Underarm Waxing

It's waxing time at the salon. Lots of people are flocking in for a variety of waxings before the leave for their summer vacations. Lips and brows, half legs, full legs, bikini waxing (of course!) and underarms. In fact, I'm doing more underarm waxing than I ever have before. I don't know if it's the new in thing to do or if it's just that people have started to realize how great it is!

It's great because the skin is soft and smooth with no rough stubble. The skin stays hair free for about 2 weeks. There is no shadow of dark hair beneath the skin because the hair is pulled out from the root. Plus, there are no shaving injuries, you know, those nasty razor burns, scrapes and nicks.

I have clients who have been waxing their underarms for years. They love it. Their hair has become finer and more sparse. This is a benefit of long term waxing. Does it hurt? That's a question I hear  lot! Hair is being pulled out from the root. It's going to hurt a bit, but the more you wax, the less it hurts due to that fabulous benefit of the hair becoming finer and more sparse.

I do my best to make the waxing experience a pleasant as possible. I use waxing techniques to do an almost painless underarm wax. I put together a little video to show you how I do it.

An underarm waxing takes about 20 minutes to do when you first start waxing. It gets much quicker as the hair get thinner. You will see how fast it goes in the video. There is one downside to waxing, you have to let the hair grow to about 1/4 inch long to get a good waxing. 

It's tough to let hair grow in from shaving. The hair must be long enough to become embedded in the wax and be pulled out. For people with fast growing hair, it could be just one week. For others, it could be 2 weeks of growing time. It gets easier. The hair grows in finer and less noticeable once it has been waxed a few times.

It's worth a try. Be sure to go to a salon or spa that does a lot of body waxing and has experienced technicians. You want to go to someone who knows what they're doing! 

Come see me if you live near Media, Pa. I am at Styling Point. Have no fear! I've been waxing for more than 30 years.  I've done underarm waxing on young teens, women and even men. I'll help you get rid of that unwanted hair.
