One thing I love about teaching private wax classes is that I can teach my Esthetician students to work with as many different waxes as I can get my paws on and as many as my table will hold! I am not affiliated with any waxing company so I don’t represent or try to endorse any one wax in particular on a regular basis or during private wax classes to my students. I like to provide companies with my feedback and the feedback I provide is not just based on my opinion but it is also based on the students opinion and also the models opinion. I sometimes get comments like “great smell” or “oh, that one feels heavy on the skin” or “why does this wax keep breaking off?”. I try to work with waxes that are from the lower end price point to the higher end price point (without telling the student which is which) and let them play around on different body parts with each wax before we begin the actual wax class.
So, I have decided to keep you updated once a month with a blog on which wax was voted the best by a random student that I select out of a hat once a month!
My last student really liked this Azulene, blue hard wax that we played with at the weekend. It is to be applied at a very low temperature and is applied thinly. Because of the high concentration of beeswax the melting temperature may be lower than other waxes, so you need to make sure your wax pot is set to the lowest temperature. Like all waxes, we should always check the temperature of the wax on the wrist before applying it to the client. I liked the consistency of this wax also and I liked the fact that it went on thin (almost like paper) with great elasticity, and it was very, very fast cooling which greatly helped her pick up speed. The smell certainly wasn’t offensive like some waxes I have tried and the model didn’t have any complaints. I also found that the ‘free edge’ for using to remove the hard wax was easy to release. Some students find that some waxes can be hard to remove hence the reason I wrote this other waxing blog a while back.
Nicole only used this wax whilst she was doing Brazilian’s as it was not cost effective during the class to be applied on other body parts, such as legs, back, chest etc. I am more of a soft wax girl when it comes to waxing these areas. But If the student requires tuition in this area, I am more than happy to discuss prior to the class itself.
Here is Nicole Adams who enjoyed working with this wax!
