Before Your Waxing Appointment
• It is best to leave at least three weeks of re-growth before making your appointment to ensure the hair doesn't break during treatment. This will allow the wax to grip the hair effectively, pulling it from the root, which will ensure a smooth finish.
• Prep the area during the week prior to your appointment by exfoliating the area to be waxed. This will open up the follicle and minimise the chance of ingrown hairs occurring.
• On the day of your waxing appointment do not apply any creams or lotions on the area to be treated.

Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation.

After Your Waxing Appointment
Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24-48 hours.

This means:
• No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
• No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
• No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).
• No sport, gym work or other exercise.
• Wear clean, loose fitting clothes to avoid friction on the area.
• Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
• Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.

You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to fall into a growth cycle that gives the best results. Please do not shave between your appointments, if you would like to maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.

Before & After Your Spray Tanning Appointment

Exfoliate and wax before your tanning session.

Prepping your skin for a spray tan is essential if you want to ensure that your golden glow lasts as long as possible. Fortunately most of the prep work is probably a firm fixture in your beauty routine anyway; good news for us lazy ladies. Read on for some specifics:

Remove unwanted hair. Try to shave or wax at least 24 hours before your spray tan. If you don’t remove unwanted hair your tanning solution will cling to your hair shafts, creating a dotty and uneven finish. Waxing is an excellent choice as it will prevent hair growth for up to a month but be sure to this well before your treatment. This will allow your follicles to close up, ensuring that your tan looks balanced, even and natural. Shaving too early after your tanning treatment will strip your skin of its caramel hue so waxing is an excellent option for prolonging your colour.

Exfoliate. The night before your tan exfoliate your skin with a gentle exfoliator or scrub to slough off the top layer of dead skin cells. Removing these cells will reveal the fresh skin cells beneath, which will form the smooth base that your spray tan will stick to. The fresher your skin cells, the longer the life of your tan – it’s as simple as that.

Apply nail polish. Your therapist will usually apply a barrier cream to your nails before you enter the spray tan booth to prevent tanning solution from staining your nail bed and cuticles. Apply nail varnish to your fingernails and toes before your treatment for an extra layer of protection.

Avoid perfumes and deodorant on the day of your tan because some of the chemicals found in these products can prevent fake tan from adhering to the skin smoothly. Also remember to tie your hair back and use a headband to stop any solution from getting on your hairdo. Bring along some loose clothing, like a baggy t-shirt or dress, to wear after your session, which will allow for your freshly applied tan to dry thoroughly.
