How to get unstuck
It’s completely normal to get stuck. As you practice, you’ll get better at controlling the paste
and knowing when to switch to a fresh piece of paste or transition on another tool. Here’s a few
tried and true ways to get yourself out of sticky situations:
Use the cloth strips.
If you can't flick the wax off using your hand or applicator, lay your cloth strip over the sticky paste and rip WITH the direction of hair growth.
Use the tips of your applicator/fingers when scooping.
Your paste is more likely to get stuck if you are using the pads of your fingers. Your wrist should be very elevated. As soon as you drop your wrist, start using the pads of your fingers.
Use less pressure when scooping.
Too much pressure and the paste is spread too thin and will be difficult to flick off. As the
wax gets warmer, less pressure is needed.
Lengthen your flick.
If your flick is too short, your paste won’t have a chance to detach from the skin. Try
flicking your sugar paste in 3 inch sections.
Pop it into the fridge 15 minutes before sugaring.
If you are in a hot environment, this will help cool the paste down and last longer.
Use some colder paste and go over the same area that’s stuck.
This fresh piece of paste should firm up the rest of the paste.
Go corner to corner and flick.
Use the corners to flick the paste off FAST.
Your skin might be too hot.
Make sure you’re not sugaring after you’ve worked out, after hanging out in the sun, or after
a hot shower. Your skin will be too warm.
