Hey, why I can’t find the Miss Fox Gisborne studio?
An increasingly full Napier studio means Miss Fox can no longer commit to traveling to Gizzy for regular visits. Making this decision certainly hurt my heart – Gizzy is where the Miss fox concept began. But alas, this is my stop. However, in true Miss Fox fashion - I’ve done my research and I’ve got ya back… I highly recommend the incredible ladies at Skin Deep – these talented women use the same use the same Henna + Lash Lift systems as Miss Fox.
Hold up – is Miss Fox only for the ladies?
Look, we’re not gonna lie – most people through the doors identify as female, but bro brows and manscaping are a real thing and Miss Fox holds space for the blokes. There’s always room in the studio for you, too.
Welcome to an awkward free zone – Back + Chest + Shoulder + Male Brazilian waxing is hella common and nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s the Miss Fox promise that there’s not a frilly pink pillow to be seen or whale-song to be heard. We’ve got your back!

The ethos here is all about responsible and ethical beauty. Brow + Lash + Body products that are kind to people and the planet. Products that are simple. Slipping seamlessly into your everyday.

What are Henna Brows?
Henna is a natural plant-based alternative for colouring brow hair and creating temporary skin-stain.
How long do Henna Brows last?
The stain lasts on the skin for 2-10 days to create a bolder, more defined brow. Colour in the brow hair lasts 4-6 weeks and grows out like a permanent hair colour.
What brand of Henna do you use, and why?
Miss Fox uses Elleebana Henna Colour. Henna naturally produces warm-tones but Elleebana includes a range of colours that I can custom-blend to suit any skin and hair tones.
What are the benefits of Henna Brows?
- Ingredients that nourish and thicken the existing brow hair to strengthen and protect.
- Reduces flakiness and stimulates hair growth
- Lasts longer than a regular brow tint
- Amazing coverage on grey hair, and Amla extract to halt premature greying.
- Skin stain disguises gaps in overplucked or receding brows
Is Henna Brow colour suitable for microbladed brows?
Yes. Henna Brows are great for microbladed or tattooed brows that have lightened or faded. The Henna attaches itself to the pigment and brightens the appearance of microbladed strokes.
What's the difference between Henna Brows + Brow Lamination?
Other than epic brows that last the distance, it's kinda chalk and cheese. Henna Brows is a premium long-lasting colour, whereas Brow Lamination is all about creating the illusion of fuller + fluffy brows without the commitment of invasiveness of brow tattooing. Brow Lamination is kinda like a perm for your brows and sets them in shape for 6-8 weeks. But instead of curls your brow hair will stay brushed and lifted upwards and sit in a beautiful shape. You still receive a brow colour with Lamination, but it's not Henna.
How long does a regular Brow Tint last?
Most people find the colour of a regular brow tint fades out over 2-3 weeks.
What's the best brow + lash duo treatment?
Book yo'self the MF Works. You'll wake up ready to face each day with this fab treatment option. Lash Lift + Lash Colour + Brow Shape + Brow Lamination + Brow Colour. It's a firm fav in the Miss Fox studio.
What is a Lash Lift?
A lash lift is a popular treatment for good reason. Miss Fox uses the ever popular Elleebana products to lift, define, colour and curl what you’ve been blessed with. Your lashes appear longer, thicker and darker. Goals, right!?!
How long does a Lash Lift last?
A lash lift lasts 4-8 weeks and can be repeated every 6 weeks. The lash lift curl is retained even after showering and swimming. Are you ready for lush lashes?
Lash Lift or Lash Extensions?
Lash lift every time. Let’s work with what you’ve been blessed with. A lash lift is less maintenance and less damaging than eyelash extensions, as it works 100% with your natural lashes.
Do I have to have a Lash Lift if I just want added colour?
Short answer - Nope.
Your lashes can be expertly coloured without a Lash Lift. Miss Fox can custom blend the colour to suit your eye colour and skin tone.
How long does a Lash Colour last?
Typically, a Lash Colour lasts 4-6 weeks – depending on your colouring and how much time you spend outside.
How often should I book a waxing appointment?
We recommend you book regular waxing appointments every 4-6 weeks. Regular appointments mean a quicker and more comfortable wax. And, over time – your smooth bits will last longer.
What wax do you use?
Girl, don’t you worry – here at MF we only use the best in the biz. Caron Lab is the wax of choice around here, it’s a superior quality wax with the best ingredients – made in Australia. Wax is not just wax! Cheap, inferior products with poor quality ingredients is the main cause of skin irritation. We’re not here for that.
Is sharing wax safe?
Oh no, we don’t do that! MF has a strict no double-dipping policy. It’s like double dipping chips and dip with a group of strangers. Yuck! Using the same spatula in a wax pot multiple times is not only gross, it’s a huge health risk.
What is a Bikini wax?
A Miss Fox Bikini Wax waxes any pubic hair that sprouts from the crease of your leg to your inner thigh.
What is an extended Bikini wax?
A Miss Fox Extended Bikini Wax reaches a little higher than a Bikini wax – going an inch or two further inwards without reaching the labia or the back.
What is a Brazilian?
A Brazilian wax removes all your pubic hair – front, underneath and right to the back (MF will remove those little tail feathers that you can’t . quite . reach.) You’re welcome to leave a strip or triangle at the front if fully nude isn’t your thing.
Should you trim before a Brazilian Wax?
Nope, no need. Not only is it our job but, the longer the hair, the easier it is to grip the wax and properly remove it from the root.
Does a Brazilian Wax hurt?
Well, it certainly doesn’t tickle. But, with an experienced waxing specialist (that’s me) and the Miss Fox technique it doesn’t have to be painful. Girl, you’re in safe hands.
Can you have a Brazilian Wax during your period?
Absolutely. You might be a little more Sensitive-Sally during your period – especially the first few days of menstruation – so it might pay to leave it towards the end. But, there’s no need to cancel your appointment if Aunt Flo turns up.
Can the men of Napier book a Male Brazilian Wax?
Ab-so-lute-ly! Our resident Waxing Ninja, Marijke, is an expert in male hair removal. Treatments include Full Back + Shoulders, Chest, Male Brazilian (beginner, regular + top-up) and Male Speedo.
What are Hairy bits?
They’re those pesky little bits you can’t wait to get rid of. Think lip, chin, ears + nose, toes + snail trail. Yip, Miss Fox tames those too. Hairy bits become smooth bits – yes please!
