01

Reasons You'll Love Facial Waxing

Because smooth is better

When the hair is removed at the root instead of cut from the surface, it grows back in smoothly, meaning you'll be stubble-free. Smoother skin also makes for a more flawless makeup application.

Because it won't break the bank

It's affordable! Since the face is such a small surface area, less wax is needed, so it's less expensive than waxing larger parts of the body.

Because you’ll grow less hair

Think of it as training your hair. The more you wax, the less it grows over time. How great is that?

Long lasting results

You'll get about 2-3 weeks' worth of results from a facial wax—a lot longer than other removal methods.

Types

purple chin waxing icon

Chin

Generally, chin hair is thicker and has stronger roots, which makes waxing a smart choice. While there are other methods for removing chin hair, waxing is especially beneficial here.

Ear

As you might imagine, ears can be difficult to wax on your own! If you find yourself in need of ear hair removal, professional facial waxing is (in our humble opinion) one of your very best options.

Lip

The more you wax, the less painful it becomes. That hard-to-reach hair around the mouth is no match for our Wax Specialists.

Sideburns & Hairline

Both women and men have sideburns, but having dark or thick sideburns might make you feel self-conscious. Ditto for having an uneven hairline. Waxing your sideburns and hairline will gives you that perfect, clean line.

Cheek

Because cheek hair is fine and light, it can be difficult to remove. Facial waxing can help get every last pesky bit of facial fuzz. In fact, the more often you wax these areas, the finer that hair will come in time after time.

Neck

These unwanted stragglers on the front, sides, and back of your neck are easily taken care of with facial waxing.

purple nose waxing icon

Nose

Ah, nose hairs. They serve a purpose but are a no-go when they get long and unruly. Our Wax Specialist will focus on waxing the outer edge of your nostrils (similarly to how you'd use hair trimmers). Because the nose is so sensitive, it’s important to let a Specialist wax this area .

Eyebrows

It's all about the eyebrows! Our Wax Specialists are pros at helping to shape the perfect brow for both men and women. Check out our full page on all things eyebrow waxing  to learn more.

What to Expect

A reservation with one of our Wax Specialists will help you determine exactly where you should remove any pesky little hairs from your face. 

If it’s your first facial waxing, it's important to know what to expect prior to your reservation. 

Hair is totally normal

Don’t be embarrassed. Everyone has unwanted hair or peach fuzz on their face, but if you don't like it, we can help! Our goal is for you to walk out feeling confident in your own skin.

A slight ouch

Although a little discomfort is completely normal during your first time facial waxing, it'll hurt less and less each time you visit.

A little redness

Just like any area that you wax, the surrounding skin may be a little red after your service. If you've got a big event, plan your wax about three days before (just to be safe!)

Some sensitivity

Because the skin on your face can be more delicate than other areas, you may notice some slight sensitivity after your service. If you feel extremely sensitive after a face wax, consult one of our Wax Specialists.

Facial Wax Aftercare

You'll love how smooth and flawless your new, fuzz-free face will feel when you leave one of our centers. 

We want you to continue to love the results for every day in between reservations, so here are some tips on how to maintain your wax results.

To Keep in Mind:

  • Avoid harsh sunlight, sunbathing and tanning beds

  • If you must go in the sun, wear sunscreen

  • Avoid topical face treatments

  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated water

  • Avoid profuse sweating

  • Avoid touching the area


How long will your face or brow wax last?


Typically, your wax will last 2-3 weeks before you begin to see any regrowth, but as you wax your face more regularly, the density and amount of hair will decrease. 

Ongoing Tips

Be Consistent

Don’t flip-flop between hair removal methods. Once you start waxing for hair removal, stick with only waxing and be consistent about coming in for your services. This will help to ensure that your face stays perfectly smooth.

Keep it Clean

Wash your skin every morning and every night and never go to bed with makeup on. This helps keep your skin healthy and makes regular waxing easier.

Exfoliate

Use an exfoliator to keep skin smooth in between your facial waxing services. TheReveal Me Face Exfoliating Gelis a lightweight, gentle, non-abrasive exfoliator designed to eliminate dry, dull surface cells, support natural cell turnover, and is sure to keep your face flawless.

Hydrate

Apply a good hydrating serum to avoid dry skin between waxes. Our Renew Me Restoring Serum is amazing because it restores stressed skin while calming irritation and redness. It also defends against free radicals and other skin aging factors, which your skin can be even more susceptible to after waxing. 


This soft, silky, lightweight serum absorbs instantly into the skin for concentrated, fast-acting results. We recommend using this product every morning and evening followed by a moisturizer.

Perfect It

Take advantage of our Strut Boldly Brow Collection to groom, highlight, and perfect your brows between eyebrow waxing services.  We suggest using our Reveal Me Face Exfoliating Gelthree times per week after waxing, but it’s gentle enough for daily use. 


You'll want to avoid exfoliating 24-48 hours prior to waxing services. We recommend applying a thin layer to clean, dry skin with a circular motion until the exfoliation begins to activate.

Additional Exfoliation Benefits

Exfoliating primes the skin for waxing by making it easier for hairs to slide out from their roots, which can create longer lasting results.

Exfoliating helps the skin on your face better absorb your moisturizer and serums, which means they'll work more effectively.

Regular exfoliation reduces your chance of ingrown hairs—great for anyone prone to ingrown hairs on their chin and neck.

facial waxing services for men:

purple ear waxing icon

Ear

Do you get thick, dark hair on your ears? Waxing for hair removal is the best way to remove these hairs and leave your ears totally smooth. It’s best to leave this to the professionals though, as ears can be sensitive and difficult to wax on your own.

purple nose waxing icon

Nose

We all have nose hairs, and while they do serve a purpose, having excessive hair there is not a good look. By waxing just the outer tip of the nose, similarly to how you may have used hair trimmers in the past, you can easily and painlessly remove any stragglers. It’s important to see a waxing specialist particularly for this sensitive area to ensure that you do not remove too much hair. Ask your Wax Specialist about protecting facial hair you would like to keep intact, including your mustache.
