FAQ

Q: How should I prepare for my wax? 

A: Exfoliate your skin the day before your appointment. For best results, the hair length should be at least 1/4 inch long (this is about the size of a grain of rice, or 3-4 weeks worth of hair growth). Avoid shaving or using any other hair removal methods between appointments as this may compromise the quality of the wax. 

Q: I’m pregnant. Can I still get a wax? 

A: Of course. If you’re pregnant, your skin might be more sensitive than usual, so keep that in mind when scheduling a bikini wax or a full body wax.  

Q: What kind of wax do you use?  

A: We use premium quality hot wax for the intimate areas: this makes the waxing process significantly less painful as the hot wax won’t stick to the skin. The hot wax is also perfect for getting rid of the very fine hairs, while also gently exfoliating the skin. 

Q: Does waxing hurt? 

A: We are not going to lie: waxing can be a bit uncomfortable, depending on your pain tolerance. Our technicians are specifically trained in best-in-class techniques to make the process as speedy, efficient and painless as possible. 

Q: Can I shave between waxes? 

A: Please don’t shave between waxing appointments as this causes inconsistent waxing results. Shaving desynchronises the hair growth cycle and may result in fuzz and stubbles left after the waxing. 

Q: Can I wax if I’m on Accutane retin-a? 

A: This might make the skin more sensitive and easily peel-able. Please inform your therapist if you’re on this (or any other medications). 

Q: Can I wax if I have my period? 

A: Absolutely, as long as you have a tampon in.  

Q: How long should I wait between waxes? 

A: Ideally, you should leave between 4 and 6 weeks between your waxing appointments, depending on your hair’s growth rate. 

Q: I can already feel stubble. Does this mean my hair is already growing back? 

A: Poor waxing technique can potentially break the hair and even result in excess in-grown hairs. However, at Wax It, we only employ highly-trained and experienced therapists that ensure all hairs are removed from the follicles. If you’re experiencing stubbles or hair fuzz soon after your appointment, it may be due to shaving and hair cycles, as the hair grows at different stages.
