PRE WAX CARE
Before you come in for your first wax, you want to make sure your hair is long enough. For ideal waxing conditions, hair should be between 1/4 inch and 3/4 inch long; about three weeks of hair growth from your last shave or four to six weeks of hair growth from your last wax. We require this length to ensure the best possible results! If the hair is too short, the wax will not be able to adhere and you will be left with stubble.
POST WAX CARE
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! Washing and exfoliating your skin is the best way to prevent ugly bumps and stubborn ingrown hairs; before and after your wax. There are many ways to exfoliate but at Wax Me Pretty, we feel that dry exfoliating works the best! Using a dry or slightly damp soft-bristled brush, gently move in a circular motion around the bikini line. This is a great and aggressive way to remove dead skin cells, rejuvenate and renew the skin. This should be done before your wax and two days following your wax as your skin will be a little sensitive.
Avoiding sun exposure 24 to 48 hours before and after your appointment is very important!
