I am Julie Irey and let me tell you a bit about myself. I have an extensive background in Esthetics training from Federico College, continued education in Brazilian Waxing from Grace Albert Aesthetics in Los Angeles, CA as well as continued education in Brow Design and Brazilian Waxing here in Bakersfield.
Please click the "Services" link above to learn about my complete line of services offered as well as my competitive pricing. The link to Frequently Asked Questions will tell you more about me and my services but feel free to call me at 661.742.5999 if you have any questions not addressed in this website, or to make an appointment.
I was born and raised here in Bakersfield and am happy to be offering my Waxing services from Endless Summer Salon located at Coffee & Hageman.
My goal is to offer phenomenal waxing services at reasonable prices in a relaxing salon environment, in a private room. I offer many diverse waxing services that range from as little as a brow wax to a men's full body wax.
My promise is to remove hair in the most gentle way possible, and to help you look and feel your best. I understand that waxing is personal and private, so I'm committed to making you comfortable, both through friendly, straightforward service and the very best waxing products and techniques available.
My forté is my ability to work quickly without making my clients feel rushed. I offer topical anesthetic (Numb It, $5 per application), to minimize discomfort and consider cleanliness to be of utmost importance-I never double dip my sticks.
Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!
What is a Brazilian?
The Brazilian wax basically takes ALL hair away from the bikini area, sometimes leaving just a tiny strip of closely shorn hair in the front, leaving what we refer to a "landing strip".
What can I do to prepare?
Avoiding caffeine the morning of your wax appointment will greatly reduce sensitivity. Caffeine restricts the blood vessels which increases sensitivity. Taking two Ibuprofen 1 hour prior will also aid in reducing sensitivity and inflammation.
Does Waxing Hurt?
Depending on your skin sensitivity and the coarseness of your hair, there is some discomfort involved; however most women find it quite tolerable. The first wax is always the most uncomfortable, but the more you wax, the less it hurts. I work quickly and because of my training and technique, the pain is greatly minimized.
How long should I wait to get waxed after I've shaved?
I recommend three to four weeks.
Is it OK to shave between wax appointments?
No, I don't advise shaving in between appointments. Since waxing slows down the growth of hair and hair actually comes in thinner, you will need your hair removed less frequently than you normally need to shave. Shaving will reverse the benefits that waxing gives and can even irritate hair follicles. In addition, shaving can create ingrown hairs, redness and irritation.
How often should I make an appointment?
I recommend coming in every four to six weeks. When the hair is about 1/4" long you'll know it's time to make an appointment. Then, when you wax on a regular basis, your hair will grown in thinner and slower.
How long will it last?
By sticking to a regular waxing and exfoliating regime, you will be able to expect up to 4 weeks of no hair growth. This varies with individuals and it may take a few waxings to get these results. I can give you more information on how to fully benefit from waxing at your first appointment.
I'm on my period. Can I get waxed?
If possible, avoid scheduling your appointment just before or during your menstrual cycle. We recommend this only because we tend to be most sensitive during this time.
How long does it take?
I work quickly. It will take about 15-20 minutes.
What can I expect afterwards?
The waxed skin might be tender for a couple of days. You might consider using hydrocortisone cream to speed healing.
What is "Double Dipping" and is waxing sanitary?
"Double Dipping" is dipping the waxing stick back in the waxing vat after using it on a client. This can possibly cause the spread of bacteria. I only dip once then toss the stick away. This way you can be assured that waxing is, indeed, sanitary.
Are there any topical creams or medications that I should avoid prior to getting waxed?
Yes there are. Certain medications can thin out the skin, causing you to possibly peel or burn during the waxing procedure. If you are concerned about this please call me prior to your waxing appointment and I can give you more information.
Can I tan before or after I get waxed?
Waxing will take a fresh tan right off so you should never get waxed while a tan is "fresh". You should never get waxed if you are sunburned either. In addition, I advise you to wait for 3 days after you have waxed to tan. Waxed skin is more photosensitive and is more susceptible to burning.
Do I need an appointment?
Appointments are highly recommended, although I do take walk-ins. Please be early or on time to avoid losing your appointment. If you're unable to keep an appointment please call within 24 hours before hand if possible.
Are there any age restrictions?
18 and older for a Brazilian. I do offer other waxing services to people under 18 though. I would just need your parent needs to fill out a parental consent form. If you are under 16 and wish to have a bikini wax, your parent must be in the room during the waxing.
Is it alright to bring my child?
I Love Kids–but due to the nature of my line of work, they are not allowed in the Spa Area. I ask that you please leave them at home and thank you in advance for your understanding.
