Do I LOOK or SMELL weird? Am I the Hairiest person?
Ok so we have seen it all and we do not judge you nor do we smell you since we are so busy making sure that you are comfortable. Also since we are professionals who have done Brazilian Bikini waxes million of times, we are only looking for the hair that needs to be waxed and nothing else at all.
Mother Nature just gave me a visit, can I still get a wax?
Yes, if this is the only time that works for you then we have no problem waxing you as long as there is a tampon. Heads up though you maybe a little more sensitive than usual. For Wax Virgins we really advise you to wait until right after your visit from mother nature is done to get a bikini wax. The best time for a bikini wax is within the first week right after your period is done.
So the thought of getting a wax done totally scares you and your not sure if the pain is worth it?
Well, let us tell you that it is so worth it and you will wish you had lost your wax virginity way sooner. At least that’s what all of your Brazilian bikini wax virgins confess at the end. Ok so this is not a massage for sure but at Allure Body Bar we will make this as painless as possible and before you know it you will be hair-free. You may wish to take all the hair off from the front or leave a little design behind like the “landing strip”, “love triangle” or “martini bikini”. If you are not sure how much you would like to wax off than our wax experts will help you with this. And remember this is your first time getting one done, but it’s not our first time doing one so relax a little will you.
Is there anything I can do on my part to help with the pain?
There are a few things you can do to make this as smooth of a ride a possible, please follow all or most of the suggestions: do not do tanning 48 hours before or after your wax, do not come around or on your period, no lacy underwear’s for 24 hours after, no HANKY PANKY for at least 24 hours after ( we are serious, show some love for your goodies ), take two pain killers 30 min before your appointment and you can arrive 30 min before your appointment to get the no scream cream to apply to your goodies. Seriously though don’t think too much, once you get your first one done it will change your life for the better.
If you never had a Brazilian or Bikini wax before you might be wondering what is the whole process like?
Let us remind you that all of our wax experts are confident and professional with what we do. You can call us or book your appointment online. At the time of your appointment, you will arrive a few minutes before at Allure Body Bar so that you can relax a little and not feel so rushed. If you would like to use the numbing no scream cream please arrive 30 min before your appointment time and let our reception know upon arrival. We will take you to your room where you will be provided with intimate area wipes to freshen up with and a towel to cover your bottom up with. There’s nothing to feel uncomfortable about and remember we see naked people all day. After this your wax expert will arrive in the room and ease you into the process, the wax will come on and off until the desired bikini wax is achieved or your cupcake is hair-free. Your wax expert will leave the room and you will apply our all-natural petroleum and paraben-free LoveFresh Lotion to your cupcake. Welcome to the smooth side, you are no longer a Brazilian wax virgin.
Still Not Sure?
Seriously stop researching more into it. The more you search the web or ask your friends the more hesitant you will be. If you hear a horrible wax story (which you will) it is because they, unfortunately, ended up in bad hands and all our wax experts are specially trained in the Quickzilian (“because we do it quickly “) Brazilian Wax technique. So come on just do it! Don’t beat around the “Bush”.
Will my bikini / brazilian wax hurt?
Ahhh…YES. Well, this is not the most relaxing treatment to get done but it needs to be done sooner than later. The good thing is we can’t even count the times we’ve heard “that was not so painful” after a bikini wax. Our experienced wax experts have preformed this service over a million times
Especially if your waxing virgins, it is important not to get your first wax done three days before an event. Also, try to avoid coming in for a wax seven days before you get your period or while you’re on it. You can take Advil 30 minutes before the appointment since it helps with the anticipation part of the wax. The great news is after the first one it’s all not so bad and the more regular you become the less hair and pain you have to deal with.
Guys Get It Too!
Male Manzilian Wax
What exactly is a “Manzilian” bikini wax ?
In a Manzilian wax, we remove all the hair from the men’s front “firecracker” including the sack and crack. Don’t worry guys with our experienced waxologist your “goods” are in safe hands.
Will a male or a female wax me?
So we are a unisex wax bar, therefore we do have a male staff member on our team. You can relax he only dose front desk (and scares the creepy men away) so to answer your question all of your wax services are done by professional female waxologist. Oh yeah, and we will only remove your hair so if you’re looking for some “happy endings” you got the wrong place, buddy.
I’m nervous…will my Manzilian bikini wax hurt?
You betcha! we would be lying if we said no. The pain fades within a few seconds and with each following wax session, the pain gets less which makes it easier to deal with. You can take two pain killers 30 min before the session and/or arrive 30 min before your appointment time and purchase the “no scream cream” we won’t judge.
What if I accidentally get aroused?
Let’s face it.. somethings are not in your total control. At the same time, you have to remember that this is a professional service of hair removal only. In the unlikely event that this happens to you – “DONT PANIC”. There’s no need to be embarrassed, your waxologist will ignore it and trust us it will go down pretty fast since there’s nothing exciting about getting a wax.
Why is the after care for my Manzilian wax so important?
For the next 24-48 hours after your wax is done it is important for you to keep the area cool and dry. This means avoid touching it, rubbing it, or itching it, all of these things can cause bacteria to spread to the open pores which at times can cause a white little pimple-like reaction. After the 48 hours all, you have to remember to do scrub, scrub, scrub, scrub it well and scrub it good. At least 4-5 times a week using the exfoliation gloves and we swear by our LoveFresh natural Body scrubs that will also help keep the area hydrated. If your someone with curly hair this means you need to really pump up your scrubbing routine. Don’t worry we have some medicated stuff for your “good stuff” to keep it scar and ingrown free, your waxologist will customize the best routine for you so relax.
How long dose it take to get a Manzilian bikini wax?
It’s hard to predict an exact time but you should be in and out in about 30 minutes.
FAQ In General From Our First Time Bikini Wax Virgins
Mow That Lawn
If you have a question, just shoot us an e-mail. Every question is a good question.
Is there anything I can do to prep before a bikini wax to avoid ingrown hairs?
Preventing ingrown hair is something that needs to be done not just before the wax appointment but on a weekly basis. Before the appointment, We recommend for you to gently exfoliate the area to be waxed the night before in the shower. The reason we say the night before is so that the skin has time to breathe and relax before all the fun your body had to go through in the wax session.
What exactly is an ingrown hair?
An ingrown hair is a hair that has trouble pushing out and up through the skin, instead, it curls back down and under the skin. The hair gets trapped under the dry dead skin, that is why it is very important to scrub as often as you can. Sometimes ingrown hair are more common on areas that get more friction like the bikini line or the area on your legs where clothes fit a little snugger. With the clothing rubbing back and forth on the skin it can irritate the hair as it tries to push through the skin. Due to the irritation, it produces a red raised that looks similar to a pimple, which at times can get inflamed and feel really soar. Sometimes an ingrown hair can feel itchy or sore especially if they are inflamed and often if you pick at them you can actually end up making the situation worst than it actually is. So keep those hands off your goodies and seek advice from a professional.
Does having a particular hair type make me more susceptible to getting them?
If you have coarse and or curly hair you are more prone to getting ingrown hair. The curly hair has the tendency to try and coil back under the skin, either after a wax or a shave. We find also the ethnic background is another factor in who might also be more prone to getting ingrown hair. People with African American, Asian and Hispanic backgrounds also are more prone to getting these bumps on their faces as well as bodies. There is also more oil production in these cultures which is great for younger-looking skin but sucks when it comes to razor bumps and ingrown hair. We do have great products and usually set our clients up with a great home care regime to get this situation in control. Facial scars from ingrown can be embarrassing and we are here to help people get aware of ways to prevent these bumps from happening.
What do I need to avoid right after a wax?
After getting any of your body parts waxed, it is important to follow a few steps for post-care so that your skin does not get irritated and for preventing bumps. Our Post care steps are tried and tested by us and our clients found these steps to be very effective in order to have a great post-wax experience. Please check our post-wax care page out
What kind of underwear should I wear after the wax?
Dress Wisely and Don’t wear tight panties for the next few days. Wear plain cotton underwear after your wax for at least 24 hours, lace or un-breathable materials can irritate the area. Also, pat your goodies dry after using the washroom instead of using the wiping motion or even better try wet wipes. They need some tender love after all that wax action.
You said no sex for 24-48 hours post wax—why is that?
We always recommend to get the wax done before a “special event” at least 48 hours before, the reason is that the freshly waxed skin is a little tender to the touch and any sort of “friction” may irritate you goodies and good. I mean like if you really really can not wait then here is a little tip. Soak your goodies or goods in a warm not hot bath with 3 cups of Epson salts for 20 min. After the bath, you should wear loose cotton underwear. But seriously avoid any hanky panky for at least 24 hours.
What are some common mistakes people make after waxing?
One of the most common mistakes that people make after a wax session is that they hit the gym for a workout. After your skin is freshly waxed the pores are open and the chances of sweat sitting in the pores and cause breakouts are very high. Also, the friction from the clothing rubbing back and forth in a work out session can really irritate the freshly waxed skin. Another very common mistake that people make is that if they have a trip coming up they go for a tanning session either before or right after a wax. This is a big NO NO since a tanning session will feel like cooking your skin. Also, tanning beds are not safe for your skin, especially after a wax session. We do not recommend tanning beds either 48 hours before or after a wax session. There are a few more post-wax tips we recommend listed on our website for everyone to follow.
Is waxing more or likely to leave you with ingrown hairs than other forms of hair removal? And why?
Waxing is probably the one hair removal service that will actually help you get less ingrown hair with time compared to shaving,in-home epilating machines, or using hair removal creams. A lot of people believe this myth that waxing causes more ingrown hair. However this is not true, it is the lack of exfoliation at home that causes ingrown hair. When you shave or use hair removal creams that hair is basically cut at the surface of the skin, so when it grows back it is thicker and healthier in growth. Also, the hair grows back within a day or two and as it does it irritates the skin and causes bumps and or ingrown hair. If you were to epilate hair removal machine it causes most of the time breakage in the hair. Since the method of hair removal looks like a bunch on tweezers trying to pull the hair from the roots and as it does some of the hair breaks and coils back under the skin since the tweezer-like machine pinched too hard or pulled the hair in the wrong direction. Now we are left with waxing as the form of hair removal when this is done from a professional waxer the hair is completely removed from the roots making it grow back thin and soft. With each wax session, this hair becomes thin and soft which does not irritate the skin as it tries to grow back. Also, the hair-free period between each session becomes longer. Exfoliation in-home at least a few times a week is highly recommended with either form of hair removal to prevent ingrown hair.
