WAXING

 

Waxing Restrictions

Please read all preparation information so you know what needs to be discontinued or done at home before your service. Please fill out all forms prior to your appointment; the link can be found in your confirmation text or email.

If you have ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR ARE ON ANY MEDICATIONS (any autoimmune diseases, thyroid, diabetes, etc.) please inform your artist PRIOR to booking. You may not be a candidate for waxing, or a doctor's note may be required. If you fail to inform us of any medical conditions or any medications and we are unable to perform your service, your booking fee will be forfeited.

Waxing cannot be performed with the following conditions:

  • Active flare up of autoimmune disorder such as lupus rash or psoriasis 

  • Any active infection (Flu, MRSA, etc.) 

  • Any viral or bacterial skin infection (such as herpes simplex, warts, impetigo, cellulitis, yeast infection, ring worm etc.) 

  • New tattoos or piercings 

  • Active cancer treatment 

  • Acne medications, AHAs, retinols, retinoids, retin-a

  • Eczema, severe acne or any skin inflammation/dermatitis 

  • Scabies or lice 

  • Sexually transmitted infections/ Active outbreaks for bikini or brazilian wax 

  • Any lesions, wounds, recent scars in the area

  • Sunburn in the area 

  • Under 18 for bikini/brazilian waxes 

  • Within 1 month of chemical peel or laser treatments 

  • Blood thinners

 

Other concerning factors for waxing: 

  • Pregnancy- You can still get waxed, but you may be more sensitive especially in the pelvic region 

  • Menstrual Cycle- You can still get waxed while on your period, but you may be more sensitive especially in the pelvic region. Please have a clean tampon, cup or disc in place for a bikini/brazilian wax 

  • Cancer- You can usually be waxed if you are in remission or not being treated with chemotherapy or radiation, and if your skin is well hydrated and in good condition. Medical approval may be needed 

  • Diabetes- You can still get waxed, but there is a higher risk of reactions. Healing may be slower

  • High blood pressure/Heart conditions- May be more sensitive 

  • Thyroid disorders/medication- May be more sensitive. Skin can be more dry so be extra aware of home care routine. Discoloration after waxing can occur 

  • Hormone issues- May be more sensitive and dry. Waxing may not thin hair growth that is caused by uncontrolled hormone imbalance 

  • Autoimmune diseases- You cannot get waxed if rash, wounds or inflammation is present. Waxing may cause discoloration from skin trauma

Waxing Preparation

Prior to waxing services: 

  • Ensure your hair has 3-6 weeks of growth (must be about 1/4 inch long for waxing to have good results) 

  • Discontinue the use of chemical exfoliants such as BHAs, AHAs, glycolic or lactic acids, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, retinols and retin-a at least ONE WEEK prior to being waxed. These products can cause the skin to become dry or thinner and increase the chance of skin peeling or "lifting" with the wax ​ 

  • Avoid sun or UV exposure, spray tanning or tanning lotion before your appointment. Sunburned skin CANNOT be waxed, and waxing will remove color from your spray tan ​ 

  • Exfoliating once a week, moisturizing daily, staying hydrated, and exfoliating the day before your wax will help you achieve the best results! 

  • Avoid chemical peels and other strong skincare treatments for one month before your appointment. 

  • Limit your caffeine and alcohol consumption before your waxing service- these can increase your sensitivity and your skin's reaction to being waxed 

  • You must be off of Accutane or any other acne medication for 12 months prior to being waxed.

Brow & Lash Service Preparation

Please read all preparation information so you know what needs to be discontinued or done at home before your service. Please fill out all forms prior to your appointment; the link can be found in your confirmation text or email.

  • Prior to lash lift and brow lamination services: 

  • Come in with a clean face free of makeup. 

  • Ensure your lashes or brows are in healthy condition Lifts and laminations can be damaging to the hairs, you should wait at least 6 weeks between treatments You can use castor oil or growth serum before and in between treatments to maximize the results and maintain healthy brow and lash conditions ​ 

  • Avoid sun and UV exposure prior to service. 

  • Please do not wear contacts to your lash lift appointment 

  • Avoid lash extensions for 4-6 weeks prior to and after lash lift 

  • Any facial procedures such as chemical peels, permanent makeup or surgery must be completely healed.

 

RESTRICTIONS: Treatments cannot be performed on anyone with cysts, sties, inflammation, psoriasis, eczema, acne, cuts, sunburn or other trauma to the area, very sensitive skin (gets hives or blisters from waxing), a history of allergies/reaction to perms, current chemotherapy treatment, or damaged, brittle or weak brow or lash hairs

 

Lash Tint and Brow Henna Preparation

  • Come in with a clean face free of makeup. 

  • Damaged, brittle or weak lashes or brows should not be tinted 

RESTRICTIONS: Treatments cannot be performed on anyone with a history of allergies or reactions to hair color or henna, or anyone with trauma, acne or signs of skin issues in the area


 

Lash Extensions Preparation

  • Please arrive without any eye makeup. 

  • Please avoid caffeine or stimulants before your appointment. This helps to reduce eye twitching and restlessness. You will be lying still for multiple hours (it's okay to fall asleep!)

  • Wear comfortable clothing  

  • Avoid using waterproof mascara for a couple days prior as it can leave a residue that may prevent lashes from adhering properly.

  • Avoid using sunscreens or moisturizers around your eyes prior to your appointment.

  • Don’t curl your lashes prior to your appointment

  • Wear your glasses or remove your contacts prior to your appointment.

 

We recommend that you get your full set of lash extensions 2-4 weeks before any big event, such as your wedding. Then, schedule a fill as close as possible to the event date. This ensures time for any design changes and to monitor for adverse reactions and gives you the best looking results for the big day!

 

RESTRICTIONS: Extensions should not be done on weak, damaged lashes or if you have had a lash lift in the past 4-6 weeks. Extensions should not be done if you have any symptoms of eye infection, irritation, history of lash adhesive allergy or any present trauma to the eyelid skin/lash line.
