WHAT IS WAXING AT HOME?
Waxing at home is safe, simple, and easy when done right and when following the proper process. When waxing at home, it’s even more important to follow proper pre and post care techniques, and follow the instructions specified on your respective warmer and waxing products. Just make sure to be careful and not knock anything over!
Portability and efficiency were our priority when designing our Roll-On Waxing Kit. This kit is perfect for any professional or self waxing user who values an easy waxing process for use on large areas.
If you’re just getting started in the world of waxing, our Starter Soft Wax Kit is exactly what you need to thrive. This kit is ideal for students or for soft wax aficionados who are looking to really tailor services to their clients’ preferences, skincare needs, and preferred soft wax type.
Our Starsoft Microbeads Hard Wax kit is just the thing clients with extremely sensitive skin need to make sure their waxing experience is gentle, and most of all, effective. This hypoallergenic kit is full of neurosensory properties to ensure that skin is left moisturized and protected from breakouts and ingrown hairs.
Though we recommend seeing your esthetician for the best results with our products, Starpil still has your back for at-home waxing.
STEP 1 - PRE WAXING
The start to any successful easy waxing at home process is to properly prepare your skin for waxing! Make sure to exfoliate the night before your service, and prior to your wax apply Starpil’s
Pre-Wax Gel to the area. Once your skin is thoroughly exfoliated, moisturized, and hydrated, you’re ready to wax!
STEP 2 - WAX + WARMER
Let your wax warmer heat your wax up to the appropriate temperature as specified on your system, and make sure you’re using a warmer made for your preferred wax type. However, if you’re just starting out with Starpil Blue Top Wax Warmer, don’t worry! This versatile warmer is perfect for both hard and soft wax. Once your wax has reached the appropriate consistency, you’re in business. Dip your spatula into your wax, and make sure to clean off any excess wax on the rim. Using your spatula, apply your wax to the application area at a 90 degree angle in the direction of hair growth. If you’re using one of our roll-on applicators, apply the roll-on directly to the application area at a 90 degree angle.
If you’re using hard wax, allow your wax to cool, before removing the wax parallel to the skin and in the opposite direction of hair growth. Pull parallel to the skin (and not upwards!) to minimize pulling on the skin.
If you’re using soft wax, smooth your waxing strips over your wax before removing parallel to the skin and in the opposite direction of hair growth. Like hard wax, pull parallel to the skin and not upwards to minimize pulling on the skin.
STEP 3 - POST WAXING CARE
You’ve done it! You’ve waxed at home! However, your job isn’t done just yet. We’ve saved the best for last - your post wax care, that is! Following your wax, apply your Post Wax Oil and Post Wax Lotion to the freshly waxed area to soothe any irritation, minimize redness, and guard against breakouts and ingrown hairs.
There’s no single best way to wax at home , but if you find the best products for waxing at home , you know waxing really is as easy as 1, 2, 3! You’re now well on your way to becoming an at home pro.
Waxing at home is an easy process when following the proper instruction and procedure as outlined on your respective Starpil waxes and warmer. Make sure to practice both pre and post wax care, and make sure you’ve done your research to make sure you’re using a wax best suited for you and your needs.
Is it safe to wax at home?
Waxing at home is safe! As long as you follow the proper waxing process and follow all instructions according to your wax warmer and preferred wax type, you’ll be all set for a successful waxing experience. Additionally, make sure you’re practicing the proper pre and post wax care techniques.
Is it better to shave or wax at home?
Shaving is a popular technique for at home hair removal, but is ineffective for long term results. Plus, it often leaves behind painful razor burn or ingrown hairs. At home waxing, when done properly and when following proper instructions, is a good technique for when looking for hair removal with more long term results.
Can I Brazilian wax myself at home?
Giving yourself a full body wax at home is no easy process - but it is possible to do an at-home Brazilian! To give yourself a proper Brazilian wax at home, use Starpil’s Standard Waxing Kit to make sure you’ve got your full waxing needs completely covered.
Which wax is best for beginners?
Most student waxers or beginners just starting out use one of our soft waxes, though you can learn using any wax! Starpil’s roll on waxes are also perfect for beginners who want to wax at home quickly and efficiently.

What to apply after waxing?
After a waxing session, make sure to apply Starpil’s Post Wax Gel and Post Wax Lotion to ease irritation and inflammation, soothe redness, and guard against breakouts and ingrown hairs.
How can I do painless waxing at home?
No waxing session is going to be completely painless, but with the proper pre and post waxing care regimen, you can ease the amount of pain you experience during an at home waxing service.
Which wax is best at home?
Though any wax can be used at home if done so properly, Starpil recommends using our roll on waxes, or one of our waxing kits geared toward smaller service volumes and beginner use.
