How is Nova Wax different from other hard waxes?
Nova Wax is a one of a kind hard wax formula, developed with the finest polymers, essential oils, and natural ingredients. This hybrid wax combines the properties of the highest quality waxes in the world into one formula.
Why is Nova Wax more expensive than other waxes on the market?
Nova has a higher price than other waxes on the market because it combines the best natural ingredients to effectively remove unwanted hair in the most comfortable way for the client. Nova was designed to the exact specifications of Liz Lugo, one of the most renown wax experts in the world and her passion for waxing innovation helped drive its creation.
Why does the wax keep breaking?
Wax breaking during the removal process is typically caused by two main reasons. Either the wax application is too thin or the wax was left on the skin for too long. To avoid the wax breaking during the application process we recommend applying a thicker layer of wax to the skin to get the rhythm or groove of the wax's behavior creating a lip for grip to remove the strip. The density of the wax will determine the sensitivity of the wax during the removal process. The wax should rest on the skin for approximately 30-40 seconds prior to the removal. If your wax is still wet after 30-40 seconds, please allow an additional 30 seconds until the wax has dried.
Why is the wax not removing any hairs?
Fundamental mistakes during the heating, application and removal process of the wax can lead to hairs being left behind. To avoid hairs being left behind when waxing, we recommend ensuring that the temperature on your warmer is at the highest setting until the wax has reached a full liquid form. Once the wax has reached a full liquid form you must lower the temperature on your warmer to a lower setting and allow for the wax to cool off. Proceed to wait an approximate 15-20 minutes until the wax has reached a honey-like consistency. Once the wax has reached a honey-like consistency we recommend applying a thicker layer of wax to the skin to get the rhythm or groove of the wax's behavior creating a lip for grip to remove the strip. The density of the wax will determine the sensitivity of the wax during the removal process. The wax should rest on the skin for approximately 30-40 seconds prior to the removal. If your wax is still wet after 30-40 seconds, please allow an additional 30 seconds until the wax has dried.
Why is the wax too stretchy?
Fundamental mistakes during the heating process can cause your wax to heat at the wrong temperature setting. Heating your wax at the wrong temperature setting can lead to your wax being too stretchy. Typically, when the wax solution is too flexible the wax temperature is too cold. We recommend turning up the temperature on your professional wax warmer until the wax has reached a honey-like consistency.
Can I use the microwave or stove to melt the wax?
Every microwave has different wattage causing it to be extremely dangerous as it can lead to severe burns in your skin. Stoves will cause the wax to overheat and burn therefore, we only recommend heating up the wax using a professional wax warmer in order to control the temperature setting.
Can I use any warmer with Nova Wax?
You may use any warmer with adjustable temperature settings as Nova Wax is temperature sensitive.
