Introduced in New York by seven Brazilian sisters, this cool way of waxing has now conquered the world. It’s a lot different form a regular bikini wax, as it involves removing lots of hair – the front, back and everything in between. And that famous landing strip is no longer necessary with a Brazilian wax, as many women opt for every hair being removed.

A good waxing should happen fast. This means, of course, less discomfort and pain for you. You only need about a quarter-inch of hair for the wax to grab onto, your waxer may also trim your pubic hair to the correct length.

Talcum powder will be applied, as this will keep hot wax from sticking to skin.

Usually, a Brazilian wax takes about 15 – 30 minutes. Waxing starts in the front and moves toward the back. You’ll have to move around in all sorts of weird and maybe intimate or odd positions in order for the waxer to do her job. You may be asked to help hold skin taut.

Because the cosmetician needs to be sure all hair is being properly removed, the procedure will very much resemble to a typical visit to your gynecologist’s office, so it shouldn’t be more embarrassing than that.

The hair will grow back in about three weeks, before it can successfully waxed it needs to have a certain length and don’t worry if you experience red bumps or ingrown hairs, it’s just a downside of this waxing technique.

Make sure you are provided with a paper thong, clean sheets and towels – hygiene is very important. After a quick wax, you’ll feel sexy and more feminine than ever – are you brave enough?!
