Waxing is an excellent alternative to shaving for controlling unwanted hair, but it’s natural to have a few questions about what to expect before your first appointment. The first thing you need to know is that your hair should be at least one-quarter inch long, or the wax won’t take hold.
When your hair is long enough for waxing, you’re ready for treatment. Depending on the location you’re having waxed, you may be asked to put on a robe or disposable undergarments. The technician will apply oil or powder to the skin to protect it, and then the warm wax will be applied across the hair. A soft strip is then placed over the wax, and your skin will be pulled taut as the technician uses the strip to pull away the wax and the attached hair. After treatment is complete, the technician will apply a soothing lotion to the treated area.
