The primary waxes used in beauty salons are hot wax and strip wax, to confuse the issue these waxes are also known by other names;
Hot wax can also be called, film wax, peelable wax and Brazilian wax. This was once the only wax used in salons until the invention of strip wax. Hot wax is applied to the growth area, left to set and removed by the therapist. This is the method we use for all intimate waxing in the salon.
Strip wax is also known as soft wax or warm wax, it is applied to the growth area with either a spatula or a roller and the therapist applies a paper or cotton strip on top of the wax to remove it.
As with all things, there are many different brands making a variety of claims, we feel that after 30 years of working with professional brands, there is very little difference in performance with professional quality waxes, the onus is on the ability of the therapist and their skills. There are many wonderful brands out there but the bottom line is, if you can't wax no particular brand of wax will change that.
