Top 5 Tips for Waxing Facial Hair at Home

Most brides choose to wax before their wedding because waxing removes hair for a longer period of time and a pre-wedding wax has better results than any other hair removal method.  Waxing removes the hair at the root and not just at skin level and typically lasts anywhere from three to six weeks so is the ideal hair removal option for your wedding day and honeymoon. So if you’re thinking about waxing before your wedding day, there are a few things you need to take heed of: 

How Soon Before the Wedding Should You Have a Wax?

We recommend to wax 2-3 days before your big day – it’s a huge no-no to wax on the day of the event, especially if you are new to waxing! Those with very sensitive skin might incur slight redness or blotchiness, which will calm down in a day or so, so it is better to ensure you that the redness has disappeared in time. 

How Long Until the Hairs Grow Back After a Wax?

As waxing removes hair straight from the root, brides can expect smooth and hair-free skin for about 2-3 weeks. Hair re-growth will also be finer, or even a lower volume if you wax often, as your hair follicles weaken over time. Most will get a wax about 4-6 weeks after their last treatment. The ideal length for an optimum wax job is 6mm in length for a Brazilian wax.

What’s the Difference Between Wax Beads and Strip Wax?

Wax beads is soft and gentle on the skin, which is excellent for sensitive areas such as the Brazilian and the underarm. The wax hardens and shrink-wraps around hair strands very quickly. This method greatly reduces contact and tugging of the skin during hair removal.

Strip wax, on the other hand requires a piece of strip cloth to aid hair removal. You will apply a thin layer of wax onto the skin, smooth on the strip cloth which is pulled off to remove hair.

What Waxing Method Is Less Painful?

It is not always a case of no pain, our specially formulated hot wax and waxing technique ensures a near painless waxing experience. Depending on the body part, different waxing methods would be more suitable. As a rule of thumb, always opt for a hard wax for a Brazilian as it adheres to the hair follicle and removes the hair gently without tugging the skin. Try not to wax prior to your menstrual cycle because the skin is more sensitive during that period.

How Can You Prevent Ingrowing Hairs?

Shaving is the leading cause of ingrown hair, followed by wearing of tight clothing. Ingrown hair is an unsightly and uncomfortable problem that can lead to infection and scarring if not treated. To prevent this condition, regular exfoliation to removes dead skin and moisturising helps keep skin soft and supple. Pores will be less clogged because congested pores can lead to inflammation or ingrown hair growth. If you do get an ingrown hair, apply Hairgo’ s ingrown hair serum for a couple of days. This will help to reduce irritation and unblock the pore to allow the hair to come through
