The Big Three: Waxing Strategies to Boost Sales 

Written by  

Waxing is not always thought to be a popular spa service. It isn’t as glamourous as other services, such as facials or massages, yet it can prove to be a very profitable addition to your service menu and a great way to grow your overall business. Not only does waxing bring in a loyal client consistently every four to six weeks, but it also provides the opportunity to upsell through retail and other spa offerings. Below are three steps that can help grow spa sales through waxing. 


Even if your team is already incredibly skilled and competent, they may not all be confident in their waxing skills and may require more training. In general, waxing is not a primary subject of focus at most aesthetics and beauty colleges and, as a result, specific wax training can be minimal. Skin care professionals end up graduating and having little experience in waxing, so they may not feel comfortable promoting this service. Staff training for all services is an integral part of the business operations and should not be overlooked, but it is especially important for waxing, as the training provided at schools is often basic. The time and money spent invested into education and training in the wax room will pay off as your team builds confidence and begins to feel assured when marketing their waxing services. Overall, sales will naturally increase as a direct result of new clients coming in for a wax and as current clients begin requesting more areas to be waxed. 

A great place to start when looking for training courses is your current wax brand as they typically provide training and support. Wax brands often offer both virtual or in-person trainings and your individual budget and preference can help decide which is best. Not only is training for current team members important to help improve and freshen their skills, but it is also essential for new team members to ensure consistency and quality in the wax room.
