For the best results, hair should be at least ¼ inch to ½ inch. If your hair is longer, we recommend trimming the area and booking your waxing appointment for one to two weeks later. Hair needs to be long enough for the wax to grab on to, but not too long where it takes multiple time to remove one area of hair.
So how long will your wax last?
It just depends. Depending on the person and sometimes your cultural background, hair grows at different cycles.
Note this, shaved hair does not grow back in one cycle. Shaving remove hair unevenly, resulting in uneven regrowth. Also, shaving in between waxes cause the hair to grow back coarser and in the different directions. Shaved hair is much thicker because it gets cut off at its thickest point. # knowledge
After a first wax, shaved hair will still appear after the wax. This is common… and once you get in a habit and routine of waxing, this will slowly resolve itself. We need to get on a system here, ladies! It’s worth it. It should take about 4-6 weeks of “growing in” time. We highly recommend giving the area enough time to let all the hair grow back in 100% and trimmed, to make sure your next wax can grab all the hair!
Again, depending on each person, it could take up to 3 waxing treatments to achieve smooth skin due to the fact that hair grows in stages and all of your hair is never at the same stage. It is very important making waxing apart of your monthly routine and avoid shaving between waxing appointments.
If you have never waxed before and have a big event coming up, such as wedding, a vacation with your partner, etc. We would not recommend getting your first ever wax a couple day before you go. Plan ahead and try to get in at least two (2) waxes before you leave. This way, the first wax, which will be the more uncomfortable one, is out of the way and the second wax will have trained the hair to grow evenly and can be removed easily and evenly.
