I often get questions from clients asking me what the difference is between strip and non-strip wax. Let me answer that here –
Strip wax is when a thin layer of wax is applied, and is then removed with a paper strip. This method is best used on less sensitive areas of the body, such as the legs.
Non-strip – or hot wax – is applied to the skin, and as the wax sets it wraps the individual hairs, before being removed without a paper strip. In my experience, this technique is less painful and more effective at pulling hair from the root, which is why it’s used on sensitive and intimate areas.
I use Perron Rigot, which in my opinion, is the finest brand of wax in the world.
