Waxing - What to Expect?

Posted: November 16th, 2011

Waxing has been one of the most popular methods for hair removal for quite a long time due to its efficiency. Not only is it an extremely efficient method for removing hair, but it is one of the most long-lasting methods, as it typically takes 3-6 weeks for the hair to grow back that was initially waxed. However, if you've never waxed before, the idea of doing it can be a little nerve-racking and mysterious. Waxing is usually a very quick process that takes no more than 5-10 minutes in most cases. Initially, a preconditioning solution is spread onto the area that will be waxed to prepare the hair and skin for the process. Next, warm wax is spread onto the desired area for waxing. Almost immediately after the wax has been spread on, a cloth is pressed over the area firmly to lock into the strands of hair and wax. Once the wax has hardened and attached, the cloth is quickly ripped away in the opposite direction of hair growth for quick hair removal. Generally, the waxing process is over before the client even knows it due to how quickly the hair can be removed and the type of precision that this method provides. Additionally, waxing is not very painful due to the haste in pulling off the cloth.
