How long waxing lasts is probably the number one question that we are asked (aside from does it hurt). One of the most delightful benefits of routinely waxing is that you do not need to remove hair everyday. You stay smooth for a long time, which is reason enough to drop that razor!

Body waxing lasts anywhere from 3-6 weeks, depending on your hair and the growth cycles. A good rule of thumb is 4 weeks. At Urban Waxx we recommend 4 weeks for the first follow up wax. At that appointment we will determine if 4 weeks is the best timeline or if it would be a benefit to wait a few weeks extra.

There are so many factors that determine the length of time between waxes. Your age, hormone levels and genetics all play a part in how quickly your hair goes through the hair growth cycle.

Another fantastic side effect of waxing: with consistent waxing, the length of time between treatments will increase. The more you wax, the weaker the hair follicle becomes, making it easier to remove hair. Hair comes in thinner and sparser. As a result of consistently waxing over time, you’ll begin to see longer periods of silky smooth skin between sessions.

Keep in mind, hair on different parts of your body may grow at different rates. The hair on your legs may grow back much more slowly than the hair under your arms, for example.

If you are looking ahead to get smooth for Spring Break or summer, there is no time like the present to get on schedule! By the time warm weather is here, you will be beach ready!
