Hair removal has made great strides through the years. Now, more than ever, clients have endless options when it comes to hair removal. Lasers may be the new darlings on the hair removal circuit, but waxing never goes out of style, and it's still the option that the majority of men and women choose when it's time to ditch the fuzz.
As hair removal options have widened, the individual categories have also been improved, and the improvements in waxing have made a huge difference in the client's overall experience. Waxes that work overtime, and reduce pain during the process, have really changed the game. Read on to learn all about the best of the best in professional hair wax options.
Prep your skin for waxing by exfoliating a day or two in advance so any ingrown hairs or dead skin can be removed.
Satin Smooth Honey Wax
Satin Smooth Honey Wax is produced from natural pine resin and beeswax which melts and cools quickly to pull more hair with no breakage. It's formulated to spread thinly and easily over large body areas. Be warned, however that this wax works best after a few uses—the fluidity is fantastic after it's been used a few times.
Gigi Honey Wax
Gigi Honee Wax is one of the most popular waxes used by beauty professionals. The whole Gigi line has a lot of options to choose from. From soft and hard waxes, to therapeutic waxes, you can tailor your usage to each client's individual needs. Gigi also offers a complete line of waxing accessories, including pre and post waxing products.
Berodin Blue Pellets
In my opinion, blue wax is the most painless option when it comes to hair removal and waxing.
Blue wax hardens and is removed as a whole strip, negating the need for the paper strips that can be messy and often cause more pain. The process is usually faster than traditional waxing, and overall is a more pleasant experience.
One of the best blue wax products on the market is Berodin Blue Pellets. The stripless wax is formulated with revolutionary polymers for maximum flexibility, melting down at a low temperature which minimizes irritation. Wax adheres firmly to both fine and coarse hair, without sticking to the skin.
Cirepil Blue Hard Wax
Another favorite in the hard wax department is Cirepil Blue Hard Wax. Cirepil is on the mission to make waxing as painless as possible. The creator of Cirepil, Perron Rigot, says “It’s not just about what we remove, it’s about what we leave behind…healthy skin!”.
Like other hard waxes, no strips are required. The wax adheres only to the hair, removing it at the root, while not pulling or sticking to the skin. Cirepil Blue Wax also melts at a lower temperature than traditional waxes, making the experience even more comfortable for the client.
Shobha Sugar Wax
If you're looking for an all natural waxing product, then Shobha Sugar Wax is the one for you and your clients. Shobha was created by a New York based salon that specializes in natural hair removal. Their products are safe, health-sensitive and they avoid all things that are toxic or unhealthy. Shobha waxing products are gentle and effective, and they're a great option for your health-conscious clients.
