What is a Brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax (sometimes called a Full Brazilian) is a wax treatment that removes all hair in the pubic region and between the buttocks, sometimes leaving a small “landing strip” in the front. It first became popular on the beaches of Brazil, where tiny bikinis and thongs are the most fashionable styles.
What type of waxes do you offer?
We provide a full range of waxing services for all parts of the body, including the face, back, bikini area and more. See our list of services here.
What type of wax do you use?
We use either soft wax or hard wax, depending on your skin and your unique needs.
Does waxing hurt?
We won’t say it’s painless—but we do everything we can to make the experience as comfortable for you as possible. Our soft wax technique greatly reduces the amount of discomfort you may feel.
What is sugaring?
Sugaring is a sweet new way to get smooth, hairless skin using an all-natural paste made from sugar, lemon juice and water. Estheticians apply the warmed mixture to your skin, in the direction opposite of hair growth, wait for it to harden, and then remove it, along with the hair. HoneyBare is one of the best sugaring salons in the Dallas area, with experienced estheticians trained in this special technique.
How is sugaring different than waxing?
Both methods involve pulling the hair out at the root—but instead of using wax, sugaring is performed with a warm paste made from sugar, lemon juice and water. Sugaring also does not require strips, as waxing does, and the paste can be applied to a larger area, removing more hair at once.
Does sugaring hurt?
Sugaring does involve some discomfort, since hair is removed at the root. The experience is similar to waxing.
What types of ingredients are in your sugaring mixture?
Our exclusive sugaring formula is all-natural and organic, made from just three simple ingredients: sugar, lemon juice and water. You could eat it if you wanted—but we wouldn’t recommend it. (Too much sugar.)
Do you provide waxing and sugaring for men as well as women?
Yes. Some of our most popular treatments for men include chest, back, nose and ear waxes.
How long will the results of my wax treatment last?
If you wax regularly, you can expect three to four weeks of hairlessness. When your hair grows back, it will be softer and there will be less of it. If this is your first time waxing and you have been shaving your legs, it may take two or three treatments before you see a reduction in the amount of hair growing back.
How long do I have to grow my hair to get it waxed or sugared?
Hair needs to be at least ¼ of an inch long in order to be waxed.
How long do I have to wait to get waxed or sugared after shaving?
If you’ve been shaving your hair, wait three or four weeks. Hair grows in three cycles, so if you come in for a wax too early, your hair may grow back sooner.
Can I shave between visits?
Shaving or trimming before your visit is not recommended. Unlike shaving, waxing and sugaring do not cause stubble, so the hair that does grow back will be soft and fine. Since hair grows in cycles, it’s best to wait for all three cycles of hair to be present during your next wax. This way, it will take longer for hair to reappear. Trimming or shaving your hair also makes it more difficult for the wax to adhere to the hair, and can irritate hair follicles, causing ingrown hairs.
Do I have to make an appointment?
We recommend scheduling an appointment to avoid wait times, but we do accept walk-ins.
How long does it take to get a Brazilian wax? How about Brazilian sugaring?
At HoneyBare, you can get a Brazilian in less than 30 minutes.
How often should I get waxed or sugared?
It’s recommended to book an appointment every six weeks for best results.
What if I need to cancel?
Appointments may be cancelled with 24-hour notice. If you provided a credit card to hold your reservation, you will be charged half the price of the scheduled service if you cancel within less than 24 hours, or if you don’t show up for your appointment.
Is it safe to get a wax or sugaring treatment while pregnant?
Congratulations! Yes, it’s safe. Do let your esthetician know you’re pregnant, so that she can provide the best service. Skin is sometimes more sensitive during pregnancy.
Will my medications or allergies affect my wax treatment?
Let us know which medications you are taking, and what allergies you have. Some antibiotics and acne medicines make skin very sensitive, which can lead to the skin lifting when hair is removed. For this reason, you should not use the following medications and topical treatments while getting a wax: Accutane, Retin-A, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, Strivectin, Renova, ProActive, Avita, and benzoyl peroxide.
Will any medications affect my sugaring treatment?
You should not get a sugaring treatment if you’re using retinol or Vitamin C on your skin, taking steroids, or using Accutane. If you have bruising, swelling, rashes, open sores, a sunburn or cold sores, do not get sugared.
Does HoneyBare have age restrictions?
We perform waxing and sugaring services for adults of all ages. Clients between 15 and 17 years can have most services performed with signed parental consent, and the accompaniment of a parent. Our Brazilian wax is not offered for clients under the age of 15.
May I bring my child with me to my appointment?
Children under 5 are not permitted, since we can’t guarantee their safety while you are in the treatment room. Thanks for your cooperation!
Will my hair look thicker or darker when it grows back?
No. You’ll be pleased to see that your hair grows back finer and softer after waxing.
I have a sunburn! Can I still get waxed? Can I get sugared?
Ouch! Please wait for your skin to heal. Waxing now could cause lifting of your skin. Sugaring will also be painful if you have a sunburn.
Can I get a wax or sugaring treatment if I have a rash or irritated skin?
We want your skin to look amazing, not red and irritated. It’s better to wait until your skin heals, as waxing may cause the skin to lift, and sugaring may cause irritation.
Should I get a wax before or after a spray tan? What about sugaring?
While smooth, tanned skin does look great, we don’t recommend spray tans with waxing or sugaring treatments at all. If you get a spray-tan before your wax or sugaring, it may be removed along with the hair. Applying self-tanner after waxing or sugaring is not recommended because it can create a streaky, patchy appearance.
Is it a good idea to wax or get a sugaring treatment right before a special event if I’ve never waxed before?
It’s a great idea to wax before a special event—but we recommend getting used to waxing first. Try to have at least two waxes before your event so you can see how your skin will respond. Our recommendations for sugaring are the same.
Can I get a wax or sugaring treatment while I’m on my period?
Sure. Be sure to wear a tampon, and change it right before your appointment. Because skin can be more sensitive when you’re on your period, you may want to take some ibuprofen before your appointment.
How soon can I have sex after my Brazilian?
Avoid sexual contact for 48 hours after your appointment. Skin is more sensitive after waxing or sugaring, and more susceptible to bacterial infection.
What can I do to prepare?
Avoid caffeine for 5 hours before your appointment to reduce sensitivity, and if desired, take an Ibuprofin 30 minutes before your appointment. To make your experience even more comfortable, we recommend using a topical anesthetic, which we have available for purchase, 15 to 20 minutes before your appointment.
May I take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Ibuprofin, before I get waxed or sugared?
Yes. Taking Ibuprofen a half-hour before your appointment may minimize waxing pain.
Can I drink coffee before my appointment?
It’s better to wait until afterwards, as caffeine makes skin more sensitive.
What should I wear to get my treatment?
Wear anything you like. Looser clothing, such as comfy shorts or a dress, will help you to feel more comfortable after your wax or sugaring treatment.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Your skin will feel tender for about 48 hours. Taking Ibuprofin will reduce inflammation and sensitivity.
Can I get a tan after waxing or sugaring my skin?
We recommend waiting 48 hours after a wax or sugaring treatment before hitting the tanning bed, to avoid skin irritation. If you’re going to be in the sun, use sunscreen.
Can I exercise after my treatment?
Perspiration can make your skin feel irritated after a wax or sugaring treatment, so wait 48 hours if you can.
Should I exfoliate to avoid ingrown hairs?
Yes. A couple of days after your treatment, try using a loofah sponge or brush to exfoliate your skin in the shower. If you do this daily, it can help prevent ingrown hair.
Can I take a bath or get in the hot tub after waxing?
Intense heat, like saunas, hot tubs, and even hot baths can make your skin feel irritated after a wax, and may even cause infection. Wait 48 hours before getting into a hot tub or sauna.
Can I go swimming after a wax or sugaring treatment?
Wait 48 hours before getting into a swimming pool, to avoid irritation and/or infection.
What products can I use on my skin after waxing or sugaring?
Wait several hours after waxing to use deodorant, moisturizer or other products, to avoid clogging pores.
