During a back wax, it can be a struggle to reach all of the hair on the sides of the torso with your client lying flat on the couch, especially on more hirsute customers where their back and chest hair connects. That darn table top keeps getting in the way!
But there is an easy and comfortable way to reach these areas without the need for any awkward twisting.

When finishing a waxing service in areas like the lower back, upper arms, buttocks and speedo line, it can be tricky to create a natural looking transition between freshly waxed skin and the remaining body hair.
Blending is a great way to soften an obvious line between hair and hairlessness, and clients appreciate the attention to detail. You can use wax or electric clippers, or a combination of both.

Skin lifting is usually pretty easy to spot in the treatment room: a red mark or shiny pink patch of tender skin is a sign that the uppermost layers of the epidermis have been removed by the wax, resulting in a superficial graze. Sometimes, however, lifting only becomes apparent once the client has left our care and we get a panicked phone call or email the next day.
Minor grazes of this nature will generally heal very quickly – they’ll stay pink for a day or two and then either ‘dry peel’ (like sunburn) or form a scab, with no lasting signs of injury. The process can be helped along by applying an antiseptic cream at home and avoiding UV exposure of the affected area until healed.

As with all skincare services, using the correct homecare products will help waxing clients get the best long term results from their treatment. But it seems that so many salons don’t know how, or tend to neglect, the retail side of hair removal.
Here's a little piece with a few thoughts to get you started, from the April 2017 issue of Professional Beauty magazine.
