Rose Waxing Technique: Hard Wax
There are several different brands and types of wax out there but all wax typically falls into two main categories: hard wax and soft wax.
Choosing which wax to use is generally based upon the area being waxed, as well as skin type, thickness of the hair and also the level of sensitivity. When choosing a wax, quality is very important and could drastically affect the results. So what’s the difference between the two?
Hard Wax is a strip-less wax used in sensitive areas such as the bikini or face. Here at Rose Waxing we use Cirepil Hard Wax System
Cirepil Hard Wax is the most popular strip-less wax. When the wax hardens, it attaches itself to the hair and not the skin; then it is simply, quickly, and less painfully removed from the skin by hand. This wax is perfect for people with sensitive skin who are prone to irritation and ingrown hairs that other waxes leave behind. Also, Cirepil has managed to lower the temperature in which the waxes are applied (20-30 degrees below most waxes) which makes your experience more comfortable.
To recap, the benefits of the Hard wax we use at Rose Waxing are:
No Removal Strip
Better for Sensitive Skin
Less Ingrown Hairs
Lower Application Temperatures
When it comes to the body, soft wax is more commonly used for areas such as the arms, legs, and upper body. Strip wax, or soft wax, is it less expensive and more efficient when covering large areas that are not as sensitive or prone to irritation due to the thickness of the skin. Strip wax tends to be more sticky and tacky and is better for fine hair, which is why we prefer hard wax for the bikini and facial area.
Many salons use strip wax in the bikini area instead of hard wax but here at Rose Waxing, we specialize in hard waxing for Brazilian and facial areas which is what sets us apart! Hard wax is significantly more expensive for suppliers to purchase, making it less popular in standard salons. Application of hard wax is a little more difficult but with the right expertise and knowledge, hard wax is a much better option for hair removal.
At Rose Waxing we utilize the best hard wax and have many years of experience perfecting the proper waxing techniques to provide you with a virtually painless Brazilian waxing service.
