# 121 Waxing and Threading - 10 Benefits You May Not Know!

What are the Benefits of Waxing and Threading?

Let's wax on about waxing off today. And let's thread on about threading off (doesn't really roll off the tongue as much, does it...?).
Do you struggle to decide whether waxing or threading is best to offer your clients? The truth is, there are multiple benefits of each. Let's take a deep-dive into them. It might help you decide which you want to use, and if you're considering adding these services to your business, you might just discover that BOTH services are really valuable, and there's no reason at all that you can't offer both! 
And to be honest, offering options to clients is always going to be a great choice. If you happen to have a lash client who wants a hair removal service and has sensitive skin, and they discover that you offer BOTH waxing and threading, why would they bother looking elsewhere? They can be threaded by you after their lash lift. What a dream. By offering both services, you're increasing your chances of long-term clients, and avoiding having clients move to a competitor who does offer all alternatives.

What are the Benefits of Waxing?

1. It's fast and efficient, and your skin feels awesome! 

Probably the best selling-point of getting a wax is the fact that it doesn't take a long time, and you skin is left feeling soooo smooth. You can wax multiple clients in a day, and they're going to leave feeling so refreshed and clean!

2. Over time, the hair becomes lighter and softer, and also finer. 

The technique of waxing is such that the hair attaches to the wax, which hardens, and then the hair is pulled out of the skin at its root. Over time and after multiple waxes, the hair that grows back actually ends up being lighter in colour, and much softer to touch.  

3. Waxing doubles as a skin exfoliant - hello 2-in-1 service!

This is because the warm wax removes all of the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface in one swift motion. That’s a 2-for-the-price-of-1 treatment, y’all! 

4. Limited regrowth between appointments

A big selling-point. When clients can leave knowing that they won't have heaps of regrowth before their next appointment, this is going to add to their satisfaction from the service. It's great to be able to offer a service that leaves your client feeling really clean with lovely smooth skin!

5. It's Convenient! Wax either in a salon or at home.

This is especially beneficial if you're considering adding this service to your business. You're going to have flexibility in the way that you provide the service. This is a huge benefit because you're not limited to a particular space. It also means that you can charge extra for the service (keep in mind that you will have to travel), and you can also have your client bring interested friends or family members to their house so you can get through multiple appointments at the one location, maximising your time and distance travelled! 

 

What are the Benefits of Threading?

1. Great results!

Precision is so achievable when it comes to shaping brows especially. The nature of the technique of threading (2 pieces of cotton thread twisting and catching the hair) is such a precise technique that you can really be precise with the shape of the brow. This is a huge benefit and will definitely lead to customer satisfaction.

2. The perfect solution to hair removal for sensitive skin

This is probably the biggest benefit of offering both services. When you have a client who has sensitive skin, and you're only offering waxing... you may just lose that client. If, on the other hand, you can offer threading as well, then you're giving that client an alternative hair removal technique that they'll be super stoked about, because they won't have to shop elsewhere for the service!

 

3. No ingrown hairs!

This is a really good reason to offer threading. Clients love to know that they're not going to come away from a service with ingrown hairs, something they have to deal with themselves. It's a comforting thought for them to know that they can rely on the effectiveness of the service, and not have to worry about any funky hairs until their next appointment!

 

4. Just Like Waxing... Quick and Efficient

Similarly to waxing, threading is really efficient when it comes to time. Threading brows can take as little as 5 - 15 minutes. The results are precise, and quick! 

 

5. It's an affordable service to offer

Threading is such an affordable service to offer. There is no unit cost, aside from time, and the material cost is so low, you can thread multiple clients in a day and make a great profit! (we're going to be sharing a useful chart for you soon on the potential profit you can make in a week from threading!).
