Prep Steps: Bikini Line Wax & More
Hold off on the at-home treatments: We know it’s tempting to wax yourself (or shave or even to tweeze) but hold out until you get here. Fuzz free, very soon.
If you have shaved, grow your hair out twice as long. That way your hair won’t be too short when you come in—you need something for the wax to hold on to.
And if you haven’t shaved (we applaud you!), carefully trim down to about 1/2 inch so you’re ready to roll. (Hair that’s any longer can make waxing more difficult.)
How else can you prep before waxing? Keep exfoliating a couple of times weekly. Use a scrub, mitt, loofah, brush, whatever you prefer, but gently slough away dead skin cells surrounding the hair follicles. This will not only help deliver optimal waxing results (exfoliating makes the hair point up and prompts it to grow in the correct direction), but it will loosen any existing ingrown hairs. (Plus, it produces healthier skin and who doesn’t want that?)
Continue moisturizing so skin stays smooth and soft. This is especially important when waxing, no matter if it’s an eyebrow wax, body wax, Brazilian wax, etc., etc. Dry skin can cause your hair to break off rather than eliminating it from the root.
