First Brazilian Bikini waxing or sugaring?

What you should know.

Bra·zil·ian Bi·ki·ni 

/brəˈzilyən/ /biˈkēnē/

noun

Removing all of the hair from the belly button to the back side with the option of leaving a strip or triangle as little or as much as you want. Not to be confused with a regular bikini wax or sugar which does not cover the intimate areas. 

The benefits:

1.

Waxing and Sugaring are not only great for removing hair but also great exfoliators! Sugar will only stick to dead skin cells, wax can stick to both dead and live skin. 

2.

Your skin will become so smooth due to removing the hair from the root and the recommended exfoliating and moisturizing after care. No more itchy dry flaky skin from razors or other products!

3.

Shaving every day? Enjoy longer lasting results with sugaring or waxing because we are removing the entire hair and root, not just slicing off the visible top with shaving. You will save so much time without needing to shave. every. day. 

4.

When (if) the hair finally grows back after sugaring or waxing, it grows back as a thinner and softer follicle without the itchy regrowth. Shaving on the other hand results in a prickly blunt follicle which irritates and itches. Hair removed by waxing and sugaring grows back less and less each time because the root is removed and over time, you may experience permanent results as you repeat services. Shaving hair actually invigorates growth. Because of this it is highly recommended to not shave between sugaring or waxing sessions.

5.

Say goodbye to red, irritated skin from harsh chemicals! Hair removal creams and epilation, can damage and irritate the skin. I use specially formulated waxes for your skin type designed to leave your skin smooth and soft. Sugar is an all natural mixture of water, sugar, and lemon juice which makes it the softest choice for sensitive skin.

The prep:
Relax.

Don't stress. I am here to make your experience relaxing and as pain free as possible. There is no waiting room, no mystery waxer,no receptionist (those two in front are definitely not mine!) You get me or Kiana, and our only focus is you, expect to be pampered.

You're Ready.

Your hair should be at least 1/4" in length, that's about two weeks of growth. 1/2" is great for really coarse hair.  Subsequent waxes and sugarings need about 3-4 weeks of growth. 

Skip  the joe.

Caffeine is a strong stimulant, you may want to avoid consumption for a few hours before your appointment. Don't tan or use spray tan 24 to 48 hours before your appointment .

Let me know.

Let me know if you are taking Accutane, Retin-A or retinol. Those are incompatible with facial waxing/sugaring.

The Service:

1.

We are in Building C of Copper Plaza at 404 Brunn School Rd in Santa Fe. 

3.

You'll disrobe from the waist down in the changing area. I have specially ph-balanced wipes to freshen up! Then, hop on the table. Don't worry- I see all body types, I think we are all beautiful!

5.

Next, we remove the hair! Sugar is applied at or slightly warmer than room temperature. Or if you chose soft wax, it is applied at near body temp and removed with muslin strips. I'm fast but thorough- expect a brazilian wax to take about 15 minutes, sugar takes  a bit longer- about 30 minutes.

2.

Have a seat outside and text us that you have arrived. We will come out and greet you and show you around. Please do not check-in with the women in the front.

4.

I will then prep your skin with a gentle cleanser for sugaring and a soothing oil if waxing.

6.

Finally, I will use an astringent to clean and calm the skin,  reducing inflammation. I will also apply a moisturizer to nourish and hydrate the skin. The moisturizer also helps to prevent ingrown hairs, moisturize frequently!

Aftercare:

Moisturize and Exfoliate.

Make sure to exfoliate and moisturize frequently to make it easy for the new hairs to emerge. I have great brushes and gloves in my salon. 

The first wax or sugaring removes most of the hair that has grown above the skin. Some hairs may have been too short or still growing beneath the skin. Your next few sessions will catch these and after three waxes or so you will enjoy even longer lasting smooth skin.

The first session is over!  Each subsequent session will be easier and easier, and your skin will thank you. Hair growth is different for all, but typically every 3-4 weeks is a reasonable schedule for sessions.

Now go home and throw out all of your razors because this will change your life!
