I would recommend Green Orchid for all of their services. They are very flexible with the appointment hours and always try to accommodate the requests. The communication is always easy no matter the channel (email or phone). The treatment are always done to a high standard and Magda and Ana are very nice.

I absolutely love this beauty salon! Went there the first time last month. Everything super uncomplicated and I felt very welcome from the very first minute! I was a little nervous because I never got a waxing treatment before but there was no reason for that at all. The result was absolutely great!!!! I couldn’t ask for more!
I directly made a new appointment for this month and I can’t wait to go back!

This was the first salon I tried for my waxing when I moved to Cork and I’m glad I did, the staff are professional, friendly and accommodating, the prices are reasonable and it’s conveniently located in the city as well . I’ve yet to try their other treatments but I’m sure I will at some point! Thank you all.

Frequently Asked Questions

More about waxing.

It’s a type of treatment of hair removal which removes the theme from the root.

The treatment last from 4 to 6 weeks depending on how fast they growth for each person.

New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle.

Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including:

  • eyebrows,
  • face,
  • pubic area (called bikini wax),
  • legs,
  • arms,
  • back, abdomen and feet.

There are many types of body wax suitable for removing unwanted hair.

Body waxing involves using a sticky wax and strip of paper or cloth to pull hair from the root.

This is the ideal hair removal technique to keep an area hairless for long periods of time.

It can take three to six weeks for waxed hair to begin to resurface again. Hair in areas that have previously been waxed also is known to grow back finer and thinner, especially compared to hair that has been shaved with a razor.

Hair removal treatment is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth.

This removes the wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth. Home hair removal  kits have become increasingly popular over the years. A hard wax which does not require the cloth paper strip is sometimes used on the more sensitive areas.

A light oil such as baby oil can be applied to those sensitive areas before waxing is applied to reduce wax adhesion to the skin.

It is desirable to not cover the genitals with a modesty towel when using oil since the towel can absorb the protective oil, lessening its effectiveness.

We cannot wax you if you fall under any of the following categories:

  • You have any kind of sunburn, laser burn, pustules or breakouts on the area to be waxed.
  • You are diabetic. However, we can wax you if you supply a doctor’s note saying it’s okay for you to wax.
  • If your bottom or other private parts are not clean (tmi?) they are not sanitary and based on the situation it is at our discretion whether to continue the service or send you to the loo with a wet wipe.

Please freshen up before your appointment. Although we always prep the skin with an antiseptic before we wax, we cannot apply wax to skin with any debris on it. We like to run a clean ship!!

When you request body waxing, you will need to choose a salon that makes it in a professional way.
The area to be treated will be cleaned, trimmed and then waxed using soft warm wax.
An applicator is used to apply and spread warm wax over the skin, a portion of skin at a time.
Once the wax is spread, a piece of cloth or paper is pressed over it and then is quickly removed from the hairline.
Hair will be removed from the roots and therefore the area will be free from hair for at least 4 weeks.

Pain thresholds are different for each woman but our beauty therapists are trained in techniques that deliver 80% less pain approach when performing intimate body wax. If you are a beginner to waxing there may be an element of shock, but it gets easier with every waxing as the hair thins. After all, many of our clients keep coming back

If this is your first time to get waxed, a patch test is used to find out if you are allergic to wax before it is applied.
You also need to be on time for your appointment since this is a usually a special procedure. It is a given that you will be completely exposing yourself when you ask for waxing but this is not the time to feel awkward.
Professionals are experienced in this kind of hair removal treatment and will not hesitate to help you with any concerns.

After a client’s first waxing, the results can last 3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual’s hair re-growth rate. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week.

  1. Exfoliate a few days before waxing. …
  2. Grow hair to around a quarter-inch long, and don’t shave. …
  3. Take pain relievers if you need to. …
  4. Don’t do it on or near your period. …
  5. Use aloe or Aquaphor to soothe any irritation. …
  6. Don’t exfoliate, swim, or sunbathe for 48 hours afterward. …
  7. Avoid tight clothing. …
  8. Keep it up.

Currently, there are two widely used types of wax; hard wax and soft wax.

Hard wax is used on more sensitive areas; when doing Brazilian wax, bikini line, Californian wax, Hollywood waxing and soft wax are used for leg waxing, face, and underarms waxing.

Areas that can take more tug and pull on them.

One of the most common ingredients in all waxes is Pine Rosin, which is an ingredient when added with others allows the hardening and bonding of the wax to not only your skin but the hair follicle and paper as well.

It is at a time a quick and cost-efficient method of removing unwanted hair, especially on the face. Currently, there are two widely used types of wax; hard wax and soft wax.

Hard wax is used on more sensitive areas; like the lips of your vagina when doing Brazilian and soft wax is used for legs, face, and underarms.

One of the most common ingredients in all waxes is Pine Rosin, which is an ingredient when added with others allows the hardening and bonding of the wax to not only your skin but the hair follicle and paper as well.

Waxing is applicable and much appropriate for people who are busy with their everyday life. Most of them do not have time to monitor themselves even the growth of their hair. Is more effective than shaving since it removes the hair even the root of it.

You can obtain waxing for at least once or twice a month. Shaving is good for people who have time to monitor themselves every day. Some of them consider shaving as part of their everyday tasks.

Your hair should be at least a ¼ inch long (about the length of a grain of rice), to allow the wax to grip around the hair. If it is your first time waxing, then we recommend you refrain from shaving for at least two weeks before your reservation.

If you between waxing you should wait three to four weeks.  And though the time does vary between waxes, depending on how quickly or coarsely the hair grows back. It’s best to wait around a month.

If you have coarse hair it should be closer to 1/2-inch for the first few waxes. Once the hair becomes finer it can be waxed at a shorter length. If your hair is longer, I recommend trimming the area and booking your waxing appointment for one to two weeks later.

Yes of course.
Just know the facts
a) you will be more sensitive,
b) you must wear a clean tampon.

Pop some painkillers  20 minutes before.
It may help.

Yes.
However, please clear this with your doctor. Just like waxing when you are menstruating, being pregnant will leave you more sensitive during and after your wax.
It is best to wait until the second trimester to wax.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to perform a body waxing on you if you are 5 months pregnant or more and have not ever received a body waxing, or have not been waxed for over a year.  It is just too much for skin that is already sensitive and engorged.

It’s best not to.
Your skin will be too sensitive. Remember, waxing is an exfoliation. However, airbrush tanning after a wax is fine.

A lot of people choose and are liking it because organizations such as spas and salons offer this kind of service. It helped in the rise of its popularity. Waxing kits are also taking center stage and are available to use at home.

It became also a factor why this become a household name. Treatment is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin.

A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth. Home waxing kits have become increasingly popular over the years.

A hard wax which does not require the cloth paper strip is sometimes used on the more sensitive areas. A light oil such as baby oil can be applied to those sensitive areas before wax is applied to reduce wax adhesion to the skin.

It is desirable to not cover the genitals with a modesty towel when using oil since the towel can absorb the protective oil, lessening its effectiveness.

Application of Egg Oil for a few days post waxing can help moisturise the skin and reduce inflammation, pain or growth of bacteria.
