Kind Of Wax:
Here at Pink Cherry we use a high quality, cream wax for all of our services (except nostrils). We choose our wax because it allows us to work more efficiently and because it is high in Titanium Dioxide (what they add to natural sunscreen and cosmetics). TD provides a barrier on the skin that protects it during waxing. We treat the skin before and after waxing for added protection and we spend a little more money on our products because we believe in quality.
Brazilain Wax Is:
A Brazilian Wax is the complete removal of pubic hair from front to back, with the exception of leaving a small strip upon request
Bikini Wax Is:
A Bikini wax is the removal of pubic hair along the natural "Bikini line." It typically includes the thigh areas and a few inches off the top of the pubic area.
Brow Design Is:
Brow design is the art of reshaping brows that have been badly treated. Taking into consideration the condition of your brows and the shape of your face, we can help reverse the damage of brows that are uneven, over tweezed or that have been poorly shaped.
Brow Tinting Is:
This service is the professional application of specialized colorants to shade the brows darker. Final color can be very pronounced or subtle depending on your desired result. Tinting is especially affective on blonde, light brown and gray brows and can last up to 5 weeks. It is also specially designed to fade slowly to avoid "grow out" lines.
Nose & Ears:
This service is VERY popular and you will love the results. For these areas we use a very special strip-less wax that has a pleasant floral aroma. Waxing is done very quickly (about 10 minutes) and is surprisingly comfortable. The regrowth in this area is slowed greatly by waxing so we recommend it is done every 8 - 10 weeks.
We wax Men almost as frequently as we wax Women and we think it is great that you want to keep things "neat." In fact we are one of the fastest options out there to remove unwanted chest and back hair (around 15 minutes an area). Although, we offer a wide range of services for men we currently do not offer a full male Brazilian but we do offer a nice alternative clean-up.
A Male Bikini is comparable to a female Bikini, removing pubic hair from the upper inner thigh, slightly inward and on top of the pubic region. This procedure can also include the backside region, the lower stomach and bum cheeks but those areas can be added as an additional service.
How Long it takes:
Brazilian and Bikini waxes are finished within 15 minutes, Brows in about 10 minutes. Other services are done very quickly and efficiently also, without sacrificing attention to detail!
How Long It Lasts:
Initial Wax results vary, especially if you're coming to us from shaving because the hair cycles have been disrupted by the shaving. Typically first time waxing guest can expect to see 2+ weeks with minimal to no return growth. Once you have established a more consistent wax schedule the hair cycles will begin to synchronize resulting in a smoother and longer lasting result, this means up to 4 weeks hair-free.
Despite what you may have heard, hair length is not what we look for. The most important factor is the amount of time since last epilation (shaving or waxing). We recommend 4 weeks of growth with no trimming in between. This will allow for all independent hair cycles to fully surface and will result in a much smoother result.
Ingrown hairs plague us all for a variety of reasons, too many to mention here, but the best strategy is a good defense. Proper exfoliation is key! First make sure you are using an external exfoliator daily, we advise a natural bristol body brush. Use it daily in little circular movements across the entire waxed area using warm water and a mild body wash. We also highly recommend PFB Vanish, it's unique blend of acids will chase the excess oil in the skin and keep the pores clean from the inside. Finally, don't apply heavy oils, powders or creams to this area for at least a week after your initial wax, you don't want these items clogging up your freshly opened pores. PFB Vanish is only sold in Store.
Yes, waxing during pregnancy is perfectly safe from week 1 to 40, unless you have been advised differently by your Doc. We have a Maternity Brazilian wax just for you! This technique is has been specially developed to keep Mommy as comfy as possible. Call us for details or see our Maternity Wax on the Menu page. Keep in mind however that different rules will apply for ingrown prevention and you should consult your physician before taking any over the counter meds before waxing.
Let's be honest here... we are removing hair by pulling it from the follicle. Anyone who tells you that it is pain-free is pulling a fast one. (Pun intended) With that said, we are highly skilled waxing professionals and skill is everything with this type of service. Although some degree of discomfort is to be expected, with our expertise it is greatly minimized and 99% of our clients report that it was not nearly as uncomfortable as they had anticipated.
#1: Make sure you have the recommended 4 weeks of growth... this will ensure you the best results possible
#2: Take two Ibuprofen an hour before your visit, this will help minimize any possible inflammation.
#3: Avoid Caffeine, Nicotine and Stress before your visit. These substances and situations tend to make you more sensitive.
#4: The best time to wax is the week after your menstrual cycle, this is when you are least sensitive from hormones.
Let's put it this way if you are apprehensive... We are very professional, we take our jobs very seriously and literally have done thousands of waxes. There is absolutely no situation we haven't encountered and we promise to put you at ease whatever your particular concern. So please do not run the other way if you see us on the street.
