It is important to choose right place to wax your body.  It takes very long time to heal once skin is damagd.

How do you choose a place to wax your precious body? Some people choose the spa based on Reviews, Quality, Location, Opening hours and/or Price. Here is my advice on how to choose Your Salon or Spa especially for waxing.

First of all, I can not change the location and Opening hours of other Spa. We will talk about Private or not, Quality and Prices. Checking reviews is one of the ways to research, however, most clients prefer not sharing their wax in public, because waxing can be too private.

1.Private Salon or Spa?

Advantage of Private Salon is always getting the same esthetician (Me). You will always stay with me. So I know your body, personality and you also feel less shy with more visits. If you feel comfortable and have great results. You get a good experience every visit. Also I noticed that some clients, especially male, prefer not to see many people in Spa to show everyone in the waiting room “Hello I am here to do Brazilian!!”

Disadvantage of Private Salon is that relying on an esthetician can be inconvenient such as stopping working all the sudden or leaving for a long vacation. Also in high season she or he can be too busy to find you a spot for last minutes.

Advantage of spa is usually much easier to get appointments however it can be always different estheticians. Some clients are OK for that but it is definitely a different result and quality. You are not only going to remove your hair but also stay on table for hours with an esthetician, so it is always better to spend time with someone you feel more comfortable with. Also if you are going for multiple services such as manicure, pedicure and facial service etc, Spa is the place for your special day.

2.Quality : When you want to wax Brazilian, Ask Which Wax does she use hard or soft?

If you are going to wax your Brazilian area (Private), Please ask the esthetician which wax they use. There are 2 types of wax (or more). One is Hard (hot) wax the other one is Soft(warm) wax. If your esthetician uses Soft (warm) wax for Brazilian please run away !!

The difference between Hard wax and Soft wax

Hard wax with wooden stick

Hard wax : Perfect for Brazilian area, face and under arms. Hard wax is applied with a wooden stick and removed with the same stick. Hard wax is removing less skin and is great for sensitive areas. Sometimes it is difficult to remove the small hair. Hard wax is more expensive and difficult to control.

Softwax is with strips

Soft wax : Great for a big surface but not too sensitive such as back, arms and legs. Soft wax is applied with a stick and removed with cotton or paper strips. Personally, cotton strips have less hair breaks and better results. Soft wax is removing more hair than Hard wax however it is harsh on your skin. It is no problem for your back, arms and legs, but really bad on your private parts, especially on penis and testicles. Soft wax is usually less expensive than Hard wax and it is easier to control.

Here is an example of my client who has been suffering from this result below. This is after 5 weeks of Brazilian wax with Soft wax.

As for price, Spa is usually more expensive than private salon because it costs Spa more maintenance fee or wages for employees. Also depending on locations. On the other hand, usually the private salon can offer a more reasonable price.

If you ask me, I would tell you to think very carefully because as I show you in the photo above, once you get the horrible result, it will take a long time to heal.


Private salon is great for those who are looking for private, same quality all the time, build relationship with aesthetician and  reasonable.
