HOME WAXING HISTORY PRICES FAQ CONTACT
Are you qualified?
Yes. I have a VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Wax Depilation from ISIS Beauty
Academy in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey. I am also qualified in Intimate
Male Waxing; I studied with depilatory specialists Perron Rigot in London and Basingstoke, Hampshire. They offer the UK's first certificated classes in
this advanced technique; the course was endorsed by Habia under their
National Occupational Standards for Intimate Waxing.
What should I do , or not do, before I come for waxing?
Please do not clipper or shave the
area before you are waxed, as I need at least half an inch - or about one
centimetre’s growth - to be able to perform the waxing.
Doesn't it hurt being waxed?
If it's done properly, not as much as you might think! I use a numbing lotion for
intimate male waxing which greatly reduces any possible pain. You should also make
sure you are relaxed. If you are tense, the hair follicle closes and the wax doesn't
reach the root. Immediately after waxing, I will apply gentle pressure to the area with
my hands; this confuses the nerve endings and stops the pain. But the more often you get
a wax treatment, the more accustomed you'll grow to the experience and the less it'll hurt.
Some people have been known to take a paracetamol before being waxed.
The latest non-strip waxes were invented by Perron Rigot to provide the
perfect removal of all hair types, even on sensitive areas. They share
unique ‘shrink wrapping’ abilities of older hot waxes but are lower in
temperature, easier to apply and stay flexible as they cool. This makes
them much more comfortable and an ideal choice for removing short, coarse
and stubborn hairs anywhere on your body.
Are there other ways to remove hair from my body?
Yes, but shaving or using a depilatory cream, only removes the hair at the surface rather than from the root. Within a few days, the hair
can be seen at the surface and your hair will tend to grow back in a rough
stubble. If you have those areas repeatedly waxed over long periods of
time, often the hair re-growth is much softer and finer.
