International Day of Waxing

What is Waxing?

Waxing is a very effective form of hair removal that provides long-lasting results. Since hair is removed directly from the root, consistently waxing results in finer hair each time it is done. In addition, waxing is naturally exfoliating, resulting in soft, smooth skin. It is even suitable for those with sensitive skin. Unlike shaving, which may result in razor burn and nicks, waxing is quick and provides instant results.

Bikini Waxing

A bikini wax removes hair only along the outside of the bikini or underwear line. It tidies up any unruly hair that might peek out of your underwear or bikini bottom.

Brazilian Waxing

This style leaves you completely smooth down there. From top to bottom, the goal of a Brazilian wax is to remove all hair from your most intimate regions. It’s ideal for anyone who prefers a bare and maintained look.

Body Waxing

Full-body wax usually refers to everything below the neck, some would include facial waxing in their definition. If you’re accustomed to removing your body hair, you probably have used many different techniques for various parts of your body.

Brow Waxing

It’s now easier than ever to find your natural brow shape and maintain that shape to allow your brows to frame your beautiful face. 

Facial Waxing

Both men and women may choose to remove unwanted hair from the cheeks, upper lip, chin and sideburns by waxing instead of shaving daily. 

Men's Waxing

Waxing is a great way for men to remove any unwanted hair from the back, arms legs, chest and face. Many men opt to wax for athletic or fitness purposes as well as aesthetic reasons. 

Why Wax?

Two main benefits include the immediate and consistently smooth skin that results in less regrowth over time. However, there are multiple other advantages that make waxing the preferred way to remove hair for many individuals.


Removing unwanted hair is something everyone deals with weekly. Waxing is one of the most effective hair removal methods that keep the skin hair-free longer because it pulls the hair from the follicle rather than just cutting it on the surface.

Smoother and healthier skin

Waxing achieves smoother, softer skin by removing the top layer of dry, dead skin cells along with the hair. As a result, the skin underneath is soft, even, and smooth. No other method of hair removal can achieve such smooth skin.

Environmentally friendly

Hair removal wax has minimal impact on the environment. In contrast to plastic disposable razors left over from shaving, eco-friendly options make waxing extremely sustainable. For example, washable epilation strips may re-used as necessary, and biodegradable strips are easily broken down.

Less irritation

Importantly, waxing is gentle enough for the face and body.  Unlike depilation, when hair is removed at the surface by shaving or the use of a hair removal cream, waxing is a form of epilation that grabs hair follicles at the root.  It does not result in nicks, cuts or razor burn nor does waxing use harsh chemicals.


Waxing lasts longer than shaving and is less expensive than laser hair removal treatments. Once unwanted hair is waxed, it stays smooth for weeks. There is no need to purchase razors or blades. Lasers must be administered by a professional technician and still do not guarantee 100% permanent hair reduction. While maternity waxing is very popular, laser hair removal is not suitable for pregnant women.


Waxing can be done in the comfort of your own home without the need to visit a salon or laser clinic. It is suitable for all hair types. Waxing is also time-effective in the sense that smooth results last for weeks at a time without the need to shave.
