Introducing the International Day of Waxing

Introducing the International Day of Waxing

Parissa is officially inviting you to an empowering new body-positive holiday! International Day of Waxing is a playful day meant to encourage a fun & healthy attitude toward hair removal. This is your day to share your favourite waxing techniques, or even try one for the first time.

Whether you love your razor or simply want to freshen up your current at-home hair removal routine, join us as we celebrate all things waxing!

What does the day represent?

International Day of Waxing aims to inspire you to find a skin-friendly approach to smooth skin.  Removing body hair is a choice and IDoWAX honours that!

Bare legs, bikini line, or face, weeks of smooth results and less irritation are just some of the benefits of waxing. At-home waxing products such as the Parissa Hot Wax or Parissa Organic Sugar Wax are made from non-toxic ingredients for a gentle yet effective approach to hair removal.  

Like any routine, practice makes perfect. Find what works best for you on International Day of Waxing. From sugar wax to strips, there is a wax for each hair and skin type: from delicate areas such as bikini and face to all-over body waxing. Waxing is meant to be celebrated!

The evolution of waxing

Waxing is one of the earliest forms of hair removal. Embraced as both a beauty trend and for hygiene, it has been as a go-to method for smooth skin for centuries. In fact, the first use of sugar wax dates back to Ancient Egypt. Inspired by Cleopatra, women are said to have used pumice stones and beeswax as an early form of waxing. In Ancient Rome, removing all body hair was a symbol of cleanliness. Later, during the Elizabethan Era, women endeavoured to create the look of a high hairline by removing everything from facial hair to eyebrows. By the early 1900’s, smooth underarms were in style due to the fashion of sleeveless dresses.

A new approach to hair removal 

More inclusive than ever, waxing is now an empowering part of many contemporary self-care routines. Fashion and gender norms originally shaped many early hair removal trends i.e., when a shortage of silk for stockings during WWII meant women finally dared to go barelegged.  

Thankfully, however, we’ve now entered a new era of body-hair positivity. The fitness craze of the 1980’s signaled a definitive shift in the waxing industry, and both men and women began to participate in modern hair removal. Brazilian and bikini waxing in the 1990’s also created space for more choice in a hair-free aesthetic. Whether it’s for cultural, sporting, health reasons or simply because you like the look of smooth skin, waxing is for everyone.
