Here at Great Waves Salon, we know how important it is to keep your bikini line looking primped and pristine. Whether you need a wax for an upcoming vacation or hot date, here is some friendly advice that answers your most pressing bikini line questions:
- How often should I get waxed? This answer varies from person to person, because everyone’s hair grows back at different rates. For most of our clients, those whose hair tends to grow back quicker than usual get waxed every three weeks, while those whose hair tends to grow slower get waxed every five weeks. If this is your first time getting a bikini wax, let your hair grow back for about four weeks before you schedule your next appointment.
- Should I trim or shave before my appointment? No! Even if you think your hair is too long to get waxed, or if you’re embarrassed by what it looks like down there, don’t be! Pubic hair is natural, and everyone grows it. The longer your hair is down there, the better the wax will be able to grab hold of each strand, resulting in a smoother, more even, and longer lasting bikini line.
- I’m getting married/have a hot date, when is the best time to get waxed?You might think that you’d want to get your bikini line done right before the big event, but this is a huge mistake! Ask anyone who gets waxed regularly, and they will tell you that you should get your bikini line done at least four to five days prior to the big event. If you get it done the day before or even the day of, you’ll suffer from some post-wax tenderness, which will definitely get in the way of enjoying any frisky activities you might have planned in the evening. We also advise new clients and first timers to have at least one bikini line session already checked off to avoid any pain when planning for your special occasion.
