Speed, efficiency, ease, client comfort and smooth skin—these are the goals when performing any Brazilian service. Accomplishing these results requires a plan of attack.

The most important consideration when waxing is sanitation. Clients are becoming more and more sanitation savvy and will be on the lookout for anything that appears unclean. With that in mind, you should always wear gloves and never double dip, which is the practice of using the same stick and dipping it in the wax pot over and over for one or more clients. No stick should be dipped in the wax more than once. Dip, apply wax, toss and grab a clean stick.

Plan of attack

Without the proper plan in place, the waxing process could turn into chaos. It doesn’t matter if you work from back to front or front to back. What matters is how you work. The object is to work smarter, not harder. This is accomplished by developing a strategy that you will follow each time you perform your Brazilian service.

Knowing where to start, what to wax and in what order to wax it takes away the guesswork and allows you to focus on the task at hand, and flow from beginning to end with ease.
