This wax consists of beeswax and resin and is melted to a thicker consistency than warm wax. Applied to the skin with a wooden spatula, it coats the hair with a thick layer and hardens around the hair to grip it tightly. Once dry, the wax is flipped up at the corner and pulled off quickly by the therapist. Many people find hot wax less painful than strip wax as the heat allows the pores to open so hair is removed more easily and it is the less sticky option more able to remove shorter hair than warm, strip wax.
Strip (warm) Wax
This is the most popular method of waxing. It consists of resin, paraffin wax, glucose syrup and honey. Warm wax is smoothed onto the skin in a thin layer and immediately covered with a fabric or paper strip which is pressed/rubbed onto the waxed area before being removed in a quick swipe. Strip waxing is quicker than hot wax and larger areas can be waxed at one go.
