For many years, soft wax was traditionally the type of wax used in the beauty industry. It requires a non woven strip or a muslin strip to remove the hair. Is recommend to apply thin layers. A non woven strip is applied on the area covered with wax, the strip is rubbed to make sure that the wax adheres to the strip and then it is carefully but firmly pulled from the skin, taking the wax and the hair with it.
One of the main concerns people have when getting waxed with soft wax is the wax’s temperature when applied on the skin. Soft waxes are considered more intense than hard waxes.
Hard wax is a little different. It is thicker in consistency and applied warm with a spatula. Once the wax hardens, it is removed without the use of a strip. When waxing the face, hard wax is generally used. Additionally, it is our professional opinion that, when it comes to sensitive skin or sensitive areas such as the bikini area, face or underarms, hard wax is also the best option. It attaches itself only to the hair, not the skin, reducing discomfort and minimizing the possibility of redness or irritation.
