Having trouble removing hair while Bikini Waxing? It could be due to one of the following:
 
The hair is not long enough. Hair should be at least 1/4 inches long to Bikini Wax.

The Bikini Wax wax strip was pulled off too slowly or in the wrong direction.

The Bikini Wax strip was not applied immediately after wax application
and rubbed firmly for 3-4 seconds in the direction of hair growth.


For better Bikini Wax wax adhesion, lightly dust the area with talcum powder to absorb any excess
oil or moisture on the skin before waxing (eplilation). Slight irritation is normal after any Bikini waxing
session, but swollen, discolored or irritated skin could be the result of poor technique. 

When pulling off the Bikini Wax wax strip, hold the skin taut and pull the wax strip off parallel to the skin. If your client experiences discomfort, apply gentle pressure to the area with your fingertips. Ice also works to decrease sensitivity. You can also use
GiGi Bikini Wax Soothing Cream with 2% Lidocaine, a 'numbing' lotion designed specifically for use before and after Bikini waxing.
Make sure the bikini wax is at the correct temperature – too hot will burn your client, and too cold will cause the cotton muslin strip to rip or not adhere properly to the wax.
 
Your client may be sensitive to waxing, or reacting to the Bikini Wax you’re using. GiGi's Crème Wax is the ideal method of hair removal for clients with sensitive skin or for hair removal in delicate areas. Crème Wax is a smooth Crème formula recommended for sensitive skin types. Crème Wax conditions the skin when applied and leaves the skin silky.
Crème Wax melts at medium temperatures.

 
Before your client leaves, here are a few tips to pass along to them:
To minimize the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs, avoid wearing tight clothing over newly waxed areas.

Exfoliate the skin 24 to 48 hours after the waxing session to prevent the build up of dead skin cells
(which will result in ingrown hairs.)

After waxing, men and women are advised to use GiGi Slow Grow  growth inhibitor to prevent hair growth or to slow down the growth of new hair.

Do not expose newly waxed areas to the sun for at least 48 hours after treatment. A good sun block is also recommend to protect the skin. Body Drench Sundown SPF 30 Spray is formulated with Wheat Germ Oil, renowned for its anti-inflammatory, hydrating and soothing properties.
 
Because skin tends to be more sensitive right before and right after your menstrual cycle, waxing can be more painful. Try to avoid scheduling waxing sessions 3-4 days before and 3-4 days after your period.
 
 
Bikini Wax Clean Up:
 
Keeping your waxing station and surrounding areas free of wax is easy using ... GiGi Sure Clean is a no-rinse formula that is perfect for maintaining your wax warmer as well as most salon surfaces. In addition to wax, this all-purpose cleaner also removes chewing-gum, grease, crayons and lipstick from carpets, floors and upholstery.
 
To keep your wax station and roller heads clean, wipe them with GiGi Sure Clean after each use. 
 Sure Clean can also be used to remove wax residue from counter tops and other surfaces.
 
Other Clean-Up Tips:
 
Used epilation (muslin strips), GiGi wax applicators and empty wax cans can get messy if you’re not careful.
Use disposable bags to protect wastebaskets from bikini wax residue.
 
Cover waxing stations and treatment tables with disposable paper or clean sheets between clients. Not only is it sanitary, but this simple step will prevent these areas from getting sticky.
 
Before applying wax, clean one side of the wax applicator by rubbing it against the rim of the wax can. 
 Too much wax on the wax applicator can drip, making a mess of your waxing station and your client!
Also, always use a new wax applicator with each new client.
 

Before waxing you should consider the following precautions:
- To eliminate after wax redness, recommend that clients take an antacid 1-1/2 hours before the wax service.

Do not wax over moles or warts.

- Do not wax clients that have the following condition:
Sunburn, diabetes, phlebitis, recent scar tissue, or other skin conditions.

- Due to the side effects of increased sensitivity and irritation,
it is not recommended that you wax clients that are using Retin A, Accutane, Tetracycline or Glycolic Acid.

- Be aware that during pregnancy clients can experience increased water retention.

- During the 24-hour period following a waxing service,
the client should avoid hot baths, tanning beds, saunas or other heat treatments.
