Waxing

At Bare Essentials in Oxfordshire, body, leg and face waxing is easy, comfortable and efficient

fleuronWaxing 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 eight weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.
If you have very sensitive skin it might be worth popping in for a patch test as some people can react to the wax (although this is not very common).

Fancy getting your eyebrows reshaped?
Hair grows in three stages, known as Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. Taking the time to grow out your brows is the best way to start when desiring a new or fuller shape. Though women need to understand that hair won’t grow where it never existed, and areas that were over-plucked for some time may grow back sparsely, or not at all.

Hair grows in three stages, known as Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. hair is at a different spot in each stage, which is why all hairs don’t grow back at the same time — some may be in Telogen (known as the resting stage) while others are visible above the skin. These stages take 6-8 weeks, so to take into account that some hairs might be on the first stage, allow three to six months in total to grow your brows out. Any longer than that and you’re wasting time.
