Strip Wax: A Swift, Efficient Tool
Many aestheticians use strip wax to get the job done. Groupon’s study of this sticky subject shows how this method leaves you silky smooth.
Hot and sticky: that’s strip wax. When heated, it attains a consistency similar to honey. It takes its name from what happens next—the waxer lays cloth strips over the molten surface, getting a good handle on the otherwise messy stuff. She then swiftly tugs on the strip against the direction of hair growth, pulling off the wax and any hairs caught in its grip.
Also known as soft wax, strip wax is deal for deforesting large areas, such as the legs or chest, because it can be done swiftly and in significant swathes. The wax itself does stick directly to the skin, which means it can remove a tiny bit of surface skin and cause irritation for those with sensitive skin. Often, aestheticians will use soft wax in combination with hard wax to more efficiently smooth out skin or prep a gorilla for surgery.
