Bare Essentials Wax Studio - FAQs

Whether you are going all in with a Brazilian bikini wax or just getting your eyebrows touched up, it is important that you choose an experienced esthetician at a reputable establishment for your hair removal needs. These are some of your most delicate areas and the face you show the world everyday. Why would you trust your skin to just anyone? Waxing is definitely our expertise. Barbara is highly-trained and bring years of experience to the table. Our goal is to make every client not only happy with their service, but with the experience as well. Let's face it- when it comes to waxing, it's the destination, not the journey! We do everything we can to make waxing as pleasant as possible!

If your questions are not answered below or you would like to speak with Barbara before scheduling your appointment, please do not hesitate to call and leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.

NEW TO HAIR REMOVAL?

So, What really is a Brazilian wax? Well, a Brazilian wax is complete removal of all your hair down south. ALL OF IT! Which includes the labia and in between the cheeks. However you do have an option to leave some hair at the top. If you feel the Brazilian wax is not quite your cup of tea, try out our traditional Bikini Line or Full Bikini wax.

How long does a Brazilian waxing take?

The process is usually about 20 minutes, but just depends on how much hair needs to be removed.

Have any Questions?

Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker, darker, or heavier?

No, it will not. Waxing removes hair by the root, often weakening the root in the process. Therefore, if anything, waxing may make the hair finer and softer with repeated regular waxing.

How long do I need to let my hair grow?

You must let your hair grow in for at least 2-3 weeks if you have shaved in order to get a good wax. This should be about a half an inch, compare it to the length of your eyebrow hairs. If you can pull on it with your fingers, it is probably long enough.

I have a special occasion planned and want to get waxed for the first time! Are there any special instructions?
Yes! If you are waxing for the first time for a special event or occasion, we strongly recommend scheduling the same service 4-8 weeks PRIOR to make sure that you have no adverse reactions and to ensure that you have the best results possible.

Can I tan after my waxing?

We recommend that you do not tan before or at least 24 hours after. Also, don't come in with a fresh spray tan because waxing will exfoliate your tan right off! It is best to wait 24 hours after waxing before getting a spray tan.

How long does waxing last?

Waxing may last 2 to 3 weeks. The more you do it, the longer it will last. We recommend absolutely NO SHAVING in that area between waxes. Shaving traumatizes the hair follicle and creates redness and ingrown hairs.

How often should I have waxing done?

We recommend every 3-4 weeks for body services. Eyebrows can vary from every 2-6 weeks depending on the fullness and rate of growth.

I am on my cycle can I still get waxed?

Yes. If you are on your cycle just wear a tampon and be prepared for a to be a little more sensitive than usual. Same goes for a few days before you cycle as well.

If I am pregnant can I still get waxed?

Yes. You may be a little more sensitive than usual, but we regularly wax mothers-to-be up to a week before their due date!

Does it hurt?

It hurts more the first time than any other time because we are pulling out 100% of the hair, your nerves are on edge and you don't know what to expect. You will experience a quick temporary sting that stops hurting right away. By far the worst part for most people is the anticipation, not the actual removal. Follow all the tips we give you and you will be fine. You second time will be so much EASIER!

The pain associated with waxing is highly sensationalized and can be a barrier for some. Of course we are sensitive to this and do everything we can to minimize your discomfort. We recommend avoiding caffeine prior to your visit, and scheduling around your menstrual cycle, as both of these can make you more sensitive.

What is the normal skin reaction to waxing?

It is normal for your skin to show some redness after waxing. Some skin is more sensitive than others and reactions may range from no redness at all to very red. The first time you wax an area, or if it has been awhile since your last waxing, you will probably experience some redness and sensitivity afterwards. This usually subsides within a few hours, or for very sensitive skin within 24 hours.

MEDICAL INFO

Can medication affect waxing?

Yes! You CANNOT be waxed if you are taking any antibiotics, Accutane, Differin, or Retin A, or retinol products. Additionally, any medications that include sun sensitivity on the list of side effects will preclude you from getting waxed. Accutane users must wait a full year before waxing. A good rule of thumb is that if you are using a prescription from a dermatologist, you should check with them prior to any waxing or skin service.

All of these products thin out and weaken your skin making you more sensitive and likely to burn or peel. You should wait 2-6 weeks depending on how long you have been on the medication before you wax as we want to make sure the medication is out of your system so you have the best waxing experience possible. If you are not sure of how you may react from any medication you are taking, please give us a call beforehand so we can help you determine if you are able to get waxed.

Brazilian Wax for Men in Raleigh, Male Waxing Salons

As a guy, I was hesitant about doing a Male Brazilian wax. I thought I would find a salon full of women wondering what I'm doing there.
The salon was beautifully professional, clean, comfortable and client focused. Any fear I had was gone. Barbara, was awesome. She is highly professional, knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. Her knowledge about skin care and products was great.
I have to say, as a straight guy that wants to keep neat, clean and worries that us guys don't do such things - grow up, give this place a try. My wife was glad I did - and so am I.
Thanks Barbara, you're amazing!!!

by Jamie D. - Raleigh on Bare Essentials Wax Studio
Male Hair Waxing in Raleigh - Guys wax too....

As a guy I thought this was going to be awkward - so far from the truth. What an awesome experience! Barbara is professional, personable and makes you feel comfortable because she cares about her customers. Her studio is upscale, spotless and makes you feel relaxed.
So - as a guy getting waxed - I'm going to be a regular customer.

Hair Waxing in Raleigh, NC

I've been going to Barbara for years - she is very talented and incredibly professional. I really like her studio; it is super private with easy parking. Lately, I've been buying some of her products. I enjoy the goat milk soap the best because it is great for dry winter skin. I recommend bare essentials to anyone looking for a quiet, private place in a relaxed environment.

Addicted - Hair waxing while pregnant

I always did my own wax, but after reaching a certain point in my pregnancy, there was no way I could do it. So, I went to Barbara, and it was so easy and she did a perfect job! I could NEVER do my own wax that good, and I was instantly spoiled. It’s just too easy going to her. Even though I can do it myself, I’d rather just go to her from now on.

Best Brazilian experience yet!

Barbara was great! I made a last-minute appointment and she was on time, down to the minute. She is very pleasant and put me at ease throughout the entire process. I am a very modest person but not once did I feel awkward or uncomfortable, or even much aware of my undress. Her strokes are effective but very gentle compared to all other waxes I've had before. I was in and out for a well-done full Brazilian in 25 minutes. I would highly recommend her!

Bikini Waxing Salons in Raleigh, Durham, Wake Forest - Melissa Kerkau

Barbara is hands down the best. She's super friendly, always punctual and her salon is beautiful and spotless. I was formerly her client at another salon and was extremely happy when I found out she had opened her own shop. I live in Durham and drive by many other places I could get waxed on my way to my appointments, but it doesn't matter because she is worth going out of my way to see. I also love that I get to tame my wild hairs and support a local small business owner at the same time. Win-Win!Sara FSara F

I've been going to Barbra for over a year now and there's more than one reason for it! She's professional, friendly, efficient and always thorough! She makes every appointment comfortable and I can't imagine having to go to anyone else! Once you come here you won't want to go to anyone else!

I'm a recent college graduate and I finally have a decent enough job to afford to go to a professional bikini waxing studio. Yah! I have been going to Barbara at her hair wax studio for about 4 months now. She is amazing. This is so much better than trying to do it myself. I'm going to the beach next week so I finally get to show off some new bikinis I just bought. So great not to have to worry about shaving!

I just recently moved to Raleigh over by Creedmore & Millbrook road and was dreaded finding a new bikini waxing salon. A woman's bikini waxer is like man's barber. It is a very close personal relationship. Luckily a coworker recommend Barbara's company, Bare Essentials Wax Studio off Six Forks road. She is very personable and you get to know each other really fast - not awkward at all! I will definitely be going to her for all my bikini waxes for as long as I'm living in Raleigh. Thanks Barbara!

I moved to Raleigh in 2010 and as we women know the first thing you have to do is find new wax services. Barbara was the first person I scheduled an appointment with. She made me feel comfortable, she is professional and very knowledge about all skincare. Brazilian, legs, underarms, eye brows, I have had it all waxed by her. Needless to say, 6 years later I look forward to my monthly appointment with her.

Brazilian Waxing Services in Raleigh

Whether you’re a virgin to the Brazilian wax process or a pro who’s been in the game for a while, I highly recommend Barbara and Bare Essentials to all. She’s such a spunky professional with the magic touch when it comes to all things wax!I was so excited when I found Barbara’s new shop, Bare Essentials. I nearly had a heart attack when I called the former wax center in Brier Creek and found that Barbara was no longer there. I have been traveling from DC to Raleigh to be waxed by Barbara for nearly two years. After 20 minutes of google searching to try to find the best esthetician I know, I finally realized that I could find her as a licensed esthetician, and VOILA…I found Bare Essentials…oh the JOY!!!I found Barbara just before my wedding, and she did my first Brazilian wax. As the ultimate professional, I was also surprised that Barbara’s technique was relatively painless and quick. After my first experience, I was sold and would continue to visit Barbara whenever I visited home. I’m so ecstatic that I found Barbara and I’m even more proud that she now has her own business. I walked away from my first experience in her new spot today as usual - a happy customer and I’ve already made my Christmas appointment. Barbara mentioned that everyone loves the new wax she uses and I agree! It seemed even more painless than my previous experiences. Did I mention I was happy to have found Barbara? 

North Raleigh Hair Waxing Salons

I've received wax services at salons and at places that are there for the sole purpose of waxing but none of them can beat the service at Bare Essentials Wax Studio. The studio is locally-owned and run by Barbara Calise, a licensed esthetician who gives me perfect eyebrows, with almost no discomfort, every single time. Whatever wax she is using nowadays is even better than before...and it was fairly painless before! The studio is small, but quite lovely and inviting...very comfortable. Barbara is very personable but is also professional and very careful when waxing. I've never left thinking she took too much off! Prices are reasonable and on par with everywhere else you can get waxed, but the cost is more than worth it for the exceptional service and pleasant interaction.Just a logistical note:The first time I went there, it was in the dark and I had a hard time finding the building. The door to her office suite faces Six Forks Rd (just a couple of blocks south from Whole Foods) and is at the Six Forks St level. You have to enter the office park driveway, drive down just past the median, and make a u-turn to get back to her suite. In the daylight, this probably seems obvious!
