Waxing is the removal of hair from the root from the face and body

We are one of the very few salons that use a none-strip wax which minimises discomfort dramatically. For intimate areas we use a high quality hot wax by Peron Regot.

Peron Rigot

Warm wax which is also referred to as cool wax has grown in popularity over the years. Warm wax is a sticky substance made from a mixture of resins and oils. The technique involves applying the wax with a spatula in sections on a specific area, a strip is pressed over and pulled away swiftly therefore removing the hair at the root. This technique is used for legs and other larger areas.

Hot wax contains beeswax. The technique is different to that of warm wax, it is applied in sections but in a thicker layer and shrink wraps the hair. It is left to set and then removed. As the wax only adheres to the hair and not to skin, discomfort is reduced dramatically compared to ‘strip’ waxing on intimate areas. The technique is generally used by more experienced therapists as it is a highly skilled treatment to perform correctly and efficiently. The hot wax is used at Urban Chic Beauty for face and intimate waxing.

Both methods give the same end result and waxing should be repeated every 4-6 weeks for the treatment to be effective at reducing the density of the hair and slowing down the re-growth.

Threading

Threading is a temporary method of hair removal using cotton thread. The method originates from the Middle East and has been practised for many years and has now become popular in the western world. A piece of cotton is twisted round the fingers and rolled over the hair. The hair is caught in the twist and is pulled out of the follicle.

Threading is a great alternative to waxing and tweezing.
