Waxes for Brazilian WaxPeople love a good Brazilian wax. Yes, it's true that first-timers feel daunted by the idea of going through a Brazilian wax when they haven't tried it and they don't know what to expect. After all, a Brazilian wax treats the most vulnerable parts of the body, namely the pubic area. Still, most people come out of it delighted by the results, and the initial discomfort is usually outshined by weeks of no pesky body hairs.

Professional Waxes are what makes Brazilian waxes practical for the esthetician and so pleasant for clients after their first session. These waxes help keep the skin safe from injuries and ensure a smooth process with even smoother results. Now, in any wax treatment, you can choose between Soft body waxes and Hard body waxes, and each option brings something to the table. Which is better for a Brazilian wax?

All You Need To Know About Hard Wax and Soft Wax

Soft waxes are probably what comes to mind when we talk about waxing in general terms. They have a honey-like texture that works perfectly in large expanses of skin like the back, the arms, and the legs. They are also ideal to save time in areas when the hair is too bushy.

Estheticians apply soft waxes with a spatula and, after a few seconds, press a waxing strip to the cooling wax to remove all the hairs in one swift pull against the direction of hair growth. This can be uncomfortable for clients during the first few tries, but it becomes much more manageable soon enough.

Hard waxes follow more or less the same process. The main difference is that estheticians don't use a waxing strip to remove the wax from the skin. Also, the wax has a slightly thicker consistency after melting; this makes it easier for the esthetician to get a firm hold of the wax strip.

Hard waxes work best in narrow areas where the skin is more sensitive, like all parts of the face, the pubic area, the happy trail, the rest of the bikini line, etc. In short, they are ideal for Brazilian wax.

What Makes Hard Waxes Popular for Intimate Waxing?

Along with the face, the bikini area is one of the parts of the body that respond perfectly to hard waxes. For this reason, hard body wax has been deemed the best choice when it comes to Brazilian waxes, even when soft waxes have branched out to better suit sensitive skins.

Esthetician using Soft WaxHere are the main advantages of using hard waxes for a Brazilian:
  • Hard waxes can be removed without using a waxing strip, so it's easier to remain precise when there's little room to move around. This also helps estheticians stay accurate while treating harder-to-reach areas if they're working with a full bikini wax.

  • They have a low melting point, so they don't need to be too hot when coming in contact with the skin.

  • They adhere to the hairs and not the skin, creating less pain for the client when it's time to remove the wax layer.

  • This also means that the wax can be used on the same area more than once without breaking the skin.

  • Hard waxes have a creamy texture that's pleasant to the senses and they leave no sticky residues behind.
This doesn't mean that soft waxes are out of the question. Soft waxes remain helpful in removing coarse, stubby hairs and, as we said earlier, there are soft waxes with a low melting point that can be applied on sensitive skins. If the label specifies that a professional body wax can be used in the pubic/bikini area, you can always offer this option to your clients, and this is always welcome for those who are familiar with the price range of hard body waxes.

Of course, you should always test the brand and make sure the skin responds properly. It's always less stressful to secure a wax distributor that you're familiar with. In the same vein, it's safer to try new products from a brand that has delivered positive results in the past.
