Hi, I'm Summer Vasilas. Today, I'm going to give you some guidelines for waxing coarse hair. Typically you're going to find this coarse hair on your legs, under arms or bikini line. Today, I'm going to focus on the coarse hair on your legs. Let's get started. So, the first thing you want to do is you want to start by prepping with some powder. And you can use a talc powder, such as a baby powder or a talc free powder such as a cornstarch powder. Make sure that powder is rubbed in really well. Now, the key to waxing coarse hair, is you want to break it up into small sections, and you really want to focus on the direction of the hair growth. So, we're going to start at the ankle, and apply in a nice, thin layer. And you want to take your strip and again, you want to remove in small sections as well. So, I'm going to break this section into three different sections. And really give some good pressure to your strip and hold your strip as close to that wax application, versus holding out here. This is going to give you more power in your pull to pull those hairs out. It will be sensitive, so a little pressure afterwards always feels good. And you're going to continue on, again, pressure, holding your strip nice and close. And one more, look at how nice that came out. And we're going to continue up her leg. So, I'm going to fold my strip, closing that wax down. And then, I'm going to use this clean side of my strip, place that down next time. And use this part as my pull. Again, we're going to keep into small sections here. I'm really focusing on the direction of that hair growth. You're always applying with the hair growth and pulling against the hair growth. You can take your whole palm, or you can use your fingers. You can see the skin moving underneath with that pressure. Notice that I'm only using half the strip when I'm removing. That's the amount that I'm putting under my strip. You want to have good, quick follow through. Don't pull slow, that's going to cause you more pain. After you're done, don't forget to put some soothing oil on and massage it in.
