Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long do I have to let my hair grow out to get waxed?

 For first time guest you MUST WAIT AT LEAST 2-3 WHOLE WEEKS AFTER SHAVING TO GET WAXED. Because you may have been shaving and nairing for so long your hairs will be extremely strong . Therefore even on the first session everything may NOT ALL come up. But dont feel bad Doll, the more you wax the longer your waxes will last.  Always refer to the hair as the size of a rice grain before you come in for your appointment. Again please wait 2 -3 whole weeks after any hair removal methods (other than waxing) to come in for service. 
  • How long will my waxing last?

Most Dolls come in for their appointments every Four Weeks. This is a perfect number because by week 2  you will start to see hair break skin, week 3 is where you see most of the hair sprout up and by week four all the hairs are about the same length. Being consistent with your waxing appointment is the only way to ensure lasting and efficient waxes.But Dolls there is a science to this waxing thing.There are 3 main stages of a hair growth cycle: GROWING PHASE, RESTING PHASE, and TRANSITIONAL PHASE.
At any given time, approximately 80-90% hair follicles are in the growing phase, 2-3% are in the transitional phase and 10-15% are in the resting phase. Most likely there are always some hair present under the skin which has not reached the surface or are above the skin surface but are not long enough to be grabbed.Therefore, waxing may not remove these hair and in the next few days or weeks you may observe visible resurfacing of those hair on your skin. Again, the only way to ensure lasting waxes is consistency with appointments.
  • Is Waxing Painful?

 Your first wax experience will be your most memorable. The first time you wax it is uncomfortable. However, after being consistent you will see the decrease in pain. The whole idea of waxing is taking the hair straight from the bulb and repeating this process while the hair is still weak. The longer you wait in between waxes the more painful it will be. Shaving in between also contributes to pain level. Coming 3 days before your menstral cycle and 3 days after you will be extremely sensitive.Book your appointments around your cycle.
  • Is there any tips to making my wax experience a breeze? Any Tips?

  •  DO NOT SHAVE/ NAIR /BUZZ in between waxes
 
  • REFRAIN from coming  in 3 DAYS BEFORE,3 DAYS AFTER, AND WHILE ON YOUR CYCLE.
 
  • EXFOLIATE EXFOLIATE EXFOLIATE!!!
 
  • MOISTURIZE in between waxes. Brittle and dry hair cracks/breaks and can cause ingrowns and an unpleasant wax experience. Moisturized hair comes up swift and easy.
 
  • Drinking alcohol can cause you to bleed a bit during your waxing
 
  • Excessively drinking coffee before you appointment will make you very sensitive.
 
  • Dont EVER let a season change in between your waxes. This means do not have appointment in June and come back in September. YOU WILL BE IN PAIN!
  • WHats this exfoliating thing? And how do I do it?

To avoid those pesky ingrown hairs and to maintain that smooth feeling after waxing, it is important to exfoliate. Exfoliate means removing the dead skin cells from the skin thereby clearing the way for the newer skin underneath to appear. Exfoliation of the skin is one of the key steps to avoiding ingrown hairs. Exfoliation is needed to remove the dead skin cells, dirt, and clogging oils off the surface of your skin. This will allow the new hairs to grow out easily without curling back into the skin.
 
Besides preventing ingrown hairs , exfoliation can speed up your skin cell turnover promoting glowing skin and make your waxing appointments go faster and smother. The best way to exfoliate after waxing, be it after a brazilian, a underarm wax, arms or legs wax is to buy either a loofah or some type of rough sponge. Put some body wash on the loofah or sponge and scrub the area that was waxed.This should be done 24 HOURS AFTER WAXING and at LEAST THREE TIMES A WEEK!.Get in the habit of scrubbing your whole body and watch to see how soft your skin will feel. Don’t scrub too hard, it is not supposed to hurt!
