Facial Hair Waxing

Facial hair’s a thing… some you may love, and some you may not. But the good news is, we all have it, so you’re in solid company.

House of Beauty offers facial waxing services for women and men. Let one of our therapists help you remove, shape or groom your facial hair so that it suits that amazing face of yours.

Reasons You'll Love Facial Waxing

1. Because smooth is better

When the hair is removed at the root instead of cut from the surface, it grows back in smoothly, meaning you’ll be stubble-free. Smoother skin also makes for a more flawless makeup application.

2. Because it won't break the bank

It’s affordable! Since the face is such a small surface area, less wax is needed, so it’s less expensive than waxing larger parts of the body.

3. Because you’ll grow less hair

Think of it as training your hair. The more you wax, the less it grows over time. How great is that?

4. Long lasting results

You’ll get about 2-3 weeks’ worth of results from a facial wax — a lot longer than other removal methods.

Types

Chin

Generally, chin hair is thicker and has stronger roots, which makes waxing a smart choice. While there are other methods for removing chin hair, waxing is especially beneficial here.

Ear

As you might imagine, ears can be difficult to wax on your own! If you find yourself in need of ear hair removal, professional facial waxing is one of your very best options.
Purple lip waxing icon

Lip

The more you wax, the less painful it becomes. That hard-to-reach hair around the mouth is no match for our therapists.

Sides of Face

Both women and men have sideburns, but having dark or thick sideburns might make you feel self-conscious. Ditto for having an uneven hairline. Waxing the sides of your face will give you that perfect, clean line.

Cheek

Because cheek hair is fine and light, it can be difficult to remove. Facial waxing can help get every last pesky bit of facial fuzz. In fact, the more often you wax these areas, the finer that hair will come in time after time.

Neck

Some women are surprised to find hairs big and small along their neck. These unwanted stragglers on the front, sides, and back are easily taken care of with facial waxing.
Purple nose waxing icon

Nose

Ah, nose hairs. They serve a purpose but are a no-go when they can get long and unruly. Our therapist will focus on waxing the outer edge of your nostrils (similarly to how you’d use hair trimmers). Because the nose is so sensitive, it’s important to let a professional therapist wax this area.

Eyebrows

It’s all about the eyebrows! Our therapists are pros at helping to shape the perfect brow for both men and women. Check out our full page on all things eyebrow waxing to learn more.

What to Expect

An appointment with one of our therapists will help you determine exactly where you should remove any pesky little hairs from your face.

If it’s your first facial waxing, it’s important to know what to expect prior to your appointment.

Hair is totally normal

Don’t be embarrassed. We all have unwanted hair or peach fuzz on our face. We’ll help you strut out and feel confident in your own skin.

A slight ouch

Although a little discomfort is completely normal during your first time facial waxing, it’ll hurt less and less each time you visit.

A little redness

Just like any area that you wax, the surrounding skin may be a little red after your service. If you’ve got a big event, plan your wax about three days before (just to be safe!)

Some sensitivity

Because the skin on your face can be more sensitive than other areas, you may notice some slight sensitivity after your service. If you feel extremely sensitive after a face wax, consult one of our therapists.

Facial Hair Waxing vs. The Rest

When it comes to removing unwanted hair, you’ve got a lot of options. See how waxing compares to other hair removal techniques so that you can make an informed decision that works the best for you!

Waxing vs. ....

Threading
Threading uses a cotton thread to remove short rows of hair from your face. Since each hair is removed individually, it can be a more painful and uncomfortable experience than face waxing.
Our trained therapists use the highest quality wax which can be used on even the most sensitive skin types.
Tweezing
Tweezing is a slower and more painful experience than waxing. Results don't last as long and it's easy to miss or break smaller hairs — pinching yourself in the process. And some women opt to use an epilator to tweeze hair from the roots more quickly, but this method is well-known for being painful.
For touch-ups, manual tweezers are the best way to take care of any stray hairs and can be used in between facial waxing services to keep your face silky and smooth.
Depilatory Creams
Depilatory creams use chemicals to weaken the hair follicles, allowing you to wipe the hair away from your skin. These creams can be used at home but the harsh chemicals can irritate sensitive skin and many of them smell awful! Facial skin is especially delicate, so depilatories may not be a good option.
Shaving
Recently, face shaving for women has picked up some traction in the beauty world as a cheap option for hair removal.
But facial razors won't provide long-lasting results, as smoothness only lasts 1-3 days as opposed to 2-3 weeks with facial waxing. It can also cause you to have embarrassing and prickly stubble in between shaves.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is long lasting, but can be very expensive and requires a number of treatment sessions. There are less expensive at-home options, but those can be potentially dangerous and even cause damage.
Also, laser hair removal isn't recommended for people with darker skin or lighter hair.
Bleaching
Bleaching your unwanted facial hair doesn't remove the hairs; it just makes them lighter so they aren’t as noticeable. This option may work if you don’t have much hair and don’t mind if it's still visible up close.
However, bleaching products can irritate sensitive skin.
Natural Recipes
There are a number of home remedies that claim to get rid of facial hair naturally, but many of these methods are simply old wives’ tales and may not be as effective at removing hair.
Natural recipes may also have negative or harmful effects due to a lack of product testing.

Facial Wax Aftercare

You’ll love how smooth and flawless your new, fuzz-free face will feel when you leave House of Beauty.

We want you to continue to love the results for every day in between appointments, so here are some tips on how to maintain your wax results.

To Keep in Mind

  • Avoid harsh sunlight, sunbathing + tanning beds
  • If you must go in the sun, wear sunscreen
  • Avoid topical face treatments
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated water
  • Avoid profuse sweating
  • Avoid touching the area

How long will your face or brow wax last?

Typically, your wax will last 2-3 weeks before you begin to see any regrowth, but as you wax your face more regularly, the density and amount of hair may decrease.

Aftercare Tips

Avoid Shaving

Be Consistent

Don’t flip-flop between hair removal methods. Once you start waxing for hair removal, stick with only waxing and be consistent about coming in for your appointments. This will help to ensure that your face stays perfectly smooth.
Cleanse Regularly

Keep it Clean

Wash your skin every morning and every night and never go to bed with makeup on. This helps keep your skin healthy and makes regular waxing easier.
Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliate

Use an exfoliator to keep skin smooth in between your facial waxing services. Exfoliating primes the skin for waxing by making it easier for hairs to slide out from their roots, which can create longer lasting results.

You’ll want to avoid exfoliating 24 – 48 hours prior to waxing. We recommend applying a thin layer to clean, dry skin with a circular motion until the exfoliation begins to activate.

Exfoliating helps the skin on your face better absorb your moisturiser and serums, which means they’ll work more effectively. Regular exfoliation reduces your chance of ingrown hairs—great for anyone prone to ingrown hairs on their chin and neck.

Men's Waxing

Do you feel like it’s a constant struggle to keep your beard style perfect? Sounds like you need to come in and see how our therapists can get you groomed in no time!

House of Beauty offers a number of different facial waxing and threading services that men can choose to achieve that perfectly groomed look.
Moisturise Regularly

Hydrate

Apply a good hydrating serum to avoid dry skin between waxes. A high quality serum restores stressed skin while calming irritation and redness. It also defends against free radicals and other skin aging factors, which your skin can be even more susceptible to after waxing.
