How Long Does Hair Have to Be to Wax?

hair length for waxing

You’re dying to book a wax. The stubble has made its irritating appearance and you’re ready to be your smooth self again. Just one problem: Your hair’s not yet long enough. Say what? But yes, it’s true: Hair length for waxing matters.

And the reasoning is fairly simple: The wax needs a little something to hold on to; the longer the hair, the better the grip.

That makes sense, right? For sure.

What’s the Appropriate Hair Length for Waxing?

We’re glad you asked. Length of hair for waxing should be at least ¼ of an inch. (Imagine a grain of rice.)

(However, while growing your hair out to said length is one of the do’s of waxing, here’s a don’t: if hair is too long, simply (carefully) trim it to at least a ½ inch.

Now, a quick reminder: Don’t go tweezing or shaving any stubble or stray hair in between waxes. Wait until your hair’s grown out. And then come see us, get smooth (oh, and have a totally pampering experience).

Because if you shave, it throws off your entire hair cycle. See, the beauty of waxing is that it literally coaxes your hair to grow at the same rate, rather than randomly and chaotically. (And don’t worry, all it takes is about 3 waxes to have hair growing at the same time!)

Plus, another benefit of waxing is that the hair that does return is less coarse, it’s thinner, it’s softer…simply fab.
