Brazilian Wax . . . Which One?

There are a few design styles which tend to be more popular rather than having the traditional 1/2 leg and bikini. The most common is the Brazilian Wax which involves removing your pubic hair. I will go into further detail below:

Hollywood Waxing:

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

Brazillian Waxing:

This is where all hair from the labia, perineum and anus is being removed. In other words, from all your essential elements (underneath) and in-between your behind! Some may be more familiar with the term Hollywood Waxing or XXX.

A “landing strip” of hair is on the mons pubis (the top of your pubic bone). This is usually a strip of hair (ie: a rectangular shape). Some clients will prefer the traditional triangle shape. On special occasions such as your wedding, some have chosen the love heart shape. Either way, let your Esthetician know so they can prepare before hand.

It is easier to work your way from a regular bikini wax to a Brazillian 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:

French waxing (known as a landing strip &/or a partial Brazillian wax) leaves a vertical strip of pubic hair. 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), estheticians and MOST 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.
