If you’re reading this, you fall into one of two categories: those who have been involved directly in a sticky situation or those hoping they never will. Unfortunately, if you wax or plan to wax, sooner or later you will come face to face with a sticky situation.
Most have heard at least one waxing horror story that chills you to the bone—the kind of story that turns clients curious about waxing into clients who will never get waxed for fear of having the same experience. These stories have become legendary in the waxing community. and they grow bigger and hairier with each telling.
From the experienced to the inexperienced, when these incidents happen, it seems to catch all involved off-guard. Somehow, skin care professionals have been conditioned to believe that waxing is a simple service that always goes smoothly—pun intended—and if something goes wrong, it’s completely out of the ordinary. This mind-set is totally ridiculous and unrealistic.
