This was my first job out of esthetics school. I have been here going on four years. I've been unhappy almost the entire time. I have a great clientele who swear they'll follow me wherever I go, but…Continue

Hey guys, it's been a while since I've been on here, but I've been doing some research on wax and I wanted to get some expert opinions. I have been looking through SO MANY different brands. It really…Continue

"Hi there!  I am a waxing specialist as well, but I've never used scissors or clippers.  Do you find that helps with someone with longer hair?"

"You'll have to use the same cleaning protocol that is used by cosmetologists when they use electrical trimmers (or battery-operated, or rechargeable). Do your research: look up your state board standards of cleanliness (CLEAN or ASEPTIC…"

"I do trim with clippers, I find it much easier.  Plus if your client does not remove all the hair you are able to clean the rest up so they don't have to do anything later.  You can get clippers that you can sanitize the attachments.…"

Trimming body hair prior to waxing

Hey guys. Next month I'm opening a waxing salon in the downtown area of my city. A problem I've dealt with in the years I've been waxing is when people come in with super long body hair. Not only does it make my job more difficult, but it also makes the service much more painful! At my current place of employment, we use a tiny pair of scissors to trim the hair prior to waxing. It takes way longer than it should, and it's scary coming at someone's crotch with some sharp, pointy scissors! Not…See More

"I've used it before. I like it. It's very cooling and I read on their website with regular use, it can help slow hair re-growth. Not sure how true that part is, but as far as a post wax product, I like it a lot. A little goes a long way.…"

So I'm opening a waxing salon...

I had posted here a few weeks back (see previous post here ) about trying to decide whether I should take a waxing job at a nail salon around the corner from my house. Would you believe that the same day I went to talk to the owner, my dad found the perfect location at an AMAZING price for me to open my own place? I can't believe it either, and I literally have the lease in…See More

"60% is NOT necessarily good. % is a relative value -- relative to the price charged and the number of services expected. would you rather have 60% of $70 or 30% of $200?"
