We offer a variety of waxing services at Pin-Up Curls. If you are new to Body Waxing, there are a few things you should know prior to your service. Number one, if you're waxing for the first time, especially for a vacation, you'll want to have 2 -3 appointments prior to your vacation. Hair grows on different cycles. It takes a few appointments to get the hair all on the same growth pattern. Secondly, we recommend an appointment 3-7 days prior to your vacation to make sure your body doesn't have a reaction to the wax. Waxing is a fast service that is preformed in under 30 minutes. It can be a little uncomfortable but the good news is that every time it becomes easier and easier as your hair thins out. Feeling a little apprehensive? Rest assured your privacy and comfort are our priority. All body waxing services are performed in private rooms and we provide sheets and robes to protect your modesty.
Here a re a few more things you should know prior to your waxing appointment.
-gently exfoliate 48 hours before your appointment! Removing dead skin cells on the surface ensures that the wax adheres properly, reducing the amount of in-grown hairs.
