FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Nicole Nelson Beauty's cancellation policy?
We are an appointment only studio. A 50% deposit is required for all online booking to reserve your appointment. We ask for 24 hours notice for rescheduling or cancellations. Without providing 24 hours notice, you will be charged a 100% for the scheduled service.
Can I receive a facial or waxing service if I am pregnant?
Yes! You may experience a little more sensitivity due to your increased hormone levels. Also, keep in mind you may be obsolete to certain exfoliating ingredients found in our facial treatments. Please consult with your doctor prior to scheduling an appointment.
How bad does waxing hurt?
The level of pain is dependent upon your tolerance. Certain areas of the body are more painful than others. Some people compare the experience to ripping off a Band-Aid®.
How can I prepare for my wax?
We recommend taking a warm shower or bath right before the appointment to help soften the skin and hairs. Using a gentle body polish 24 - 48 hours prior to the appointment will break down and loosen any dead skin cells around the base of the hair. Avoid caffeine and alcoholic beverages 24 hours prior to the appointment because it can increase sensitivity to the skin. Wear loose fitting, breathable clothing to reduce friction against their skin. Some find Tylenol or Ibuprofen to be helpful 30 minutes prior to the service as well.
How long does my hair need to be for a Brazilian or underarm wax?
For the best possible result, the hair should be 1/4 of an inch A good way to test this is to see if your hair covers at least half of your pinky fingernail or the length of a grain of rice. Clients should wait at least 3-4 weeks post shaving or using a chemical depilatory (Nair™ or Veet®) to ensure the hair is the appropriate length. If the hair is longer, just leave it, there is no need to trim it.
Can I receive a wax while I'm on my period?
Yes, but we encourage clients wear a tampon or menstrual cup during the service. Although waxing is achievable, you may experience more sensitivity and perspire more than normal. If you are concerned at all, please wait until your cycle ends before scheduling.
How often should I get waxed?
Everyone's hair growth cycle is different so we'll offer a custom timeline at the end of your first service. However, the average timeframe is as follows:
- Facial areas every 2-4 weeks
- Underarms every 2-3 weeks
- Bikini/Brazilian every 4 weeks
- All other body areas every 4-6 weeks
