How long does hair need to be to receive a waxing service?
Your hair should be at least a 1/8″ to 1/4″ long in order for the was to adhere to the hair. If your hair is too long, we may trim it before wax is applied.Should I trim my hair before my appointment?
If your would like to trim, you may, but do not trim the hair to be less than 1/2″. The wax adheres better to hair hair between 1/4″ to 1/2″ long.  Hair that is shorter than 1/4″ long will not be removed with wax.

Can I bring a friend to my waxing appointment?
If you bring a guest to the spa with you, they are welcome to wait in our waiting area. Guests of the client will not be allowed to enter the waxing room during the service.

Do you have male clients?
Yes! We have many men that come in to remove body hair. Our chest and back waxing services are highly popular. Many men also wax their eyebrow and this service is tailored to the clients brows to maintain a masculine shape. Other popular service include waxing of the nostrils and the Ears. Sonya also offers Brazilian Waxing for Men.

Can my medication affect my waxing service?
Yes, it absolutely can. Sonya will have you fill out an evaluation before beginning your waxing service. It is important to tell her of any medications are currently taking that could affect your skin. There are certain medications and products that actually thin your skin. This can cause what we call “lifting” of your skin, which we want to avoid.

How long will my wax last?
It is difficult to say exactly how long your wax will last, because everyone’s hair grows at different rates. Most clients come in every 3-5 weeks to maintain their silky smooth skin. The longer you wax the finer and more sparse your hair will come in, which makes your future waxing services faster and less painful.

Can  I tan the same day as my waxing service?

It is not advised to tan within 24 hours of being waxed. Also, if you have recently received a spray tan, waxing can remove your spray tan causing discoloration.

What is the difference between a French Bikini Wax, a Brazilian Wax, and a Sphinx Wax?

Although different practitioners use these terms differently, for our purposes we define them as the following:
French bikini does an inch or two in from the bikini line and some off the top.
Brazilian takes everything off on the front and middle of your bikini area except for a strip left at the top of the pubic bone. Some clients prefer to remove all hair from from the area instead of leaving a strip.
Sphinx takes everything off front to back and in between.

Should I feel embarrassed to have a Brazilian or Sphinx wax done?
Absolutely NOT! Remember, Sonya performs these services everyday on multiple clients. You will be covered with a towel to maintain as much of your privacy as possible during the service. She will do her best to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your waxing appointment.

Can I have sex right after my bikini or brazilian wax?
No, you should wait 24 hours after your waxing service. Friction and Perspiration can aggravate your newly waxed skin. Your skin is also more susceptible to bacteria at this time.

Do your waxing services remove every single hair?
Although the technician does her best to remove all hair from the area you are having waxed, we do not guarantee that every hair will be removed. Different circumstance could prevent the hair from being removed during your initial wax such as length, density, or hair that is hidden in the folds of the skin. After your technician is done waxing you, please examine the area that was waxed and discuss any areas of concern before you leave the spa so that Sonya may address it at the time of service.
