DIFFERENT TYPES OF STARPIL WAX WARMERS

Starpil professional wax warmers come in four different categories, with unique subsets of each. 

  • Hard Wax Warmers
  • Soft Wax Warmers
  • Starter Warmers
  • Roll-On Wax Warmers  
  • Each wax pot is made from high-quality materials and comes in different sizes to meet the needs of solo professionals and full salons with multiple wax technicians. Let’s explore each of these wax warmer types.

    HARD WAX WARMERS

    At Starpil, we know our customers’ unique needs, so our hard wax warmers are available in 4oz, 1lb, 5lb, and 10lb variations to scale your business to its full potential. 

    For instance, the 4oz Hard Wax Facial Wax Warmer is perfect for eyebrow, nose hair, sideburns, and upper lip waxing. The 1lb Standard Hard Wax Warmer is perfect for 1-5 body waxing services, and the Starpil 5lb and 10lb wax warmers are best if you serve clients all day, every day.

    The Hard Wax Warmer Lineup 

    1. Facial Wax Warmer (4oz) 

    This Starpil wax warmer is ideal for eyebrow enthusiasts to perform perfect eyebrow, nose hair, sideburn, and upper lip waxing services. 

    Though compact, this electric wax heater is just as powerful as our larger hard wax warmers. It’s made of heat-protecting ABS materials on the outside and internal heating coils on the inside to provide rapid and even meltdowns. It has a lockable lid to keep your wax clean and at your desired temperature.

     2. Premium Standard Hard Wax Warmer (1lb)

     3. Heavy Duty Double Hard Wax Warmer

     4. Professional Large Hard Wax Warmer 

    Dubbed "The Esthie Bestie," this warmer is the perfect step-up for your ever-growing business. It conveniently warms up to 5lb (2.2kg) hard wax beads or tablets for any range of facial and full-body waxing services. 

    Though bigger, it’s still as easy to use as smaller wax warmers with a quick-touch on/off switch and adjustable temperature dial that ranges from 45°C to 105°C to give you total control over your wax consistency.

    For a limited time, this warmer also comes with a complimentary 2.2lb bag of either Starpil Blue Film Hard Wax, Pink Film Hard Wax, or Black Film Hard Wax beads.

    5. Premium Extra-Large Hard Wax Warmer (10lb)

    If you have back-to-back full body waxing services, this is the wax pot for you. It’s made with heat-conducting aluminum in alpine white and designed to function as easily as our smaller warmers. 

    Additionally, just like our 5lb warmer, it includes a free 2.2lb bag of either Starpil Blue Film Hard Wax, Pink Film Hard Wax, or Black Film Hard Wax beads.

    HYBRID WARMERS

    Hybrid wax warmers by Starpil

    In addition to our hard and soft wax warmers, Starpil also offers hybrid warmers that can handle both formulas. These Starter Warmers are made for the esthies who provide fewer waxing services among their many other modalities, or who might just be starting out and want to practice with both hard and soft wax. 

    These wax pots come in two sizes and are both excellent for at-home use. 

    1. 17oz Starter Wax Warmer

    Among esthies, this wax pot is excellent for brow clean-ups, lip waxes or the occasional body-waxing service. It’s also great for full-time waxers who like to keep a specialty wax warming on the side.

    This versatile wax warmer can hold both 14oz (400ml) and 17oz (500ml) of hard wax beads or tablets, as well as soft wax cans. 

    1. 27oz Tall Starter Wax Warmer

    This warmer is made with the same advanced technology as other Starpil professional wax warmers, but crafted for the beauty-school student or pro who doesn’t need to keep large amounts of wax warming throughout the day. 

    This warmer can hold up to 27oz of either loose hard wax beans or tablets or one 27oz (800ml only) can of soft wax.

    ROLL-ON WAX WARMERS

    Roll-on wax warmers - Starpil

     Starpil Roll-On Wax Warmers were patented in 1991, and cut down waxing time by up to 50%. This system is also cordless, making it ideal for salon, on-the-go, or at-home use. It holds a single 3.8oz Starpil Roll-On Wax Cartridge, so it’s great for steering clear of cross-contamination between clients. 

    Our single, double, and triple roll-on wax warmers are made of durable ABS materials on the outside to insulate heat safely and to keep your wax cartridge warmed for up to 30-minutes of use. 

    Each system also has a transparent window for you to check-in on your wax's malleability, and to see how much you have left to work with. Its curved body provides a comfortable hold and its cordless abilities let you take this wax machine on the go. 

    Our dual and triple roll-on wax systems are ideal for the busy solo waxer or for a pro who makes house calls and is always in need of a portable warmer. 

    These cordless warmers also come with two additional charging cords for a hygienic way to maneuver around clients with a clean and even delivery of soft wax.

    • Plugin and turn on your Roll-On Wax Warmer.
    • Insert a Starpil Roll-On Wax Cartridge.

    WAX WARMER SAFETY

    Wax warmers are electrical devices. You need to take all the necessary safety precautions in working with wax warmers. 

    How to Clean a Starpil Wax Warmer

    To clean a Starpil wax warmer, heat your wax pot and wipe with dry paper towels. Make sure to use caution or wear gloves, as your warmer will get hot. 

    Use your favorite degreaser to clean both the inside and outside of your hard wax warmer (you can also use Starpil’s Post Wax-Oil!). Finish by wiping down your warmer with 70% isopropyl alcohol. 

    How do you Heat Starpil Wax?

    When using Starpil hard wax beads or tablets, only use one of our professional hard wax warmers for the best results and meltdown. Follow the complete instructions that are included with your hard wax warmer regarding how much wax to measure and how to properly heat your quantity of wax. Never microwave or use alternative methods to heat your Starpil wax.

    To heat your Starpil soft wax, follow the instructions on your can and soft wax warmer to insert  your soft wax can directly into your soft wax warmer. Heat your wax to the appropriate temperature specified by your formula’s instructions for the best results.  Never microwave or use alternative methods to heat your soft wax. 

    Can I Use Soft Wax in a Hard Wax Warmer?

    Never use soft wax in a hard wax warmer. Since Starpil soft wax is heated by putting the entire tin into your warmer, putting this wax into the wrong warmer type can result in injury, burns, or the breaking of your hard wax warmer. Only use your hard wax warmer for loose hard wax beads.

    In addition to using the correct warmer type for your wax, here are some more basics to follow:

    • Starpil wax warmers are designed to be used by professionals. 
    • Never immerse your wax warmer or other electrical appliances in water.
    • Always unplug your wax warmer from the power supply when not in use, prior to use, when setting down, and before cleaning. 
    • The device must be kept on a stable surface at all times. 
    • Ensure the voltage for the electrical source and the wax warmer are compatible (1 10-120 Volts US). 
    • Always keep out of reach of children and pets. 
    • Never touch the device while it’s on. 
    • If the appliance is malfunctioning, contact Starpil’s excellent customer
    • service team for help at +1 (305) 907-0756.
    • Never use in a bathroom or near any source of water or other liquids. 
    • Keep your wax warmer out of direct sunlight and ultraviolet radiation.
    • Remember to unplug the wax warmer before removing wax cans or aluminum tins from the device.
