Why You Should Wax Your Back

Why You Should Wax Your Back

If you’ve been putting off getting that back waxed, we’ve got just what the doctor ordered. For some people, waxing is just the perfect method of hair removal. And if you've been considering getting waxed for quite some time, we’re here to guide you through the process from beginning to end!

What is back waxing?

Our bodies are capable of producing a lot of hair. In an attempt to keep us warmer, less sweaty, and less likely to experience eye irritation, certain areas of our body produce way more hair than others. Back waxing is popular among many people who prefer the smooth sensation of hairless back skin. As one of the most requested body waxing areas, we’re here to destigmatize and set you up for success in every corner of your waxing needs.

Why should you consider back waxing?

Back waxing is easier on the body, and it lasts so much longer than shaving. With shaving, you risk more damage, nicks, and razor burn issues than you would experience with waxing. For most people, for weeks, meaning you don’t need to worry about the tedious, time-consuming nature of shaving your back.

Back waxing is not only the easiest way to remove back hair, but it makes for the best coverage, pulling the hair directly from the hair follicle. Getting rid of the blunt cut that is left behind after shaving can also reduce the number of ingrown hairs typically subject to showing up after hair removal.

How much does back waxing cost?

Although many studios charge a broad range for waxing services, you can expect to pay $60 for a full back waxing session at Stripped Wax & Beauty.

Why you should always go to a professional esthetician for waxing

There are plenty of reasons why you should seek out services directly from a professional esthetician for all of your waxing needs. First and foremost, waxing is a dangerous process involving temperatures that, if not done correctly, can actually burn your skin. Soft waxes are typically applied at 86 to 104°F, with hard waxes usually sitting around 130°F.

What to expect from your back waxing appointment

If you’re new to the world of esthetics and skin care, waxing might feel a little intimidating. The good news is, you’re not alone and estheticians are trained specifically to know how to support and guide people who are brand new to waxing.

Preparing for a back wax

To prepare for getting your back waxed, you’ll want to make sure that your body hairs are at the proper length. If your hair doesn’t grow out to at least a quarter of an inch prior to your waxing appointment, you may be left with stray hairs that are too short to adhere to the wax itself. 

You can refrain from moisturizing the day of your session and make sure you exfoliate gently while you’re in the shower the night before. Nothing crazy, but a light, textured washcloth should do just the trick if you don’t have a body scrub on hand.

A back waxing appointment at Stripped Wax & Beauty

When you schedule a back waxing appointment with Stripped Wax & Beauty, you subject yourself to a group of waxing professionals who are licensed estheticians. So take everything you’ve heard about waxing up until this moment with a big old grain of salt. The experts are here to steer you clear of any waxing misinformation. And at your appointment, don’t hesitate to ask questions about the process, aftercare, or what to expect in the next few sessions.

Tips for back waxing aftercare

After your wax appointment, you can enjoy a cool to lukewarm bath or shower, but refrain from hot, steamy situations – this includes saunas and hot tubs, of course. No tanning, going to the gym or swimming in a chlorinated pool, either.

As much as you want to feel the sensation of your smooth new skin, please avoid touching or scratching the freshly waxed area to give your skin time to heal. And of course, loose-fitting clothing is your best-case scenario.
