Taking a break from waxing in the winter months is a big no no. It's the perfect time to get into waxing and definitely keeping up your routine.

.

Even if you leave a little longer between treatments, keep it up and don't reach for the razor or hair removal creams. Regular waxing weakens the follicles as hair has three stages of growth; anagen, catagen and telegen. It's best to wax when your hair is in the catagen stage of growth. This is difficult to determine as we are working blind and can actually see the roots, but after a few waxing sessions it becomes clear as to the growth pattern and you can train the hair to suit your scheduled appointments over time.

Waxing in winter preps growth cycles for the summer months. If you start waxing every four weeks, all your hair will eventually start growing at the same time instead of beginning in various growth stages. By starting waxing, or continuing your waxing during the winter, you will get ahead and train the hair to grow at the same stage. This will lead to longer times between treatments eventually.

The more you get waxed, the less it hurts. The root is removed when you wax, but when you shave you are only cutting the hair off at the root. If you take a long break from waxing during the winter it may start to hurt again. Waxing also gives the legs a good exfoliation leaving the skin smoother for longer with no more stubble, shaving or razor burn for those sensitive legs or other areas. There are different types of wax we can use from strip wax to hot wax for extremely sensitive skin. The wax we use on each client can be determined at your appointment, and a patch test is required for those undergoing this treatment for the first time.

Having your under arm waxed is becoming more and more popular. It may be a little sore initially, but you soon get used to it. It's amazing how fast the growth slows down, and there is no shadow left behind under the arms. It's one of the areas that reacts quite quickly to waxing. Some clients only have to wax under arms every five to six weeks as it gets lighter after a very short time.

I would highly recommend starting your waxing journey in the winter for the best results as you're less likely to get caught out if the sun shines and the shorts come out.

The Brazilian bikini wax is as popular as ever and the next most popular is the half leg wax.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
