Women nowadays prefer waxing (than shaving) because:
- The ultimate smoother sensation
- Safer (no incidental cuts)
- More efficient (prolongs the time until hairs grow back)
- Hair grows back finer
- Remove dead skin
- Lighter skin tone
- Eventually stops the hair growth entirely
Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker/stronger/darker?
Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you
become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become
quite sparse and not as coarse. When hair is shaved, it is cut off at the
thick part of the hair, which is why you can feel stubble the next day.
A properly waxed hair is removed from the root, and when the hair
starts to grow back it is a new hair, very fine at the tip, so no stubble.
The only things known to stimulate hair growth are hormones: natural
What are soft and hard wax?
There are two types of wax that are used for in-salon depilation:
1. Soft wax , a.k.a. strip wax, is applied thinly to the skin with a
depilator/roller. A rectangular cloth (read: woven strip) is pressed onto
the wax and then swiftly removed, taking both wax and hair with it.
Strip waxing is an effective way of covering large areas of skin quickly,
making it popular for use on legs and arms.
2. Hard wax a.k.a hot wax, which is applied more thickly to the skin
with a spatula. no woven strips are needed when using hard wax.
Hard wax is usually preferred for sensitive areas because it is less
painful and can minimize bruises and scar.
What is brazilian waxing?
Also known as the Hollywood Waxing or the Playboy Waxing, Brazilian
Waxing removes all hair from your pubic area as painlessly as
possible. You may choose to have everything taken off, or to leave a
shape on the front. Most people choose a strip or a triangle. When we
say ALL hair, we mean every last strand from front to back.
Does it hurt?
With the right technique, we promise to ensure you have the least
discomfort & pain during the process. Rest assured that our therapists
are well-trained to work fast and professional. However, based on our
experience, the first-time is usually the most inconvenient for new
patrons (it will get much better the second or third time, trust me!).
Probably because new patrons are more nervous.
Bottom line is, it is really not as bad as you imagine. If we can
describe the level of pain, it will be more like surprising jolts rather
than actual pain.
Nevertheless, we have provided “Numbing Spray” ready for use prior
to waxing. The numbing spray is safe for sensitive areas and will
temporarily numbs the surface of the skin. It contains Lidocaine, it
takes the sting out of waxing while also sooth the skin with its aromatic
blend (product of USA).
What kind of wax do you use?
We use both soft and hard wax by Perron Rigot (imported from Paris,
France). We have tried experimenting with a lot of big brands of waxes
available and finally settled down on Perron Rigot wax due to its
texture and quality. Perron Rigot has won many awards and is UK
salon’s #1 favourite wax.
Is there an age limit for any of the waxings?
We will wax clients of any age, but if you are younger than 18 we do
require a parent to accompany you to sign our waxing consent form.
The only service that you must be 18 years of age or older is for the
When can’t I wax?
We cannot wax you if you fall under any of the following categories:
- You just had an IPL (laser) on the same area within the last 6 months
- You are under medication of Retin-A or Roaccutane or any similar
skin medication that usually makes your skin really dry
- You have sunburn or cuts or wound on the same area
*Note: we suggest to avoid waxing 3 days prior, during, and 3 days
after your period since your skin is usually more sensitive during that
