Waxing Successful -Tips on Improving Client Experience
When it comes to smooth and efficient hair removal, waxing has proven to be one of the best methods available. To make sure that you get the best results when it comes to your grooming experience, we came up with a few suggestions on how to be sure everything goes as smoothly as possible:
Let It Grow…
One of the common problems clients have in regards to waxing is that they haven’t actually given the hair enough time to grow out to get a proper servicing performed. The hair needs to be long enough for the wax to take a firm hold on it and remove it from the skin. Not enough hair and the wax will fail to remove it properly.
…But Not Too Much
You also want to make sure that you don’t allow the hair to grow too long, as this could bring a significantly increased amount of pain to the removal process. As your waxing professional how long hair should be before you come in. Hair needs to be a quarter inch and not longer than a half inch for best results.
Once the waxing is complete, the next thing that you need to do (and it is of the utmost importance) is to establish and stick to a good aftercare regimen. This is the time when bumps, redness, and ingrown hairs are most common. You can minimize or even avoid this altogether by cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing regularly.
Tips for Women Going to the Spa for Waxing
If it’s your first time in any spa, or simply your first time in a new spa, there are also a few suggestions that we can offer to help you make sure that you get the best experience possible.
Here are our top three:
1. Discuss the Best Wax with Your Professional
Your waxing professional is like your doctor, you should be telling them everything! Well, maybe not everything. But you should talk with them about your skin type, medications and sensitivity.
2. Just Relax
Look, we know there is going to be a little discomfort. Just take it easy, relax your muscles, and focus on the sleek, smooth look you’re getting.
Tips for Women at Home
We even have a few helpful tips for those who prefer to do this on their own:
1. Always Do a Patch Test
Pick a small area and test both the wax, and the stripping paper. Wait at least 24 hours to see if there is any kind of reaction.
2. Start with an Easy Area
A common mistake is going straight to the more difficult areas like the bikini line. Start with something simpler like legs.
3. Remove the Wax Quickly
Something that many at-home waxing practitioners do is taking the wax off too slowly. This reduces the effectiveness of the procedure, as well as increases the pain.
