Who doesn’t love the feel of silky smooth skin, especially in the bikini area? If you’ve never done it before, you might suspect that the Brazilian wax is the way to achieve this – and your man might like it, too ($70 for men). This type of wax removes all hair around your pubic area and butt; although, you can opt for a small landing strip or triangle of hair to remain. You can also get a Brazilian if you think it’ll encourage your man to give Manscaping a go if he’s a little unkempt. It’s only fair for both of you to give and receive! source:badgirlsbible.com

If you are planning a romantic night or a summer get away, you may be looking to get a Brazilian wax to be ready for it. Brazilian waxes leave you with perfectly smooth skin without all the bumps that shaving leaves. It will remove all of your hair in your pubic region and butt, with some possibilities for customization like if you want a cute triangle, or a directive landing strip. It is important to know some key things before your appointment to make sure that your wax is successful and as painless as possible.

Before You Go

For both men and women, there are a few Brazilian wax tips to keep in mind as you get ready for your waxing appointment. First, make sure that you have not shaved the area for about two weeks before your appointment. It is important that your hair is at least a quarter of an inch long, or the wax will not have enough hair to grab onto. If your hair is not long enough, you will go through all of the same pain, without getting those glorious results.

Second, on the day off, try not to drink too much caffeine or alcohol. Your normal cup of morning joe should be fine, but down down 3-4 cups or start drinking because you are nervous about the procedure. This is because caffeine and alcohol will tighten your pores and make it more painful for you. In addition, excessive amounts of caffeine will not help you relax on the waxing table which also makes the process less painful.

Third, it is part of Brazilian wax etiquette that you make sure your parts are properly cleaned and dried before you go to your appointment. Someone is going to be very closely examining them and putting wax all over them, and the last thing you want is to be embarrassed by your own lack of hygiene. Part of your cleaning should include some type of exfoliation to make sure that your hair comes out quicker. This will also lower the pain in the process. Do not exfoliate again for at least a week after your wax.

The Waxing Session

At our waxing salon, Proper Puss charges $65 for a Brazilian wax NYC, which removes all hair from the labia and butt crack. Your hair must be at least 1/4″ long to get optimal waxing results. You should also exfoliate your skin with something like a sugar or salt scrub (or our Coffee Scrub). This way, your hair comes out quick and clean. After your wax, you must wait a week to exfoliate in the Bikini area.

When you arrive, you will be placed into a room and your skin will be prepped. This prepping involves cleaning your pubic area with an anti-bacterial solution. You may find this offensive, but it actually helps prevent any infection by killing bacteria before it enters your open wounds that happen during the waxing process.

Next, the person who will be doing your waxing will measure your hair to make sure it is long enough for this process. Yes, size does matter when it comes to waxing. The longer the hair, the better your wax will be.

Finally, the waxing technician will apply the wax. There are two types of wax that can be used. One is a soft wax also known as a honey wax. The other is a hard wax. The soft wax sticks more to your skin, and the hard wax sticks more to the hair. If you have any choice, we recommend the hard wax because it is less painful on delicate areas of the body.

You are now know the key things you need to know before your appointment. You can book an appointment with either our Manhattan location or our Ithica location today and get ready for the smoothest skin of your life.
