Waxing

It is a myth that shaving your hair means that it grows back thicker! Shaving hairs blunts the ends making it appear thicker & feel prickly when growing back. When you wax your hairs it removes them fully & the new hairs that grow back are softer & finer than if you were to shave them. Depending on your hair growth cycle, waxing can last up to 4 weeks & if done regularly enough it can lead to hair growth reduction.

Waxing is a great way to keep smoother skin for longer. You will get the best results from your waxing treatment if your hairs are a quarter of an inch long or similar in length to a grain of rice.  

Waxing treatments are usually carried out on a portable massage table or whenever you are most comfortable. Waxing treatments consist of a consultation, preparation of your skin, waxing, aftercare treatment & aftercare advice. I use a soft honey wax, sensitive rose wax & cold wax strips depending on your skin type & area of waxing. 

* A no double-dipping policy is followed, meaning each time the spatula is dipped into the wax, once it has been applied to your skin it is then disposed of. This is to maintain the highest hygiene standards & to prevent any cross contamination. *
