    Waxing Q&A: How Young is to Young? 

    We are starting to see a trend in our salons of more and more mothers bringing in their daughters to get waxed. Some of the girls we see are as young as 10- or 12-years old.

    We are not sure how to explain the waxing trend, but we do have a few theories:

    Today it is not uncommon for girls to get their periods by age 9 or 10. And, one of the many things that hormones do to the human body is increase hair growth.

    Some parents don't want their girls to start shaving their legs or bikini lines, for a variety of reasons, so they bring their daughters in to start with the 'waxing lifestyle' as their hair begins to mature.

    Some kids travel to the salon with their parents and are immersed in the waxing culture and want to try it.

    In general, these younger girls are coming in for facial waxing, specifically the upper lip and brow. But it is becoming more common for them to request full- and half-leg waxes and the bikini line, as well.

    At Waxing the City we require anyone under the age of 18 to have a parental consent form signed. There is no law requiring this, but it is our policy, one based on our belief that when dealing with kids of such a young age – especially on the younger end, say 11 or 12 – that parents should be aware of and involved in these decisions.

    So, how young is too young? Of course, it's ultimately up to the parent to decide. But, we are very conservative with waxing younger girls at our salons because there are some important issues to consider. Please feel free to ask us questions and come to us with any concerns; we’re happy to help!

    Always,

    Interesting post. Good for perspective. I personally like the fact that the meters are in place. It encourages people to be conscious about the use of parking, which makes for a better experience when going into downtown replica guess watches
