Salon Professional Wax

  • What is waxing & how does it work?

  • Although we explain the normal process of using hot wax you will notice that our hot wax is pain free and very easy to use!

    Waxing is a popular depilatory method where hair is removed from the roots for longer lasting results. Wax is applied to the skin and clings to the hairs. When wax is removed, the hairs are stuck to the wax, leaving your skin smooth.  Hair regrowth becomes softer and results last longer than other forms of hair removal.

    How long does waxing keep my skin hair free?

  • Waxing can keep your skin hair free for up to 3-5 weeks; however results can vary with each person due to different hair types and how frequently you wax.

    What is the difference between Hard Wax and Strip Wax?

  • Hard Wax (Salon Wax or Salon Wax Sensitive) is a peel off wax applied thickly on the skin and removed with your fingertips. It is used for waxing sensitive & delicate areas such as eyebrows, upper lip, facial waxing, underarms, bikini line & Brazilian waxing.

    Strip Wax (Warm Wax) is applied thinly and removed with a waxing strip; this is great for larger areas of skin such as the legs, arms, back, chest and some facial waxing.

    How do I prepare my skin before waxing?

  • Always test a small part of the area to be waxed 24hrs before to ensure no skin irritation occurs. Hair growth needs to be at least 2mm from the skins surface so the wax can adhere to the hair. Longer hair should be trimmed to 5mm before waxing. Area to be treated must be clean, dry and free from any oils and creams. If your wax isn’t picking up all the hairs it may be because there are too many dead skin cells that the wax is sticking to rather than the hair. Exfoliating the skin daily will remove theses dead skin cells and let the wax adhere to the hair properly.

  • Should I shower before I wax?

    No, always avoid waxing immediately after a shower or hot bath. The warm water will open your pores but it will also soften your skin making it more likely to bruise or become irritated when waxed. Wait an hour or two before commencing your waxing treatment.

    How do I know my wax is the right working temperature?
    Wax is at an ideal consistency and temperature when it resembles honey and glides easily over your skin. After heating your wax, test it on the inside of your wrist before use. The wax should not be uncomfortably hot on your skin. If it feels too hot, leave it cool for a couple of minutes and test again on your wrist. If wax is not spreading easily and has a stringy texture, it is too cool and will need a bit more heating time.

  • Does waxing hurt?
    The amount of discomfort experienced when waxing depends on the individual. Waxing offers an affordable way to keep skin smooth for longer periods than shaving so you don’t have to wax as often. A tingling sensation can be felt immediately after waxing, this is the tiny nerve endings in your hair follicles reacting to the removal of the hair, and this will pass in seconds. After regular waxing the discomfort lessens because the hair follicle becomes weaker. However if you are new to waxing you may experience more discomfort but as they say, no pain, no gain! Follow these helpful tips to lessen the discomfort.

    • Take an over the counter pain-relief tablet an hour before waxing
    • Exfoliating the day before you plan to wax as this will ease the pain by eliminating dead skin cells
    • If female, avoid waxing within a week before your period, this is when you’re extra-sensitive to pain
    • Avoid caffeine, salt and alcohol as they make your skin extra sensitive
    • Press on your skin firmly after removing the wax
    • Mind over matter! Don’t psych yourself out about the pain. Take deep breaths and realise that it’s nothing to worry about. The discomfort experienced is very short and will be quickly forgotten as you enjoy your long lasting smooth skin
    • Waxing with a friend will help distract you from the discomfort & they can assist you with your waxing technique.
