warm vs hot wax
With warm wax the wax is spread over the area after which a paper strip is pressed over it to adhere to both the wax and hairs, and then pulled off removing the hairs in that area from the root.
Because it is applied and removed straight away, the warm wax can be used quickly and efficiently over large areas such as the legs, arms, etc.
Warm wax is spread over the hair
adhering both to the hairs and skin, so often this method of waxing will wax off the very top layer of the skin too, providing an exfoliating effect to the skin along with the hair removal for extra smooth results.
Warmed to a slightly higher temperature, hot wax is a much thicker wax to allow it to set hard. It is applied to the skin, allowed to cool and set, and then pulled directly off without the use of a paper strip.
As it takes a moment for hot wax to cool and set, this kind of wax is usually used over smaller areas for more efficient treatments times. Areas on the face like the upper lip as well as the pubic area are most commonly treated with hot wax.
Because hot wax sets around each of the hairs, it makes for a better grip and removal of thicker hairs that may be too stubborn to remove by warm wax. Hairs on the pubic area and sometimes underarms which grow thicker than other body hair and can also be more sensitive are best removed with the hot wax for a cleaner and smoother result. The hot wax is also more effective at removing shorter hairs for this same reason of being able to adhere to the hair more for a better grip.
