Hot wax is a mixture of beeswax and resin which is applied on the skin and removed by flicking and pulling without the need of a strip. New ingredients make this particular wax even more pliable and less likely to stick to the skin, ensuring a far less painful experience with no lasting discomfort. This is our chosen waxing technique for all intimate and sensitive areas. Sam is trained to use this method in South Africa in 1989 and has been using it ever since, that is more than 25 years of waxing experience.
Hair in the waxed areas re-grows lighter and more sparse and slower. After your first wax, the results can last up to 4 to 6 weeks depending on the individual's hair re-growth. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week at which point you should be thinking of making another appointment. Failure to do so will only make your hair longer and the next session will not be easier than the first.
Your body adjusts with continued waxing so each session becomes less painful and is finished more rapidly. Heat stimulates hair growth; therefore hair grows quicker in the summer than in the winter.
With regular waxing, the length of time between treatments will increase. Re-growth will be finer, thinner and slower. Eventually, hair growth may stop in patches depending upon the density of the hair.
If you are looking for a whole body wax, it can take up to three hours or more. The after effect of waxing can be a red and pimply rash, so have it done at least 3 days before any hot date. Each visit becomes easier, and you'll learn to turn the trip to see us into something to actually look forward to.
We aim to provide a friendly and relaxed environment without a daunting receptionist and peach decor.
Treatments are performed in a hygienic, non-sexual environment. We will always do our best to accommodate all client's needs and times, by adapting working hours to your needs. By all means you can bring your own music or use the time to catch up on emails or texts, we do not mind.
For waxing of the more sensitive areas we recommend two strong pain killers half hour before you arrive. We say this because people have varying pain thresholds and it is just a precaution. We do not recommend Brazilian and full bikini wax for the ladies whilst you are menstruating or in the few days leading up to this time, as it is a very sensitive time where all feelings are heightened and waxing is more painful, however, we are happy to wax if you are.
Do not come for a wax if you are extremely hungover; generally the body is then dehydrated and the pores tend to be tighter. It is also advised not to come for a wax when you are dehydrated.
We are extremely flexible so be sure to drop us an e-mail should you want to request an area that might not appear on the pricelist, though we think we have covered most areas that are safe to be waxed.
If you are under the age of 16 you will need to be accompanied by a parent or a guardian. So if you think you might look younger, please bring an ID with you.
