Waxing

At John & Associates in Tattershall, we have created a waxing environment especially for the client, where the highest level of service and hygiene are met. Using the best products and with a superior proficiency in hot wax, we will give you the best waxing experience available. We aim to give as pain free a wax as possible – after all, we get waxed too!
We are proud to say that we have a ‘no double dipping policy’. This means we do not redip the spatula back into the wax pot. So once it touches your skin it is disposed of. It eliminates any possibility of bacteria, hair or secretions being transferred back into the wax pot, and reapplied on to you or the next client. This ensures the safest and most hygienic treatment for you.

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to six weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face and bikini area. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. If waxing is done regularly for several years, permanent hair reduction may be achieved.

We use two types of wax:

Hot wax; used on the face, underarm and bikini. Hot wax is actually used at a cooler temperature than strip wax! It encases the entire hair shaft as opposed to strip waxes that bond more to the surface of the skin. The removal of the hair using hot wax is less painful and reduces trauma to the skin surface ensuring the treatment is more comfortable for you. It gives you a better finish and a more pain free wax, especially on the bikini area. Hot wax is especially suited for sensitive skin.


Strip wax; is used on the legs, back and arms.

We offer all types of body waxing from brows to Brazilians! Brazilians are super popular and are easily our most requested bikini wax. Using our honed technique and client care we minimise any discomfort. If you have ever thought of getting a Brazilian, just pick up the phone and take the plunge. Your therapist will be more than happy to go through any questions and talk you through the treatment step by step.

WAXING FAQS

  • Does it hurt?
    Here at John & Associates we are not into pain, after all we get waxed too! We want to make your experience as pain free and comfortable as possible. If it is your first wax or if you have been clipping, shaving or using depilatory creams, your hair will have become stronger, so you may feel a slight discomfort. This only lasts a few seconds. Once you have been waxed the hair weakens, so each time it becomes more comfortable. For best results, return every 4-5 weeks for your waxing.
  • I’m nervous! Help!
    Don’t be nervous, you are in good hands. It is normal to be apprehensive, after all it’s not every day you’re half naked in front of a stranger is it?! Your therapist has seen it all and has the t-shirt. This is her job, so don’t be shy or embarrassed. We want to give you the best wax you have ever had.
  • What do I do before my wax?
    A few days before your appointment exfoliate the area. This helps get rid of expired cells and prepare the hair for your wax. On the day of your wax do not moisturise, apply deodorants or have any hot showers or heat based treatments (i.e. sauna, steam, sunbeds) If you have sensitive skin, why not have a complimentary patch test 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. Try and avoid getting waxed in the run up to your period as you will be more sensitive. Avoid drinking caffeine on the day of your wax as it sensitises you. Strange but true!
  • What is hot wax?
    Hot wax is sometimes also known as hard wax or peelable wax, and is a wax that does not require paper strips to remove it, it is peeled off. As the wax sets, it shrink-wraps around the hair and lifts it up from the follicle. When it sets it is then simply peeled off. It is the most suitable wax for facial, underarm and bikini waxing. It is great for sensitive skin.
  • What is strip wax?
    This is a wax that uses a muslin / paper strip to remove the wax and unwanted hair.
  • What is a Brazilian?
    A Brazilian is an extreme bikini wax, where only a strip of hair remains. All the hair from the labia (lips) and bum is removed. A ‘landing’ strip or small triangle is left on the bikini area.
  • What is a Hollywood?
    A Hollywood wax leaves you completely bare. Totally bald! All the pubic hair is removed.
  • I have my period. Do I need to cancel my Brazilian?
    No, you can still be waxed, just wear a tampon. Remember we do not double dip, so you can be assured of hygiene.
  • I'm pregnant. Can I still get my Hollywood?
    Absolutely, your therapist will go through everything you need to know for the course of your pregnancy waxes.
