Waxing & Tinting
We offer two different types of wax treatments, Hot Wax and Strip Wax
The type you choose depends on your preference and the area you are having waxed and how it suits your skin. Our therapists will be happy to discuss the options available to you .
This wax consists of beeswax and resin and is melted to a thicker consistency than warm wax. Applied to the skin with a wooden spatula, it coats the hair with a thick layer and hardens around the hair to grip it tightly. Once dry, the wax is flipped up at the corner and pulled off quickly by the therapist. Many people find hot wax less painful than strip wax as the heat allows the pores to open so hair is removed more easily and it is the less sticky option more able to remove shorter hair than warm, strip wax.
This is the most popular method of waxing. It consists of resin, paraffin wax, glucose syrup and honey. Warm wax is smoothed onto the skin in a thin layer and immediately covered with a fabric or paper strip which is pressed/rubbed onto the waxed area before being removed in a quick swipe. Strip waxing is quicker than hot wax and larger areas can be waxed at one go.
Tips for preparing to bare:
Half an hour before you go for a waxing, particularly the bikini, Brazilian or Hollywood wax, taking a couple of regular painkillers may help to desensitise the skin.
Females pain threshold is at its lowest during menstruation, it’s best to avoid this time when booking your wax. Lack of sleep and excessive alcohol the night before can lead to more pain as well
Make sure that the area to be waxed is clean and has no broken skin, scratches or bruising.
Your hair should be around ½ inch long in order for the wax to be able to grip sufficiently.
