We at Solaire look forward to your visit! If you scheduled a waxing appointment, you can trust that you will be in the hands of professionals. However, for those of you who would like to prepare before you arrive at Solaire, here are some tips to make the most of your waxing appointment:
- Exfoliate your skin: If the dead, dry skin is removed from the area you would like waxed, it will be easier for the wax to adhere to the hair and not tug at your skin. However, be sure not to exfoliate too roughly!
- Let the hair grow: We know it isn’t fun to walk around with hairy legs, but make sure your body hair is between one-eighth of an inch to a quarter of an inch before your appointment. In other words, allow for about two weeks’ worth of the growth. If the hair is too short, the wax will not be able to grip it. On the flip side, if the hair is too long, it will be much more painful for you.
- Moisturize: Keep your waxing area well-hydrated and moisturized to keep the skin supple before your appointment. However, skip moisturizing the day of your appointment. It can make the hair more difficult for the wax to grip.
- Check for cuts or moles: If you have any cuts or moles where you will be waxing, be sure to mention them to your waxer so he or she is prepared to work carefully to avoid damaging your skin.
Now that you are prepared for your waxing appointment, get ready to relax and enjoy all of our spa services, from our wine bar, to a manicure, to a facial. Call Solaire today to discover how we can pamper you from head to toe.
