see you in 4 weeks.

Remember: No shaving in-between appointments.

 

Ever wonder why people say they get waxed every 4 weeks?! They don't say it just to say it. There are some scientific facts behind it:

Instead of using really big words to describe what happens, here's a little break-down:

Let's say this is your first wax. You wait the exact two weeks after you have shaved for your upcoming appointment. During that wax, the hair that is being removed is in a stage where it is most "loose" in the hair follicle.

During your wax, the more "bleed spots" you have, the less likely those hairs will come back. Technically, those hairs are being completely ripped out of the hair follicle. These bleed spots are normal. Your pores aren't necessarily bleeding, it's just a term used when the hair has totally been removed from the bulb that it sits in.

After your wax, the hair that grows back is going to be very fine. If you are consistent enough, the hairs can stop growing back.

Have you ever felt a little leftover stubble after getting waxed?

That's because some of the hairs left behind were still in the early stage and weren't quite ready. With regular waxing every 3 to 4 weeks, you are more than likely to get your hair on the same growing cycle, allowing for optimal waxing results.

Hair grows in 3 stages and it can take up to 4 waxes before all of the hair is on the same growth cycle, hence they all come out together. Your first wax may not remove all the hair, it may last only one week, it may last up to three – it just depends on your own genetics, how recently and often you’ve shaved, and how well you do at preparing the skin before the wax and taking care of the skin between your treatments.

Don’t be discouraged if your hair doesn’t stay gone too long the first few times. The more you wax the longer it will last.

Please don’t shave, tweeze or use hair removal creams in between waxing appointments as this interrupts the hairs natural growth cycle!
