During your first visit, your esthetician will provide an overview of the whole process so you know what to expect from start to finish. Our estheticians are extremely professional and well-trained. There is no need to feel embarrassed or nervous, and every effort will be made to make you feel as comfortable as if you were at home.
Our estheticians use hard wax, which is applied as a warm, thick liquid. As it cools, the wax hardens and is removed without the use of a muslin strip. Unlike soft wax, hard wax does not leave behind a sticky or waxy residue. Hard wax is the preferred wax for removing hair from delicate areas such as your bikini, under arms, and facial areas.
After the waxing is complete, and all hairs have been removed, a small amount of baby powder is applied to reduce any redness or swelling in the treated area. Baby powder has a natural cooling property which helps to eliminate any irritation that waxing may have caused.
Before arriving for a bikini wax, we recommend that our clients trim the hair they wish to remove, to around ” in length. The shorter length makes the removal process more efficient (and less painful than waxing longer hairs), but clients should ensure that they don’t trim too short, otherwise the wax may not be able to grab the hairs.
There are several Bikini Wax styling options available including:
Regular Bikini Wax – This waxing style focuses on the removal of the hairs that are exposed when wearing a bikini. You can expect the hairs along the inside of your thighs and between your belly button and the top of your bikini area to be fully removed. This is an ideal wax for beginners or if you are just looking to slightly trim your bikini area.
The Full Bikini Wax – This wax will take things a step further than the Regular Bikini Wax by remove slightly more hair at the sides. You will end up with a more definitive shape, usually a triangular or rectangular shape. Typically, the remaining hair is also trimmed down so that the hair is shorter.
The French Bikini Wax – The French Wax eliminates all hair at the side of your bikini area, leaving only a strip of hair down the center, as big or small as you would like. The French bikini wax is often called the Partial Brazilian.
