Using the Applicator
If the hand method is too hands-on and cloth strips method is too slow, the applicator method will be your best friend.
Use the straight edge of the applicator.
This will give you maximum surface area to sugar.
Check hair growth direction.
Start at the loose ends of the hair and scoop back into the root.
Push the paste across the surface of your body until you have a little lip at the end of your scoop.
Think of it like raking the paste across the hairs.
Flick parallel to the surface area WITH the direction of hair growth.
Imagine brushing eraser crumbs off a table. Keep your hand parallel to your skin and move quickly. You can bruise yourself if you lift the paste up and away from your body.
Keep the paste in front of the card.
If the paste swings up behind the applicator when flicking, fold it back over using your skin or your hand.
For longer scoops, flick and fold over like an accordion.
This will prevent the paste from swinging up behind the applicator and getting stuck.
Mold two-three times to grab more hairs in one flick.
Slowly lift up and mold the applicator over the same piece of sugar.
Go in for detail work.
Use the corners of the applicator to pick up any lingering hairs.
You're killing it. Now, have you tried the hand method?
