FAQs

Will it make my hair grow back thicker?

Absolutely not. Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as course.

Will waxing make my hair grow back darker?

Your hair does not grow back darker when you cut it or shave it. Neither will your depilitated hair. Waxing will not change the pigment of your hair.

Is waxing painful?

Depending on your level of sensitivity and how course your hair is. If your hair is course then the root of the hair will be thick. Pulling a thick hair out from its cozy follicle isn’t going to be comfortable. For most, it’s not as bad as they imagined.

Will my skin become red and irritated?

It depends on your sensitivity and if the root of your hair is particularly large. It is normal to turn red and for the skin to develop small, red bumps everywhere. This is only temporary and usually only lasts for 24 hours.

Brazillian Wax Information & Tips


The “Brazilian” differs from a regular bikini wax because hair is removed in the front, back and everything in between. Some variations include leaving a “landing strip” or small patch in the front, but this is personal preference.

Time Required: Approximately 30 minutes. First timers may require more time.

The procedure, like any waxing, can be painful at first, but frequent visits usually cut down on the pain factor as does 2 Ibuprofen and an antihistamine an hour before your procedure.


Hair length: If the hair has been shaved please allow 2 – 3 weeks of growth prior to removal. The closer to 3 weeks the better, it will reduce waxing discomfort.   The longer hair provides for better wax adhesion.  

DO NOT TRIM your hair before your appointment; if this needs to be done I will do it prior to waxing.  It is much better for the hair to be longer than necessary, if it’s too short the wax cannot grab hair effectively, once again leading to increased discomfort.

Waxing occurs in a private room with a door. After a consultation, you’ll be left alone to undress from the waste down and lay on a table with clean sheets and cover up with a towel. A test patch of wax will be applied and removed. If you choose to continue this process is repeated in small areas until all hair is removed. 

You will remain partially covered at all times. I will move the towel to expose only the area being waxed. Your comfort is my main concern. You will need to re position your legs during the waxing treatment to accommodate the area being waxed and also position yourself on your side for hair between your buttocks to be removed. Yes, for most people, hair grows there. (Don’t worry it’s not as bad as it sounds)

I wax using a hard wax that is applied to the skin and peeled off when it has cooled. This wax adheres to the hair and not the skin and makes waxing less painful.


Once the waxing is complete, any stray hairs will be tweezed.  The area will once again be treated with an astringent and a soothing lotion will be applied over the waxed area

NOTE: I CAN AND HAVE DONE BRAZILIAN WAXES WHILE WOMEN ARE MENSTRUATING.....DON'T RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT FOR MY SAKE.

I haven't been waxed before, what should I know and could I just do a test patch?

If you are timid about waxing, ask the salon if they could do a small patch on your lower leg. It will give you an idea if you will be red, bumpy and sensitive and you’ll understand what kind of pain is involved. Also, you’ll be able to tell if you have an allergic reaction, which in my experience has never happened.

A few suggestions:

  1. Take an Ibuprofen and an Antihistamine about 30 minutes prior to your waxing appointment as this will help reduce inflammation, redness  and pain.

  2. Try to relax! Close your eyes and take deep breaths. Because when you tense up, believe it or not, your follicles constrict as well, causing some resistance.

  3. Remember that just prior to menstruation or during menstruation, you are the more sensitive, however it is not a reason to reschedule, I wax women in all areas during menstruation.

  4. If you are pregnant this can also cause a bit more sensitivity.

  5. It is normal for those who have course hair to follicle bleed, so don’t worry if it happens. It’s quite normal.

  6. Accutane and Retin take note. Both thin the skin and can cause the skin to lift or remove during waxing. If you have used either recently and would like to wax, you must notify the spa so a test path can be performed.  It is recommended to be off of the accutane for at least 6 months and Retin A for 5 days to 1 week.

  7. Do not wax the same day that you have done heavy exfoliation (Chemical peel) or been exposed to tanning bed or direct sun. This will lift the skin as well. My recommendation is to wait about a week after a chemical peel to wax.

  8. Do not expose recently waxed skin to the sun or tanning beds, as the waxed skin in likely to burn.  It is recommended to wait 24 to 48 hours before sun exposure.
