Waxing is the most common method of hair removal in spas today. Hair on any part of the body or face can be waxed. Warm wax is applied to the area and then removed, bringing the hair with it. There are two types of wax: hard and soft. Hard wax, which is easier on delicate skin, is often used for the face, underarms, and bikini/brazilian area. Soft wax is typically used for the brows, legs, arms, back, and chest.
Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at regular intervals (depending on your hair cycle can be anywhere from 2-6 weeks). Because waxing pulls the hair out by the root, it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. The more you wax, the less hair grows back. It’s also great to get done a few days prior to any tattoo work.
