THE DO’S & DON’TS OF WAXING

BEFORE

The best waxing preparation is peeling your skin before you get waxed (e.g. with a loofa or our Body Scrub).

Let your skin calm down before waxing! Avoid extensive sunbathing or solariums 24 hours before you get waxed to protect your skin from irritation.

To get the best waxing result, you should not use greasy body lotions or oily skincare products before waxing as they decrease the effectiveness of the wax.

AFTER

Our specially formulated, pure and natural bodycare products are ultra-gentle on your waxed skin. Use the products to enjoy that unique smooth and silky feeling for a long time.

Calm down your skin after waxing to achieve perfect waxing results.
Don’t use irritating cosmetics and avoid extreme perspiration (e.g. sauna…) or intense UV light (e.g. solarium …).

Start on a regular peeling regimen three days after waxing – use either a loofa or our Body Scrub. That’s the perfect way to avoid ingrown hair.

GOOD TO KNOW

FAQ ABOUT WAXING

PLANNING YOUR STUDIO VISIT

How do I use the walk-in service?

All WAX IN THE CITY studios use our no appointment walk-in service. So, you don’t need to make an appointment for your waxing treatment. Just walk in when it’s best for you (but some time before we close). Our studios use custom software that updates your wait time nonstop to ensure the service works seamlessly. It’s up to you if you want to wait or not.

You can also register in person in the studio first and then go shopping or grab a cuppa if you need to wait. All clients are always treated in the order of their appearance, on a first come, first serve basis. This is the only way to ensure the service is fair for everyone.
We most commonly deliver on our WAXING-WITHOUT-APPOINTMENT promise: walk in at the spur of the moment instead of having to wait days or even weeks for an appointment.

And, there’s an even smarter way to your treatment: check our custom Q app to see how busy the studios are and book your next free slot. You’ll be informed about the time you must show up in the studio via APP and able to enjoy the time left until the treatment. We offer our waxing app for free.

How long should my hair be to wax effectively?

For best waxing results, your hair should be at least 4 mm (1/8”) long but no longer than 2 cm (7/8”).

Can I get a waxing session if my hair is only 2 mm (1/16”)?

Theoretically yes, but there’s not much point to it! The reason is that each hair passes through phases in which it grows faster or slower, and they aren’t synchronized. While some hair has grown to a length of 2 mm (1/16”), others are still out of sight under the skin and cannot be grabbed and removed by the wax – so they start rearing their heads within days. All hair should be above the skin surface to achieve perfect and long waxing results. That moment is usually when they have an average length of 4 mm (1/8”).

I don’t need to do waxings in the winter, right?

No, you don’t. But, you should. Firstly, because regular waxing makes your body hair get finer and sparser. Secondly, because it’s just as nice to feel totally good in your silky-smooth skin in the colder time of the year. In the sauna, the gym, if you’re wearing that sexy little black skirt at parties, when you have intimate moments with that special someone… or simply for yourself.

When shouldn’t I get waxed?

To be on the safe side, it’s best to wait if your skin is irritated, reddened or injured.

METHOD AND RESULTS

What kind of wax do you use?

After several years of research and development we are proud to offer our clients a wax that combines hair removal performance, sustainability and universal tolerability on unprecedented level. PURE Premium Performance Wax is a low temperature wax with a very creamy, skin-friendly consistency. It is dermatologically tested, 100% vegan and skin-friendly and developed without animal testing. Besides that, the wax removes fine and short hair perfectly, ensuring even smoother results.

How long does the waxing last?

Depending on the hair removal method you’ve been using, you’ll enjoy the results up to a month. Ultimately, however, your rate of hair growth is the crucial factor.

Does waxing hurt?

Applying and removing our PURE wax is very pleasant. We are also proud of our qualified waxperts, the best in their profession.

Will my hair change from being treated with hot wax?

When waxing is done correctly, your hair is removed down to the roots. The hair that grows back is usually finer and sparser, and over time the hair density declines in areas that are regularly treated with hot wax.

Can waxing cause skin reactions?

Light redness after waxing is a usual reaction of the skin, as hair is removed down to the roots, widening the pores and follicles. The skin gets used to it with regular waxing. Our PURE wax ensures gentle waxing, even if your skin is ultra-sensitive. The wax doesn’t react with the skin and is not absorbed by the skin, making it extremely tolerable.

IS IT OKAY, EVEN IF…?

Can pregnant women get waxings?

Of course, they can. There is no problem at all. Especially, when you’re pregnant, it’s important for you to feel good in your skin.

Is my piercing an obstacle for waxing?

It’s basically possible to get a waxing even if you’re pierced. But it depends on the kind of piercing and the type of waxing you want. We love to answer this question when you come to visit us in the studio.

What age is appropriate for waxing?

Most of our waxings are for clients from 12 years of age. Brazilian waxings are available to clients who are 16 years and older. Some of our studios offer an attractive 20% teen discount. Important note: if you are a minor, please bring a consent form signed by your parents when you first visit WAX IN THE CITY.

The following rule applies: teens aged 12 to 16 are allowed to do all waxings except Brazilian waxings, provided they bring along the consent form signed by their parents or have their parents sign the form at the reception. Teens who are 16 years and older need their parents to sign the following consent form for Brazilian waxings. If you are above 16 years old, you can get all other waxings without your parents’ consent. Prices for teen waxings are listed on the page of the studios that provide the service. The consent form is available on the studio page as well.

SKINCARE BEFORE AND AFTER

What causes ingrown hair and what can I do to avoid it?

Excess accumulation of dead skin cells is clogging the hair follicle. Growing hair cannot penetrate the outer dermal layer and instead curls back into the skin surface. The best way to prevent ingrown hair is a regular body peel or scrub with a loofa. The peeling removes dead skin cells, opens clogged pores and stimulates circulation. You should also avoid excess use of fatty body creams.

WAX IN THE CITY has collaborated with cosmetic experts and formulated a special serum against ingrown hair which reduces and even prevents hair from growing. Click here for information about recommended products and our bodycare products.

When and how often should I get a body peeling?

Regular peelings ensure that you not only get rid of the dead skin cells and avoid ingrown hair, but also stimulate the blood circulation of your skin. For best results, use a loofa (available in all studios) or one of our special peeling products (available in all studios and our online shop). Wait at least three days after your waxing before you peel your skin gently. We recommend not to peel your skin every day to avoid damaging the natural acid mantle of your skin.
