Q: Why won’t the hair come out?
Is the hair too long? If so trim it

Q: The skin is very Red.
Check the temperature of your wax and turn your wax heater down.
Ask the client if this is a normal skin reaction for them.
Do not keep waxing over the same area.
Q: Why is there spots of blood on the client’s skin?
Blood spotting is very common with people who shave as the follicles are large and it’s a tiny amount of blood rising to the top.
Q: Why has my client got stubble a few days after waxing?
Sometimes hair can be brittle and may just have broken due to no fault of yours.
Did you remove the Hive original hot wax strip in the wrong direction rather than in line with the body?
The strip should be pulled almost flat to the body and not towards the ceiling.
Stubble can appear if your client is a regular shaver, and it can take a few waxes before the stubble reduces.
Q: The skin has got purple marks on it after the strip is removed
Was the hair too long?
Stretch the skin taut and position the client to maximise skin stretching.
Don’t keep going over the same area.
Q: The skin has lifted or torn
A: Apply antiseptic cream. Tell them to go to the GP if it doesn’t heal.
The flat round ended Birchwood spatulas provide an accurate and efficient wax application.
