How to Brazilian Wax

If you are one of the many women who enjoys shedding inhibitions during the summer to sport some of the most revealing bikinis, them surely you have wondered about how to Brazilian wax.  There are a couple of different ways of going about a Brazilian wax; enlisting the services of a professional salon or spa, and tackling the task at home with the help of a friend.  While some may have this kind of relationship with their friends, most women opt for the salon or spa.  Here are a few things to expect.

First and foremost, when you call the spa to ask how to Brazilian wax, they will most likely as you for some key information.  They will want to know if you have ever had a Brazilian wax before, and they will also ask you to estimate the length of the hair to be waxed.  Brazilian waxing takes at least ¼ inch of hair in order for the wax to properly adhere to and remove the hair in one fell swoop.  While the procedure is not the most painful thing women experience (hello, child birth?), it is definitely something you want done right the first time around.  Another very important thing to keep in mind, whether they ask you directly or not, is where you will be in your monthly cycle the day of your appointment.  Obviously you do not want to be menstruating when you get a Brazilian wax, but some women are also sensitive in the week leading up to that time, as well.  If you are one of those women, you may want to schedule for another time.

How to Brazilian wax may vary slightly by salon or spa, but as a rule they should provide a private area for undressing and give you a paper thong to wear during the procedure.  The table where the waxing will take place should be covered with clean paper, as well.  A new tub of wax for each patron will ensure a clean, sanitary waxing procedure.  The professional will then work in one small area at a time from the front all the way around to the back until all hair is removed.  If requested, they will leave a small landing strip in the front.

Getting a Brazilian wax is the best way to look your absolute best in the summer.  While you may experience some mild discomfort during the procedure and immediately after, it will last a lot longer than shaving and keep your skin smoother between waxes.
