How long does my hair have to be to get waxed?
We require that you have at least a 2-3 weeks of hair growth; this allows the wax to grab the hairs easily.
How often should I get waxed?
The general rule is every 4 weeks, or when your hair is between ¼- ½ inch long.
Will my wax stick be double-dipped?
Double dipping a waxing stick is disgusting and unsanitary! You will NEVER see that occur at WAXUALITY. To guarantee a safe and sanitary waxing experience, each stick is dipped into the wax one time and then disposed of immediately after use.
Will my waxthetician wear gloves?
Absolutely, Yes! Always. Although wax is naturally antibacterial, gloves are ALWAYS used. This ensures protection for both you and your waxthetician.
Will I be as smooth as a baby’s bottom after my first wax?
Possibly. Some clients are smooth as a baby’s bottom after their first experience. On the other hand, a few clients have been known to feel a wee bit of stubble after the first couple of waxes. This occurs most frequently with clients that have coarse, dark hair. It is most common with leg waxing. The reason for the stubble is that your hair grows on 3 different cycles, each lasting about 28 days. It takes a few services for your hairs to all grow out long enough to be grabbed entirely by the wax. When it does, it’s smooth sailing from there.
What should I do between waxes?
Moisturize and exfoliate! If you are prone to ingrown hairs, moisturize and exfoliate even more. If you get an ingrown hair that is close to the surface, try to get the hair to come through the skin by soaking it with a hot towel. Then, pluck the hair. We also offer vulvacials to help exfoliate and avoid ingrown hairs.
Are there any reasons that I shouldn't get a waxing service?
To make sure that your skin stays healthy, you should avoid waxing if you have recently been exposed to the sun (naturally or in the tanning salon), will be exposed to the sun in the near future (24–36 hours), have just exercised (including swimming), or if you are using any medication internally or topically that increases the skin’s sensitivity. Avoid waxing if you are using: Accutane, Retin-A, Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid, Resorcinol, Glycolic Acid or any other kind of chemical-based peels.
Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker?
No way! This is a myth. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become finer over time.
Does WAXUALITY offer test patches?
ABSOLUTELY! Every client is unique therefore, if you desire, we will perform a complimentary test patch so that you can see how your skin responds to the wax within a 24-hour period.
Can I get waxed while I'm on my period?
You certainly can. Go ahead and schedule your waxing session, as long as you are wearing a tampon!! We will work around it. However, in order to avoid any extra discomfort the best time to wax is mid-cycle—right around the time that ovulation occurs.

How do I make an appointment?
You can make your appointment online by clicking the appointments tab. You must login as a "new user" (we just need to make sure that you're human). You can also call us!
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes! We accept Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, and Discover.
I'm running late. Can I still get my service done?
If you are running late, call to let us know! If we still have time to see you, we will let you know. However, if you show up late without calling, you may possibly be turned away! All of our appointments are timed. When you are late it causes EVERYONE behind you to be late as well! That is unacceptable!!
