How do I prepare for my sugaring appointment?
-Exfoliate your skin 48 prior to appointment
-Make sure you are not sunburned and have not been in a tanning bed
-Wear loose fitting clothing to your appointment so your skin can breathe post sugaring
-Come well hydrated
Aftercare! How do I take care of my skin after my sugaring appointment?
- Avoid sweating, pools, saunas & sex for 48 hours
- Start exfoliating 48 hours after your appointment and do this 3- 4 times a week
-Keep your skin moisturized after every shower
- Salt speeds up healing / if you notice your skin is a little red or irritated, take a salt bath or use a salt compress
-Stay well hydrated
What if I am on my period at the scheduled time of my Brazilian or bikini sugaring appointment?
This is entirely up to you. I am very familiar and have sugared women on their cycle many, many times. Women can tend to be a tad more sensitive when on their cycle.
If you would prefer to reschedule because of of this, that is not a problem.
Rooted Beauty cannot guarantee you will get in within your desired time frame if rescheduling.
If you choose to come to your appointment and ARE on your cycle, please use a tampon for the duration of your appointment time.
I have never had a Brazilian, does it hurt?
We are removing the hair from the bulb / follicle, so there is sensation. This will vary for everyone. After your first appointment the sensation is lessened tremendously. I promise :)
I have a big event (wedding, vacation, bachelorette party, pool day) that I am preparing for. When should I come in to get my Brazilian?
For ideal results, book your appointment at least two days before your event.
How often should I come in to see a difference in my hair, from sugaring?
You want to be consistent with your appointments! Every 4 - 6 weeks, depending on how long you have been getting sugared, how much hair you have, how thick it is and how deeply rooted it is the answer will vary. I will discuss all of this with you at your appointment.
I am pregnant but want to get a Brazilian. Is this safe?
Absolutely. Sugaring is safe for clients who are pregnant and throughout the entire pregnancy. Please inform Nola at the time of your appointment so she knows exactly what products to use and what to avoid. (sugar paste is made up of just water, sugar and citric acid)
I want to get a Brazilian for the first time ever, but I have shaved my entire life. How long does my hair need to be?
Two weeks minimum since the last time you shaved is best. This guarantees we can grab all the hair from the bulb.
Is sugaring better for the earth?
YES! Sugar paste is biodegradable and can be naturally broken down by the earth.
How long will my appointment take? Depends entirely on what service you are receiving. My facials are either 75 or 90 minutes. Sugaring appointment length will vary, depending on what area we are removing the hair from.
