OUR HAIR REMOVAL METHODS
The beauty team specialise in three different hair removal treatments for men and women, strip waxing, hot waxing and threading.
We offer hot waxing which works for men and women and gently removes hair from legs, arms, intimate and bikini areas, underarms, back, lip and chin. This option is not permanent hair removal but it will keep you hair-free for up to six weeks and is almost painless.
Hot waxing uses a higher temperature than warm wax and has a thicker consistency. It’s excellent for removing short, stubborn hairs and is very well suited for the facial and intimate areas.
The hot wax we use at the Quiff Salon is gentle and effective enough for even the most sensitive areas so it’s soothing while it works hard to remove hair. Once it’s applied, it stays on the skin for a few moments and then it begins to solidify, at that point, the beauty therapist swiftly pulls it away in one fast action, removing the hair.
Hot Waxing Advantages:
- It works well on short hair
- It is perfect for coarse, thick hair
- If you have sensitive skin, it’s ideal for you
- It doesn’t leave any stickiness
- It’s hygienic – we never re-use our spatulas!
- There’s less reddening after treatment
- Hot wax is suitable for intimate areas
As well as hot waxing, we offer strip waxing which involves a thin layer of hot wax spread on the area in question and then removed very quickly, using a paper strip. We recommend this for less sensitive areas and larger areas, such as the legs and underarms. It’s also ideal for the upper lip and chin area.
Strip waxing leaves you smooth and hair-free for up to six weeks and is a highly effective hair removal treatment.
Strip Waxing Advantages:
- It’s great for super-smooth arms and legs
- Strip wax can be used on intimate areas
- Works well for underarms
- Leaves limbs smooth and hair-free for longer
- It’s an excellent option for facial hair removal
We are proud to offer the ancient art of threading, which is an excellent option to get rid of hair from the upper lip and chin in seconds. Highly effective, it is also perfectly suitable to create stunning eyebrows.
Threading is quick and easy with no downtime. It involves using fine thread and the beauty therapist creates quick, twisting movements with the thread while running it over the hair to remove it.
You may experience slight skin reddening around the area of treatment which soon disappears, usually in less than half an hour. So, rather than using hair removal at home kits, visit a reputable hair removal salon and show off hair-free limbs for weeks on end.
- It is excellent for facial hair removal
- It is great for sensitive skin, especially if waxing isn’t an option
- There is no product applied to the area of treatment
- It’s accurate and long-lasting
