Why be Professionally Waxed, and What Is the Difference Between Warm Wax and Hot Wax?
Waxing is a semi-permanent process of hair removal done via the application and subsequent removal of wax to/from the body. After waxing, hair can take anywhere between two to six weeks to regrow. Body waxing performed by a professional is relatively painless and is extremely effective.
Waxing can be painful if applied incorrectly; applied for an incorrect length of time; or if a poor-quality product is used. It is much safer, and more effective to use a professional waxing service. Professional, trained beauty therapists can apply and remove wax in pain-free ways and will achieve a much better waxing result.
When deciding which type of wax treatment to undergo, you should carefully consider the benefits and drawbacks of each. Below we have outlined exactly what the differences between warm wax and hot wax are; how they differ in application; and how they differ in performance across the body.
Warm waxing involves applying a thin layer of wax to the skin, using a spatula. A beauty therapist will then press a fabric strip on top of the wax and pull it off in swift, powerful motion, removing both the wax and the hair.
Warm wax is more efficient for large areas because it is removed straight after application, therefore is less time consuming. Warm wax can also provide a great exfoliation for your skin.

Hot waxing involves applying thick, melted wax onto the skin in a circular motion. As the wax cools it hardens, and the hairs become embedded into it. To remove hot wax, a beauty therapist will gently flick it off without the use of a strip.
Hot waxing is more effective in removing hair from delicate areas, because it causes less irritation as it doesn’t pull the skin. It also causes fewer ingrown hairs because it removes hairs directly from their root.
Hot wax is also more effective in removing short, coarse, and stubborn hairs. This is because the wax sets around each individual hair, creating a stronger bond and better grip for removal.
