We use a totally disposable waxing system that prevents cross contamination between you and any other client. We use strip wax for legs and some facial waxing. Disposable hot wax is used for Bikini line, G-string, Brazilian and underarm as these areas are more sensitive.


Waxing will leave you relatively free of hair growth for 3-4 weeks. This may not happen on your first wax due to the natural hair growth cycle, so we recommend a treatment plan of waxing the area every 4-6 weeks to work in with your hair growth cycle.


The majority of hairs need to be at least half a centimetre long when coming in for your waxing treatment.


We have packages available for a combination of waxing treatments.
