New to waxing? here’s what to expect…

So, you’ve bit the bullet and made the decision to change your downstairs from a hairy fairy into
a tamed and fabulous lady garden. AND you’ve made the incredibly smart choice of choosing
Madame Wax to take your waxing virginity, Well lucky you! 😁 You’ve made the best decision you could have made this year! Unlike other beauty salons, we specialise in waxing – nothing else.

It’s one of the reasons why we have got a reputation for offering “the best bikini wax in
Cardiff”.
Our specialist skills and years of experience mean your wax will be as quick and pain-free as we can possibly make it.

So, what can you expect from your first ever wax?

Well, we can imagine you’re going to be feeling a tad nervous, but not to worry because you will feel at ease the moment you walk through the door as we are super friendly.

Our treatment times can range from 15 to 45 minutes (depending on how brave you’ve been
while booking). Your therapist will usually ask you to remove your clothes from the waist down
and during your wax we will ask you to move into certain positions, this helps with eliminating
any discomfort.

If you are are having a Brazilian/Hollywood you’ll receive a FREE exfoliating glove and cream sample (1st time bikini waxers) to help with the redness over the next day or two. The cream also helps to soothe the skin which will more than likely also feel a bit tender. But don’t worry this will only last a couple of days and we will give you all the aftercare advice you could ever need.

We will also give you a quick courtesy call a few days later to ensure everything is fine and you’re 100% happy. Finally, about a week after your wax you will receive a 2-question survey so you can give us any feedback.

Here at Madame Wax we try our hardest to manage your expectations. We are the wax experts
of South Wales and people travel miles to visit us, but unfortunately, we aren’t miracle workers.
Even though we will wax you to the best of our ability, it will take a few waxes before we can get
you as smooth as a baby’s bottom. This is due to the fact you have probably spent some
time shaving or using hair removal creams. But rest assured, with each wax the hair grows back
finer and finer and the results will get better and better!

Here are some top tips:

  • Make sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment.
  • Think the hair is ‘too long’? stop! don’t touch it! Nothing is too long for us to tackle so leave us to trim it.
  • On your period? No problem, we wax plenty of women on their ‘time of the month’. we have
    wipes and tampons for you to use in our bathroom beforehand. But remember that increase skin
    sensitivity is normal during your period, but paracetamol will help.
  • Hair needs to be AT LEAST 1cm long (4-6 weeks of growth) to make sure you receive the best
    wax results.
  • Do not use lotions or creams before your wax appointment.

For best long-term results, we recommend waxing regularly every 4-6 weeks
Unfortunately, if you are in your first trimester of pregnancy (first 12 weeks) sadly we cannot
wax you due to insurance reasons 🙄. Also, if you are using or have used a course of Roaccutane or Accutane you will have to wait 6 months from finishing the course before you start waxing.
