  • Why wax?
    There are many benefits to waxing! Let's dive in... DIMINISHED AND FINER REGROWTH • Waxing removes hair from the follicle which requires your body to grow a brand new hair. When your hair starts growing, it naturally does so with a thinly tapered end. This new hair feels much softer and you'll experience up to two weeks completely hair free before you notice regrowth. Over time, some hair may stop growing back altogether! NO MORE ITCHING OR RASH • When removing hair with a razor, it cuts the hair at the surface, leaving the hair with a sharp, angular edge. Continued shaving can further irritate the skin, making discomfort even worse. With waxing, the hair is removed at the follicle, new growth is tapered and softer, greatly reducing post-removal irritation! SAVES TIME • Average shave time takes about 10 minutes. If you are shaving even just 1-2 times per week, not only will you save time by waxing, but you'll save your energy and effort too. When you get waxed, the esthetician does all the work in a short amount of time. And since waxing generates new hair growth, rather than cutting existing hair at the surface, you'll see a longer period of time between hair removal sessions! When you choose to get waxed you are investing in you. By visiting a wax specialist once per month not only do you benefit from softer, smoother skin, but you also give yourself the opportunity to be looked after and cared for. Waxing is way to help you look and feel your best! It's time to throw out the razor and book your appointment!
  • How does waxing differ from shaving?
    Shaving cuts the hair bluntly at the surface of the skin. The hair is not removed, but continues to grow which is why you'll feel prickly soon after shaving. Waxing removes hair from the follicle, and your body is forced to grow a brand new hair. The new hair coming in will be softer and thinner.
  • This is my first Brazilian wax, what should I expect?
    Being nervous is totally normal! Brazilian waxing can seem intimidating, but we guarantee that every effort is made to make every service comforting, inclusive, and individualised. You'll be given time in the room alone before the service starts where you'll need to undress from the waist down. A towel is provided for you cover up when you're on the treatment table. Once I'm in the room, I'll inquire about your preferences, then I'll wash up, glove up, and request you get into 'butterfly' position. This position allows me to work more efficiently, but can be modified if necessary. Hair removal starts with the bikini line and moves inward. Leave as much or as little hair as you want; this service is for you and your body hair choices will be heard and respected! For the back side, you'll flip over and lay flat on your stomach. This is the easiest part of the whole process and before you know it, we're finished! Any discomfort you experience is minimal and quick. Going forward, you'll notice the process becomes easier and easier with each visit. Nearly every one of my first time Brazilian wax clients say "that's not as bad as I thought it would be!"
  • What does after care entail?
    Taking care of your skin and hair between appointments is extremely important. And it's also fairly simple! If you don't already exfoliate and moisturize the area, you will need to add that to your routine. Exfoliating is the process of removing the layer of dead skin off the surface of your skin. By doing so, the new hair growing in will have a clear path necessary so that it does not become ingrown. Haus of Wax carries all the essentials for your after care routine. After completing a skin analysis and doing a consultation, the appropriate products will be recommended for you. For 24 hours immediately following any body waxing: • No working out. • No sex! *Sweat contains bacteria so any activity causing sweat will likely result in irritation to the waxed area. • No pools, hot tubs or saunas. • No lotions, sprays, deodorant or other products on the skin. We gaurauntee the smoothest, most glowing skin of your life when following appropriate after-care!
  • What is a lash lift?
    Using your natural lashes, the lash lift mimics the effect of an eyelash curler. It makes your lashes bend upwards, leaving them looking longer, fuller, and leaving your eyes more open and bright. Adding a tint to the lashes gives the mascara effect. A lash lift typically lasts anywhere from 6-8 weeks.
  • Who is this procedure NOT good for?
    Chronic dry eye, conjunctivitis, damaged lashes or lashes with gaps (this treatment may make the gaps more noticeable), active eye infections of any kind, trichotillomania (habitual pulling out of lashes), recent chemo treatments (you will need to wait at least a year from your last treatment.) When in doubt, always consult with your physician. Although it is impossible to list every potential risk and complication, the following are recognized as contradictions to successful Elleebana Lash Lift and Tint treatments and must be disclosed prior to the treatment: • Pregnant or breastfeeding • Eye Infections/disorders • Recent Eye Surgery • Allergy to product • Very sensitive eyes • Hay fever sufferers/Watery Eyes • Conjunctivitis • Stye • Dry Eye Syndrome • Medication – Thyroxin (in some cases can prevent lashes from curling) • Contact Lenses – must be removed • Using prescribed medicated eye drops
  • How do I prepare for my lash lift?
    Please arrive without ANY product on your eyes! Stop using water proof mascara at least 2 days prior to your lift. If you wear contacts, it is recommended to remove them for the service. You can put them back in once we are done.
  • How is this different from lash extensions?
    Unlike lash extentions, there are no artificial lashes added. I will simply be using a lifting technique to bring out the full potential of your natural lashes. You'll immediately notice that your lashes will appear bigger and fuller, giving a bright-eyed enhanced look.
  • What's your cancellation policy?
    In the event that you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance. Cancellations that are within the 24 hour window will be charged a 50% fee of total services. No-shows will be charged 100% of all services reserved.
