What Is The Average Full Body Wax Price?

What is the average full body wax cost?

When you opened up your salon, you likely had an endless list of things to figure out, one of which included your full body wax price. It may seem pretty easy to decide on basic prices for your bikini wax, upper lip wax, eyebrow wax, etc., but the full body wax price tends to be a little bit more complicated.

First, you ultimately have to decide what your full body wax will include. Taking into account the prices of those individual waxes and deciding how much of a discount you may offer for the package deal may not be so straightforward.

Deciding which waxes are most popular among your clientele would be pretty important, too, since that is what will entice your clients to choose a full body wax in the first place. 

Will you do a full-body wax package for women only? 

What about a full-body wax package for men?

Will you allow waxing substitutions for your package?

Our dear esthies, we're here to help make your life a little bit easier. We'll help you make this decision with some knowledge under your belt. 

What Does A Full Body Wax Include?

A full body wax can include either a bikini or Brazilian wax, arm and/or leg wax, upper lip and eyebrow, stomach, and back. Each salon can arrange their full-body wax differently, and, often, salons even leave room for some substitutions to meet the individual client's needs. 

Are you creating a full-body wax package for a male or female client? This is a significant factor that will impact your choices for the package. 

For example, in regards to male clients, most men will come in for chest, stomach, and/or back waxing when looking into a full-body package. Men may even want to see a manzilian in their complete full-body wax package.

Full Body Wax Process

A few clients may be in the habit of making separate appointments for multiple waxes. For instance, one week, they may come in for their routine bikini wax, but because of their growth pattern, they may be in for their eyebrow wax the following week. 

To increase their interest in a full body wax, tell them about how much more convenient it would be to get all their waxing done in one appointment! Plus, mention how nice they will feel freshly waxed from head to toe rather than hairy in some areas and hairless in others. 

Since the hair all over our bodies has different hair growth patterns, it's essential to tell clients that all the hair about to be waxed should be around ¼ in long for a full-body wax. 

How you decide to complete a full-body waxing is your discretion. Some estheticians may start from bikini/Brazilian to legs and work up. Some may start from top to bottom. Others may even organize the waxing by the type of wax- do all areas with hard wax first and then move to sites using soft wax. 

Whichever route you choose, let your clients in on the process. They might be a little worried about discomfort from waxing everything all at once, so assurance is the best policy!

Pro product tip: Why not have a post-waxing lotion on hand for ultra-sensitive skin ideal for calming, hydrating, and protecting freshly waxed skin? Starsoft Intensive Post-Wax Cream has neurosensory actives designed to reduce any pain, redness, and irritation for your clients whose skin is very reactive to waxing. 

A cream like this is a perfect reassurance to clients worried about excessive pain and discomfort from multiple waxings in one shot! 

Best Starpil Waxes For Full Body Wax

You've planned out which services you are including with your full-body wax, you have your procedure laid out, and you are stocked with a soothing and relieving post-wax cream to ease your client's skin as you perform the full body wax.

What are you missing?

The most vital part of the waxing service...a plan on which waxes you will use for each part of the body you plan to wax! 

More than likely, you don't want to use a "one size fits all" wax for everything you do. 

 

Starpil Waxing Products

Aside from having your choice between hard wax and soft wax, Starpil provides multiple types of hard and soft wax to meet the needs of various skin types. They have precisely designed waxes useful for individual parts of the body and different skin types. 

How much more perfect could they get?  

Soft Wax

Many estheticians love using soft wax for facial hair waxing and large areas like legs, arms, backs, and chests. For this, we have our most popular pink and blue soft wax. Soft waxes are also excellent for our "speedsters" out there who are trying to get their full-body wax done in record time. 

Starpil soft waxes

Blue soft wax is amazingly effective at picking up even the tiniest hairs for normal skin types, but for our clients with sensitive skin, pink soft wax is the way to go! 

Since our pink wax as reduced adherence to the skin, it is much gentler for those with more reactive skin. Let's take it even a step further for our clients whose skin is extremely sensitive and who have allergies.

For hypersensitive skin, there's nothing like Starsoft Soft Strip Wax! With no dyes, perfumes, and rosin-free, your clients will have an easy waxing experience with this hypoallergenic formula. 

Hard Wax

Hard wax is fantastic for sensitive skin and waxing areas that are naturally more sensitive...ahem, the Brazilian/Manzilian/Bikini area. It is also effective for underarms. 

 

 

Starpil hard waxes

 

As an expert, you might even decide to use a hard wax for areas mentioned above in the soft wax category because of how gentle hard wax is. Potentially, you might even choose to use hard wax for your entire full-body package. 

For example, traditionally, you may use soft wax for facial waxing. But Starpil's hard waxes are designed to reduce redness and irritation on the face, which can help prevent after waxing breakouts. If you have a client prone to breakouts, this may be a superior alternative. 

Similar to soft wax, the Pink Film Wax is geared for fantastic hair pull while being more sensitive during the pull, if you know what I mean. Waxing the bikini area with Pink Film Wax is most beneficial.

For other areas of the body during a full body waxing, the Blue Film Wax may be most helpful. Because of its polymer blend design, Blue Film Wax can be used in wider strips to cover a greater area with each application. 

Alright, esthie, you are just about ready to put that full-body wax package on your salon service list. Now, what is the going rate you should use?

How Much Is A Full Body Wax?

Depending upon which services you have included in your full-body wax, the full-body wax price, on average, can begin at around $150 (give or take) and increase from there. If you have a limited full-body wax, like only a Brazilian, leg waxing, and lip waxing, you could be looking at somewhere between $100-$150. 

A complete full-body wax price from the neck down for a male client will often begin over $150, considering the higher quantity of hair removed from each large area. 

When choosing a price for your salon, consider what the total cost would be if you added up all the individual service prices. A client will be more likely to go the route of a full-body wax if it is more cost-efficient for them. Don't forget to factor in your location and the type of salon you have. 

Higher-end salons and spas, especially ones at or affiliated with resorts, will always have a higher cost, where locally-owned smaller salons will be closer to the prices listed above. 

In Summary

Amped and ready to go, you are now more prepared and knowledgeable about your full-body waxing service! 

With ample ideas of what to include in your full-body waxing service, from a limited to complete package, and a set decision on the process you use to perform the service, you are now fully equipped to add the full body wax to your services list. 

Don't neglect using high-quality waxes (Starpil's waxes...cough, cough) and preparing for which waxes will cause the least amount of discomfort in sensitive areas or for sensitive skin. Also, be ready with Starsoft Intensive Post Wax Cream to apply once you finish waxing each location to provide a soothing experience for your clients. 

The more comfortable and happy they are, the more they will continue to return and recommend your salon to their friends and family, all contributing to business growth. 

The average full-body wax price begins at $150 and goes up from there, depending upon the services you choose to include. Male full body waxing (even for a limited full body wax) will on average exceed $150. Use these averages and your personal service prices to determine the best full body wax price for your clientele.
