Before you come to your waxing appointment, there are a few things you can do to ensure the best possible wax and prevent ingrown hairs. There are also a few things you need to know after your wax.
Before Bikini Waxing Guide
Before you come to your waxing appointment it’s important to prepare to get the best possible result.
- Take a nice warm shower and thoroughly clean your pubic area
- Your pubic hair should not be too long or too short. Between 0.5cm and 1.5cm is ideal
- Gently exfoliate the area prior to waxing
- Avoid swimming or too much sun 24 hours before
- Consider what underwear you are wearing. Can the waxer work around it? The area will be sensitive after, so not too tight.
