WAXING FAQ’S

What’s the difference between a bikini wax & a thong bikini wax?
A bikini wax will remove only the hair that is visible outside a normal pair of bikini bottoms or full briefs. This includes only pubic hair that grows below the crease at the top of the leg on the front and inner thighs.
A thong bikini wax will remove all of the hair that would be visible outside a high cut thong bikini or g-string pants as well as a strip along the top of the pubic bone. A thong bikini wax therefore involves the removal of hair from a larger area including some hair inside the crease at the top of the leg, inner thigh and between the lower part of bottom cheeks. For a thong bikini wax you will need to be wearing thong or g-string style underwear during treatment or you can remove your underwear. Disposable g-string pants will be provided if required.

What’s the difference between a Hollywood and a Brazilian Wax?
A Hollywood wax includes removal of all pubic hair from the tops of the thighs and the pubic bone to the inner and outer labia and in between the bottom cheeks as far back as the coccyx bone at the base of the spine.
A Brazilian wax includes all of the above but leaves your choice of either a small strip or triangle at the top on the pubic bone. (You may have also heard this referred to as the ‘landing strip’)

Do I have to take my underwear off for treatment?
In order to ensure that you get the best results from your intimate waxing treatments; both Hollywood and Brazilian waxes are carried out without underwear. If you are having an intimate wax for the first time, please try not to feel uncomfortable about this. This is our profession, we are absolutely accustomed to working in this way and be assured that we are looking at hair and not anatomy.

How long should the hair be for waxing?
For legs and arms the shortest hairs should be no less than 4mm long for a satisfactory result. On bikini and underarm areas the hair can be as short as 1mm for removal with the SINE hot wax.

How long should I wait between waxes?
Eyebrows, lip & chin; 3-4 weeks. Legs, arms & bikini; 4-6 weeks.
