Tearing Down Sterotypes – One Wax at a Time

As you may have noticed, we Pure Spa Direct team members are a little obsessed with waxing. We love the trends, we love trying new wax, and we love reading about it all!

Skin Inc magazine published a fantastic article regarding the shifting trends in waxing recently. In the article “The Changing World of Hair Removal,” Cali VanAelst, national trainer for Cirepil by Perron Rigot, explores how waxing is breaking stereotypes – being beauty stereotypes, gender stereotypes, and more.

The beauty industry is one of acceptance and empowerment, and no one is in a better place to promote body positivity than a waxer! Just because your client is there to get a Brazilian doesn’t mean she also wants an underarm wax…..but maybe she does! Figuring out how to offer add-on services in an understanding manner is going to be key, and those in the industry who nail that will see much success.


Cirepil, one of America’s best-selling wax brands, is taking a very open and broad approach. This year, they have introduced their new Tattoo wax – wax designed not only to remove hair but also to refresh tattoos!

The beauty of our industry is the beauty of all people, and we love brands who are supportive!

What stereotypes have you seen being broken recently?

Looking for the Trendiest Service to Add to Your Waxing Menu?

Waxing is huge, and that doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon. Another huge trend are tattoos! What do they have in common? Tattoo waxing, of course!

I know, I know…..but hear me out!

Waxing is a great prep for tattoo application, but there is a new sought-after waxing trend that will begin gaining popularity. Add it to your service menu now to get ahead of your competition!

Why wax tattoos? According to Skin, Inc. (https://www.skininc.com/treatments/hairremoval/Wax-That-Tatt-505569081.html), 40% of millennials have tattoos, women are more likely to be tattooed than men, and the tattoo industry is a $3 billion dollar industry. What does this mean? Your clients are most likely tattooed, and will most likely be happy for you to offer them a new service they didn’t even know they needed!

What does tattoo waxing do? Although traditionally, waxing is for hair removal, using a hard wax will also remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Dead skin cells can make a tattoo look faded, so waxing can reveal a brighter, revived looking tattoo! A word of caution, though – make sure the tattoo is FULLY healed prior to waxing over it!

Looking for a great wax for tattoo waxing? Look no further than Cirepil’s newest wax, Boudoir. This innovative wax is hypoallergenic, ideal for sensitive and fragile skin. They recommend this wax for tattoo preparation, after-care, and maintenance!
