We visited The Wax & Thread Company in Brighton to talk to them about their favourite treatments for brides ahead of their big day…
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE BRIDAL TREATMENT?
Our signature treatment – which is also our most popular – is the Brazilian wax. Waxing removes hair for a longer period of time and with better results than any other method.
It removes the hair at the root and not just at skin level and typically lasts anywhere from three up to six weeks; perfect for wedding days and honeymoons. The Hot Wax we use is less sticky and much kinder to the skin leaving minimal reaction afterwards.
WHEN SHOULD THIS BE BOOKED?
If you have never waxed the area before, the closer to the big day the better because your hair has become used to other hair-removal methods such as shaving, which results in uneven growth until it adapts to the waxing cycle.
If you have waxed before, two to three days before the big day is ideal. Also, if you’re going to have a trial wax, we would recommend doing so a month or six weeks prior to your wedding day. This allows enough time for the regrowth to come through before your big day and means you can road test it.
ADVICE FOR THE BRIDE OR GROOM?
Maintaining a healthy diet and staying hydrated leading up to your wedding day is essential. Generally if you are having any chemical treatment or using a topical acne treatment over the areas to be waxed, particularly on the face, consult your doctor or dermatologist before your treatment. Exfoliating up to two days prior to a wax also assists in hair removal.
We are hoping to be able to bring professional Waxing & Threading experience to the surrounding areas in Sussex by expanding our business next year so watch this space!
