Frequently Asked Questions


What's the difference between a Brazilian, partial Brazilian, and regular bikini wax?

A full Brazilian wax removes all the hair in back and front. A partial Brazilian removes all the hair in the back, but leaves a "landing strip" of hair in the front or a small triangle. A regular bikini wax (also called a granny wax) only removes the hair that would normally poke out when wearing a regular-cut swimsuit.

 

I've never had a Brazilian wax before.  What can I expect?

It is is my job to answer any questions you may have and to make you feel as comfortable as possible. You will be instructed to remove your clothes from the waist down (for a Brazilian wax) and your waxing specialist will leave the room to give you privacy to undress. A white "modesty towel" will be left for you on your dressed treatment table to be placed over your private area while waiting for your waxing specialist to re-enter the room. When your waxing specialist returns she will begin your treatment. If it's your first visit, she will explain what she is doing throughout the treatment to calm any nerves you may have. New clients have told us that although they feel only slight to no discomfort, keeping an open dialogue also helped to calm their nerves.


Following my first Brazilian wax how often will I need to come back?

We advise our female clients to monitor their hair growth after their first Brazilian wax with us and when it reaches close to 1/2" or longer, then it's time for another wax. This can take anywhere from 4 - 8 weeks for most women. Keep in mind that although we are able to wax you when your hair growth is just 1/4" long, it will cause you more discomfort at this length because the hair needs to be long enough for the wax to shrink wrap around it in order to be pulled out easily and successfully.

 

How much time does it take for you to do a women's Brazilian wax?

It depends on the client's hair growth. Typically your service will take 30 - 45 minutes. We do not offer fast, assembly-line Brazilian waxing services where we get you in and out in 10 minutes while you suffer needlessly. We take our time to do it right and give you a proper and virtually painless Brazilian waxing treatment. Your comfort and safety is our #1 priority.

 

Do you use a numbing cream or do I even need one?

Our virtually painless method does not require any application of numbing creams nor do we have to liquor you up beforehand. Ditto with any unused Vicodin or other pain meds you have at home.

 

Will I be all red down there after my Brazilian wax?

Erythema (redness) varies from person-to-person. With our method, you may have some slight reddening during the treatment, however, most of the redness will be gone within a few hours...not days.

 

I just shaved my bikini area, how long will I have to wait to get waxed?

Hair growth varies from person-to-person, however, most women post-shave need to wait a minimum of 3 - 4 weeks before the hair is long enough to be successfully waxed.

 

How should I prepare for my Brazilian wax?

If you get your Brazilian wax from us, you don't need to mentally prepare yourself or even have a drink beforehand because it's not going to be painful.  However, we cannot necessarily say the same about other waxing establishments. Other than that, we do appreciate if you shower before you arrive or if you're coming straight from work, please shower that morning. We also supply female freshen wipes for you to freshen up with (on request) before your service begins. Although we will prep your bikini area and remove surface bacteria before your treatment, it's makes the session much more pleasant for you and your waxing specialist when you arrive 'fresh & clean'.

 

Do I need to trim my hair down there before I arrive?

No.  We'll take care of that for you in our treatment room.  In fact, we advise you not to trim or cut the hair because you may risk trimming it too short for waxing.


Can I get waxed if I’m having my period?

Sure, we can absolutely wax you when Aunt Flo’s in town. Just be aware that the area is often more sensitive during this time, so you may experience more discomfort than usual. In order to successfully complete the service, you will need to wear a tampon.

 

Is it safe to have a Brazilian Wax while pregnant?

First, congratulations! Second, yes, you can still wax. However, you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. Our Wax Specialists will make you as comfortable as possible during the service. We recommend checking with your doctor during the last two months of pregnancy.
