Waxing Tidbits – Home Waxing Kits

Is a home waxing kit ever a good idea?

Well….In my opinion…No.

I have heard many stories over the years about people waxing themselves or others at home.  Some are quite funny but others have been horror stories.  The latest was last week.

A client of mine came in and told me she tried to wax her boyfriend recently. She said “My wax girl makes it look so easy so I thought, what the heck, lets give it a try!”

She started with his arms and decided to pour the wax on rather than use a wax stick. She didn’t think about testing the temperature first and ended up caused 2nd degree burns on her boyfriend’s arm. They ended up in the emergency room and he had to get a prescription for burn cream. My client thought she could save him money by waxing him at home… he ended up with an ER bill, prescription bill and lets not forget the pain the poor guy went through.

Moral of the story… go to a professional, this is what we have gone to school for and do all day, everyday.
