Whoever said that “beauty is pain” was not kidding—if you are a wax artist, you certainly know this to be entirely true. Many men and women get weekly or monthly waxes for a plethora of reasons. And while it becomes commonplace for many of your clients, it doesn’t mean the pain completely subsides. That is why it is so important that you continue to take proper measures so you can make waxing as painless and comfortable for your clients as possible.
Send Out Reminders
One of the easiest ways to make waxing painless for your clients is to send out a reminder that their appointment is coming up. Often, your clients may tend to forget or forgo preparation before their waxing service. You know that unprepared skin can be more difficult to wax. As such, send out a helpful reminder to your clients that gives them enough time to exfoliate and moisturize their skin.
You want nothing more than to protect your clients from any unnecessary pain, which is why you should ask them questions to avoid that. These questions should revolve around any medications, supplements, or topicals they use consistently that may affect their skin. There are many medications, like tretinoin, that can make skin quite fragile, leading to a higher likelihood of tearing, bleeding, and sensitivity. It is also a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the names of the medications or supplements that may increase skin sensitivity.
There is a huge difference in the quality of wax available on the market—not all of them are as good as others. The quality of your wax is a huge component of making you a wax artist people want to return to. That is why you must ensure your salon uses high-quality wax, lest you miss out on providing your clients with a painless experience. What’s more, it is also a good idea to switch between hard and soft wax and tailor that mixture to your client—doing these things benefits both of you.
