Preparing for Your Brazilian Wax
The ideal length for hair is about ¼ inch or 6 mm (about as long as a grain of rice) – if your hair is longer, it may require trimming which will extend the length of your visit.
If you’re a shaver, you should wait at least 3 weeks after using your razor or else the hair will be too short. Often, shavers come in and their hair isn’t long enough. We don’t like sending anyone home (especially after they have built up enough courage to come in!), but we can’t wax unless the hair is at this ideal length.
What to Do Before Your First Brazilian Appointment
First things first, relax! In order to make the process more enjoyable, here are a few things you can do:
Take a warm shower before your wax to open up your pores
Use a loofah to exfoliate your skin and prevent ingrown hairs
Avoid gels, lotions and oils before your wax as it may interfere with hair removal
Avoid tanning 24 hours before your wax
Scan your skin before to ensure it is free from cuts, scrapes, moles, and skin tags
Many guests apply a gentle numbing cream 45-Minutes before their session to ensure a more pleasant experience. We offer “No Scream Cream Numbing Cream” which you can purchase before your session by calling 724-205-6387.
After and Between Sessions
We recommend using after-wax lotions and exfoliators to help keep the skin smooth, soft and free from bumps and ingrown hairs.
What NOT to do after your Brazilian Wax:
We recommend steering clear of prolonged exposure to heat 1-2 days after a Brazilian wax (direct sun, saunas, steam rooms, tanning beds, etc.) – it is important, as your skin will be more prone to burning. Additionally, you will want to avoid unnecessary friction and tight clothing.
How often should I be waxed?
Each guest is unique with different hair growth patterns. As a general rule, every 4 weeks is the recommendation. It is much easier, quicker, and more comfortable to simply maintain a Brazilian Wax. For your convenience, we offer packages.
Package of 3 Brazilian Waxes: $180
Package of 6 Brazilian Waxes: $330
