Waxing hair removal has gained popularity due to its effectiveness and the short duration that a waxing hair removal will take. Clients are also warming up to the idea of a waxing hair removal due to the longer duration they will be able to stay without worrying about unwanted hair re-growth.
Choosing between hard and soft wax when a client comes to you for hair removal in a professional spa in Plain city can be a difficult task especially if you do not know how the two compare. To help you in making the right choice, here is how soft wax and hard wax compare in various aspects including the mode of application, effectiveness, and also the level of comfort during the hair removal:
- Mechanism of waxing: When hard wax is applied onto the skin, it will harden whereas the soft wax will remain soft long after the application.
Hard wax will not require the use of a waxing strip but will be pulled off by holding one edge of the wax. For soft wax, you will require to spread wax strips on top so that you can use it to pull off unwanted hair on the skin.
- Comfort: When working with hard wax, you will notice that it will form a hard layer on the hair and not on the skin. This will make it less painful as the wax will only pull off the hair leaving the skin untouched. Soft wax, on the other hand, will stick on the skin and also on the hair and when pulling off the hair, the skin will also be stretched in the process leading to more irritation.
Hard wax is mostly preferred for waxing sensitive parts of the body like the armpits, facial region, and the bikini area as it will cause less pain. Soft wax, on the other hand, will be most preferred for hair removal on extensive parts of the body like the legs and arms since it will be faster to work with.
- Application: Both soft wax and hard wax will require heating before the application. For hard wax, you will need to heat it at low temperature but for the soft wax; you will heat it at a very high temperature so that you will attain the right consistency.
Once the wax has been heated, both soft and hard wax will be applied by use of an applicator.
- Effectiveness: Both hard and soft waxes are equally effective when it comes to waxing hair removal. Hard wax is preferred for the sensitive parts of the body like the armpits, the bikini area, and the facial region. Soft wax is preferred for large parts of the body as it is easier to work with and less messy.
The effectiveness of hard or soft wax will depend on the brand that will be used. If you go to a waxing hair removal spa in Plain city, ask the brand that will be used for the hair removal. If it is one of the cheap brands, look for another professional spa that uses high-quality products. A spa that uses cheap products will charge less but the outcome will not be as good as in the spa where the best wax is used for the hair removal.
