When it comes to scoring smooth skin, waxing is a popular pick. There are heaps of reasons we promote waxing over shaving, especially for sensitive areas. A professional wax service not only lasts longer, but simply looks and feels better!
At Hollywood Nails we offer both facial and body waxing services. Whether you’re brand new to waxing or a bit of a fanatic, we’d like to go through the best practice to prep for your next appointment.
Prep the Skin
Any form of depilatory service requires some prep to make sure your skin stays comfortable and cared for. Before your next brow wax, be sure to lightly exfoliate and moisturise for the few days leading up to your service. Healthy and hydrated skin allows wax to grab the hair, rather than the skin. The same prep methods should be taken for your bikini area. However, make sure you avoid moisturising the morning of your service, as it could interfere with the grip of the wax.

Are you looking to try out a new nail shape? Sick of square and over oval? We’ve got the perfect shape for you: The trendy coffin nail!
We’ve recently seen this glam shape on Lily Allen, Kylie Jenner and Rihanna- just to name a few! Coffin nails are perfect for those with naturally long nails or fans of a tapered nail tip.
This shape has all bold beauty worthy of celeb status, without the crazy upkeep of stiletto! It’s basically a stiletto with a tapered edge. This edgy shape gets it’s name from the squared off tip that mimics the shape of a coffin. You may have also heard these nails referred to as ballerina for their resemblance to a ballet slipper!
Over the decades and despite the trends, there are certain nail shades that never go out of style! We are firm believers that you can never go wrong with a classic red!
Much like lipstick, there’s an aura of elegance that comes along with a rich red. Not only does this colour draw attention to your nails, it’s universally flattering with the proper choice of shade!
Fair skin looks best with a blue toned red! Fair skin tends to have cooler tones which are beautifully brought out by a hint of blue. For medium skin tones that tan easily, look for a coral-y or pink toned red! These shades work well with the warmth of medium skin and bring out beautiful bronze undertones. Olive skin tones are a unique mix of yellow and green undertones. This skin tone has the option to play around with bright bold reds and tomato reds!

Eyelash & Eyebrow Tinting
Not everyone is gifted with perfectly shaped eyebrows. However, you can tint them to give a dramatic effect, balancing your entire face and framing your eyes.

The less time you need to spend on makeup in the morning the better right? Having an instant clean-cut natural look with little or no makeup is #lifegoals. Eyebrow tinting is an absolute game changer.
Regularly getting your eyelashes tinted offers many benefits. Particularly for those who have light coloured lashes, an eyelash tint can create a dramatic look for your eyes. The best part of tinting is its permenancy; not having to brush, touch up and worry about smudging your mascara. Tinting will give you a more polished, coiffed look that is a no-maintenance look.
