Getting a Wax for the First Time? 4 Tips for Beginners, Rochester, New York

Shaving takes time and effort, only to have the hair grow back quickly. Waxing removes hair from the roots instead of the surface to leave you with smooth skin for up to a month. If you’re getting one for the first time, follow these tips to make it a seamless process.

Top 4 Waxing Tips for Newbies

1. Let Your Hair Grow

Give us at least 2 weeks growth. The longer the better. 

2. Avoid Caffeine & Hydrate 

Limit caffeine consumption on the day of your appointment since the stimulant can increase nerve sensitivity and make the waxing more painful. And HYDRATE. The more hydrated you are, the better you hair will come out.

3. Stay Out of the Sun

Avoid a sunburn on the freshly waxed skin by protecting the area from UV rays for 24 hours. Reduce any swelling with our No Trauma Momma Cream.

4. Exfoliate

Avoid exfoliating scrubs for the first 48 hours after your session to prevent skin irritation. Exfoliate twice weekly with our Soft Grain Scrub once sensitivity has subsided to keep open skin pores free of clogging oils and dirt.
