EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BRAZILIAN WAXING People have different stands when it comes to hair on their bodies. Things like “No Shave November” is there for those who love facial hair. However, some people get irritated by any hair that grows below their eyes. In particular, Brazilian Waxing is the removal of hair (mostly around the pubic area) with special wax which ensures that no hair is left behind. After a Brazilian Waxing session you will be bald as a newborn baby. Or rather like a plucked chicken. But it’s all good, who wants hair on her most intimate part anyway? Brazilian waxing is mostly famous among women than men. But this doesn’t mean that men should shy off from getting waxed. Nothing can go wrong with smooth and silky skin. Basic things you need to know about Brazilian waxing: IT GETS BETTER WITH TIME Waxing is all about plucking hair from its hair follicles. Well, whoever said that beauty is pain, there was a high chance he/she was about to get a bikini wax. The procedure is painful but all for a worthy course and, it gets better with time. If you get a bikini wax regularly your hair follicle becomes weak and this means that it won’t hurt that much when the hair is plucked. It is recommended that you get a bikini wax at least once every 3 weeks. HAVE IT GROW TO THE RIGHT SIZE For your hair to be waxed effectively it has to be no less than ¼ of an inch and no more than ½ of an inch. If your hair is then than ¼ of an inch you will be asked to go back home and have the hair grow to the right size. To most people especially if it is the first time it can get pretty awkward. I mean, you will have to get naked spread out your legs good to have the area around the labia waxed as well as the butt cheeks. As weird and awkward as it might get, always have in mind that the person attending to you is a professional and most probably have seen way a lot more. TAKE A SHOWER This is obvious, but worth being reminded of anyway. Before going for a bikini wax see to it that you take a shower. For reasons known best by all of us on this particular day thoroughly clean the area to be waxed. AVOID SEX OR ANY WORKOUT The skin around the waxed area gets very sensitive after the procedure. For this reason, it is recommended that one should abstain from sex for at least 36 hours to allow time for the skin to heal. You should also not engage in any vigorous activities that will make you sweaty down there. Also, wear loose clothes a skirt will do the trick and some not so tight underwear. THE TIME OF THE MONTHMATTERS Don’t book an appointment for a bikini wax when you are just a week to your periods. During this time, the skin is very sensitive and will make the whole procedure uncomfortable and very painful. WHY ASTRA MEDISPA IS THE BEST PLACE TO GET A BRAZILIAN WAX?

Some Simple Tips for makeup and cosmetics
Great eyebrows can make an individual’s confidence soar. While a handful of clients walk through a spa’s doors with a clear idea of how they want their eyebrows to look, most clients are expecting the professional to provide direction on shape and shade, which makes perfect sense if you think about it. After all, we’re the experts, right? But, what if eyebrows are an add-on to the services you offer and not your primary focus? It can be intimidating to know clients are literally placing their eyebrows in your hands.
With the following three-step best eyebrows blueprint, allow me to make the process of selecting the perfect shape and shade for your clients infinitely easier.
DETERMINE THE CLIENT’S FACE SHAPE
This is the first step in landing on a great eyebrow look, so take your time with this. There are five core face shapes, each with their own characteristics:
Heart: The chin is pointed and the forehead is the widest part of the face.
Oval: The face is balanced, with very little width difference between the forehead and chin.
Rectangle or Oblong: The face is longer than it is wide.
Square: The face is basically as wide as it is long and the jaw is slightly angled.
Round: The cheekbones are the widest part of the face and the chin is curved.
WORK TOGETHER TO SELECT THE IDEAL EYEBROW LOOK
While this is not written in stone, you and your client may want to tweak and customize based on how lush or sparse their existing eyebrows are and the image they want to project. These are what I generally consider to be the most flattering eyebrow shapes for each type of face:
Heart: A slightly rounded arch.
A low arch will create a more natural look and a higher arch will elongate a shorter face.
Oval: A soft, angled arch that shoots straight up at 45 degrees, then gently curves down.
Rectangle or Oblong: A soft arch, with a wide distance between the eyebrows. Ideally, eyebrows will not exceed the inner corner of the eye.
Angular, with a lifted arch and lengthened tail, which will help balance the face.
Go with more of an arched look, rather than rounded. Adding a defined arch instantly gives a lifted, more elongated look, which can be really beautiful.
DEFINE AND BEAUTIFY WITH COLOR
Subtle shading enhances every eyebrow, even the most full and lush. But, since it isn’t always easy to know which eyebrow colour will be the most flattering for a client, I’ll share this incredibly easy insider tip: match it to the client’s hair roots. This will all but guarantee a flattering effect, lending just the right amount of definition and polish. Another insider tip is to shade with a dark brown and not a black pencil if the client’s eyebrows are black. The black on black will most likely be too dark. If a client is a blonde, however, you’ll most likely want to go a shade darker than their roots. This will avoid the washed-out effect that no client wants and add some visual pop and impact. This is, however, the preference of the client, so it’s important to ask.
See how easy it is to select the right shape and shade for your clients? Now get out there and create some serious eyebrow magic.
