A friend of mine has mentioned she gets waxed with “blue wax.” What is that? Is it different from the traditional wax strips? If so, what are the benefits of using blue wax? Is blue wax for everyone?
When it comes to waxing there are two main types of wax: hard wax and soft wax. At Waxing the City the cerologists use both. While we are dedicated to doing one thing and doing it well, we are also big believers in having many different tools and approaches available to us to do that one thing brilliantly. Depending on the area to be waxed, we determine which wax is best. The practice of waxing is as much an art as it is a science and not all waxes are created equal. The difference in quality from one brand of wax to the next can be significant. At Waxing the City we use only superior top-performing waxes, and depending on the client and the procedure, that might mean a hard wax or it might mean a soft wax for their hair removal needs. Either way, all of our cerologists go through extensive training at our Waxing University to be efficient with both kinds.
Hard wax, which is commonly called blue wax because of its color, is a stripless wax. Hard wax is gentler to the skin in sensitive areas, such as the face or bikini area. Hard wax goes on the skin warm and then cools and hardens acting like saran wrap to the hair. As it hardens it lifts itself from the skin making the pull less painful.
Soft wax, also known as strip wax, is best for larger body areas. It is ideal for speed waxing full legs, arms, backs and chests. These areas are also thicker skinned, less sensitive and can handle the pull of a wax strip.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any further questions about the type of wax we use or our training process please don't hesitate to ask any of our cerologists.
