    Waxing Q&A: Never Been Waxed

    Q: I have never gotten a wax before, but my bikini line never seems to get as clean as I’d like with shaving. I’ve decided to try waxing because I want a very clean look for my upcoming vacation and don’t want to worry about being embarrassed about my bikini line. When should I get it done? Should I go more than once before my trip? I also feel like I have harder hair as well, but that could just be in my head. Help please!!!

    A: Since you have never done any kind of bikini waxing, my suggestion with new clients is to let your hair grow out as long as possible before heading to the salon for your wax. The longer the hair, the better the results. I always recommend doing at least two waxes before an event such as a vacation, wedding, birthday… The first reason is to see how your skin reacts to the waxing process; how red and irritated your skin gets and how long it stays that way. The second reason is that the more of a routine you get into, the better your waxes will get.

     

    Your first wax isn’t always perfect because the hair is course from never being waxed so it tends to break in some areas rather than being pulled from the root. When all the hair is pulled from the root, the re-growth takes longer, keeping you hair free longer! :)

     

    Stop shaving now, let your hair grow and get one good wax two or three days before your departure date. This will leave time for the redness and irritation to go away. Keep in mind you don’t want to be in direct sunlight or any kind of standing water for 24-48 hours after being waxed. Freshly exfoliated skin (from the wax) can lead to severe burning or hyper pigmentation from direct sunlight. Also, your follicle is still open and can invite unwanted bacteria into that follicle, the kind of bacteria you find in standing water. Bottom line: don’t wax closer than two days from your trip.

     

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    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!
