>> STEP 1 – Keep it Clean
Waxing removes hair from the root and may create an open opportunity for a bacterial infection to enter the skin. Always keep your hands clean and cleanse the clients skin with Pre Wax Skin Cleanser which helps destroy harmful bacteria from the skin surface to maintain a sanitary treatment.
>> STEP 2 – Always Check Your Wax Temperature
Checking the wax for temperature and consistency is necessary in order to prevent skin damage or discomfort. Hard wax should not be completely liquid and temperature should be tested on the back of your hand or forearm before applying to the clients skin.
>> STEP 3 – Working Around the Bikini Bend
Apply Brilliance in a smooth even stroke, while paying attention to the edges of the wax. Smooth edges will have a clean pull, whereas rough or thin edges may not pull evenly, thus leaving bits of hard wax to remove after the pull. This takes up more time and wax, which is a waste of money.
>> STEP 4 – Support is Important
Support of the skin while waxing prevents unwanted bruising or tearing of the skin. Both of these nasty results to poor support make the waxing experience painful and undesirable for the client. Using the wide “V” support with hand and thumb to press the skin taut and give a good clean pull.
>> STEP 5 – Pubic Application
Using the wide “V” again, gently push the skin away from the crease of the leg for a smooth even application of Brilliance. Once the wax sets, pull evenly and close to the skin surface to remove the unwanted hair.
>> STEP 6 – Mirror the Other Side
Now that one side of the bikini is completed perform the same technique to the opposite side keeping the lines even. Again, using the “V” support hand and smooth even application of Brilliance with clean edges. On this side of the bikini area, the client has a couple of skin tags, or acrochordons. These are small growths of skin that develop on many individuals. It is important NOT to wax over them. Waxing over a skin tag may tear the tag from the skin surface that may cause discomfort or pain and bleeding. Apply the wax around the skin tag and tweeze away any unwanted hair that may be near it or was missed.
>> STEP 7 – Clean Up the Top
Now that the edges of the pubic area and the bend are clean and smooth, focus on the top pubic line. As you may have noticed with this model, the bikini clean up was simple because her hair is nicely contained with little spread growth. Some women may have pubic hair growth that can spread for inches out the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Always consult with your client on how far they would like the waxing to be done. In many cases, suggesting a full leg and bikini wax will be the best-looking option.
>> STEP 8 – Smooth and Protect
After Waxing Oil with natural Australian tea tree softens the skin surface, provides natural antibacterial protection and removes any sticky residue that may be left behind from the wax. Always advise your client to keep her skin smooth and dry for 24 to 48 hours after waxing to help prevent any bacterial infection that could develop. Keeping the skin dry includes refraining from workout, sex, or working outdoors. Sweat creates moisture and warmth, which may be a breeding ground for many bacteria – including staph.
