First Bikini Wax? No Problem at Root Hair & Beauty!
You might have heard some horror stories from your friends and you might be scared while reading this. But, hey! Here at Root Hair & Beauty, we are true wax experts and we can promise that you are going to leave our premises, not only beautiful, smooth and soft like a baby, but also without tears in your eyes.
This is an article about your first bikini wax, but we do all sort of wax treatments, check all our other waxing services (for boys and girls) and book your appointment online or just come and say hi in store!
But, let’s start from the beginning…
3 reasons why bikini waxing is the new black
1 SMOOTHER THAN EVER SKIN
Since you are removing the hair right from its root, you will soon feel your skin smoother than a baby bum. Most certainly, it will be smoother than you ever had it before.
2 HEALTHY SKIN
Most people don’t realise that while you are waxing, you are also removing the dead skin that naturally stays on the surface. So yeah, two in one, isn’t that great?
3 HAIRLESS FOR LONGER
Again, since you are removing the hair from the root, it will take ages (well, let’s say a few weeks at least!) to grow back. Waxing DEFINITELY lasts longer than shaving.
OUR DOS AND DON’TS OF BIKINI WAXING
If you practice meditation, you won’t have any problems. The calmer you can keep the mind, the lesser you will feel the pain. So…
- Don’t tan the area you plan to wax 24 to 48 hours before your waxing
- Don’t consume alcohol or lots of coffee before your appointment. They cause your pores to tighten, resulting in a more uncomfortable experience.
THE BIKING WAXING AT ROOT STEP BY STEP
When you arrive at a Root Hair and Beauty, you’ll be greeted by one of our staff who will check you in, answer any questions that you have before introducing you to your waxing specialist. All of our staff are licensed professionals so you’ll be in super-safe hands!
After removing your clothes, we cleanse the area to remove any substance, cream or oil that might alter the wax effect.
Next, we protect the skin with our soothing pre-wax oil.
Then, it’s time for your wax. We only use organic products for our waxing services which are guaranteed for their quality and safety.
Finally, we rejuvenate the area by applying a special treatment to help prevent and clear ingrown hairs and breakouts as well as calm and nourish the skin.
#1 Like most things in life, consistency pays off. Once you’ve done your first wax, you’ll see that every waxing appointment will get easier. The reason is that the hair root weakens with every wax and for you, that means a more pleasant experience.
#2 Wear comfortable cotton panties to avoid irritation if it’s your first time receiving a bikini wax.
AFTER YOUR FIRST BIKINI WAX
Because hairs grow in different cycles, your first wax will remove the hair that has grown on the skin and at your following wax appointments will remove the hairs that were still growing below the surface. After a few treatments, your hairs should all be growing at the same cycle so that you will get longer lasting results and super soft skin most of the time.
DO NOT SHAVE. EVER. AGAIN.
As mentioned above, consistency pays off, so once you’ve done it the first time, get rid of all your razors and don’t ever fall into that trap again. The hairs get stronger and thicker every time you shave so when you’ll go back to our beauty therapist, your wax will still be painful. Remember that shaving between waxes also makes your skin itchy and exposed to ingrown hairs.
MOISTURIZE. MOISTURIZE. MOISTURIZE.
Moisturizing daily between services is a must. Use a natural product – we L O V E – the entire skincare [ comfort zone ] line by Davines (you can read more here
) and we recommend their skin care line for your after waxing care (you can also purchase them in store on Exmouth Market).
There you go! Welcome to the future, welcome to smooth, soft skin!
