Ok kids!  March is all about wax!  Hard wax, soft wax, blue wax, black wax, all kinds of wax!  We had a waxing expert weigh in on our Advice From Our Experts column!  Rose Nunn, Educator for Berodin Wax and owner of One Woman Spa is an advocate for waxing in the spa industry.  It’s one of her favorites to perform for many reasons! 

She advises estheticians that March is the perfect time to start the conversation with clients about waxing.  “Get your clients started NOW!  If you get clients to start waxing now, they will be in much better shape, when summer rolls around!”  Rose has some great advice for you in her article in our Advice From Our Experts Column, “Waxing Tips For Estheticians”.

It’s fast easy money that gives you dedicated clients. We all know when a client trusts you with their delicate bits, they stick with you for life!  Want a list of totally devoted, life-long clients? Just  follow my Waxing Tips For Estheticians.

Get Rose’s 5 Waxing Tips 

One of my favorite takeaways from Rose’s article was in her #3 Tip!  I screamed when I read it!  

The most fun part of waxing (other than the money) is the removal!

We secretly giggle inside when we have a reactionary client. Removal should be fast.

The slower you pull a strip, the faster you will lose your client.

Pulling your strip quickly ensures that the hair comes out properly. What does that mean? That means that the hair comes out from the root, and it doesn’t break.

I know Rose really well, so reading that she secretly giggled when she had a reactionary client – just made my day!
