Waxing is an excellent way to deal with most hair removal. Waxing leaves the area smoother than shaving does because it pulls the hair out from below the top layer of skin. This is the easiest and most convenient way to go about removing hair from large areas.
With hot waxing, a thin layer of heated wax is applied to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. The hair becomes embedded in the wax as it cools. The wax is then pulled off quickly in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it. Cold waxes work similarly. Strips are pre-coated with wax or a sugar-based substance and pressed onto the skin in the direction of the hair growth and pulled off in the opposite direction.
Brazilian and Hollywood Bikini Waxing
A Brazilian bikini wax removes the hair from the entire pubic region, except for a small patch just above the vaginal area. A Hollywood bikini wax removes the hair from the entire pubic region. Many men and women request these waxing treatments because it gives a clean, close wax and the freedom to wear even the most revealing swimwear and lingerie. You'll have a smooth, bump-free bikini area that looks fabulous in a bathing suit or au natural.
First the hair is snipped with scissors so the wax can reach the follicles. Then, using a wooden stick, a technician places warm wax on the area a little bit at a time. As with a regular bikini wax, cloth strips are placed over the hot wax and, after it hardens, pulled away from the skin.
Traditional Brazilian and Hollywood waxes includes the labia and the area that reaches into the buttocks. If there are stray hairs after waxing, the technician may also tweeze the area. The key to allowing wax to penetrate into the follicles (and provide the closest possible wax) is to relax. And many women claim the treatment is not nearly as painful as it sounds.
