How To Do Chin Waxing
This video demonstrates the proper way to do a chin wax. A trainer shows the step-by-step process to removing hair from the chin and neck.
Today, I'm going to show you how to do chin waxing. First and foremost, just get some cotton wad pads and place some pre-wax lotion onto the pads. And just cleanse the area to remove any excess oils and makeup.
Just make sure the area is dry so you can use the other side of the cotton pad to remove any excess pre-wax lotion. Get the client to just pop their chin up. You can use a smaller spatula like so, a bit like a coffee stirrer.
You're going to apply the wax in small sections, just across the chin area going towards the underside of the neck. This you would use smaller strips like so. It's slightly larger than the strips that you would use for lip wax or eye brow waxing, so just a tad bit bigger.
To do the first section, we'll put a bit of wax. Dip your spatula into the wax and pick up a bit of wax. Again, not too much, place this on one side of the chin.
Place it in the direction of the hair growth and then just place the strip onto the area. Just smooth out the strip. Make sure that you stretch the skin just in front of the area, the flap where I'm actually going to pull it off.
Stretch and then remove. Continue to adopt this procedure, so just do some more sections. Just do the next area.
Smooth it over. Stretch, right, you don't want to stretch in the middle of the neck, of course. That can be very, very uncomfortable for the client.
Just stretch to an angle, just on the side and then just remove the strip, just doing the next section, and then just do the other side of the chin. Then you can just go up and actually do the chin area itself. Again, just spread wax over the area.
Be careful not to apply wax to the areas where you have already waxed, because that can actually cause the skin to rip. Again, same procedure, smooth over and we'll just remove the strip. Some clients do have course hairs on the chin area.
Therefore, that may mean you may need to tweeze some excess hairs off. In summary, what we've done, we've just cleansed the area with some pre-wax lotion. We actually started to do the wax with a smaller spatula and small strips in sections, starting from just by the jaw line, just underneath the chin and the underside of the neck, and then going onto the top side, just the upper bit of the chin.
And then finally, we'll place a little bit of after wax lotion, just to smooth and soothe the area and remember you can tweeze any excess hairs off for someone who has got quite course hairs. And that is how you do a chin wax.
