Grow your waxing business by Lydia Jordane, Lycon Precision Wax - Vogue Beauty

This article first appeared on Spa Standard an excellent site for continuing education.

Want to grow your salon or spa profits?

Waxing is a high demand, repeat service that is very profitable, with low overhead!  In 2015, IBIS World Reports has valued the hair removal industry revenue at $598.1 million! The projected  growth is 3.0% in 2016. (1)

The key to a successful waxing business is using the right products in conjunction with techniques learned through proper training. By following these tips, your business will grow. As more clients get more areas waxed, they will tell their friends!

Education

To have a thorough understanding of the correct products and the best techniques is the foundation of a superior waxing service. For example, eyebrows and Brazilians are two of the most requested treatments.  They require some more advanced technique training, but it is not difficult at all to master, and become a waxing guru in your own right.  Technicians should provide a skin consultation for new clients to determine the best wax and procedures to apply, and also recommend the appropriate after-care products. Hands-on waxing training, with lots of practice, are the keys to providing the best expert waxing treatments and to keep your clients coming back for more!

Choose the right wax

Have both a strip wax and hard wax on hand. Strip wax is excellent for the larger body areas and a hard wax is best for the more delicate and potentially sensitive areas such as the face, underarms and the bikini zone. Using superior quality waxes, together with the right pre and post waxing lotions during the treatment and the right waxing techniques, are fundamental for a superior waxing service. The waxes you use must be low-temperature, pliable and smooth, remove the shortest hairs as well as fine hairs.  It is important the wax contains ingredients that protect, soothe and hydrate the skin while you wax. The wax should smell delicious and do not create skin redness or irritation. Strip waxes should not leave a sticky residue behind on the skin.

Recommend after-care solutions

Clients will appreciate products that make the waxing process easier and more comfortable. In particular, the  home care before a Brazilian treatment is essential. Before performing the waxing service, explain to clients that the skin in the intimate area tends to be dry, preventing the hair from being easily removed from the root. Explain the solutions available  that can aid in correcting the issues. Also explain the benefits of and how after-care products will allow them to stay smooth longer.

Provide eyebrow and lip services

Adding a speedy eyebrow or lip wax to your service menu is an easy way to grow your business! For example, include a waxing area at your makeup bar to allow for a quick eyebrow wax, especially for walk-ins. Eyebrow and lip areas use the least amount of wax per treatment and can be done quickly.  They are also easy as an add-on to other services a client may be having.

Read “How to Achieve a Perfect Brow” for great suggestions!

Don’t forget about men!

Male waxing continues to grow in popularity as men discover the benefits and comfort of being hair-free.  List your male grooming services separately from other treatments so men feel more comfortable in booking an appointment.  Doing so signifies that male services are the norm, not simply squeezed in. Chests and backs are the more popular waxing offerings for men.  Make sure you choose the right wax for strong and stubborn hair growth that is still very gentle on the skin.  Your technicians need to be properly trained and use the right pre and post waxing lotions, as men can be quite sensitive with their coarse and dense hair growth.

Offer membership pricing

While facials and massages are viewed as luxury services, waxing is seen as a necessity you can’t do without. As clients start waxing and experience the long-term benefits, it quickly becomes a part of their beauty routine that easily fits into most budgets. Membership priced packages give you the profits up-front while providing your clients value for their money.  To increase sign-ups, highlight the cost-savings and extra membership perks on your website, in-store and on social media!

What is the right wax for your salon?

Lycon the Right wax for your salon?

We want to help you to decide which is the right wax for you and for your salon. So, here is article 1, describing the benefits of using the Lycon Precision Wax line.

 

Lycon is the first of three wax lines Vogue Beauty accepted for distribution.

 

Why Lycon?

Lydia Jordane, otherwise known as the ‘Waxing Queen’, is the founder and CEO of LYCON COSMETICS. As a beauty therapist herself for more than 35 years, Lydia has firsthand experience with waxing techniques and knows what kind of results should be achieved with every application.

 

How Lycon began

It all started in 1978, when she developed the LYCON range of specialty products that achieve a superior result, while still being economical. Lycon first introduced the original and gentle Apricot Wax.

 

In the years that followed, various other aromatherapy waxes were introduced, including the famous Rosette Hot wax. Additionally, LYCOflex, LYCOtec and the unique Lycon Lycojet waxes were developed.

 

The secret to a great waxing application

Many salons use strip wax for everything. According to Lydia, one type of wax isn’t necessarily the right wax for all clients, or suitable for every part of the body and face with different types of skin.  For professional results every time, LYCON recommends strip wax for large areas, such as legs, arms, chests and backs.

 

Hot wax is the right wax for the more sensitive and delicate areas, such as the bikini area, Brazilian waxing, the face and underarms. (Read more on application tips and tricks here.)

 

LYCON customizes the wax choice by the treatment area and the skin type, so your clients will have the absolute best results and a very comfortable waxing experience.

 

LYCON wax removes hair efficiently – clients are surprised that less hair grows back, and growth is slower.

 

How the right wax will help grow your salon business

You might think that slower grow back would result in fewer clients, But consider this: you will be able to fit more clients into your schedule. Increasing clients means…making more money.

 

The end result of using Lycon waxes is not just a smooth finish, but growing a business for therapists!

 

No wonder LYCON wax is used and loved in over 45 countries with a celebrity following. Salons who try LYCON will never want to change  to another wax… and clients keep on coming back!

 

Your waxing business will boom with LYCON! See the entire product range here on Vogue Beauty!

 

Vogue Beauty has added several Lycon products to our online catalog. They include: Azulene strip wax, which has the added benefit of chamomile and Lycotec Superberry strip wax with a luscious berry scent!

 

For a great clean-up and send off, we now carry Lycon Wax Solvent and Lycon Soothing Creme for a luxurious finish!

 

And did you know Vogue Beauty also carries many of the waxing accessories you need?

 

Time for a Tip – Waxing techniques for professional results

Mancine Organic Waxing tips on Vogue Beauty Blog

Every few months, we will post a tip to help you save time, achieve better waxing results or learn something new. So, without further delay, here is today’s tip:

There are many types of hard waxes, but most can be grouped into two categories – natural or synthetic waxes.   Mancine is one of our favorite wax lines.  These synthetic,  high quality, hard waxes have virtually no uncomfortable pull on the skin.

You will notice there are a few differences – these modern waxes have a slightly different application process than other classic waxes.

 The waxing process – how to produce the best results:

  1. The wax needs to be hotter than most waxes. The setting on your warmer should be at 3.5. This setting won’t make the application too warm for the client’s skin to tolerate, but will allow the wax to be applied thinly. A thin application is essential for the best results.

  2. Stir the wax thoroughly before applying. If there is titanium dioxide in the hard wax you have chosen, it will settle to the bottom. Titanium is added to soothe the skin and acts as an anti-inflammatory. If not stirred well, the bottom of your pot will have a higher concentration and could lessen the grab of the hair when applied.

  3. Apply THINLY. Yep, we said it again. Apply thinner than you are used to with other hard waxes. The goal is to apply just enough to grab the hair, not the skin.

  • (A tip for pulling wax – using the end of your stick, push back the edge of wax so that it curls a bit, and then continue to pull back with your fingertips.)

Application technique

Before applying the wax, prepare your client’s skin with Pre-wax lotion and oil. Pre-wax lotion cleanses the skin, and a very small amount of pre-wax oil protects the skin before waxing.

Now you are ready to apply the wax.  Apply wax against the hair growth and then forward – in a ‘figure 8′ pattern. First, against the hair growth, and then with the hair growth – yes, you guessed it – in a very thin application.

After waxing, cleanse the skin of any wax residue and leave it feeling silky smooth with Ultimate Finish. In fact, you can add a bit of the Ultimate Finish to all other Mancine lotions (tea tree lotions, natural lotions or scented lotions from Mancine) for even better results.

(Pre and post products can also be used with strip waxes, like our Mancine Brazilian Rose or our Mancine Aloe Green Organic strip wax.)

With Mancine waxes,  applied according to these directions, you can expect to get 30% more applications per unit than with other waxes.

Indoor air – how clean is yours?

With winter months approaching, we will be spending more time indoors. Have you ever wondered how to reduce or even rid your home of indoor air pollution? What affects indoor air quality?

Granted, many of us have changed the cleaning chemicals we use, and many products for home improvements are ‘green’, reducing the VOC’s. But there are still many things that contribute to indoor air pollution, such as heaters, stoves and fireplaces, granite and marble, pressed wood products in cabinetry, flooring and furniture and carpeting. What else can be done to help dissipate these pollutants?

Good news: Houseplants reduce and even eliminate many of the pollutants found inside our homes. According to an article in Mother Earth News, here are the 15 best at reducing indoor air pollution:

  • Aloe
  • Spider Plant
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Snake Plant also known as ‘Mother-in-law’s tounge’ (Haha!)
  • Golden Pothos (Devil’s Ivy)
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Dracaena (Warneck and Red-edged or Marginata)
  • Ficus Benjemina or Weeping Fig
  • Azelea
  • English Ivy (great if you live on a farm-filters airborne fecal matter particles!)
  • Chinese Evergreen
  • Bamboo Palm
  • Heart leafed Philodendron
  • Peace Lily (Tops on the list!)

Remember, some plants are poisonous, so if you have a cat, dog or child in the house, research your selection first to avoid an unpleasant call to poison control hotline! Here is a list of common houseplants that are considered SAFE by MNN!

Not everyone has a naturally ‘green thumb’, or intuitively knows how to care for their houseplants. So, as a follow-up to last weeks’ blog on indoor air quality and houseplants, we thought you might like to know some plant care tricks and tips.

New living quarters

When you first purchase your newest housemate, you should re-pot it into a bigger pot. The size of the pot should be one-third larger in every direction.

Room to breathe

Plants don’t like wet feet-use some rocks for drainage in the bottom of the new pot, then cover with a layer of newspaper, a coffee filter or some natural burlap to keep the dirt from filtering though the rocks and out of the drainage holes.

Cozy bedding, good light

Use good quality, indoor potting soil. Find a spot with adequate light for the type of houseplant. Or, create the light needed with a portable grow light.

A drink, not a bath

Water with room temperature water after repotting. Make the soil damp to the touch, and water should begin to drain out of the bottom. If the water puddles on top, you have overwatered; pour off the excess-this is to be a drink for your thirsty guest, not a bath!

Dinnertime!

Apply the same rules you have for any company-”a happy guest is a well-fed guest.” Use a liquid or water souluable fertilizer to boost the nutrients in the container.

For this purpose, there is a new product available on our website that is designed for boosting your plant health- AO PlantGrow. It is an organic plant spray designed to help revive, improve and increase the life-cycle of your plants.

AO PlantGrow combines minerals and natural vegetable sugars to create a liquid soil amendment that can be used in combination with other products and around your kids and pets. While we don’t know why you would, AO PlantGrow is safe enough to drink, and produces amazing results (in plants, not humans.)

Use according to the directions-Spray once weekly on plants, three times weekly on ailing plants for revival.

  • Lac It! Gel Polish FAQs

    *Vogue Beauty is NOT an official distributor of en Vogue products.

    SHOP FOR LAC IT! PRODUCTS>>>>

    LAC IT! COLOR CHART>>>>

    Q. My Lac It! nails have been in the light for more than 5 minutes, but still feel wet or sticky. Why?

    A.- It only takes 2 minutes for Lac It! to fully cure if using a 9watt UV light. You must wipe each nail with Lac It! Finishing Wipe and apply pressure when wiping to completely remove the dispersion film.

    Q. What should I do if I get Lac It! Gel Polish on my skin?

    A.- Use an orangewood stick to remove any base coat, gel polish color or top gloss on the skin around the nail.

    Q. Why, after I wipe the finished nail, it is not shiny?

    Try these suggestions:

    1. Be careful not to apply too much pressure when brushing on the Lac It! Top Gloss.
    2. It may be time to replace your UV bulb.
    3. Make sure you place your fingers completely inside the UV light for a full 2 minutes

    Q. Can I fix the nail if this does happen?

    A. -Yes. Simply buff the Top Gloss off and clean the nails with Lac It! Nail Prep. Apply another coat of Top Gloss, this time use less pressure and let the brush glide across the nail. Then cure for another 2 minutes.

    Q. What can I do to prevent that from happening so it comes out shiny the first time?

    A. – Apply one thin layer of Top Gloss to have complete coverage from right to left side including over the end of the nail. Then go back over the surface again with a small bead of Top Gloss on the tip of the brush, enough to allow your brush to glide across the nail. Then cure for 2 minutes.

    Q. My Lac It! Gel Polish color has ripples in it, what’s wrong?

    A. – You may have applied it too thickly and not have allowed enough curing time under the UV light. For best result, apply in two thin layers.

    Q. Why does my color seem light and streaking?

    A. – It is best to shake Lac It! Gel Polish bottles to remix the colors after they have been sitting for long periods. The first coat should be applied thin and slightly sheer. After curing, the second coat should be applied with full coverage.

    Q. Can I use Lac It! Gel Polish on acrylic or gel nails?

    A. – Yes, you can use Lac It! over acrylic or gel nails. It is best if you slightly buff the shine off the artificial nail enhancement before the gel polish application.

    Q. Will I still need to use Base Coat if applying over acrylic or gel nails?

    A. – Yes, you will need to use Lac It! Base Coat over the acrylic or gel nails.

    Q. What can I do to prevent polish from chipping at the ends of my nail?

    A. – Do not cover the ends of your nail with excess amount of color. A very small amount should be used. This allows the product to stay as thin as possible. The ends of the nail must be covered entirely with Lac It! Top Gloss.

    Q. Can I apply more than one layer of Lac It! Gel Polish color?

    A. – For best result, it is recommended to apply 2 thin layers of color. The first coat should be applied thin and slightly sheer. After curing, the second coat should be applied with full coverage.

    Q. Why do I have problem with Lac It! Gel Polish peeling?

    1. Incorrect preparation. Oils may have been left on the surface of the nail. Make sure to buff oils off the nail using your nail prep stick and then wipe with Lac It! Nail Prep before starting your gel polish application.
    2. Applied the Base coat too thick. The Lac It! Base Coat must be applied very thin and even and cured for 2 minutes in a UV light.
    3. The ends of the nail should be covered entirely. Make sure to smooth out by brushing from cuticle area straight down to the end. Remove any excess gel polish build up during this step before placing into UV light.

    Q. Can the base coat and Gel Polish Colors be cured longer than 2 minutes under the UV light?

    A. – Yes, minimum curing time is 2 minutes for base coat and 2 minutes for gel polish.

    Lycon Waxing delivers superior performance by using only the finest resins, natural ingredients and aromatherapy oils. While gentle to the client’s skin it is tough on the job, removing stubborn hair as short as 1mm!

    The entire LYCON Wax range has grown since it was first launched in 1978 – over 30 years ago. Vogue Beauty offers a wide selection of Lycon waxing products- choose from hard or strip wax and the unique Lycojet, LYCOtec and LYCOflex waxes.

    You will also find pre and post waxing lotions as well as products and accessories that you can keep on hand for your customers to purchase.

    Overview of Lycon waxes – strip wax

    LYCON is famous for their super gentle strip waxes, made from a special blend of the very best natural and organic raw materials. With use, you will experience a few pleasant surprises —

    • Speedy application,

    • No sticky residue, no skin drag and

    • Extra strong grip to remove hair as short as 2mm!

    • Special aromatherapy oils for soothing and conditioning the skin, leaves your client comfortable and satisfied with the results every time!

    The correct way to apply LYCON strip wax is very thinly, which means that less wax is used per treatment. There’s a staggering 5,000 lip or eyebrow waxes, or an amazing 36 half leg waxes in each 1L jar!

    Overview of Lycon waxes – hard wax

    LYCON’s ground-breaking, stripless hard wax, encompasses the finest selection of natural and soothing ingredients. This wax is perfect for short, stubborn hair on any part of the face and body. Designed to be used at an extra low temperature, Lycon hard wax will —

    • Nurture the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and completely hair-free

    • Make re-application easy, since it can be re-applied 5 - 6 times on just waxed skin, without discomfort or irritation.

    • shrink-wrap and remove hair as short as 1mm!

    • LYCON hard wax is a perfect choice for Brazilian wax treatments!

    LYCON’s hard wax can be re-heated many times over, without affecting their superior grip, pliability or comfortable feel.

    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.

    Which waxing method should I use?

    Mancine takes the guesswork out for you! There are three different Mancine waxing methods: hard (hot) waxing, Ultra Flexx waxing and strip waxing.

    Mancine  hard (hot) waxes

    mancine waxes-champagne wax
    mancine champagne wax

    There are 6 different waxes in this category: Champagne, Honeycomb Wax; Pure Olive Oil; Brazilian Rose Wax; Wild Apricot; and Azurelene.

    Mancine hard waxes are exceptionally gentle and effective. They are renowned for their low melting point, high elasticity and pliability. They save time, are easy to apply and amazingly remove more hair with each application. They are designed to remove hair as short as 1mm, they are very pliable and painless for most.

    These waxes are applied at half the thickness of other hard waxes so you get more applications per container. Even your most discriminating customer will love our range of waxes.

    All Mancine Hard Waxes can be re-applied 2 to 3 times to remove stubborn difficult hair without causing irritation.

    Mancine Ultra Wax

    Mancine waxes-Ultraflexxx-Kiwi-and-Aloe-Hard-Wax
    Mancine Ultraflexxx-Kiwi-and-Aloe-Hard-Wax

    There are 6 varieties of Ultra waxes – Kiwi & Aloe, Brazilian Strawberry, Vanilla,  Pomegranate & Jojoba, Vanilla Shimmer and Apple & Papaya. They are similar to hard waxes except they are designed to be applied even thinner – 1/3 of the thickness – which makes them more economical. They will remove hair as short as 1mm and can be reapplied several times without trauma to the skin. Their unique plastic texture makes them ultra-flexible with a superior grip, less pain and great for all sensitive skin types.

    Mancine Strip Waxes

    This group consists of the following waxes: Wild Apricot & Camomile, Azulene, Pure Olive Oil, Brazilian Rose, Aloe Green and Honeycomb.

    Mancine waxes-Brazilian strip-wax
    Brazilian strip-wax

    The Mancine organic range of soft strip waxes has been developed to deliver outstanding results. These exclusive formulations depend on the use of only the most natural ingredients. They spread further than other waxes making applications very economical. Salon owners and therapists worldwide agree that Mancine strip waxes reduce your treatment time enabling more treatments per day and increased profit for your business!

    SO – Which wax should I choose?

    • legs & arms-We recommend any strip wax if hair is long enough. If hair is short and brittle, we recommend Honeycomb Strip Wax.

    • bikini & Brazilian-We recommend our Brazilian Rose Hard Wax or any of our Ultra Flexxx Waxes. These waxes are most gentle for sensitive areas and leave a cleaner and neater finish.

    • eyebrows, lips & faces-All hot waxes can be used but the Ultra Flexxx waxes are exceptional for these areas.

    • backs, chests & necks-Any Mancine Hard Wax or Ultra Flexxx Waxes.

      Strip waxes are more difficult on these areas because they are more painful and will not remove hair as well. When the back or the chest is being waxed, clients often perspire and this prevents the strip wax from gripping hair well. Mancine hard waxes are much easier, less painful and more efficient in these areas.

    Remember:

    For the best results it is important to use the specified Pre and Post Waxing products.

    Always use Hand and Body Gel Sanitizer before you wax. This disinfectant removes 99.9% of germs in less than 20 seconds. Leaves no sticky residue due to its ultra absorbing formula. Protects both the client and the therapist, and has a lovely citrus scent.mancine-pre-wax-oil-with-aloe-vera at Vogue Beauty

     

    Pre-wax Lotion is recommended for use prior to strip and hard waxing to remove all oils, perspiration and makeup. Prevents wax from becoming tacky, leaving less wax residue. Pleasant smelling with chamomile to calm the skin and prevent harmful bacteria entering the hair follicle. Fast drying and can also be used before electrolysis.

    Use Pre-Waxing Oil before Hard Waxing. Contains aloe-vera which acts as an anti-inflammatory to soothe the skin and it is scented with a lovely Jasmine aroma.
