Why Body Waxing Is Better Than Other Hair Removal Options

With the constant routine of shaving and plucking, hair removal is a tedious chore for most people throughout the Treasure Valley. Fortunately, a worthy option awaits you at your Boise hair salon. Body waxing is a superior hair removal method compared to other options for a wide variety of reasons. Even more, once you try it for yourself, you’re more than likely to be convinced. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with the following reasons body waxing is a winning choice for hair removal.

Lasting Smoothness

Shaving and plucking is a daily activity for most people. With body waxing, however, the results last much longer. In fact, people often experience an average of 3-6 weeks of lasting smoothness depending on your the texture of your hair. Even better, you’ll find that your hair grows back lighter and finer than before, so you’ll be able to go even longer between appointments.

Safe For Most Skin Types

Some long-term options like laser hair removal are effective. However, they don’t suit everyone. Because laser hair removal only targets dark pigments of hair, it won’t work for blonde hair. Even more, it can burn those with dark complexions. With body waxing, you don’t have to worry about skin tones or hair colors. Everyone can get the hair removal results they want at their Boise hair salon.

Less Painful Than Other Options

Unlike laser hair removal which feels like you’re being touched by a hot match every time it targets a single dark pigment of hair, body waxing is more like pulling off a band-aid. In fact, most people only experience a slight pinching or stinging sensation after the body waxing strip is pulled off. Even more, you won’t have to smell the aroma of burnt hair. Once your body waxing treatment is complete, your unDONE technician will provide you with a soothing lotion to calm any irritation.

Affordable Hair Removal

Compared to many other hair removal options, body waxing is an extremely affordable Boise hair salon treatment. Pricing depends on the areas of your body being waxed but is significantly more affordable than laser hair removal or electrolysis which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

unDONE Salon: Summer Body Waxing Tips

It’s that time of year again! Soon you’ll be bikini-clad and bound for the Boise River. So what does that mean? It’s high time to get your summer body waxing on! If you’re a veteran waxer you’ve probably stayed diligent with your routine over the winter. But if you haven’t or if you’re new to the waxing game entirely, unDONE Salon has a few tips to help you get ready!

Ditch The Razor

First things first, it’s time to ditch the razor. Areas that you plan to wax will no longer require shaving. In fact, shaving will only complicate the waxing process. For effective waxing services, you’ll need your unwanted body hair to be at least a quarter inch long. You also shouldn’t shave in between your body waxing appointments either. Shaving with a razor causes your hair to become more coarse, which can make it more difficult to remove by waxing. It can also make your hair more susceptible to breakage which can lead to ingrown hairs. Simply put, ditch the razor!

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Secondly, it’s important to exfoliate the areas you want to be waxed before your appointment. In fact, it’s best to get into the habit of exfoliating a few times per week. By removing the surface layer of dead skin cells, you allow the wax to get a better grip on unwanted hair. Regular exfoliation will also help reduce your chances of developing ingrown hairs caused by breakage.

Establish A Routine

Last but not least, it’s important to establish a regular waxing routing. For veteran waxers, you can probably go six weeks between unDONE appointments. If you’re a beginner, on the other hand, you will probably need to schedule appointments approximately four weeks apart. Keep in mind that over time, you will be able to stretch this out because regular waxing will cause your hair to grow back finer and more slowly. Benefits of regular waxing also include easier, less painful waxing down the road because it becomes easier to remove each time.

Undone Salon: Get Your Winter Wax On

As the cold winter months approach, we start to put away our summer wardrobe and begin to fill our closets with warm jackets, boots, and sweaters. However, while most people tend to give in to the cold, they often forget to maintain their normal skincare routine, putting their skin’s appearance and health at risk.

At unDONE Salon, we understand why people tend to put off body waxing during the winter. After all, what’s the point right? But in reality, there’s more to waxing that just removing fuzz. Hair removal, especially body waxing, can help you maintain the healthy, more radiant skin that you worked so hard to achieve during the warm summer months.

While every season has it’s pros and cons when it comes to your skin, winter is an especially dry time of year. That’s why it’s important to exfoliate, moisturize more often and drink plenty of water. With all these precautions, however, you may not think body waxing is important. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following reasons body waxing can greatly contribute to your skin’s overall health.

Exfoliate & Moisturize

Body waxing works to remove unwanted hair while removing dead skin cells in the process. This provides you with a brand-new layer of smooth skin. By removing the buildup of dead skin cells, your skin will have a better chance at absorbing nourishing body creams and lotions providing it with the moisture it needs during the dry winter months.

Eliminate Ingrown Hairs

Not only is winter harsh on your skin, it makes it prone to itching, redness and ingrown hairs. By maintaining your normal skincare routine, body waxing will reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. This will keep your skin soft and smooth over the winter months and ready to show off when the weather warms up.

Failing to Wax

Failing to maintain your regular waxing treatments will cause you to lose all the progress you achieved from previous body waxing sessions. The reason for this is because the more you wax, the longer it takes for your hair to grow back. Your hair will also grow back finer and softer than before. However, if you stop your regular treatments, you may have to start all over again when it comes to reducing hair growth.

Book Your Waxing and Hair Removal Appointment Now!

Winter is the perfect time for body waxing treatments. By keeping up on the process, your skin will look and feel better without all the bumps and irritation caused from shaving. Don’t make the mistake of quitting your normal skincare routine. Make sure your skin is silky smooth and breathtakingly beautiful just in time to show it off when the weather warms up!

unDONE Salon: Fall Skin Care Treatments

A change of the seasons, especially here in Idaho, means a change in the way our skin reacts to the elements. As a result, dryness, breakouts and a dull complexion are often things we battle during the fall and winter months. When this happens it’s important to review your skin care needs and seek the advice from your unDONE esthetician. She will be able to provide you with a variety of skincare treatment options that might be right for you.

The good news is that you won’t need to revamp your entire routine. Instead, only minor adjustments in your regimen can go along way. Below are some of the best treatments unDONE offers to keep your skin healthy as we transition to fall.

Chemical peel

A chemical peel is an exfoliation treatment that combats a wide range of skincare concerns like aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring and uneven skin tone. A light chemical peel provided by the esthetician at our Boise hair salon, are non-invasive treatments that remove the upper layers of dead and damaged skin while encouraging skin cell regeneration. The strength and formulation of the chemical solution applied always depends on the individual needs of our client.

Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the removal of dry surface skin cells through the use of scrubbing, brushing or microdermabrasion. Exfoliation is considered one of the most important techniques your Boise hair salon esthetician recommends to resolve certain skin problems to achieve healthy, glowing skin.

Facial

A facial is one of the most popular treatments performed by the esthetician at our Boise hair salon. A facial generally includes cosmetics removal, skin cleansing, exfoliation, facial massage, and a treatment mask followed up with serums, moisturizers, and sunblock. For most clients, facials can be scheduled out every four weeks. However, your esthetician may recommend an alternative schedule based upon your individual needs.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a resurfacing process that sands the epidermal (outermost) layer of the skin, using a wand tipped machine with crushed diamonds. This form of exfoliation can be quite helpful when it comes to enhancing your skin’s texture while eliminating fine lines and boosting the effectiveness of product and serum penetration.

Micro-Needling

Get healthier, fresher skin with a micro-needling treatment! Non-invasive, this treatment helps to erase scars and smooth wrinkles with a device that gently rolls across the face, pricking your skin with tiny needles. Your skin reacts immediately by producing more collagen, helping to diminish scars and wrinkles while improving the overall look of your skin! This popular Boise hair salon treatment can be used on any skin type and is a brief procedure with minimal recovery time.

Waxing

Body waxing at unDONE Salon helps to eliminate unwanted hair from the root. It is not only convenient and cost effective but long lasting and quick as well. Once waxed, your skin should be smooth for approximately 2-4 weeks. Body waxing also doubles as an exfoliant by shedding your skin of the top layer of dead skin cells. And as an added bonus, body waxing does not consist of harsh chemicals which can irritate your skin, and there’s no chance of cutting yourself with a razor!

Which Treatment is Right For You?

So what treatment option is right for you? All of the methods listed above are great for almost everyone. If you are starting to see visible signs of sun damage or premature aging, consider booking an appointment at unDONE Salon to see what skin care treatment would work best for you. Our esthetician can help provide you with healthy, brighter skin for a renewed appearance just in time for fall.

Boise Hair Salon Tips To Save Your Summer Skin

It’s summertime and the livin’s easy… From swimming to camping to outdoor concerts, everyone is making the most out of the warm weather and long days ahead. While all these activities are good for your soul, your skin may be a little less enthusiastic about the outdoor elements. That’s why unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following tips to keep your skin healthy and beautiful all summer long.

Use Sunscreen

Even if you’re outside for a short period of time, exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can be dangerous to your skin. To maintain protection, add sunscreen to your daily, morning beauty routine. If you know you’re going to be outside for longer periods of time, take extra sunscreen with you and make sure to reapply it every couple of hours.

*Keep in mind that it’s important to use an SPF that is 30+ or higher and to shade your skin whenever possible.

Soothe The Sunburn

The first thing you need to do when fighting an unwanted sunburn is to get the inflammation to go down. Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to sooth and cool the skin. Ibuprofen can also help to reduce swelling and redness. Be sure to drink lots of water since a sunburn will actually draw fluid to the skin surface and away from the rest of the body.

Exfoliate Often

Just because winter is behind us doesn’t mean you should skip out on exfoliating your skin. To maintain smooth, clear skin, gently exfoliate at least twice a week. This will help to remove any dead skin cells along with dirt, sweat and product buildup. After you exfoliate, make sure to use a hydrating cream to help seal in the moisture.

Clear Your Pores

Deep cleaning your skin with a monthly facial will help it to breath and absorb powerful serums. Hot summer temperatures trigger oil production and clog pores, especially when you wear makeup. A monthly facial will help your clear your skin while soothing sensitivity. unDONE Salon offers a variety of facial treatments to choose from that will help keep your pores healthy and your skin radiant!

Throw Away Your Razor

With the hot summer weather, we tend to wear fewer clothes which means exposing your skin to the world. If you find yourself sick of having to shave everyday it’s probably time for a body waxing treatment. Whether you’re a waxing beginner or an experienced pro, unDONE Salon offers a wide range of body waxing services to help you maintain smooth, summer skin!  

Skip the Tanning Bed

A Boise spray tan is the quickest and safest way to a gorgeous glow. Tanning beds and overexposure to the sun can be dangerous. If you want to maintain a sun-kissed look during the dog days of summer, unDONE Salon offers a naturally formulated spray tan formula that fortifies your skin’s natural defenses with fast drying, quick absorbing results.

unDONE Salon Summer Body Waxing Tips

Believe it or not, it’s just a matter of days before you’ll be relaxing poolside in that new bikini you’ve been waiting all season to wear. The question is, are you ready? At unDONE Salon, we understand that summer means tons of unwanted shaving in order to show off smooth, warm weather skin. That’s why it’s important to get your summer waxing game into full swing! However, if you’re new to the whole body waxing scene, we’ve got a few tips to help you get ready.

First things first…

If you want smooth skin that lasts for weeks without shaving, it’s time to put down the razor. Whether it’s your upper lip, legs or underarms, you’ll no longer be requiring its services. In fact, shaving only complicates the body waxing process. In order for a body waxing treatment to be effective, hair must be at least a quarter of an inch long. You also won’t want to shave in between body waxing appointments either. Shaving makes unwanted hair much courser, making it more difficult to remove by waxing. It also makes the hair more likely to break off, which can lead to painful, ingrown hairs. So before you do anything else, get rid of the razor!

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate…

Second, it’s important to exfoliate the areas of your skin you want waxed before your appointment. In fact, it’s a good idea to make it a normal ritual by exfoliating your skin a few times per week. Exfoliating your skin will remove any dead, surface skin cells that prevent the wax from gripping unwanted hair. Continued exfoliation will also reduce your chances of developing ingrown hairs in between your body waxing appointments.

Schedule routine appointments

Finally, it’s important to schedule routine body waxing appointments to ensure soft, smooth skin all summer long. For those who wax regularly, you can expect to book your appointments approximately 6 weeks apart. If you’re just starting out, you’ll probably need to schedule appointments every 3-4 weeks. The reason being is that over time, you’ll be able to stretch out the time it takes for your hair to regrow because regular body waxing causes it to grow back more slowly. The best part? Each time you wax, the hair grows back finer, making it easier and less painful to remove.

Body Waxing: Are You Spring Break Smooth?

With summer just around the corner, it’s time for spring break! Now is the perfect time to get a smooth, bikini-ready body to look and feel your best. At unDONE Salon, we offer a wide range of body waxing and spray tanning services to help you get ready to bare a little skin!  

Check out the following skin care solution tips to prep your skin for the warm weather ahead.

Exfoliate Your Skin

After a long, dry winter, it’s important to exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells before a body waxing treatment. Doing so will help detoxify your skin while preventing any ingrown hairs, bumps and blemishes. Exfoliation also helps to promote circulation allowing your skin to breath. For a total body exfoliation, try using a loofah, body scrub or dry body brush to maintain radiant, healthy skin.

Start Body Waxing Early

With routine body waxing treatments, you will reduce hair growth while ensuring you have longer periods of smooth, hair-free skin. Body waxing removes hair at the root, which not only discourages future follicle growth, but damages its ability to grow it back. By body waxing early, you will give yourself a chance to eliminate those course stubborn hairs before summer.

Body Wax First, Spray Tan Second

While body waxing helps to exfoliate the skin, it can also make your skin more prone to sunburn. That’s why it’s important to stay out of the sun for at least 24-48 hours after a body waxing treatment. If it’s a tanned look you want, skip the sunburn with a Boise spray tan at unDONE Salon. We offer a VINO spray tan that’s derived from plant sources like muscadine grapes that will leave your skin soft and moisturized. Not only is it safe to use, but effective at achieving your golden glow goals.

Stay Hydrated

Once you’ve achieved smooth, tanned skin, it’s important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. Not only is drinking water important for overall health, it will provide you with radiant, healthy, younger looking skin. Without sufficient amounts of water, a lack of hydration will turn your skin dry causing it to become tight, and flaky. Dry skin is also less resilient, making it more prone to wrinkles.

Winter Body Waxing Tips

Many people throughout the Treasure Valley feel that body waxing is only necessary during the hot summer months. However this could be farther from the truth. It’s actually better to start  waxing now rather than wait for warmer weather. While it may not be bathing suit season, and your body isn’t as visible to others, there are a variety of benefits to year-round body waxing:

Reduced Hair Growth

The #1 goal for most people who wax is to eliminate or substantially reduce hair growth on certain areas of their body. Body waxing removes hair at the root, which not only discourages future follicle growth, but damages its ability to grow back. By continuing to wax during the winter, you provide yourself with a chance to eliminate those course stubborn hairs before summer.

Healthier Skin

In the winter, the dry, heated air causes our skin to become tight, dry and flaky. Body waxing helps to exfoliate dead skin cells while encouraging new skin growth at the cellular level. It also helps to increase blood circulation to the surface of the skin. Combined, these benefits help to soften and moisturize your skin, leaving it healthy and beautiful.

Less Pain!

It’s no secret that body waxing isn’t the most comfortable hair removal option. However, when you avoid or go long periods without waxing it can be more painful. The more often you wax, the less painful it will be. Every time you body wax, you weaken the roots of your hair. The hair then grows in finer and thinner making it easier to remove. Over time, body waxing will become relatively pain-free when you have it done consistently.

You Feel Better

Body waxing provides you with sexy-smooth skin. Without unwanted stubble, you just feel better. It boosts your self-confidence, and makes you feel more comfortable. There is no reason to deprive yourself of this when you are covered up during the winter. Enjoy feeling good all year long and keep up your body waxing routine!

Book Your Waxing and Hair Removal Appointment Now!

Winter is the perfect time for body waxing treatments. By keeping up on the process, your skin will look and feel better without all the bumps and irritation caused from shaving. Don’t make the mistake of quitting your routine. Make sure your skin is silky smooth and breathtakingly beautiful just in time to show it off when the weather warms up!

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Maintaining Your Summer Glow This Fall

During the summertime, your skin looks beautiful, glowing and radiant. When your skin is on display during the hot summer months, it has the power to dictate your self-confidence and how you feel about yourself. Investing in proper skincare has a value that far surpasses a new outfit or even an expensive vacation. In fact, when we do go on vacation we tend to spend more time prepping our skin with body waxing and Boise spray tans than we do picking out our outfits.

Just because fall is now upon us and the weather is a bit crisper doesn’t mean you can’t keep your skin in peak condition. Instead, it’s important to maintain luminous, healthy skin throughout the winter months ahead- and here’s how!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize…

Don’t forget to maintain a regular moisturizing routine this fall season. Beautiful skin is healthy skin, and healthy skin is hydrated skin. As the temperature drops and winds become a little brisker, it’s important to start opting for a heavier cream that will provide you with an extra boost of moisture to help combat the harsh winter elements. Trust us. Your skin will thank you.

Exfoliate

Even if you moisturize your skin on a daily basis and don’t have any dry patches, it’s still important to exfoliate at least once a week. At-home exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that make your skin look dull. Use either a sugar scrub, masque, loofah or similar shower scrub to give yourself a gentle exfoliation every time you shower.

Schedule a Boise Hair Salon Facial

While an at-home facial is always a good idea when it comes to cleaning and exfoliating, sometimes you just can’t beat the benefits of a professional facial at unDONE Salon. A professional facial can reach deep into your skin’s upper layers to strip away dead skin cells and reveal newer skin cells underneath. Deep cleansing facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels will help you achieve even greater results. Treatments such as these can boost the growth of new skin cells and help soften the skin to eliminate fine lines while providing your skin with a firmer, tighter look.

Not only is a professional facial a pampering Boise hair salon service, you’ll be amazed at how your skin will look and feel starting with just one treatment. Our certified esthetician will consult with you to help you decide which facial service is best suited for your skin.

Maintain Color with a Boise Spray Tan

If you tend to spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer to get that perfect sun-kissed glow, it won’t be so easy during the fall. Instead of subjecting yourself to harsh UV rays, opt for a Boise spray tan. A Vino spray tan at unDONE Salon is a specially formulated solution that will leave your skin soft and moisturized while achieving your golden glow goals. Keep in mind that your skin naturally sheds every 5 – 10 days so you will need to maintain your Boise spray tan every two weeks.

Use Illuminating Products

Illuminating products like face and body highlighters or bronzers can help you fake a summer glow. Make sure to dust highlighter over the highpoints of your body where you want to draw attention. Apply shimmer to the areas on your face and body that the sun would naturally shine in order to enhance the effect. Try a sweep of shimmer over your cheekbones, collarbones, the tops of your shoulders, and around your biceps. Pairing your highlight with a touch of bronzer can also help you look like you just returned from a beach vacation.

In summary, the skin care tips above will help you to maintain your summer glow well into the fall and throughout the winter months.
