Prepping for Perfection

Avoid sun exposure or tanning at least 24 hours prior. Gently exfoliate the area to remove any dead skin cells. Wear loose, comfortable clothing to minimize irritation post-waxing. Consider taking a Tylenol or Ibuprofen if you're sensitive to discomfort.


It is recommended the hair to be as long as a grain of rice, or at least two-weeks of growth (preferably 3-4 weeks). This length ensures that the wax will have enough hair to grip onto for effective removal. If your hair is excessively long, the tech may trim it to a suitable length. 

Prepping for Perfection

What's In-Store During Your Session?

We recommend visiting salons or spas that use quality hard wax, in order to best protect the skin’s natural barrier. Your wax tech will explain the process and answer any questions or concerns you may have. The process involves applying warm wax while the technician holds the skin taut and then swiftly removes hair from the root.


Expect the wax tech to apply pressure after each removal. Expect some discomfort, although it is generally quick and manageable. During a Brazilian wax appointment, you may be asked to assume various leg positions to allow proper application and removal of the hair.


Maintain open communication with your wax tech for a more comfortable experience, and follow any recommended at-home-care advice for your skin type.

After-Care Rituals for Your Brazilian Glow

Avoid hot baths, steamy showers, saunas, or any sweat inducing activities for 24 hours.


Steer clear of tight clothing to prevent irritation.


Apply a soothing, alcohol-free moisturizer to hydrate the skin. This is most effective if applied within two-minutes after showering. 


Mastering the Art of Maintenance and Timing

Hair typically grows back slower and finer after waxing.


Consistency is key, so schedule follow-up appointments every 4-6 weeks for optimal results. Regular maintenance contributes to smoother, longer-lasting results.

Insider Tips for a Flawless Experience

Proper aftercare can make a significant difference in your Brazilian waxing experience.


Stay hydrated and moisturize! Drinking plenty of water and moisturizing with recommended products will make the waxing process easier, faster, and more comfortable.


Did you know that if your hair is dry or dehydrated, it is more likely to break and therefore decrease the effectiveness of your wax?


Exfoliate 2-3 times per week to prevent ingrown hairs, thus promoting smoother results and glowing skin!
