Waxing Retail Ideas

Waxing is huge right now! I speak to waxers every day, and have personal experience in the field as well! As a waxer, it is so important to educate your clients. For the amazing results, all client's expect, there is some upkeep on their end. Are you educating your clients on how to get the best results AND how to maintain between services?

We have just added this amazing retail display by DIR. Take a look at Gems Retail Display Shelf with LED Illumination!

Available in white, black, or grey. It is modern and has neutral colors to fit your space. If you are worried about space, it would work in your treatment room as well! That way you can talk to your client about the maintenance and easily grab the products during or after the service!

Now, what to fill the shelves with! I've tried it all! Take a look at my top picks!

For Exfoliation 

Regular skin exfoliation is the most important in any post waxing treatments! Scrubbing away the dead skin is vital. It clogs pores and causes ingrown hair.

Retail a simple pair of exfoliating gloves. They are inexpensive, need to be replaced often, and really work! This even makes a great free gift for your first-time clients.

Retail an effective body scrub, to help remove that dead skin and leave the skin feeling silky smooth! My pick is the Mancine Hot Salt Body Scrub - Lavender & Witch-Hazel.

It consists of marine extracts that have been blended with Australian Sea Salts then mixed with Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Soya Bean oil and fruit acids to form a deep, exfoliating body scrub to remove dry dead skin.

The perfect formulation of relaxing lavender with natural witch hazel cleanses, tones and cools the skin, with moisturizing herbal humectants acting to organically sooth and remove excess oil. Witch hazel calms skin blemishes and irritations whilst the lavender leaves your skin lightly fragranced - the perfect organic blend. Which is why it is my favorite!

Preventing Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown(zone) Triple Action Post-Depilatory Lotion

This is imported from Australia and is naturally formulated with active ingredients to reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs and bumps.

It slows and softens future hair growth, and is super moisturizing on the skin!

Client Comfort Items

We have so many options for items that can be used in service and make easy retail sales! My pick is the Kozi Shoulder Wrap!

This ultra soft shoulder wrap is designed to cover the contours of the neck and shoulders. Perfect for soothing tight, tired muscles, it will stay in place while your client walks, stands, or sits. Aromatherapy benefits are increased when it is heated in the microwave.

Just for Fun

Sheet masks, under eye masks, and lip masks are such a simple retail item. Celebrities are all over social media using them, and it is so trendy! Having these options not only give real results but are so fun!

Satin Smooth Serum Sheet Mask Display Box in Charcoal 
This Sheet Mask Collection with six customized, serum-drenched facial masks. Display box contains
24 masks, each individually wrapped for single use. Great for salon, spa and home use. Dermatologist Tested.

The Charcoal Mask is enriched with activated charcoal to help clean and purify oily skin. It also contains niacinamide and acai berry extract, which can aid in balancing skin tone and refining pores for softer, smoother-looking skin.

'Tis the Season to Educate and Exfoliate

Whether you are a business owner, esthetician, wax specialist, or really anything- maintaining healthy skin is VITAL to your business. Why?

If a client is not educated they are most likely going to blame the technician.
For example, a client gets her first bikini wax and is not told to exfoliate, or about any post-wax care. This client is likely to be dissatisfied with the service,  get ingrown hairs, and blame the waxer.

Yes, educating your clients will, in turn, boost your retail business, but that is not the ultimate goal here. It is helping with skincare, and adding long-term, repeat clients to your business.

A woman's health states "As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne."

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy."

'Tis the season for dry skin, make sure you have your bases covered.

Just Sisal While You Work!


No, I did not spell "whistle" wrong, I am writing about  Sisal!

What is  Sisal?  According to Wikipedia:
"Sisal (Agave sisalana) is an agave that yields a stiff fibre traditionally used in making twine, rope and also dartboards. The term may refer either to the plant or the fibre, depending on context. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as sisal hemp because hemp was for centuries a major source for fibre, so other fibres were sometimes named after it."
You might be asking yourself, OK Doug, what do Agave plant ropes have to do with spas/salons?  Well, it turns out that Sisal fibers are ALSO used to make a variety of exfoliation products... sponges, soap sacks, mitts, gloves, pads, brushes and more!

Sisal is used for deep exfoliation and massage of the skin, and it is frequently used dry. This type of rough exfoliation may take some getting used to, but it is a good way to slough off dead skin and reveal fresher, softer skin underneath.   Sisal is also very commonly used wet, in the shower (in a standard shower or during a Vichy Shower treatment), for slightly more gentle exfoliation.

Whether the Sisal is used wet or dry, it is best to begin with a gentle scrubbing until the skin becomes more used to the exfoliation of the sisal bristles, and then more pressure can be applied for a deeper exfoliating massage. Sisal can be used on the back as well as other rough places, such as the knees or feet, or even all over the body for a full-body exfoliating treatment. Sisal should not be used on more sensitive areas like the face.

Because the Sisal may also be able to improve circulation, some recommend always brushing in a circular motion, toward the heart. One may use a sisal brush every day, once a week, or as needed... any use can provide skin benefits!

So remember, if you offer exfoliation treatments or are looking for great retail items for home use... "Just Sisal While You Work!"
