Fact: Not all strips, spatulas and warmers are created equal. And since we are only as good as the wax and wax tools we use, why not stock your wax room with the best? Here are some of our favorite accessories that will set you and your clients up for a successful wax experience every time.
Wax Removal Strips
Strong, reusable, cleaner all around, we are big fans of non-woven strips. Strong enough to be used many times before throwing them away (legs, for example, would use seven strips total), you’ll love that the wax also doesn’t come through the strip, which keeps your hands clean during the procedure. The wide strips also allow you to remove and rub as you go, creating a cleaner, more efficient process.
They may seem like a little thing, but the truth is proper waxing technique has a lot to do with your spatulas. When using various sized spatulas, know that certain spatulas can result in not applying the right amount of wax to the skin, and cause you to use more than you need for each treatment. The large plastic reusable spatulas can cut your waxing time by 50%, so even though you have to take a few minutes between appointments to clean and sterilize, they are well worth it. Smaller disposable wooden spatulas are perfect for areas such as the face.
Want to know the secret to a smooth, clean wax? It’s temperature. Under heated wax goes on too thick and because it doesn’t remove the hair as well can lead to bruising. If the wax is too hot, it can burn the skin. A quality warmer will also heat both hard and soft wax evenly allowing for you to focus on taking care of your client, not worrying about the wax temperature. And make sure your wax warmer offers temperature settings, as you should always adjust based on room temperature of your wax room.
