How many of you ladies pluck or shave those unwanted hair? To tell you honestly, I used to do both, alternately, until I discovered the joy of waxing and threading.
I’ve always wanted to switch to waxing even earlier than 4 months ago. However, my reservations and apprehensions kept on stopping me. Until one time, out of the blue, I finally decided to visit the waxing salon near our place. I was a complete noob at that time. I don’t have a single idea of the process, of the nitty-gritty, but the coziness of the place and warmth of the people made me feel so at ease.
Yes, that is how it is at Lay Bare Waxing Salon. They almost rejected me when I first visited because the length of the UA hair is not the prescribed yet. That means it would be harder to remove it by waxing. Why you may ask. That is because their waxing process is different from those cosmetic based. The waxing process that I knew using cosmetics includes: application of a cream on the area, wait, and then remove the cream using a spatula. When you remove the cream, the hair are also removed. While at Lay Bare, an attendant uses an organic wax (they said it is made of sugar and something else) to remove the hair. Since not all the hair are removed through waxing (read: not all hair have the same length as they grow), they do supplemental plucking as needed.
They said in their FAQ that any form of hair removal may cause ingrown hair but now I think, using cosmetic wax is as prone as shaving as it does not remove the hair from the root. Correct me if I’m wrong. Also, I think that even if they do supplemental plucking, that’s still better than doing the plucking yourself as there is less chances of you plucking your skin than the hair.
So that is how they do it at Lay Bare. When I’m there for a session, I only stay for 15 minutes, 30 minutes max if I also available eyebrow threading. The process is really fast compared to a whole hour I spend on removing my UA hair by myself through plucking. I don’t also get a sore thumb and stiff neck because at Lay Bare, they have beds where you lay down for the process. The comfort does not end there are their fees are very reasonable.
Curious? Here is their current pricing.
