But you can avoid some of these issues if you first apply wax against the direction of hair growth, and then with the direction of hair growth in the same stroke working quickly. Wax will fully surround the hair follicle on all sides, allowing hairs (even fine ones) to be removed easier, while reducing the amount of breakage. Simply put, because more hair is removed and not broken, you will find you're hair-free longer.
How To BenefitUnless you’ve really mastered this technique, I wouldn’t recommend it on the eyebrows because you might end up taking off hair that you hadn’t intended. That of course, can ruin the entire brow shape.
Waxing hair in the bikini area? You can also use this application method, but make sure to use hard wax which is perfect for coarse hair and doesn’t require a strip.
For facial waxing I always recommend cream wax (compare prices) because it’s gentle to the skin, and beats honey wax because it’s easier to work with and less sticky. Using this back and forth motion is also a lot more workable with the cream.
