Not all waxing experiences are the same

“The most pain free wax I've ever had.”

I've been getting waxed for quite a few years and when Sassy Minx started offering waxing I decided to combine all my beauty services with my nail appointments. Not only is it convenient but I was SOOOOO impressed with the efficiency and technique used. There were no missed spots and I didn't have to ask for down below to be done. I can't believe how mild the pain was either.

Pre Wax Preperation

To achieve to best results we need the perfect canvas. 

Please ensure your hair growth is a minimum of 1 cm for best results.

In the week prior to your appointment we highly recommend you begin exfoliating and moisturising your skin. As well hydrated skin will help create a painless experience for you.


We recommend our exfoliating mitt $14.95 & Super Hydrating Body Butter ($9.95) ($17 when purchased together)

Day Of Appointment

The morning of your appointment please give yourself a light exfoliation again and please DO NOT moisturise as it may leave a coating on your skin. 

Where possible please shower at least 1 hour prior to your appointment as the warm water will open up your hair follicles making the hair easier to remove.

Appointment Time

If this is your first waxing experience please let our team know so we can ensure you feel comfortable and know what to expect.

At Sassy Minx we know everybody is different, which is why we have our own, in salon techniques for all body shapes.

Common Questions Answered 👇🏻

Some degree of uncomfortability is expected as you are having the hair removed from the root. 

This can be eased by taking a panadole 30 minutes prior to your appointment or if you are really concerned the chemist stock Emla a numbing cream (apply 30 minutes prior and notify your waxing professional)

We also offer everyone the option to use the numbing spray we do have in-store for your convenience.


Many can’t believe just how little pain they experienced and often wonder why they put it off for so long. 

In order to effectively remove the hairs they need to be 1 cm long. We recommend not shaving for 3 weeks before your first waxing appointment (scary we know, but it will be totally worth it)

Ingrown hairs are cause by hair being trapped by the skin when they begin to grow back. The best  way to avoid them is to exfoliate before your appointment and weekly thereafter. The use of ingrown hair removal products can also be beneficial.

In short No. We do not recommend waxing whilst on your period as you may experience higher pain response due to the amount of hormonal activity in the body at that time.

Where possible it is always recommended to have a warm shower before your waxing appointment as it opens up the hair follicle and also leaves you feeling fresh and clean. 

At your appointment you will also be provided with a personal wipe to freshen up if you can not shower directly beforehand. 

For your first appointment we recommend you wear loose fitting clothing as you may be a little sensitive for the first 10 minutes after waxing.

During your waxing appointment you can wear whatever you are comfortable in (own underwear, disposable g string or nude).

If you have been shaving prior to your first time waxing you can expect the hairs to begin growing back within the first 3 weeks, to reset your hair growth pattern this will be a process. It is recommended that you book your follow up appointment 4 weeks after your first. Your hair will begin to change after your very first appointment, growing softer and less in areas. 

After your third visit most guests drop back to 6 weekly appointments as they see massive results so quickly.

Unfortunately we don’t.
