Nothing quite beats waxing for sheer smoothness and long lasting hair removal. At Turn Beautiful we use two types of Wax; Hot and Warm.
The wax removes hair from the root underneath the skin, not just from the surface, so the hair follicle needs to go through another cycle of re-growth which takes up to 6 weeks, unlike shaving where hair can grow back in days. Waxing is an efficient solution that is kinder on the skin than shaving, there’ll be no stubble rash, and the results will last for longer so you don’t have to worry about regrowth.
The Benefits Of Waxing
- Will help keep skin looking naturally smooth
- Eliminates stubble growth
- Waxing lasts 4-6 weeks – compare that to shaving which can last just a day or two
- Hairs become sparse over time
- Hairs become finer and weaker
- Slows down hair growth

Before Your Waxing Treatment
Lycon hot wax can bring out hairs as short as 1mm but please aim for hair to be at least 5mm long for maximum results.
For warm wax treatments please ensure that the hair to be waxed is a minimum of around 7mm – 10mm so that the wax will take to the hair effectively. This is normally around 2 weeks post-shaving growth for most ladies or 4-6 weeks post waxing.
Waxing After Treatment Advice
Freshly waxed skin needs to be looked after for 24 – 48 hours after treatment regardless of the size of the area that has been treated. The hair follicles will remain open for up to 12 hours and heat will be retained in the skin, therefore, to avoid any complications the following advice must be adhered to:
- No hot baths or showers for 24 hours
- No sunbeds or sun exposure for at least 24 hours
- Wear loose clothing after treatment
- Do not apply perfumed products for at least 24 hours
- Do not apply make-up over the waxed area
- Avoid touching the area that has been treated
- Do not swim for at least 24 hours
- Do not exfoliate for at least 24 hour
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer with ingrown hairs it is best not to try to squeeze them out of the skin as quite often this can lead to infection of the hair follicle. We would suggest exfoliating the areas you have waxed twice a week to prevent ingrown hairs, you may also like to try applying a suitable solution to help raise the hairs out of the skin. Further advice and products are available at the salon.
What’s The Difference Between Hot Wax And Warm Wax?
Warm waxing involves spreading a thin layer over the skin in the area for hair removal and a cloth strip is placed on top and removed with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and silky. This method is quick, and ideal larger areas of skin. We would normally recommend hot wax for coarser hair and intimate areas.
Lycon Hot Waxes – made of the finest resins, natural ingredients and aromatherapy oils – are perfect for short, stubborn hair on any part of the face and body and are very pliable and painless for most. They shrink-wrap and remove hair as short as 1mm. All Lycon Hot Waxes can be re-applied on the same area many times without the wax feeling too hot and without skin trauma or irritation.
