Should I Wax at Home or Go to a Salon?

Should I Wax at Home or Go to a Salon?

Many women (and men!) regularly head to their local salon or spa to take care of personal grooming and hair removal. Maybe you want to get the perfect brows or tidy up your bikini line before putting on a bathing suit, or just regularly wax your legs for the long-lasting results. If you are visiting a spa or a salon for your hair removal needs, you know the drill.

If you have been on the fence about trying waxing at home, let’s get one thing straight: You can do this!

First, here are 5 things you should know about waxing at home:

  1. It hurts less than you think! If you have ever tweezed your brows, you can handle waxing at home.
  2. It really is like a band-aid - You just need to rip it off! It is uncomfortable for a second, then it's done!
  3. Once you have tried waxing at home a couple of times you will be in love with the results!
  4. Each time you wax, the hair grows back weaker and therefore it actually gets easier every time!
  5. It is going to save you a ton of money and time!

Here are the top reasons you should be waxing at home:

Waxing at home is more convenient

You have enough going on! Fitting in appointments in the middle of your workday, or planning your weekend around getting waxed is just not necessary. Plus we all know that it’s totally normal to have a little bit of redness in areas like the upper lip or brows for a short period of time after hair removal. Going back to work with a pink mustache isn’t ideal. Waxing at home means you are in control! Fit in a quick bikini touch up before bed and let things settle down overnight while wearing loose pajamas. Pack quick and easy wax strips in your carry-on when headed on a beach vacation- you can get smooth skin on-the-go! Reach for the Parissa Roll-On Sugar Wax and give yourself the head to toe treatment from the comfort (and privacy!) of your home with a glass of wine on a Saturday night! The point is – when you wax at home, it's on your schedule!

Waxing at home will save you money:

Depending on what area (or areas!) of your body you are waxing, your monthly outgoings at the salon can rack up pretty quickly. The average cost of a brow wax at a salon is between $8-$20. The average cost of a bikini wax at the salon is between $35-95. The average cost of a leg wax at the salon is $60-90. And don’t forget to add tax and a tip for your esthetician!

Waxing at home will generally cost you between $10-20 for enough wax strips, sugar wax or salon wax to get your legs and upper lip fuzz-free, or for 5-6 bikini or brow clean-ups! Even if you simply wax at home between salon visits, you will save a ton of cash. Now THAT is something to get excited about. Why not save your money by taking care of the waxing at home and head to the spa for relaxing steam and a massage instead!

If you have been paying to have your brows done every 3 weeks, its time to revisit your budget and put that money to use on something more fun – because you can TOTALLY do this yourself!
