What areas are the least painful areas to wax?
Underarm, nose, brow, areolas/nipples, glutes. This depends on your usual hair removal method. If you’ve been waxing for a while, legs, arms, even Brazilian waxes are a breeze! If you’ve shaved since your last wax or it’s your first time, it can sting and be more uncomfortable. When you begin to ONLY wax an area, as opposed to jumping back and forth from waxing to shaving, each time you wax becomes less and less painful. Your hair becomes weaker and usually begins to grow less. A fine, weak hair is going to hurt a lot less when you pull it out than a thick, coarse hair with a blunt tip that has been shaved or never disturbed before.
Is there anything I can do to make waxing hurt less?
Some clients find that taking an ibuprofen before their treatment helps a little. Also, allowing the hair to grow a little longer than the required ¼ inch can help a little by reducing the amount of times we need to go over the area. Once you’ve begun waxing, the one thing you can do to reduce the pain is to STAY ON SCHEDULE with your appointments.
Do I need to trim the hair?
No. My technique and type of wax actually perform better with longer hair.
