What does a Waxing Therapist do?

Waxing Therapists remove body hair using hot wax and strip wax — as well as provide aftercare therapies to soothe the skin and prevent abrasions. As a waxing therapist you could be applying hot wax to legs, toes, eyebrows and intimate zones — as well heating wax, cleaning and sanitising equipment between treatments.

Waxing Therapists often work in dedicated waxing salons, but you could also be employed at day spas, wellness centres, hair and beauty salons, or even cruise ships. Many waxing therapists open their own mobile waxing service.
