The University of Southern Queensland found that facial hair can block up to 95% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Which means beards can go a long way in protecting you from things like basal-cell carcinomas. (Cancer). Not to mention, also help prevent visible signs of ageing around your face, head and neck.

1. GROW IT OUT: 4 Weeks of outgrowth is recommended. That means no shaving, "NAIRing" or trimming!
2. EXFOLIATE: Exfoliate with a sugar scrub (preferably Butterscotch Baby Glow Exfoliant) for a few days prior to your appointment. Exfoliating loosens the hair from the follicle and thereby making the waxing release easier.
3. PAIN MANAGEMENT: Take an Ibuprofen 1 hr. prior to your appointment.
4. GRANNY PANTIES: Wear big, comfortable undies. Your skin may be sensitive after and cotton bloomers may be more welcome than a small piece of lace.
5. WIPE IT DOWN: Use a feminine wipe upon arrival. Be sure to remove excess oils and fluids.
6. RELAX: I do this all day, every day and I'm really good at it. Relax, you're in good hands.

While fruit-infused water may seem like a small part of the spa experience, it provides big health benefits. Essential to life, water delivers oxygen to cells, flushes toxins from the body, and may help to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Getting ready for a fabulous weekend?! Don't forget to schedule your appointment with one of our lash techs: Ina or Tod'Tiana!
Here's a lil' glam tip for you... just so you can be sure it's ok to add a little color to your lid WITH your luxurious lash look:
Yes, you can wear makeup with them.If you can't stand the thought of ditching your smoky eye, don't worry, you don't have to. Only liquid-based eye products can be damaging to the extensions, but you can get away with a tiny wing of liquid liner as long as you're not dragging it along the lash line. Make sure to carefully remove the shadow or liner with oil-free makeup remover and Q-tips for precision. Most importantly, stay away from mascara entirely as it leaves the extensions crusty and damaged. It's only acceptable if you're at the end of your cycle and will be getting a fresh set in a few days.
Lena Says: OIL SHEEN is used to add shine, NOT moisture. If you are looking for your hair to be soft and nurished, make sure to use a MOISTURIZER.
I suggest: Butterscotch Baby Hair Lotion. Also, to treat dry scalp, use Butterscotch Baby Scalp S.O.S.
You'll thank me later!
