What are the pros and cons of waxing?

There are so many benefits of waxing. Once making the change, many find it hard to quit! But if you’re undecided, here’s a list of pros and cons of waxing.


  • Your skin will stay hair free for longer

  • If you maintain regular waxing, your hair density will reduce (less hair will grow back!)

  • You hair will get finer and softer

  • Maintenance is fairly low, you only have to do it once a month to start with (you can leave more time between waxing the longer you’ve been having treatments. 

  • Your skin will be super smooth – I’m talking dolphin smooth!

  • You won’t be able to see dark hairs under the skin as when you shave (5 o’clock shadow)

  • You won’t get shaving rash

  • You won’t get harsh stubbly regrowth



  • One session of waxing costs more than one session of shaving (though arguably, waxing is cheaper in the long term).

  • It’s not easy to do yourself

  • It can be uncomfortable


    It’s my, (and many other women’s) opinion that the amazing benefits of waxing far outweigh the few negatives of waxing. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself! Book your appointment online.
