Everything YOU Need To Know About Facial Waxing

Facial waxing otherwise known as face waxing is a popular choice for millions of women across the UK. Facial waxing is a great alternative to both shaving and threading, especially as most women find facial threading extremely painful.

What is a Facial Waxing?

Facial waxing is a quick and easy way to remove unwanted hair from your face. Women normally book facial waxing appointments to remove hair from the following areas of their face:

  • Moustache Wax – to remove hair from the upper and lower lip area of your faces
  • Chin Wax – to remove the hair from the chin & throat area
  • Side Burn Wax – to remove excess hair from your side burns and the back of your neck
  • Eyebrow Wax – To redefine the shape of your eyebrows & remove any excess hair

Most women prefer to use facial waxing rather than facial threading as it is much quicker and ten times less painful than facial threading.

Getting a Facial Wax? Here is How to Prepare!

There a few things you can do to prepare for your next facial waxing appointment to make your waxing treatment quicker & just a little less painful.

Make Sure You Have Enough Hair to Wax

Make sure that you do not wax or shave your chosen facial area for up to 2 weeks before your facial waxing appointment.

This is as you will need at least a quarter of an inch (0.5cm) of hair on your face for your waxing therapist to give you the perfect facial wax.

Shorter hair makes it harder for your therapist to remove as the wax will find it virtually impossible to stick to your hair follicles.

Time Your Facial Waxing Appointment Perfectly

We really recommend that you avoid booking your facial waxing appointment during the week leading up to your period. This is as the skin on your face may feel more sensitive than usual and your facial wax may feel more painful.
