How Often Will I Need to Wax?
We prefer you return when hairs are in "early anagen" stage. This is when the hairs begin to grow back, and is about 1/4th of an inch long. Many places recommend a standard 4-6 week protocol, but with our Unlimited memberships, we can see you sooner, keeping you smoother longer and reducing discomfort.
How Long Does My Hair Need to be?
We ask that you allow all stages of your hair to grow at least 1/4th of an inch. However, for a more thorough waxing, please allow your hair to grow for 2 weeks! (Please do not trim hair for us!)
What is the Deal with Double Dipping?
Double dipping is the practice of dipping the same stick in the wax more than once, thus contaminating the entire pot of wax (ew!). But not to worry, here at Bombshell, we use a new stick each dip!
How do I Care for the Area Afterwards?
Avoid touching waxed areas for 24 hours. Hands carry bacteria, even washed hands!
No sun or tanning bed exposure for at least 24 hours.
No hot showers or vigorous exercising for 24 hours after waxing.
Remember to exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! You need to remove dead skin cells so the hair can grow in naturally. Your waxologist will recommend a treatment plan for you that will include aftercare, cleansing products and hair growth inhibitors.
I'm Pregnant, Can I Still Get a Brazilian Wax?
Generally, it is medically safe to wax while pregnant. Please consult with your physician or doctor before booking a waxing appointment.
Can I Get a Brazilian Wax while on My Period?
Yes, of course! You must wear a clean tampon. If you're modest, you may tuck your string and we'll never even know. If you prefer to reschedule your appointment, we do ask for 6 hours notice as per our Cancellation Policy.
Can I Get a Brazilian Wax if I'm Transgendered?
Yes, absolutely! We are happy to serve everyone. You are welcome to schedule under the name and gender of which you identify, and our prices (unlike most places) do not change based on gender! With that in mind, if your gender identity and your genitals differ. we ask that you call in advance, simply so that we may ensure your waxologist is experienced with the service.
