Hard Wax Tips

GiGi Brazilian Body Hard Wax is formulated for thorough bikini waxing while being gentle enough for facial application. Hard wax is gentler to your client's skin than Soft Wax when you are waxing sensitive areas. It adheres only to hair, not to skin. This makes Brazilian Body Hard Wax gentle enough for sensitive areas while providing for the removal of even the coarsest hair. An additional benefit is the lack of the sticky residue that can occur with Soft Wax.

There are several key points to remember when using Brazilian Body Hard Wax, especially if you are primarily a Soft Wax user.

First, if the wax breaks or is brittle, then the application was either too thin or allowed to set too long, or the room temperature is too cool.

Tips for Tool Preparation

Maintaining the proper wax temperature is important for a successful result. The wax should form a soft ball on the end of the applicator Until you become familiar with the proper consistency for Brazilian Body Hard Wax,a good guide is to heat the wax in a professional pot wax warmer for 30-45 minutes on the HIGH setting until the center is not completely melted. At this point, the wax along the exterior of the can should be the appropriate temperature and consistency for waxing. Set and maintain the warmer temperature setting to LOW.

Tips for Hard vs. Soft Wax

Hard wax is gentler to your client's skin than Soft Wax when you are waxing sensitive areas, such as the face and the bikini area.

The application should be thicker than with a Soft Wax. The Hard Wax should be even all the way around the edges, extending beyond the hair growth area.

Tips for Wax Strips

Beginners should apply only one strip at a time. After you have masteredthe technique, apply as many strips of wax as you are comfortable with atone time, allowing the wax to set.

Check the surface of the wax strip for tackiness. If the strip is not ready, put it back down and wait a few second until fully set.

The wax surface dulls as it sets. When removing the wax strip, stretch the skin taut and hold firmly. Flick the edge of the strip and remove in the opposite direction of hair growth.

Tips for Preparing the Skin
