Brazilian waxing vs shaving

June 29, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: Caring for your Skin, facial treatments, Guinot Skin Care products, waxing

I have to comment….who wants to shave every day? Nobody that I know of. We have done

countless brazilian waxes. Do you know what a brazilian waxing service consists of?

The brazilian waxing service consists of the entire frontal pubic area and the labia (the lips) and the back

of the buttocks and everything in between. I know it may be uncomfortable to hear but when you need to

be clean and ready for vacation you do what it takes. We have a numbing cream that will help reduce the pain

but it won’t take it away totally. It makes it more bearable. So, with that being said I want to offer

some suggestions to have a successful waxing service. First of all come in after a fresh shower to keep your

private areas clean. Do not use a harsh detergent to scrub because this may make your areas more

sensitive and we know that pulling the hair out by the root is quick by not painless.  the same goes

for all other body parts. We will apply a light antiseptic, the some powder so the wax and the strip

will adhere and it pulls off more efficiently. Any questions? send me your questions here

as a comment and I will be happy to answer them.

Now shaving. Shaving is a low cost at home that normally you can use a soap and you know

that I recommend our goats milk soaps that are so gentle on the skin that shaving is a glide.

Always rinse thoroughly so you don’t leave anything left behind and use a moisturizer that will

protect your skin and moisturize after this major exfoliation. If you have to choose

between a shave and a wax, we recommend the waxing because it lasts up to 3 weeks sometimes

longer  if your hair doesn’t grow in as quickly. Leave the hair grow out to about 1/4″  so that

the waxing specialist has something to grip. Enjoy more free time with your waxing service.

What else can be waxed besides my bikini line?

April 19, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: waxing

Hey everyone! It’s time again for hair removing worship time.  That means setting up a plan with the waxer every four weeks. You heard that right, every 4 weeks. For those of you that need more attention, the hair can be maintained in between with tweezing but I wouldn’t plan for a full out beach trip with your lover if you are in between waxings. You know what I mean. You may want to keep those shorts on just in case.

I have to tell you this story. When I was hitting the beach regularly I only paid attention to myself and the cute guys that were close to our blanket. I went with my girlfriends. Anyway, we took binoculars because we wanted to know what our options were for the weekend. As we were scanning the landscape with bincoluars, we also were alarmed when we saw something peeking out of the sides of the bathing suits, you know where. Alarmed and appalled we would look at each other and do a quick check. You know how it is. You say hey, look over there, do I look like that , am I sticking out. Don’t let this happen to you. From that point on in my young impressionable life, I’ve always stayed clean and freshly groomed in those areas.

In case you didn’t know what a brazilian wax means I’m here to educate. Brazilian wax is when the waxer takes a stronger wax and applies it to 1/4″ to 1/2″ long hair. She will start in the frot and do the entire front of the labia and all hair that is visible in your girlfriend parts the whole way back on the cheeks/buttocks and all of the areas in between the buttocks. That my friend is a full Brazilian wax. A tip is to make sure you have showered prior to your visit. Be prepared to talk about any sensitivies with other waxing areas that you may be interested so that she knows what she has to do for this visit.

  • be prepared to set up a consistent time and follow up appointment
  • discuss areas to be waxed every time
  • discuss costs

This is the best way to have a conversation and work out the uncomfortable items such has “do you wax nipples?”. We would say yes we  or we will tweeze those hairs that are jutting out. We are not uncomfortable. The client can be read a magazine or they decide to make conversation. The waxer still needs to have concentration on the areas that she is working on especially at the back end. They want to get in and get out. We wax everything except testicles. It is super sensitive and the skin is so tender and thin in some areas that we will not wax them. Stomach is not a big deal, you just have to decide how far up on the stomach that you want to be waxed and the sides of the V shape. Some like a strip down the middle and some like it colored. We have seen it all. We have ultimate job satisfaction for a wax well done

Some myths I would like to debunk. Shaving does not make the hair coarse and tweezing them doesn’t make them grow back any faster. The hair you were born with is how many follicles you have naturally. So relax. Hormones will make the hair change in texture around 3-40. You could lose hair “their” as you age or after children. Everyone person is different.

After a good hair removal/waxing, know that we use an anti bacterial astringent that will clean up and you will feel fresh. We have used cremes that can numb the private areas that are more prone to sensitivity. Don’t be afraid to ask.

We recommend that if you man wants his back waxed for the weekend, send him in by Wednesday so he has tine to get comfortable. The same for our women friends. At least the week of and plan ahead. You don’t want to have red bumps sticking out of your bathing suit. Unsitely!
