Why Our Waxing Services Are a Cut Above

Here at Hush, we use Nufree wax: a 100% botanical, no-chemical, no-sugar wax alternative. That’s right—Nufree is not an actual wax. It’s a unique formula that sticks only to the hair and not to your skin, making it quick, comfortable, and virtually painless. That’s what makes it the gold standard in hair removal and safe for most areas of the body.

Nufree uproots the entire bulb and hair shaft, making it different from traditional wax, which breaks hair off at the surface. Because of its unique formulation, it can achieve these results without the pain, redness, or swelling that can often occur with traditional wax. We choose Nufree because it is the only antimicrobial, non-wax hair removal system in the world, offering a silky smooth experience all around!

Waxing FAQs

Why is waxing better for you than shaving?

When you shave with a razor, you’re simply cutting each hair short, leaving behind a sharp tip that can easily grow back under the skin (that’s what we call an ingrown hair). Additionally, the metals in razors can irritate and dry out the skin, even if you don’t typically have a sensitivity. 

Even better, our waxing system pulls hair out from the root, resulting in longer-lasting smoothness. Over time, most people experience much less hair regrowth, and the hairs that do come back are thinner. Not only will you have smoother skin for longer, you’ll have healthier skin, too!

How often should you wax?

The ideal schedule depends on the area we’re waxing and how long you’ve been waxing. For first-timers, we typically recommend more frequent sessions. Over time, some people see a reduction in hair growth that means they can go longer between waxes. We’ll chat about the ideal schedule for you to make sure you’re getting the results you want!

In general, we recommend these schedules:

  • Legs: 3 to 5 weeks
  • Bikini: 2 to 3 weeks
  • Brazilian: 3 to 4 weeks
  • Face: 2 to 3 weeks
  • Underarms: 2 weeks
What should I know about waxing prep and aftercare?

We have a few tips to help you get the most out of your waxing appointment with Hush!

Before Your Wax:

  • Let your hair grow out for 10 to 14 days, until hairs are about â…›-¼” long (about the size of a grain of rice)
  • Gently exfoliate your skin on the day prior to your appointment (not the day of)
  • Moisturize your skin well in the days before your appointment
  • We recommend wearing breezy, breathable clothing so you can leave comfortably

After Your Wax:

  • Keep the waxed area clean
  • Avoid tanning, saunas, hot tubs, and any other heat and friction for the next 24-48 hours
  • Don’t scratch or touch the area any more than you have to
  • We’ll talk about ideal products for soothing, scrubbing, and maintaining your healthy skin!
