Wax Oasis is a specialist Waxing Salon in Watford, and were ready to bring out your good looks. Trained by the ‘Queen of Wax’ Kim Lawless, you can be assured of an exceptional service, high standards and absolutely no ‘double-dipping’.
At Wax Oasis we specialise in the use of hot wax for facial and intimate waxing, also known as non-strip wax or peelable wax. Hot is much more comfortable and kinder to delicate areas than strip wax, as it adheres only to the hair, and not the skin. Strip wax is suitable for treating larger areas of skin such as legs and arms.
We use only the highest quality wax and aftercare products including Perron Rigot pre and post waxing range, ensuring that your treatments is to the highest of standards and minimising any discomfort often associated with waxing.
At Wax Oasis we have a strict ‘no double dipping’ policy for all waxing. This means that we will never re-dip a used spatula back into our wax pots after application to the skin. Stop by Wax Oasis and check out what our staff of professional experts have to offer!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long should I leave for my hair to grow?
Make sure your hair is long enough to remove completely from the roots – it should be at least 1 centimetre. If you’ve shaved the area within the last few weeks it might take a couple of waxes to get your hair into a cycle of growth that allows the most effective wax finish. Also, don’t feel like you have to rm before coming in – we’ll do that for you as we can keep an eye on the hair length.
Am I allowed to keep my underwear on when being waxed?
It is fine to leave your underwear on for the basic bikini wax but for any other type of initmate waxing it is necessary to remove your underwear as it makes it really difficult to get a clean finish and takes so much longer.
How can I prevent being embarrassed?
It’s natural to feel slightly embarrassed at the thought of dropping your pants for a stranger, you just need to remember we are professionals. We see more genitals than the average person would care to think about. We are only looking at the hair that is to be removed, then removing it.
Will I bleed?
At times you will notice little blood spotting on the skin, this means the hair has been pulled out properly from the root. They will not continue to bleed after your treatment.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for my wax?
- You should try to exfoliate and moisturise your skin in the area to be waxed for a couple of days before your appointment, which will help you get the best results from your wax. If you don’t regularly exfoliate the area to be waxed, you’re likely to have a lot of dead skin there which will be trapping hairs underneath it. By exfoliating and removing the dead skin, you’ll be releasing those hairs, which we can then wax (we obviously cannot remove any hairs that are still below the surface of the skin). Otherwise, you’re likely to see some regrowth quite quickly after your appointment.
- It’s really important to mositurise regularly too, to keep the skin supple. For the same reasons as above, we want to avoid dry, flaky skin in the area to be waxed.
- If you’re having an intimate wax, then consider which products you’re going to use to exfoliate and moisturise the area beforehand! You need a gentle exfoliator, preferably unperfumed, that’s not goimg to scratch the skin or irritate the area. Likewise, with moisturiser – choose an unfragranced gentle one, which is not going to irritate or sting!
- Please do have a shower on the day of your wax to ensure that you’re clean and fresh when we see you. Don’t heavily apply any cream to the area to be waxed on the day of your appointment though.
Is there anything I can’t do immediately after being waxed?
You’ve just invested time, money and a little discomfort in order to be hair free – so it makes sense to look after it!
Immediately after your wax:
It’s normal immediately after your wax for a little redness and a prickly heat type rash to appear. This should subside after a few hours and is normally due to a histamine reaction. Because waxing removes the hair at the root, it’s important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free. This means: – No sunbathing for at least 12 hours (have your waxing done at least the day BEFORE you go on holiday)
- No swimming in a chlorinated pool for 24 hours
- Same for spa baths or saunas
- Avoid applying any topical lotions for at least 12 hours (fragrances and other lubricants can cause a burning sensation)
- Also avoid touching the waxed area to ensure it remains bacteria free – Use a tea tree oil based product to apply to the area for it’s anti-bacterial qualities.
How often will I need to get it done?
It varies, if you’re a first-time or occasional waxer you will likely notice some new hair growth within 2-3 weeks due to the naturally staggered hair growth cycle. This part of regrowth will be sparse, about one-third of the hair normally present. Soon after the remaining hair will begin growing in.
Regular waxing will leave the area hair free for 3-6 weeks. Over time the density of hair in the waxed area may start to decrease as well.
Are there any reasons that may prevent me from being waxed?
Certain medications and conditions, such as the use of steroids or steroid creams, acne medication, including Retin-A, Renova, Differin and Isotretinoin. Also diabetes, varicose veins, poor circulation, contagious skin conditions, sore or open wounds and recent scar tissue may limit or prevent waxing treatments. Please ensure that you provide us with accurate information of any medications or conditions during your consultation. This list is not exhaustive, if you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us.
