Brazilian Wax vs Bikini Wax

As women, we tweeze, shave, wax and pluck any hair we can find on our body. We spend countless hours in the bathroom tirelessly trying to achieve silky smooth skin. Once it's bikini season, we freak out trying to make sure our bikini line is hair free. Every girl knows, shaving your private parts is like doing yoga in the shower...with razor blades.

So why doesn’t everyone pick waxing over shaving. Bikini waxes, are more efficient, last longer, and leave your skin smoother.

Bikini Waxing

Bikini Wax Vs. Brazilian Wax

What is a Bikini Wax?

As the name implies, a bikini wax is the removal of hair along the bikini line. A bikini wax ensures that when you’re in your bikini bottom, you do not have to worry about any hair outside of the lines of your bikini. This typical bikini wax is simple, relatively, fast.


What is a Full Bikini Wax?


A full bikini wax removes the hair along the bikini line but also goes further into the the frontal part of your bikini area. Based on your preference you can get as much hair as you want removed from the frontal part of your bikini area with a full bikini wax.

 

What is a Brazilian Wax?

A Brazilian Wax is the next step from the full bikini wax. A Brazilian Wax removes all the hair from the frontal part of your bikini area and then goes all the way back.  Every bit of hair is waxed off during a Brazilian wax: hair on the front, back, sides, and in between. Removing all the hair in your bikini area. This wax is perfect for those who like the nude feel and do not want any hair whatsoever down there.

  • Brazilian removes all of your hair
  • Lasts Longer that a regular bikini wax
  • Avoid razor burn

It is truly based on personal preference whether you want a Brazilian wax or standard bikini wax, waxing your bikini area is better than shaving it if you want the area to stay bare for longer. 



What Does a Bikini Wax Look Like?

A bikini wax looks different depending on what style of bikini wax you get. When you get a basic bikini wax, you are only waxing around the panty line. When you get a Full Bikini wax, you are waxing deeper into the panty line and when you get a Brazilian you are waxing virtually all the hair off of your bikini area.


Why should you wax your bikini area instead of shaving?

Bikini Wax vs Shaving


When you wax, you are getting hair straight from the roots, when you shave, you merely are slicing the hair above the skin, so when you shave, the hair grows back much faster and sometimes even thicker. When you wax, hair is being pulled from the roots making it grow back much slower and thinner. Waxing will give your skin a much smoother feel down there.

Brazilian Wax

How Long Does a Brazilian Wax last? 

Just as everything else in this world, everyone is different. In general, you can expect the hair to begin to grow back in about 2-4 weeks. Most people who get there Bikini routinely waxed go in once every 3 to 5 weeks. It just depends on the person.


Does a Brazilian Wax hurt?


Pain is beauty, when it comes to waxing this saying holds true. However the pain from a Brazilian wax is super quick and far from extreme pain. The people who wax you are professionals and they know what they are doing.  If you trust the people you wax with, you will be fine. Almost all waxing centers use soothing oil post waxing to soothe the pain. Once you wax more then once, the pain becomes less and less as you get used to it the less it will hurt. 


Where can I get a Brazilian Wax?

You can get a Brazilian Wax at your nearest Professional Waxing Center. Make sure you go to a certified waxing center that will provide you with a clean and safe waxing experience. Checking local reviews before you book an appointment is an absolute must! Overall if it is not something you have done before it is worth doing at least once to try it out.
