HAIR BE GONE!
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxedarea for two to eight weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms,back, abdomen, and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
This is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.Method to remove large amounts of hair at one time, best for back, chest, and legs.
This utilizes warm wax and is applied without no cloth or strips. The wax hardens when it cooled allowing the easy removal without the aid of cloths. This method is beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Some discomfort will occur as the hair follicles is removed. At Avenue Hair Styling & Day Spa we prefer the hard wax for the eyebrow for the control of the application.

BENEFITS & DRAWBACKS
There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time.It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer and finer hair lighter in color.
There are many drawbacks of waxing as well. Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Although the pain is not long-lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas. Another drawback of waxing is that some people experience ingrown hairs, red bumps, and minor bleeding. This is more likely to occur when waxing areas with thick hair, especially the first few times when follicles are strongest. While usually impossible to eliminate, ingrown hairs can be reduced by regularly exfoliating, and applying an astringent or a solution of astringent and oil (tea tree oil).
