Welcome to microblading fever!

You’ve been reading about microblading for a while now. Microblading is basically eyebrow tattoos that look like natural eyebrows, rather than the old school tattoo eyebrows that looked anything but natural.

What is microblanding?

During the microblading process we use a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one. Our eyebrow artists manually apply natural brow tattoos of individual hair strokes to your skin in order to create attractive, realistic brows. Read more

Celebrities Speak: Groom that Bush!

Celebrities Speak: Groom that Bush!

When it comes to pubic hair, most people, groom their pubic hair some other way. Some trim it with scissors, other people– like Jennifer Lopez – break out the razor, and some others, just go Brazilian. It only takes a trip to the local salon – like Wax Spa – to get a good waxing or laser treatment.

Needless to say, each style preference is left up to the individual. The one thing that is common among the general population is that there is a constant pressure on maintaining some sort of grooming from society. Not a lot of people are pleased to deal with other people’s bushes.

Waxing and laser is particularly common among celebrities whose bodies are often exposed in photo and video shoots to the public. Some want to be well groomed, and some want it all gone. Here are our three top celebrities who hate the “bush.”

Jennifer Aniston

The beloved Jennifer Aniston – also known as Rachel from the hit television show, Friends – has no shame on saying that she removes all pubic hair. All of it. In fact, it’s been reported that she is obsessed with staying hair-free. For Jennifer, wax is the perfect option.

Rihanna

The worldwide singing sensation is a natural hit-maker when it comes to music. Not only she sings with smoothness, but her down region is also smooth. She has confessed to actually enjoy getting Brazilian waxes. In the literal sense.  When getting a wax session at a spa, she turned down the numbing cream and laughed: ‘No way, I love the pain. It feels good to me.’

Kim Kardashian

Kim is known everywhere basically for being known. Aside from her infamous sex tape – which gave everyone a view of her pubic hair area situation. Kardashian told Allure “I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms … my entire body is hairless.”

 

 

10 reasons Why Waxing Beats Shaving

shutterstock_464429735To wax or to shave? It is a good question for both men and women nowadays. Actually, this simple life choice can affect your everyday life. Shaving can be an easy and fast option for removing your body hair because it’s cheap. It only takes a razor and a couple of minutes to be ready to go. On the other hand, waxing can be a little bit more expensive, but more time efficient in the long run – along with many other benefits. When comparing pros and cons, and choosing what’s best for you and your skin, there is only one winner: waxing.

Here are ten specific reasons why you should choose waxing as your primary hair removal method:

1. No more cuts

Razors and cuts are close friends. When shaving, you can harm yourself due to sharp blades, or just thinking and getting distracted. Unintentional cuts on your skin aren’t fun, but they’re very likely to happen if you shave regularly. Waxing just takes about a 45 min trip to the spa once a month. Our professional waxing experts at Wax Spa will help you have the best experience possible.

2. No more itching

If you’ve ever shaved your legs, armpits or pubic areas, you know what we’re talking about here. It’s ITCHY! This is a very common problem for women and men even right after shaving. What about when you go to the beach? Itchier! With waxing, this is prevented by using high-quality and nourishing waxes like the ones used at Wax Spa.

3. Long-lasting results

What shaving basically does is to cut off the visible part of the hair that’s on the surface of your skin. Unfortunately, that hair showing is much larger than that. That’s the reason why after shaving, hair grows back quickly compared to waxing. Waxing actually removes the hair from the root, taking your hair longer to show off your skin – three to four weeks – since it has to grow back again.

4. Goodbye hairs. Maybe. Most Likely.

Since hairs are pulled out from the root when you wax, the hair follicles are weakened. When hair grows back, it’s less strong and it will continue to be weaker as you regularly wax. It may even cease to grow!

5. Hello thinner hairs.

You already know that weakens the hair follicles, right? Now, this also makes your hairs start to grow much thinner. Also, hairs will become easier to pull out.

6. Waxing removes dead skin cells

Another benefit from waxing is that it also exfoliates your skin. Have you ever felt your skin smoother after waxing? This is because when you pull out the wax from your skin, it takes away dead cells and leaves a brand-new layer of skin.

7. Smoother outcome

Your skin will be smoother and more attractive after your waxing session. This is a huge benefit that comes along with waxing and puts it on top of the preferred hair- removal methods list.

8. No more hyperpigmentation

In some cases, hyperpigmentation – when small areas of the skin become darker than the rest –  is developed because of shaving constantly. This will never happen with waxing!

9. Endless Options

At Wax Spa, we provide you the option to choose among different body waxes with scents and moisturizing properties, and we only use body waxing that protect sensitive skins. Alternatives are endless…

10. Better results overall!

Even though shaving is faster than waxing, it won’t give you long term results. On the other hand, waxing just takes about a 45-minute trip to the spa once a month and you’ll get benefits that will help you in the long run. Shaving can save you when all of a sudden you need to attend a party or any other kind of special event. It might be the easiest way out, but it’s certainly not the best. However, waxing is the preferred option for a healthy skin. Perks of pulling out the hair from the root!

Synthetic vs. Silk vs. Mink – What Eyelash Type to Choose?

shutterstock_450265984One of the things that people often wonder before getting eyelash extensions is: What’s the difference? As you may know there are three types of eyelash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Understating the pros and cons of getting one or the other type of eyelash extension is crucial for your overall final look – We want you to look fabulous!

 

Synthetic eyelash extensions: If you want to go for a more dramatic and made-up look, this is probably your best option. In appearance, they are a little shinier or glossier than the other options. Because they are made from acrylic material, they are the firmest of all which allows them to hold their curl always on point.

Synthetic eyelashes should –most likely-  be used for younger clients that have healthy and dense lashes of their own to avoid thinning of natural lashes. These eyelashes are thick and heavier than other types and are a great option for someone with very thick natural lashes who’s seeking for a simply fantastic.

Silk eyelash extensions: If you are looking for a mid-weight type of lash extensions that give you a finer and more flexible look than the synthetic type, this is the choice for you. These eyelashes look naturally glamorous, yet thick as the synthetic ones. It’s a good option for people who have weak or fine eyelashes because they are lighter weight. So, for a more natural look that lasts longer than synthetic, yet still looks full and curly, this is the option for you.

 Faux-mink lash extensions: These are man-made imitation of a real mink fur. This is the option for those who want to get very fine, soft and silky eyelashes. They go closer to your eye, giving a more natural look, yet with a glossy look. If you want a dramatic “Kardashian look” this is not the best option for you. They don’t tend to twist and can last a couple of weeks with proper care. However, this type of eyelash extensions takes a lot longer to apply and are more expensive.

Bottom line: If you are looking for a dramatic look, consider getting a synthetic eyelash extension. For a more natural look, we definitely recommend mink.

At Wax Spa,we specialize on synthetic eyelash extensions because they come in different types, colors and lengths to fit everyone’s definition of glamour. You can also choose from pre-curled short, medium, or long synthetic lashes that can look natural (think “athletic length”) or ultra-dramatic for a red carpet look.

Each individual lash is attached one-by-one via a trained technician and curved to replicate a natural eyelash for maximum volume. The feathery, light-weight lashes are water resistant and can last for several months if touch-ups are maintained every two to three weeks.
