How long should one’s hair be in order to make waxing effective?

Hair 1/4 – 1/2 of an inch is generally needed in order for waxing to be successful. Typically, aestheticians suggest not to shave for three weeks prior to a waxing session. If hair is too long, it can get in the way. We do not trim at Spa Sophia. When trimming at home, please err on the side of leaving the hair longer. If hair is too short, the wax will not adhere.

How long should I expect after my waxing service for hair to grow back?

Waxing only removes hair temporarily. It typically it takes 3-6 weeks for the re-growth of hair in an area that has been waxed. This varies for each person.

Is waxing painful?

We’ve searched far and wide for wax that is the most effective, yet gentle wax on the skin. By using quality products and proper technique, the pain of waxing is significantly minimized. Taking an over the counter pain reliever and avoiding waxing near your cycle can help reduce discomfort.

What is the difference between a bikini and Brazilian wax?

A bikini wax eliminates the hair around the bikini area so that no unruly hairs poke out of a swimsuit or lingerie. A Brazilian wax eliminates all hair in the pubic region with the option of a small strip or triangle.

Is it required to be fully undressed for a bikini wax?

If you are getting a Brazilian taking the underwear off completely makes the experience faster and thus less painful. Underwear can be left on for a bikini wax.

Can I be waxed while I’m on my period?

Yes, we are more than happy to wax you while you have your period, simply freshen up and change your tampon before your appointment. We have personal wipes and tampons available for you to use in our restroom.
