4 of the Best Summer Waxing Treatment Tips

Summer is here, and for beauty professionals, it's the season where waxing appointments skyrocket. As such, ensuring your clients leave satisfied, with smooth, healthy skin requires knowledge about the best summer waxing treatment tips. Here are some expert tips to help you provide your clients with the best waxing experience this season.

Pre-Wax Prep

Before beginning any waxing treatment, you need to prepare your client’s skin. This is especially important during the summer months, when people’s skin is exposed to more sunlight and heat. Make sure your clients avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners for at least 24 hours before their appointment. These activities can make the skin more sensitive and prone to irritation during waxing. Also, at the beginning of the appointment, you’ll want to cleanse the skin thoroughly and remove any makeup, lotions, or oils that can interfere with the wax's adhesion.

Choose the Right Wax

For summer waxing, you want a wax that's effective but gentle on the skin. Jax Wax, available at Lash and Beauty Store, is a vegan, cruelty-free Australian wax line that ticks all the boxes. Their wax formulas are gentle on the skin and perfect for sensitive areas like underarms, bikini, and face. Plus, they're infused with essential oils, such as frankincense and lavender, to soothe and nourish the skin.

Timing is Everything

Educate your clients about the ideal waxing schedule during summer. Hair should be about ¼ inch long for the wax to grip effectively. Typically, scheduling appointments every 4-6 weeks maintains the perfect length and ensures skin remains smooth throughout the season.

Post-Wax Care

Aftercare is just as important as the waxing process. Remind clients to protect their newly waxed skin from the sun. As mentioned, waxing can make the skin more sensitive, and sun exposure can lead to irritation or discoloration. Recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and avoiding direct sunlight for at least 24 hours after a waxing treatment. Your clients should also avoid harsh chemicals, exfoliating products, and tight clothing that can irritate the skin.

With these summer waxing treatment tips, give your clients the smooth, glowing skin they want. Freshly waxed, they'll be ready to confidently rock their summer outfits and enjoy the season without worrying about unwanted hair.
