A burden on your skin, but on clients it’s a win — unwanted hair is an oft-overlooked opportunity for nail techs to rip into new profits and broaden their salon skill set.
Here is a sampling of products to give your clients a top-notch waxing service.
Amber Products’ Turquoise Chamomile Wax is a designer strip wax that removes hair from the follicle for a gentle, non-irritating treatment with minimal redness. This wax works well even on very fragile-skinned clients.
Clean + Easy’s Brazilian Full Body Hard Wax is specifically designed for the Brazilian bikini technique and will gently remove even the coarsest of hair from sensitive skin. The no-strip formula leaves the skin smooth with no wax residue.
Cold Wax Co.’s L’Eily Cold Wax is a sugar wax that can be used cold on most parts of the body. It’s available in a starter kit that includes wax, pre-wax cleanser and dusting powder, after wax toner and gel, portion cups, and waxing strips. Cold Wax also has a smaller kit for students to use for their state board exam.
Depilève’s Intimate Film Rosin wax is a hard wax that requires no muslin strip, but only attaches to the hair and not the skin. The wax removes the entire root of the hair cleanly and effectively, so re-growth is slower.
Flora-Wax’s Brazilian Wax is expertly formulated for a very clean and tidy wax treatment. It contains Teobroma Grandiflorom, a butter that is extracted from an exotic Amazonian fruit seed, that naturally grows in Brazil and is nourishing and healing to the skin.
GiGi’s Super Fruit Waxes are formulated with vitamins rich in antioxidants to leave skin healthy, soft, and smooth. The Super Fruit Waxes are gentle enough for the delicate bikini area, but work for all areas on the body: brows, upper lip, legs, and arms.
Mancine Cosmetics’ Ultra Flexxx Brazilian Strawberry XXX Wax will soothe senses and pamper skin with its delicious scent and silky smooth texture. This hypoallergenic wax is formulated to reduce redness and leave no sticky residue.
Mastex’s Azulene and Honey Depilatory Waxes were developed for people with sensitive skin but work well for all skin types. The waxes moisturize the skin as they remove the hair to leave it smooth and free of irritation or residue.
Melting Pot’s Microwavable Stripless Wax requires no strips — simply heat, apply, press, and pull away unwanted hair. The wax container has a convenient coffee mug handle for easily and safely removing it from the microwave. And the wax has an improved formulation for better results, even on coarse and dense hair.
Satin Smooth’s new Organic Honey Wax with Argan combines two powerful ingredients to give a premium waxing service. The natural antibacterial quality of honey together with the moisturizing effects of argan oil, extracted from the nuts of Moroccan argan trees, create a smooth and effective wax product.
Wax n Waxing’s wax is a beeswax-based 100% depilatory, contains no added sugar or honey, and has a smooth consistency that does not crumble or break. The wax can also be melted in the microwave.
