What is the difference between Hot Wax and Traditional Waxing?2019-08-14T18:17:36+01:00

“Traditional Wax” is also known as “Strip Wax” where the wax is applied, a paper strip placed on top and then pulled off removing the paper, wax and unwanted hair.  Whereas “Hot Wax” does not use paper strips, the hot wax is applied to the area, allowed to cool slightly and then the wax itself is pulled off removing the unwanted hair.

Typically strip wax is used for larger areas as it is much quicker to apply and remove. It’s almost always used for areas like legs, arms and back. It’s generally better for thicker or less sensitive skin as it grips strongly to both the hair and skin. Hot wax is more suitable for waxing sensitive areas or thicker hair. Which is why it’s often the wax of choice for Bikini, Brazilian and Hollywood waxes, underarm wax and sometimes facial waxing too. As the wax is left on the skin for up to a minute, the heat opens the pores and hair follicles allowing the hair to wax out much more easily. This should theoretically be less painful.

Why do I pay a deposit?2019-08-05T20:32:26+01:00

Sadly we have to ask for a deposit because some clients were not turning up to appointments.  All the therapists at Clarity House are self employed and do not earn when someone doesn’t show for an appointment so we now ask for a deposit to cover for this time.  Deposits can be refunded if your appointment is cancelled up to 24 hours before your appointment.  You will lose your deposit if you do not cancel before 24 hours of your appointment.  Please let us know if you cannot make your appointment, we are always happy to reschedule for free when you give us more than 24 hours notice.

In a word, yes.  You will need a patch test for each of the different brands that we use as they all contain different ingredients.  Your health is our number one priority and we take patch tests seriously at Clarity House, if you do not get one we will not do the treatment.  You only need to get the patch test once for each treatment and they are FREE.


How long do massages last at Clarity House?2019-07-16T12:44:12+01:00

When you book a massage at Clarity House you book a time slot of either 60 minutes or 90 minutes.  This time includes your consultation time (5 minutes), time to get undressed at the start (5 minutes) and time to get dressed again at the end (5 minutes).  Generally you will have 45 minutes or 75 minutes hands on time with your therapist.  This is different for each individual as your consultation may take longer if there are complications.


Customer Review – Dermaplaning

Today I had Deluxe Dermaplaning done by Mhairi at Clarity House and wow my skin looks fabulous, taking my skin from dull and grey to bright and healthy looking I would even venture to say its made me look younger, my wrinkle lines look less visible. It removes that peach fuzz that traps so much of the dead skin cells, everyday grime and make up residue and has left my skin so much smoother with a lovely healthy glow. It also makes skincare products ...
