Popular Body Hair Waxing Terms

A waxing treatment at a salon will remove unwanted hair from places like your bikini line and upper lip in such a way that it doesn't grow back for three to six weeks. Spas usually charge per body area, such as lower leg, chest, back, etc. Here are some popular waxing terms defined.

  • Hard wax hair removal – This option works especially well for coarse hair, and hurts less than the traditional method. It simply goes onto the skin and dries, and you yank off the wax itself rather than using strips.
  • Home kit – Whether you want to tidy up your eyebrow area, purge rebel hairs from your foot or go for a full Brazilian, you can skip the salon and do it yourself with these kit. Included are strips, wax, and soothing components such as lotion or tea tree oil.
  • Numbing antiseptic – This product contains a numbing agent that takes the "ouch" effect out of the process.
  • Soothing lotion - This lotion goes on after you wax to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. Common ingredients include aloe vera, hydrocortisone and essential oils like lavender and eucalyptus. Soothing lotion is particularly helpful in sensitive parts of your body such as your bikini line and the underarm area.
  • Wax pots – Salons use these containers to hold wax. Sanitary guidelines dictate that estheticians never dip a spatula into the pot twice (or “double-dip”).
  • Strips – Also called a spatula, a waxing strip will go over the area and remove the wax, pulling the hairs out at the follicle.

    Hair and body waxing will remove hair from various parts of the body. Most salons will offer simple waxing services, such as eyebrow and lip, not to mention underarm and leg treatments. Other types of treatments will only be offered at salons with private waxing rooms. Salons that provide hair and body waxing will have the equipment ready to be used at any time throughout the day. Furthermore, hair will need to have grown a certain amount before waxing can be used. Oils can help relieve any pain waxing has caused, and reduce the swelling of the area. For sanitary reasons, not all salons will offer Brazilian or bikini wax treatments. Salons will need private areas so customers can be more relaxed for the process. Although body waxing is more popular with women, men can also benefit from treatments. Men will often ask for back and chest hair removal. One strip of wax will be removed at a time. Salons will need to keep the wax at a certain temperature, to ensure that it is warm enough for use, but not too hot that it burns customers. Customers who want to find a salon that provides bikini, eyebrow, foot, or other type of waxing treatment can call and ask about pricing, and whether they will need to make an appointment. Customers that are new to being waxed can learn tips on how to take care of the skin that has been waxed to avoid ingrown hairs, and how much hair growth is needed before a waxing treatment can be done again.
