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.

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
