Your typical bikini wax removes much less hair compared to the other two. It basically involves the removal of hair around your panty line - the sides and top of your thighs as well as below your navel - leaving you with an inverted triangle shape of hair. This type of wax is great before heading off on a beach holiday for a hair-free bikini line when you slip on your swimsuit, or just to stay tidy down there. You can request your aesthetician to go a bit deeper on the sides if you would like some more taken off. When to get it: A bikini wax is ideal when you are looking for a cleanup, or if you’re a first timer and want to gradually move onto the more painful, full-fledged Brazilian wax. You don’t need to take your underwear off for this type of wax.
This is the most common type of bikini wax around the world and also the most severe. The difference between bikini and brazilian wax is that the latter involves removal of hair from the entire pubic region, including your bum fuzz. While, in bikini wax, hair in the pubic area is not waxed. So naturally, it is the most painful type of waxing and requires you to spread your legs wide, or to bend and raise your knees to your head so your waxer can reach your most private of parts. If you’re a seasoned bikini waxer who is well accustomed to the experience and pain, then we recommended this for you. If you’re trying it for the first time, don’t worry so much, the aesthetician is a professional who has serviced hundreds of women before so there’s no need to feel shy or awkward. Just get ready for all the pain before the pleasure of smooth skin. When to get it: If you want to get rid of all the hair down there, the Brazilian wax should be your preferred option. You need to have your underwear off throughout the procedure.
French bikini wax is similar to the Brazilian wax, except the hair between your buttocks is left to stay. A French bikini wax will typically leave behind a small, vertical strip of hair so you will be bare down there, but not beyond the anus.It has all the advantages of the Brazilian Wax, except in the derriere department, of course, which means you won’t need to stretch and spread your legs as much.This method is great for those who want to go bare but not as extreme as with a full-fledged Brazilian. It’s perfect for a first timer as you can experience the treatment without having to go all the way up. When to get it: If you’re planning on wearing a thong, or want to be clean and bare down there minus the terror of getting your butt waxed. You will need to have your underwear off for most part of the procedure but not during the entire time.
