Dispelling Three Waxing Myths

Jan Hillenmeyer | August 29, 2013 | 3:34 PM

Malynda Vigliotti, known to her loyal clients as Boom Boom, owns the boom Boom Brow Bar in New York City and has made it her mission to make waxing (especially brow services), fun, fast and affordable.

Boom Boom does want to bust three myths that persist about waxing services.

True or False? Hair grows back thicker and darker after waxing.

FALSE: Repeated waxing actually reduces the amount of hair that grows back and, after a while, follicles stop producing hair altogether. Hair also appears thinner because it does not have the blunt edge that threading or shaving can leave.

True or False? Never wax above the brow.

FALSE: Anywhere hair grows around the brow is fair game and fine-tuning the area above the brow is actually the key to shaping a beautiful arch.

True or False: Waxing is bad for skin.

FALSE: Waxing is actually the gentlest form of hair removal because the warm wax softens skin and follicles so hair can be removed from the base/bulb. A good waxing product (like Boom Boom Flash Wax) contains moisturizers and healing properties for a smooth experience, even on sensitive skin.  Visit
