Counting down the days, with blog 7 of our Christmas health and beauty articles – this time around giving the round up on that sometimes white elephant in the room… Waxing.

Those of you who are regular waxer’s with LHB should know by now that waxing is for life – not just for Christmas! Regardless of the outside temperature, our hair will keep growing whatever the weather!

LHB: Waxing

If you’re not one of regular waxing clients – then read on for why we consider ourselves to be the best that Brighton has to offer for this specialist hair removal technique.

Here at LHB all our therapists have a minimum 5 years’ waxing experience, using both the ‘Clean & Easy’ waxing system and ‘Hot Wax’ (for sensitive areas).


We not only deliver the treatment to exceptional standards, but also ensure that all clients are fully armed with LHB waxing guidelines…

Pre Wax:

  • Ensure that hair is minimum of 1\2 cm long to achieve best results
  • Wear loose underwear for intimate waxing and loose clothing for all other areas
  • Exfoliate prior to a wax to lift and remove any in-growing hairs

Immediate after care:

  • Keep the area clean and dry
  • Wear loose clothing
  • Ensure you are not exposed to high levels of heat
  • Avoid showering for 24hrs post treatment
  • Do not apply perfumed lotions to the treated area

Post Wax:

  • Avoid heat treatments for 24 – 48 hours (sauna – steam – gym – baths – sunbeds)
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing
  • Avoid making contact with the treated area
  • Exfoliate after one week of your treatment and continue to do so once a week to minimise in-growing hairs.
  • Re-book your next waxing Brighton treatment for every 4-6 weeks to help your hair cycle to establish its regular pattern (Approximately four treatments will ensure your hair growth runs to its natural cycle and will in turn provide optimum waxing results).

LHB will always use talcum powder as a barrier for waxing treatments (even for eyebrows) and will always heat test wax prior to application.

If you are a newby to waxing – then check out the following benefits as to why this is such a must have in your beauty regime…

The smoothest silkiest skin…

Waxing removes hair from the root, so it takes a longer time for hair to grow again- anywhere from 3-8 weeks, depending on the individual speed of hair growth. This means your hair free, smooth skin lasts much longer…

No damage to skin…

Unlike alternative methods of hair removal such as hair-removal creams and shaving, waxing doesn’t cause cuts, pigmentation, or badly smelling skin. No harsh chemicals are present in wax, so, the skin is saved from any damaging effect.

Fine and Soft hair…

Your hair that grows post waxing is a finer and softer, not rough and hard such as following shaving. Also, waxing will not cause any stubble that you’ll see just one day after shaving!

Double Function of Hair Removal and Exfoliation…

Waxing leaves your skin soft, smooth and rejuvenated due to it also removing a layer of dead cells from the surface of your skin. This means a double win of skin exfoliation in addition to hair removal…!

Convinced yet – you should be! Call us today for your waxing consultation, and let LHB get you on the road to the smoothest sexiest you ever…
