Your First Time and What You Can Expect
So you want to have a first time Brazilian wax, but wait…it’s kind of scary. Chances are you’ve done your research and have landed here at Aroma Waxing Clinic, Ontario’s premier waxing salon. It’s no joke when I say we do over 1,000 Brazilian waxes each month! Waxing is what we do, all day long, so we promise – you will be in great hands.
You may have a lot of questions and some expectations about this whole process so the point of this article is to put you at ease and to let you know what you can expect when getting a wax at Aroma Waxing Clinic.
Step 1 – You Arrive to the Salon
Upon arrival, you will be given a form and asked to fill it out. This form will alert your Waxologist of any conditions or special concerns you may have about waxing. We will want to know if you’ve waxed before, if you had any negative reactions to waxing, and most importantly, if you are on any medications that could cause your skin to react to the wax! We want this experience to be the best possible – and this client form is of the utmost importance.
Step 2 – Welcome to the Waxing Room
After this, your Waxologist will show you into the treatment room. The waxing table will be covered with fresh and laundered linens and an environmentally friendly and comfortable cover. We have a place for you to hang your clothes and put your shoes. A small drape, which will be used to preserve your modesty, is on the bed. For your privacy, your esthetician will leave the room momentarily while you change.
Step 3 – Ready, Set, Wax!
Once you are set, your Waxologist will come back into the room, sanitize her hands and put on gloves (for your safety!). The area to be waxed will be cleaned with an antiseptic wipe, and voila–you are ready for the first application of wax. The warm wax (not hot) is applied to the area, usually the section just below the belly button. A strip of muslin is placed over this wax and then, with your help in stretching the skin taut (it hurts less) the strip is removed, the wax is removed and VOILA, the hair is removed.
Step 4 – Reaction to the First Wax Strip
You will let out a big sigh of relief because:
- It didn’t hurt as much as you thought it would and
- You will be fascinated by the hairless smooth patch of skin you see and
- You didn’t pass out, scream, yell or hit your Waxologist like you thought you would!
So we move on.
Step 5 – See You on the Flip Side
We do much of the front area and then ask you to turn onto your side with knees in a comfortable position.
The back area takes a minute and by this time, we know the name of your boyfriend or girlfriend, what you got for Christmas, what you didn’t get that you wanted and just like that, we are finished.
Step 6 – Detailing
However, before we are completely finished and ready to leave the room…we will make sure your wax is perfect. We do adhere to a “no hair left behind” policy.
Step 7 – 15 Minutes Later: You’re Done
At this point in time, you are in awe that we finished your entire Brazilian wax and it took, what … 15 minutes or so? We’ve been chatting and talking the whole time and you’ve just made a new friend. Of course, we are thrilled that we have a new client and that you love your wax.
Your waxing session is over and we will leave you with a cool clean towel just in case you feel a “sticky” that we missed! We leave you to your privacy to get dressed. As you dress…you should be feeling a sense of elation.
Step 8 – Tell Your Friends
We know you want to shout out and holler to the whole world about your amazing Brazilian wax, so we have created a really fun Facebook page where you can join in on the wonderful world of waxing conversations (and humor).
We have contests, drawings and deals for our Facebook friends!
So, not only did you live to tell the tale to all of your friends (because of our great referral program, we give you $5 off your next service for each friend that books with us). But before you leave, we will have you re-booked with us next month for your second ever wax. In the back of your mind, you are kissing your razor goodbye (and good riddance) and are looking forward to one month of feeling smooth and hair-free.
