Bikini Wax Tips - What to Know Before Getting a Brazilian Wax

Your First Bikini Wax – What to Expect

By Tatyana Dyachenko

If you’ve never had a bikini wax before, you could be curious about what to expect. Nobody enjoys going into something without a hint about what will happen. Before you have your first bikini wax, here is a look at just what you may expect to happen.

First, you will find that in most cases, you will be in a room with a door so you have privacy for your bikini wax. You’ll need to remove your pants or dress and underwear and then you will lie on a table.

If the hair is too long, the technician is going to trim it, since it has to be approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch long for the best waxing experience. To begin with, the technician will put talcum powder onto the skin to prevent the wax from painfully adhering to your skin.

Next your technician is going to use a wooden waxing stick, dip it in wax, and spread it over the area to be waxed. While the wax is still warm, a cloth strip will be pressed on the wax. After the wax cools, the cloth will quickly be pulled off from the direction opposite your hair growth, which in turn pulls out your hair by the root. A quality technician will perform this rapidly to help prevent too much discomfort to you.

Generally, the bikini wax will begin in the front and shift towards the back. You may be asked to help keep the skin in the area taut to make waxing easier. When the tech is finished with the waxing, typically they’ll tweeze away all stray hairs that are remaining.

A cream is spread over the area that has been waxed when the bikini wax is finished to help sooth the skin. If you wind up coping with bumps, ingrown hair, or redness in the area, a lotion with aloe or perhaps some hydrocortisone cream can be used to help relieve this problem.

Ordinarily to maintain your bikini wax you will need to get it done every two to four weeks. If you liked the technician who performed the wax the first time, don’t forget their name so you can get an appointment with them. In this way you can work with the same individual rather than needing to bare it all to some other person each time. You will also find that the more you have this type of waxing done, the less painful it will be.

Once you’ve gotten your bikini wax, you can wear that hot string bikini or thong bikini in total confidence!

Losing Your Fear Of A Bikini Wax

Most people love the idea of wearing a gorgeous bikini on a hot summer idea, but the thought of a bikini wax is enough to keep many women inside in the air conditioning. No matter the reason, bikini waxing can instill fear in the hearts of many a beach beauty.

Unfortunately, waxing is a necessary evil for bikini wearers everywhere. If you want to turn heads at the pool or on the beach for the right reasons, waxing should be part of your personal maintenance. A bikini is a great way to show off your body. But even the best body and most flattering swimsuit will go unnoticed if your grooming habits leave something to be desired. Waxing will help you avoid an embarrassing situation.

Shyness deters many people from having the procedure done. Fortunately, waxing kits are available at beauty supply stores and many retail stores so you can do your bikini wax in the privacy of your own home, or even have your partner do it. If you choose this method, wear your bikini to make sure you wax the right areas. Having a professional bikini wax, however, is less painful as they know exactly what to do. But if shyness is an issue and you choose to do it yourself, the pain will likely decrease as you become more experienced with waxing.

Pain makes many women shy away from bikini waxing. The mere thought of it makes women cringe. Honestly, bikini waxing does hurt, particularly the first time. There are steps you can take to minimize the pain, such as keeping the skin on your bikini area moisturized. This will help the wax adhere to the hairs and not to your sensitive skin.

If pain is a major factor in your decision to wax, ask the technician to remove both sides at once. It may hurt more at the time, but it’s better to get it over with than to be in pain and know that you’re not yet finished.

So if you’re ready to hit the beach in that teeny bikini, head to your local salon and take care of business so that it’s all fun in the sun!
