When To Wax
Generally in winter, the last thing you think about is waxing, especially the parts that aren’t exposed to the chilly air; but you should not skip waxing in the winter for many reasons. What if you are going on vacation? You’ll want to wax those areas that a swimsuit won’t cover; and who wants to worry about shaving while you are supposed to be relaxing.
Why do you want to wax year round? Our hair grows in 3 stages: the growing stage, the dormant stage, and the falling out stage. When we get in a routine of waxing, we can get the hair when it is the dormant or falling out stage which can make the hair come out easier and it can hurt less. The hair will also stay away longer. You want to wax throughout the fall and winter, as well, so that when spring and summer comes it wont be as difficult to wax. Some people will choose to wax in the warm months and shave in the cold months, but that is not suggested, you should either shave or wax. The reason being, you will get out of the routine of hair growth and you will basically start all over. You can trim some hairs if they get to long before your next wax, but don’t shave.
What can you get waxed?
Just about anything! From eyebrows down to your toes, it can be waxed. If you have never been waxed, I wouldn’t jump into body waxing right away. I would start small like the eyebrows; that way you get a small taste of what to expect. Here at Back to Bliss we have 4 categories of waxing; Slick, Glazed, Polished, and Smooth. The Slick category includes: brows, chin, upper lip, fingers, and cheeks. Everything in the Slick category is $10 no matter who you go to. The Glazed Category includes: under arms, bikini, abdomen, and shoulder, these services range in price from $30-$36 depending on who see. Last but not least the Smooth Category includes: brazilian, full leg, and full back; depending on who your practitioner is the price ranges $50-$60.
Clarifying Bikini Waxing
If you are wondering what the difference is between the bikini, bikini shaping, and the brazilian; let me clarify for you. The bikini wax is anything that is outside the panty line. The bikini shaping is just a bit more in and a bit lower than the regular bikini wax. The brazilian is the removal of all hair in the pubic area, front to back.
Different Types Of Wax To Use
There are two types of wax, soft wax and hard wax. The reason there are different kinds of waxes is for different areas of the body and the difference in coarseness of the hair. When using a strip wax, the hair as well as the top layer of skin gets removed. Generally this wax gets used on the eyebrows and larger areas of the body. When using a hard wax, only the hair gets removed. This wax is used on people with very sensitive skin, and on very sensitive areas; for example, when getting a brazilian wax.
This is all the technical information about waxing. I will be doing another blog about waxing, the things you should know about waxing and what to expect. Stay tuned for Part 2!
