DIFFERENT TYPES OF STARPIL WAX WARMERS

Starpil professional wax warmers come in four different categories. 

  1. Hard Wax Warmers
  2. Soft Wax Warmers
  3. Starter Warmers
  4. 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 Warmer is perfect for eyebrow, nose hair, sideburns, and upper lip waxing. The 1lb Hard Wax Warmer is perfect for 1-5 body waxing services. The Starpil 5lb and 10lb wax warmers are best if you serve clients all day, every day.
