Brazilian Wax . . . Which One?



With female waxing, there are a few styles which involves the removal pubic hair which are:

Hollywood Waxing (also known as 100% bare down there). The pubic hair from the whole intimate area, including labia, perineum and anus as well as from the mons pubic. Putting it another way, naked as the day you were born!

Brazilian Waxing is where all hair from the labia, perineum and anus is being removed. To put it another way, from your essential elements (underneath) and in-between your behind! A “landing strip” of hair is left on the mons pubis (the top of your pubic bone). This is usually a strip of hair (ie: a rectangular shape) but some customers prefer a triangle.

It is easier to work your way from a regular bikini wax to a Brazilian and then into removing it all with a Hollywood. Waxing your bikini area bald from the start may be more than you bargained for.

French waxing (also known as a landing strip &/or a partial Brazillian wax) leaves a vertical strip of pubic hair in the front. This is 2 or 3 finger widths (3 inches or 7.6cm) long and about (1.5 inches or 4cm wide) above the vulva. Hair around the anus area and labia may be removed. To create the “landing strip” (a line of hair), practitioners and clients prefer either lying face up or lying face down.

More often, hard wax is used. Strip wax can work as effectively, depending on which brand you choose.

Removing hair from the root gets easier over time.
