Intimate waxing is no longer the taboo subject it previously once was. Although waxing has been around for quite some time now - the norm for waxing was typically legs and underarms! However, intimate waxing has become the trend everyone is following for the last few years! As you may or may not know, there are various bikini waxes that exist. They are known as the: Basic Bikini, Extended Bikini, Brazilian, The Ibiza and Hollywood. But what is the difference between each wax you're asking?
We will explain each individual style of wax as well as how long you should expect each wax to last. For intimate waxing, we use Perron Rigot hot wax to make your waxing experience as quick and as pain free as possible!
This is the perfect kind of wax for a first time waxer and a general tidy up. This is simply a tidy up around the sides of your bikini area. You do not need to remove your underwear for a basic bikini wax. The hair is removed from what is outside of the pant line. As this is a basic wax it should take no more than ten to fifteen minutes and is pretty painless.
Like the basic bikini, you need not remove your underwear for this wax. This is very similar to a basic, however the extended bikini removes hair a little further in from the bikini line, the top of the bikini and a little of the hair from underneath. Typically, this kind of wax should last around 15-20 minutes and is relatively pain free also!
The Ibiza is the perfect wax for your holiday - summer or winter! It is simply an extended bikini wax, which also removed all the hair from the buttocks. The average time for an Ibiza wax varies from client to client, however it should last no longer than twenty to thirty minutes.
A Brazilian wax is slightly more daring than an extended bikini wax. This is where all the hair is removed from both the bikini and buttocks, with a landing strip of hair left. This is a great wax to build yourself up to a Hollywood wax. This kind of wax should last no longer than thirty minutes. It is a little more painful than a basic and extended bikini, however it is certainly not intolerable. A painkiller an hour before your appointment is always an option if you feel this is something that would help ease the pain! You will be required to take your underwear off for a Brazilian, so be prepared!
A Hollywood wax is everything off. That's right - zero hair left on your bikini at all! All hair from the bikini and buttocks is removed completely. It goes without saying that this type of wax will require you to remove your underwear. The average time for a Hollywood is around twenty to thirty minutes - depending on your hair. If you are a regular bikini waxer, the hair will be much finer and therefore much easier to come out. If you are a first time waxer you can expect your appointment to last a little longer. The more frequent you wax, the quicker and easier the hair can be removed at your next appointment.
The type of bikini wax you choose is completely personal and up to you - everyone is different and likes different styles and trends. We hope this blog has helped you differentiate between each kind of wax. Even if you are a regular waxer, it's never too late to change things up!
