As I am strolling the aisles of my local pharmacy, I am looking for the most efficient wax strips on the market; with a pandemic going on, I decided to learn how to wax my own body hair to decrease the times I go out. I go home and cut little strips of papered wax and start with my upper lip, and painfully move to my brows, arms and legs. After about two hours, I gave up and fully looked at my vandalized body in the mirror; I had random patches of hair that were sticking out and I decided I was done for the day. The whole process took me about two and a half hours, and I thought to myself if I went to my salon, it would have been done in half the time with much better results. Some things are meant to be performed by the trained professionals.
Body hair on women can still be a taboo subject to some people, but I am here to enforce that hair is completely natural and everyone has to choose whether they would like to remove it or leave it organically on their body; there is never a wrong choice. I for one, choose to wax it, and in normal circumstances, go to a salon to have it removed professionally. International Beauty Institute is renowned for world-class instructors and state of the art classes that can transform a passionate student into a professional. IBI will ensure complete perfection into areas such as anatomy and physiology of skin (skin diseases and disorders and types of hair growth), temporary hair removal (soft and hard wax), and a practical in the clinic (client consultations, hair removal on different body parts, sanitary practices and treatments and after-care). The processes and techniques of wax hair removal a student learns at International Beauty Institute are much more advanced than any DIY methods we can produce at home.
We’re living in a tricky time, but our beauty standards don’t have to pay the price. A self-body wax does not compare to a the one of a certified aesthetician, and that is why I encourage seeing a professional over doing it yourself. Yes, it is heavier on the wallet for you to go to a salon but the result will be worth it. A certified aesthetician will know every detail about your appointment because they have been properly trained, and that brings peace to every client that walks through their door. Sometimes it is better to invest in a practice so you get the results you want permanently, than to invest your time in something cheap and regret it later. Waxing hair removal should always be left to the passionate professionals.
