Leg Waxing at Lagoon, Wimbledon

In today’s modern society there is an ever increasing pressure for women to look their best and this has led to a huge increase in the number of women turning to leg waxing as the best option for hair-free legs. Waxing generally lasts longer than many other hair removal alternatives and on re-growth it produces finer, smoother hair. Lagoon beauty salon based in Wimbledon, SW London offers a range of leg waxing to meet different individual's requirements, including full leg waxing, three-quarter leg waxing and half leg waxing. Combined treatment packages of leg waxing with bikini waxing (or Brazilian wax or Hollywood Wax) are also very popular, a full range of the options is shown on our waxing price list.

Steps for Leg Waxing

The first step before any leg waxing can commence is to ensure that your leg hair is long enough to be suitable for waxing. Here you must ensure that leg hair is at least 1/4" long so that the wax can adhere to it. Then the area to be waxed is cleansed with pre-wax lotion by one of Lagoon's team of experienced waxing technicians. Using a wax applicator or spatula, a small amount of wax is spread in a thin and even layer over the area to be waxed, in the opposite direction to our hair growth.

A waxing strip is placed over the area and pressed down, so it adheres the wax. The waxing strip is then pulled off in the opposite direction to the hair growth, to remove your hair. This process is repeated over the entire area of your legs that require waxing. Any remaining stubborn hairs are removed using a pair of tweezers. After removing the wax and hair, the waxed area is gently dabbed with antiseptic after wax lotion to cleanse and soothe the skin.

Waxing Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks that may help you with your whole leg waxing experience.
1). Avoid using beauty products on the newly waxed area (for 24 hours after the waxing). As the ingredients within the product could react with the delicate skin pores and cause irritation.
2). After waxing and for a few days after, it is recommended that loose fitting clothing is worn to prevent rubbing or irritation to the area that has been waxed.
3). Regularly exfoliate your legs using a body scrub to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs occurring.
