What Are the Most Popular Types of Waxing Techniques?

Waxing is a popular hair removal treatment, not only because it lasts longer and decreases your hair growth overtime, but also because there are many ways to do it. It can be overwhelming to decide which technique is right for you but rest assured - we’re here to help!

What are the different types of waxing techniques?

The choice between different types of waxing techniques depends on preference and sometimes, area of treatment. For example, the most known type is soft waxing which includes applying warm wax over the skin and swiftly removing it with a fabric or paper strip.

For more sensitive areas like the face, bikini line and intimate parts, hard wax can be favored as it sticks to the hair rather than the skin. However, there is a more natural alternative called sugaring which uses a sticky paste to remove the hair gently. 

It’s important to know the difference between each technique so you are fully informed when making a decision about which one is right for you. 

Soft Wax

A staple in the world of hair removal, strip waxing is renowned for its simplicity and effectiveness which involves applying a thin layer of wax to the skin and removing it in one swift pull. Strip waxing is one of the more popular types of waxing due to its ability to tackle various parts of the body with precision and ease. 

Hard Wax

Hard waxing is an alternative to traditional strip waxing that follows a similar process but without the use of strips. Instead of applying a thin layer of wax, you will apply a thick layer directly onto the skin and allow it to harden before swiftly removing it, without strips. Hard wax adheres to the hair rather than the skin which makes it less painful and less messy. 

Sugar Wax

In sugar waxing is a more natural process that uses a paste made from sugar, lemon juice and water to remove hair from the body. Similar to traditional waxing, the sugar wax is applied in the direction of hair growth and swiftly pulled against the direction of growth. Any residual sugar wax left may be removed with warm water, making it convenient and hassle-free.

Cold Wax

Although convenient, a less popular method out of all is cold waxing. Out of all types of waxing, cold wax involves applying pre-made wax strips directly onto the skin without heating. The strips are pressed onto the skin and quickly pulled off. This technique may not be as effective as hot or sugar waxing as the strips may not adhere as firmly to the hair, resulting in incomplete hair removal. Some people may even find it to be more painful as the strips can tug onto the

Roll-on Wax

Compared to cold wax, roll-on waxing is a more favorable technique as it is quick and convenient while following the traditional route of heated wax and strips. Simply put a cartridge into the small machine and allow it to heat for the instructed time. Once heated, you can roll the wax using its built-in applicator and use strips to remove. This technique is great for travel and reduces any mess.

Which waxing technique is best for me?

The waxing technique you choose will depend on a number of factors including your pain tolerance, skin sensitivity and personal preferences. For example, someone with low pain tolerance or sensitive skin may benefit more from more gentle methods such as sugaring or hard wax. But someone else who likes convenience and travels a lot, may opt for cold strip waxing or roll-on wax. 

The best waxing technique for you will depend on your lifestyle and preferences. We recommend experimenting with the different types of waxing styles to discover which is best for you.
