Picture this: it’s the morning of your wax, you wake up feeling a little off and a couple seconds later you realize that Aunt Flow decided to make an appearance–how rude! You cancel your appointment, get charged a 50% cancellation fee, move your appointment out a week, mess up your hair growth cycle, and all-in-all, you let your period ruin what you were hoping to be a smooth day, literally & figuratively.
So, let’s talk about it: can you get waxed while you’re on your period? Yes, yes, yes, and let me repeat myself for the women in the back, YES! Just pop a pain reliever about an hour beforehand, and come to your appointment with a fresh tampon or menstrual cup in. As a waxer, I do not mind, it doesn’t change your wax results or the process in any way… Seriously!
The only thing that you have to keep in mind is, you may be slightly more sensitive getting waxed on, or around the time of your period. That’s all, seriously, no biggie!
Oh, and let me fill you in on a secret… Are you ready? Guess what?! I get my period too! It’s not a big deal and doesn’t bother me one bit!
Aunt Flow or no Aunt Flow, I look forward to seeing you at your next waxing appointment!
