Brazilian Wax vs. Bikini Wax: Which Wax Wins?
Who's sick of shaving? Ready to throw out the razor? Tired of twisting yourself into a pretzel to reach and remove unwanted hair...down there? Join us as we take a quick glance back at one of our favorite Sex and the City scenes to demonstrate how easy (and necessary) it is opt for a bikini wax instead!
If you're one of the millions of women who sat down with a bucket of popcorn and your besties to watch the movie a few years back, you may recall a scene involving Miranda and her shocking...lack of personal landscaping. While Samantha compared Miranda's exposed unwanted hair to a national forest, Miranda argued that she had forgotten to wax and was not expecting to be in a bathing suit. Our thoughts? Lame excuse Miranda! A quick 30 minute bikini wax appointment will keep you from growing (and showing) your own national forest this summer.
So how do you decide between a bikini wax and a Brazilian wax?
Answering a few simple questions will help you choose!
How much unwanted hair do you want to remove?
While the bikini wax typically removes hair that can be seen when you're wearing a bathing suit, the Brazilian wax removes it all. The esthetician will usually give you the option to either leave what's known a landing strip, or be completely bare.
Which waxing process will you feel more comfortable with?
The Brazilian wax will require you to remove all clothing from the waist down, while the technician will give you disposable panties to wear for a bikini wax. While it can sound a little intimidating to a waxing beginner, it's a very speedy and professional process.
What can you expect when maintaining a Brazilian or bikini wax?
In order to maintain an ideal waxing routine, you'll need to avoid shaving and tweezing, and allow enough time for proper hair growth (1/4 inch long) in between appointments. This will help you to achieve optimal results with each wax!
Something to consider is that eventually (usually 4-6 weeks), the hair grows back. If you're looking for a more permanent solution, you may want to consider laser hair removal.
