Waxing and sugaring are about the same in terms of effectiveness, pain level and methodology. Both of them depilate hair from the skin by grasping the hairs and then are flicked away, taking the hair out from the follicle. The difference is the substance that is used.
There are a two basically different kinds of waxes..."strip wax" and "hard wax". The first is applied with a spatula, a strip of cloth is laid over the wax and pressed into the wax to bond it, then the fabric is pulled quickly back along the skin in the opposite direction of hair growth. This wax can stick to the skin a bit, so most estheticians apply a light coating of powder to prevent that. It's a good method for large, non-sensitive areas like legs or arms.
The second, hard wax, is applied with a spatula and allowed to harden a bit and is grasped and pulled back along the skin. No strip of fabric is used. This allows exact placement of the product, since you won't be pressing cloth down onto it and causing it to "ooze" or move a bit. Also, this wax is applied over a light coating of oil to prevent it from sticking to the skin at all. It will still grasp the hairs, because as it cools, it shrinks a bit around the hair shafts and grasps it very well. This is a good wax for precision placement, sensitive areas such as faces or the bikini area or underarms, and is excellent for coarse hair.
