What You Should Know Before Your Waxing Appointment

If you’ve never had a wax before, it’s understandable if you feel intimidated. Waxing is rather intimate, despite the fact that it’s now fairly common. There’s really nothing for you to feel embarrassed about. In fact, the removal of female body hair dates back to ancient India, sometime between 3,000 and 4,000 BCE. Nevertheless, you probably aren’t used to allowing someone access to intimate parts of your body for hair removal. It’s important for you to be as prepared as possible for your waxing appointment in order to lessen that anxiety and embarrassment.

With that being said, let’s look into a few of the things you should know before you visit your local waxing center. These tips will not only make you feel less worried about your appointment but will ensure the best possible results from your appointment too.

1. Let Hair Grow

You may be hesitant to let your body hair grow before you go to a waxing center but this is actually a good move. If the hairs on your body are too short, the wax won’t be able to grasp onto them. Body hairs should be at least a quarter of an inch long for a waxing appointment in order for them to be effectively removed.

2. Avoid Your Period

If you can help it, avoid visiting a waxing center during your period. Try not to schedule an appointment around your period. If you’re within three days of when you would typically start or end your period, don’t visit a waxing center. Your skin will be more sensitive and it may be uncomfortable for you to have your hair removed.

3. Know What You Want

It’s not enough to say that you want a bikini wax. Though your waxing specialist can help you figure out what you want, there are some specifications that you should be aware of. A normal bikini wax will only remove hair along your bikini line, also known as the sides. A Brazilian wax will remove all hair from front to back; while a full bikini wax will remove hair from the vulva and back, but leave a triangle of hair in the front. Look into waxing options before making your appointment.

4. Know That It’s Business

Here’s the thing: your waxing specialist has seen it all before. As embarrassed as you may be, remember that they are professionals with lots of waxing experience.
