    Be New Year’s Ready from Head to Toe: Our Favorite 2011-2012 NYE Dress Styles

     

    New Year’s Eve is one of the best nights to hit the town, so you want to make sure to look and feel your best for the first night of the New Year! Before any special event, make sure to schedule your waxing appointment about 2-3 days before New Year’s Eve. This will allow for time to reduce redness before putting on that hot dress.
     
    Taking care of what is underneath that fabulous outfit is easy (with us of course!), the hard part is deciding what to wear. Check out the trends we love for New Year’s Eve 2011 – 2012. 
     
    Body-con
    Body-con is a huge trend this season. It is sleek and body forming. Body-con dresses can actually suck in those problem areas of your body. Choose which area of your body you really want to showcase and choose a dark color. This will allow for you to truly showcase those great parts of your body.
     
    One Shoulder
    One shoulder dresses are sexy and flattering on all different body types. This style offers a unique look to your normal cocktail dress attire. Hint: with this style, make sure your underarms are perfectly waxed so there aren’t any flaws on the shoulder without a strap.
     
    Sequins
    Sequins can be scary, but for New Year’s Eve, anything goes.  This look allows you to take a walk on the wild side and sparkle. With a sequin dress it is best to keep all the attention to the dress. Accessories should be kept to a minimum. A small, sleek black clutch is the perfect bag for this dress.
     
    Low-back dress
    Showing off your bare back is just as sexy as showing off your neckline. Backless dresses are sexy in an unexpected way. Pulling your hair up into a messy bun helps to flaunt this style. The challenge with these dresses is finding the right bra. Check out this article on The Frisky about the best undergarments for backless dresses. 
     
    Bold Color
    New Year’s Eve is a time to stand out from the crowd. The little black dress is a classic, but if you want something a little different, add a splash of color. This winter, 80’s bold colors are back. Pair that neon green dress with a black leather clutch and you are ready to go!

    After Waxing Care: Our Top Tips

    Getting your skin ready before a wax is important, but your after-waxing skin care regime makes a huge difference in giving you a great waxing experience.

    The most common reactions to waxing are redness, minor irritation and

    ingrown hairs. But, with these aftercare waxing tips, you can have

    the best results and most comfort after your wax.

     

     

    1. Direct Heat, Sunlight, Hot Tubs

    Avoid the sun or wear sunscreen right after a wax. Waxed areas are

    prone to sunburn and hyper-pigmentation (small dark spots on skin)

    when exposed to the sun. It is best to wait at least 48 hours before

    exposing your skin to the sun. Also, as we head into wintertime and

    hot tub season, be aware that hot tubs can open pores further and

    water in general has bacteria (both of which can lead to post waxing

    issues).

     

    2. Avoid tight clothing

    Tight clothing, especially on the waxed areas can cause irritation

    and ingrown hairs. This is especially true along the panty line where

    hair breaks off due to constant friction. Choose panties and under

    garments carefully. Also, when choosing workout attire, remember that

    friction and excess sweating mixed with tight fitting clothes can all

    lead to an increase in irritation to the skin.

     

    3. Exfoliate

    Waxing exfoliates that skin, but don't start too soon. Using scrubs,

    AHAs, and loofas within the first 24 hours after waxing can cause

    further irritation to your skin, so wait about 48 hours before you

    begin exfoliating.

     

    4. Apply TendSkin

    TendSkin is a miracle product if you get ingrown hairs. After waxing,

    your pores are open for a period of time.  Open pores can become

    clogged with skin oil and dead skin cells; TendSkin helps prevent

    clogged pores and ingrown hairs.

     

    5. Keep Your Hands to Yourself

    Avoid rubbing the newly waxed area. This is especially true for

    facial waxing. Remember, your pores are open for a period of time and

    rubbing the area increases chances of filling your pores with oil,

    skin cells, and other debris.

     

    6. Sexual Activity

    Many people ask about sex after bikini waxing. Just keep in mind

    friction or anything that increases bacteria on the skin should be

    considered.

    Model Call: How to Be a Waxing the City Model

    Every few weeks we email out a model call. Do you know what it is like to be a model for Waxing the City?

    About Waxing University's Modeling Program:
    All of Waxing the City’s cerologists participates in on-going minimal waxing standards training. From time to time, we look for MODELS to help us with this program.  This is an opportunity for employees to get hands on experience in a learning environment. Models are rewarded by receiving the specified waxing services at a significant discount.

    All “students” are licensed estheticians and employees of Waxing the City.  They have completed all of our preliminary educational requirements and are excellent technicians. The goal of our modeling program is to give our cerologists real-life scenarios creating an opportunity to expand their waxing skills as they learn Waxing the City’s Minimal Waxing Standards.

    Customer Expectations:

    Models must understand that services are being provided by “cerologists in training”, therefore:

    • All services will be supervised by one of our trainers (2 people in the room)
    • As in all learning environments, there may be inconsistencies from time to time in our defined techniques
    • Specific services are needed on specific dates
    • The service may take more time than a normal session
    • All modeling will be at Waxing University, located at 1664 Market Street in Denver, CO.

    In return, models will receive:

    • Waxing services at a significant discount – 50% off normal price
    • Pride and satisfaction that you are helping less experienced estheticians become “certified cerologists”   

    Model Requirements:

    Models must meet the following requirements at time of service:

    • Hair growth is minimum ¼” inch long (at least 2 weeks since your last shave is a good general rule)
    • Limited time slots available
    • Duration of service varies depending on what service is being performed
    • Call if interested for complete listing of specific dates/times for various services
