Some Soho Urban Wax of wis­dom:

Be clean
Bathe like you would if you were going to your OB/GYN. A warm shower helps open pores and makes hair removal easier.

Be dry
Clea­ni­ness is appre­ci­ated. But please skip the lotion, you will get bet­ter results if your skin is less oily.

For women clien­tele with bikini treat­ment
Be men­stru­a­tion free! Gen­er­ally, it is best to get a Brazil­ian at least a few days before or after your period. The closer you get to your period cycle, the more sen­si­tive your body becomes.

Be com­fort­able
Wear loose cloth­ing that day to pre­vent irri­ta­tion in the post — wax phase. For more ner­vous clien­tele, we rec­om­mend tak­ing ibupro­fen at least 20 minu­ites before your wax­ing ser­vice, as long as this does not con­tra­dict what your doc­tor has told you. Avoid caf­feine and alco­hol as these can stim­u­late, mak­ing you more sensitive.

Be relaxed
The more relaxed your mus­cles are the bet­ter your hair removal results will be!

Do go to a license & insured wax spe­cial­ist
Pick some­one based on refer­rals or estab­lish a rela­tion­ship with the tech­ni­cian first by try­ing a less inti­mate treat­ment and build your com­fort level. And the bot­tom line is… go with your instincts!

My best after­care advice:
Hold off on tak­ing hot baths for at least two hours.
Avoid ultra — vio­let rays from tan­ning beds and sun­bathing for at least 48 hours.
Resist make up (if face waxed)
Resist sauna and steam room for at least 48 hours.
Abstain from use of any prod­ucts con­tain­ing acid, i.e. alpha — hydroxy
