Facial Waxing Tools needed: Microwavable wax Eyebrow razor Muslin cloth cut into strips Salon quality scissors Wax remover Eyebrow brush/comb combo Applicator sticks Tweezers Start out by cleansing the area you want to wax with soap and water. Allow for the area to dry thoroughly. Heat your wax in the microwave for no more than 1 minute and 20 seconds. Let stand for about 30 seconds to ensure consistency. Stir thoroughly with your applicator stick. Remove a small amount of the wax from the container using the applicator stick. Blow it to cool it off it is still too hot for your taste. Apply the wax to your eyebrow area in the same form you would like your eyebrows to be. If you like them straight then apply the wax straight across if you prefer an arch then apply the wax in an arch shape. Take the muslin strip and place it on the waxed area pressing it into place 2 or 3 times to allow a good bond. Count to 3 and then firmly pull the strip in the opposite direction. If working on the left eye pull to the right – if working on the right eye pull to the left. (REMEMBER firm but not fast and hard, doing so will result in the loss of skin!) If you pull to gently nothing will come off and you will be left with an eyebrow full of wax. Once both eyes have been waxed, use the tweezers to pluck any stray hair that the waxing did not remove. Now add the wax remover to your eyebrow and work it across the skin for about 1 or 2 minutes using your fingernails to remove any residue. Once you feel the wax has been sufficiently removed clean off the tweezers to remove any residue. Now you can use your eyebrow razor to get any hair the waxing and tweezing left behind to ensure a clean hairless finish. (REMEMBER this is a razor so be gentle) Finally use the comb side of your eyebrow brush/comb to comb thru the eyebrow hold at the bottom and use the scissors to trim off the additional for a uniform length. Once complete use the brush side to smooth out. Use the same waxing procedure to wax your upper lip. Since the hair on the upper lip is much thinner the waxing should remove it all. Be extremely careful with this process. Serious damage can occur. Hot wax is just that, HOT! Do not allow the wax to spill out onto anything as it is extremely difficult to remove even with the wax remover. Use the lid of the wax container to lay your wax laden tools until they can be cleaned.
