There are two types of wax used by estheticians: hard wax and soft wax (sometimes called strip wax). Many estheticians use just one or the other, but I prefer to use a combination of both since each type of wax is strong in certain areas of the body.
Strip wax is a soft wax that you apply and then remove with a disposable non-woven waxing strip. Soft wax can be used on all areas of the body, and it is my wax of choice for multiple areas, including: Brazilian, bikini, arms, legs, back, brows, and upper lip.
Currently, my favorite soft wax is Satin Smooth organic honey wax with Argan oil. Honey is a natural antibacterial and the Argan oil is hydrating for the skin and is formulated to use on sensitive skin with course to medium hair. I like using this product because its versatile and provides a quick release when waxing while leaving the skin silky smooth and soft.
Hard wax is better suited for areas such as the underarms and the nooks and crannies of a Brazilian. Hard wax does not use a strip, but instead of creates its own. Once it has set, the wax itself is used as a strip to remove the hair. Hard wax is great for areas on the body that perspire quickly when being waxed.
I often apply baby powder on warm areas before applying—I find that the application and release of the wax is smoother and more comfortable for the client this way. I also use Jasmine oil to form a lipid barrier underneath all of my waxes. This creates a light barrier between the skin and the wax which allows for a quicker and smoother release while also lessening the discomfort and allowing for a faster waxing experience.
A large majority of my waxing is done in twenty minutes or less , so you can look forward to being in and out in a short time,with little discomfort. I always provide thorough after care instructions once the service is complete.
