1. What is waxing service?

Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to body hair, and then removing this covering and pulling out the hair from the follicle. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic hair (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles, and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.


2. Bikini Waxing

Bikini waxing is normally intended to get rid of the hair that is found growing outside of the region where the bikini bottoms rest. Normally, this process is done when one is putting on bikini bottoms or panties and can either be done by a licensed practitioner or you can do it for yourself at home. The wax is usually applied on the area that has hair after which a wax strip is used to remove it. Compared to the Brazilian waxing process, the bikini waxing is much faster but the level of pain involved in the two processes is at par. The best way to deal with the pain that results from waxing is trying your best to ensure that your body is as relaxed as possible.


3. Brazilian Waxing

The Brazilian waxing process normally involves the removal of hair from the entire region between the belly button and the buttocks. This process usually requires the person on whom the waxing is being done to be fully naked from the waist downwards. It is highly advisable that this process be performed by a licensed professional. The process is intended to get rid of the hair found around the testicles and the vagina. As shocking as it may sound, even men do have Brazilian waxes done. The amount of hair that is usually removed during this process is decided by the client; not all of the hair is removed.


4. Which is better: shave or wax?

Waxing removes the entire hair, from the root or follicle. Waxing for hair removal comes in two consistencies – hard wax and soft wax. ... Compared to shaving, waxing exfoliates more of your skin. Unless you have particularly sensitive skin, waxing will give you very smooth skin because it will remove hair and dead skin.


5. Does it hurt?

Any procedure that requires removing the hair out of follicles is going to be an unpleasant experience. "The good news is, when you start waxing consistently, what we're doing is training the hairs to come out at the same time so they can grow in at the same time," Christine said. "The first time hurts the worst, especially if you've been shaving, but once your hair structure starts changing because of waxing, it becomes so much easier and less painful."
