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

Your Holiday Wax Guide will help get you Beach ready…
You’re going on Holiday, you don’t want to waste your time shaving every day so why not bite the bullet and let us wax you, you’ll be smooth and carefree to enjoy sea, sand and Sangria without the stubble. We are the experts in Waxing Top to Toe. We’ll give you great results whether you get waxed regularly or just once a year.
How long before my holiday should I wax?
We recommend coming in to see us for your holiday wax a full 48 hours before you jet off. Here’s why…Waxing removes hair from the root which temporarilly leaves the pore open. Any redness or plucked chicken skin will have subsided within 48 hours. Your freshly waxed skin needs to be kept cool and clean so having your wax a couple of days in advance allows a cooldown. We don’t recommend you swim straight after a wax as salt water and chlorinated water can irritate.
How long does my hair need to be?
We get asked this alot! You need to be brave and put down the razor 4 weeks before your appointment. You can get away with 2 weeks on your underarms but everywhere else it has to be 4 weeks. Growing the hair will give you the best wax results and be more comfortable. Our expert waxing therapists prefer you to be too hairy as we can easily trim but if you’re too short the wax won’t grip and you will get poor results.
When can I get a spray tan?
It’s best to wait 24 hours after your wax before you get a spray tan so your pores have closed.
Can I use the sunbeds and sunbathe after my Wax?
You absolutely must not expose your skin to sun or sunbeds in the first 48 hours after a wax. Waxing will act as an exfolliant so you will burn more easily immediatly after a wax. We advise you use a higher factor sunscreen to protect your skin for the first few days of your holiday.
How shall I care for my skin while I’m holiday?
We have some wonderful products available to help you care for your skin after a wax. Our Aloe vera gel will soothe any redness immediatly after your wax and may come in handy while you’re on holiday if you catch too much sun. We stock Ruff Stuff body scrub which is a natural blend of sugar and coconut oil, it will gently exfoliate dead skin cells whilst leaving coconut oil as a moisturiser to keep your skin soft. We will happily advise you on the products to suit your skin after a wax.
