Is waxing for you?
Now the hot weather has returned most of us don’t want hairy body parts!!!!
So, who is and is not suitable for waxing?
- There is no age limit to waxing. My oldest client is in his 70s and my youngest client is 12
- Anyone under the age of 16 would need to be accompanied by an adult. Written permission will be needed too
- Anyone with a skin condition i.e. eczema or psoriasis may not be suitable. A consultation with the therapist would be needed
- Contagious skin conditions
- Clients taking must wait 6 months after finishing their medication
- Sunburned, chafed or broken skin
- The use of steroid creams within the last 3 months
- Diabetics would need to ask their health practitioner before treatment
- Anyone on Warfarin would need to be very careful, ask their GP first and make sure the therapist is aware of the condition
- A wide variety of gender identities, male, female, transgender, Agender, Androgyne in our diverse society are all suitable
- I have transgender clients
Does waxing hurt?
It is uncomfortable for most clients, especially the first time, it does get easier
How long does hair have to be?
At least 1cm long
