Flirt Urban Salon in Downtown San Diego now offers waxing services by Flutter and Honey, making our salon a one-stop shop for our clients to feel confident from head to toe. If you’ve never tried waxing, or if it’s been a while, check out our six reasons why waxing is better than shaving.

Waxing Helps You Stay Smoother Longer

Waxing lasts longer than shaving because the hair is pulled from the roots rather than being shaved off where it grows out of the skin. When the hair is pulled up from the roots, it takes longer for it to grow back (typically 3-8 weeks), vs shaving which grows back in 1-3 days.

You Can’t Cut Yourself with Waxing

Using a sharp razor puts you at risk of cuts, nicks, and razor burn. It’s hard to feel sexy or confident when you’ve got red bumps or bandaids all over your legs or bikini line. Hair-removal creams can also cause skin irritation. Waxing is chemical-free and won’t leave you with cuts or razor burn, so you can feel confident rocking that new mini dress or bikini on the PB boardwalk.

Ingrown Hairs Are Less Likely with Waxing

Shaving cuts the hair off at skin level, leaving the end of the hair blunt and increasing the risk of it becoming trapped under the skin, causing uncomfortable ingrown hairs. In contrast, waxing removes the entire hair shaft from the root so the new hair grows back thinner and tapered at the end, making it is less likely to get trapped under the top layer of the skin. Ingrown hairs are still possible with waxing, but an experienced waxing technician will know how to help prevent them.

Hair Grows Back Thinner and Softer

Within a day or two of shaving, you may feel like a prickly cactus. One major advantage of waxing is that hair grows back thinner and lighter than it does with shaving. If you keep coming into Flirt Urban Salon for regular waxing, eventually you’ll begin to notice that your hair will become sparser and less noticeable in areas that have been waxed. This is because constant waxing eventually makes the hair follicles weaker and less viable. In some cases, hair growth may eventually stop. Conversely, shaving can actually stimulate hair growth because it removes hair at the surface and not at the root.

Waxing Exfoliates Your Skin

In addition to removing unwanted body hair, waxing can also remove dry/dead skin cells, exfoliating your skin and leaving it softer and glowing.

Men Can Also Enjoy the Benefits of Waxing

Our San Diego salon also offers waxing for men. Male waxing is growing in popularity, especially when it comes to removing unwanted back hair, stomach hair, and nose hair. Flutter and Honey also offers Male Brazilian waxing.
