LUNCHBOXWAX FRANCHISE OWNER SHAHAYLA EBERHARD ANSWERS THE SINGLE-MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION ABOUT BODY WAXING Debunking the Hurt Hype Here, this expert esthetician clears the air for Sun Valley Source on the most common question: Does waxing hurt? This is the most common question I get. It may come as a surprise the variety of factors that can make a person’s experience tick up or down the comfort scale. For first-timers, we’re removing hair that has never been up-rooted before. They also may feel vulnerable in front of someone they don’t know well. New experiences can cause a little anxiety. Those factors can heighten sensitivity, but here’s the good news: You’re only a first-timer once. After that, it gets easier for you and faster for the waxologist, especially if you choose an esthetician who specializes in waxing. By the third or even second time, it’s quicker and more comfortable. By that time, too, you have minted a relationship with your waxologist, which makes all the nerves disappear. Booking a wax becomes as easy as ordering a coffee. It’s routine. Does waxing hurt more for men than women? I think what I mentioned before is at play here. As more men make hair and skincare regimens a priority, body waxing for men becomes less taboo. The more mainstream male waxing becomes, the less we hear men being fearful of the discomfort. By the way, I wish Steve Carell would book a wax at LunchboxWax. That scene from “The 40-Year-Old-Virgin” breaks my heart. I hope he knows a proper chest wax isn’t traumatizing. MORE QUESTIONS? lunchboxwax.com/faqs People with fair skin and red hair tend to be more tender. Women who are pregnant also may be more sensitive. Different areas of the body may be more sensitive but varies from person to person. I have guests who don’t feel a thing during a leg wax, for example, but others who say they can. So, lots of factors matter, but none of them are insurmountable. The fear gets more attention than it deserves. Our LunchboxWax speed-waxing technique gets our guests right where we want them to be – feeling beautiful. 680 Sun Valley Rd., Ketchum Next to Les Saisons 208-720-0000 lunchboxwax.com Body waxing has been around hundreds of years, but even so, people still have questions about the skin-smoothing process.
