Sugaring and Waxing FAQ’s
How long does my hair have to be to get sugaring or waxing done?
Your hair must be at least 1/4 of an inch long for sugaring or waxing. In real life terms that means AT LEAST 2 weeks of regrowth after shaving (yes, seriously!), or at least 3 weeks of regrowth after your last sugaring or waxing session.
Should I trim my hair if it is longer?
No, we prefer if you do not trim your hair because people tend to trim in too short which will effect your results. We have electric trimmers and will trim in for you if needed.
How long does sugaring and waxing last?
Waxing will typically last about 2 weeks until you notice any regrowth and 4 weeks until there is enough hair to wax again.
Does sugaring and waxing hurt?
We’ll be honest with you. Yes, a bit. For some people more than others. Does one hurt more than the other? We have come to realize that eveyone has their own opinion.
What is the difference between sugaring and waxing?
The main difference between sugaring and waxing is the product that is used. Sugaring uses sugar paste, waxing uses wax. And the method in which the products are applied and removed use different techniques.
Which is better, sugaring or waxing?
Again, everyone has their own opinion but in OUR opinion, we think sugaring delivers better results and is easier on the skin than waxing.
What is a Brazilian?
A brazilian removes most or all of the hair from the pubic area and behind area. You can choose to have it ALL removed or to leave a little behind in the areas of your choice.
How do I prepare for sugaring or waxing?
If you know ahead of time you will be getting sugared or waxed you should start exfoliating to get all the hairs out of any dead skin build up. Don’t exfoliate the day of getting your hair removal service however because it may cause sensitivity. Before waxing you can shower and be sure not to aplly any lotions or cosmetics to the areas being waxed.
How can I help relieve the pain of sugaring or waxing?
Some people choose to take an over the counter pain reliever 30-60 minutes before their waxing appointment. We suggest ibuprofen or acetaminophen, not aspirin (causes blood thinning). Also, there are topical numbing creams containing lidocaine that can ease pain up to 60%. Must be applied 30 minutes prior to service.
What if I am on or start my period?
If you start your period and still want a Brazilian we will still do your service if you wear a tampon. If you are close to the time of menstration and don’t feel comfortable coming in if you do start your period please do not schedule an appointment around that time because if you have to cancel same day our cancellation policy and fees will still apply.
What is the aftercare for sugaring and waxing?
We suggest just resting your skin for the rest of the day after sugaring or waxing. That means just taking it easy. No super hot water, no heavy exercising, no sun exposure. We will apply calming and nourishing skincare products after your wax and you can continue to if needed at home. Once your skin is back to normal you need to exfoliate and moisturize your skin daily to avoid ingrown hairs.
