It’s October, and before you know it, your weekends will involve lazy days by the pool. That means a swimming costume. That means it’s time to wax. So which type of waxing is best for you?
A standard bikini wax is a basic shaping of pubic hair into a neat upside-down triangle shape to the edge of the panty line.
Extended Bikini or G-string Wax
An G-string wax takes the sides of the bikini line in deeper than a regular bikini wax leaving a more defined triangle with narrower edges.
A Brazilian wax takes away all the hair off the bikini line leaving a small strip on the front. Hair is removed from the front all the way round to the bottom area.
The Hollywood wax removes all hair from the front, round to the bottom – complete hair removal.
Here some of the most frequently asked questions relating to waxing answered.
Will it hurt?
It’s not exactly painless, but bear in mind we all handle pain differently. If you are new to waxing there may be an element of shock, but it gets easier with every treatment as the hair thins. After all, many women keep coming back.

From 20 minutes for a basic bikini wax to 50 minutes for a Hollywood wax
How long does it last?
Approximately 4-6 weeks.

Other things you need to know.
- Every person’s skin reacts differently to waxing. You may end up with some irritation or redness as the skin can be distressed after the first couple of treatments, but apply products that help soothe the skin
- The hair needs to have a certain length (5-10mm) to be waxed and for your first few sessions the longer the hair, the easier the wax.
- You can shave in between waxing, but just remember that the hair regrowth needs to be a certain length before we can wax again.
- And most important: it’ll make you feel Super Sexy 🙂
