WAXING

...because it feels so good once it's done, doesn't it.

My technique is a much less painful approach, so I do things a little differently.
I use the gentlest warm wax for sensitive skin, Epyliss White Queen.
I shop for the fabric strips myself to ensure they're as soft as can be.
And most importantly, I take smaller strips than most.
This means the appointment times are a bit longer, but it also means my technique:
hurts a lot less
has longer lasting results
way less chance of hair breakage
(breakage causes early regrowth/needing to get waxed more often/ingrowns)
has a faster healing time
is gentler and better for your skin
The bikini waxes are also very generous because, let's face it, the bikini line doesn't always know where to stop ;)
MUST ARRIVE EARLY FOR ALL APPOINTMENTS!!!
please use the washroom before your start time so it doesn't cut into your wax time

About Me

Hi.

You could say it all started back in 1987, when my high-school crush thought it would be cute to call me 'TeenWolf'

(a very popular movie at the time)

:)

Who knew one of my teenage obsessions with unwanted hair would actually end up helping many other women.

Born and raised in Vancouver,

I was a very very very lucky girl to start out my professional journey with one-on-one training, from two of the best waxers in town.

They generously imparted their attention to detail, hard-working ethic, tips from the trade, and more than 20 years experience upon me.

 

That was 15 years ago.

All that, along with my background in massage, the best warm wax for sensitive skin, and my love for the job is what makes me good at what I do.

 

It's been ten years now, since I branched out on my own and I still love every day of it.

I love my little studio.

So, wether it's your first time or your one-hundreth,

put down the shaver and let me do what I'm best at.

 

Kind regards,

Cherie.

FAQ'S

 
 
Is warm wax safe to use on all body parts?
Yes, yes, yes.
If your waxer knows what they're doing it can be some of the LEAST PAINFUL stuff in this business, for your business.
What if I need to cancel/reschedule?
You can text, call, email, or do it online...doesn't matter how, just do it.
Please give 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule.
Please make sure your email address (and phone number) are updated in the online booking system so you don't miss your email reminder.
 
How do I pay for my service?
With Cherie: Cash, cheque, and email transfer.
With Tatiana: Cash, cheque, email transfer, and credit/debit.
What should I do the day of my appointment?
Wear loose comfortable clothing (no, that doesn't mean tights).
Do not moisturize the area being waxed.
Arrive early to use the washroom.
Get your payment sorted, if you are bringing cash.
Think about what you wanna watch on Netlfix lol.
Look forward to getting away from it all for a little bit while you're here.
What should I do before I book my appointment?
Make sure your hair is long enough!
Please grow it out for at least four weeks after any other wax, shaving or trimming.
If you are not sure what that means, please text me at 604-809-2437 or email me at cherie.waxtheboutique@gmail.com.
What should I do after I get waxed? What is the after-care?

Keep your skin clean and friction-free.

For 24 to 48 hours:

No excessive sweating i.e. spin class/yoga/pilates etc.) 

No swimming, hot tubs, bubble baths, hot baths.

No tanning.

No restrictive clothing i.e. skinny jeans.

No sex.

Most importantly, exfoliate with fine-grain sea salt every day to prevent ingrown hairs.

Why are the wax booking times so long?
I like to take things a little slower/wax smaller strips for the following reasons:
 
hurts a lot less
gentler on your skin
faster healing time
less chance of hair breakage
longer lasting results
Please be respectful of the starting time, as it's a busy little shop and everyone's time (which includes yours :)) is valuable.
I would like to provide you the best service possible, and punctuality is a big part of that.
So get here early!
Thank you.

Why should I get waxed?

Your hair grows back softer and there is way less of it. No scratchy stubble, or five-o'clock shadow, like after shaving or trimming.

What kind of wax do you use?

Epyliss White Queen warm wax, with soft fabric strips.

It's from Paris, ooh la la.

How long will the results last?

Anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks – even longer after a series of regular visits.

Will I get ingrown hairs?

It depends on how well you take care of your skin before and after your wax.

See rules for after care above.

We are all susceptible to them, but they can be prevented, lessened and/or removed.

What should I do about ingrown hairs?

DO NOT pick them and especially DO NOT pinch them.

Keep your skin clean and exfoliate. If it doesn't come out on its own, let your esthetician take care of it at your next appointment.

If you get a bad one, use a hot compress.

How much does waxing hurt?

Well, we are dealing with things such as the density of your hair, how regularly you get waxed, and if you are pre-menstrual, tired, hung over, stressed out etc. You can expect a certain amount of pain, but ask around...

it's so worth it.

Does it get easier if I come regularly?

Definitely.

The more you come, the faster the hair follicle will give up and die off, meaning less to be pulled out. Less hair = less pain.

Will my skin be bumpy and red after waxing?

Most likely, depending on your skin. However, don't worry it goes away rather quickly...especially when you follow the after care rules.

 
Do I have to get naked to be waxed?

Since we are dealing with things such as baby powder, baby oil and wax, it is best to remove undergarments. By no means are you obligated to disrobe.

Your comfort comes first.

 
What do I use to exfoliate?

The best thing on the market is something you can find in your own kitchen...sea salt.

Not rock salt or Epsom salts, but FINE GRAIN sea salt.

Keep it in the shower; use it every day and your skin will never look or feel better.

 
Why should I go to Wax the Boutique?

I'm reminded of a tip a friend in the restaurant biz gave me:

"Never go to a restaurant with a big menu because everything is done at a mediocre level".

The same can be said in the beauty industry, and that is why I have chosen to specialize in hair removal.

SEE YOU SOON
