Costings help

Hi
Sorry if this has been mentioned before but I tried searching and couldn't find it.

I'm trying to work out all my treatment costs and am really struggling to work out how much my waxing cost price will be. I'm an experienced waxer so I'd say I don't waste much. I'm also going to swap to a more premium brand like perron or Beridon as I've heard that although they cost more you get more treatments out of them. I know my consumables costs for each wax area. I'm just struggling how to cost the wax amount per area. I know everyone uses a different amount, and it depends on wax used and client size. I just need to work out a rough idea to make sure I'm adding enough profit to my treatments. I use hot wax for face, underarms and bikini, hollywoods (male and female) and warm wax everywhere else.

Your supplier should be able to provide a 'cost per service' as it's called

Hi
Thanks for your reply. I did ask Beridon but they said there were too many variables so couldn't help. I think Perron is going to give me one though. x

It’s not very scientific, but I allow 10% of my treatment charge as my waxing costs. Of course bodies vary, but if I calculate how much wax I’ve used over a month and then add up my waxing earnings I find that the cost of the wax is less than 10% of my earnings.

If I’m doing a Hollywood I can measure out the amount of wax I want to heat up. From time to time I can do the maths and measure out a quantity of wax equal to 10% of my charge for a Hollywood wax, remembering to divide any delivery charge between the number of bags I order a month and to add the VAT on to the cost of the packet. There’s always enough left for me to feel that my 10% allowance covers my costs.

I use wax rollers so it’s easier to measure how much I use for a pair of legs. I was never too sure how many sets of legs I got from a pot of wax, but my overall spend on pots of wax every order was less than 10% of my waxing income since my last order.

I check my costings from time to time by doing an audit and monitoring how much wax I use over a month and then adding up my waxing income. It’s good to have a feel for product costs.
