WHAT TYPE OF WAX IS USED? Hard wax is used for all waxing at The Pearl. It is superior to both strip wax and sugaring in it's strength and ability to thoroughly remove hair by the root, while simultaneously not sticking to and damaging the delicate skin. It provides a super smooth result with the least amount of pain possible and is suitable for all face, bikini, and body waxing.
HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR NEED TO BE TO GET WAXED? Hair should be at least 1/4" long (about the size of a grain of rice) but a little longer is ok too! Please do not shave for a week to 10 days prior to your appointment for best results. A minimum of 3 weeks since your last wax is recommended. For fully grown hair, trimming is suggested, just be sure to leave at least 1/4". No trimming is done in office.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO GET WAXED TO MAINTAIN MY RESULTS? After your wax you will enjoy up to 2 weeks of hair free time, followed by a gradual regrowth phase. I recommend waxing every 4 weeks with no shaving in between until your hair has permanently become finer and thinner. At that point 5-6 weeks is the recommended schedule.
WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER AFTER WAXING? No! Quite the opposite actually. The idea that hair grows back thicker is based on shaving- the hair doesn't grow back thicker, it just looks and feels thicker because it has been cut with blunt edge at it's thickest point (the base) and as it grows out more it feels prickly. When a hair is pulled out by the root via waxing, the hair follicle produces an entirely new hair with a thin tapered end that can push through a very small pore opening. So a waxed hair will feel softer after regrowing than a shaved hair. What's even more exciting is that by waxing regularly- every 4 weeks- the hair follicle becomes damaged and produces weaker, finer, thinner and lighter hairs that are not only more pleasant to the touch, they are also progressively less and less painful to wax.
WHAT ARE THE LONG TERM BENEFITS TO WAXING? As mentioned above, the greatest long term benefit to a consistent waxing routine is the permanent damage to the hair follicle that can totally change the landscape of your body hair for the better, forever freeing you from the discomfort of prickly shaved stubble. Many clients notice a marked improvement in their hair texture after only a few waxes, and the results just get better and better over time, often with entire vast areas of skin experiencing virtually no regrowth.
I AM NERVOUS ABOUT GETTING WAXED WHAT SHOULD I DO? First of all girl, just breathe. Most new clients who come in nervous end up saying that it wasn't as bad as they had imagined and that the results are well worth it. Many techniques are utilized to make sure that your experience with waxing is a positive one and that you will become a long term client. The friendly and relaxing ambiance will set you at ease immediately. All clients will be guided toward the service that best suits their needs and hair type, while maintaining a relaxed and calm demeanor. Your comfort is top priority.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? The Pearl is located at 4553 S. Western St. Suite 5. That is inside the Western View Office Park at the southwest corner of 45th & Western all the way BEHIND Taylor's Furniture. Go in the glass door marked "4553" under the sign for The Pearl, and Suite 5 is ahead to the right. Only one client is seen in the office at a time, so if the door is closed please wait in the lobby until your turn. There is a restroom through the kitchenette available for your use.
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Amazing! I got a Brazilian wax and had a great first experience, I will definitely be back! She was so nice and made me feel very comfortable, but also professional. I will NEVER go back to strip waxing after now experiencing a hard wax. By far less pain! I walked out of there happy and satisfied" -Kaylee via Yelp
