What's a Brazilian Wax?

What's the difference between a Brazilian and Hollywood wax?


Question: What's the difference between a Brazilian and Hollywood wax?

Answer: The terms have been used interchangeably, but there are differences. Brazilian waxes often leave a small strip, triangle or oval shape piece of hair in the front, while taking all the hair in between all the way to the back by your bum. Waxing Hollywood style removes all of the hair, front all the way to the back. 

Names are often created at salons and spas so that you know how much you're paying, and they book the right amount of time while having an idea of much hair you're looking to remove. Just waxing the bikini line is much less work and doesn't require as much time or product as waxing all of the hair. So the price points vary for these different styles. 

While there are a lot of names or styles for bikini waxes, most people determine for themselves how much hair they want left or removed. You don’t need to be locked into any one kind of bikini wax, just go with your personal preference.

I recommend working your way from a regular bikini wax, to a Brazilian and then remove it all. Waxing your bikini area bald from the get-go may be more than you bargained for. Removing hair from the root gets easier over time.
