Where and when to get a Brazilian bikini wax

Unlike other types of bikini waxing, a Brazilian bikini wax needs to done at a professional salon. Finding one through word of mouth is best. Ask your friends about their own experiences of bikini waxing: a good technician will be quick and efficient. The best time to for bikini waxing is when you are able to wear loose fitting clothes afterwards. Don't get it done just before a beach holiday, when you'll be wearing a thong. Allow 24 hours for any swelling or tenderness to go away.

The treatment

First, pubic hair will be trimmed short or you may be asked to do this yourself before you arrive. The actual bikini waxing begins with the technician applying warm wax to the pubic hair using a wooden stick. Cloth strips are then placed over the wax. When the wax is hardened the strips are pulled away from the skin, removing pubic hair. This will probably hurt. How much varies but the whole thing should be over within around 15 to 30 minutes. It's a good idea to try to relax during the bikini waxing. Skin will then be relaxed and flat, allowing the wax to get deep into the hair follicles.

Full Brazilian bikini wax

If you've opted for a full Brazilian bikini wax, all hair will be removed. Otherwise, a small strip will be left. Make sure you tell the technician exactly what you want as not every salon uses the same definitions.


When it's over, go home and put on loose fitting clothes and underwear. The salon should give you some soothing lotion to take home with you and you can also apply Calamine lotion or aloe vera to help with any itching. If you wish, you can also apply a hair inhibitor to try to lessen hair re-growth. A Brazilian bikini wax should last from four to six weeks.
