Waxing – Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Hello Bella Gia Friends!  Let’s talk about waxing! We thought we would share our most frequently asked questions and answers.

1) Does brow waxing include shaping?

At Bella Gia Salon and Day Spa, our brow waxing always includes shaping. That is the fun and purpose of brow waxing      to shape and frame your face!


2) Does Brazilian waxing hurt?

Every client has their own “pain threshold” so this question can be more difficult to answer, however, generally speaking it is more uncomfortable than it is painful. For the truly sensitive client, we recommend taking 1-2 ibuprofen prior to the appointment. Waxing can also be more painful during the menstrual cycle, so it is best to plan around that when possible.


3)  How long does the hair need to be before I can wax?

We recommend that the hair be at least 1/4 of an inch long.  Ideally it will be at least 2 weeks since you last shaved; depending on how quickly your hair grows.


4) What areas are waxed during a Brazilian Wax?

Our Brazilian wax is front and back, you will leave completely clean.


5) Will I be completely naked, do I have to get into any weird positions?

You are welcome to bring a pair of disposable underwear, but your waxer will work best if you are naked. They will cover you with a small towel to ensure modesty. They may move your legs around and/or have you on your hands and knees for those hard to reach areas.  Most estheticians are extremely professional; they do this procedure many times a day and will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable! You will soon develop a relationship with your waxer, they are often your best ally :)!
