WHAT IS A BRAZILIAN WAX
As an esthetician I get this question a lot from some of my new clients. Since Brazilian waxing is now popular, I already know the real question they are asking. What they really want to know is what areas I will be waxing. I often get many new first time Brazilian waxing clients and I do get excited for them, but many times they come in without a very clear understanding of the service. Brazilian wax is used rather liberally when it comes to waxing the bikini area. I understand all the confusion floating around when it comes to Brazilian waxing since article after article tries to define what a Brazilian wax is and many times it leaves the reader even more confused. I will first define what a Brazilian wax really is and try to end the confusion once and for all. Why is Brazilian added in everything waxing down there related? In order to have the name Brazilian included in any type of waxing procedure there are a few things that must happen first. First and foremost the labia and perineum wax get waxed too in order to utilize Brazilian in the service.
Authentic Brazilian Wax | Brazilian Wax
We often hear Brazilian Wax thrown around in conversations, magazine, and TV shows. Many times people don't really understand what a Brazilian wax actually is. There are many modifications and names of this hair removal procedure, but a Brazilian Wax is simply removing all pubic hair from front to back and everything in between.
Hollywood | Hollywood Brazilian Wax | Hollywood Wax
Another name interchanged with Brazilian wax in Hollywood Brazilian, Hollywood wax, or simply Hollywood. A Brazilian wax and Hollywood is the same exact thing. You might also hear full Brazilian thrown in the mix too, but a full Brazilian is the equivalent of a Brazilian Wax or Hollywood. Adding "Full" does absolutely nothing.
Full-Bush Brazilian Wax
One popular modified Brazilian is the full bush Brazilian wax. The full bush Brazilian removes all hair from the labia, perineum, anus, bikini line, and leaves the top alone, therefore, giving the title "Full Bush."
Playboy Brazilian Wax | Playboy
The playboy Brazilian Wax is basically a Brazilian Wax, but leaves a thin "landing strip" on the mons pubis. The playboy Brazilian wax should not be confused with a French wax which is closer to a basic bikini wax not a Brazilian wax. In my next article, I will be clearing up the confusion of what is a bikini wax so stay tuned.
There are many people who interchange bikini wax and Brazilian wax , but in reality there are big differences and some pictures show what a Brazilian wax is. If all the names confuse you don't worry about it! People will continue to mix these terms no matter how hard we try to correct them. What I recommend is when going to an esthetician, clearly state what areas you need waxing. And please remember that your butt is not your anus so please be specific. I have read many articles of horror stories of women not really knowing what they are asking for. Don't be shy to ask question and clear any confusion or doubts you may have before the waxing begins . In the end, the goal of a waxing specialist is to provide top quality waxing services to everyone who walks through our doors. Providing the right information to your clients is what keeps them coming back.
