I'm pregnant. Can I still get a facial?
Let your skin therapist know and she will make sure that the products used in your facial are safe for pregnancy. It depends on which facial you get as some products/services are not recommended during pregnancy.
Will I go orange?

How long do I have to leave my tan on before I can shower?

How do I prep for a tan?
Exfoliate, shave & moisturise the day before your appointment.
Can I wax while taking steroid creams?
No, steroid creams thin your skin and you risk having skin taken off. We recommend waiting at least 6months before any waxing treatment.
Will waxing make my hair thicker?
With waxing, the hair is being removed from the root and it grows back thinner, instead of being chopped off like shaving.
How often should I wax?
Usually every 4weeks, depending on different factors e.g. hormones, genetics, etc.
How long should my hair be so it can be waxed?
The longer, the better. If you are worried your hair is too long, let us trim it for you. Some people trim their hair too short and we can't wax it because the wax can't grip the hair. Your hair should be minimum 0.5-1mm long.
What is the difference between hot wax and strip wax?
Hot wax is applied to the area and allowed to dry then pulled off. Hot wax is for thicker hairs such as underarms or bikini hairs. Strip wax is applied to the skin and a paper strip is applied on top and then quickly removed. Strip wax is for thinner hairs e.g. legs, arms, back, etc.
I suffer from Ingrown hairs. Is there anything I can do to prevent them?
Yes! You can start with using an exfoliating glove with body wash and use that everyday until the hair comes through the surface. If you need something more, then we suggest using a product called PFB Vanish, which is an ingrown hair solution.
Do you offer threading?
I over plucked my eyebrows and want a fuller, natural look. Can you help?
We definitely can! We put you through brow rehab by doing a consultation and a brow shape and tint to show you what you can end up with.
What type of dye is the lash tint?
Lash tints are vegetable dye - not the same as hair dye.
Can I wear contact lenses during a lash tint?
We don't recommend it as the tint can get trapped under the lense and irritate your eyes.
What technique do you use to apply the extensions?
We apply our eyelash extensions individually. This ensures a damage-free lash set.
How long do they last?
It varies for everyone but usually between 3-4 weeks.
Does the application hurt?
No. In fact, majority of our clients feel so relaxed they fall asleep.
What's the difference between traditional polish and gel polish?
Traditional polish air dries and gel polish requires a LED lamp to set it. Gel polish lasts for around 2-4weeks where traditional can last from 1 day up to 7 days. Traditional polish can be removed easily by wiping over with nail polish remover, where gel polish needs to be soaked off with acetone.

Shellac is the original 'brand' of gel polish. There are other brands as well such as Artistic Colourgloss, Gelish, etc.

Can I bring my children with me to my appointment?
