There is often confusion as to the different types of waxing down under! Karen put this picture together to try and clarify what each type of waxing is…
Number 1 is a bikini line, which is to the knicker line and no further.
Number 2 is a high leg bikini line which goes into the bikini line up to an inch.
Number 3 is a Brazilian which leaves a “landing strip” about 1/2 an inch either side all the way round with the option to remove hair totally from behind.
Number 4 is a Hollywood which removes all hair from everywhere. Some people prefer to leave a tiny bit at the top but it is still charged as a Hollywood.
Our fully qualified and insured therapists, Louisa and Karen do both male and female intimate waxing.
Here at Guys N Dolls, we are trained by the waxing queen Kim Lawless & use both strip and hot wax. The easiest way to describe each one is that, strip wax uses paper or fabric strips to remove wax & hot wax goes hard and is removed by hand.
Aftercare for both types of waxing involves the following. Only cold or luke warm showers should be taken for 24 hours, exfoliation and moisturising can be carried out after 48 hours, this encourages hair growth through the skin, rather than becoming ingrown. Exfoliating the knicker line and top is the most important area but be careful not to overdo it as natural oils will be stripped and have the same effect as not exfoliating at all! Once a week should be enough, although a nylon scrunchie can be used gently daily.
