Why Beat Around the Bush?

Cirepil Epillyss Waxing

Firstly, while there's no substitute for having great technique, using a Better Wax yields Better Results, and leads to Better Business.
Some of you Wax Pros have already got this figured out - maybe some are using the waxes in this post, while others may have a different favorite wax. But for those who are still "dipping around" trying to find that tried and true, dependable, reliable, consistent, efficient wax to use in their services, this one's for you. If you were to ask me, as I lay on your facial bed, "What waxes would you recommend?" For a Hard Wax, I would say, hands down:
Cirepil Cristalline Wax KitCirepil Cristalline Hard Wax - For any client with any hair type. Use this for your brows, lip, face, back, chest, bikini, brazilian, underarms and anywhere you want to use a hard wax.
  • It's easy to work with!
  • It doesn't break or crack!
  • It isn't stringy!
  • It's low-temperature and more comfortable for your client
  • It's less painful and more gentle on the skin!
  • There's less redness after the wax
  • It's great at picking up fine hair on the face and strong enough to efficiently and effectively remove coarse, thick hair
Truly, Cirepil has hit it out of the park with this one. We believe it's the most versatile.
Let's talk profit:
Using a conservative estimate, let's say you perform 8 full Brazilians at $60 a pop per $38.80 Bag of wax. That's about $4.85 for your wax cost per service. Let's estimate that you use about $2.00 of other supplies (sticks, pre/post wax products, wipes, etc) during the service. Assuming each Brazilian is a 30 minute service, that's roughly $425 (gross profit) in your pocket for 4 hours of work. Not including any tips! With these margins, is there any reason to be using a cheap, frustrating, inconsistent, unreliable, and more painful wax on your clients?

Want to further increase those profit margins? You can start by decreasing the cost per bag. If it makes sense for your business, buy more bags at a time to take advantage of our Volume Discounts, and watch your bottom line improve.

Now, for a Soft Wax, I would say:

Epillyss Sensor Soft WaxEpillyss Sensor Soft Wax - this is, by far, our #1 Selling Soft Wax and for good reason. Use this for brows and full body (anywhere you prefer to use a soft wax).
  • It's efficient and effective - it does a fabulous job of getting all of the hair in the first pass
  • It's ideal for any hair type - from fine, short hair to coarse, thick, dense hair
  • Due to the low application temperature, it feels great to your client when applied
  • Using firm pressure and the edge of the spatula, it spreads thinly, which allows you to use less wax per treatment
  • It leaves little to no sticky "residue" on the skin - less cleanup!
  • It's less painful than many waxes on the market when removed - more comfortable service for your client!
  • It's gorgeous and smells delicious (from natural essential oils and fruit extracts in the wax). We love opening boxes of this stuff!

In conclusion, you really can't go wrong when choosing a Cirepil Hard Wax or an Epillyss Soft Wax. Given good technique, they are all reliable in effectively removing hair in the most efficient way possible, in turn helping you provide the best wax service for your client. And, what do you think this does for your client retention?

If it were our business, our preference would be to keep it simple and stick to 2 waxes - a Hard and a Soft. These are simply the 2 waxes we would use in our own wax business. Happy Waxing, y'all!
