Hot Pink Stripes Aren’t Cool
If you wax brows, lips or chins you need to calm & correct after! Products for after waxing are so important. No one wants to walk around with hot pink racing stripes on their eyebrows! If they didn’t want hair on their chin, they don’t want a patch of pink, inflamed skin either! No matter what you’ve heard, kissable lips are always the goal, a strip of pink irritation where a hairy lip used to be isn’t sexy!
Help Them Save Face: Waxing Products For After Waxing
You’ve all seen it, the split second you pull the strip during a brow wax or a lip wax – BOOM – the pink flush! You know it’s not the wax, the utensil you used or your skill. You know it’s the clients’ skin. The only problem in this situation? The client may not know that! It’s your job to calm that irritation.
PRO TIP: Own That Irritation
That’s right! Openly acknowledge it. “Looks like your skin is somewhat sensitive to waxing. You’re getting a little pink, which is totally normal. I have an amazing product that will calm your skin right back down!”
Pink’s Cool Everywhere Else
It’s a bit of a double standard! But you could literally have a client’s arm, leg, back or bikini turn a little pink and clients can easily shrug it off as an acceptable reaction after a wax, but when it’s on their face, it’s a totally different story. Fear of scarring is very real for clients who experience irritation and inflammation, especially the the first time it happens.
That’s why we’ve reached out to our team of skincare guru’s to get you some help! We have a list of post wax soothers that you’re sure to love and that will help you save face!
