I've been waxing females for about 20 years. But I trained in male waxing with Axiom who is awesome!
A female Brazilian/Hollywood takes me between 7-10 minutes tops. I don't know why it takes any longer? It really baffles me. Clients want to be in and out with this kind of wax. Who wouldn't right? They're shocked at how quick and relatively pain free it is....but I honestly don't know why other salons are taking so long. I average between 4-6 new wax clients per week as clients love how quick they can get waxed. I have repeat clients each month and don't miss any stray hairs.
What brand of wax do you use Wendy?

Are you using hot or strip wax? I would love to get to this level - obviously it has taken years but do you have any wisdom you could share? x

I trained first with Lycon here in Ireland, I went on a 6 hour round trip journey to Dublin to a well know Brazillian Waxing Specialist salon and had private one to one training. It was mediocre at best, I never felt fully confident with waxing, It used to take me an hour and half to do my first few Brazilians and then i got it down to about an hour (god only knows what i was doing for an hour haha)

I wanted to be the best I could be at brazilian waxing so I traveled over to england to Kim and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made :) Coming out of the training I was already far more confident at waxing and within a few months nothing scared me and I am able to do a brazilian in 20 mins for regulars and 30 for new clients (this includes welcoming them, right up to taking payment). I have clients who come from as far away as longford (3.5 hours away from me) and arrange their visits to family around their waxing appointment just so they can come to me :)

The only downside I could see is that i did not find Lycon wax compatible with kims method of waxing, I found it too brittle. It was an easy decision for me to switch brands because the technique was amazing , that may not be an option for you when your employed but I would still highly recommend the training :) Can't go wrong with good training , it will last you a lifetime :)
Hi, Which brand did you switch to? Thank you. G

This was back in 2015 so the wax i switched over to then was Perron Rigot.

I've since changed both my technique and wax again , and Noodle is right, I now use the wax:one wax and their technique :)
