The Complete Guide to Buying a Waxing Kit
When building a professional waxing kit, we might think that we have it all figured out. But, for those just getting into the waxing business, or if it’s been a while since you bought a kit, here are some top tips to consider before diving into investing in a new one. This article (just like a Starpil Waxing Kit) will set you up with the whole shebang on which products to focus on, how you should choose the best wax warmer kit for your business, and answer the question where can I buy a waxing kit? And remember, even if you’re not planning on going with Starpil, these suggestions will make a world of difference when considering how to build a kit from any brand so that it gives the most back to you, your clients, and your waxing business.
WHAT DOES YOUR VOLUME LOOK LIKE?
First things first, knowing the volume of business you have can help you choose the best wax warmer kit to suit your needs. The volume of business you have is determined on how many services you provide a day. If you’re just starting out, chances are, you won’t necessarily have a high service volume. For long-time waxers, you’ll know if your new station or kit refresh is meant to serve an exponentially larger client volume or tackle the overflow from a blooming business. Either way, both esthie types can choose kits for the volume they want to have, which means going for the largest wax pot and products offered. This is a great “room-to-grow” attitude and can serve you well in the long run.

SKIN, HAIR AND SERVICE TYPES
If you’re new to the business, you’ll need to set yourself up for the clients you want to have, and if you’re adding a new station or refreshing your kit, think about which products you need to diversify your kit or to tailor it to each skin, hair and service type. To figure this out, ask yourself which hair, skin, and service types do or will you hope to cater to most?
Your professional waxing kit should contain products that can serve a diverse set of needs when starting out. Multi-tasking products will be your best friends until you can invest your profits back into your business and diversify your kit. For those already needing to diversify your kit, pinpointing your clients’ top needs will be an excellent way to go. Your new kit (or kits) should include products that focus on supporting the skin first and foremost; then, they need to contain formulas that tend to the hair and work well with the wax you’re going to go with.

If you are choosing to go with a Starpil waxing kit, we carry an array of kit sizes styles to meet your various needs. We have kits that feature small to large and hard and soft wax warmers that come with either soft or hard wax. We also offer products from our top-selling pre and post-wax care collections. Each full professional waxing kit we carry also comes with the accessories you need for a complete service. Since these curated kits feature some of our best-selling products, they might sell out quickly. If this happens, we recommend talking to a Starpil Pro Account Mangager so that you’re always up-to-date on product availability.
Here’s a quick cheat-sheet on how to start choosing which products should go into your professional waxing kit.
WHAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Good brands might have good products, but great brands offer remarkable accessibility and outstanding customer support. You should be selecting the products you retail and use like you’re choosing a business partner type of relationship. Consider the following when selecting the products/brands if you want to get the most bang for your buck.
- Your wax products should come with a positive relationship and brand support.
- Choose brands with a proven record of catering to salon professionals.
- Choose brands that offer loyalty or rewards programs like Starpil Esthie Bucks.
- Does the brand offer wholesale pricing?
- Do they distribute the products themselves?
Your brands and vendors should have an excellent reputation for working with salon professionals because they know how to maximize their products for your most significant ROI. If you’re not making money, they’re not making money, so it’s in their best interest to support your business any way they can! They can also do this by providing reward and wholesale programs that help you save on the products you already buy.
No matter what, check out reviews and see what your colleagues are using. They’ll let you know what they love about the products they use and the customer perks they receive from their favorite brands.
