FAQ'S

Waxing

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'HOT WAX' & 'STRIP WAX'?


With HOT WAX a layer of wax is applied, this semi-hardens and is then removed in a quick smooth action against the direction of hair growth.

This method is recommended for less breakage and therefore longer re-growth periods and less ingrowns. It also promotes skin hydration and is highly recommended for sensitive areas like the bikini line.

Strip wax/ warm wax is appied the same way as hot wax but is removed with a paper strip.
