Summer is right around the corner, I’m sure of it. So let’s get that pasty, fuzzy skin into shape for the summertime frolicking!  Forget the razor, waxing is the way to go and here are some great tips to ensure you have a great waxing service.

Do Numb It
There are many things you can do to increase the comfort of your service.  Take an ibuprofen or Tylenol 30 minutes before your appointment.  Ask your waxer if they have a desensitizing cream they can apply before the service.  You can also do this yourself to give it more time to absorb into the skin.

Do Seek Professional Help
Look for an experienced esthetician, preferably one who specializes in waxing – especially if you’re getting a Brazilian. Experienced waxers use the best wax for the job and have proper technique, ensuring that you feel and look great afterwards.

Do Exfoliate
Sloughing off dead skin helps prevent ingrown hairs. Use a loofah or sisal washcloth in the shower EVERY time! There are also some great products that you apply that will further help reduce and eliminate ingrown hairs. Be sure to ask your waxer if these products are right for you.

Don’t Wax at Home
It sounds like a great idea, but waxing yourself isn’t as easy as it sounds – especially if you’ve never been waxed before.  If you are an avid do-it-yourselfer, this is a project best left to professionals. Save yourself from pain, bruising and raw skin – seek help!

Don’t Spray Tan Before You Wax
This may sound funny, but we’re coming into summer and a lot of people want a little color BEFORE the warmer days finally make their way here.  If you must spray tan and wax, wax at least 24 hours BEFORE you spray tan.  This will ensure your tan is even – and sticks around a little longer.

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
