Before You Apply the Cirepil Wax, Read This…
Before you put your client in that spa wrap and break out the Cirepil wax, it is important to address any concerns they might have. It’s common for clients to have questions before their first bikini wax. Keep reading for ways to answer common questions first-timers might have.
Why Get a Bikini Wax?
Many people wonder why they should get a bikini wax in the first place. The answer is that the results from a bikini wax last up to four weeks, meaning it’s a much more long-term solution for removing hair than shaving.
What Options Are There?
Generally speaking, there are three styles of waxing with Cirepil wax. If you just want to remove hair from each side of your bikini line, a simple wax is the way to go. A Brazilian wax on the other hand, removes virtually all of the hair from the bikini area. Finally, the full-bush Brazilian style keeps a triangle in the front, but removes the rest of the bikini area’s hair.
When Should I Schedule My Wax?
After a wax, you will need to let your skin heal, so schedule it at least a few days before you plan to wear a swimsuit next. Also avoid scheduling a wax within three days of the beginning of your period, when the skin will be more sensitive.
How Do I Prepare?
To prepare your pubic area, don’t shave; instead, trim your hair down to about a quarter of an inch so the Cirepil wax has enough to latch onto. If you’re not sure how to trim to that length yourself, let the salon or spa know ahead of time, and they’ll handle it for you.
Other preparations include taking a shower or bath beforehand. Also consider using a mild exfoliant for a few days before the appointment. When the appointment itself arrives, make sure your skin is dry, using baby powder if necessary. If you are modest, you can ask if they have a spa wrap you can wear during your appointment.
To get in the right frame of mind, there are a few things you should be aware of:
- The lower part of your body will be fully exposed, and the waxer will get very close to you. However, keep in mind that the waxer sees pubic areas all the time. They will use professional tools like Cirepil wax to give you the best results possible.
- Pain will be present, but it will pass.
- Supplies like hydrocortisone cream can be used to help soothe your skin after the procedure.
