What to do in between bikini waxes
It’s common for clients new to waxing to ask what they should do in between waxing sessions so that they don’t have to come in every two weeks for a bikini wax. Not everybody’s growth cycle is the same and just because your friend gets a good 4 weeks of smooth skin, sans hair, doesn’t mean to say you will get that same cycle initially. We get that you might want to head to the beach, or want to feel more smooth for an upcoming vacation so therefore, the information and advice below is very general based on your hair type and growth cycles.
In a pinch, shave or use a depilatory cream. Yes, we said that!
If you’ve been waxing for a long time and your hair grows back slowly with a fine texture, go ahead and shave (in the same direction as the hair growth) or use a cream depilatory. Apply either of these methods just to the sides of your bikini line, or just below your belly button – save everything else for your waxer, it will be safer. If you have very coarse, stubbly hair from shaving, we would recommend shaving only as creams don’t seem to be as efficient on shorter, more coarse hairs.
If you only have a handful of random hairs that are bothering you go ahead and tweeze them out, carefully! Our Queen Bee Pro Tweezers are designed to remove the most stubborn
of hairs. Just make sure you check out instructions here on how to safely and efficiently use our tweezers so as not to break hairs or damage skin.
Let’s keep it brief
There are so many fabulous and fashionable options for beachwear and swimwear these days. Maybe opt for boxer briefs if you feel like you’d rather not shave.
There are some at home wax kits on the market, but you must know
what you’re getting into before you perform this service on yourself. Incorrect technique can result in skin bruising and broken hairs.
