Waxing-Poetic on the Taboo

It is time talk about one of the most taboo subjects in the Beauty Industry - Double Dipping, i.e., using the same wax applicator stick to apply wax to each and every client, day in and day out. Whether it is for an eyebrow or for a Brazilian, 90% of the spas and salons I have been to double dip and use the same half of 1 penny stick. In fact, one of my new favorite spas, which went to the effort and expense of purchasing autoclaves for their nail equipment, also employs the double dip method.

Whenever I try a new spa for a waxing procedure, I am laying on the table bracing for impact. And no, not for the scalding hot wax that will rip my hair out and the first layer of skin off, but rather, for the germ-infested applicator stick that has been used on toes, eyebrows, underarms, va-jayjays and every other part on the human body. In addition, questioning the methods used by the woman wielding said wax is a next-to-impossible undertaking, since the last thing anyone wants to do is anger the hair remover.

The practice is so widespread, in fact, that a select few spas and salons are advertising the fact that they do not double dip - an act of common sense that is not so common. Its about time for everyone else to get in on the trend of New Dip = New Stick. This practice is a necessity to help maintain the cleanliness of your salon and or spa and the comfort of your clients. You did not work so hard to build business, only to be brought down by a 4.5" piece of wood.

So - how do you implement this change in the most cost effective way for your spa? Purchase Mega Bundles of waxing applicators from Pure Spa Direct. We carry all sizes, from Large to Extra Small. See below for the Cost Breakdown:
Make the switch today. Update the hygienic practices in your spa and do your part to end Double Dipping!

Time to Outgrow Your Ingrowns!


I think we all can agree that one of the most frustrating aspects of beautification is the inevitable ingrown hair. After going through the time, effort and expended money to receive a depilatory treatment such as, say, a bikini wax, seeing those unsightly red bumps can cause any lady, or gent' for that matter, to quit waxing altogether.

There are mutiple things that you can suggest and sell to your clients to prevent ingrown hairs:

  • Exfoliation prior to the waxing service - SluffWipes!
  • Upgrade them to a Moisturizing Wax - Greenepil!
  • Post Depilatory Treatments - Tend Skin!

  • One of the absolute best Post-Depilatory products is the TEND SKIN Skin Care Line. Discovered by accident, this lotion works to prevent and heal ingrown hairs and razor bumps experienced by men and women alike. This is a fantastic product to apply before and after a depilatory treatment, plus you can retail it for increased profits and client satisfaction! Here are the recommended steps for Professional Use:
    1. For clients who have a history of Ingrown Hairs, recommend that they purchase and use Tend Skin prior to their next depilatory treatment. Advise them to apply it 2 times a day, preferably after showering and before going to bed.
    2. After the depilatory treatment has been completed, use a cotton pad to apply the Tend Skin liquid to the applicable area. Enough product should be applied so as to leave the skin damp.
    3. Advise your client to wait for the liquid to dry before he or she gets dressed, as this product may stain clothing.
    4. Retail Tend Skin Liquid to your clients. Since it takes about 1 week for an ingrown hair to form, advise them to wait one week, then apply the lotion to the treated area every couple of days.

    Think Green... Cirepil Green Wax, That Is!


    How do you obtain a competitive advantage amongst other waxing salons? With Cirepil's Green - a superior wax on Today’s market by a leading wax manufacturer.
    As a representative for Pure Spa Direct, I am constantly looking to find the best of the best wax products to recommend. I have always favored Cirepil products because they ensure maximum results. After hearing about Green, I had to try it. I am a huge fan of every wax by Cirepil, but Green is by far the best wax I have ever tried. Green is a vegetable-based hard wax that is enriched with sunflower oil, shea butter, and candelilla- all moisturizing ingredients that will leave your skin baby smooth. As a hard wax, the thin texture makes it extremely easy to apply for the technician. The special formula is designed to adhere to the hair, with less traction on the skin, making the process as painless as possible for the client. As an Italian, having thick coarse hair, and very sensitive skin, waxing has always been ridiculously painful. It is the dreaded torture that you just can’t wait to be over. Of all the wax products, Green provided me with the most pleasurable wax experience (if that’s even possible)! The enriching based formula left my skin feeling silky, smooth, and moisturized. I was truly amazed at the results and how little it hurt compared to other wax products!

    It is a highly competitive market, and it is important to distinguish your salon from your competitors. Offering clients a premier wax at your salon like Green, will enhance their spa experience and ensure impeccable results. Clients will become repeat customers, and they will bring their friends. Next time you’re considering introducing a wax product into your spa or salon that will ensure customer satisfaction and distinguish you from the clutter….Think Green!
