About Waxing

Many men often get body waxing done, especially back waxing, bum waxing and groin waxing. No need to feel embarrassed or worried that you might be alone in wanting to get waxing done. I often do 10+ male Brazilians a week.

The process of waxing occurs 2 ways, by using either Strip Wax or Hot Wax: Strip wax works via a thin layer of wax being applied over the hair using a spatula, a strip of papery cotton sheet is then pressed over the wax and quickly pulled off. This process is used for most body waxing like Back, leg & chest waxing. Hot wax works via a small area of skin being covered with a dollop of thick wax, which sets hard and is then pulled off without a strip. This style of waxing is used for more sensitive areas like testicle waxing and brow / nose waxing.

Clipping

Needing that excess body hair reduced but dont want to put up with the pain of waxing? I do offer body clipping which can trim the hair to a near shaved length or longer if desired. Minimal time is generally needed to trim body hair depending mainly on desired length. Showers are available after trimming if needed.

Pricing: Few areas - $20, Full body - $30

NEED SHAVING?
Wanting to have that shaved feeling? I do offer shaving to body areas excluding general area. I only shave in the direction of the hair growth and I use a cut throat single blade to do all shaving treatments. As shaving takes much longer the price is reflected in this, for a personalised quote on areas to be shaved contact us today.

Post-Waxing Care Products

Tired of dealing with after waxing irritations? Many people suffer from post waxing irritation, ingrown's and redness. Thankfully there are many products on the market to help you get through this annoying stage in your waxing. Ingrown ZONE After Waxing Spray is available from Griffins House for $20 and is highly effective at minimising possible irritation, redness, rashes or in-grown hairs.

A single bottle can last a few waxes depending on how great the area was you got waxed and how much you decide to use while treating the area.

After many years of offering products to treat post waxing irritations, I have found clients to get the best results from using Ingrown Zone Hair Serum. Unlike many other products such as topical creams or lotions, The Ingrown Zone Hair Serum is formulated to be applied as a fine mist. This allows a much easier application and fast penetration and treatment into the skin. Griffins House highly recommends your consideration of using this product if you feel you may suffer from any post waxing irritations, remembering that its easier to apply the product for treatments prior to getting irritation rather the treating established ingrowns.

Professional Hygiene

Waxing treatments are all performed using single use vinyl gloves to prevent any transmission or introduction of bacteria to the waxing site. All linen is single use only per customer then washed in detergent and antibacterial wash and dried in a clothes dryer.

Spatulas used for waxing are all cleaned firstly with wax solvent then scrubbed with a nail brush in hot soapy water then stored in a sealed container prior to use.

Griffin's House of Beauty uses only new and not recycled waxes.

Pre-Waxing Advice
  • DO NOT SHOW UP SWEATY OR HOT. Sweat can be wiped away but moisture in the skin stays and makes waxing more difficult and can lead to server skin irritation and prolonged skin recovery
  • It is best to lightly exfoliate the skin 24 hours prior to waxing to lift any ingrown hairs and can also help reduce pain during the waxing session.
  • It is NOT recommended to tan in the sun or using a solarium prior to waxing, as this could cause severe skin irritation and peeling. It can also reduce the skins ability to heal itself, leaving your skin prone to prolonged irritation and ingrowns.
  • Best results will be achieved when the hair is longer than 5mm of length, shorter than this will reduce the likelihood of the hair being removed.
  • Avoid exposing areas to be waxed to sunlight or sunbeds, any areas that are burnt or peels cannot be waxed.
  • If hair to be removed is very long it can be trimmed but not necessary, keeping in mind it needs to be 1cm long still for waxing.

 

Post-Waxing Advice
  • It is recommended to leave your waxing appointment in loose fitting clothing to prevent rubbing and irritation.
  • A gentle exfoliation 3 days after your waxing will help bring through any hair under the skin then continuing this process every 2 days thereafter for a week or so. It is important to NOT exfoliate prior to 3 days.
  • Applying an after waxing lotion like the one listed below morning and night for the first few days will help reduce future ingrowns and help reduce redness and irritation. You can continue applying the product after 3 days just at a reduced amount.
  • Avoid causing sweating / exercise within 24 hours. If sweating does occur be sure to shower ASAP.
  • Avoid sun-exposure/solariums for 48 hours after and before waxing.
  • Its best to rebook your next waxing appointment 4 - 5 weeks apart and avoid shaving which will thicken then hair and cause irregular growth.
