Preparation Before Your Bikini Waxing Procedure Begins.
If it is your first wax or you have not waxed for a long time, then trim your hair to about half an inch. Do not go lower as the wax will not grab onto the hair properly.
Ideally, you should try and take a hot bath an hour or two before the procedure to soften hair and for hygiene.
Also, if you’re unfamiliar with the slight, albeit minimal, pain involved in most waxing procedures, you might want to take some pain reliever 30 minutes prior to your waxing appointment.
Once in the procedure room, you will be asked to remove clothing from the waist down. You will be have a towel available for discretion should you need it.
Our waxing practitioner will leave the room to let you remove your clothes. You will then lay on the waxing table with a towel beneath you and maybe have a towel covering your front.
Call out when ready. Your resident Waxpert will walk in and show you how to situate yourself. She will also talk you through the process. She will sanitise her hands, put on surgical gloves and proceed to clean the area to be waxed with antiseptic. Your waxing expert will then do a test waxing usually at the top of your thighs to see if your skin reacts.
If everything goes well, we will apply an oil blend to prevent wax from sticking to their skin. Using hard wax, your Waxpert will then use a wooden applicator to apply the wax while still warm to a strip of hair.
When it cools, it will attach to your pubic hair and will be pulled away quickly coming off with the hair. When using soft wax, a wooden applicator will still be used to apply wax to a patch of hair.
A non woven strip will be rubbed into the wax and then will be pulled quickly coming off with the hair. The wax and applicator will be disposed of.
Bikini Waxing is a great way of removing large amounts of hair at a time. It is also long lasting. Depending on which style you select (Hollywood, Brazilian, French (a.k.a. ‘Landing Strip’), full bikini line trim, touch-up, etc.. the resutant shape and outcome will naturally vary, but we guarantee your complete satisfaction here at Araya Beauty.
- Shaving will have hair growing back in a few days while waxing extends it to between 2 to 8 weeks.
- This is because shaving only cuts the hair from the skin surface while waxing removes it from its roots.
- Waxing over long periods has hair growing back softer.
- Shaving on the other hand will have hair growing back in a rough stubble.
