International Day of Waxing

Understand Your Wax

How and when you wax is completely your call. Choosing from the different types of available waxes can be overwhelming. Different wax styles target different hair types. For example, some are better suited for delicate facial or bikini areas, while others work better on legs and arms.

Hard Wax

Hard wax does not need a strip or a cloth for epilation. The hardened wax becomes the strip itself. It is mostly used for coarse hair and efficiently removes hair from sensitive areas like the bikini line, underarms and upper lip. It is most commonly used wax type for Brazilian waxing. 

Soft Wax

Soft wax requires an epilation strip or a cloth to remove hair. It is most suitable for medium to coarse hair types. It is the most commonly used wax for all-over body waxing such as the back, legs, arms and any other larger body areas. Wide cloth strips can be used, making the removal quick and easy. 

Wax Strips

Wax strips are pre-coated with cold wax for convenience of use. Wax strips do not require heating. They come in different sizes and shapes and are suitable for different body parts. Wax strips are best for beginners and an excellent choice for travel or quick touch-ups between waxes.
