All About Underarm Waxing!

I absolutely love underarm waxing! A razor simply cannot compete. Biggest Plus – you don’t have to worry about razor burn. And bonus for people with dark hair – waxing gets rid of that shadow that’s always there no matter how often you shave. Since waxing removes the hair from the follicle, there’s no five o’clock shadow when you raise your arms. Such joy! It’s going to be a nice smooth skin tone the whole way down. And it’s liberating to lift your arms and not worry about stubble or if you missed a spot.

I always urge brides to grow that hair out and wax their underarms for the Big Day. Especially if you are wearing a strapless dress, but even light-colored dresses (like, you know, white) will amplify unkempt underarm hair or stubble. It can really help your confidence on your special day. Everyone is looking at you! And your photographer will love not having to touch up your underarms in pictures. Grow it out and come in and have it waxed, I promise you will love it.

The above advice also applies if you are planning a special vacation to somewhere sunny. Grow it, wax it, and leave that razor at home. (You can’t take it on the plane anyway.)

I always have clients say they feel like their underarm hair grows faster than any other hair, and they’re right! Underarm hair grows faster than any other hair on the body. In the summertime our regular underarm waxing clients come in as often as two or three weeks, in the winter they stretch it out their visits to every 3 or 4 weeks.

Are you ready to try out underarm waxing for the summer? Now is the perfect time to start! Your hair will need to be at least 1/4 inch long, which is usually a week to 10 days growth for most people. For your comfort, wear a tank top and we recommend wearing little or no deodorant the day of your appointment.

Grow those puppies out and give it a try! You’ll never go back to shaving.

We are so excited to see you!

We know everyone is eager to schedule an appointment, and we wholeheartedly thank you for being so understanding! We genuinely appreciate all of you for your love and support and patience as we move into this new phase.

We will reopen Monday June 1st, when we have our new COVID-19 safety protocols in place and our staff completes training. Your safety and the safety of our team are our number one priority.  

Starting on Monday, May 25th, we will contact clients who had appointments cancelled due to the shutdown. Once we have reached out to them, we will reopen our schedule to all clients and enable online booking.

Because of our new safety protocols, we will be able to see fewer clients per day. It is going to take us a little longer to catch up and get everyone back on a regular schedule. Please be nice and patient with us, we will see as many clients as possible.

We want to do this right and ensure we have all proper protocols in place. Please note the following changes will be strictly enforced. We will follow up for more information as we get closer to reopening.    
- NO extra guests. Only clients with appointments allowed.
- Our waiting area will be closed. You must wait in your car and let us know when you arrived. More detailed instructions to follow.
- YOU MUST WEAR A MASK - If you do not have a mask, we will have masks available for a nominal fee.
 - You must be symptom-free of any illness at least 72 hours before your appointment.
- For clients who require assistance, additional guests must be pre-approved before your appointment. We will not grant approval in person.    

We know this is quite a burden on everyone. But if this is the price we pay to make sure we can get back to work and take care of you, we have no problems with it.   We cannot WAIT to see you again!  

See you soon,
Your Waxing Goddesses at  Cherry City Waxworks
