    Waxing phd

    I've used it for over a year now, I did have the Ellisons training, but so long as you allow the machine to heat up for at least 20 minutes on 10, then turn down to 7 or 8 then it's fine. And yes, the tea tree wax is very thick, stick to the honey wax.

    Galvanic Electrolysis hair removal

    Hi, there seems to be conflicting info (college tutor and books etc) so thought you guys may be able to help. I've read that for galvanic (not blend, just pure galvanic) electrolysis you shouldn't use an insulated needle - is that right, my tutor said it's OK to use, but the books say...

    Waxing And Sticky Bits!

    I've just started working in a salon and the owner's suggested that the client not go figure of four, but just "roll" leg outwards, but still lying flat so that I do the outside of the hair, then client can help stretch her pubic mound area over and you can do the bit next to pubic mound, then...

    How much info on client record cards???

    I take them down as a precaution, as was said earlier in case of emerg, but also could be useful as a double check, eg: if you need a doctors letter and the client brings one in, you can check that it's from the correct people?? All the cards I've see in and out of college and in different...
