How to apply Meni Wax

Step 1
Define the region to be shaved and the amount of wax needed according to the Meni indication. Put the wax to heat and when it is liquid (melting point 35 to 75 ° C), test the texture and temperature on a small region of the body. For skin application, the recommended temperature is 55 to 60 ° C.


Step 2
To perform hair removal, you should apply the wax with the aid of a spatula in the direction of hair growth.

 

Step 3
Allow the wax to cool and pull quickly and in the opposite direction of hair growth, as parallel and as close to the skin as possible. If all the hairs have not come out, you can repeat the wax application or you can choose to remove the remaining hairs with tweezers.


To reduce pain at the time of waxing and to reduce the adherence of the wax to the skin, a little talcum powder can be applied to the skin and then waxed. In addition, after shaving, you should rub some oil to remove any wax, wash the shaved area and apply some moisturizer.

Tips

We share below a series of tips that will provide a better experience at waxing

BEFORE

 

1. Do your research. Even more, clients are listening to the little voice inside their head. Do they get a sketchy vibe from the aesthetician? Do they feel like you need a shower after being in the studio? Is the paper liner on the table...used? Those are red flags. Actually, they're crimson. Fuchsia even. Although it's rare that the country will specify rules about glove wearing or double-dipping (dunking the same spatula into wax that's used on other clients), it's safe to insist on the former and refuse the latter. Always offer a fresh pot of wax if a salon does practice double-dipping.

2. Be clean, obviously. Offer pre-wax wipes, but they're meant as quick refreshers for clients. And about clients, avoid booking your appointment if they are having their period. Menstruation can increase sensitivity.

3. Bonus points for exfoliating if you can offer. It's not a mandatory step, but it can mean fewer strays left behind.

 

DURING

 

4. Communicate. Before spreads a drop of wax on their skin, ask them exactly what they want. Many women now request full hair removal around the bikini line, labia, and butt, with the front trimmed and groomed. They can also go fully bare and ask for a clean sweep. Flexibility is the key, the style is their choice, regardless of what a salon's menu says. The only exception is when your place doesn't offer Brazilian waxes at all. Then you're limited.

5. With our waxes pain is a past thing, commonly, but depending on the client and their skin it may hurt a bit. Try to set up a calm and medium light environment (to be not confused with a hospital ER), keep chatting with your client as a distraction. You can also offer a slower pace if you need a beat between yanks, though some people prefer a fast and furious job. Have a medicine box on the front desk for this clients (because an Ibuprofen an hour before helps, too.)

6. Respect client inhibitions, you don't have to ask them to be a gymnast. You may have to ask them to lift this leg, turn on that side—everyone is different—but if you're asking to them to get on all fours and they are uncomfortable, don't do this. That's not the only way to remove hair. Some places even prohibit this position.

7. Act normally and avoid staring. As an aesthetician you are there to help them, not judge. You'll likely cleanse the area to be waxed, trim if necessary, and then get to it, giving them the feeling that's isn't your first rodeo.

 

AFTER

 

8. Give some pieces of advice (and don't act like you want to sell other post products, even if you do), advice them to follow the two-day rule. The first 48 hours post-wax are the most sensitive and prone to irritation or infection. During that time, avoid sex, chlorine, saltwater, exfoliation, UV rays, and products containing alpha or beta hydroxy acids. To soothe their skin. Applying hydrocortisone cream to control redness and inflammation. Warm oatmeal baths are also calming. Ask them to maintain it, exfoliating with a gentle body scrub or buffing cloth to prevent ingrowns and using lotions or oils.

9. Make all your client fell like they want to come back.
