Here are our five essential waxing tips to achieving optimal, silky smooth results from a Harley Waxing treatment.
1) Don’t skimp.
Always use a high quality and professional grade wax, such as Harley Wax. Harley’s Waxes are for professional use only. Harley’s Waxes have an extremely low melting temperature. This means that the wax should become pliable at a low heat to avoid burning the client. Harley’s Waxes are ideal for sensitive skin as they are made with natural ingredients and essential oils. The products you use reflect the image of your spa or salon so make sure you’re creating a good image.
2) Use a pre-wax oil before your waxing treatment.
Pre-wax oil prepares the skin for the treatment. Harley Pre-Waxing Oil creates a barrier on the skin, ensuring that the wax only adheres to the hairs and not the skin. This reduces drag and pull on the skin and makes for a more comfortable treatment. It is also very important to check the ingredients used in your pre-wax oil to see that it is suitable for sensitive skins.
3) Always use a after wax oil or soothing gel afterwards.
To reduce redness, rashes and prevent ingrown hairs use a After Care Oil such as Harley After Ware Oil or Aloe Soothing Gel. Your chosen product should have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, nourish and condition the skin after the treatment.
4) Perform a skin sensitivity test first before the waxing treatment.
It is important to check that your client is not sensitive to any of the ingredients in either the wax or pre and post products. You can do a skin sensitivity test on the inside of the arm to test for any reactions.
5) Know how to use different hair removal products and accessories.
Any good wax brand, such as Harley, should have a training manual and product guide available for all their products. Make sure you know your product inside out with the help of these guides.
