What Is The Average Full Body Wax Price?
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. (For crazy helpful insight into the world of manzilian waxing when deciding to offer it as a service, click on the link!)
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!

From what's included in a full body wax to the benefits and drawbacks thereof, they'll have everything they need to understand if the service is right for them.
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.
