Everyone knows they have to make a waxing appointment in the summer – it is bikini season after all! But did you know that it’s important to get waxed before winter hits as well? We talked to Brittany Boehlefeld with the European Wax Center to find out everything you need to know about winter waxing.
To be clear: she knows you won’t be rocking mini skirts and swimsuits in the winter. However, just because you aren’t showing off your legs, doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing them for warmer weather (especially because long winters are just not as common in Texas). The fall and winter is the perfect time to switch from shaving to waxing.
“In order to wax, your hair must be one-quarter inch long,” Boehlefeld explained. “Since hair grows in three different cycles, it does require a minimum of two weeks of growth, with three to four weeks of growth after shaving for best results. It’s easier to hide this hair growth in the cooler months, so right now is a great time to grow it out and start waxing! The more you wax, the finer and sparser the hair will grow back. So when you stop shaving in the fall and start waxing, that means your results will be even better by the spring/summer months and you’ll be bikini ready. You’ll never want to return to another hair removal method again! Just make sure to get a wax pass to make this unbelievably affordable.”
Right now, the Brazilian wax is the most popular service, followed by underarms, nose, eyebrows and full-leg wax. There’s no denying it: women – and men – enjoy being hair-free! If you have never been a European Wax Center member before, Boehlefeld mentioned that you can get one complimentary service: eyebrow, underarm, nose, bikini line, or a Brazilian wax for half-off. Additionally, you will also qualify for the first-time guest wax pass, which is “the best offer we have!” according to Boehlefeld. After you join, refer a guest and you will get $10 added to your account after they complete a service as a thank you!
