My aim is to make you feel at ease and help you to get over your fear caused by past experiences of waxing. All you need to do is simply book your appointment and I will do the rest. When you arrive for your appointment, after a short consultation about the treatment, i will leave you alone in the room to get ready for your treatment.
You may have the biggest body hang ups but i will do my best to put you at ease to make you feel more comfortable than previous waxing appointments. Don’t be shy, just because you’re a female asking for a back wax, don’t think it’s not been done before! Remember, at Tannorah it’s all about the waxing and the end result, so be assured as your waxer i will only be thinking about what i have to do. It’s about getting your face/body hair to the easy stage of regular maintenance.
Well, for a start, you need some hair! If you shave, allow a minimum of 3 weeks growth before you come for a wax. For the very BEST results, 4 week growth is recommended to ensure all hair is long enough for the wax to be remove, giving you a longer hair-free time after you wax. The same applies if you use hair removal cream. If your hair is the same length as a grain of rice, it's perfect. It isn't easy to leave previously shaved hair to grow out, but pay close attention, it is the way to acheiving the best when it comes to your waxing results!
If you have left the hair for 4 weeks, you will get a couple of weeks hair free before it starts growing again.
Waxed for another couple of weeks (week 4). After your first wax you may see regrowth a little sooner but after your second and third wax your hair will be in the correct growth cycle to get to a couple of weeks hair free from each treatment.
Start to exfoliate the area every 2-3 days to encourage the hair to come through the skin and minimise ingrown hairs. This will go a long way to getting the desired result from your waxing! Other than that remember no shaving or trimming!
Disposable underwear is provided. It should make the treatment quicker and less messy if we aren’t worrying about protecting your underwear. Don’t stress, when we say we have seen it all, we mean it!
Tannorah recommends, for the first 24 hours after your wax, you avoid any excess heat or heat treatments/activities such as saunas, sun-beds, hot baths/showers, hot yoga, gym sessions and really anything that will make you sweat. As much as you may want to with your newly waxed bits, don’t get hot and steamy with your partner, just wait a few hours please!
It is also recommended that you do not use any creams or products on the area for this time unless it is specifically recommended for post waxing. Your treatment is always completed with a post-wax product. This will be enough to help soothe the skin and keep reactions down to a minimum if aftercare instructions are followed properly.
Yes, you certainly can.
Please ensure that your hair is long enough and that you are clean. Fulfilling both of these requests make it much easier and the day a little more pleasant.
For the perfect wax, it’s recommended you return every 4 weeks. Once you have been coming a while, you will notice a reduction in your hair growth if you the homecare advice. This will mean you can then get waxes every 4-6 weeks depending on how much regrowth you have.
Well it’s not completely painless, anyone who tells you otherwise isn’t telling the truth. However, the pain is minimal and over fairly quickly. The pain only lasts for a second when the strip is coming off and disappears just as quick. So just like the hair, one second it’s there the next it’s gone!
If you are going somewhere sunny on holiday, it is best to get waxed at least 24-48 hours before you plan to expose your skin to the sun. This is strictly 48 hours or more if it’s your very first wax.
Yes, of course. You can call/email/facebook mail as many times as you like with as many questions as you like. No question is ever a silly question. It is important help you feel 100% comfortable.
