Salem 503.704.6317 By Appointment Only

As we head into our busy season, we start seeing more skin issues.  Many of our clients suddenly develop ingrown hairs and other sensitivities.  We call it ingrown hair season around here.  Why?  There are several reasons.

Exercising after a waxing appointment. People start working out more to get in shape for bikini season.  Summer is fast approaching and everyone wants to look good nearly-naked.  But getting waxed before a workout leads to problems.  After waxing, the hair follicle takes some time to shrink and close up.  Sweat from heavy exercise can block follicles.  When the hair starts to regrow, it’s can’t break through to the surface and becomes ingrown.   TIP: Do not work out for 24-48 hours after your waxing appointment.

Wearing tight clothes.  Leggins, jeggings and tights hug your skin and can restrict air and minor blood flow.  Wearing tight clothes after your waxing appointment keeps the skin from breathing.    If you must wear tight clothes, don’t wear them the day you get waxed.

The crazy spring weather.  It’s Oregon and our springtime weather is insane!  We can see hail and rain and 45 degrees, and then sun and 70 degrees – all in one afternoon! This time of year it gets hot and dry, then cold and wet, and our skin has a hard time adjusting the all those fluctuations. Warm and moist, cold and dry – I’ll be your face freaks out too.

•  Our lobby is closed until social distancing guidelines relax, so we ask that you arrive at the salon shortly before your appointment time and text us at 971-301-4854. Please wait outside or in your car until we text you that your waxer is ready to see you.

 

• If you have had a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or have been in contact with anyone with these symptoms or anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 3 days, we will need to reschedule. State guidelines require that we must wait to reschedule until any or all of the following requirements: 1) At least 72 hours after symptoms have resolved without any medication 2) At least 14 days after being in contact with someone with these symptoms and/or 3) At least 14 days after being in contact with a person with COVID-19.

While we always operate at the highest cleanliness standards, we are taking all necessary measures to maintain a safe and clean environment.

• We require each guest to wear a mask while in the salon. If you are receiving facial waxing, you can remove the mask just during that service and put it back on during any other non-facial waxing services. If you forget your mask or do not have one, we have masks available.

• Unless previously arranged, only clients with appointments will be allowed in the salon and only for their appointment time.
