What Is the Right Wax for Your Clients?

There are so many factors involved with choosing what is the right wax for you, and it can be overwhelming. We’ve created a list of some questions you should look into before making a decision:

  1. What’s your client’s skin type? If your clients have sensitive skin, look for a wax that is formulated for sensitive skin or made with natural ingredients, such as Cirepil Origine, which is plant-based and a simplified formula to avoid any sensitivities to ingredients.

  2. What is your client’s hair type? Does your client have fine hair or thin hair? If your client has thicker or coarse hair, a hard wax might be the better option for them.

  3. How large an area are you looking to wax your client? Soft wax is typically used for larger areas of the body, such as the legs and arms, while hard wax is used for smaller, more sensitive areas, such as the face, underarms, and bikini area.

Next, let’s get into more details about what else you as a wax professional should look for in waxing supplies.

Types of Wax

different types of hair wax

There are two main types of wax: Soft wax and Hard wax.

Soft wax is applied to the skin then a strip is applied to adhere to the wax then the strip is pulled to remove the hair and is ideal for large areas of the body, such as legs and arms. Hard wax, on the other hand, is applied and removed without the use of strips and is usually for more sensitive areas, such as the face, underarms, and bikini areas.

When choosing wax supplies, consider which type of wax is best suited for the area you are waxing for your client.

Quality of Wax

The quality of the wax is another major factor to consider. High-quality wax is less likely to break or irritate the skin, and it will also remove more hair in a single pull. Look for wax that is made with natural ingredients and free of harmful chemicals.

It's also essential to choose wax that is easy to work with and has a low melting point so it doesn't burn the skin, making it a more enjoyable experience for your customers and easier to work with as a professional.

Waxing Tools

You might also need a variety of tools to perform waxing, including Pre + Post care oils and cleansers, disposable spatulas, and waxing strips. When choosing waxing tools, look for products that are durable and efficient to make the waxing process easier for you and your client.

Cheap tools can break easily, cause safety concerns and lead to inconsistent results. Also, remember to choose tools that are the right size and shape for the area you will be waxing your customers.

Brands & Suppliers
