What is a Brazilian Waxing?
A Brazilian removes hair from the entire pubic area to the butt and everywhere in between. You may leave a strip or triangle of hair. You will be asked what you prefer. All hair can easily be removed at no extra charge.
How long should hair be?
Grow it out... The hair needs to be a quarter inch long. This will help the wax adhere to your hair and will extend the lifetime of your wax. If you shaved, two or three weeks of growth from your last shave is preferred for maximum results. One week of growth is not sufficient. Shaving between waxes can irritate the skin and minimizes the benefits of waxing.
Does waxing hurt?
Any hair removal from the root will be a little uncomfortable. A warm shower before your appointment opens the pores, The whole process is not half as painful as expected, but of course it is natural to be anxious. A good Brazilian or bikini wax can be worth a little pain.
