The main difference between waxing and shaving is that with waxing, we are removing the root of the hair follicle as you take off the wax in one clean motion. Results last anywhere between 4 -6 weeks!
Shaving has short term benefits and hair will grow back quicker and thicker in just a few days for some, since you are cutting the hair shaft at the thickest part of the hair. Shaving also leaves your skin irritated, red, and itchy.
Benefits of Waxing
- No hair, no hassle
- Less irritation than shaving
- Hair grows back softer and finer
- Weeks of soft, smooth skin
- Regular waxing reduces hair density

* Hair should be at least 5mm long (the size of a grain of rice) to allow the wax to grip around the hair.
Strip vs Hot Wax
Strip wax is runny wax that’s applied in a thin layer using a disposable wooden spatula stick. Hair is then immediately removed by rubbing a disposable strip against it and quickly peeling it off. Strip wax grabs fine hairs perfectly, working better on large areas of the body.
Hot Wax becomes it’s own wax strip and removes all the hair painlessly and quickly. It is thicker and applied warm with a spatula. Once the wax hardens, it is removed without the use of a strip. Hot wax is generally used on coarse hairs.
