As many spa professionals know, depilation is no longer considered a trend, but a mainstay of a successful skin care facility’s menu. As long as there is hair where people don’t want it, depilation is here to stay. Hair removal is a service that crosses all boundaries, races and religions as it has quickly become an important part of today’s beauty regimen for women and men of all ages.
The real trend in depilation today is positioning this service as a true beauty treatment—an additional opportunity to care for the skin, which goes hand-in-hand with caring about your clients’ health and safety. And one of the most key and timely factors in this trend is the importance of sanitation.
Earlier this year, the industry experienced an uproar as state officials in New Jersey made moves to ban Brazilian and other waxing services done by estheticians. These days, clients are privy to a massive amount of information at their fingertips via the Internet, and, within hours, the story spread like wildfire. Though ultimately New Jersey backed off the ban in favor of “reviewing and establishing safeguards for those who provide the service,” there are still lawsuits being persued against the New Jersey state cosmotology board.
