Waxing is a non-permanent hair removal method that removes hair from the root using a soft or hard wax. A thin layer of wax is spread over the skin, then a cloth strip is pressed on top and ripped off swiftly against the direction of hair growth. Using hard wax, a semi-hardened strip of wax is ripped off at the same swift speed against the direction of hair growth.
How often can I get a wax?
Most people will get a wax about 4 to 6 weeks after their last treatment. 6mm is the ideal hair length for a wax.
