6 ways to speed up your waxing technique without compromising on results

Beauty is a fabulous but competitive industry, so in order to stay in the lead and keep your clients, you must constantly invest in yourself and your business. Here are 6 tips for speeding up your technique without comprimising on results:

1. Choose a premium wax product

Superior-quality waxes have a better formula, are much more elastic and flexible, and dry faster. A good product will apply evenly and with ease, without sliding off the skin or creating strings.

Smooth application will reduce the time of your work. Higher quality wax grips the hair better and, as a result, will allow you to remove all the hair with fewer applications, making your treatment quicker and with the best results for your client. Premium product distributors always offer training and support because it is especially important to use the product correctly.

2. Prepare the skin pre-wax

Always clean and protect the skin. Taking off any residue of creams, oil and dirt will allow you to apply wax evenly throughout the entire treatment, which will in turn allow you to remove hair quicker and more efficiently without compromising on the quality of the treatment. Using pre-waxing products will protect the skin from any skin lifting or pulling in case you need to go over the same area twice.

3. Mirror using hot wax

To speed up the treatment, a good technique is to mirror your patch application on both sides of the body. You can apply four to six patches of hot wax, and by the time the last one is applied, the first is dry and ready to be removed. Repeating this pattern will decrease your treatment time.

4. Use rollers instead of spatulas

Using rollers with strip wax cartridges instead of spatula application will save you lots of treatment time.

Rollers are more efficient and easier to use, and the wax is distributed evenly without any dripping or spillages. You can cover a bigger area of the body with one application and remove the hair quicker.

5. Multitask during treatments

To speed up your waxing technique without compromising on results, you can multitask during your waxing treatments. If you’re using a hot and strip wax, use both at the same time. For example, if you are doing a service of Hollywood hot wax and full-leg strip wax, while the patches of hot wax are drying, you can wax the inner part of the leg.

6. Wax practice makes perfect

Every therapist will develop their own waxing techniques. It is normally a mixture of what you learn at college, courses and work, along with what feels comfortable and easier for you.

It is very important to practise your techniques on different people and adapt them to your clients’ needs. During your work as a waxing therapist, you are going to better yourself, your movements will become faster and more confident, and your returning and requested clients will be the best compliment you ever get.
