Waxing InfoQuestions & 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 creams/soaps.
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 3 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.
