To know more about how long does waxing last, firstly, we need to know about the stages of hair.
The Stages of Hair Growth
There are 3 stages of hair: Growing stage; Resting stage; Transitional stage. Normally approx 90% of the hairs you see on your skin are in the growth phase; 9% is in the resting phase; 1% is in the transitional phase. This means when you go for waxing there have some hairs underneath the skin growing but not yet reached to surface.
