 

Should I get waxed the day of a big event?

If it’s your first time waxing we recommend booking your wax 2 or 3 days before a big event such as your wedding.


 

What if I get my period before my appointment?

It’s always best to avoid scheduling your Brazilian waxes for while you are menstruating.


 

When should I NOT wax?

You should never wax if you are on an acne medication such as Accutane, Differin, Retin-A or any other skin thinning or blood thinning medications. Waxing while on these medications can cause the skin to lift. Steer clear of waxing any area with varicose veins, sunburn, an STI or contagious skin infection. If you have undergone cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels you should wait at least six weeks before getting waxed.


 

What is the normal skin reaction to waxing?

It is normal for your skin to show redness after waxing. Some skin is more sensitive than others and reactions may range from no redness at all to very red. The first time you wax an area, or if it has been a while since your last waxing, you will probably experience some redness and sensitivity afterwards. This usually subsides within a few hours, or for very sensitive skin within 24 hours.
