Waxing Guide: Which wax works for you?

STRIP WAX

How to Use:

Heat until the melted wax is the texture of runny honey, stirring the pot regularly to dissipate any solid balls or surface film that may form. Using the tip of a spatula, apply small sections of wax in the direction of hair growth. Use firm pressure to press wax all the way down to the skin and thoroughly encapsulate every hair, ensuring the edges of your strip are clean and even to prevent breakage. Wait a few seconds until the wax is completely dry, then lift a corner and pull off in the opposite direction to application.

Roller waxes are incredibly fast and easy to use. They are perfect for leg waxing efficiently and quickly. Because of this, they are best for first time waxers or busy salons. You can use a duo universal roller warmer and we have it on our online store.
