How long will my wax last?


Hair typically grows back within two to eight weeks depending on the individual. Because there are three growth cycles in hair growth, you may experience regrowth sooner. This is not the growth of waxed hair rather the emergence of hair that was not present or too short at the time of waxing. With regular waxing you can decrease the frequency with which you’ll need it. Tips prior to waxing:

  • Avoid sun exposure/tanning for at least 5 days prior
  • Avoid heavy exercise/sweating for 8 hours prior
  • Avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. You may take an over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen one hour prior to waxing
  • Remember – you can follow all of these tips and still have some post-waxing irritation due to hormones, stress, general skin sensitivities or other factors. Therefore, for special occasions, it is best to schedule your waxing at least 7 days in advance.
