12 Things You NEED To Know Before Your Next Wax

We're always sad to see summer leave, except for one tiny detail: waxing. For those of us who choose to remove hair with this less-than-pleasant method, the fall and winter months are typically a welcome break from that monthly riiiiiiiiiiiip.
Yet, Melanie Gilliland, European Waxing Center’s education director, says adhering to your waxing schedule is one of the more important summer habits you can stick to when the seasons change. “Getting waxed religiously every three to four weeks — throughout the entire year, not just during the bare-all summer months — is the secret to both less pain and better results,” says Gilliland.
So, while a waxing sesh may not be our favorite of fall activities, the 12 little-known waxing truths ahead promise to not only lessen the pain but also help remove some of the fear and anxiety that come with a stranger ripping off our hair follicles. And, we’ll take any help we can get.
