When's the best time to have a Hollywood Wax?
Ladies, I know how you like to be organised and plan your waxing around events such as holidays, or even weddings! I’m asked frequently: “I’m going on holiday on Saturday so when’s the best time to have a Hollywood wax?”
I would recommend, if it’s your first wax – book it for 3 days before you go on holiday if you can. This is because you want to have smooth, hairless skin whilst you’re away, but those 3 days will let your skin settle in case you have any redness.
However, if you’re a seasoned waxer, you should be fine to have your wax 24 hours before you’re going to have any sun exposure. So 1-2 days before your holiday might be more suitable.
Allowing 1-2 day after your wax should give your skin enough time to settle if there is any redness or sensitivity.
If it’s a special event such as your wedding. I always suggest creating a plan. You can work on this with your therapist if you have a variety of other treatments you’d like, including pedicures/ manicures/ facials etc. Ideally, you don’t want to have these treatments for the first time immediately before your wedding.
I’d recommend trying to get at least 2 waxes in before your final, pre-wedding wax. You usually want these waxes about a month apart, so here’s an example of when to start.
Wax: 12th April
Wax: 12th May
Final pre-wedding wax: 12th June
Wedding date: 14th June
