To wax or not to wax: that is the question. Sydney-siders, you want to look and feel gorgeous whether you are brunching at the Grounds of Alexandria or tanning at Bondi. We at Bookwell have got you covered. Look through our list of waxing salons in Sydney and never wonder if you remembered to shave your legs on date night again.
Our waxing therapists are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. They’ll put you immediately at ease. First, they will apply wax to your skin and leave it to cool. The therapist will then apply waxing strips, which they will pull off against the direction of the hair growth. The wax should never feel too warm, which is why a good waxing therapist is important.
It takes ages to grow back. Unlike shaving, waxing removes the hair from the root. Depending on how quickly your hair grows back, this can last from three weeks to eight weeks.
When your hair does grow back, it will be thinner. Waxing damages the hair follicle resulting in thinner, lighter re-growth. In some cases, the hair follicle can stop producing hair. This means you can go longer in-between appointments.
Waxing also works as exfoliation. It removes hair as well as the top layer of dead skin cells. Win meet win.
Like every good Scout knows, it’s best to be prepared. You can prep your skin to help minimise your discomfort and get the best results. Firstly, your hair should be at an ideal length. We recommend two to three weeks growth. Too short and the wax will not be able to ‘grab’ the hair; too long, and the process may be more painful. You should gently exfoliate your skin leading up to the appointment. This helps the wax to adhere to the hair, and not the skin.
