How is Waxing Done
Most waxings sessions take around 15 - 30 minutes.

The waxer will get a waxing insert into a pot of hot wax and then place it on the skin and hair.
Next your therapist can apply a cloth strip over the warm wax, then by pressing down firmly on the wax the cloth hair and wax will adhere to each other.
When the wax has cooled, the strip will be removed, taking the hairs out by the roots – This is the painful bit!
