Lycon is the professional’s choice in quality wax and an essential ingredient in leading salons around the world.
Choosing the right Lycon wax
There are three different LYCON waxing methods – using hard wax, LYCOJET waxing and strip waxing.
- For large areas and if hair is long enough, we recommend any LYCON strip wax which can remove hair as short as 2mm.
- If the hair is short and brittle, we recommend any LYCON hard wax or LYCOJET hard wax which can remove hair as short as 1mm.
Bikini Lines & Underarms
For sensitive areas, we recommend any of LYCON’s hard waxes, particularly the ‘XXX’ waxes, LYCOtec, and LYCOflex waxes for their gentleness and soothing properties.
For men and those with stubborn hair growth, we recommend Manifico which is exceptionally strong yet without any skin drag. LYCOJET waxes in Desert Rose and Lavender, can be used on these areas also, should any stubborn hair remain after the initial waxing. LYCOJET eliminates the need to tweeze!
Eyebrows, lips & face
Any LYCON hard wax can be used on the facial area. LYCON’s creamy formulations with Titanium Dioxide offer extra soothing benefits on delicate areas such as the face, but have that famous grip for short hair removal.
Areas such as the eyebrows and lips have a variety of different hair growth types. LYCOJET waxes are ideal to use on the short, fluffy facial hair, as well as the more difficult to remove hair in these areas.
Backs, chests & necks
LYCON hard wax is great for smaller areas like the neck and shoulders. If client has super-sensitive skin, choose a strip wax instead, that contains skin protectors like Titanium Dioxide or Micro Mica. A favorite is Active Gold.
NOTE: When the back or the chest is being waxed, clients often perspire as the wax is removed. This prevents strip wax from gripping the hair well. So we recommend that you switch to a hard wax. You may also re-apply Lycotane skin cleanser in-between the applications to remove the perspiration.
Arms & legs
Strip wax can also be used on small or large areas. But, for clients that have recently shaved, use LYCOJET hard waxes to remove the short, coarse re-growth from difficult areas such as the knees.
Generally speaking, all Lycon waxes can be used on the face and body. The above suggestions are only a guideline and everyone chooses differently depending on the training they have had, the client’s hair growth type and personal preferences. Remember, for best results it is important to use the specified LYCON Pre and Post waxing products for all wax treatments.
