DO YOU USE HARD WAX OR SOFT WAX?

KLOE uses Nufree.  Nufree acts like a soft wax, the hair is removed with paper strips, but it is a non-wax soy-based liquid hair remover system.  Nufree is the gold standard in hair removal and is carried by thousands of professional salons throughout the world. It was developed over 25 years ago to help plastic surgeons remove hair from a patient before surgery. Here are just a few of the reasons why Nufree is the most effective hair removal treatment in the world.

Nufree is NOT A WAX and never sticks to the skin.
Nufree is self-preserving antibacterial/antimicrobial so it’s safe, clean and germ free.
Nufree is completely BOTANICAL and safe for the entire body.
Nufree doesn’t dry and can be erased any time!  Nufree is scientifically tested and uses no animal products.


I’M LOOKING FOR A SANITARY SALON, DO YOU DOUBLE DIP?
We absolutely DO NOT double dip!  KLOE prides itself in clean, sanitary state-certified conditions never reusing strips or sticks in order to ensure that each client stays clean and protected.  The treatment room is sanitized between each client and I wear gloves to protect the client.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND IN THE ROOM WITH ME FOR SUPPORT WHILE I’M BEING WAXED?
At KLOE, you are in the best possible hands! My insurance policy states no one except the person receiving the service is allowed in the waxing room.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BIKINI, TAILORED BIKINI, AND A BRAZILIAN?
The bikini wax cleans up the underwear line and to about 2 inches out. The tailored bikini is a bikini wax that tucks it in a little bit more, is swimsuit friendly, and you can take it down off the top as much as you prefer. The brazilian is everything front, underneath and back, or you may leave a triangle or landing strip. My advice? If you’re gonna do it, wax it all!

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR A WAXING APPOINTMENT?
Out of consideration to your wax technician, please come freshly showered. If you are used to shaving, make sure your hair is at least 1/4 an inch long, which is usually about 14 days of growth.

SHOULD I TRIM BEFORE I COME IN?
No! More often than not, people trim too much. If your hair is too short, the wax won’t adhere very well and some hair may be left behind. Leave the trimming to me!

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET WAXED, AND HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
You will have very little to no hair growth for the first 7-14 days. After that, it starts growing back finer and softer.  For most people, the ideal time frame is to wax every 4 weeks.

IS IT TRUE THE MORE CONSISTENT I AM WITH WAXING THE LIGHTER THE HAIR RE-GROWTH IS?
From my experience, this is true, especially when you are maintaining a regular four-week waxing schedule. Over time hair follicles are repeatedly damaged from being removed and growth slows down. However, once you stop waxing on a regular basis, the follicles adapt again and you will revert back to your pre-waxing growth cycle.

WHAT SHOULD I DO FOR POST WAX CARE?
Keep the skin clean for 48 hours. Use your Finipil lotion twice/day on damp skin to cool skin and protect the pores. Shower immediately after workouts; no tanning, hot tubs, hot yoga, etc to prevent bumps from bacteria getting in the open pores.  After 48-72 hours, exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! Gentle, but mild exfoliation works the best. I carry a line of affordable skincare products to help keep those pesky ingrown hairs away.

I AM PREGNANT, CAN I STILL WAX?
Please double check with your physician, but I recommend keeping to your normal 4-6 week waxing routine to keep the wax as painless as possible.  We will check in with your skin to make sure that hormonal changes aren’t making your skin a contraindication for waxing.  We will also talk about different types of exfoliating that are approved for pregnant women.

I AM USING ACNE MEDICATIONS, CAN I STILL WAX?
Please double check with your physician, but I recommend NO FACIAL WAXING while using topical medications from your dermatologist including, but not limited to Retin-A, Differin, Epiduo, and some antibiotics.  I recommend discontinuing use for 14 days to prevent sensitivities, but keep in mind that long term use sensitizes the skin, making waxing more harsh on the affected area.  ABSOLUTELY NO WAXING anywhere on the body while taking the drug Accutane.  You must discontinue taking Accutane for at least 6-8 months to ensure that waxing will not harm the skin.


WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Please move or change your appointment at least 24 hours in advance.  Appointments that are no showed will be charged the full price to the credit card held on file, 50% of the service price will be charged for late cancellations.

WHAT IF I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
If you have additional concerns about waxing, even after the appointment, please do not hesitate email Krista or call her directly at 651-247-0225.
