To Wax Or Not To Wax? That is the question…
When deciding whether to wax or not for your big day we hear all kinds of brides saying different things so we thought we would share some tips with you.
Each part of your body that is getting waxed needs special attention and should never be done the day of or even the day before your big day!
Eyebrow/Face Waxing– you want to make sure this is done at a minimum a week before your big day and longer if you have never waxed before! With increased stress surrounding your wedding, your skin can over react and cause more redness than normal. The last thing you want is red brows or swollen upper lip in your photos!
Leg/Arm Waxing– ideally you would want to start at a minimum 3-4 months before your big day with once a month waxing. This ensures your body is prepared and used to the waxing and your hair growth cycles are on on track and your waxing should last through your big day and into your honeymoon right after! Try and schedule it so your waxing lands the week before your wedding date!
Now the big debate- Bikini or Brazilian! This is entirely personal preference and when it comes to your big day it should be your decision not your grooms or bridesmaids! Like Leg waxing you want to start this waxing well in advance of your wedding day so you know how that skin reacts to the waxing. We strongly recommend that you give your body 1-2 weeks before your wedding date when it comes to this type of waxing if it is not consistent. The last thing you want is to be unable to walk down the aisle! 😉
Male waxing– Why not convince your guy to get his brows done before your big day! Don’t worry he won’t end up with pretty girlie brows but we can help those caterpillar brows and unibrows 😉 Plus most men get addicted to it when they realize just how much longer it lasts than shaving the middle! While your at it, convince him to get the Business Meeting Manicure as well, trust me you will thank us for this too 😉
Whether your waxing, shaving or trying something new for your skin, please remember to do it in enough time to gauge your reaction. You want to enjoy your big day and not worry about any itching or redness. One idea is to test this by organizing a bachelorette spa package at The Urban Spa Peterborough.
