The big three as I see them are Perron Rigot (my personal wax of choice), Berodin (formerly Berins) and Lycon.
These are also the most expensive waxes - as with all things you get what you pay for.
If you are looking for more mid range Hive Options isn't too bad. But you may also want to try Waxxpress or however they spell it. If you are looking for a roller system again PR and Lycon do rollers (I use PR Homme personally) but Clean & Easy is popular, though I prefer the Hive Multi Mini heater.
You also need to look at what size heater you want - I always recommend a 1000cc Hive Heater.
Now if you want a cheaper wax you could look at Pro Wax from Beauty Express or Salon Systems wax, or for a really cheap (and remember you get what you pay for) you can also pick up basic waxes from most wholesalers.
So as you can see there are many many waxes to choose from, to suit all budgets. All depends on what you are looking for.
A lot will depend on what you want - if you are comfortable with pot and spatula then as others have said there are 3 main players... I'm a Berins girl myself
If you prefer rollers or applicators then Hive do a good selection sizewise - personally I got this and found I only use my pots so will probably end up getting rid of it shortly to be honest I know lots of therapists round here who swear by theirs however and I did too after my training... Found I soon converted to Berins warm and hot wax though
I like Perron Rigot waxes. Perron Rigot have discovery days where you can go along and try the waxes out and see for yourself what you like. Not many brands allow you to try without obligating you to buy.
Andy Rouillard trained me and he also gave the information on PR discovery days. Check out Perron Rigot on Facebook. The place is in Crosshabour.
Thanks for giving me your opinions, I'll have a look at those brands. I've not booked my waxing training yet but I know from when I did my eyelash training that the products I bought that the trainers supplied weren't great and I ended up spending as much again to buy better products from advice given on here. I certainly don't want to do that again.
Joe90 thanks you for your offer, which is really kind and I very well might take you up on that once I'm trained
fozzyo plenty of suggestions there, once I'm trained my clients are likely to be young women who won't have a lot of disposable income, so I suppose I'm looking for a reasonably priced, good quality product. Something that's good for a newbie to use and the most popular treatment is going to be eyebrows I think.
It's a bit of a worry buying supplies and equipment for a new treatment because it's easy to make mistakes at the beginning that can be costly
