FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW BAD WILL IT HURT?!

And other questions you’re too embarrassed to ask…

Smooth Moves ~ Waxing FAQs

Waxing leaves the skin soft, smooth and bump-free AND it lasts much longer than most other hair removal methods. It is effective on all hair types. When hair starts to grow back after repeated waxing, it will be softer and sparser. (Oh…and did we mention the benefits to pregnant women?)

That depends on your tolerance for pain, but sure, it will hurt some. Trust our customers, though, it’s worth it! If you’re worried, you can reduce potential discomfort by applying a topical analgesic – like No Scream Cream (available at In the Pink) – 30-45 minutes before your session

We pride ourselves on getting you in and getting the hair off quick. A Brazilian wax at In The Pink takes about 15 minutes from when you hop on the table to when you leave as a happy, satisfied, smooth operator.

A Brazilian wax can remove all the hair from down there – front and back nether regions – leaving you silky smooth everywhere the sun don’t shine! You’ll look and feel so good – and a little naughty at the same time! Spontaneous blushing may ensue.

Not unless you’re a contortionist! Pretzels, anyone? Our professionals can see all the places you can’t. And they have the experience to do the job quickly and effectively. You’ll go from “OK” to “Oh Yeah!” faster than you can say “Clark Kent in a telephone booth”! (well, maybe not quite that fast, but you get the idea, right?)

A Brazilian wax typically lasts three to six weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows back. We recommend waxing every three to four weeks after your first wax for the best results. This will ensure that hair grows back slower and thinner each time.

For a bikini wax, those who frequent the lake, pool or beach benefit from waxing their bikini line every two weeks. But for a full bikini or Brazilian bikini service, you’re recommended to come in every three to four weeks. This allows the proper amount of time for regrowth.

You’ll want to make sure the hair is sufficient length for the best results.

  • Facial hair – lip, chin, eyebrows, etc. – should be about 2 weeks of growth from last wax.
  • Underarms – 8 to 10 days from last shave.
  • Legs – should be about 3 weeks of growth from last wax.
  • Brazilian & bikini – minimum 2 weeks from last shave. The hair needs to be around half an inch. If you must trim to achieve the desired length, always use scissors not clippers – even a clipper guard can make the hair too short!

Waxing is recommended every 4 weeks for every body part except for face and underarms – those areas need attention every 2 weeks. To ensure that you have your appointment locked in, book it right away. High demand means appointments may be harder to find than an unwanted hair on an In The Pink client!

Yes! In fact, you may need and want to wax even more when you’re pregnant. The further along you are, the more, um, challenging it can be to do a good job of grooming. Plus, there are some hygiene benefits to having things under control down there. For more info on this, check out our special section devoted to expecting moms.

Generally, you’ll start to see minor outgrowth at about two weeks. Fortunately, hair tends to weaken over a period of time from waxing, so you may notice it growing in much slower and finer. At about 4-5 weeks, the hair is at the point where you will want to schedule another waxing appointment to keep it under control.

Tinted Vibes ~ Brow & Lash Hues FAQs

Eyebrow tint usually lasts between three to six weeks. The color will gradually fade over time, with the effects starting to diminish within two to three weeks. The rate at which it fades can depend on your hair type, the type of beauty products you use, and how well you care for your brows.The color will gradually fade over time, with the effects starting to diminish within two to three weeks. The rate at which it fades can depend on your hair type, the type of beauty products you use, and how well you care for your brows.

Eyelash tints last for about four weeks. The dye is permanent, so the tint itself shouldn’t fade, but as your lashes fall out and new un-tinted lashes grow in their place, you’ll notice your eyelashes looking lighter and lighter.

Man Up ~ Waxing for Guys FAQs

Absolutely! Our men’s waxing services cover a range of areas, including but not limited to the back, chest, arms, and legs. We offer tailored waxing packages to address specific grooming preferences. Our skilled estheticians prioritize professionalism and ensure a comfortable experience, regardless of the chosen treatment area.& 

Unlike shaving, which cuts hair at the surface, waxing removes hair from the root. This results in smoother skin for a more extended period. Additionally, waxing typically leads to softer regrowth over time. Compared to hair removal creams, waxing provides longer-lasting results and avoids potential chemical reactions. Our experienced estheticians can discuss the benefits of waxing in detail during your consultation.

The duration of a waxing session varies depending on the area being treated. Generally, plan for about a 15 quick visit. Our skilled estheticians work efficiently to provide a thorough waxing experience without compromising on precision.
