Brazilian bikini waxes were introduced to the US in 1987 by the J Sisters, 7 Brazilian-born sisters. The Brazilian remains a popular hair removal method in the United States.
Intimate waxing or (Brazilian waxes) differ from regular bikini waxes because hair is removed in the front, back and everything in between. Sometimes a “landing strip” is left in the front, but many clients opt for the “Hollywood Wax,” where everything is removed.
At All About Skin, our technicians usually recommend a basic bikini wax for waxing newbies because they tend to be less painful and allow you to dip your toe in the water, so to speak. But if you’re ready to jump all in and get an intimate waxing, here’s what to expect.
All our intimate waxing occur in a private room with a door, and takes between 15 and 30 minutes. You’ll be left alone to remove everything from the waist down and lie on a table covered in clean paper or sheets. It is possible that you may be provided with a paper thong and if not, you can ask for one.
The paper thong may make you feel more comfortable, but with a Brazilian, your modesty is going to be tested. Our female technician is going to see everything, so you may choose to forego the paper thong. We like to think getting a Brazilian can’t be any more embarrassing than a typical visit to your gynecologist’s office. Our technicians have seen it all before and have been doing it for over 20 years.
