  • X-BIKINI

Our two types of wax: Strip Wax and Sensitive Hot Wax

Strip Wax

Our fast and effective strip wax for larger areas of the body removes short and stubborn hairs quickly and easily! Our strip wax contains minerals to help soothe and calm the skin, to assist in rapid recovery.

Sensitive Hot Wax

We’ve formulated a unique wax used for sensitive areas of the body, such as the bikini area or face, without compromising on efficiency!

Our Sensitive Hot Wax applies in a thin film, stripping the hairs you can see, and the fine vellus hairs you can’t see! It has the grip of strip wax but is made to be gentle on the skin, and can help reduce redness and skin breakouts. Our Sensitive Hot Wax is vegan and cruelty free.

Things you need to know before getting waxed

How to prepare:

1-2 days before:

  • Lightly exfoliate the area 24-48 hours prior to your appointment to remove dead skin.
  • Moisturise your skin on the days before, but do not apply moisturiser on the day of your waxing as it will interfere with your results.

On the day:

  • Hairs should be about ½ a centimetre long (about the length of a grain of rice). Do not shave before your appointment. You may trim the area carefully, but please make sure you don’t trim the hairs too short.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing after waxing to avoid irritation caused by rubbing.

You will have soft and smooth hair free skin for up to two weeks. After this, the slowly returning hairs will be softer and lighter. Most of our clients see us every 3 – 6 weeks, depending on their hair growth rate and personal preference!

Waxing Aftercare:

Your skin will be slightly pink and spotty post waxing and may feel a little irritated. Don’t worry! This will go away overnight and the end results are well worth it!

Immediate after:

  • Your Beauty Therapist will apply a cooling gel or lotion immediately after waxing to help soothe and calm your skin.
  • Avoid hot showers, saunas, swimming, strenuous exercise or lying in the sun for at least 24 hours after your wax.

1-2 days after:

  • Continue your regular moisturising routine, but avoid any exfoliation.
  • We recommend using IngroStopper after all waxing to soften the hair follicle and help prevent ingrown hairs.

1 week after:

  • Your exfoliation routine can begin again, and make sure you continue to moisturise. Enjoy your wax!

Getting the best results from waxing

What is the Shaving Effect?

If you are new to waxing, or are coming in for a wax after regular shaving, it may take a few appointments for your hair growth cycle to be in sync. This is because the hairs all over our body are constantly going through cycles of growth, rest and shedding.

After you’ve shaved, the hairs in the growing phase will grow out long enough to be waxed, however the hairs which were in the resting stage when you shaved will stay the same, close to the surface of the skin. The wax will only remove those growing hairs, and the resting hairs will begin to shed naturally. This can make it seem like your wax didn’t last long, but consistency is key! Getting regular waxes will ensure all your hairs are in the growing phase when they are removed, giving you longer lasting results!

The benefits of regular waxing

Not only will you maintain your great results from having regular waxes, your hair will grow back progressively finer and sparser. This is because the wax removes the hair from the root, causing the hair follicle to weaken each time. These finer hairs also mean there is no itchiness or prickliness as your hair is regrowing. Waxing also gently exfoliates your skin, and while it will never take the place of regular exfoliation, it can help to brighten the surface of your skin and enhance smoothness.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Read More FAQs
Do you offer waxing for men?

Yes! Our trained Beauty Therapists specialise in waxing for both men and women. Male hair can be thicker and denser in some areas, making them more prone to ingrown hairs. We highly recommend the use of Ingro Stopper after all male waxing, to soften the follicle and gently exfoliate, reducing the risk of ingrown hairs.

How often should I get waxed?

As a general rule, we recommend waxing every 4-6 weeks, as this allows enough time for your hair to reach the length needed before being removed. However, everyone’s hair growth rate is different, so some people may find that they need to make their appointments closer together, which is totally normal!

What are the benefits of face waxing?

Face waxing leaves your skin silky and smooth for 2-3 weeks! By removing thick, stubborn growth and all the fine vellus hairs, it makes the perfect blank canvas for makeup. Waxing also removes all hairs from the root, causing the hair follicles to weaken over time, which eventually leads to less growth!  Facial waxing also assists in the absorption of skincare, as no product is left on the surface surrounding the hairs.
