The best way to maintain well-groomed nose hairs for extended periods is through regular waxing. Nose hair waxing allows for precise hair removal, targeting only what's visible while preserving the protective role of nose hair in filtering out particles from the air—so you don't want to get too crazy and remove them all; just those you can see. So, if you are offering this service in your salon, the Wax Queen has all the tips to make this sensitive wax treatment a breeze – after all, no one knows noses better.
Do Start with the Right Wax
Nose hair waxing requires a delicate touch, but always rely on the effectiveness of hard wax. Hard wax clings to the hair without adhering to the skin, making it gentler on the sensitive nasal area but also highly efficient in removing unwanted hair. Another advantage of hard wax is its forgiving nature; you can revisit the area without damaging the skin.
Do Move Quickly; Don’t Wax Too Much
Nose hair waxing is done quickly, often while performing other facial waxing treatments such as eyebrows, lips, or the chin. Focusing only on what you can see, use your hard wax to create a neat strip over the front of each nostril, one side at a time. While it might seem more efficient to wax both sides at once, it's not the most comfortable experience for your client. And here’s a pro tip: the inside of the nostril is a warm and delicate environment. Thus, it's crucial to wait and allow the wax to set correctly; resist the temptation to remove it too early.
Don’t Forget Post Wax Care
Post-waxing care for the nostrils follows the same routine as the rest of the face. Start by applying a small amount of Post-Wax Essential Oil to your hands and gently massage it into the skin. Also, don't forget to advise your clients about the importance of pre and post-waxing care, as well as the benefits of consistent year-round waxing.
