Getting Waxed on Your Period

period waxCan I have a wax whilst on a Period? Our answer is YES! Yes, you can get waxed whilst you’re having your period.

Periods. They can turn up unexpectedly and if you’ve got a wax booked we don’t want you to have to cancel or reschedule. So here is our guide to having a wax whilst you’re having your period.

Sorry, not sorry

We don’t want you to apologise. There really is no need. Having periods are a normal part of most women’s lives and we want to make you feel great. It’s our job and we want to do it well.

Wearing a Tampon

If you use tampons just wear one as normal, we will work around the string. We have tampons for our clients in the bathroom if you have been taken by surprise.

Wearing a Pad

If you wear a pad just let your therapist know and we will leave you to prepare alone with intimate wipes. We have a sanitary bin in the Client toilet if you wish to change your pad before or after your waxing treatment. We also keep a well stocked bathroom for clients where you’ll find pads if you need them.

We’re seing more and more of these, which is great as they are reusable so cheaper in the long run and better ecologically too! If you use a menstrual cup just wear as normal. If you’re interested in trying one out here’s a couple links.

Period Pants

These are leakproof knickers that are super absorbant and can be re washed. If you wear these, let us know and we will leave you to get ready with Intimate wipes. Our clients have reccomended the following Period pants to us if you’re interested in trying them out.

Wuka

What happens if I bleed on the bed? Not alot! We wipe the bed down as normal. We know there is alot of stigma attached to period blood but not in our salon. We don’t feel it’s unhygenic or dirty, the fact that it comes from your vagina is irrellevant.

Just for you!

Will waxing hurt more if I’m on a period? We can find no evidence to suggest so.
