Waxing Emergency?

The New Year rush has died down and soon will be the Valentine's Day rush. With the potential for an increase in waxing clients before this lovers holiday, how confident are you in your wax warmers?

You've noticed the temperature becoming inconsistent or taking longer than usual to heat to the right temperature? You've been so busy with New Year's that you've been putting off upgrading? Now is the time to make this a priority. You don't want to be caught during Valentine's season cancelling appointments or turning aware clients because your warmer broke, and you don't have any back ups.

Even if you were ahead of the game and have already updated your warmers. Did you throw out the old ones, or keep for back up? There are some smaller sized warmers that make excellent backups in case of emergency. Here are a few of our waxing specialists preferred ones:

Starpil Starter Wax Warmer
Berodin Single Warmer
Cirepil Wax Warmer/Heater - The Happy Heater
The Melting Pot Professional Wax Warmer by Spilo
Depileve Intro Warmer

Don't be the place reviewed for ruining someone's Valentines Day, when it is completely preventable!

Salt vs Sugar Scrubs

Aside from the obvious difference, do your clients know which would be better for their skin? Clients may not always know the same information we think they do, and could be using the wrong product for their skin type or dermatological concerns.

While both exfoliate the skin, sugar tends to be less abrasive, making it preferable for clients with sensitive skin and gentler for use on the face or newly waxed skin. Sugar scrubs also tend to be more hydrating for the skin.

Salt scrubs are more abrasive, which makes them excellent for exfoliating before body treatments, are great for reducing inflammation and since salt is known for antibacterial properties, making it good for acne.

From back bar to retail sizing, we've got effective, profitable and great smelling options for both salt and sugar so you can customize for your clients!

Waxing with Sugar?

Allow me to introduce Sugar Pro Professional Nourishing Hair Removal from the Makers of Moom. Although it needs no introduction as it was flying off the warehouse shelves last week.

I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Sugar Pro Hair Removal selection HERE!

Well, Cirepil has a wax warmer that will make them smile. The Happy Heater holds 14oz tins and it's smiling face will garner a second glance from your clients.

Waxing is not just a service for women anymore. It is becoming more and more common that men from all walks of life are coming to the salon for waxing services as well. So why not offer a wax that is specifically designed just for them?

This wax contains salicylic acid to help prevent ingrown hairs, ginseng to revitalize and repair, and castor and sunflower seed oils to help moisturize and calm.

Follow the 3-Step Process from Epillyss for The Most Satisfied Wax Clients Ever!

 No two waxers are the same, and Epillyss understands that. That's why Epillyss has designed their full line of waxes, each with varying properties that make it easy to choose a wax that works best with your personal waxing style.

The entire Epillyss waxing line of products has been designed around a 3-step process, to help each and every waxing technician provide the very best depilation service for all of their clients, ensuring technician and client satisfaction, again and again.


STEP 1: PRE-DEPILATORY
The first step in any waxing service is the preparation of the skin for hair removal. Sanitization is an important part of this step, to ensure client's health and safety. In addition, this step is very comforting to your clients, leaving them cleansed and refreshed.
  • Pre-Depilatory Magnolia Gel - Featuring mint essential oil, this pre-depilatory gel sanitizes and numbs the area to be wax, reducing sensitivity by up to 20%.
  • Pre-Depilatory Lotion - Quickly disinfect the skin prior to depilation. This lotion contains benzalconium chloride, known for its powerful antiseptic properties against germs, bacteria, and yeast. This product is alcohol-free, and will not dry the skin or tighten the pores.
  • Pre-Depilatory Microtalc - Apply to sensitive areas to ensure comfort during the waxing service. Epillyss has designed this microtalc especially for waxing purposes, featuring a pure mineral base without fragrance or additives. By applying Microtalc to absorb moisture, the traction on the skin is greatly reduced, resulting in a more comfortable wax service, with less irritation following the depilation.

STEP 2: DEPILATORY
Next comes the heart of the service - the waxing! Epillyss waxes have been developed featuring different characteristics, making each wax a unique solution for estheticians everywhere! Epillyss waxes feature Bioresin C3, and exclusive ingredient formulated by Epillyss. The use of Bioresin C3 allows for a lower level of oil in each Epillyss wax, resulting in ultra-low melting points, quick and fluid application, and many more remarkable benefits.
  • Sensor Wax - Featuring oligo, Sensor wax grips all types of hairs, with reduced traction on the skin. This wax enjoys an ultra-fluid texture, and features extracts of lavender and lemon. Sensor is a favorite for bikini waxes.
  • Novatherm Wax - This shiny "Barbie" wax contains vasodilating properties, making this the perfect wax for short or stubborn hair removal. Full of trace elements, Novatherm enjoys an exceptionally fluid gel consistency which allows for a very efficient wax.
  • Millenia Wax - Featuring lavender essential oil, this wax is not only a beautiful color, but it minimizes pain, redness, and soreness due to its vasodilating and calming properties. This strong wax is idea for bikini and underarm waxes.
  • Chocolat Wax - Cocoa is an integral ingredient in the Chocolat Wax, which provides vitamin E and antioxidant properties to prevent skin dehydration during the depilation services. The chocolate fragrance is comforting, and the creamy gel consistency applies thin, allowing for a very efficient wax.
  • Sensitive Skin Wax - Featuring a high natural level of vitamins, proteins, mineral salts, and oligio elements, the Sensitive Skin wax stimulates the skin and tightens the pores after depilation, assisting in minimizing ingrown hairs. While this wax is good for all skin and hair types, it is especially recommended for those with sensitive skin. Added sea collagen ensure the skin is moisturized and left feeling silky soft.
  • Natural Honey Wax - A natural antiseptic, the healing properties of honey have been recognized for at least 4,000 years. This wax is fluid, easy to apply, and ideal for all skin and hair types. 
  • White Queen Wax - Epillyss' #1 selling wax, White Queen is milky and easy-to-apply. Featuring zinc oxide, which is known for its antiseptic and purifying properties, this wax is perfect for sensitive skin.
  • Azulen Wax - Apple Green in color, this wax contains German Chamomile to calm and soothe the skin during the waxing process. This wax has a liquid consistency, and is very easy to apply.

STEP 3: POST-DEPILATORY
Every story needs a great ending, and your waxing service does too! During the waxing process, the layer of dead skin cells are removed along with the hair, sometimes leaving the skin red, sore, and inflamed. The Post-Depilatory step is designed to soothe this aggravated skin, while removing any wax residue and moisturizing the skin as well. Again, Epillyss nods to esthetician's differences, and offers post-depilatory products in creams, oils, or gels. Choose your favorite!
  • Post-Depilatory Azulene Oil - This anti-inflammatory oil was developed to gently remove wax residue while calming and soothing freshly waxed skin. This versatile, best-selling oil can be mixed with the Aloe Post-Depilatory Gel, Vitamin E Post-Depilatory Cream, or Collagen Post-Depilatory Milk to amp up the hydration results.
  • Post-Depilatory Collagen Milk - Hydrate, tone, and sooth freshly waxed skin with this moisturizing powerhouse! Containing vitamins, proteins, mineral salts, and micronutrients,  Epillyss Collagen Milk is not only perfect to drench the skin in moisture after waxing, but try it during your manicures and pedicures, too!
  • Aloe Post-Depilatory Gel - A Pure Spa Direct FAVORITE - this Aloe Gel is ideal for post-depilatory soothing and healing. The cooling effect of aloe is extremely soothing to irritated skin, and it leaves your client feeling, cool, refreshed, and moisturized.
