Last week we talked to Nicky(me) about stress and hair (you win some and you lose some). Today we are talking with Shelly Winters (our Eyelash Extension Expert and Licensed Cosmetologist and if you've never tried one of Shelly's blowouts-you are really missing out!) and Randi Menard(Our General Manager and Licensed Esthetician who has quickly become our Waxpert-she's getting us to grow our hair under our arms so she can wax them off and even got me to wax my inner nose!) It's true and there's a Facebook video to prove it, lol.
Today we are going to be talking about just that...getting your hair to become more luxurious and removing the unwanted via waxing.
Let's Get Down to Brass Waxing:
There are so many reasons that we want to do this, but find that we either don't want to take the time out to grow the hair long enough (a temporary challenge), scared that it's going to hurt, it's embarrassing or some other personal reason. This piece may or may not answer our challenges, but hopefully it can shed a little light as to why we want to do this over shaving. The first thing you need to know is that the hair needs to be about 1/4 of an inch in length (which is about a long grain of rice). My experience has been that the first few days I had to tell myself "DON'T SHAVE UNDER YOUR ARMS TODAY", which meant that I couldn't be distracted during my morning routine, once I overcame the first couple of days I don't even really notice it there anymore and a week later I'm just about ready for the wax. By focusing on the benefits it has helped me stay on track and focused on my mission: I do not have to shave, it's one of the best ways to exfoliate that I can get and that is also preventing skin irritations. Besides Underarms and Noses, Randi also offers Full Body, Lip, Legs, Bikini, Arms, and Eyebrows. In fact one of her clients had this to say about her eyebrows,
"I have a difficult set of eyebrows that are thick and grow in different angles and directions. Since I started going to Randi @ La Palmera Spa, she has done an awesome job in fixing and shaping them how I want to look. I am super happy with my experience @ La Palmera Spa and will continue to go to her to get my eyebrows done." EG.
There are a few times of the month that we are more sensitive than others and that is usually right around your period. If pain is what has kept you away from waxing then we can get you the tips to reducing that pain as much as possible. For the month of March Randi has offered promotions on Waxing Wednesday for you to give it a whirl. Call Guest Services @ 337-740-7422 to get your waxing questions answered. We can't wait to help you have soft skin and save you time on a day-to-day basis.
Now on to Hair that you want to keep and have it look & feel luxuriously.
Shelly has this to say about our hair. "The most common issues/questions I'm asked about hair is Split Ends, Adding to Volume at the top, hair colors and box jobs."
You really should get a blowout with Shelly and see just how luxurious your hair feels. A blowout is simply a wash and blowdry/style using your expertise. You can schedule your appointment with her by calling Guest Services as well and that number is 337-740-7422. Here's what one of Shelly's Clients, Betty Vining, had to say about her experience,
