Got a hot date? Better plan ahead…

Dear WAX,

I have never gotten a brazilian wax before, but I really want to try it out!  My boyfriend is coming into town tonight, and I would really like to surprise him.  This may be a little TMI, but how long after I get waxed should I wait to have sex?

Dear Ready to Get Busy ,

Believe it or not, this is a very common question.  We’re so glad you asked!  We always recommend waiting 24 hours before doing any sort of physical activity that may cause friction in the area that has just been waxed.  This includes working out, as well as sex (sorry!).  When you get waxed, you are removing the hair (including the root), so your pores are left wide open and sensitive to bacteria.  Any excess perspiration or friction in the area can result in bacteria getting into the pores and causing irritation.

We want to make sure you have the best waxing experience possible, and that includes your experience POST waxing as well.  We hope this helps!  For best results, be sure to schedule your bikini wax at least 24 hours in advance of your hot date…. ;)



To trim or not to trim…

Dear WAX,

It’s been a while since my last wax (I’m embarrassed to say how long!) should I trim before coming in?

Hairy Situation

It’s up to you and what you feel comfortable with. We find that most times when people trim they end up trimming the hair too short and we can’t wax it. If you do choose to do some trimming make sure not to trim too much – 1/4″ is the minimum we need to wax. Waxing is our business and we have all the tools for a “haircut” so if you feel comfortable enough we’ll totally handle it. No need to be embarrassed about how long it’s been- those winter months can sometimes get the best of all of us!
