Is it worth getting a Brazilian? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Some women can’t bear the thought of one others can’t live without it. Like everything in life, waxing any part of your body is a choice.

And if you’re a diehard Brazilian fan or you’re just thinking about it, there are some essential facts you need to know before getting your next Brazilian. Let’s take a look at some of them.

1. The Pain Factor—Brazilians are uncomfortable. However, an experienced aesthetician minimizes your discomfort and the possible irritation during hair removal. Here at Oasis Health & Beauty Spa, we use top quality wax that adheres only to the hair, not your skin. In addition, we also use a pre-wax oil to soften your skin and further reduce irritation.

2. Our waxing technicians are trained and experienced—This is key! Our technicians know what they are doing and they do it extremely well. For you, that means the process is fast, usually 15-30 minutes, which minimizes discomfort.

3. Our wax is less irritating than other salon waxes. It is hypoallergenic, extremely flexible and will not get brittle or crack on your skin! This reduces your discomfort and speeds the whole procedure.

4. We use a specific waxing technique just for Brazilians. This technique, part of our on-going training, makes the whole procedure fast, as well as effective.

We are also vigilant about cleanliness—yours and ours! We use antiseptic products that reduce the remote chance of spreading bacteria, fungi and viruses by 99%.

Our experience, education and commitment allow you to relax and enjoy superb results!

Do You Hate Having “Hair Down There”? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Some women simply do not like having hair “down there.” They feel cleaner and sexier without it, and they love the silky softness of it.

If you’re among the fast-growing number of women that love a hair-free intimate area, but you’re concerned about privacy, professionalism, and hygiene, we’ve got terrific news!

OASIS Health & Beauty Spa is highly regarded in all three of these areas, and more!

To start with, we use only the highest quality wax available on the market. That means:

• It’s also perfect for sensitive skin

• Does not adhere to your skin—only hair (Imagine the difference for you with discomfort!)

• Endorsed by dermatologists (and what a fussy lot they are!)

What’s more, we go to every length possible to keep your discomfort to a minimum. Even though our wax does not adhere to the skin, we still apply a pre-wax oil to further reduce irritation.

We never double dip our wax spatulas! And, of course, we wear disposable gloves. It is our on-going commitment to you and our technicians to protect your health from cross contamination.

Our staff has been trained to use a specific technique for waxing your intimate area. That means a faster, less painful way to get smooth results.

Got more questions for us on Brazilians? We’d love to hear them!

4 Key Questions To Ask Before Getting A Brazilian Wax By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Mythology abounds on how scary it is to get a Brazilian. The topic even makes for some good raunchy comedy.

So, if you’re one of those women that just hates hair “down there,” you owe it to yourself to get accurate information before you schedule your appointment.

That’s where we come in.

Here’s our list of recommendations for a smooth, beautiful Brazilian.

• Don’t be shy about asking for the technician’s qualifications. Where did she get her training. How long has she been doing Brazilians? Does she have any testimonials?

• Ask about the type of wax used. You want a hard wax. This is best for Brazilians. Make sure the wax adheres only to the hair, not to the skin. Otherwise, your pain factor will be greatly magnified.

• Ask about hygienic practices. What is used to prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and the like? How do they ensure your health safety and that of the technician? Is everything disposable?

• Ask about topical pain relief. Do they have a topical to apply to reduce pain? Do they have recommendations for reducing pain before you get to your appointment?

Any reputable spa will welcome these questions and encourage more. We sure do!

We love to show, with enormous pride, our technique for Brazilian waxing, our hygiene practices, our experience, and the top-of-the-line wax we use to ensure a great experience for you!

Who doesn’t love a double dip of their favorite ice cream? But here’s one double dip you don’t want—waxing!

It’s extremely common for salons and spas to do what is commonly called “double dipping.” That means the disposable wooden spatula is dipped back into the wax pot AFTER it has been applied to your skin for hair removal.

It also means it has been double dipped on many other clients as well.

Even though it is a national standard regulation, double dipping is a BIG problem in the beauty industry, and here’s why. Wax is heated to a temperature just above 40 degrees or 4.44 Celsius. That isn’t hot enough to kill viruses or bacteria.

When a salon double dips, it increases your chance of exposure to all kinds of diseases. This is simply not a standard we tolerate!

At Oasis Health & Beauty Spa, we follow the national standard regulation against double dipping. (And even if it wasn’t regulation, it’s just gross!)

That’s why we also reinforce the regulation by intensively training our staff on this issue. You are in caring, capable hands with us. We value your health and ours.

5 Reasons You Should Not Let Your BFF Wax Your Eyebrows!

5 Reasons You Should Not Let Your BFF
Wax Your Eyebrows!

You may not think about it much, but eyebrows can make or break your entire look! You can have gorgeous eye make-up, but it’s completely ruined if your brows look like a hairy beast!

Of course, there is the other end of the spectrum, waxing brows too thin. Today’s style is a full, natural-looking brow. Extremely thin brows are a stark contrast and look very unnatural.

Because eyebrows are so important to your face and your overall look, it’s really important to have a trained professional wax them.

Here’s what we look at before we ever touch your brows:

1. The natural shape of your brow — It’s best not to work against nature. Instead, we follow her lead.

2. Your face shape-The shape of your face is equally important to gorgeous brows. The wrong brow shape can make your face look more narrow, wider, or just plain flat!

3. The arch of your brow — Many people put the arch in the wrong place and that works against your whole look. We have a tried-and-true technique that always puts the arch exactly where it belongs.

4. Stopping point — It’s important to know just where to end your brow. You don’t want it too long or it will make your eye area look droopy. If they are too short, brows will look weirdly rectangular.

5. Plucking — We keep this to a bare minimum. Over plucking will eventually create a thin brow and you don’t want that. Only pluck once every 3 weeks.

Waxing that enhances your whole look takes skill, training, and experience, and that’s what we do best!

What To Ask Before Getting Waxed By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Getting a Brazilian wax for the first time can be scary. You heard about other women’s bad experiences. You’ve seen how movies use waxing as a topic for comedy. It’s no wonder you have to think twice, thrice, even more times to seriously consider getting it done.

So, the best way to go about this is to get accurate information before you schedule your appointment.

And this is where we come in.

In order to get a good and non-frightening experience at a waxing salon, it’s best to ask a few questions to put your mind at ease.

  1. Ask about the technician’s qualifications. Where did she get her training? How long has she been doing Brazilians? Does she have any testimonials?
  2. Ask about the type of wax used. The best to use for Brazilians is a hard wax. Make sure the wax adheres only to the hair, not to the skin. It would be a lot more painful otherwise.
  3. Ask about hygienic practices. What is used to prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and the like? How do they ensure your health safety and that of the technician? Is everything disposable?
  4. Ask about topical pain relief. Do they have a topical to apply to reduce pain? Do they have recommendations for reducing pain before you get to your appointment?

Any reputable spa will welcome these questions and encourage more. We sure do!

Is There A Difference Between Salon Wax And Convenience Store Brands? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Sometimes our clients tell us they try to wax at home, often with disastrous results. Most people don’t realize that waxing is a skill. It’s not as easy as it looks!

If experience is one-half of a successful waxing experience, then the other half is the product. Store brands are not always as effective in removing hair, requiring several applications, and that causes unnecessary irritation.

What’s worse, convenience store waxes adhere to your skin taking off the top layer with the wax, exposing it to possible infection.

Our wax does no such thing. It adheres only to the hair. You can imagine the difference that makes in your overall waxing experience!

With our professional salon wax, you get the added benefit of soothing agents to prevent inflammation and irritation.

Because we have been professionally trained and have years of know-how, your waxing appointments are quick and as hygienic as humanly possible without unnecessary pain.

It’s experience that pays you back!

How To Get A Flawless Bikini Wax By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Who doesn’t love a smooth bikini area? It takes all the worry out of going to the beach. It also gives your whole intimate area a cleaner more defined look.

Because bikini waxing can be uncomfortable, and for some, embarrassing, we go the extra mile for our clients.

You are draped at all times and we use a disposable G-string to add to your comfort. The G-string actually helps us to do a more precise job. You can show us the line of your swimsuit using the G-string as a guide.

This allows us to further tailor your wax to your needs. Next up is the wax itself. You won’t find this kind of wax in a convenience store. Our wax does not adhere to your skin, only the hair.

That means less discomfort you. And to further reduce discomfort, we apply a pre-oil to soften your skin and reduce irritation.

As seasoned wax professionals, we know that women are more sensitive to pain around the time of their menstrual cycle. That’s why we encourage you to schedule your bikini wax a week before or after your period.

Lastly, you can rest assured that hygiene is a top priority with us. We use only disposable panties and we never, ever double dip wax spatulas!

A few quick minutes in our experienced care and you’re off to enjoy your flawless wax!

Got questions about getting a Brazilian? Great! We’ve got answers. Here’s our list of what to do before and after your Brazilian wax.

Before Your Brazilian:
• DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch—no longer! This is the ideal length for less pain and a quicker wax session.

• DO help prevent ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the area several days before your appointment.

• DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. You’ll feel more comfortable and so will your wax technician.

• DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour beforehand, if you’re very sensitive.

• DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive, causing more pain.

• DON’T apply any creams or lotions before your wax. You’ll get better results if your skin is dry.

After your Brazilian:
• DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.

• DO wash the area twice daily if you are prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs. Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.

• If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them! This could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription).

• DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials to prevent irritation. It’s best to stick to natural fabrics that breathe.
