Hot wax is typically thicker in the pot and is applied thickly too. Typically, hot wax is good for sensitive areas, and where hair is thicker, such as the bikini area.
Therapist uses a disposable wooden spatula stick to apply it. Its likely put on a few layers, and move the stick around in a few directions, and then leave one edge with some extra wax. Over the next minute or so, the wax will harden slightly during which time your therapist will likely apply wax to another area to save time. Once ready, she will peel away it. So, no wax strip involved, you can just directly peel off this wax.
it’s often the wax of choice for Bikini/Hollywood/Brazilian, also underarm and sometimes facial too. As the wax is left on the skin for up to a minute, the heat opens the pores and hair follicles allowing the hair to wax out much more easily.
