Waxing + Tinting Information

Available at our New Albany, DSW Polaris, and DSW Dublin locations.

Best Wax Ever? Here’s Your Guide:
Read these tips before your next appointment.

  • Allow your hair to grow 2 - 3 weeks prior to your service. Hair should measure at least ¼ inch—aka, the length of a grain of rice.
  • Please exfoliate your skin with a natural-based scrub 24 hours before your appointment (psst...try this one here!). This prevents dryness and irritation.
  • Stay hydrated! Avoid caffeine and alcohol for at least 24 hours before your service and be sure to drink plenty of water.
  • Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, please stay away from tanning beds, direct sunlight, swimming or excessive sweating for 24 - 72 hours following your wax service.

 

Safety First! Read This ASAP:
We promise it’ll only take a moment (it’s important!).

The W Nail Bar cannot perform waxing services on skin that is being treated with Accutane, EpiDuo, Differin, Tazorac, Retinol or Retin-A or any other prescribed medications of that strength. To protect the integrity of your skin, you must suspend usage of these medications for at least 6 months prior to waxing.

If you are taking oral or topical antibiotics, please note that sensitivity and/or thinness of skin may occur. Please suspend usage of any antibiotics or over-the-counter low-dosage acne/retinol creams at least 72 hours prior to waxing.

 

The Skinny On Lash + Brow Tinting:
Here’s what to expect...

If you are using our lash and/or brow tinting services, please be aware that the color we use is semi-permanent and can last in the hairs for up to 4 weeks. Keep in mind that color will only cling to skin for the first 24 hours. After this time has passed, you’ll be able to wash it out as you cleanse your face. Please be mindful that over-washing or using oily facial products may cause the tint to dissipate quicker than normal. To ensure a timely lash tint service, please arrive with bare lashes.
