Bikini(s) will be done by our therapists today
'Too much of a softie to go the whole hog straightaway, I needed breaking in gently!! The basic bikini tidied me up and left me booking straight back in for a brazilian!!'

What Is It?
Our basic bikini wax is a good place to start if you're a wax virgin. We remove any hair showing on the outside of the knicker line and upto 2 inches on the inside.

At Brazilian Waxing Company we tend to do what other salons call an "Extreme Bikini" as our standard Basic Bikini.

You'll be pleased with the difference it can make to your confidence :) Perfect for those who just want to be kept neat and tidy. Now go ahead and wear those skimpy silk panties!

What Wax Do We Use?
We use our extra gentle Organic wax which doesn't leave your skin sore. Pop in and ask one of our therapists for a mini test strip to see just how gentle our wax is!

If you would like to book in for the womens treatments, that's not a problem we won't charge you anymore. If you could just give us a call on 02081234332 to let us know so we can ensure we have the correct time slot for your treatment.

Things to consider BEFORE a Bikini Wax

1) Unfortunately we cannot wax near the abdomen area i.e abdomen, Bikini, Brazilian or Hollywood area, if you are in your first trimester of pregnancy as this is the most critical time for your baby as your little embryo tries to establish. You are absolutely safe to wax these areas from your second trimester right up until your due date.

2) We cannot wax anyone who has been on a sunbed within 24 hours or if you are sunburnt.

3) Exfoliate the area before your appointment. It will help to lift out ingrown hairs and get you a smoother result.

4) Don't remove any hair from the area for at least 2 weeks before your first wax for best results. The hair needs to be the right length for the wax to 'grab' onto. If you can pinch the hair it is long enough.

Things to consider AFTER a Bikini Wax

1) You must not use a sunbed or sun bathe for 48 hours after a wax.

2) Redness in the area is normal and will subside within a few days.

3) Wait for any redness to fade then exfoliate everyday in the shower to avoid in growing hairs.

4) Hair grows on a 28 day cycle so we recommend getting waxed every 4 weeks. The more you wax the longer it takes to grow back again :)

5) Never shave between waxing! It makes your hair grow back thicker, makes your wax more painful, your hairs more stubborn and un-does the benefit of your wax.

Does this include all the way up the back or not?

Hi Chloe The basic bikini only removes the hair that shows on the outside of your underwear. I would advise a Brazilian or Hollywood if you would prefer the hair from the back to be removed too.

Hi rukshana Ouch that sounds painful! Shaving can be difficult, especially when it grows back so fast!! I can understand your nerves about waxing but I can honestly say it's nowhere near as bad as you anticipate. If it would help, you are more than welcome to come down to any of our branches and one of our girls will talk you through the process and show you around the salon. I hope to see you soon!

How long is it before the hair starts growing back?

Hi Natalie. If its your first time waxing then you will probably see small hair growth after about 2 weeks. This extends to 3/4 weeks after a few visits. Again, its difficult to give a precise answer as hair growth differs so much between people. Best thing to do is have at least 3 sessions and see how you feel. We also offer Lasering for long lasting results.
