When you shave frequently, have you noticed the area becomes dark? Especially for your under arm area and your bikini area? Well, this is actually caused by your skin reacting to the razor blades themselves.There are several remedies to take care of this issue, but the best is to just avoid shaving all together. When you wax, you are removing the first layer of skin, and ripping the hair from the follicle. This is why it takes longer for the hair to grow back (3-4 weeks), and since there are no razors involved, no dark spots! So avoid the Dark Side, and call us today to talk about your waxing options!
1. Does it hurt?
Bikini waxing does hurt, but how much depends on your pain tolerance. We have clients that sleep while getting waxed, and we have clients who feel more pain. One thing that will help with the pain is if you wax routinely and not shave in between sessions. When you shave, the hair grows back thicker and will in turn be more painful for you, however when you wax, the follicle thins out and is less painful upon removal. Another thing that might help is to take 2 Tylenol a half hour to an hour before your visit, but most clients don’t need to do this.
2. How long should hair be before I get waxed?
If you shave, you should wait at least 2 weeks before coming in for a wax. The longer the hair, the easier it is for the esthetician to remove all of it with little to no tweezing. If trimming is needed, the esthetician will do so at the time of the appointment.
3. What should I know before waxing for the first time
a. It might be painful at first, but it will get easier with time as your hair thins out.
b. You will be hairless for at least a week, with growth starting at about 2 weeks.
4. How often should I wax?
Due to the natural cycle of hair growth, it is recommended that you come in every three to four weeks to get waxed. Normally people go about a week with no hair, and then at the end of the second week, you start to notice hair growth. Of course, this varies in each case, but this is the average. We recommend coming every 3-4 weeks, because it is when the hair is long enough to be waxed, but not too long where it will hurt like it did the first time! This also makes it easier for the esthetician, since the hair is easier to be removed and the esthetician can work quickly and efficiently, and it's more comfortable for the client.
5. Do men get waxed too?
YES! It is very normal for guys to get waxed! Male waxing being "taboo" is a thing of the past! Guys come in all the time to get anything from their eyebrows to their legs waxed and everything in between! Manscaping is a growing trend, and guys love the feel of their own skin being smooth and hairless! Most guys come in for the first time very timid and nervous, telling us they're just curious and want to try it. Yet, after that first time, they're hooked and come in for a wax every month!

We often times get asked to get creative with our clients, and design a surprise for their significant other. Above are a few of the designs we've done in the past, with the heart being the most intricate. See, Brazilian Waxing can be tailored to your specific desires; it doesn't have to be all or nothing. You can get a classic Strip, or even a triangle just to spice things up or if you're feeling extra creative. Some people prefer to get a shape because it means less hair being removed, which for some mean less pain. Each person has their own likes and dislikes, and while the most popular is still the bare-all Full Brazilian, once in a while, we have found that our clients like to go the extra mile and "prune the hedges" a little differently. So what is your favorite style? Have you ever asked for the heart shape? Or do you prefer to take it all off? Let us know below!
The Male Brazilian Wax. Yes, Men get their hair down there waxed, and yes it's much more common than you would think. The definition of the Male Brazilian Wax is the complete removal of the hair from a man's intimate area from front to back (or as others have coined it, from sac to crack.) Jaira herself traveled to London to learn the latest Manscaping techniques, and learned from some of the world's best estheticians on how to perfect the Boy-Zilian! In places such as Europe and Australia, the Brazilian Wax isn't as taboo as people in the States may think it is! And Brazilian Waxing is something men should embrace and consider trying at least once! We have had clients (from all ages) come in and get the Brazilian Wax, and fall in love with it. It leaves your skin smooth and hairless for at least two weeks and for most men who try to shave or use other methods, the Brazilian Wax is simply a godsend. But men aren't stopping there! These days guys want to get their backs waxed, their eyebrows done and even remove their underarm hair, and the trend is only going to grow. Because more and more men are realizing that waxing can be enjoyed by both men and women, and that it is a much better alternative to shaving every day. So to all you guys out there, summer is coming up, and we would like to encourage all of you to try a waxing service at one of our locations!
