After any brow treatments it is important that you follow pre and aftercare advice and any additional advice given to you by your brow artist to ensure the best possible treatment results.

  • What is waxing?
    Waxing is a type of hair removal that pulls hair out from the root. The hair growth cycle happens about every 28 days, so you should try and leave 2 - 4 weeks post your last shave and before your first wax. It takes about 3-5 consistent waxes (coming in every 4-6 weeks) to see every hair removed and growing in new at the same time. This means it takes about 3 waxes before you have the longest lasting wax! Waxing exposes an open pore, healing and aftercare are vital to ensure smooth, long lasting results. Waxing also exfoliates the skin removing dead layers and exposing new skin, is pertinent that you are gentle with the area for the best results. In short... waxing is a long lasting type of hair removal that leaves you with smooth and glowing skin!
  • How often should I get waxed?
    Every 4-6 weeks for the best results. With frequent and consistent waxing you will experience less hair growth overtime. DO NOT SHAVE IN BETWEEN or you will get a telling off!
  • How long should the hair be?
    At the brow job. we recommend for the hair to be as long as a grain of rice. If it is, you are most likely good to go for a wax! Coming in too early after shaving does not guarantee desirable wax results. It takes 3-4 weeks for the hairs to be in the stage for your most comfortable wax. No hair is too long (do not trim prior to your wax we will trim it for you if it needs trimming)! Hair grows in stages, a full cycle is about every 28 days, which is why we suggest waxing every 4 - 6 weeks depending on how quickly your hair grows. Each hair is at a different stage of the growth cycle at one time, this is why it takes a few consistent waxes to get all of the hairs out together at once. The more often you get waxed, the less grip it has to the follicle, thus making it an easier removal with each consistent wax. Since the hair is being completely removed root and all, new hair growth is greatly reduced and grows in at a finer texture. When you shave or tweeze in between waxes, you throw off the hairs growth cycle, further irritating the follicles and creating the perfect scenario for an ingrown hair.
  • What are ingrown hairs and why do I get them?
    Ingrown hairs are rubbish but sometimes, they happen (let's face it, one ingrown hair is better than a full on shaving rash!). An ingrown hair is when instead of growing through the skin, the hair gets trapped behind a clogged pore and grows under the skin, growing beneath the surface causing what looks like a spot. It is important to maintain consistent aftercare recommended by your wax specialist to avoid ingrown hairs and irritation, keeping your skin and hair healthy and moisturised. If bacteria and dead skin enters the pores, it can cause an infected ingrown hair, resulting in pus at the site. This is why we recommend avoiding any activities for 24 hours after your service that may hinder the quality of your wax - more about ingrown hair prevention in Aftercare info.
  • How do I prepare for a wax?
    No need to trim hair you think think it's too long remember we will do this for you. Too long is better than too short! Exfoliate and moisturise regularly but especially the day before . You may take a paracetamol an hour before your wax if you're worried it will hurt but to be honest... it's never anywhere near as bad as you think. Relaxxx... It our job to help you remain calm and comfortable. There is nothing we've never seen or experienced before whilst waxing. If at any point of the service you don’t feel comfortable just speak up! Feel free to ask any questions that may help put you at ease both before and during the service. Because of the different hair growth cycles, you may experience a little regrowth quickly after your very first wax. It's important to know that it is not the hair waxed already growing back, but another cycle that was still in the skin during waxing. Remember, It takes about 3 consistent waxes to get all of those hairs on the same cycle! Do not drink alcohol prior to waxing, alcohol is a stimulant which can cause the skin to be extra sensitive. Alcohol after? Definitely!
  • What can I expect after my wax?
    First, Hairless, smooth skin! Everyone's skin reacts differently to waxing, you can expect to have temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or two. Slight itchiness may be experienced especially after your very first treatments, proper post-wax care will alleviate this quickly. We have loads of products in our shop to help prevent regrowth, ingrown hairs and keep your skin hydrated and glowing!
  • Does it hurt?
    The honest truth is that pulling hair out from the root is going to give you discomfort. Like many things in life, the anticipation is much worse than the actual event. The best way to make your waxing experience less painful is to be regular – you will find that having frequent sessions, every 4 - 6 weeks, will not only allow you to have a better result but also it will be less painful. Reminder! There are 3 different stages of hair growth and each stage grows at the same pace. If our hair only had one stage of growth, then all the hair would grow together, fall out together and then, after a month, re-grow…that's what we aim to happen with the areas we wax (not so much our brows and the hairs on our head, if those were all on the same cycle we would be bald & brow-less).
  • Can I get a wax whilst pregnant?
    Yes! It is considered generally safe to get waxed while pregnant (as for anything while pregnant, always be cleared by your doctor if you have any concerns). Creating a little human is a lot of hard work. Shaving your bikini line and legs becomes nearly impossible as your baby (and belly) grows, and due to hormones, hair grows thicker and faster. Let's be real, shaving while pregnant is just not an option, but prioritising self care is. We encourage consistent waxing up until the end of your pregnancy. Waxing while pregnant can tend to feel a little more sensitive. Your body is producing extra blood and fluids to support your growing baby, that extra blood thins the skin making it more sensitive but, we have several ways to make your waxing experience more comfortable with a bump. And remember, pregnancy can have some unpleasant side effects and we see it all! Whether it's a swollen vulva or piles that you're suffering with we've seen it all before and there is nothing for you to feel embarrassed about.
  • Doesn't the hair come back darker and thicker?
    NO! This is a big fat NO! Totally FAKE NEWS, it actually does the opposite. It is scientifically impossible for hairs to get darker/thicker from waxing. In relation to shaving: When shaving, the blade cuts a sharp edge, this is often at the hairs thickest point of the shaft, not only does this create a 'thick feeling' of stubble, it also appears darker. When waxing continuously, the actual direction of the follicle changes from the pulling in the opposite direction to the natural grain of the hair. This can result in a fluffier and softer than normal re-growth – hair follicles can become weekend and hair actually will begin to grow back thinner, finer and less.
  • Can I have an intimate wax on my period?
    Yes! However, due to the increase of hormones and blood flow, your skin and body overall is more sensitive. It is possible that your wax may be more painful around the time of menstruation, but don’t let that stop you from staying consistent and coming in. Have a fresh moon cup or tampon and don’t worry about tucking!
  • Do I get a wax before or after a spray tan?
    Do not get a spray tan for at least 48 hours post wax. Spray tanning to soon can cause irritation on the skin since your pores will be open after waxing. It will take time for the pores to close.
