Waxing & hair removal at JDH
Our Spa offers 2 types of hair removal – Traditional Warm Honey Wax and Hot Wax.
At James Dun’s House we offer a range of hair removal treatments, all of which are performed by highly trained therapists, who will ensure your experience is as quick and comfortable as possible
Warm wax is the most popular used methods with its ability to remove hair quickly and efficiently. Warm wax is a much quicker treatment than hot wax. The wax is applied sparingly and removed straight after; it is not left on the skin to dry like hot wax. It is very easy to control the application of the warm wax making it ideal for facial hair removal e.g. lips, chin, & eyebrows.
Warm on wax is applied to the skin in a very thin layer using a spatula. A fabric strip is then pressed on the waxed area and removed quickly causing minimum discomfort. Sometimes slighter reddening may appear to the skin afterwards but this is completely normal and will fade in a few hours. Hair re-growth can become finer when it has been waxed with warm honey wax.
Our Hot wax hair removal treatments is ideal for those with sensitive skin, it reduces redness and is great for coarse hairs. Hot wax consists of beeswax and a resin, it is melted to a thicker consistency than warm wax.
When the wax is applied to the skin with a spatula, it coats the hair with a thick layer. As the wax cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hair and gripping them tightly. The wax remains on the skin until it becomes opaque in colour-drying to form a slight tacky consistency. It is then pulled off the skin with a fast movement.
We only use hot wax for the following treatments: Lip, Chin, Underarm, Bikini, Brazillian & Hollywood.
