Are you thinking about booking a wax for your holiday?

If you’re not already a regular waxer, it’s always a good idea to have a couple of waxes before your holiday appointment so that you get the smoothest result possible. 

But why? 

Well, firstly, if you’ve never waxed before you don’t know how your skin is going to react

Adverse reactions are rare, but unless you’ve been waxing for years you will probably have stronger and more dense growth than a regular waxer, so the more hair we remove, and the tougher it is,  the more follicles we upset and the more chance there is of a reaction. 

And do you really want irritated skin on holiday? No, didn’t think so!

But secondly, if you’ve been previously shaving you’re going to have stubble laying dormant (asleep) in your follicles from months ago, just waiting to spring into life and pop out at any given moment.

So this means that even after you’ve had a wax, you could still get stubble grow through! 

Neither of which are ideal when you’re sunning yourself in your bikini are they?

It takes a few cycles of 4-6 weekly waxing to catch all those dormant stubbly hairs that were previously shaved. So for best results get a few waxes in beforehand, two or three is usually enough, but it does depend on your hair growth cycles. 

P.S. If you’re going on holiday in June or July you really need to be starting in April, thats basically NOW – so get your appointment booked and get growing (3-4 weeks growth please)!

P.P.S. Regular waxers always get the longest smoothest wax for their holidays 😉
