TYPES OF HAIR REMOVAL

*HARD WAX

This can only be heated via the pot method. Hard waxes tend to come in solid colors and are blended with rosins for slower setting times, giving the therapist a little more control with the removal. In some cases, plasticides are added for additional flexibility and control. Hard waxes are ideal for Brazilian bikini procedures, as well as for underarms and facial waxing. Hard waxes run at a lower temperature than soft waxes and, as they are applied, they dry gently, shrinking around the hair shaft, resulting in successful hair removal with little to no irritation. Hard waxes are removed without a waxing strip, hence the name Strip-less.

Advantages:

  • Long-lasting results
  • Fast and effective
  • No strips applied
  • heated a lower temperature
  • Little to no irritation
  • This will eventually retard the hair from regrowth on a more permanent basis. Disadvantages:

Can be slightly painful

  • Longer wax appointment times
  • Can get costly if applied by a professional
  • Will not pull away all of the hairs in a single strip, a repeat strip will be necessary
  • Not recommended to wax until body hair grows to a certain length, 1/8 inch

*SOFT WAX

Waxing frequency will vary but, in general, wax every three to six weeks to maintain smoothness.

*SUGARING

Yes, sugaring does involve the use of real sugar. Specifically, a mixture of sugar, lemon, and water are mixed to create a sticky paste that clings to the hair, effectively removing them without the skin. It is similar to waxing but many report that it is less uncomfortable and gentler on the skin. The method of applying (molding) and removing the sugar paste is crucial to ensuring proper hair removal. When done correctly, sugaring works to pull hair out at the root.
