Mobile Waxing is Increasingly in Demand
For a successful waxing service, you do not necessarily need your own premises. All types of waxing treatments can be carried out on a massage table and can therefore also be offered on the go. Here you will find the most important tips on equipment, hygiene and optimal procedure when waxing on-the-go.
For the waxing treatment, you need a foldable and easy to transport massage table. Your equipment should also include a multi socket and a magnifying glass. A high-quality clip-on lamp provides a good light on the table when working mobile. For a hygienic pad, you can either bring towel or a two meter long piece of paper roll, which can then be folded up and disposed of in the garbage.
What are the challenges?
Depending on where you offer your waxing service, finding a parking space can be a challenge, especially in a big city. Therefore, it is important to check the parking options in advance. In rural areas, this is typically not a problem. You can often park right outside the customer’s house.
Preparation is everything, especially during the first months. Keeping a checklist can help not to forget any products. You can also prepare questions to inquire in advance whether additional products may be interesting for a customer.
What comes next, once I finish the waxing treatment?
After waxing, the heater should be turned off first so that the waxes can cool down and become firm. This is relatively quick. Before leaving the customer, you should remove any traces of wax on the floor with a few drops of PINK Wax Solvent.
How do I calculate my prices?
In the PINK Full Body Waxing Manual you will find spreadsheets for the respective skin areas with average treatment prices. These can serve as helpful guidelines for orientation – of course with the relevant local price deviations. With mobile waxing services, flat rates for travel are also charged. For longer journeys, the outward and return journeys must also be factored in as working hours.
Enjoy your mobile waxing!
Mobile waxing comes with its challenges but it can be very rewarding. Those who require more flexible working hours or live in the suburbs with less demand for beauty treatments can benefit from it greatly.
Many more practical waxing tips straight from the studio can be found in our Waxing Manuals and in the Depiladora’s Secrets Facebook Group.
