It was a great day when I discovered WAXON WAXBAR. Founded by Lexi Miles, this growing chain of waxing spas makes an uncomfortable and sometimes awkward process, easy, affordable, and pain-free. I even look forward to my visit to WAXON. With beach vacation season coming up, we wanted to get tips, advice and the latest waxing news right from the source.
Q: Are there any new trends or innovations in wax that people should keep an eye out for or try?
Hard wax, though not brand new, would be a major waxing innovation and it’s a hot trend that is here to stay! No more getting ‘stripped’ during a Brazilian wax. Hard or ‘hot’ wax, also known as ‘stripless’ wax, is applied to the skin and then removed sans strip. At WAXON the type of hard waxes we use are virtually painless and will give you a flawless result… if you haven’t tried it, we dare you to, you won’t be disappointed!
As for trending areas of the body to wax, Arm waxing is the best-untold secret!! This should be on every Woman’s to do list. Arm waxing is becoming more and more popular every day! Having smooth, hair-free arms makes your arms look leaner and sexier! Try it for yourself – you will thank us later!
HOT TIP: Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion is a must! It acts a tinted moisturizer, and will give you smooth, sexy, defined arms all year long!
(P.S. can be used on face & body – so don’t forget to apply to your arms and sexy stems!)
Q: Is there anyone who shouldn’t get waxed?
In general most people can get waxed and it’s more their current situation or medical condition that would make waxing ‘off limits’ – ie; someone who has a sunburn, is taking Accutane or using Retinol/Retin-A products should avoid waxing. People with diabetes, on blood thinners or with extremely sensitive skin should contact their doctor and/or do a wax test strip before getting a full service.
Q: Can I still get waxed if I have sensitive skin?
Yes, you can and rest assured that at WAXON our waxes are designed for even the most sensitive skins, only adhering to the hairs and not the skin. If you are still unsure, we always recommend you come in and try a test strip to be sure our waxes are suitable for your skin.
With sensitive skin, regardless of what salon/waxbar you go to, getting a test wax strip done is always a good ‘beauty rule’ to follow to avoid any potential irritation or reaction… you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin!
We also recommend going to a professional Esthetician/Waxologist who specializes in just waxing for best results and experience.
Q: I never know when I should go back for my next wax appointment. What are some ways to know when it’s the perfect time to go back?
The ideal hair length is the length of a grain of rice – approximately 2mm, or 4-5 weeks between waxes. If you have shaved, (tisk tisk) then ideally 12 days growth is best. At WAXON we use the incredible super hero hot wax which can pull hair as short as 1mm, so if you are in the need of an emergency wax don’t fret our Waxologists have got you covered!
