10 Types of Bikini Waxing: Explained for the Shy at Heart
Considering a bikini wax for the first time can lead to plenty of uncomfortable questions. While many waxing salons do provide menus with plenty of options to choose from, asking for more details about each type of bikini wax can definitely be embarrassing. But getting a bikini wax does not have to be awkward or confusing. That is why Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in Clinton Twp. has put together this list of the 10 most common types of bikini waxes so you can avoid those awkward questions and feel confident about your next trip to the med spa.
Classic Bikini Wax
The classic bikini wax is a great option for those who have never waxed before. It focuses only on removing hair that is visible around a bathing suit. Typically, this type of waxing will remove hair within a four finger width of the bikini line and roughly a two finger width from the top of the bikini area.
Mini Brazilian Bikini Wax
This type of waxing may require steady breathing. The mini Brazilian bikini wax will entirely remove all hair from the front of the bikini area, but does not remove any hair from the back or underneath. Those who opt for this type of waxing can anticipate lying on their backs with legs bent and feet together until the last wax strip is removed.
Full Brazilian Bikini Wax
The full Brazilian bikini wax is one of the most common waxing requests. This type of waxing will remove everything from the entire pubic area. This will include the front of the bikini area, sides, labia, and butt. Recipients can expect to be on all fours, occasionally lifting one leg at a time. While these positions may feel a bit awkward at first, just keep in mind that this is nothing new to your professional waxer.
Sphinx Bikini Waxing
Some waxing salons call it a Sphinx Wax instead of the Brazilian bikini wax. But there is no difference between the two. Both types of waxing will remove all hair from all pubic areas, and the removal process will most likely be the same.
French Bikini Wax
Occasionally called a “landing strip”, the French bikini wax removes most of the hair from the pubic area, it leaves hair in both the labia (middle) and back. While a single strip of hair is typical of this style, the shape of the hair in front is entirely up to the recipient.
The Bermuda Triangle
One more name for the Brazilian bikini wax is the Bermuda triangle. Like the typical Brazilian wax, this type of waxing will also remove all hair from front to back, including the labia and butt. The distinctive difference in this bikini wax is right in the name. A small triangle of hair will be left in the front bikini area.
The Desert Island
The desert island is a common pairing with the Brazilian bikini wax. This waxing will leave only a small triangle of hair at the upper portion of the pubic bone. The triangle will usually be a bit smaller than the Bermuda triangle and it will have a “floating” appearance.
The Love Heart Bikini Wax
The Love Heart is another common pairing with the Brazilian bikini wax. In this case the remaining pubic hair will be shaped into a small heart in the top of upper portion of the front bikini area.
The Hollywood Bikini Wax
One more common name for the full Brazilian bikini wax is the Hollywood. In the same manner, this waxing will remove all hair from the front, sides, back, and everywhere in between. The hair removal process will remain the same here as well.
Butt Strip Waxing
The butt strip bikini wax will remove all hair from the inner buttocks. It’s as simple as that. Just keep in mind that this waxing can sometimes require more than one strip of wax!
