Summer has arrived and your holiday is booked, it's time to make your bikini wax appointment but which should you choose? Maybe it's your first wax and you're not sure what to expect, but our therapists are true professionals and know exactly how to tackle tricky areas while making you feel as comfortable as possible. We use the best products, and stick to a strict hygiene routine for all of our waxing. That means zero cross contamination with no double dipping of spatulas as a new one is used for each dunk, gloves are worn at all times, and tools are always santised.
We offer four types of bikini waxes, which will you dare?
Bikini - This is a basic bikini wax that removes hair to the side of the knickers, and slightly across the top if you would like.
High Bikini - Going on a little further past knicker line than a basic bikini but still with knickers on, making sure we grab everything that might otherwise pop out of your bikini bottoms! Your therapist will make sure you have a smart, even line on both sides and across the top.
Brazilian - Knickers off for this one as we take everything from underneath and behind, just leaving behind a small landing strip or triangle. This wax comes with an organic lollipop, and gloves for you to help us stretch.
Hollywood - Knickers off again for the Hollywood which removes all hair front, back, and underneath. Organic lolly included, and of course gloves to help us stretch.
Hair needs to be a minimum of 4mm long for a smooth result, but not too long as this will up the pain levels. We do recommend trimming before your appointment if it has gone a little wild! Don't worry if you can't as we have clippers especially for the job.
Book the correct wax for your needs, a Brazilian will take longer than a Bikini line for your therapist to complete. If you're not sure then we recommend starting with a High Bikini so you get a feel for the wax and then work your way up to a Brazilian/Hollywood at your next appointment, although we promise it's not as painful as you might imagine!
Showering before your wax is super important as we are going to be opening up all of those hair follicles which we want to keep free of sweat and bacteria to prevent spots, bumps, and infection. Bare in mind you will need to avoid hot showers and baths for 24 hours after your wax while the follicles close again.
Relax - waxing works best when you are cool as a cucumber and not in a nervous sweat. Holding your breath makes your body hold on to those pesky hairs, so deep breath out and watch the hairs fly!
Rosie Pearl Hot Wax
We use hot wax for all intimate waxing which gives the best results while being as painless as possible. Rosie Pearl by Waxperts is our wax of choice, premium, high performance hot wax that has a low melt point, a quick setting time, and remains flexilble unlike some other hot waxes.
You may have had warm wax before which is removed using paper or fabric strips, this type of wax is not suitable for waxing delicate areas because it sticks to the skin and subsquently can remove a layer of skin upon removal. Hot wax works by encasing the hairs as it sets, before being swiftly peeled off with all the hairs trapped inside. Hot wax never sticks to the skin itself, we even apply a layer of oil to act as a barrier, which means it is super safe for intimate waxing.
