WAXING​

DOES WAXING HURT?

Waxing is not the most pleasant experience, but its not the worst thing either! Here are some helpful tips you can follow to help lessen the pain. 
  • Take an over the counter pain reliever such as Advil, or Ibuprofen 30 minutes before your wax.  
  • Honey B's offers a numbing spray with 4% lidocaine that you can apply before your service.
  • Relax! The anticipation is the worst part. Take a deep breath, the wax is always worth it!

HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY WAX?

To ensure the highest quality wax please exfoliate 24 hours before your appointment. This process removes the dead layers of skin so the hair follicles can break through easier.

HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR NEED TO BE?

Hair length should be about 1/4 inch (a grain of rice) to be waxed. This ensures the hair is long enough for the wax to grip on. Thicker hair should be about 1/2 inch long. 

CAN I GET WAXED WHILE TAKING ACNE MEDICATION?

If you are taking an acne medication such as Acutance or Retin-A it is not recommended to get facial waxing. These products can increase skin sensitivity while also posing the risk of skin lifting.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET WAXED?

For all bikini and brazilian waxes you must be 18 or older. Clients who are 16 and older may receive a bikini or brazilian wax with a legal parent or guardian present. 

UGH! ITS THAT TIME OF THE MONTH, CAN I STILL GET WAXED?

Yes! Although you will be more sensitive, you may get waxed while on your period. However please use a tampon during your service.

CAN I GET WAXED WHILE PREGNANT?

Absolutely! Expectant mothers are more than welcome to come get waxed, though you will be more sensitive. 

CAN I WORKOUT AFTER MY WAX?

It is not recommended to workout 24 hours after your wax. Friction and sweat can irritate the skin, making you more prone to bacteria getting into your pores.
