Waxing courses

 
 

Whether you’re a whiz with wax already from years of self grooming, or you’re new to the world of waxing, you could surly benefit from a waxing course. Waxing is an industry that’s growing as constantly as that pesky, unwanted leg hair you’re dying to remove. It is one of the most popular and profitable salon treatments, and is particularly popular during the summer months.

 

Why waxing?

Put down that razor. Did you know that waxes can last up to six weeks? Not only will you save what can be added up to hours of time shaving, but the hair that is removed will grow back finer, while the skin remains smoother.  

 

How to get into the industry

The first step is taking a course. On a waxing course, you’ll learn invaluable skills and techniques, including Brazilian and Hollywood waxing, to create smooth skin. Instructors will cover waxing procedures for every inch of the body (literally), including leg, bikini, underarm, upper lip, and eyebrow waxing. It will also cover health, safety, and hygiene, as well as post-wax care. Once you’re certified by a course, you can apply to work for various salons.

 

From France to Brazil to Hollywood...

When it comes to the bikini line, there are multiple techniques that will be taught on a course. You will learn more about these methods on a course, but the styles include regular bikini, full bikini, French, Brazilian, and Hollywood waxing. All of these styles include leaving hair in different areas.

 

History of hair removal

Believe it or not, waxing wasn’t a product of Hollywood or Brazil, as the names might indicate. Hair removal dates back to ancient Egyptian times, when women used depilatory creams and waxed with sticky concoctions made from oil and honey. The hairless trend was later adopted by the Greeks and Turks.

 

Wax facts

  • Hair should be between a fourth of an inch and a half of an inch long before it is waxed
  • While waxing can cause some redness or swelling, it is generally good for the skin, exfoliating it
  • There are two major kinds of waxing, strip-waxing, using cloths to remove hair, and hard waxing, in which wax is applied and then hardens on skin before it is peeled off

 

Myth busting

Many people falsely believe that waxing hair can cause it to grow back thicker and darker. In fact, the opposite is true. Most people find that regular waxing causes hair to grow in finer over time. However, if not done properly, waxing can break hair, instead of totally removing it. This is can cause the hair to seem thick and dark. 

Another waxing misconception is that it can cause wrinkles. If practised properly, the skin will be held firm and taut, and will involve no pulling or stretching whatsoever.
