Waxing Upkeep & After care

How often will I need to wax?
If you’re ready to bin the razor for good and move over to waxing, we recommend every 4 weeks for best results. This helps get the hair growing in the same cycle and gives you a longer lasting result. Over time your hair growth will slow down and get thinner so you can enjoy a longer gap between waxes…your waxer will advise you of this.

Can I shave in between waxing appointments?
NO! Read our beginners guide to waxing to learn why.

What cream should I use after a wax?
Tea tree body icing which is available in our salon to purchase. Please read our aftercare blog here for more information.

How can I avoid getting Ingrown hairs?
Follow aftercare advice and read our ingrown hair blog here.

Yes, BUT wait 48 hrs after waxing to get sprayed.
