Even if you have mastered every DIY bikini line hair removal method available (yes, we’ve tried at-home waxing and every bikini trimmer in existence), there are times when it’s preferable to leave things in the hands of experts.
It can be challenging to know exactly which kind of bikini wax to ask for, whether you’re thinking about getting one for the first time or simply want to try out some new ‘styles’.
Although most salons have menus, the directions might not be as thorough as you’d like… And let’s face it, if you’re a novice, asking for more information can feel downright awkward. Furthermore, it can be challenging to know what “style” to request. As opposed to getting a haircut, you can’t just bring a picture of your favourite celebrity as an example.
Keep in mind that you shouldn’t feel uncomfortable asking questions at first. Keep in mind that the person performing your wax has literally seen it all before, and they probably value your questions more than disappointing you with the results of your wax.
The common types of waxes
- Traditional Bikini Wax
The traditional bikini wax is your best option if you want to focus only on the areas that are visible from a bathing suit. It removes hair up to the width of four fingers from the bikini line and two fingers from the top of the bikini area. This is what we refer to as “a great option for beginners.”
2.Mini Male Brazilian Wax
A mini Brazilian entails completely shaving off the hair from the front and leaving it bare. You should prepare to lay on your back with your legs bent and your feet together, mimicking the butterfly position when getting a mini Brazilian. From that point on, until the job is finished, it is just constant breathing and waiting for wax strips.
- Brazilian in full
If you’re fairly familiar with the phrase, it’s probably because this is unquestionably the most popular choice. It covers everything in the front, including the bikini line and labia, all the way to the butt strip.
- Hollywood wax or Sphinx wax
It can be challenging to keep up with all of these new terms, but don’t worry. Both of these terms essentially refer to the same thing. A Brazilian wax, also referred to as a Sphinx wax or Hollywood wax, completely removes all hair from the front and back of the bikini area, according to Sadrolashrafi.
- French Wax
Doe claims that this is also occasionally referred to as a “French bikini,” and it’s a great choice “for the person who doesn’t want a peek-a-boo situation with their pubic hair.”
- South Full Brazilian Brazilian? Check. You might as well throw in your legs as well while you’re at it. Yes, you can now get a one-time treatment so that you won’t have to worry about developing razor bumps on your bits or nicking your shins in the shower.
- Buttocks in full
Hair grows. And if you don’t like the hair that occasionally grows on your cheeks, just ask for a full set of buttocks for a completely hairless situation.
