Once we have prepped the pubic area, we apply the sugar wax and remove the pubic hair in “small batches”.

Noticed the “shiny patch” marked “2” with sugar wax, and the hairless patch marked “1”?

To minimize the pain further, we stretch the skin in the direction against the hair growth.

Sheila says

Vivian was punctual and very professional. She talked me through everything she was doing during our session. She was also gentle and mindful of how I felt through the session.

I highly recommended her services. She also gave me after-care advice after the full body wax. I will definitely be using her services again.

Thanks Vivian for the service! You were very gentle. Being my first time, the pain was very manageable.

I was planning to do just the bikini wax, I ended up doing my underarms and eyebrows! I highly recommend her 100%

Waxing FAQ

  1. How painful is pubic zone waxing?

    Majority of our clients say using sugar paste is fairly painless. The pain level varies by person and depends on several factors including your menstrual cycle.

    Regardless, when done by a professional, you should never feel any burning or excruciating pain.

    Read our post on preparing for your appointment with tips for a more pleasant and less painful waxing experience.

  2. How is waxing done?

    Application of sugar waxing on the brows and removal with a strip

    We apply soft warm sugar paste (sugar waxing) to the body hair. 
    A paper strip is then applied and pressed firmly adhering to the wax, and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth removing the hair with it from the follicles.

    Check out our blog for more details on steps in a waxing procedure.

  3. What are the benefits of sugar waxing?

    1. Nearly painless
    2. Hair removal from the root
    3. Smooth hair free skin for 4-6+ weeks
    4. Finer & thinner re-growth
    5. No ingrown hairs, cuts, or burns
    6. Suitable for sensitive areas
    7. 100% natural
    8. Allergy free
    9. Exfoliates your skin lightly resulting in smoother skin.

    Read further on the pros and cons of waxing and shaving/creams.

  4. Do you apply numbing cream?

    No, the pain is bearable and only lasts a couple of seconds.

  5. How long does waxing last?

    For beginners, it takes 3-4 weeks, for consistent waxers, it is 5-6 weeks or even more. The more consistently you wax, the less frequent will you need to wax.

  6. What type of wax do you use?

    Essentials for mobile waxing hair removal; wax warmer, sugar wax, talcum powder, strips and coconut oil

    We use warm soft sugar wax with strips; called sugar waxing.

    Sugar wax is made of sugar, lemon, and water and is hence safe even for the most sensitive skin.

  7. How is hair removal with sugar paste less painful than other types of wax?

    The sugar paste only sticks to the hair and not the skin. By pulling only the hair, you feel less pain and are less irritated.

  8. Why do you prefer soft sugar wax?

    Sugar wax dripping from a spatula

    Because;
    1. soft sugar wax requires less preparation before application,
    2. it’s versatile; easy to use in big areas like legs and small areas like the bikini.
    3. We feel more comfortable using a spatula rather than fingers to apply the paste. (The ball of hard sugar wax is applied using fingers)

  9. Why should the hair be 1/4 inch(1.5 cm) long?

    Wax can’t adhere to the hair when it is too short. In an attempt to grab all the hairs, the therapist goes over the same area more times making the area more irritated. And at the end, you still remain with some hair.

    If not sure of how long 1/4 inch (length of rice grain) is, just don’t trim it and communicate to your esthetician that you might need a trim before the waxing.

  10. Do you bring the waxing table?

    Yes, we bring a waxing table where the procedure is done. We also bring disposable sheets and all other necessary materials. We only need access to electrical contact to warm the wax.

  11. Is the waxing attendant female?

    Vivian Nyaga, a mobile waxing hair removal professional with Viv's in-Houz spa in Nairobi

    Yes, our waxing professionals are female. We only wax ladies.

  12. I have cuts and wounds from shaving, can I wax?

    No. I advise letting the wounds heal first before the procedure.

  13. Does full-body wax include the face?

    Yes, full-body waxing is from the face to the toes.

  14. How long after the Caesarian section should I wait before Brazilian waxing?

    I recommend 6 months to let the wound heal. Of course, some people heal faster than others.

  15. I have rashes from shaving, does waxing cause rashes?

    From personal experience and of most clients, waxing does not cause rashes. Some clients react to factory-produced sugar paste and for such clients, I cook the sugar paste afresh.

  16. Do you wax gents?

    No, we do not offer waxing services to men.

  17. I am pregnant, can I wax?

    Yes, waxing is perfectly safe during pregnancy.

    Due to pregnancy hormones, some ladies say they are more sensitive to pain, so it can be a little more uncomfortable.

  18. How soon can I have an appointment?

    We work with advance bookings; 1-60 days from today.

    You have more slots 1-2 weeks ahead if you combine services from different professionals in one appointment.
