Too Young to Wax? The Virgini Bikini Wax Targets Young Teens

Filed under Waxing, Waxing for teenager

It seems as though each year the requests for ‘teen waxing’ grow larger and larger.  It started a few years ago with just a few phone calls, mothers wanting to know if their young teen daughter could get waxed.  This year it was one of our most frequent phone calls at the spa.  Many spas are now offering what they call ‘Virgin bikini waxing’, waxing on a young girl, some as young as 8 years old, who has never had any hair removal services performed before. Legally, there is no age limit in NJ for the waxing services, but many NJ day spas may have their own restrictions.

Benefits of Virgin Waxing Services?

You may be wondering why on earth any spa would be willing to wax an 8 year old.  While I disagree with offering waxing services for children under 13 years old, some insist that getting a head start on waxing can help permanently stop hair re-growth in just 2 to 6 sessions.   There is no scientific evidence to back-up this statement, so whether or not you will have your child waxed to ‘save them a lifetime of waxing’ will have to be up to your own discretion.

Dangers of Virgin Waxing Services?

Waxing on anyone, young or old, has its potential dangers. If the waxing service is not performed by a highly trained professional, there is risk of bruising, skin tearing, infection and damaged hair follicles that can not re-grow hair (in areas like the eyebrows this would be especially detrimental).

Younger skin is much more sensitive and delicate.  As such, the skin may be more prone to tears or infection after waxing.  It’s important that if you are considering waxing for your young daughter, you seek the advice and opinion of an expertly trained wax professional.  If you are going to allow your young daughter to get waxing services, you want to make sure that they are performed by an expert in a safe, professional and hygienic environment.
