The rapid growth of waxing treatments in the health and beauty industries is largely due to waxing specialists becoming well-versed in advanced waxing techniques, while complementing them with advanced delivery systems that offer more hygienic approaches. Technicians are also going that extra mile to educate their clients on the importance of after-care by offering a selection of retail take-home products.

Waxing is an extremely safe way to remove unwanted hair and it is one of the most lucrative treatments offered by a spa, due to its low upfront costs. An $11 can of wax may return up to $900 in services. So, if your establishment is not waxing, it may be time to consider it. And here is how to get started.

Waxing systems

Buying a pre-assembled waxing starter kit is no different than buying a car. It is an investment, and you should take every step to research your purchase thoroughly. Do not just seek the most inexpensive one. Examine its features and benefits. Check that the equipment is listed and tested by Underwriters Laboratories (UL)—a trusted product compliance source—and that is it easy to keep clean. Ask yourself how hygienic the system is, and does it look sturdy enough, because this system will be put to the test once you get going.
