Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you are a first time client or someone we love to see each month, the FAQs below cover the very questions you have but are afraid to ask!

What forms of payment do you accept?
In the Pink currently accepts cash and check only. Be sure to bring along plenty for services and for the fantastic products that we have hand-selected to best suit you after your In The Pink treatment.

What is your service policy?
In the Pink strives to provide the best possible wellness experience for our clients. As a result, we reserve the right to refuse service to any clients or potential clients that could result in safety or health issues.

Why wax?
Waxing leaves the skin soft, smooth and bump-free AND it lasts much longer than most other hair removal methods. It is effective on nearly all hair types. When hair starts to grow back after repeated waxing, it may be softer and sparser. (Oh…and did we mention the benefits to pregnant women?)

What is a Brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax can remove all the hair from down there – front and back nether regions – leaving you silky smooth everywhere the sun don’t shine! You’ll look and feel so good – and a little naughty at the same time! Spontaneous blushing may ensue.

Can I get waxed if I’m pregnant?
Yes! In fact, you may need and want to wax even more when you’re pregnant. The further along you are, the more, um, challenging it can be to do a good job of grooming. Plus, there are some hygiene benefits to having things under control down there. For even more info on this, check out our special page devoted to expecting moms.

Can I do a Brazilian wax at home?
Not unless you’re a contortionist! Pretzels, anyone? Our professionals can see all the places you can’t. And they have the experience to do the job quickly and effectively. You’ll go from “OK” to “Oh Yeah!” faster than you can say “Clark Kent in a telephone booth”! (well, maybe not quite that fast, but you get the idea, right?)

How bad does waxing hurt?
That depends on your tolerance for pain, but sure it will hurt some. Trust our customers, though, it’s worth it! If you’re worried, you can reduce potential discomfort by applying a topical analgesic – like No Scream Cream (available at In the Pink) – 30 – 45 minutes before your session.

How long does waxing take?
We pride ourselves on getting you in and getting the hair off quick. A Brazilian wax at In The Pink takes about 15 minutes from when you hop on the table to when you leave as a happy, satisfied, smooth operator.

How do I prepare for my wax?
You’ll want to make sure the hair is sufficient length for the best results.

  • Facial hair – lip, chin, eyebrows, etc – should be about 2 weeks of growth from last wax.
  • Underarms – 8 to 10 days from last shave.
  • Body hair – should be about 2 weeks of growth from last wax.
  • Brazilian & bikini – minimum 2 weeks from last shave. The hair needs to be around half an inch. If you must trim to achieve the desired length, always use scissors not clippers.

How often will I need a wax?
Waxing is recommended every 4 weeks for every body part except for face and underarms. Face and underarms or other body parts, you’ll need to keep an eye out for hair growth. Make sure you call for your appointment at least 1 week prior to when you want your wax. High demand means appointments may be harder to find than an unwanted hair on an In The Pink client!

How do I prepare for my facial?
Don’t worry about makeup removal , etc. – just come prepared to be pampered.

How do I make an appointment?
Your best bet is to jump on over to our online scheduling tool here. Appointments are available weekdays including some evenings.

How do I cancel an appointment?
