W H AT IS A FEMALE INTIMATE WAX A female intimate wax is a procedure that involves the temporary removal of hair from the pubic region Depending on the client s requirements a female intimate waxing service may include the removal of some or all of the hair on the mons pubis labia majora labia minora perineum and the buttocks adjacent to the anus There are a variety of different service types available and the name they are referred to may differ in different salons Anatomy Physiology Before you can perform an intimate waxing service you need to have a basic understanding of the female external genitalia so that you can identify the areas that you are waxing Always use the proper terminology if for any reason you are describing or naming parts of the genitalia to your client Never use slang COMMON NAMES FOR FEMALE INTIMATE WAXES BIKINI This is where the hair located outside the underwear line is removed The area usually involves the removal of the hair on the top of the thighs may also include the navel area or snail trail hair EXTENDED BIKINI G STRING This includes the removal of more hair than a bikini line wax but not quite as much as a g string wax Will usually include the removal of hair from the sides of the bikini area and a thin line of hair from the labia majora depending on the client s requirements This involves the removal of hair outside the area that a g string would cover The g string wax usually removes the hair about an inch inward from the underwear line and an inch down from the top of the underwear line May include a small amount of hair to be removed from the labia majora but does not usually involve the perineum or buttocks area HOLLYWOOD WAX Can also be referred to as a xxx or full brazilian wax All hair is removed from the mons pubis labia perineum and buttocks adjacent to the anus BRAZILIAN WAX Can also be referred to as a xx or sometime a Hollywood or partial brazilian wax All of the hair is removed from the labia perineum and buttocks leaving a small landing strip triangle or square at the top of the mons pubis SHAPING Hair is shaped over the mons pubis using a template for example a heart or a lightning bolt 10 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1

SKIN ANATOMY HAIR GROWS ABOVE AND WITHIN THE SKIN SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE SKIN BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER The skin consists of two layers the epidermis and the dermis The skin also has an underlying structure called the subcutaneous tissue or hypodermis THE EPIDERMIS The epidermis forms a protective barrier over the body s surface Its main function is to protect the body by keeping moisture inside the body and harmful micro organisms out of the body The epidermis is mostly made up of a protein called keratin that helps to protect skin cells from damage or stress If the epidermis becomes non intact such as through an abrasion or a cut this becomes a route for infection to be transmitted Epidermis Dermis Subcutaneous tissue THE DERMIS The dermis is the layer of skin beneath the epidermis and provides cushioning to the epidermis The dermis contains living tissue collagen elastin blood vessels sebaceous glands and sweat glands Hair follicles sit in the dermis of the skin and grow up through the epidermis where a part of the hair sits above the surface of the skin Under the dermis sits the subcutaneous tissue which is the fatty layer that connects the skin to bones and muscles Skin biology of the labia minora SKIN Unlike the surrounding mons pubis and labia majora the labia minora do not contain hair follicles and are covered with hairless skin They also contain very little subcutaneous tissue The labia minora has less keratin than normal skin which makes it less waterproof and durable but also makes it smoother and softer than normal skin Care needs to be taken when performing a waxing service over this skin as it is not as durable as normal skin and more prone to breakage As we know once skin becomes non intact even if the tears are microscopic in size this creates a pathway for micro organisms to enter the body and cause infection This area also contains lots of blood vessels and nerve endings so is more sensitive than other skin IN THE FEMALE intimate area Clitoral hood The clitoral hood is a fold of skin that protects the glans of the clitoris The skin of the clitoral hood is the same as foreskin in male genitals It is extremely sensitive and does not contain hair follicles Extreme care should be taken when waxing near this area Trauma to this skin can cause extreme pain for your client cause damage to the area and cause infection Anus and perineum Skin biology of the labia majora The labia majora surround and protect the clitoris and openings of the vagina and urethra They often have a plump appearance and consist of normal skin that contains an epidermis dermis and subcutaneous tissue The labia majora contains hair follicles sebaceous glands and sweat glands There are more nerve endings in the skin of the labia majora than other parts of the body so they can tend to be a sensitive area to wax The skin on the buttocks and the perineum contains skin appendages hair follicles sweat glands sebaceous glands However the skin around the anus does not contain skin appendages and is usually pigmented Care needs to be taken waxing around this area as it can be prone to bacterial infection from fecal waste if the skin becomes non intact This skin around the anus also contains less nerve endings so believe it or not it is usually not as painful to wax as other areas 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 11

HAIR ANATOMY The hai r follicle Layers of the hai r shaft The hair follicle sits in the dermis of the skin and is the structure that contains all of the components needed for the hair to grow When you are performing female intimate waxing services you will be removing the hair shaft from the follicle The hair shaft consists of three layers THE PAPILLA Located at the base of the follicle the papilla stimulates hair growth by delivering a constant supply of blood and nourishment to the hair THE SEBACEOUS GLAND The sebaceous gland is attached to the hair follicle and produces a substance called sebum that moisturises the hair and stops it going brittle and breaking THE ARRECTOR PILI MUSCLE The arrector pili muscle is attached to the hair follicle and contracts to make the hair stand on end to provide warmth to the body Goosebumps are a sign the arrector pili muscle has been contracted Hair shaft THE CUTICLE The cuticle consists of keratin which affects the thickness and elasticity of the hair It is the protective outer layer of the hair and has a rough scale like surface THE CORTEX The cortex is the middle and thickest layer of the hair The cortex gives the hair strength and contains melanin which gives the hair colour THE MEDULLA The medulla is the innermost layer of the hair and is comprised of loosely connected keratin cells The size and thickness of the hair is controlled by the medulla Very fine hair does not have a medulla Medulla Arrector pili muscle Cortex Epidermis Sebaceous gland Hair follicle Sweat gland Cuticle Dermis Hair bulb Dermal papilla Subcutaneous tissue Blood vessels The hai r bulb The hair bulb or root is located at the base of the hair shaft Often when performing an intimate waxing service you will see the bulb of the hair after it has been removed The bulb appears as a round dark section at the base of the hair shaft The hair bulb contains all of the parts of the hair needed for growth The matrix of the hair is where cells divide to create hair growth The cells start off as plump and soft and the process that makes them go hard to form the hair shaft is called keratinisation Melanocyte cells are also produced in the hair bulb These cells produce the melanin that can be found in the cortex of the hair and gives the hair colour When you are performing female intimate waxing services you will be removing the hair shaft from the follicle 12 Hair shaft Arrector pili muscle Sebaceous gland Hair bulb Hair shaft Cuticle Cortex Medulla Matrix Connective tissue sheath Follicle wall 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 External root sheath Internal root sheath Dermal papilla Melanocytes Capillary

Types of hair THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF HAIR ON THE BODY VELLUS HAIR Vellus hair is fine downy soft and often un pigmented Vellus hair develops on most of a person s body during childhood These hairs do not have a medulla or a well formed bulb and are not connected to a sebaceous gland The amount of vellus hair will significantly differ from person to person TERMINAL HAIR Terminal hair is influenced by hormones and some types of terminal hair develop during puberty It is thick long pigmented hair found on the scalp face armpits legs and pubic area During puberty increased hormone levels cause vellus hair to turn into terminal hair on certain parts of the body Females usually keep more of their vellus hair and males develop more terminal hair in more parts of the body such as the face THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF TERMINAL HAIR Asexual hair This is hair that exits before puberty such as the eyebrows lashes and hair on the head Sexual hair This is hair that is caused by hormonal changes during puberty such as the underarm legs arms hair on the face chest and genital area Most of the hair that will be removed during an intimate waxing service is this type of hair ACTIVITY 1 3 1 a What type of hair is in the picture b What layer of hair does the type of hair in the picture not have Hair growth phases NOW THAT YOU HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAIR ON THE BODY AND THE BASIC STRUCTURE OF A HAIR AND THE HAIR FOLLICLE LET S TAKE A LOOK AT HOW HAIR GROWS THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHEN PERFORMING WAXING SERVICES AS THE LENGTH OF TIME THE HAIR TAKES TO GROW BACK AFTER A WAXING SERVICE WILL DEPEND ON THE PHASE OF THE GROWTH CYCLE IT IS IN Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three distinct phases anagen catagen and telogen Each of the different growth phases have specific characteristics that will determine the length that the hair can grow For example hair on the scalp will spend longer in the anagen phase than hair on the bikini line THE ANAGEN PHASE This is the growth stage of the hair cycle and can last an average of two to six years The longer the hair stays in the anagen phase the longer it will grow During the anagen phase the cells divide rapidly in the matrix of the hair so that the hair grows in length The cells start as soft plump cells and then go through a process called keratinisation to make them hard As the cells keratinise they move up the follicle and grow above the skin Hair typically grows at a rate of 0 3mm a day during the anagen phase and pubic hair usually stays in the anagen phase for 3 4 months Around 30 of pubic hair is in the anagen phase at any given time Anagen Growth Phase Optimum waxing results will occur if the hair is removed during the anagen phase this is because the hair will be removed from the papilla and will take longer to grow back than if it is removed during the other two phases THE CATAGEN PHASE The catagen phase only lasts around 2 3 weeks and only around 2 3 of pubic hair is in this phase at any one time During this phase the hair stops growing separates from the papilla and starts to die It is carried up the follicle to the base of the sebaceous gland where it stays until it falls out or is pushed out by a new hair that is growing If hair is removed during the catagen phase regrowth will usually occur within 2 3 weeks depending on the client Catagen Transitional Phase THE TELOGEN PHASE 2 a What type of hair is in the picture The telogen phase is the resting phase and no new growth occurs during this period During the telogen phase a hair may still be sitting loosely in the hair follicle and will be pushed out when the anagen phase begins again About 70 of pubic hair is in the telogen phase at a time and remains in this phase for around three months Telogen Resting Phase SO WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN FOR AN INTIMATE WAXING SERVICE b What layer of the hair is causing the hair to be a dark colour 14 All hair on the body is in different growth stages at any one time and because only around 30 of pubic hair is in the anagen phase at the time of removal only 30 of the hair will be removed from the papilla during an intimate waxing service Most of the hair will be in the telogen phase which means regrowth will usually occur within 2 3 weeks and the client will be ready for another wax between 4 8 weeks Of course this will vary from person to person 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1

Factors affecting hair growth Hair growth patterns The places that hair grows on the body is different for men and women due to the hormonal differences in each gender In the diagram the darker areas are the areas where it is usual to have the most hair growth for each gender The lighter areas are areas where it is normal to have a lighter amount of hair growth However everyone is different and some people will have more hair than others and in different parts of the body THE AMOUNT OF HAIR THAT A PERSON GROWS AND THE SPEED THAT IT GROWS CAN BE DETERMINED BY LOTS OF DIFFERENT FACTORS SOME COMMON FACTORS THAT AFFECT HAIR GROWTH ARE HORMONES Common places to grow hair in the pubic area for females includes the tops of the thighs navel area mons pubis labia majora perineum and buttocks adjacent to the anus It is also quite common for hair to extend onto the top of the buttocks Just as people can differ in scalp hair colour they can also differ in pubic hair colour thickness growth rate and length The function of hair in the pubic area is to protect the genitals Therefore the majority of hair in most females will grow downwards towards the vagina The hair is usually at its thickest on the mons pubis above the anterior labial commissure This is also one of the most sensitive places to wax as it contains a lot of nerve endings The darker shaded areas indicate where it is more common for hair to be more dense Lighter areas show where it is more common for hair to be less dense Common Hair Disorders WHEN PERFORMING FEMALE INTIMATE WAXING SERVICES THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU MAY COME ACROSS CLIENTS WHO SUFFER FROM HAIR DISORDERS COMMON HAIR DISORDERS THAT YOU MAY SEE ARE The hormones with the most direct effect on hair growth are androgens Androgens are male hormones that include testosterone Both men and women produce androgens however males produce more testosterone than women This is why men generally grow more hair than women Overproduction of androgen hormones in women can lead to hirsutism or excess body and facial hair Some hormonal changes can be caused by the following Diseases such as polycystic ovarian syndrome can cause an excess of androgen production which can lead to hirsutism After pregnancy many women experience a loss of hair This is caused by many hair follicles simultaneously entering the telogen phase This can last from one to six months but resolves completely in most cases when the hormone production in the body normalises Age effects androgen hormone production After menopause in women production of androgen hormones decreases which leads to a decrease in hair growth HEREDITARY The amount of hair that a person grows on their body can depend on hereditary factors and a person s nationality Hereditary influences can cause people from different genetic backgrounds to grow different amounts of hair DRUGS AND CHEMICALS CANCER TREATMENTS Chemotherapy and radiation treatment will cause hair loss because the treatments stop hair cells from dividing normally preventing growth of new hair HIRSUTISM Hirsutism is excessive hair growth in females This is where the hair growth pattern on the body will follow the hair growth pattern for a male Hair may grow on the face around the nipples on the abdomen and excessive hair may grow on the legs chest back and buttocks Hirsutism may be caused by genetic or hormonal factors and can cause a great deal of distress for the sufferer in some cases HYPERTRICHOSIS Hypertrichosis is excessive hair growth over and above the normal growth rate for the age gender and nationality of an individual Unlike hirsutism the hair does not grow in a male pattern but hair growth is excessive in certain body parts ALOPECIA AREATA This type of hair loss is believed to be caused by the immune system reacting to hair follicles as if they were antibodies and shutting them down Due to the hair follicle not being active hair loss occurs in coin sized areas and all of the hair in the area is lost leaving a totally smooth round patch In a more severe rarer condition called Alopecia Totalis all hair on the entire body is lost including the eyelashes PRESCRIPTION DRUGS Some prescription drugs may cause temporary hair shedding in a small percentage of people Examples of drugs that may have this effect include drugs used for gout arthritis depression heart problems high blood pressure or blood thinning drugs High doses of Vitamin A may also cause hair shedding TESTOSTERONE MEDICATIONS If a client is on testosterone medication this can cause excessive hair growth in body areas Usually topical creams will cause hair growth in the area they are applied Overproduction of androgen hormones in women can lead to hirsutism or excess body and facial hair 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 15

Infection control Female intimate waxing involves the removal of hair from the female genital area which includes the mons pubis labia minora labia majora perineum and the buttocks adjacent to the anus Due to the biology of the skin in this area and a high chance of contact with body fluids when carrying out the service proper infection control procedures must be carried out Infection is caused by the following micro organisms ACTIVITY 2 1 1 If Rheka contracted an infection from contaminated wax would this be an example of direct contact or indirect contact infection transmission Bacteria The vast majority of bacteria are harmless and some strains are even beneficial to our bodies For example there are strains of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract that aid digestion and are crucial for the functioning of the body However some bacteria is harmful and can cause infection if it enters the body Viruses Viruses can only reproduce inside a host such as a human or an animal and cannot grow or multiply on their own Once they are inside a host they will reproduce to infect more cells and cause infection A virus is able to take over the functioning of the body and can prevent the body from working normally Some viruses commonly infect the body such as cold and flu and the body will create anti bodies to kill the virus Other viruses however such as blood borne viruses like HIV and some forms of Hepatitis can permanently infect the body as the body cannot create anti bodies for these viruses 2 If Suzie just blew her nose while she had a cold sore on her lip and proceeded to perform an intimate waxing service without washing her hands or wearing gloves and Rheka contracted an infection is this an example of indirect or direct contact infection transmission 3 Describe possible ways micro organisms may enter the body during an intimate waxing service Fungi Some fungi like bacteria can be beneficial to the body However like bacteria some fungi are harmful to the body and cause infection if they invade the body Fungi invade and grow in dead cells in skin hair and nails Fungal infections most often occur between the toes under nails in the mouth or genital region Parasites A parasite is an organism that can live and feed off the body Parasites are things like worms mites lice and fleas All of these micro organisms are harmless to us unless they enter the body or in the case of parasites inhabit the body When a micro organism is capable of causing harm it is called an infectious agent Micro organisms can enter the body through the mouth respiratory tract eyes genitals and broken skin The transmission of infection 4 Go to the Health and Hygiene and or Skin Penetration Guidelines for your state or territory to answer the following questions websites are listed at the front of this unit a Write down how wax waste contaminated with blood or body fluid should be disposed of b What should happen to re usable equipment that has been contaminated with blood or body fluid So how can micro organisms enter the body and cause infection during a female intimate waxing service Micro organisms can enter the body in two ways Direct contact Direct contact infection happens when there is direct physical contact between an infected person and a non infected person through infected blood or body substances For example a client who is infected may pass the infection onto the therapist performing the treatment through direct contact with blood or a therapist who is infected may pass the infection onto a client who is having the treatment Indirect contact Micro organisms can cause infection indirectly by being transferred from an infected person to the environment for example work areas linen products tools and equipment and then to another person who comes into contact with the contaminated environmental source For example a client may become infected through contaminated wax or contaminated tools and equipment Don t forget that you and other people in your workplace are also at risk of infection through indirect contact with a contaminated environmental source c Describe the disinfection procedures your workplace uses for re usable equipment that has not been contaminated with blood or body fluid 5 What are your workplace requirements for personal hygiene and presentation when performing intimate waxing services 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 17

INFECTION CONTROL procedures There are concerns in the beauty industry that there is a risk of cross infection occurring if waxing procedures are not performed in a safe and hygienic manner Even though waxing is not intended to involve skin penetration there is a high risk that micro trauma will be caused to the skin and bleeding will occur during the procedure This means that proper infection control precautions need to be taken to ensure that waxing products do not become contaminated with body fluid or blood that contaminated waste is disposed of appropriately and that proper precautions are taken by the therapist to minimise the risk of cross infection occurring Any procedure that results in contact with blood or body fluids has the potential to spread blood borne diseases such as HIV Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C These diseases are spread by blood to blood contact e g by instruments that are contaminated with blood from an infected person and used on another person without being properly sterilised You should always assume that all blood and body fluids are potentially infectious and always use precautions to avoid contact with these substances Procedures that do not result in contact with blood or body fluid can still result in the spread of superficial infection if proper infection control procedures are not used For example staphylococcal bacteria cold sores parasites fungal and viral infection are easily transferred between people HOW TO MINIMISE INFECTION RISK DURING INTIMATE WAXING SERVICES There are lots of ways to ensure that you minimise the risk of cross infection occurring during an intimate waxing service by using the following standard precautions Standard precautions are work practices required to achieve a basic level of infection control and are recommended when providing all beauty services HAND HYGIENE Hand washing is extremely important in preventing the spread of infection as the hands can carry a lot of micro organisms Hands should be washed in the following situations using correct handwashing techniques outlined at the beginning of this unit Before putting on and after removing gloves After any activities that may cause contamination of the hands such as eating using the toilet blowing your nose etc Before performing a treatment on a client and after performing a treatment on a client In any other circumstance when hands may be soiled Hand sanitisers can also be used but should not be used in place of washing hands 18 PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT PPE During a waxing service always wear PPE such as disposable gloves to help to prevent the transmission of infection Vinyl gloves are preferable to latex gloves You may also wish to wear an apron or other protective garment to keep your clothes protected from product and wax NON INTACT SKIN Non intact skin such as cuts abrasions or lesions are a gateway for infection to enter the body and should always be covered with a waterproof dressing Gloves should also be worn to avoid the risk of infection WAX PRODUCT Use single use disposable waxing applicators and do not re dip applicators into wax pots to avoid contamination of product CLIENT S SKIN Always ensure the client s skin is sanitised prior to starting the treatment to help reduce the amount of micro organisms present on the skins surface EQUIPMENT Equipment should be single use if possible and disposed of immediately after use Equipment that is re usable must be adequately cleaned and disinfected prior to using on the next client Any equipment that has come into contact with blood or body fluid must be sterilised LINEN All linen should be cleaned between clients according to the Health and Hygiene Guidelines for your state or territory Disposable linen should be used where possible DISPOSAL OF WASTE Always follow Health and Hygiene and or Skin Penetration Guidelines for your state or territory when disposing of waste In some states and territories contaminated waste must be disposed of into a clinical and related waste bin or infectious waste bin Any sharps used during the treatment such as to remove ingrown hair must be disposed of according to the Skin Penetration Procedures for your state or territory You should always assume that all blood and body fluids are potentially infectious and always use precautions to avoid contact with these substances 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1

T YPES OF WAX There are many different waxes available on the market such as hard hot strip and sugar waxes not to mention the many different forms they are also available in such as beads powders melts or discs and cartridges With so many options it can all get a little confusing as to what waxes are the best to use Basically there are two main types of waxes you will come across in salons These are hard or hot wax and strip wax The choice between a clear or creamy consistency purely comes down to personal preference and how you prefer your wax to work You may also come across sugar based waxes which are less regularly used in salons but are a great alternative to have on hand for clients seeking a natural alternative Hot or hard wax This is a peel off wax that is warmed to above its melting temperature and then applied thickly onto the skin The wax is allowed to cool and when it solidifies the hair can be removed using the wax only no strip needed This type of wax will lift away from the skin when it is dry rather than stick to the skin so it is much more gentle to use on sensitive areas As mentioned earlier this type of wax can come in many different forms such as beads powders and discs The form this wax is presented in is for efficiency in the salon to reduce the time needed to melt the wax For example hard wax melts are perfectly sized so there is no need to break up the wax with a hammer Some products may need to be stood on in order to remove them from the packaging Beads and powders can sometimes be more convenient as they can be placed straight into a wax pot However whichever form hard wax comes in it will melt down and be used in the same way Strip wax This is a sticky wax that is thinly applied to the skin The wax sticks to the hair and the skin and is removed using a strip This type of wax may come in a jar or roll on cartridges Again the form this wax comes in is for ease of melting and preferred application it does not affect the function of the wax Strip wax is useful for larger areas of skin such as arms legs back and chest It is also very efficient at removing very fine hair that may be difficult to remove using hard or hot wax Strip wax is not as gentle on sensitive areas as hard or hot wax but can be used in intimate waxing in combination with hard wax when the therapist is skilled and experienced with their intimate waxing technique If used incorrectly during an intimate waxing service it can be easy to bruise or injure the client when using strip wax My world renowned Brazilian waxing technique requires the use of both hard and strip wax to get the best results Lilliane Caron Founder and Director of Caronlab Australia Sugar wax This is a traditional hair removal method that involves caramelising sugar with water and lemon to make a thick sticky toffee like substance There are two types sugaring paste and sugar strip wax Sugaring paste is used similar to hot or hard wax it can be applied with the hands or a spatula depending on which method you are more comfortable with It is applied to the skin against the direction of hair growth The hairs embed in the wax and can then be removed in the same direction of hair growth The paste is continuously kneaded into the skin until the hair is removed Sugar based strip wax works similar to other strip waxes A spatula is used to apply to the skin in a thin layer in the direction of hair growth It is then removed using a wax strip in the opposite direction 22 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 COMMON INGREDIENTS IN WAX PRODUCTS It is very important when performing intimate waxing services that you not only know how to use correct waxing techniques but that you also know the difference between waxes and the function of wax ingredients This knowledge will help you to choose the correct type of wax for your client The most important thing you need to understand when choosing waxes are the ingredients The core ingredient you will find in wax is resin Resin is found in both hard waxes and strip waxes and can be derived from the sap of trees natural resins or man made synthetic resins Natural resins or resins derived from trees is generally referred to as Colophonium or Rosin Take care when using natural resins on clients with sensitive skin as they are more likely to cause an allergic reaction than synthetic resins Natural resins can also be more unstable than synthetic resins Hydrocarbon resin or Polycyclopentadiene is the base ingredient for synthetic waxes Synthetic rosin is made from ingredients derived from the processing and refining of oils and is 100 odourless and colourless Due to the fact that this man made rosin is mineral based and man made it is consistent in all seasons and temperatures and tends to be more elastic and pliable than waxes containing natural resins PURE WHITE WAXES CAN ONLY BE MADE FROM THE BEST SYNTHETIC RESINS AVAILABLE Lilliane Caron Founder and Director of Caronlab Australia OTHER COMMON INGREDIENTS YOU WILL FIND IN WAXES ARE Titanium Dioxide This ingredient helps to reduce redness and irritation to the skin It allows the wax to adhere to the hair rather than the skin thus is beneficial for sensitive body parts and clients who have sensitive skin Mica This is a form of titanium dioxide so helps to reduce redness and irritation to the skin It also creates a beautiful shimmery effect in the wax Azulene This ingredient helps to soothe and calm the skin and assists in the rapid recovery of the skin This ingredient is ideal for sensitive body areas or for clients who have sensitive skin

consultation THE INTIMATE WAXING An effective intimate waxing service should always start with a thorough consultation If the client is new to your workplace a client record should be created according to your workplace policies and procedures The client should fill out a consultation form that gives details of their medical history so that you can determine if they have any contra indications to the intimate waxing service The client s requirements for the waxing service Waxing is a temporary service which means a lot of your clients will probably be regular clients coming in for routine treatments If your client is a regular client they will already have a client record in your workplace You will need to ensure that you review their client record every time that your client has an appointment in your workplace This is to ensure that the details on the record are up to date to ensure the client has not developed any contra indications since their last waxing service and to find out if your client would like anything about the service to be changed What body areas do they want waxed For example some CLIENT RECORDS CAN BE STORED IN YOUR WORKPLACE ELECTRONICALLY OR FILED MANUALLY AND IF THEY ARE NOT KEPT UP TO DATE WITH A COMPLETE HISTORY OF SERVICES AND DATES YOUR WORKPLACE INSURANCES MAY BECOME INVALIDATED You should use the consultation time with your client to develop a rapport with them so that they will feel comfortable with you during the intimate waxing service The consultation time is also a time to help put nervous clients at ease YOU SHOULD DISCUSS THE FOLLOWING WITH YOUR CLIENT WHEN CONDUCTING THE CONSULTATION Has the client had an intimate waxing service before If the client is new to intimate waxing you will need to explain the treatment procedure and appropriate aftercare to them You should explain the following to a client who has not had an intimate waxing service before The clothes that will have to be removed for the service How the client s modesty will be protected throughout the service Positions that will be used to perform the waxing service Body areas that are usually waxed during an intimate waxing service The potential for ingrown hair and appropriate aftercare advice to help avoid these This will ensure that the client is prepared for the service and will not be surprised or shocked about the procedures used for the intimate waxing service You should discuss with your client what they are hoping to achieve from the waxing service You should ask your client the following questions to help determine their requirements How much hair would they like to have removed I e full wax partial wax or shape clients may decide not to have the buttock area waxed What their pain threshold is Some clients may have a very low pain threshold which means you may need to alter the service slightly Previous methods of hair removal If your client is a new client to your salon you should find out the type of hair removal methods they have been using prior to waxing if any Record previous methods of hair removal on the treatment plan and advise your client about the differences in waxing as a method of hair removal as compared to previous methods they have been using Explain the service procedures It is very important to use the consultation time as a time to explain to your client what to expect throughout the intimate waxing service Always ensure that your client understands that it is a professional service that will involve them undressing and you as the therapist will be required to see and to touch intimate areas You should also explain to the client that they may be required to help assist to hold areas taut You should ensure that your client is comfortable with the service procedure prior to conducting the intimate waxing service This will help to minimise the risk of your client misinterpreting your behaviour during the service or getting a shock or surprise at what the service involves Always explain to your client what will happen during the service and why Educating your client will result in a more relaxed service Adverse effects after care advice You should explain to your client common adverse effects that can happen due to the treatment such as spotting of the skin and ingrown hair This is to ensure the client is well informed prior to having the treatment performed and knows what to expect Adverse effects will be explained a little later You should also explain any necessary after care advice during the consultation For example if a client was planning on swimming in a public pool immediately after the treatment they would need to know that this should be avoided as it could cause infection This may mean the client will have to change their plans or reschedule the waxing service By explaining the aftercare advice to the client prior to performing the treatment you are ensuring that your client is well informed to be able to agree to have the treatment performed Aftercare will be explained a little later Informed consent If your client is considered a minor in your state or territory you will have to obtain informed consent from a parent or guardian The parent or guardian will need to sign a consent form used by your workplace and the signed form will need to be stored in the client s file Before obtaining informed consent you will need to ensure that the client and the parent or guardian understand exactly what the waxing service will involve 24 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate

CONTRA INDICATIONS to a female intimate waxing service After the client has completed the consultation form you should check over the client s medical history to ensure the client does not have any contra indications to the intimate waxing service You will also need to check over the skin in the area to be waxed to ensure there are no contra indications present A contra indication is a condition that will either prevent the waxing service from being performed or cause an adaption to have to be made to the waxing service Reasons that will prevent the service or cause the service to be adapted

your client in a private area where the conversation cannot be overheard by staff or other clients Always be respectful and tactful when explaining the contra indication to your client Never name or diagnose the contra indication You are not qualified to do this and do not want to give your client wrong information that could cause them undue stress Scar tissue less than six months old Skin that has been significantly injured and is in the process of healing will appear red and may be sore depending on the extent of the injury A common scar you will come across when performing female intimate waxing are recent caesarean scars If a client has a scar that is less than six months old the area where the scar is should be avoided It is usually safe to wax around the scar as long as you don t put pressure on the scar or get too close to the scar Abnormal skin Any skin that is bruised sunburnt red inflamed or swollen cut or recently operated on should not be waxed over as this will cause injury to the client Skin thinning medication If the client is taking medication that thins the skin such as Accutane or Vitamin A derivatives the waxing service should not be performed Waxing a client taking skin medication could resolve in the removal of skin from the area Advise the client on alternative hair removal methods Thin or fragile skin This can happen with age The skin will look transparent and veins and blood vessels can easily be seen under the surface of the skin The skin may also appear red in parts If your client has thin or fragile skin in the area to be waxed you will not be able to perform the waxing service as this may cause injury to your client You could suggest alternative hair removal methods to your client Ask questions about the condition to ensure you are actually dealing with a contra indication It is always helpful to ask the client if they know what the condition is how long it has been there and whether they are receiving any treatment for the condition Contagious skin diseases Refer the client to a medical professional if required to either receive medical clearance to have the intimate waxing service or to have the condition diagnosed and treatment prescribed Heat rash Heat rash is a type of skin rash that can affect susceptible people and usually develops in parts of the body that rub together such as between the inner thighs or under

symptoms of allergic reactions can vary from mild to severe and can include hives itching rashes and contact dermatitis If your client has known allergies to waxing products or ingredients in waxing products you should not perform a waxing service using products containing any ingredients the client is allergic to If your client suffers from allergies in general using a wax for sensitive skin

may appear as a rash redness pus itching or lumps in the area to be waxed If a waxing service is performed on a client who appears to have a contagious skin condition there is a high risk of the condition being spread to you other clients and other therapists Never attempt to diagnose a contagious skin condition or tell a client you believe they may be contagious You should politely inform the client that they should seek medical attention and to rebook for the waxing service after the condition has been diagnosed and treated Oedema Fluid retention may appear as red swollen tight and possibly itchy skin If the client is suffering from oedema in the area to be waxed it could be a symptom of an underlying illness or problem and the waxing service should not be performed The client should be referred to a medical practitioner for diagnosis and treatment Pubic lice These will appear as visible lice eggs or crawling lice in the pubic area Lice are highly contagious and can easily be spread to you other clients and other staff A client that exhibits signs of pubic lice should never be treated while the parasites are present Do not attempt to diagnose the contra indication

What you should do EFFECTS An adverse effect is a reaction caused by a treatment or product An adverse effect may happen during a waxing service or it may happen after the client goes home Waxing services have a few very common adverse effects If your client is new to waxing it is very important that you explain these common adverse effects prior to starting the waxing service so that your client knows what to expect Abrasions and torn skin If the skin is not supported properly during the waxing service or the client is taking medication that has thinned the skin then the waxing service could result in skin being removed causing an abrasion This will cause your client considerable discomfort and is the result of the lack of a consultation being performed or poor waxing techniques used by the therapist Accidents can happen but it is important that you ensure that you are trained properly in waxing techniques to avoid this happening What you should do Apply a cool compress to the area Non intact skin carries the potential for infection so if possible your client should wear a dressing over the area where the skin has been removed Allergic and hive like reactions Allergic reactions can present as erythema redness rash hives itchiness and stinging or burning For some clients who are more sensitive it can be common to develop a hive like reaction from a waxing service that disappears after a few hours This is caused by the body creating histamine due to the trauma to the skin caused by the waxing service Other clients may develop allergic reactions to the wax or products used What you should do Some clients are more sensitive than others It can be quite common for sensitive clients to develop a small amount of hives after a waxing service If the client is regular to waxing they will know how long they take to disappear If the allergic reaction is not anticipated and you believe it is due to a sensitivity to the product used then all product should be removed immediately and a cool compress applied The treatment should be ceased until it is established what ingredient is causing the reaction The allergic reaction should be recorded on the client s treatment plan Spotting of the skin When a hair is removed during the anagen phase of growth it is still attached to the papilla which is the blood supply to the hair During a waxing service the hair is forcefully removed from the papilla which can cause the papilla to bleed for a small amount of time Usually the amount of blood is very small and does not make it to the surface of the skin It will appear as red dots within the hair follicle below the surface of the skin which is referred to as spotting Some more sensitive clients may also end up with raised lumps where the hair has been removed as well as spotting This will usually disappear within a couple of hours and is quite common for people with red pigmented hair 28 This is an anticipated adverse effect caused by waxing You should advise any new clients to a waxing service of this effect during the consultation so that they know what to expect Spotting on the skin can last from anywhere between half an hour to 24 hours depending on the client Bleeding follicles If the hair is in the anagen stage of growth and is a terminal hair with a strong blood supply when the papilla bleeds during removal the blood will often make it to the surface of the skin This can be quite common when waxing pubic hair What you should do This is why you should wear personal protective equipment during a waxing service such as disposable gloves Apply a light amount of pressure with a tissue and dispose of the tissue immediately after use according to the Health and Hygiene and or Skin Penetration Guidelines for your state or territory Broken hair This occurs when the hair is not removed by from the root and snaps off at the opening of the hair follicle This can sometimes appear as stubble and result in regrowth of hair much sooner than if the hair is removed from the root What you should do Ensure you use proper waxing techniques and follow the manufacturer instructions Always ensure to remove the wax at an angle as close to the skin as possible Pulling upwards can result in hair breakage Bruising Like torn skin bruising can be a common adverse effect of waxing Some clients will bruise more easily than others but usually bruising is caused by poor waxing techniques Bruising usually occurs because the skin has not been supported properly during the waxing service Bruising is more common when strip wax is used but can occur with hard wax as well What you should do It is vital that you use good waxing techniques and support the skin so that it is taut when the wax is removed If bruising does occur apply a cold compress immediately Excessive erythema Some more sensitive clients may develop excessive redness and inflammation in the area that has been waxed This can also occur if the client is on blood pressure medication What you should do Use a cool compress on the area for clients suffering from severe erythema Erythema should only last for a few hours after the service If the area also has swelling and seems more severe than a normal reaction it may be an allergic reaction and the client may need to be referred to a medical practitioner Ingrown hair Ingrown hairs are a common condition caused by waxing They occur when the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin Often ingrown hair can cause inflammation of the hair follicle Ingrown hair can occur after waxing when dead skin cells accumulate in the follicle a papule is formed as the skin heals Hair growing in the area gets trapped under the papule and is prevented from exiting the skin Ingrown hairs are a very common adverse effect to intimate waxing services What you should do Give your client advice about ingrown hair during the consultation especially if they are new to intimate waxing Explain preventative measures to your clients such as exfoliation of the area and the use of ingrown hair treatment products that your workplace may sell 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate

CREATING THE After conducting a thorough consultation with your client to determine their requirements for the waxing service and ensuring they do not have any contraindications to the service you will need to design a treatment plan for your client The treatment plan is a workplace record that records the treatment that you are going to perform on the client The treatment plan always needs to be approved and confirmed by the client prior to beginning the waxing service When designing the treatment plan you will need to record the following information treatment plan CONDITION CHARACTERISTICS Red hair Skin is often fair and sensitive Hair will be lightly pigmented and coarse EFFECT OF CONDITION Clients with red hair often have a lower pain threshold than other clients May be more susceptible to sensitivity and skin reactions such as erythema and red lumps or hives after waxing The hair can be coarse and more difficult to remove than other hair types Client s may often bleed due to the coarseness of the hair Sensitive skin The treatment that is going to be carried out Skin may look red dry and irritated Client will usually know they are sensitive Any areas that require special attention or contra indications that will cause an adaption to the treatment Skin may develop erythema hives or lumps on the surface of the skin after waxing Once you have determined the procedure and products that will be used for the intimate waxing service you will need to explain the entire procedure to your client so that they can agree to the waxing service The client should know everything about the treatment prior to giving approval to go ahead and have the treatment If the client requires modifications to be made to the proposed treatment these should be noted on the treatment plan Short hair Hair that is shorter than the optimum waxing length Usually less than 1cm Apply plenty of pre wax product to the area to create a barrier between the wax and the skin and to help the wax adhere to the skin Ensure to apply plenty of soothing lotion and post wax care If client bleeds ensure to follow infection control procedures If necessary a cool compress can be applied after the wax to soothe the area Discuss your client s skin with them to identify allergies Always use a wax designed for sensitive skin and try to avoid waxing products that contain fragrance and colour Mild reactions will usually subside after 24 hours Products to be used for the treatment Before you design your treatment plan you will need to assess the client s skin and hair growth in the area to be waxed The following table is a list of common skin and hair conditions their characteristics and the actions that will need to be considered in order to perform a quality intimate waxing service HOW TO TREAT The hair may be too short for an optimal waxing outcome which means hair will not be removed If you suspect the hair is too short to wax be honest with your client and explain your concerns The client may wish to rebook when hair growth is longer If your client wishes to proceed with the treatment ensure to clearly explain the result that the client can expect so that your client does not have unrealistic expectations Long hair Vellus hair Hair that will require trimming before waxing Usually hair that is longer than 1 5cm If the hair is too long it can be difficult to remove and cause extra pain for your client Fine downy hair without pigment This type of hair may be difficult to remove with a hard wax Trim long hair prior to waxing to approximately 1cm Hair will also be more prone to breakage This type of hair is rare in the genital region however some clients may have this type of hair close to their naval or at the top of their thighs Strip wax is best to use to remove this type of hair 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 29

Always use the correct terminology if INTIMATE WAXING must do s PATCH TEST For first time clients conducting a patch test will help to avoid allergic reactions to the wax product or pre and post wax products Sometimes this is also a requirement to ensure your workplace insurances remain valid A patch test should be conducted on a suitable area of skin at least 24 hours prior to the client s first waxing service It is essential that a patch test is carried out if the client has a history of sensitivity or known allergies To conduct a patch test apply pre wax lotion followed by the wax to the intended area to be waxed Remove the wax and then apply the post wax product Ask the client to report any abnormal skin reaction such as redness irritation and swelling If the client has an abnormal skin reaction to the patch test the waxing service should not be performed with the product used You may wish to trial other products by patch test to see if they are more appropriate for the client The results of the patch test should be recorded on the client s treatment plan MAINTAIN SENSITIVITY MATURITY CONFIDENTIALITY Always conduct yourself professionally when performing a female intimate waxing service and be sensitive to your client Intimate waxing can be uncomfortable for some clients and the client may feel vulnerable especially those that have never experienced this kind of wax before It is important that you always treat your client with professionalism and keep all aspects of the service confidential and private To avoid misinterpretation it is extremely important that you always use professional language conversation and behaviour This is crucial to avoid potential legal implications as there is a risk that your actions during the intimate waxing service could be misinterpreted by the client as a sexual assault Ensure that you have explained the treatment procedures to the client during the consultation so that they know what to expect Especially if the client is a new client to intimate waxing you are describing parts of the female genitalia The use of slang may cause your client to become offended When the client enters the room explain how they should prepare for the treatment using language that is clear and concise Explain to the client the clothes that will need to be removed and how to protect their modesty If your workplace uses disposable g strings explain to the client how to put the g string on If your client chooses not to wear the g string this is usually fine as long as it is in accordance with your workplace policies and procedures Always give your client the option to wear a g string however to provide a sense of security In order to avoid physical contact as much as possible during the service it is very important that your client is given a wipe to cleanse the area themselves prior to waxing You should not touch your client in intimate areas if it can be avoided This helps to keep the service professional and minimises the risk of your client misinterpreting your actions The client should be shown where to dispose of the wipe after it has been used and shown a place where they can wash their hands if they wish to do so Always leave the room while your client undresses and provide them with a modesty towel that they can use to cover themselves with after they have undressed Protect your client s modesty throughout the waxing service by keeping them covered as much as possible Ensure that the door to the treatment room is closed throughout the entire service If you need to leave the room for any reason during the service ensure to cover the client prior to opening the door You should instruct the client on the correct positioning for the intimate waxing service and show them how to use a towel to cover areas not being treated if they wish to do so Be very clear about how you would like the client to position themselves There are many different techniques to performing an intimate waxing service and you may use different techniques than the client has experienced in the past Be mindful that some clients may not be comfortable in certain positions You should always use positions that work for you as the therapist but also make the client feel the most comfortable and less exposed Always ask your client to help you support the skin This will help you to avoid touching the client s intimate areas as much as possible to keep the waxing service professional IMPORTANCE OF CLIENT SELF CLEANSING PRIOR TO THE WAXING SERVICE Cleansing the area prior to waxing is vital to ensure a high level of hygiene is maintained and to help avoid cross contamination In order to help remove micro organisms from the skin prior to waxing your client should be given a cleansing wipe to cleanse the area to be waxed There are products on the market that are designed specifically for this purpose and are gentle enough to use in intimate areas WAX TEMPERATURE Always check the consistency of the wax before you apply the wax to your client s skin Wax should never be the consistency of water This means the wax is very hot and could cause severe burns to your client Generally the wax should be the consistency of honey when you apply it to your client s skin and should glide on easily If the wax is hard to apply or stringy it is too cool Check the temperature of the wax on the inside of your wrist to ensure it will be a comfortable temperature for your client Always ask the client when you apply the wax if the temperature is comfortable Constantly monitor the wax temperature throughout the service Sometimes the temperature of the wax can vary during the treatment and you may need to adjust the temperature of the wax pot Ask your client throughout the treatment if the temperature is comfortable SUPPORT THE SKIN Supporting the skin is an absolute must when performing an intimate waxing service however in order to avoid touching your client in intimate areas as much as possible you should ask the client to help you support the skin If the skin is not properly supported there is a high chance that bruising will occur or skin will be removed which is very painful for your client and may lead to infection MONITOR CLIENT S REACTIONS DURING THE SERVICE Always monitor your client s reactions to ensure that your client is not in excessive amounts of pain If your client does seem to be in a lot of pain you may need to adjust the service according to your client s requirements

Step by step guide to female intimate waxing Applying strip wax In order to use strip wax for an intimate waxing service you will need to ensure that you are well practiced in your waxing techniques as poor waxing techniques when using strip wax can easily cause injury to the client 1 2 3 Assess the hair growth and determine the direction that the hair is growing in 4 Apply the wax to the skin in the direction of the hair growth The spatula should be held at a 90 degree angle to ensure the wax application is as thin as possible Do not butter the wax by tilting the spatula forward as this will create a wax application that is too thick If you are applying wax to the labia area ensure the skin is held taut during the application to avoid the wax being applied too thickly 5 6 7 Always check the consistency and temperature of the wax before applying it to your client s skin Dip the spatula in the wax Remove the excess wax on the sides and tip of the spatula by wiping the spatula against the metal bar of the wax pot Fold back a 2cm edge at the end of the waxing strip to allow you to have an area of the strip that will not get wax onto it so that you can grip onto the strip properly Applying hot hard wax There are a number of reasons hot hard wax is typically recommended for female intimate waxing These include Hot wax tends to be a lot gentler on sensitive areas The heat of hot wax can open the hair follicles to allow the hair to be more easily removed Hot wax is better suited to coarser hair types To perform a successful wax it is important to ensure the hot wax is applied correctly The following steps should be followed when using hot wax 1 2 Assess the hair growth and the direction that the hair is growing in 3 Dip the spatula into the wax pot The hot wax should reach a couple of inches up the length of the spatula Be careful not to dip the spatula in too far as this will make the wax difficult to apply 4 When using hot hard wax applying the wax against the hair growth will allow the wax to bond to the hair more easily Apply the wax to the skin using the tip of the spatula in circular motions ensuring there is a thick edge If the wax is too thin it will go brittle and be difficult to remove 5 Ideally the wax should extend slightly onto an area that is hair free so that you can lift the edge of the wax without causing discomfort for the client Apply the strip to the wax and bond firmly by pressing along the length of the strip in the direction of hair growth Ask the client to help to hold the skin as taut as possible Remove the strip as quickly as possible against the direction of hair growth When removing the strip keep it as close to the skin as possible Do not pull the strip off by pulling upwards as this can cause bruising and break the hair rather than effectively removing it from the root Never re dip spatulas back into the wax pot after you have applied the wax to your client All spatulas should be disposed of immediately according to the Health and Hygiene Guidelines for your state or territory 6 7 Always check the consistency of the wax Hard wax should have a thicker core of wax in the centre To remove the wax start at the core and then mix it with the runnier wax towards the edge of the wax pot using a disposable wooden spatula The wax should be allowed to dry to a point where it is hard but still flexible If you allow the wax to dry for too long the wax may go brittle and will break rather than effectively removing hair When you become more experienced at waxing you will be able to apply the wax in multiple patches at once to speed up the waxing service Ask the client to help you to hold the skin taut if necessary and remove the wax against the direction of hair growth in a swift motion The faster the removal the less pain for the client 8 When removing the wax keep it as close to the skin as possible and do not pull upwards the wax should be removed at approximately a 45 degree angle If you pull upwards while removing the wax this can cause bruising and break the hair rather than remove the hair from the root 9 Repeat the steps until all hair is removed 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 35

intimate waxing PROCEDURES The following steps should be used for all intimate waxing services 1 When the client enters the room explain to the client the clothes to remove and whether a disposable g string is required to be worn Ask the client to lay on the bed and cover themselves with the modesty towel 2 Show the client the cleansing wipe and explain to them how to use it and where to dispose of it 3 Apply pre wax product according to workplace policies and procedures 4 Trim hair if required 5 Assess the hair growth and determine the direction that the hair is growing in 6 Test the wax temperature 1 Start with the client lying face up on the bed Use a modesty towel to cover as much of the client as possible 2 Start on the right side of the body Ask the client to bend their leg upwards and outwards like a ballerina This will help to expose the pubic bone labia and down into their buttocks 3 Apply the wax to the outer edges of the bikini area near the top of the thigh This area is reasonably large and flat so a larger spatula can be used with a larger amount of wax Wait until the wax has set and remove 4 Apply the wax to the inner upper thigh just out from the labia Some client s may not have hair in this area but it is best to check just in case Remove the wax 5 Work your way inwards by applying wax to the sides of the pubic bone Remove the wax 6 INTIMATE WAXING PROCEDURES FOR FULL REMOVAL A full Brazilian wax includes removing the hair from the front of the mons pubis the labia majora and minora and in between the buttocks Many therapists have different methods that they use to perform a full intimate waxing service and as you become more proficient at waxing you too will find various methods that work best for you However it is important to remember that the client s comfort and dignity is paramount when performing these treatments In addition it is always best to work from the outside inwards to create a systematic pattern and avoid missing any patches of hair The following steps are to perform an intimate waxing service on the right side of the body followed by the left side of the body This is an example only and your workplace will have their own technique Apply the wax to the bottom half of the labia majora It is best to get as far around the back and into the buttocks as possible as it will make it easier for you when you eventually turn the client around to wax the buttocks Remove the wax 9 Apply the wax to the top half of the inner labia majora Once again ask the client to hold the skin to help you stretch the area Remove the wax 10 Apply the wax on the top of the pubic bone in sections until all hair is removed 11 You will have now completed one half of the full Brazilian wax Check that all the hair has been removed from that side and if necessary apply additional patches of wax as needed If you have already been over the area twice with the wax take care to use tweezers to remove any remaining hairs to avoid irritating the skin by putting wax over it too many times 12 13 Ask the client to turn onto their left side Ask them to position themselves so that the top leg is pointing in front of them and their back leg is pointing behind them This will help to separate their buttocks so you are able to wax this area much easier If necessary ask the client to reach behind them and lift their top buttock upwards to separate them further 14 Apply wax in a long strip from the bottom of the labia up towards the middle point of the buttocks Remove the wax 7 15 8 17 18 19 Apply the wax to the top half of the labia majora Remember if you are using hot wax to apply the wax against the hair growth For most clients this will mean the therapist will apply the wax in an upwards motion towards the belly button Remove the wax Apply the wax to the bottom half of the inner labia majora You may need the client s assistance to hold the labia apart so that you can apply the wax effectively Be mindful to tell the client to keep hold of the area to avoid getting wax stuck where it s not meant to go Once the wax has set remove the wax Repeat steps 4 17 on the left side of the body Apply another strip from the middle point of the buttocks up towards the top of the buttocks Remove the wax 16 Check to ensure all hair has been removed If necessary repeat with another patch until the hair has been completely removed Ask the client to turn to the other side and repeat steps 19 22 Apply the post treatment product to the client s buttock area Ask the client to check the wax to ensure they are fully satisfied with the treatment and no hair is left ONCE YOU HAVE MADE SURE EVERY AREA OF THE SKIN IS HAIR FREE APPLY POST WAX TREATMENT SOLUTION TO HELP SOOTHE THE AREA

6 Apply wax to the top of the pubic bone to tidy up around the landing strip Be careful not to go too close 7 8 Perform steps 2 7 on the left side of the body INTIMATE WAXING PROCEDURES FOR PARTIAL REMOVAL A landing strip refers to a small strip of hair left on top of the mons pubis The strip is normally about two finger widths wide and four centimetres long However the dimensions will largely depend on the client s preference and it is important to discuss this with the client prior to performing the wax It is also important to double check if the client would like the strip clipped shorter This can be done at the beginning when clipping the rest of the hair ready for the wax Once you have waxed each side take a look at the landing strip to make sure it is even Ask the client to take a look to make sure the strip meets their requirements Once the wax has been completed on the front apply the post treatment product to the client s skin and ask them to please turn over onto their left side 9 Perform the wax in accordance to steps 13 19 of the full Brazilian steps Be sure to get the client to double check their wax once you are done to ensure that they are fully satisfied with the treatment Starting on the right side apply the wax on the outer edge of the bikini line at the top of the thighs Once the wax has set remove the wax 2 Apply the wax to the top inside of the thigh near the outer labia Remove the wax 3 Apply the wax further in on the bikini line on top of the pubic bone Remove the wax 4 Apply the wax on the bottom half of the outer labia Get as far down into the buttocks as much as possible without allowing the wax to stick to other areas Ask the client to help you stretch the area if necessary Remove the wax 5 Apply the wax to the outer top half of the labia The wax should be applied just up to where the pubic bone and the labia meet to avoid taking hair off the landing strip Remove the wax 1 If a stencil is used it should always be disposable The back of the stencil will usually have a sticky back so that you can stick it to your client s skin on the area where you want the shape You may also need to put a barrier cream on the back of the stencil so the wax doesn t touch the hair underneath the stencil If it is done the right way the image will remain clear 2 If using a pencil carefully draw the shape onto the client s skin You may use a paper stencil to help get the dimensions right Ask the client to check the shape before you start waxing to ensure that it is the dimensions they require If adjustments need to be made you can easily remove the eyebrow pencil and begin again Be sure that the eyebrow pencil is sharpened in between clients for hygiene 3 Perform the wax as per partial removal Take care not to go too close to the outlined shape 4 Usually if a shaping template is used strip wax will need to be used on the mons pubis area over and around the stencil The sequence in which the wax should be applied is very similar to performing a full Brazilian wax Let s take a look 1 Steps to performing a shape intimate wax INTIMATE WAXING PROCEDURES FOR SHAPE Occasionally clients may ask for a shape to be waxed into the mons pubis area The shape could be something simple such as a triangle large rectangle or square or something more complicated such as a heart arrow or even a lightning bolt While the more complicated shapes are usually very rare it is important to know how to do this kind of wax if a client requests it The heart shaped wax can often be popular around Valentine s Day particularly in salons where waxing is a key treatment The main steps to performing this type of wax are very similar to performing a full or partial Brazilian wax except that the therapist needs to take care not to wax too much off the top of the mons pubis so that the shape can be easily made 5 Extreme care must be taken when tidying up the edges of the shape It is best to use a brow beater stick to give you more guidance Go around the shape with small patches and if necessary use your tweezers to help give the shape more defined edges and to avoid taking too much hair off the shape by waxing 6 Once both you and the client are satisfied with the shape apply the postwax treatment product and ask the client to turn onto their left side so you may wax their bottom 7 Ask the client to thoroughly check their wax to ensure no hair is left 2016 2017 Skin Deep Learning SHBBHRS002 Provide female intimate waxing services V1 37
