WHAT & HOW
Waxing is a non-permanent hair removal method that removes hair from the root using a soft wax or hard wax. A thin layer of wax is spread over the skin, and a cloth strip is pressed on top and ripped off in a quick action against the direction of hair growth. Using hard wax, the semi-harden strip of wax is ripped off in a swift motion against the direction of hair growth.
