Questions & Answers

Waxing is a popular hair removal method, which offers at least

two distinctive advantages over using a razor. With waxing, the

desired area remains virtually hairless for four to six weeks -

sometimes as long as eight weeks. With shaving, you're back to

'square one' after just a couple days. A 'best case scenario' is

achieved when long-term waxing results in a permanent reduction

of hair growth in a targeted area. If you've never undergone a

waxing treatment before, we've prepared a Q&A section that

should answer most of your questions.


Q)How much hair growth does one need for waxing?


A)At least one quarter inch of hair growth is needed for the removal of

hair with wax.


Q) How often do I need to be waxed?


A) This depends on the individual usually between 4-6 weeks.


Q) What can I expect from my waxing therapist?


A) I have undergone advanced training in Male & Female Intimate waxing

over the years and  I'm also  proficient in speed waxing.

I am a mature, understanding and friendly therapist and will make you feel

welcome and comfortable at all times. Any other therapist that work at

Urban are fully trained and Insured and have gone through extensive

practice to make sure they are up to my standards both in waxing and

customer care


Q) Will I have to be naked?


A) Fraid so buddy ! For all intimate waxing you will have to be naked from

the waist down but there's no need to be shy I've waxed hundreds of

bums and body parts and yours will be no different!


Q) Will it hurt?


A) Any hair removal from the roots will be uncomfortable and anyone who

says otherwise is lying. If there was a completely pain-free wax or

technique be assured I would have found it by now! A slight sting is normal

and the more often you get waxed the less you feel it.   I have been trained

in techniques to ensure your waxing is as comfortable as possible...but of

course it normal to be nervous on your first visit.


Q) How do I reduce ingrown hairs?

A) Ingrown hairs are hair strands which haven't quiet broken through the

skins surface but instead fold over on themselves and create unsightly

spots on the skin. The most effective method is to exfoliate daily using a

loafer or mitt.  Then moisturize using a non-perfumed based cream.


Q) What type of wax do you use?


A) Only the best, I have a sweetie shop of waxes and I use the wax I feel

is most suited to your hair type. On large areas I use strip wax and for all

intimate,facial & underarms I use hot non-strip wax. I do not sacrifice the

quality of waxing treatments regardless of time and costs.

Other salons might be cheaper or even dearer and some may even profess  

to be quicker in their treatment times but I take pride in my work and that

shows in the end result your waxing treatment. If your not happy then

neither am I and you won't walk out of the door until we are both satisfied

that your treatment is satisfactory.


Q) What about aftercare?


A) You will be given an aftercare sheet before you leave the studio, please

read it!. Just in case you don't, for 24 hours after you've been waxed, No

hot showers/baths, No sunbathing/sunbeds, No saunas/spas/gym. No smelly



Q) I have sensitive skin.


A) For anyone who is sensitive to wax or those who suffer with

psoriasis/eczema we can use the old age way of hair removal called

sugaring.I have  trained in body sugaring with Nagwa Stanforth, the first

lady to bring body sugaring to the UK. Sugaring is gentle enough to be used

on all skin types and contains only natural ingredients. Please mention this

when booking.


Q) What if I need to cancel my appointment?

A) Things happen and sometimes at the last minute. We don't take deposits

unless you are a new client and are having a full body wax (sometimes a

hour long service, so yes we have to I'm afraid)  So it would be nice to let

me know if your not going to make your appointment for any reason or

your going to be late. I will always do my best to accommodate you as long

as I know...

 Last but not least please arrive for your appointment clean and fresh. I

have wipes to freshen you up but if your really smelly (and I'm sure your

not!!) your treatment could be refused.
