5 FAQ on Waxing, Boston, Massachusetts

Waxing is a salon service beloved by women and men. If you’ve never had this done before, you may have many questions about it. To help prepare you for your upcoming appointment, here are answers to a few you might have.

Frequently Asked Questions About Waxing

Which areas of the body can be waxed?

While it typically depends on the type of salon services your location offers, most parts of the body can be waxed. This includes the eyebrows, cheeks, upper lip, bikini line, arms, legs, back, stomach, hands, feet, and underarms. 

How long does hair need to be for a session?

salon servicesWaxing works best when hair is a certain length. It should be at least a quarter-inch long so the strip and product can cling to it. After you undergo a few waxing sessions, the hair may become thinner and you can have it waxed at a shorter length. 

What should I do before the session?

If possible, refrain from bathing before heading to the salon, which makes hair softer and harder to grip. 

How much discomfort should I expect?

Waxing does sting a bit when the strip is initially removed, but it’s much like ripping off a bandage. The stinging sensation is temporary. Some people choose to take over-the-counter pain relievers before their sessions to minimize discomfort. Waxing also tends to become less painful over time as the hairs grow thinner. 

How often can I undergo waxing sessions?

Salon services typically recommend that you schedule an appointment every four weeks or so. This gives the hair enough time to grow back to the ideal length.
