The difference between warm and hot waxing treatments
I use two different waxes, Perron Rigot hot and strip wax but what’s the difference?
Hot wax is great for stubborn, coarse hair and is applied thickly, allowed to set and then removed by hand. It shrink wraps the hair and doesn’t stick to the skin so is perfect for small sensitive areas such as bikini (Hollywood, Brazilian), face and underarms. I won’t use any other kind of wax on these areas because it’s far too harsh.
Strip wax is perfect for larger less sensitive areas such as legs, arms, back, chest and shoulders. It is stickier than hot wax and a thin layer is applied and removed using a paper strip.
