Waxing is a type of hair removal that eliminates hair by pulling it out from the root. This involves laying down warm wax on the skin in the direction of the hair growth and pulling the wax against the hair growth, effectively pulling the hair out from the root. With repeated waxes over time, the follicle becomes weakened allowing hair to grow back slower, finer, sparser, and minimizes ingrowns as compared to shaving. Maybelle Beauty Bar uses elastic wax that is suitable for sensitive skin and all skin types. Our wax does not pull or lift the skin, it adheres only to the hair. The wax we use is hypoallergenic, vegan, and cruelty free!
