Waxing ~ Naomi's Studio & Salon

At Naomi's Studio & Salon, we prefer to use a hard wax that does not use Muslin Strips. Hard wax is more gentle than soft wax and clients find this wax to be much more comfortable and the results are the most impressive.

Please note that we do not wax eyebrows. We prefer to tweeze for the most accurate shaping.

Waxing Do's and Dont's

To achieve best results and provide a smooth hair removal service, facial hair should be 1/8 of an inch long. Leg and body hair should be 1/4 of an inch long. Although it varies with clients, this is typically 2 to 3 weeks of hair growth.

If have have been sunbathing, then please wait at least 48 hours before doing any waxing service. However, if you are sunburned, then we suggest a few weeks. Please do not expose freshly waxed skin to the sun for at least 24 hours.

We do not wax skin that is irritated, sunburned, has a rash or broken

If you are on prescription Acutane, Retin-A or any prescription acne cream, then please be off the medication for at least 30 days before scheduling a waxing appointment. If you've recently had a strong facial peel, then we do not recommend waxing and you should wait at least 3 weeks.

Plan to wax after your period. Your pain threshold is higher in the week after your period than having wax applied to your dainty bits certainly will.

Exfoliate. The day before you decide to wax, exfoliate in the shower. This will remove dead skin, allowing the wax to grip shorter hairs.

Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. About an hour before your appointment, take an Advil, Tylenol or other pain reliever.
