Waxing, Threading & Tinting Treatments
Threading is an incredibly popular form of hair removal. It is also a wonderful method for eyebrow shaping. Threading if becoming more preferred method of eyebrow shaping.
It involves cotton thread being doubled, twisted and rolled across unwanted hairs to swiftly remove them at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, threading can remove short lines of hair ensuring precision and control. And, as no heat or chemicals are applied it’s considered a far gentler treatment. This can be done on all skin types including sensitive skin.
We use Strip wax for the waxing treatments carried out in the salon, this is applied thinly to the skin, then removed using paper strips. For fave and body waxing.
Eyelash tinting can help to emphasis your eyes and gives you the appearance of having mascara on 24/7. I will choose what colour would suit you best. Most popular is blue/black or black. Gets the Lashes as dark as possible.
This treatment is perfect for those with naturally fair eyebrows or people who are looking for the bold brow. Eyebrow tinting can help to enhance the natural contours of your face. Tinted eyebrows can last up to 6 weeks and our therapists will chose a shade that will suit you.

- Do not take a hot bath or shower for 24 hours after treatment as this will cause discomfort and irritation.
- Do not apply soaps, deodorants, anti-perspirants, talcum powder, perfumes, make-up or self tanning products to the waxed area for at least 24 hours after treatment.
- Do not expose newly waxed skin to direct sunlight (or sunbeds) for at least 24 hours.
- Do not wear tights or stockings or very tight fitting clothing that will touch the freshly waxed skin for at least 24 hours
- Do exfoliate regularly after a wax. One of the hazards of waxing is ingrown hair, which can be difficult to prevent due to the random direction of hair growth. Regular exfoliation will help and applying a tea-tree based cream can help reduce redness and inflammation from ingrowing hairs
- Patch test required 24/48 hours prior to any tinting treatment if you haven’t had one carried out within the salon previously.
- For best results hair needs to be minimum 1/4″ in length to ensure complete removal.
- Do not bath or shower immediately before waxing as this can cause skin irritation.
- Please note that waxing over a self tan will cause the tan to lift. This can also happen with natural tans as the wax will lift the dead skin cells.
- Waxing is also not advised immediately after heat treatments such as a sauna, steam or sun beds.
- DO NOT WAX if you have any of the following conditions: heart problems, varicose veins, poor circulation, diabetes, epilepsy, phlebitis or any skin conditions including sunburnt skin, cuts, swollen bruised areas, warts, moles, edema or recent scar tissue (3 months), undiagnosed bumps or hypersensitive skin. Waxing is also not advised if you are pregnant.
- Please inform your therapist if you are using any of the following prescription drugs, as waxing is not recommended due to the possible side effects: Accutane, Retin-A, Alpha Hydroxy and/or Glycolic based drugs.
- Try not to book in for your waxing treatment just prior to or during menstruation as this is when your body is at its most sensitive and the ‘ouch’ factor will be at its greatest!
- If you are considering waxing private areas for the first time, please do not be embarrassed, therapist’s trained in ‘extreme’ waxing have seen it all before and will do their best to put you at ease. If it is your first wax, or you have not been waxed in this area recently, please be prepared or be prepared to have your therapist trim your hairs to about 2cms or less (but leaving enough for the wax to hold onto). Ripping out long hairs is guaranteed to give maximum pain.
- Try to relax during treatment – yes, easier said than done! But the more relaxed you are, the easier it will be for your therapist to pull out the hairs, and the less pain it will cause.
Gently exfoliate and moisturise the day before your treatment.
This will prepare your skin and remove dead skin cells, making your wax more comfortable.
Don’t use a sunbed/solarium for a couple of days prior to your appointment as this will sensitise the area.
Q: How long will my wax last?
Everyone is different, but you should get two good hair free weeks, then it will start to grow back.
Now is a good time to gently exfoliate to help the hair break through the skin.
Some people find the waxed area can be a little itchy for a couple of days around the two week stage, that’s normal.
Most people return to the salon every four or five weeks.
Q: I’ve been shaving/using hair removal cream
Let the hair grow to a minimum of half a centimetre long. The longer you can leave it the better.
Often, it can take more than one wax to get a smooth result, this is because some previously shaved hair will be in a resting phase and be too short to wax. It will look smooth, but feel a little stubbly until all the hair has grown out and been waxed.
Q: I’ve heard that waxing can be quite painful. Is there anything I can do?
Using hot/hard wax is much less painful than strip wax.
If you are concerned, you can take a paracetamol half an hour before your appointment.
If you are tired, run down, due your period or are hungover you might
