Wax On, Pull It Off at Our Cary NC Body & Facial Waxing Salon

Getting ready for summer? Have you considered waxing your body for the perfect bikini look? The Green Room, a Cary NC waxing salon, offers full body waxing, upper lip, facial waxing, Brazilian wax and eyebrow waxing. This is why you should be visiting the salon.

Waxing removes unwanted hair temporarily. It is better than shaving as hair regrowth takes a longer time. Facial waxing enhances the appearance and allows easy application of makeup. Eyebrow waxing pops out your eyes for a brighter look. A full body wax leaves your entire skin flawless.

The Process of Waxing

  1. Prepare the wax. It has to be passed through the heat before you start waxing. The wax warmer is preferred since it keeps the wax in suitable temperature while you work and it is less messy.
  2. Pre-clean. A cleanser with isopropyl alcohol is suitable as it evaporates away and there is no need to rinse. It also helps the wax to grip well on the hair strands. For facial waxing, ensure you’re careful with the areas around the eyes.
  3. Test the wax. While using a wax warmer, the temperature is consistent, but it’s good to check if the wax is too hot on the skin.
  4. At this point, work on small sections at a time. Smear the wax on the skin in the direction of hair growth. Leave the wax until it’s a bit hard. Eyebrow waxing is sensitive; apply wax carefully to prevent contact with the eyes.
  5. Rip off. Pull the dry wax off your skin in the opposite direction of hair growth. While removing the wax, hold the skin beneath the wax to reduce the pain.
  6. Repeat the sections. Apply wax to the other sections you want your hair removed. Leave to dry and pull off.
  7. Clean up. After waxing all your sections, there will wax residues, especially where your skin folds. Use a wax remover and soft cotton cloth to do away with the wax.

Important Factors to Consider Before Waxing

  • Carry out a health check to determine if waxing does not have an effect on your health.
  • Talk to your provider and ask questions. You may need to do a patch test.
  • After waxing, avoid any skin treatment regimens like steam baths or saunas.

Conclusion

Waxing is practically one of the best ways to deal with excessive hair growth on the skin. Usually, frequent waxing reduces the rate at which your hair regrows. Visit our Cary waxing salon for the best waxing experience.

Tips To Prepare Your Skin For Waxing

Body waxing is a popular way to remove unwanted hair. Many people are nervous about getting Brazilian waxing. However, there are many things that you can do in order to prepare and make this a better experience. Below is a list of things that you can do in order to prepare for facial waxing:

Let Your Hair Grow Out

Facial waxing cannot be performed on hair that is too short. If you have recently shaved, then you will need to wait one or two weeks before you get waxed. The hair needs to be at least 1/4 of an inch. However, you do not want to wait too long. Letting the hair grow too long will cause waxing to be more painful.

Check Your Skin

It is important to thoroughly check your skin before you get Brazilian waxing. If you have inflammation or broken skin, then you will need to allow it to heal before you get waxed. You should also tell your esthetician about any moles that you have. Your esthetician will take special care in order to avoid hurting those moles.

Exfoliate

You should exfoliate your skin the day before you get your skin waxed. This will help loosen up dirt and dead skin cells. It can also help lift trapped hairs.

Stop Using Retinoids

Retinoids are skin medications that can be used to treat various skin conditions, such as acne and wrinkles. These medications can make your skin more sensitive to pain. That is why you should stop using them two weeks before you get waxed.

Moisturize Your Skin

You should moisturize your skin before you get waxed. It is easier to remove hair from well-moisturized skin. However, you do not want to use too much moisturizer. Excess moisturizer can make waxing more difficult.

Take A Pain Reliever

Everybody tolerates pain differently. While waxing is not that painful for some people, it can be extremely painful for others. If you are sensitive to pain, then you may want to take a pain reliever 30 minutes before you get waxed. The pain reliever will kick in right before you get waxed and alleviate discomfort.

This looks startling, but is used as an outline so your brow expert knows where to remove hair and where to let it grow. Once your consultation is complete your brow expert will wax around the brow map outline, and you are left with full, youthful brows.

Cary Body Waxing Salon, The Green Room, Shares 9 Brazilian Wax Tips

Brazilian wax services can be a little bit intimidating to those who’ve never given this fabulous service a try before. The truth is that the fear and anticipation leading up to a wax is oftentimes scarier than the service itself. To help you have the best Brazilian wax experience possible, here are nine Brazilian wax tips from our Cary body waxing salon.

1. Don’t Panic or Stress

The more your freak out and stress, the worse the experience is going to be. While getting a Brazilian at a body waxing bar does entail some pain, it’s usually not as bad as people think it’s going to be.

2. Don’t Shave or Apply Any Products

Don’t shave for at least a week before your appointment, as hair needs to be at least a quarter of an inch long. Avoid applying any products to the area before your appointment as well.

3. Let Your Waxer Know If You’re A Newbie

Any body waxing bar professional wants to know if it’s your first time. They’ll go a little slower and walk you through the process.

4. Don’t Be Self-Conscious

The professionals who administer Brazilian wax services have seen it all. Don’t be self-conscious about what you look like.

5. Take An Ibuprofen

While nothing will make the process completely painless, an Ibuprofen can help to reduce the pain a bit and prevent redness.

6. Relax and Breathe

The more tense you are, the more unpleasant the experience will be. Instead, just relax and remember to breathe.

7. Let Your Waxer Know If You Don’t Want To Be Fully Bare

If the idea of going fully bare freaks you out, tell your waxer at the beginning of your appointment. She or he will be happy to leave a small patch of hair, frequently known as a “landing strip.”

8. Don’t Be Freaked Out By The Tweezers

If your waxer pulls out some metal tools, don’t be freaked out! They’re just doing away with some ingrown hairs or bumps, which absolutely everyone has down there. The finished, smooth result will be worth it.

9. Enjoy The Results!

Shaving downstairs is a real hassle. A Brazilian gives you a gorgeously smooth finish for up to a full month. You’ll feel cleaner, smoother and more fabulous.

If you’re ready to finally try a Brazilian for yourself, call our Cary body waxing salon today to schedule an appointment.

Ace your first Brazilian!!

Brazilian Blog title

It’s the service that waxing newbies are most afraid to book, BUT here’s the thing, it is actually the most popular body waxing service! Which means it can’t be that bad!

With a few insider tips you can make your first Brazilian wax a breeze! We asked our resident waxing queen, Caitlyn Monsees, to give you a list of her top 5 tips and tricks. She says:

Caitlyn Blog PostShe says:

  1. Buff before you bare: Exfoliating before every wax is a must but people always forget that exfoliating and moisturizing go hand in hand; even down there. Exfoliating and moisturizing before and in between every wax will help to prevent ingrown hairs and make for a cleaner wax. (Ask us about our pineapple enzyme exfoliant).
  2. Hide your razors: Do not shave for at least 2 weeks in preparation for your wax. A good rule of thumb is the length of a grain of rice, or a quarter of an inch. Anything longer than an inch will need to be trimmed. Trimming during your appointment adds extra time, which results in a charge for this service. Save your bucks by just trimming at home before your appointment.
  3. Avoid feeling the burn: No working out for 24 hours after your Brazilian wax. Your pores will be open and very susceptible to bacteria. The rise in your body temperature combined with sweat makes for the perfect home for bacteria. Use this as an excuse to skip the gym; and maybe order pizza.
  4. Skip the stimulants: Caffeine and alcohol can make your skin particularly sensitive. Try to go 24 hours before your wax without these vices. If you can’t start your day without your coffee, book your wax first thing in the morning and reward yourself after.
  5. The mythical perfect wax: Your Brazilian will not be perfect after your first wax. Shaving makes your hair blunt and dense. Dense hairs can break off instead of being removed by the root during a wax. New growth is fine and has a smaller root, which is perfect for waxing. Hair also comes and goes in cycles just like the hair on your head. Repeated waxes received every four weeks will help to insure the alignment of these growth cycles for less growth in between.

There you have it ladies! Take a moment and a deep breath and book your first Brazilian. We know you want to…

See you soon!
