The hair should be at least 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch (around 5 mm ) for best results. If you have coarse hair it should be closer to 1/2-inch for the first few waxes. Once the hair becomes finer it can be waxed at a shorter length. If you shaved you should wait 2-3 week to get the optimal length

No. If the hair is much longer then 1/2 inch we will trim it quickly before the treatment. Better let it be assessed by the professionals as you might trim it too short or it might not be as long as you think.

The moment when you apply the warm wax on the skin feels actually very nice, however waxing will never be as relaxing as a massage. Having said that most people find it is nowhere near as bad as they thought it would be and most of the stress is caused more about the anticipation then about the actual treatment. If you never been waxed before you will get used to the feeling very quickly and start to relax after a few minutes.

Not rushing to your appointment and choosing a day when you feel relaxed and not tired will contribute to a much nicer experience.

Absolutely not.Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as coarse.When hair is shaved, it is cut off at the thick part of the hair, which is why you can feel stubble the next day. A properly waxed hair is removed from the root, and when the hair starts to grow back it is a new hair, very fine at the tip, so no stubble.The only things known to stimulate hair growth are hormones: natural or artificial.

A Brazilian wax is the removal of all of the pubic hair, front and back, using peelable wax(hot wax) . Some people opt to have a small shape left in the hair. This shape may be a small strip of hair or something more fun like a heart.
