When is it not safe to wax an elderly female face? I have just had a client enquire for a very special occasion later in the year and I have not seen her yet. She is 75 and says she has younger looking skin. I do not know if we are talking hairy with regard to terminal or vellus hair. I understand to not wax or pluck on moles, and not to wax if the skin looks fragile. But will I know the skin is fragile just by look and touch? And then what next - use very tiny strips I guess? And stretch the skin well? I am qualified in warm wax and have been waxing for a year. I feel OK about going to have a look and doing it if all looks OK but what if it doesn't look OK. Who should I refer her to - a more experienced waxer, or not to wax at all? Any suggestions or help would be gratefully received.
