A huge part of our lives seems to revolve around hair. We spend time and money trying to grow the hair on our head, whilst getting rid of it from everywhere else. So there's a fair chance you'll be looking for waxing in Brisbane.
There are many different techniques for getting rid of unwanted hair but waxing seems to be the most popular. It's quick, affordable and accessible. What's more, when you've been doing it for a while, you get used to the pain!
Hair waxing in one form or another has been around since the time of the Ancient Egyptians. Now this was a race that really disliked body hair and spent a huge amount of time getting rid of it. The Egyptians used formulas made from beeswax and sugar-based recipes. Clearly they worked as they pretty much form the basis of what we use today.
Most people have also tried razors, tweezers and those smelly depilatory creams. Whilst they do the job, they are quite unpleasant to use. Shaving in particularly is a bad idea for legs and underarms, as it just encourages the hair to grow back thicker and courser.
Waxing techniques vary from salon to salon, with different waxes used for the more sensitive areas. Hot wax is generally used for legs, smoothed on with a spatula or roller and then ripped off using fabric strips. This is usually referred to as soft wax.
Hard or stripless wax is still heated up and smoothed on but doesn't require fabric strips for removal. The wax sets hard around the hairs and becomes a strip naturally. This technique is popular for facial and intimate waxing.
Waxing offers many benefits. It's quick and pulls the hairs out by the roots. Over time the hairs will get finer and sparser, too, which is another great advantage. You'll find plenty of salons listed on Bookwell that offer waxing services so hop on and find one in your area.
