Prepping for a waxing session can be nerve-wracking – how do you get ready for this (often painful) beauty ritual? We asked Ici Paris Spa Director Gordana Tirnanic the tough questions – check out our Q&A for a mini-master class in waxing etiquette!
What are some signs of a well-run spa that can be relied on for good waxing results? A well-run and reputable spa should participate in regular inspections done by Health Canada; these guarantee that hygiene standards are met. Spas should promote the use of disposable applicators and cartridges as well as an overall clean environment. Plus – no double dipping!
Is there an ideal time to book a waxing appointment? We always advise not to come in right before or after your periods because the body is more sensitive at that time.
