    Hi, this is Lavern with Ana Visage and today we are going to be performing a bikini wax. Now what we are going to need are sanitizer, baby powder, aloe vera, baby oil, alcohol, and toner and astringent and water, your wax kit, and also with that wax kit comes the strips and the sticks. Also important to remember that with waxing the bikini area, you want to the hold the skin very tight to avoid bruising and also if the hair is longer than the a quarter inch, you might want to trim and let s get started.

    First thing you want to do is sanitize your hand. With the bikini area, it s definitely much more susceptible to infection, so don t want to avoid this step. Now we are going to position the client, so that we have the area exposed and to avoid getting any wax on the clothing, if they are wearing anything, you can actually take one of the strips that comes with the kit and place that inside of the bikini, like that. Also expose the area that you are going to wax, like that. Now again we are going to be applying the wax in the direction of the hair growth and removing opposite. We are going to be prepping the area. Now, we are going to take one of these larger strips actually, and that you can apply a mixture of water and alcohol and wipe the area so as to remove any excess oils, in that area. Using baby powder, we are going to put a little excess into our hands, pat some on to the area to be waxed. Okay, with our stick we are going to dip it into the wax, wipe off the excess on the side of the pot and apply in the area of hair growth. Now you can actually use apply wax to smaller areas, so as to avoid any pain. We take our strip, pat it down again in the direction of the hair growth. Grab the end, pull the skin tight to avoid bruising, and with the flick of the wrist pull off. Then also to apply the aloe vera, you are going to use your strip and apply that to the area to soothe. And that s how we do bikini waxing.
