What costs should I consider before incorporating Phd™ Safewax into my business?


Cost per treatment is one of the most important factors to consider when introducing a new brand to your business. One Phd™ Safewax honey wax tube will allow you to perform 3.5 half leg wax treatments. Below, you can see the average cost to perform a half leg wax treatment:

One half leg wax treatment = average of 90p

Phd™ Safewax cotton strips – 8 strips = 20p

Phd™ Safewax original honey wax = 43p per service

Phd™ Safewax  original applicator = 27p


When considering pricing, you should carry out in-depth research to ensure you are charging your clients correctly. You should research the average price of waxing treatments in your area, as well as how much your direct competitors are charging for their waxing services.


It is best to focus your promotional activity around seasonal events, holidays and weddings. You will find that the demand for waxing treatments will increase during the summer, meaning you may need to promote the service more during winter. Take a look at some of our offer ideas below:

Loyalty cards: Offering client’s a discount after a certain amount of treatments ensures they continue to return to your salon and increases client loyalty.

Holiday/occasion packages: You could create a waxing package that will offer a variety of waxing treatments for a set price. For example, a holiday package could include leg, underarm and bikini waxing for one set price.

Discount on quieter days: Why not offer waxing treatments at a discounted price on your salon’s quietest day of trade? This will help draw in custom and may even help you gain new clients.

How can I make the most of my Phd™ Safewax equipment?

Phd Safewax heater

The Phd™ Safewax heater system houses all of the essential products needed to perform the waxing treatment in one compact workstation. As well as effectively heating the Phd™ Safewax wax tubes, this comprehensive system also includes a number of compartments to hold essential products and supplies, allowing you to have easy access to everything needed to offer the waxing service. It is also compact enough for mobile therapists to use, ensuring the innovative Phd™ Safewax treatment can be offered by both salon based therapists and mobile waxologists.

This thermostatically controlled system requires little maintenance however, we advise businesses to arrange regular Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) to ensure the unit is safe to use. The Phd™ Safewax heater unit is also very easy to clean. We recommend using a small amount of post treatment lotion on a cotton pad to wipe the machine as using harsh chemicals or alcohol based products may strip the glossy exterior of the heater. Due to the use of wax tubes, the heater is easy to keep clean and spills and drips are a rare occurrence.

Do Phd™ Safewax offer marketing support?


With posters, window vinyl and a host of leaflets available, you will be able to easily and effectively advertise your Phd™ Safewax service to your clients. The helpful consumer leaflets will also allow you to inform your clients on the Phd™ Safewax treatment, eliminating any concerns they may have if they are new to waxing or new to the brand itself.

Social media

We also recommend promoting your Phd™ Safewax services via social media, a great way to market and advertise your business for free. You can:

Post offers: Let your clients and their friends know about any special discounts they can make the most of. When adding a new service to your treatment menu, you may wish to offer an introductory price to promote interest.

Competitions: This is a great way to get clients involved and will create interest around your business. Interactivity with your clients is a great way to earn customer loyalty.

Encourage reviews: If a client is happy with their waxing experience, why not ask them to post a review on your business’ social media page? Many clients will research salons and therapists when seeking a new treatment so having positive reviews on your page will make you more attractive and is sure to increase your clientele.
