Opening its doors in the heart of Paphos, Cyprus, in January 1999, Rozita Karslidou’s Beauty Salon has become a sanctuary for those seeking premium beauty treatments at affordable prices. Offering professional waxing services ranging from 10 to 25 euros depending on the body part, the salon is renowned for its expert touch and welcoming atmosphere.

If you’re contemplating your first waxing experience, you might be feeling a mixture of anticipation and nerves. Fret not, as we’ve compiled a list of essential waxing tips for first-timers to help you prepare for your journey towards smoother skin.


Finding a Trustworthy Wax Professional

Choosing a good waxer is as important as selecting a hairstylist. The person you entrust with your waxing needs should be:

  • Licensed and trained in waxing procedures.
  • Committed to maintaining a clean and sanitary environment.
  • Uncompromising in following hygiene protocols like changing the paper lining on the waxing table between sessions and avoiding unsanitary practices like double-dipping.


Preparing for Your Wax Appointment

A few simple steps can make your waxing experience smoother and more comfortable:

Hair length: Ensure your hair is at least a quarter-inch long for the best waxing results. If you’re used to shaving, stop using the razor at least five days before your appointment.

Pain Management: Over-the-counter painkillers like Tylenol taken about 30 minutes before the appointment can help ease discomfort.

Skin Prep: Exfoliating your skin before your wax can make the process cleaner. Moreover, avoid alcohol and caffeine on the day of your appointment as they can increase skin sensitivity and pain during the wax.


The Waxing Experience Itself

The thought of pain is often a concern for first-time waxers. The pain level can vary depending on individual tolerance and the quality of wax used. Rest assured, experienced professionals at Rozita Karslidou’s Beauty Salon use high-quality wax to minimize discomfort and provide a more comfortable experience.


Communicating with Your Aesthetician


Open communication with your aesthetician is key to a successful waxing session. Here’s how you can help:

  • Clearly express your preferences. For example, if you’d like a full Brazilian or just the bikini line.
  • Use the restroom beforehand.
  • Participate in off-topic conversation with your aesthetician to distract yourself during the process.


Aftercare and Future Appointments

After your waxing session, your aesthetician will provide aftercare instructions and recommendations for maintaining your smooth skin. Here are some questions you might want to ask:

What do you recommend for aftercare?

  1. Is there anything additional you would recommend I do before next time?
  2. What products should I avoid before/after the wax?
  3. How can I get the best results?
  4. How can I save on my services?.

Remember, you’re not expected to twist into pretzel-like yoga poses during your session. Simple positions like the ‘butterfly leg’ will suffice. And above all, communicate if you’re uncomfortable at any point – your comfort is their priority.

Whether it’s your first waxing experience or your fiftieth, Rozita Karslidou’s Beauty Salon in Paphos is committed to making your visit as comfortable and rewarding as possible.
