At Portland Muse Collective and Knot Just Waxin' Studios, we pride ourselves in our inclusivity and customer service. Here are some of our more frequently asked questions. Feel free to head over to our contact page to reach out via email or phone for any questions that you have that we haven't covered here.
Q: I use Retinol? What about acne medication? Medication in general?
A: You should refrain from using waxing as a hair-removal method if you are using Retin-A (currently or in the last 3 months), Acutance (currently or in the past 4 months), other keratolytic medications (that increase skin exfoliation), or are sunburned or recovering from a recent laser peel. Please inform your waxing professional about any and all medication that could affect skin sensitivity.
Q:Is there a referral program?
A: Yes! We have a referral program, and punch card. After your first referral you and your first time buddy get 20%. After your fifth client ya get 50% and after your tenth referral you get100% off! That's right! A free wax!
A: At knot just waxin' the goal is to not have to identify your body. We want hair removal right?
So what's the difference in our body parts... we are just taking away the hair. EVERYONE is welcome. this is a SAFE space that is not just a strictly femme space. We are sex positive - sex industry friendly accept cash and prefer it that way.
Q: Should I trim?
A: If it's longer than a half inch. Or a long piece of jasmine rice. The answer is yes. We are a small buisness and we do our own laundry! Just the answer is yes.
Q:Will my hair grow back thicker?
A: No way! Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles.
In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become sparse and not as coarse. Thats why exfoliating is key
Q: Whats the age limit for a Brazilian?
A: 18. However, guests between the age of 16-18 may receive Bikini with parental consent. All guests under the age of 16 are required to have a parent in the room for the entirety of the service.
