HARD WAX OR SOFT WAX (STRIP WAX)? WHICH IS BEST FOR YOUR BIKINI WAX?
Any esthetician worth her salt knows that one type of wax does NOT suit alll. We use a variety of waxes in our treatment room to fit the needs of our client. Of Course, we ALWAYS use hard wax on our Brazilian Bikini Clients, but even then, a bit of soft wax is sometimes needed. Not to fret though, we would NEVER EVER use soft wax on our clients more tender areas. The type and texture of hair, as well as the degree of skin sensitivity are just a few factors we take into consideration when determining which type of wax will work best. As expert waxers, we make this determination with ease! Don't settle ladies, the wrong type of wax, used in the wrong area, with the wrong technique, will make the difference between discomfort and real pain ! We know this because we truly specialize in bikini waxing! We don't divide our time between waxing and facials which seems to be the norm with waxing salons today! We do one thing and do it right!
WHY SHOULD I WAX INSTEAD OF SHAVE FOR MY UPCOMING VACATION?
Simply put, waxing produces wonderfully silky smooth skin! Who wants to deal with razor burn, rashes, and itchy scratchy regrowth on vacation? Not us! Plus, as you embark on your waxing journey, you will find your hair becomes softer and finer with every wax. When you keep a regular waxing schedule (every 4 weeks), only a third of your hair grows back! Yes, less grows back and its softer and finer! How fab is that? Trust us, waxing is the best!!
SO WHAT IS DOUBLE DIPPING ANYWAY?
Double dipping is, sadly, a very common practice among many salons today. To cut costs, one stick is used repeatedly throughout a waxing treatment. Often times, that same stick that was used on you, was used on the clients before you, after you, and most likely will continue to be used for days or weeks on end. The result is a pot of funky contaminated wax! So gross!
Keep your eyes open ladies, as this practice is used just as much in high-end salons, spas and resorts, to cut costs, as it is in smaller salons.
At A Fabulous Wax, Petite Specialty Waxing Studio, we are appalled with such practices! Our medical-grade sticks are dipped into sterile wax once, applied to our client, then quickly discarded. It's very common for us to use 25 or more sticks per session depending on your treatment. Yes, it does raise our costs, but the health and safety of you our client, is of utmost importance. When you visit our studio, you will find that our standards of cleanliness are impeccably high.
WHAT IF THE DOOR IS LOCKED?
Because we are a small studio, we may from time to time lock the door while we are with a client. This protects us from your session being disrupted. Of course if you have an appointment, the door will always be open to you. Please feel free to come in, grab a magazine, some water and if you're 20 minutes early, apply your Numb-It.
CAN I BRING MY DAUGHTER IN FOR A WAXING SESSION?
Absolutely, bring your daughter! Your son can tame that uni-brow too! However, as a parent you will be asked to come into the treatment room for the duration of the procedure as well as sign and date a parental consent form. As swimming competitions have gained more popularity, it has become common for girls in their mid to late teens (15-17 yrs old) to wax their bikini area for competitions. Unfortunately, our clients must be 18 years old to receive a bikini wax.
