So, You Can't Get Waxed — Here's What You Should Do Instead
If waxing is your hair removal process of choice, it'll likely be a while before you're able to see an aesthetician for a follow-up appointment due to the temporary closures of salons and spas across the country. Of course, if you're due (or overdue) for an appointment with your beautician, you have options. You can either grow your hair out and let it do its thing, you can shave, or you can try waxing at home.
The more practical thing to do may be the former, since experts say waxing after a shave is definitely the most painful, but it's understandable why that might sound less than exciting. If you're concerned about what to do now that you can't get waxed, we spoke to Gina Petak, European Wax Center's education manager, about the steps to take — and, more importantly, to avoid — while you're in between appointments.
