Spring is in the air (thank heavens) and it’s time to up our spring grooming game (read: it’s time to defuzz our bods). Oh yeah, ladies, it’s time to come out of our winter hibernation and get our spring grooming into gear. We’re talking all things hair here…
The Mane Game
If you’re looking to get out of that winter funk, maybe a fancy haircut is what you need to welcome your body to spring. Read our Top Spring/Summer Hairstyles for 2014 for some serious hair envy and inspiration.
Let’s not shy away from talking about body hair. We all have it, and spring is the perfect time to rid ourselves of it. From our arms to our legs and everything in between (*ahem*), let the defuzzing begin. If you’re new to waxing, fear not because we got some tips from our friends at a favourite waxing salon, The Ten Spot (they’ve been keeping Toronto smooth and fuzz-free for years!).
Here are some of their top secret tips to help your waxing process…
- Exfoliate! We are big fans of exfoliating. It’s the best way to avoid ingrown hairs. It’s best to exfoliate a couple days prior to your waxing appointment to prep your skin. The Ten Spot carries its own line of body scrubs called Get Nailed. (Insider tip: their Spiced PEARfection is amazing.)
- Moisturize! Keeping hydrated and moisturizing is key for waxing clients. If your skin is too dry you run the risk of your skin stripping or becoming irritated and no one wants that. The Ten Spot’s Get Nailed line also has moisturizers to match their scrubs.
- Stay Calm! We know waxing your bikini line or getting a Brazilly can be a little intimidating. Our best advice is to take a couple Tylenol about 20 minutes prior to your appointment to help with the pain. And remember, the more you wax the less you feel it. The Ten Spot also sells Numb It! cream in store.
This season, brows are in – the bigger, the better! The key to a badass pair of brows is to keep them kempt and groomed. We recommend talking to your go-to brow lady before any drastic shaping or waxing. She’ll be able to groom your brows so that they grow into your desired shape. This spring, dare to be bold!
