Strip wax is used for larger areas like legs and arms and is a warm wax applied to the skin, adheres to both the skin and hair and is removed quickly with a wax strip. Hot Wax is better for smaller, more sensitive areas and is applied to the skin with an oil barrier, only adheres to the hair, and is removed quickly without any wax strips. Hot Wax is usually better for more intimate areas e.g bikini area due to their sensitivity. Our therapists will always advise you on what method is best for you prior to doing the treatment. Please note, for intimate areas we will only use hot wax.
