Following on from my recent post about skin lifting… how do you inform a client about wax injuries?
It’s enough to make any therapist’s heart sink: you pull a strip of wax off and realise with horror that it’s left behind a nice, shiny graze or a big ol’ bruise.

Tight clothing is the enemy of freshly waxed skin. Encourage customers to skip the skinny jeans and posh pants for any below-the-belt appointments: that skin-hugging fabric is only going to rub in all the wrong places.
