Ideally you could exfoliate and moisturise the area a couple of days prior to your appointment. On the day of your appointment please shower before arrival. If coming straight from work, we will provide fresh wipes for your convenience.
The hair should be no shorter than a grain of rice. If you are having intimate Waxing, the longer the hair, the more uncomfortable it will be, so you can trim the hair before you appointment or we’ll do it for you.
Everyone is different. In most cases, you will see minimal regrowth during the first 3 weeks, with a noticeable increase after that. Continued waxing encourages slower, sparser regrowth.
If you are serious about maintaining that clean and smooth feeling, we recommend that you come in every 4 weeks for your first few appointments. Roughly by your 4th wax, you find that the whole thing is a breeze. The discomfort will be greatly decreased and the re-growth will be greatly slowed. You may find that you will be able to leave longer gaps between your appointments.
Men and women from all professions and all ages get waxed…more than you would ever dream of. Their reasons range from it feeling cleaner to improvements in their love life and think about it, excess hair is ageing and a turn off, who rally likes to wear a fur coat in the summer!
Everyone’s tolerance for pain is different. We believe that waxing is most uncomfortable when it is a new sensation and you do not know what to expect. Any discomfort will subside quickly and will lessen with each visit, as the hair thins and less hair is removed from the area. It can be uncomfortable but the discomfort is short lived and remember hot wax only sticks to hair. We can assure you will not leave the salon in any pain. The Waxing Rooms use only high quality depilatory waxes that are heated to just above the temperature of the skin. Also caffeine,pregnancy and menstruation can cause increased sensitivity. Taking an Ibuprofen 30 mins prior to your visit has been known to reduce some discomfort..
Keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat / friction during the next 24hours.
- >No hot baths or showers (warm water only).

> No swimming in chlorinated pools.
> No deadorants,body sprays,powders,lotions or other products on the area.
Try to use an exfoliating glove after two days, then a couple of times a week following treatment and do try to keep your skin moisturised.
Some slight sorness,small bumps and redness are common. These are normal reactions particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over 24 -48 hours. If however you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the salon. Please note:

If you are having intimate waxing you will need to get naked from the waist down to get a perfect result, so you need to leave your modesty at the door. However, if you are not comfortable with this we will provide you with a paper g-string although your treatment may take longer. Remember you wouldn’t ask a hairdresser to cut your hair with a hat on. If you choose to wear your own knickers we cannot assume responsibility for any oil or wax splashed onto the fabric.
At The Waxing Rooms our therapists are waxers and nothing else. There will be no happy endings and no extras. We understand that feeling anxious can cause all kinds of reactions, but this will not affect the treatment itself. We are professional and as long as everything remains professional we will continue with the treatment.
Waxing is appropriate for almost everyone, but not recommended for people suffering from diabetes or those who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. Users of Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Isotretinoin are advised not to wax – the medications tend to weaken the skin and tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed. Waxing should not be carried out on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated,chapped or suffering sunburn.
It is the responsibility of the client to discuss any concerns, conditions or medications that may result in contra-indications for waxing when you have your initial consultation.
