Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face,bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. Strip waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair. Strip wax can also be made DIY using lemon juice, water, sugar and honey.
Hard waxing utilises hard wax also known as hot wax or traditional wax (as opposed to strip wax). In this case, the wax is applied in a thick layer and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin and or for sensitive areas as armpits, bikini etc.
Your Therapist is using both types of wax for both men and women.
• Make sure that the area which you intend to wax does not have any wounds, skin rashes, acne
• Do not shave the desired spot before waxing. Your hair should be at least 6 mm (1/4 of an inch) long, any hair shorter than that will not get pulled out.
• Trimming down the longer hair makes the treatment much less painful, but be aware that you may trim the hair too short and so it's better skip this process.
