So you’re getting ready for your first Bikini or Brazilian wax, or are you looking for tips and tricks to make your next Bikini, Brazilian or even Manzilian wax as comfortable of an experience as possible. Please, feel free to read this guide beginning to end to get the scoop.
Because you are removing hair from the root and exfoliating the skin, after a wax, you’ll probably find that your skin is now so smooth.
When your hair does grow back after waxing, it will grow back weaker, making it finer, softer and more sparse.
Since your hair is being removed by the root, it will take much longer to grow back than with shaving or other types of hair removal.
Many people find different hair removal methods like epilation and creams irritating to the skin. However, waxing rarely causes this problem if it’s done by a licensed professional.
Waxing provides smoother and longer lasting results by removing the hair from the root, whereas shaving cuts the hair right at the skin’s surface, causing a prickly feel right after shaving. Waxing also provides an exfoliation, removing dead skin cells that are on the surface of the skin. In other words, waxing will give you the smoothest skin – and the best hair removal experience.
Epilation is very similar to shaving or tweezing, and removes the hair right at the skin’s surface. Epilation is done by machine, it’s slower and can be significantly more painful than waxing. Waxing provides smoother and longer lasting results with far less pain.
Waxing provides smoother and longer lasting results by removing the hair from the root. Creams only remove the hair right below the surface of the skin. They can be very irritating to the skin as the cream can cause burning, tingling or hyperpigmentation if left on for too long.

Thinking about laser hair removal? Laser hair removal may or may not provide a permanent solution. Results vary due to varying skin tones and hair types. It can also be very expensive, especially if it doesn’t turn out to be a permanent hair removal solution for you. Waxing works on everyBODY and provides smooth results for three to four weeks and is very cost effective.
The pain that sometimes gets associated with Bikini, Brazilian, and Manzilian waxing is mostly caused by anxiety and tension a person feels while on the waxing bed or leading up to the appointment. The more relaxed you are, the less painful the experience will be.
The hair should be at least a 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch long (about the length of a grain of rice). If it is your first time waxing, then I recommended you refrain from shaving for at least two to three weeks before your reservation. After your first wax, it is recommended to wax every three to four weeks.
I can absolutely wax you when its "Shark Week". Please know that the area is often more sensitive during this time, so you may experience more discomfort than usual. In order to complete the service, you will need to wear a tampon.
Congratulations! yes, you can still wax. However, you may experience more sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. I will make you as comfortable as possible during the service.
I will not perform services on sunburned skin or skin that is irritated. When your skin has healed, you can call to book an appointment.
Waxing areas with tattoos is no problem and will not cause problems to the art or your skin. Waxing will help brighten the tattoo by removing the dead skin cells on top of it. I prefer that you remove your piercing. If you cannot remove your piercing, No problem, I will have to go around it and may leave a couple of hairs that are to close.
We are so happy to announce that masks will no longer be required beginning Saturday, March 12th per the lifting of the mask mandate in Oregon State. Of course, we welcome anyone who still feels more comfortable wearing a mask.
See you soon!
