Summer Beauty: Hair Removal 101

With summer around the bend, it’s time to start thinking about reinstating your warm weather beauty routine. Making a regular habit out of certain beauty regiments, like waxing with your esthetician, will help you see the best results possible.


One question we hear often at Montage Salon & Spa is, “How long will my waxing last?”


While waxing can last up to six weeks, you can see re-growth much sooner than that. Why? Hair grows in a 3 phase cycle: growing, resting, and transitional. The vast majority of hair follicles are in the growing phase at any given time … but not all. This means there is likely some hair beneath the skin that either hasn’t reached the surface yet OR isn’t long enough to be grasped at the time of your waxing. As a result, some hair isn’t removed from the root and will appear days or weeks after your appointment.


Happily, there is a solution! Waxing every 3-4 weeks a few times after your first appointment will help ensure all hair is removed and you’ll be able to go longer between visits.
