What is Brazilian Waxing?

Brazilian waxing involves the removal of pubic hair using a special wax, which can be hot or cold, that adheres to hairs and pulls them out when the wax is removed quickly from the skin, usually with a cloth strip. While the practice is mainly associated with women, male waxing is also common to remove men's pubic and other body hair. Brazilian waxing is also known as a full Brazilian wax, full bikini wax, or the Hollywood wax. This style was first called the Brazilian wax by the J. Sisters salon in Manhattan, founded in 1987 by seven sisters named Padilha from Brazil.

Does a Brazilian Wax hurt?

Ripping hair out of follicles isn’t going to be painless. However, in the hands of an experienced esthetician, the process is only slightly painful. Here at the Brazilian Waxing Center we have extensive experience with hair removal, especially with Brazilian Bikini waxes and we know how to make it as confortable as possible for our clients.

How long will the results of a Brazilian Wax last?

Typically, it lasts for about 3 to 6 weeks after the first Brazilian wax, but it depends on the person’s hair growth cycle. For some people, the hair may slowly grow back again after a week or two and may become more visible after three to four weeks. The temperature also affects hair growth. During hot weather or summer, the hair grows faster compared to winter. Like other beauty treatments, it requires regular sessions to achieve optimal results.

Will waxing result in thicker, darker hair?

No. Unlike shaving, waxing removes the root of the hair follicles and over time, you may even notice that the fuzz in your hair is not coarse or dark. After your first or second waxing session, you can easily notice that the hair is finer and quite sparse. However, the result may be affected by several factors such as hormones, hair growth cycle, temperature, or if you forgot and shaved it again.

Is there a best time or season to get waxed?

No. People who get Brazilian Waxes like the hairless feeling with zero stubble, razor burn or irritation. This is why almost all of our customers continue year round. This also minimizes the discomfort associated with waxing. It gets faster and more comfortable after each waxing.
