Waxing can be an easy way for nail techs to complement a manicure or pedicure by removing unsightly knuckle hairs. An esthetician or cosmetology license is required to wax in the United States. If you have one or are thinking of getting one, here is a sampling of products to give your clients a top-notch waxing service.


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, prewax cleanser and dusting powder, after wax toner and gel, portion cups, and waxing strips.

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 r e-growth is slower.

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.
