HAIR REMOVAL

Spa on the Hill offers the BEST waxing on Capitol Hill.  Each client is guaranteed a pleasant and hair-free session EVERY visit.  What makes a phenomenal wax experience? We are glad you asked!

  • Prior to your visit, your room is curated to induce a calming, clean, and serene atmosphere. Even our musical playlists can be customized to your specific tastes.
  • Our wax table is capable of being warmed ever so slightly to ensure your comfort during your session. We also have a fan available for clients that tend to sweat and/or prefer a cool climate
  • Your session begins with a consultation to ensure your therapist understands your needs, concerns and goals.
  • Our service protocol includes skin cleansing, a light oil to create a barrier between the wax and skin, which decreases irritation and redness.
  • Our wax studio offers only the most reputable luxury wax brands for each service, which is proven to ease the discomfort of your session and give reliable results.
  • Post treatment instructions and a soothing balm are applied at the conclusion of each service.
  • Everything used is disposable and we do not double dip. Our Sanitation standards are exceptionally high because we want you to feel at ease.
  • Hair length should be around 1/2 inch or 3-4 weeks of growth, whichever is longer. The longer your hair is, the better results and the longer it will last. If your hair is longer, please don’t trim, allow your therapist to do this for you to prevent trimming too short.
  • Pregnant clients can still get waxed! It’s common for moms-to-be to get a Brazilian bikini before giving birth. Please let us know if you are in your 2nd trimester or further along when making the appointment. We will schedule more time to ensure maximum comfort!
  • Contraindications of waxing include if you are in cancer therapy, receiving chemotherapy, or radiation treatment. If you are taking Rx Accutane, Differin, Retin A, Antibiotics, or any medication that may cause sun sensitivity. You should also avoid waxing any areas you are currently or recently used salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, Obagi products, any harsh exfoliants, or any facial peels. All these products thin out your skin and will make you more sensitive and likely to burn or peel. Please wait 2-6 weeks depending on how long you have been on the medication before you wax. We want to make sure the medications are out of your system. If you are not sure of how you may react from any other prescriptions you are taking, please contact your physician.
  • Don’t wear tight panties for the next few days.
  • Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, as this can encourage irritation or small pimples.
  • Don’t take a hot bath for the rest of the day.
  • No tanning beds, saunas or steam rooms for the next two days.
  • Sexual activity should be avoided for at least 24 hours.
  • Three days later use a mild exfoliator on the area to help prevent ingrown.
  • If you get any ingrown hairs try our Ingrown Hair Serum, a huge favorite for getting rid of pesky ingrowns.
