YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED

WHY SHOULD I WAX/SUGAR VS. SHAVE?

Waxing/Sugaring done consistently will change your hair! It will come in sparser, finer & slower the longer you stick with it. Shaving cuts off the hair leaving stubble & feels prickly when growing in. It also can cause skin sensitivity & increase ingrowns. Plus, it doesn't change the thickness or quantity of hair. 

HOW DO I PREPARE?

Let it grow! Exfoliate. No tanning 24 hours before/after. Let us know about any topical products that contain retinols/AHAs and all medications. Take a deep breath. We have seen it all, we don't judge & we promise to be professional, efficient & thorough.  

HOW LONG DOES HAIR NEED TO BE?

Hair needs to be 1/4-1/2 inch for best results. Typically this is at least 2 weeks from last shave.   

HOW LONG WILL I BE HAIR-FREE?

This varies depending on the area waxed/sugared but you can expect to be hair-free for a minimum of 1-2 weeks. Underarms typically have a few hairs coming back week 2, Brazilians typically it will be week 3. New hairs are just that, new! So they have a soft tip & do not feel like stubble coming in.   

DOES IT HURT?

Everyone's pain tolerance is different. Most clients chat with us like we are out having coffee. But, let's be honest, we are pulling hair out from it's root. And you feel a short, stinging sensation after each pull. The good news is, it's short-lived discomfort. When you leave you have had a soothing cream applied & your skin is so smooth. If you are consistent with your waxing/sugaring the discomfort is greatly reduced too because there is less hair & thinner hair

HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?

Hair removal can be intimidating the first time. We get it! So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know. And if you still have questions give us a call 812-239-1114. 


Be warned, it's addictive being smooth & confident.

SHOULD I WAX/SUGAR FOR A SPECIAL EVENT?

Absolutely! We recommend coming 3 times before your wedding or special event. This ensures that you know how your skin reacts & you won't have to stress about the results. Smooth & confident is our goal. 

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER?

It is normal for your skin to be a little sensitive after hair removal. Any redness  or bumps should subside within 24 hours. Give your skin a break and avoid tanning/sun, hot baths, heavy creams and exfoliation for 48 hours after your service. Don't touch that razor. You have broken up with it!

HOW DO I PREVENT INGROWN HAIRS?

Keep your skin hydrated. & gently exfoliate a few day a week. This will help the hairs to push through the skin. There are a variety of products including scrubs, exfoliating mitts/pads, & ingrown hair inhibitor serums or wipes to help reduce this condition.

CAN I GET A WAX/SUGAR IF I'M ON MY PERIOD?

Yes. Just be aware that the increased hormones may cause you to be more sensitive. For Brazilian services please wear a tampon or cup.

CAN I GET A SERVICE IF I'M TAKING RETIN A, RENOVA OR ACCUTANE?

Please let us know if you are taking any of these! They increase how fast your skin exfoliates which raises the chance of removing skin. Many other medications, especially those that thin your blood or make you sensitive to sunlight may be contraindications. Here are some common ones that we need to be made aware of: Adapalene, Avita, Tazorac Avage, Proactiv, Differin, Strivect 

CAN SOMEONE BE IN THE TREATMENT ROOM WITH ME?

For body waxing/sugaring services we ask that no one else be in the treatment room. All other services it is up to the discretion of the client. Minors may be accompanied by a parent/guardian for any service. 

WHO CAN RECEIVE BRAZILIAN SERVICES?

At this time we are only trained to sugar/wax the nether regions of those with female anatomy. If you are transitioning and have female anatomy we got you. If you have male anatomy, we hope to be trained in the future but currently are not. Thanks for your understanding.
