Why Wax?

Personal reasons, more hygienic, sports related benefits for athletes, improved appearance, eliminated stubble growth, enhanced muscle definition, smooth look & feel – to name a few. Plus, why shave every day

I've been waxed before and have had a bad experience, how are you different?

Wax in the City staff are highly trained in all areas of waxing. Knowing how not to bruise and tear your skin comes with experience and using the right product to get the best results.

How long will a waxing last?

Each person varies some 3 weeks some longer, but we recommend regular waxing appointments every 4 weeks. It all depends on how smooth and hair free you want to when you can be free for up to 4 weeks!!!

Do men really get waxed?

They sure do and just as much as women and why not, Men want to be smooth too!!!

What is a Manzilian?

A manzilian is the male equivalent of a female brazilian wax. A manzilian is the removal of all hair from a gentleman’s genital and between the cheeks.

Will I get any re-actions?

The back and chest are areas that commonly break out after waxing. If you have a tendency to have a reaction from shaving then you are more likely to have the same reactions to waxing. Using the correct home care and having regular waxing on these areas will minimize reactions.

Is there any reason why I will not be able to be waxed?

If you have a contagious skin condition you will have to wait till it has completely cleared up. If you are using Roaccutane you must wait for 6 months after you have finished your medication. We cannot remove hair from areas that have been treated with steroid cream Retin-A, Differin or other retin- oid acne products within the last 3 months.

Will it hurt?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Your first time will generally hurt the most then after that each subsequent wax will become easier as there will be less hair to remove so will not be as uncomfortable. A lot of clients do mention that the experience isn’t as bad as they thought it would be.

Taking a couple of Ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment can help reduce the discomfort.

When should I book my next wax?

4-6 weeks for the best results

How long should my hair be before I wax?

A minimum of 1cm/1/4″ long – or make your appointment 3 weeks after your last shave.
Please do not be tempted to trim yourself if your bush is overgrown, leave that all to us, we don’t want you to be taking too much off and not getting the end result you want.

Before your appointment

Please shower if possible. If you are coming straight from work then freshen up wipes are provided if needed.

What is the difference between a Basic,G-String and Brazilian Wax?
Bikini Wax
A bikini wax is the removal of hair along the bikini line. A bikini wax ensures that when you’re in your bikini bottom, you do not have to worry about any hair outside of the lines of your bikini. This typical bikini wax is simple, relatively, fast.
G-String Wax
A G-String wax removes the hair along the bikini line but also goes further into the the frontal part and the sides of your bikini area. Based on your preference you can get as much hair as you want removed from the frontal part of your bikini area with a G-String wax.
Brazilian
A Brazilian Wax is the next step from the G-String wax. A Brazilian Wax removes all the hair from the frontal part of your bikini area and then goes all the way back.  Every bit of hair is waxed off during a Brazilian wax: hair on the front, back, sides, and in between the cheeks. Removing all the hair in your bikini area. This wax is perfect for those who like the nude feel and do not want any hair whatsoever down there.
When should I book my next Wax?

Any waxing including brazilian during your pregnancy is perfectly normal and not harmful to you or your baby. Wax in the City staff has waxed many expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy right up to their due date, so you are in highly experienced hands.

How long should my hair be before I wax?

A minimum of 1cm/1/4″ long – or make your appointment 3 weeks after your last shave.

Waxing is a popular option for keeping your skin SMOOTH & SEXY for weeks.   To make sure you’re ready for your next waxing appointment at Wax in the City, here is the best way to prepare.

1. No matter where you’re waxing, check the skin before you go in for your appointment. Broken skin or inflammation needs to heal before you’re ready to wax. If you have moles or beauty marks, point them out to your Wax Specialist so they can be protected during the waxing appointment.

2. Let it grow -But not too long . A minimum of 1cm/1/4″long- or make your appointment 3 weeks after your last shave.

3. Light Exfoliation. Gently exfoliate the skin a day before waxing , exfoliation helps wax grab hair and not skin, but it can also leave skin more sensitive to pain , so lighter is best.

4. Moisturize well on days leading up to your appointment. Healthy , well-moisturized skin allows the hair to release more easily. Avoid moisturizing on the day of your appointment.

5. BIKINI WAXING . Weather you prefer a basic,modified or Brazilian , keep skin in the bikini area ultra clean. Waxing can leave skin vulnerable to infection, and areas of the body that are normally warm and damp are more prone to bacterial growth.

Please follow these waxing tips to minimize irritation and possible discomfort:
1. Moisturise your skin daily after your waxing treatment with a tea-tree lotion (available at Wax In The City) as the follicles are open and prone to infection.
2. Avoid sun/solarium exposure for 48 hrs before and after being waxed.
3. Avoid saunas, steam rooms, spas and other heated sources for at least 48 hours. No hot baths, hot showers directly after a wax.
4. Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools or the beach for 24 hours after waxing
treatment.
5. Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.
6. Avoid the use of exfoliating products for at least 72 hours after waxing as they might irritate your skin.
7. Loofah 2- 3 times a week in the shower with tea-tree skin wash. The best time to start is 72hours after your wax. Synthetic gloves are available at Wax In The City.
8. Avoid applying deodorant for the frst 24 hours after waxing treatment.
9. Avoid applying make-up directly after facial wax.
10. Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
11. Don’t shave between waxing. This distorts the hair growth cycle.
12. Don’t pick at ingrown hairs, it may cause scarring, infection and look unappealing.Ingrown Cream helps with the prevention of ingrown hairs – available at Wax In The City.
13. Apply cold compress to reduce redness, hiving or irritation.
14. It is recommended your wax treatments are scheduled within 4 weeks; however, this varies for everyone. Your wax specialist will discuss the duration required between your waxing treatments to maintain smooth & sexy skin.
