Calypso is an emerald green, glitter infused, premium hard wax from our Pro Series collection. Calypso is a polymer blend of natural rosin derivatives, waxes, and synthetic materials. Our Pro Series is comparable to (insert Major Brand)'s pink or blue film polymer blend formulations, albeit much more elastic. Calypso is ideal for the entire body; fine and coarse hair alike. That's right, this wax can do it all! We've worked on increasing the tensile strength of this wax so it doesn't break as often as (insert Major Brand), even on loose skin. Since it can be removed quickly after applying, this wax is great for "strip & rip" speed or power waxers. Beginners note: The Pro Series isn't as forgiving as the Signature Series.
Calypso was one of the nymph daughters of Atlas and was one of the most beautiful of all immortal goddesses. She made her home on the island of Ogygia. This island has been referred to as both a palace and a cave and was covered in vines, trees, animals, and streams. Odysseus was shipwrecked and ended up on Calypso’s island who she nursed back to health. She fell deeply in love with Odysseus and held him captive in Ogygia for seven years before finally releasing him back to his wife, Penelope. Inspired by Calypso’s desire, we’ve named this beautiful Emerald wax. Be careful around our Calypso Wax, once she weaves her vines around you (or your clients hair), she’ll never let go!
Heat up the wax until the consistency is creamy such as honey or molasses (normally takes about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of warmer).
Test temperature of wax on the inside of your wrist.
Always use a new spatula for each application -NO DOUBLE DIPPING! Using the edge of a wax spatula, apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the hair growth using smooth and firm pressure.
Wait a couple of seconds for the wax to cool. Stretch the skin tight during removal. Remove wax in one quick, swift motion parallel to the surface of the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
Repeat as needed.
Note: Normally only one application is needed for each area. If necessary, a cleanup strip should remove any "stragglers" left behind. Rarely will you need to use a third application over the same area if you're using the wax properly. We have a variety of online training or email email@example.com for more help.

Love it so much I am never going back to the old wax I use to use. This wax not only has a beautiful color to it. It works perfect on your skin, grabs all hair and does not cause a lot of bruising for those who are sensitive. Amazingly this formula of wax is the BEST !
Love love love this wax!! It dries super fast and saves me so much time!!
Love this stuff! Gets up everything when applied properly. There is a slight learning curve but once you get the hang of it you are good to go!
This is the BEST wax I have ever used in my 5+ years of professional full body waxing! Gentle on skin but strong on the roots with no hair breakage! Seriously cannot say enough good things about all Mermaid Waxes that I have tried.
Love this company and their wax, clients always comment on the glitter! Fast shipping, great product, been using this wax in my salon for over a year and still love it as much as I did the first time it tried it!
Very pleased with the pro series. I also recommend to mix both together! It is by far the most stringy wax I’ve ever worked with but it can do wonders on all arenas. I’ve found that it’s great for underarms and corse facial hair, as I dislike softwax all together. Pro series for the win!
I love the new Medusa and Calypso wax! Amazing for brazilian waxing!!
Love this wax!!
I love it
In general, love these waxes! I do feel like I get a bit more breakage in a strip with the calypso, but overall still use it.
Very smooth! I absolutely love the color and how it shines! Very effective when it comes to removing all of the hair in one strip!
