How Far Before the Wedding Should I Wax?


When to wax depends on how often you usually wax, how fast your hair grows, and how sensitive your skin is. The first rule of thumb is to never wax any area of your face the day before your wedding. You don’t want to risk having red bumps or blemishes marring your flawless look. Most experts suggest waiting until the week before your wedding day to do your final wax.

As for your bikini area, if you’ve never waxed before, make sure to do a test run at least three months in advance. Ask your esthetician to recommend a schedule so you can see how many days it'll take for redness to go away. Most brides find that waxing three to four days before the honeymoon leaves ample time for irritation to subside.
