Not the wax you’ve been looking for?

So you’ve ‘Plucked’ up the courage; you read about it in glossy mag; you’ve chatted with your girlfriends; and your partner is eagerly awaiting your new look. But you leave the salon with the hair you wanted off still in your pants. Fuming.  I strongly feel that if a therapist has an issue with nudity they should not be advertising and taking bookings for Intimate waxing such as a Hollywood. It’s a knickers off job. End of. In fact I’d prefer it if everyone just got their knickers off then they aren’t in the way and I can get a nice line on a basic bikini. But I accept not everyone is as blase about nudity and if you want to preserve your modesty you’re fully entitled to.  However if it’s your therapist that is modest, here is a handy guide to bikini waxing giving you the details of what’s included in each.

The Hollywood

Hoorah for Hollywood!

Hoorah for Hollywood!

When you have a Hollywood Wax ALL pubic hair should be removed from front to back, inside out.  So that’s your butt crack, I do this with my client on all fours. It’s quick, requires no assistance from the client and gives easy access to the area to be waxed. It’s not embarrassing (OK maybe the first time) and over with quickly. I also include the butt cheeks in a Hollywood or any wax where we wax the butt crack. Whether the entire butt is covered in hair or it’s patchy, it’s coming off and I’m not mentioning it or charging extra. After all who wants to be told they have a hairy arse! This won’t be included in all Hollywood’s so read the menu of your therapist.

The hair from the front is also removed and most importantly from underneath. There are plenty of Salons out there that will just take the hair outta your pubic mound and kick you out the door with your ‘Hollywood’. Almost like being booted off the plane over the Atlantic!  How disappointing. The hair should be removed from the inner and outer labia. Inner labia don’t grow hair it just grows inwards from the outer labia. It’s this hair that women tell me has been left by their therapists in the past.

A Brazilian

You've now landed in Brazil!

It’s exactly the same as a Hollywood only with a landing strip. A neat little stripe is fashioned on your pubic mound once ALL hair has been removed from underneath to back and the labia.

La Femme Wax

Porn Star in the back, Hippy in the front! La Femme Wax

Porn Star in the back, Hippy in the front! La Femme Wax

La Femme Wax, We’re fickle beings aren’t we? The minute Cameron Diaz wages war on wax we all want our bush back! But we’re also addicted to the benefits of waxing, the smoothness , the freshness, the extra sensitivity! The answer is the La Femme wax. One newspaper described Hippy in the front, Pornstar in the back – I like this! All hair is removed from the butt crack, cheeks, inner and outer labia. While on the front a gentle tidy up of the sides leaving you with all the fresh feeling of a wax and the feminine bush that Ms Diaz favours.

G-string

The hair should be removed from the butt crack, and a good tidy up on the front. Think Thong Song!

Basic Bikini

Ya can keep ya knickers on with this!

Crease of leg. That’s it. Demure and ladylike.

Narrow Bikini

It’s just another inch on the basic bikini, the crease of leg and a tad more, no bums in the air, no nudity-perfect for a day beside the seaside in a nice M&S one piece!

In the know

If you’re a bit awkward about these things ask in advance what is included in your waxing treatment. The last thing you want is to be on the bed with your arse in the air thinking ‘What in God’s name is happening’? Or on the other end of the spectrum asking the therapist to wax your butt and having her flatly refuse.  This happened to one of my lovely clients before coming to me.
Happy waxing Girls!
