Is 2021 the year that you’ll get your first Brazilian wax? Maybe you’re planning a summer vacation after far too many months inside, or perhaps you’re simply ready to try something bold and new. No matter why you’re considering a Brazilian wax, we know that you probably have a few questions about the process.

Below, we’ll explain five helpful tips that can help you prepare for your appointment. If you would like to schedule an appointment with these tips in mind, just contact a Bye Bye Hair location near you!

Five Tips for a Brazilian Wax

Don’t Shave Beforehand

Many people make the mistake of shaving before their appointment. After all, shorter hair means that the wax will be easier to remove, right?

Not quite.

It turns out that the ideal hair length is approximately a quarter inch. Hair that’s much shorter is harder to pull, which means that you’ll either need to come back for an appointment once it’s grown out, or your waxer will need to pull harder.

Wear Loose Clothing to Your Appointment

The purpose of a Brazilian wax is to make you more comfortable, and while the results certainly will, wearing tight-fitting clothing to your appointment won’t! Your skin will likely be somewhat sensitive in the hours after your wax, so plan to wear comfortable, breathable clothing.

Follow Aftercare Instructions

At Bye Bye Hair, we want our clients to look and feel their absolute best when they walk out of our waxing salon. We provide thorough aftercare instructions to all of our clients in order to ensure that your results last for as long as possible. We highly recommend following the instructions closely to make sure that you’re getting the best possible results from your appointment!

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions

Are you feeling nervous about your waxing appointment? Do you have questions that haven’t been answered on our website? A Brazilian wax is an intimate service that requires a high level of trust between us and our clients, and we want you to feel comfortable asking us anything and everything. We’ve been in the industry for long enough to have seen and heard it all, and we never judge our clients’ questions. Just give us a call or send us an email to let us know more about how we can help!

You’ll Love the Results!

We’ve listed this point last, but it’s certainly not the least important thing you need to know before a waxing appointment!

It’s easy to get caught up in the details and curiosity about what the process will be like, but it’s important to remember that you’re doing this for yourself. Just like haircuts, tattoos, and any other service designed to boost your confidence and help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted, a Brazilian wax will help you look and feel your absolute best.
