How to Wax with Wax Paper or Sugaring Method

WAXING WITH PAPER METHOD (NOVICE)

  1. Before sugaring, make sure you cleanse and dry the area to be sugared before beginning the procedure. A powder (or towel) should be used to keep the area dry at all times. (optional)
  2. Heat the jar in a sugaring warmer, or microwave for 10-20 second increments until you can pick up soft consistency sugar. (Overheating will cause wax to become too soft and will stick to your skin):

*Our Warming Recommendation: Warm wax by dipping jar in 3/4 of hot water in pot for 3-5 minutes (test consistency up to honey like texture or up to one’s liking)

  1. Check Temperature and test on skin near wrist to make sure its not too hot and prevent burn.
  2. Use applicator stick to place an ample amount of wax and spread "thinly" to desired area (like spreading butter on bread) spread *with the grain of your hair.
  3. Place paper wax and press firmly. Leave cloth for up to 3-5 seconds pressing firmly again on paper wax.
  4. Once ready quickly pull waxing paper cloth in opposite direction of hair growth! and WALA Hooray! You DID IT!

Tip:

-If you're waxing a lot of hair.. reheat wax if wax starts to settle or use wax warmer at specific temperature for constant consistency

 

WAXING SUGARING METHOD (INTERMEDIATE)

  1. Before sugaring, make sure you cleanse and dry the area to be sugared before beginning the procedure. A powder (or towel) should be used to keep the area dry at all times. (optional)
  2. Heat the jar in a sugaring warmer, or microwave for 10-20 second increments until you can pick up soft pliable ball of sugar in your fingertips. (Overheating will cause the ball to become too soft and will stick to your skin) :

*Our Warming Recommendation: Warm wax by dipping jar in 3/4 of hot water in pot for 1-3 minutes (test consistency up to one’s liking^)

  1. Glide the sugaring paste in a fluid motion in the opposite direction of hair using your fingertips. Make 1-3 passes over the area.
  2. Flick the sugaring paste off of your skin in the direction of hair.

Tip:

- If the ball of sugaring paste sticks to the skin use a wash cloth with water to remove from skin.

- If the sugaring paste keeps getting stuck make faster passes with the sugaring paste. Use a new ball that is not overheated. Use more powder.

- Do not go over an area more than 2-3 times or you may experience bruising.

- Once the sugaring paste gets gooey throw away and grab a new ball.
