what kind of wax do you use?
The Southern Cottage uses both soft and hard wax. Hard wax is used on all sensitive areas which is by far, the most painless method of hair removal when it comes to waxing. Hard wax only adheres to the hair and not the skin.
will the hair grow back
When hair is shaved, it is bluntly cut at the thickest part of the hair which is why you can feel stubble the next day. Waxed hair is removed from the root, and when the hair starts to grow back , it is a very fine hair. The only thing that stimulates hair growth is hormones.
will it hurt?
Your first time waxing is the most painful. Why? Not only do you have the most hair during the first visit, the hair is also at its thickest after shaving for some time. We find that most of our first time clients are nervous at the beginning of their appointment, and by the end, booking their next visit! It really isn’t that painful.
how long does the
hair need to be?
All hair needs to be at least a quarter of an inch long (like a long grain of rice), which is at least 2-3 weeks of hair growth depending on your personal growth. If the hair isn’t long enough, you will experience re-growth much sooner. It normally takes 3 waxing appointments to experience even smoothness because of the different stages of hair growth.
