Preparing for Your
First Brazilian Wax
Shaving your bikini area can be a frustrating and time-consuming task. If you are tired of this process, waxing can be a great solution. Preparing for your first Brazilian wax might make you a little nervous, but there’s no reason to worry. Your wax will be over before you know it and you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of hair removal that lasts for weeks at a time, instead of needing to shave every few days.
Here are some tips for what you should do to get ready for your first Brazilian wax:
Do A Little Research
You don’t need to devote a lot of time into researching the ins and outs of waxing before your appointment, but gathering some information can be very helpful to ease your mind. If you’re comfortable, ask some of your friends about their experiences. No matter how many times you read online that the process isn’t as bad as you think, it’s a lot more reassuring to hear it from someone you know and trust.
Asking around and researching online can also help you make a decision about which studio to make an appointment with. This is a huge factor in whether or not you have a positive Brazilian wax experience. The Waxing Studio has many five-star ratings on Google My Business and Yelp, as well as an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Another thing to check is whether the wax specialists use hard or soft wax. Soft wax sticks to skin and, while it is effective for certain areas of your body, it can make a Brazilian or bikini wax unnecessarily painful. By contrast, hard wax is designed to stick only to hair. At The Waxing Studio, we are committed to giving you a comfortable experience and we only use high-quality hard wax for our intimate waxing services.
Before Your Brazilian Wax Appointment
Before your appointment, there are a few steps you can take to make sure everything goes smoothly. The first is to stop shaving. This will give your hair time to grow out. The longer it is, the easier it is for the wax to stick to it without adhering as much to your skin. Once you see how much easier waxing is in comparison to shaving, we’re sure you will be a longtime customer.
We also recommend taking a warm shower or bath before your appointment and using an exfoliating scrub in the area you are waxing. Being clean can help you feel less awkward. The warm water and exfoliation also help open up your pores, which makes it easier to remove hair.
If you are concerned about your pain tolerance, you can take some over-the-counter pain medication about an hour before your appointment. This is by no means necessary, but some women find that it helps them feel more relaxed.
Relax and Get Comfortable
The absolute best thing that you can do to make your first Brazilian wax more pleasant is to relax. When you are overly anxious, your muscles tense up and the wax will be more painful. No one would argue that waxing feels good, but it definitely is not as bad as most people expect, and it is over very quickly.
You should also feel comfortable with letting your wax artist know about any questions or concerns you have and how we can make your experience more pleasant. We can promise that we have heard nearly everything before.
After your wax is complete, we will go over tips for how to prevent ingrown hairs and let you know when you should return for your next waxing. Our studio has many high-quality products that you can buy to reduce redness and soothe any irritation.
