Things you should know before you arrive

  • What should I do to prepare for my wax appointment?
    Wear loose fitting clothing such as maxi dresses, sweat pants, and athletic wear (avoid lace underwear, thongs and denim pants) Shower before arrival Exfoliate area to be waxed 12-24 hours beforehand Avoid caffeine right before your appointment as it can increase sensitivity Do not trim the hair in the area to be waxed Take an ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment to alleviate some pain Complete your consent form! You will receive a confirmation email after you book your appointment. Click the link under 'Before Your Arrival'.
  • How do I care for my skin post wax?
    Please avoid heavy excerise , tanning + excess sun exposure, pools, saunas, hot tubs, tight clothing, and intimate contact for ATLEAST 24 hours. You may start to exfoliate every other day after 24 hours. Skin irritations may be greatly reduced if this is implemented daily. It has been my expierence that combining mechanical and chemical exfoliation provides the best results. Bare Skn 101 offers a varity of products to help with this process. Please ask me about which products may be best for your skin type!💕 Moisturize your vulva and bikini line daily Wax consistently every 4-6 weeks Dont shave in between wax appointments Establish a consistent aftercare routine
  • Why is there a deposit to make my appointment?
    At Bare Skn 101 Wax Studio, your service is reserved exclusively for you!😍 In order to limit the amount of late cancellations and no-shows, a deposit is required.
  • Who shouldn't get waxed?
    If you are on medication that increases your skin's photositivity, you may not be a good candidate for waxing. If you are using Retin-A or retinol products on your skin, discontinue the use of these products 3-5 days before your appointment. Clients taking the oral prescription Accutane should wait 12 months before waxing.
  • Does waxing hurt?
    I will do my best to make your experience as pain free as possible. Here are some tips to minimize the pain: Be consistent! This results in a less painful wax. Get on a consisitent schedule and stick to it! Year-round is ideal. Try to avoid caffeine ☕️before your appointment. Caffeinne is a stimulant and can make your skin more sensitive. Exfoliate 12-24 hours before your coming in. Invest in a great numbing cream and apply it 30 minutes before your appointment. The second appointment if less painful than the first and gets easier each time you come in. 😄 Stop shaving! 🛑I highly recommend to book your appointment two weeks after your last shave because shaving can make the hair more resistant to wax.
  • How early should I arrive for my appointment?
    Please arrive about five minutes to your appointment just in case you need to use the restroom. It is imperative that we start your scheduled appointment on time as services are booked back to back.
  • What if I am running late?
    Things happen! I get it. If you are running late, please know there is a strict late policy as I value and respect each and every clients' time as well as mine. Bare Skn 101 Wax Studio has a 10 minute grace period. If you arrive after 10 minutes, your deposit will be forfeited and a cancellation fee will apply. Please note, you will need to make another deposit to schedule a new appointment.
  • Will I be smooth after my first wax?
    Because our hair has three growth cycles (anagen, catagen, and telogen), it usually takes about 4 consistant waxes to get all of the hair on the same growth cycle, which will in turn, give us smooth + even results. However, there may be few hairs left behind as well as hair that may grow out sooner than others after your first few waxes. Trust the process! Before you know it, you will be super smooth month after month! 💕
  • Is there an age limit to come to Bare Skn 101 Wax Studio?
    If you are under 18, you will need to bring a parent or guardian to your first appointment as their consent is needed. If you are under 16, a parent or guardian must stay in the room with you during a bikini service.
  • Can I get a wax on my menstrual cycle?
    Absolutly! 💕No need to cancel your appointment as this is very normal and common. However, you must have a new tampon or menstrual cup in to get any brazilian/bikini wax services.
  • How often should I get waxed?
    Facial Waxing 2-4 weeks Underarms 2-3 weeks Bikini/Brazilian 4 weeks All other areas 4-6 weeks
