Q: What is a Brazilian wax?
A: At Waxing B.A.Y., this service removes all hair in the bikini area including the hairs between your rear (interior only, not full buttock waxing). In other words, everything must go! If you are interested in this service, you will be asked to assume various positions in order to achieve complete hair removal. Please remember this is considered standard in the industry. A Brazilian may also include a "landing strip" of hair. The Brazilian line does not include full exterior buttocks waxing and our standard line for the thigh area is only two inches outward from the bikini line.
Q: Will my Brazilian Wax hurt?
A: After just one wax session your re-growth will be much thinner, finer and softer. That is one of the major benefits. With continued waxing, you may even experience significant reduction in re-growth. This makes it easier and less painful if you keep up with regular waxes. Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours before your wax. Take a mild anti-inflammatory medication (like Ibuprofen)1-hour prior to your appointment. Most women find waxing to be very tolerable.
Q: Is waxing sanitary?
A: Yes. Latex-free gloves are used during each service for your comfort, and there is a strict “No Double-Dipping” policy. Sterilized implements are used, and the treatment room is cleaned and sanitized after each guest.
Q: How long should my hair be prior to waxing?
A: It's Recommend not shaving or trimming desired area to be waxed for at least 3 weeks prior to service. The hair cannot be too long, but it can be too short.
Q: How long should I wait between waxing appointments?

Q: How long will my wax last?
A: If you maintain your waxing schedule of every 4-6 weeks max, you should be hair-free for at least 2-3 weeks, depending on your rate of hair growth. Most people see a significant reduction in hair growth by their 3rd waxing in a row without shaving or trimming in between services.
