is some confusion as to exactly what the Brazilian is and isn't. Technically
speaking there are four types of bikini waxes
The Bikini Wax - hair is removed from outside the
The Brazilian Bikini - leaves a vertical
strip in front (landing strip), two to three fingers in width just
above the vaginal area. Hair is not removed from the labia. Hair is
removed from the tush. Hair may be removed from the buttock or peri-anal
The Playboy Bikini Wax - all hair
is removed from the labia, all hair is removed from the tush, including
the peri-anal area, and only a very narrow strip is left in the front.
Named after playboy magazine because that's what you see on the models
The Sphinx (or the Full Bikini
Wax) - It's all taken off. Everywhere. Everything. Bald.

What happens when you get a Brazilian Bikini Wax? Expect
to be waxed to the max if you visit a salon or spa for a Brazilian treatment.
A disposable thong may be provided, but most likely, you'll be in the
buff. First the hair is snipped with scissors so the wax can reach the
follicles. Then, using a wooden stick, a technician places warm wax
on the area a little bit at a time. As with regular bikini wax, cloth
strips are placed over the warm wax and it is pulled away from the skin.
If there are any stray hairs after waxing, the technician may also tweeze
the area. The key to allowing wax to penetrate into the follicles (and
provide the closest possible wax) is to relax. And many women claim
the treatment is not nearly as painful as it sounds.
After bikini waxing or shaving, there may be a possibility of little bumps, the beginning
of a 5 o'clock shadow, and the area may itch when it starts to grow
back. Getting waxed is also like getting a haircut. You need a few days
to get used to it. Today there are some wonderful microwavable wax products that you can buy on-line that
you can use to do your wax in your own home.
Advice: Relax. Remember to breathe. Hold skin taut. Avoid waxing
during the time of the month when everything feels tender. Fear is your
