Summer 2019 - I am currently unable to take any new clients for waxing (with the except of facial requirements). This is due to a high demand, I am also struggling with my back! My apologies.
Introducing Perron Rigot Hot Wax!
There are numerous waxes available on the market for therapists to use. Having worked with many (some good and some not so good!) I am pleased to now offer Perron Rigot as my preferred choice in hot waxing. Perron Rigot is a French brand of exceptional quality renowned for its comfort and efficiency.
I use both warm/creme wax (with cotton strips) as well as hot wax depending upon the type of hair to be removed. For the face I use a roller system with warm wax, the fine roller allows precise application of the wax making it perfect for eyebrows and the upper lip. I can however use hot wax for the brows if you prefer.
Advanced/Intimate Bikini Waxing
Please do not hesitate to call and discuss your bikini waxing requirements with me. I understand this is an intimate service and I'm here to advise and help you. Depending on the type of hair growth I use a combination of both warm (strips) and Perron Rigot hot wax.
On booking, some ladies ask for hot wax for the entire area. From an experienced therapists perspective (10 years) can I just kindly mention that hot wax is designed for shorter, but predominantly coarser hair. If hair is finer and sparser then hot wax will not efficiently remove it - the strips are far better. I do prefer to 'assess' and use which ever wax I feel will give us the best results. Also, hair needs to be at least 5mm in length, any shorter than this and there is not enough surface area for the wax to grip on to! Hair can be trimmed to approx a quarter of an inch should it be longer than this.
I also offer a bespoke bikini service - some ladies ask for a variation on the above which is fine - just let me know your requirements. I also have 15 years NHS experience as a therapist prior to my career in beauty. So please don't be shy, I have seen lots of bodies and am also a mum of 3!
Waxing during Pregnancy - There is no reason why you cannot be waxed during pregnancy. However it can be more painful and there can be increased erythema (redenning of the skin) and possibly swelling. If you are in your final four weeks please do let me know when you call. This is with regards to midwifery guidelines.
Waxing more than one area? If you would like more than one area waxed then I charge by time taken rather than adding the individual areas.
