Everything you need to know about Brazilian Waxing

Updated: Sep 21, 2019

It's been almost three decades since Brazilian wax was introduced to the United States by seven Brazilian born sisters, yet it still remains the most popular hair removal method in the United States!

1. What is a Brazilian wax?

Brazilian waxes differ from regular bikini waxes because hair is removed in the front, back and everything in between.

2. How long does one appointment take?

On average, it takes 20 - 30 minutes. If you have done Brazilian wax in the past, you might want a speedy service; if you are new and want to take your time or are more prone to pain, feel free to talk to your Aesthetician about your concern.

3. How is Brazilian wax done?

The Aesthetician will dip a wooden waxing stick into warm wax and then spread it onto your skin. When the wax has cooled, she will pull the strip off, in the opposite direction of your hair growth, pulling the hairs out by the root. The first time may be the most painful, but frequent visits reduce pain.results last 3 - 4 weeks.

4. How long does my hair need to be for a Brazilian wax appointment?

Your hair needs to be at least 1/4 inch. Anything shorter than that will be too hard for wax to grab onto. So resist your temptation to use a razor 2 weeks prior to coming in.

5. What happens after a Brazilian wax?

You’re left feeling smooth and confident! If you are prone to bumps, redness or ingrown hairs- gently exfoliate the area. Professional ingrown hair product also available.

6. What are some useful tips to keep in mind?

Try to avoid direct sunlight, working out, sauna and the pool for 24 hours to avoid irritation in your most delicate areas.
