The types of waxing you can get in salons

Waxing is fast becoming the preferred method to remove unwanted hair by women in certain areas. For many years women were afraid to turn to waxing as it was known to be painful, but as it became more and more popular over the years, many have found it doesn't have to be excessively painful and it keeps your skin looking smooth and attractive. Besides, it gets easier the more times you get it done and it weakens the hair and keeps it from growing for longer than shaving does.

Although some people prefer to do wax themselves, it is recommended to get it done by a specialist at a salon in some cases and if you are doing in certain areas. Before you rush to a spa, however, you should know what types of waxing they offer and what is right for. Each treatment varies depending on the methodology and targeted area.
Cold waxing
Perhaps one of the things that scares of waxing is getting hot wax poured over your skin. Fortunately, if that is what has been detering you from getting a waxing, you are out of excuses. This treatment consists in applying a semi-solid form of wax to strips. Then these wax strips are placed on your skin.
The strips are placed in the skin in a way that goes in the opposite direction of the growth of the hair. By being against the growth of hair, it helps give the wax strips a stronger hold on the skin when they are pulled out.
One of the main advantages of this technique is that it is effective from the first session. This means that you won't need continuous sessions to perceive the difference, and those you can save money on several treatments. Another important advantage, particularly for beginners, is that cold waxing is generally less painful than hot waxing methods.
Hot Waxing
This method is consists in applying hot wax on the body followed by a strip. Once the wax cools down and solidifies, the strip is pulled off and the hair is removed. This is the most widespread form of waxing because of its extremely accurate results when it is applied properly. That is why this form is waxing is the most recommended one for areas like eyebrows. Just like with cold waxing, hot waxing allows you to see instant results after one application and it doesn't require continuous sessions like other forms of hair removals do, namely electrolysis and shaving.
Soft Waxing
Although this method can be used with either hot or cold waxing method, what makes it different is that, as its name suggests, the wax is soft. After applying it on your skin, a muslin cloth is placed on top and left to dry. Then the strip is removed, which also removes the hair at the same time. This method is recommended for large areas like the legs.
Hard Waxing
This method doesn't require any cloth or strip to remove it. The previously melted wax is applied on your skin, and once it solidifies, you can remove it with your fingers. Before booking your appointment, make sure the salon uses the right kind of wax, which should not stick to skin, making removal that much easier.
Specific procedures
Whether they are hold or cold, soft or hard, they are also other specific methods of waxing available in salons that focus on an area of the body, namely bikini waxes, Brazilian waxes, and Hollywood waxes. You can even find waxing procedures designed specifically for men.
A bikini line touch up, as the name suggests, consists in tidying up around the edges. This is perfect for you if you want to keep the natural look but would still like more definition. Therefore, hair is removed from anywhere outside of a modest panty line, hence around the tops of things and any hair above your knickers. Meanwhile, a full bikini line wax involves a more profound waxing around the top and sides of your pube.
The French wax is when most of the hair is taken from around the front and sides, while the middle is left intact. This is suitable for women who want to feel clean of hair without feeling too bare. Although the French wax can done in any shape you want, the most popular one is the landing strip. A tiny triangle and a postage stamp, however, are also popular.
Opt for a Brazilian wax if you want to feel totally smooth and hairless. These method consists in taking the hair off the top and sides of the bikini line and also all the way under and around the back.
When having a Brazilian, you can also ask for whatever shape you like, but a landing strip remains the most popular option, along with the Bermuda triangle, which resembles a traditional bikini line wax but without the fluff on your labia and bum.
