With summer finally here you may begin to wonder if there is a better way to be hair free during the warmer months than having to get the dreaded razor
out on a regular basis.
Waxing is a form of semi permanent hair removal which removes hair from the root.
This allows for smooth, hair free skin for several weeks before the hair begins to grow back.
It’s extremely important that this procedure is carried out by a fully qualified therapist who ‘knows their waxes’!
Strip wax is applied thinly with a spatula then removed quickly with a paper strip. This is what most people recognise as waxing and is a fantastic way to remove hair thoroughly. However, as strip wax also removes the top layer of skin it is best suited to larger areas such as legs, back, chest, shoulders.
Hard, peelable wax, often referred to as ‘hot’ wax, is much thicker in consistency. It is also applied with a spatula but shrink wraps around the hair leaving the skin in tact, thus reducing the ‘ouch’ factor. I absolutely love this wax and use it exclusively for all male and female intimate waxing plus all facial waxing including nostrils and ears.
Not all waxes are created equal! It’s very common to have your waxing carried out using run-of-the-mill salon waxes, such as brown honey wax, as this is what students in beauty schools commonly use when training. There’s nothing wrong with this but the waxing industry has boomed in recent years and now there is a plethora of luxury waxes which have recently hit the market. Whilst more expensive, these luxury waxes contain oils and soothing ingredients to protect the clients’ skin for a more comfortable wax whilst providing superior grip and removal of really short hairs, potentially allowing for more time between waxes for most clients which actually makes the treatment more cost effective in the long run.
So why wax?
- Skin is smoother, and dare I say Sexier!
- Tattoos appear more vibrant when hair has been waxed from the area.
- As for intimate waxing, well, no one wants to look like they’ve got half a pack of Golden Virginia hanging out of their bikini bottoms- hee hee, do they?!
Why Intimate hair removal
Its more hygienic (I’ve not met a single person, male or female, who likes having a hairy bum) and Brazilians and Hollywood’s aren’t just for women! Male grooming is one of the largest growth areas in the beauty industry.
Men from all walks of life are having intimate waxing. Keen gym bunnies, cyclists and sports players experience less chafing, partners often prefer a ‘cleaner’ look and waxed skin feels cooler.
If you’re considering intimate waxing for the first time but don’t want everything removed, don’t worry, pricing is structured to allow you to decide if they want a basic wax or everything off.
Nostrils, ears, lips, cheekbones, underarms to basic bikini also male and female Hollywood’s,
There’s not much that can’t be waxed!
