I just shaved, how long should I wait before coming in for waxing?

Wait at least two weeks before waxing after shaving. This gives your hair enough time to grow to the optimal length for waxing, which is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch. If your hair is too short, the wax won't be able to grip it properly, and you'll be more likely to experience ingrown hairs. If your hair is too long, it can be more painful to wax and may break off instead of being removed from the root.

Here's why:

  • When you shave, you only cut the hair at the surface of the skin. The root of the hair remains intact, so the hair will start to grow back quickly.
  • Waxing removes the hair from the root, so it takes longer for the hair to grow back.
  • If you wax before your hair has grown to the proper length, the wax won't be able to grip the root of the hair, and it won't be removed completely. This can lead to ingrown hairs, which are painful and unsightly.

Tips for preparing for a wax:

  • Exfoliate your skin the day before your appointment to remove any dead skin cells. This will help to prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Avoid using any lotions or oils on your skin on the day of your appointment. This can make the wax less effective.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your appointment. This will make it easier for the esthetician to wax your hair.
