Wondering About the Wax?

There are three main types of waxes that cosmetologist and estheticians use. Estheticians are specialists in body hair removal, most likely if your cosmetologist is fully certified, they will also be an esthetician. The main types of wax are:

  • Hard Wax: This wax, after applied, should dry and harden. This wax will be yanked off of your skin by a professional. This wax should only stick to your hair, not your skin.
  • Soft Wax: Also known as strip wax, will look like honey when hot. It will be spread in thin layers on your skin and then covered by a cloth. The cloth is removed and takes the wax, and your unwanted hair, with it.
  • Sugaring Wax: If you have sensitive skin, this wax is best for you. This is a natural product that incorporates sugar, lemon juice, honey or water.

Ready to Quit Shaving?

Your local cosmetologist should be able to help you out. If they are not fully certified, meaning that they chose not to go through every course offered at their cosmetology school, they will be able to point you in the direction of a certified esthetician.
