A Brazilian doesn’t only refer to the treatment you get done on your hair. In fact, it’s more synonymous with bikini waxing. Now, if you’re not brave enough to go completely bare down under, there are different types of bikini waxes to suit your pain threshold. Just the thought of being ripped and tugged with hot wax is scary and finding the perfect therapist that not only understands your needs, but is readily available at your convenience, is not always easy. But with Booksy, finding a therapist and making that booking will help you breathe a sigh of relief, so you have more energy to face your fears!

What is bikini wax?

It’s seems kinda obvious what a bikini wax entails. But did you know there are different types and methods of bikini waxing? These treatments include the basic wax, triangle, the landing strip, the deep bikini wax and of course, the all-feared full Brazilian or Hollywood wax. Depending on your preference and pain threshold, you can either opt for hot wax or wax strips. It may be wise to ask your therapist to do a patch test to figure out which one works best for you. What to expect during bikini wax? We’re not going to ignore the (painful) tugging and screeching that everyone warns you about, so yes, there’s that. But like anything else in life, the more you do it, the better it becomes. A bikini wax typically refers to removal of the hair outside of the panty line. But if you’re comfortable with the pain and want more hair removed, you can ask your therapist. Depending on how much hair you want removed, the therapist will ask you to either remove your underwear or move it out of the way. Throughout the bikini wax, your therapist may ask you to pull certain areas of your skin, to help ease the pain when they’re ripping the wax off. The tighter the skin is pulled, the less pain you feel.  If you feel uncomfortable at any point, speak up. How to get the best bikini wax? Prepping yourself and your skin before a bikini wax will ensure the best results. If you can, take a warm bath or shower just before your appointment for hygiene reasons of course and to soften the skin. It’s always best to gently exfoliate the area a night before to remove dead skin build up. If you really need to, you can take mild pain medication about 20 minutes before. But remember, the key is to RELAX and know that it will get better the more you do it. Avoid shaving in between your appointments. It can get difficult but fighting off that urge will be so worth it in the long run! Can hair be too long for bikini wax? Therapist recommend growing out hair to just under once centimetre long. So, that’s roughly around ten to fourteen weeks. This is a comfortable length for the wax to grab onto it. If hair is longer than this, you run the risk of it either breaking under or above the skin’s surface. Waxing also hurts a more if the hair is longer and thicker. Now, if your hair is longer than the recommended length, don’t stress. Your therapist will trim it with scissors before your treatment.  How do I make an appointment for a bikini wax?
