"I’M HARRY, NOT HAIRY"
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If your skin is damaged or burned, we will not wax that area. Other contraindications are varicose veins and warts. In case of diabetes, you can indicate this prior to treatment and the skin that may be thinner will be taken into account.
If you are allergic to colophony you cannot wax at Mr. Adam. This allergy is also known as brown patch allergy. Colophony is a vegetable compound extracted from the resin of conifers of the Pinus family of trees. Also with medication use of Retin A - Renova - Differin - Isotretioin - Roaccutane there is no possibility for waxing.
HOW LONG SHOULD THE HAIR BE?
To be able to wax, the hair must be at least half a centimeter long. The maximum length for waxing is 1.5 centimeters. If too long, please trim at home beforehand.
DOES THE WAXING HURT
It can be a bit sensitive the first time and it will never be completely painless. But due to the professional wax in combination with the technique we use at Mr. Adam it will be as fast and painless as possible.
HOW LONG DO THE HAIRS STAY AWAY?
You will have soft, smooth skin for two to three weeks. After that, it is important to let the hair grow for about two to three weeks before your next waxing and not to shave in between.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER WAXING?
Up to 48 hours after the wax treatment, it is important to keep the skin clean with an antibacterial product and to avoid heat and friction. So take a lukewarm shower, wait two days before exercising (good excuse), try not to expose the treated areas to the sun for 48 hours. It is also wise not to wear tight clothing after waxing.

Waxing, this is how we work:
First of all, the wax is heated in the heater. The hard wax melts into a liquid substance. The ideal temperature is just below 40 degrees Celsius. After the skin is cleansed, the wax is applied to the skin. Then the wax is removed with a quick movement. After the area to be treated is free of hair, your skin will be treated with after wax care.
