Welcome to our comprehensive guide on what to expect during a waxing service. At The Beauty & Brow Parlour, we understand the importance of providing our clients with detailed information to ensure they feel comfortable and informed before their appointment. Whether you’re a waxing newbie or a seasoned pro, this guide will cover everything you need to know to make your waxing experience as smooth as possible.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Hygiene and Skincare

Preparing your skin correctly before your waxing appointment is essential. Ensure that the area to be waxed is clean and free from lotions, oils, or creams. Exfoliating the skin a day or two before your appointment can help remove dead skin cells and reduce the risk of ingrown hairs.

Hair Length

Avoid shaving for at least two to three weeks before your appointment to allow the hair to grow to the appropriate length for waxing.

What Happens During the Waxing Service?


Your waxing session will typically begin with a consultation with one of our experienced estheticians. During this time, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss any concerns or preferences. Our estheticians will also assess the condition of your skin and hair to determine the best waxing technique and products to use.

Prepping the Skin

Once you’re comfortable and ready to proceed, your esthetician will cleanse the area to be waxed to remove any remaining oils or residues. They may also apply a pre-waxing oil or powder to create a barrier between the wax and your skin, reducing the risk of irritation.

Wax Application

Next comes the wax application. Our estheticians use only the highest-quality wax, specifically for sensitive skin. The wax is applied thinly and evenly to the area, following the direction of hair growth.

Hair Removal

Once the wax has cooled and adhered to the hair, your esthetician will swiftly remove it in the opposite direction of hair growth. This technique helps to ensure a clean and efficient hair removal process, minimising discomfort and reducing the risk of breakage.


After the waxing, your esthetician will apply a soothing lotion or gel to calm the skin and minimise redness or irritation. They may also provide aftercare instructions at home, such as avoiding hot baths or showers and wearing loose-fitting clothing to allow the skin to breathe.

Potential Side Effects

While waxing is generally a safe and effective hair removal, some individuals may experience temporary side effects. These may include:

Redness: It’s normal for the skin to appear slightly red or irritated immediately after waxing. This should subside within a few hours.

Sensitivity: You may experience increased sensitivity in the waxed area for a day or two following your appointment.

Ingrown Hairs: Sometimes, hair may become trapped beneath the skin’s surface, leading to ingrown hairs. Regular exfoliation can help prevent this.


In conclusion, knowing what to expect during a waxing service can help alleviate any anxiety or uncertainty. By following the tips outlined in this guide and choosing a reputable parlour like The Beauty & Brow Parlour, you can ensure a smooth and comfortable waxing experience every time.
