This Waxing 101 guide will help you prepare for your first appointment and give you an idea of what to expect at our Tabernacle, NJ spa.

Pre-Waxing Preparation: Steps to Take Before Your Appointment

To make your waxing experience as pleasant as possible, follow these pre-waxing tips:

  1. Let your hair grow: Allow your hair to grow to at least 1/4 inch in length before your appointment. This ensures optimal wax adherence and effective hair removal.
  2. Exfoliate: Gently exfoliate your skin a day or two before your appointment to remove dead skin cells and help prevent ingrown hairs.
  3. Cleanse: Shower and cleanse your skin on the day of your appointment, but avoid applying lotions or oils.
  4. Wear comfortable clothing: Choose loose, breathable clothing to minimize irritation after your appointment.

  1. Consultation: Our licensed esthetician, Kristen, will discuss your waxing needs, address any concerns, and ensure you’re comfortable with the process.

  3. Wax application: High-quality wax will be applied in the direction of hair growth, ensuring minimal discomfort.

Aftercare Tips: Taking Care of Your Skin Post-Wax

To maintain smooth, healthy skin after your waxing appointment, follow these aftercare tips:
