TYPES OF WAXES

Waxing is a form of a semi-permanent hair removal system, though different to shaving in which wax pulls the hairs directly from the root. As shaving only eliminates the hairs that can be seen on the surface of the leg, instead of removing the hair from its root bulb; like waxing does.
In today’s society, almost any part of the body can be waxed; for example eyebrows, face, feet, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet.
