Bikini Wax vs. Brazilian Wax

August 31, 2018

If you are going to get your first wax… down there… you may be wondering which is the right one for you. What is the difference in a Bikini Wax vs. Brazilian Wax? We are taking the guess work out of it and answering the questions you may be too shy to ask.

What is a standard bikini wax?

This is a wax geared to women who just want to clean up outside the lines of a bathing suit or underwear. Depending on your preferences, you may request a little hair taken off the top and a little further in on the sides. Communicate with your waxer to determine how far in you want to go.

What is a Brazilian Wax?

This gained popularity in the mid-eighties. Getting a Brazilian means removing ALL the hair. From front to back, side to side and everything in between. Don’t want to go completely bald? You can request to leave a small “landing strip” or thin strip of hair across the top. Or you may even prefer to leave a small v on the top. Just make sure you let your esthetician know beforehand.

Whether you want a bikini wax or a Brazilian wax, our wax experts can help you get the perfect wax and shape that you want. The key is communication. Make sure you explain your wants before the session begins. Your esthetician is a professional. Never be embarrassed or shy about asking questions. Your satisfaction is their main goal and that means knowing what you want beforehand.

Remember that no matter which you prefer, you must have at least a quarter of an inch of growth for the wax to grab onto the hair. If you have further questions, call us at (801) 449-0527 to speak to a wax expert. Click here if you are ready to book your appointment online today.
