Does bikini wax not seem like your cup of tea? Would you like some answers before you give bikini waxing a go? Do you need a slight push before you get started? If you find yourself saying “yes” to these questions, then you are in the right place! We are answering some of your most common questions about bikini waxing. 

Let’s get started. 

And let’s start at the very beginning and the basics.

What is a bikini wax? 

A bikini wax is a hair removal method that focuses on tidying up the hair along the bikini line. So when you wear a pair of bikinis, there’s no hair poking out from the sides. 

This procedure involves applying warm wax to the desired area and swiftly removing it, along with the unwanted hair. It ensures a smoother and hair-free bikini line, leaving you with a clean and confident feel for those beach days. Bikini line waxing, it's a quick and effective way to maintain a well-groomed appearance in your bikini region.

What is a Brazilian bikini wax?


A Brazilian bikini wax takes the bikini wax a step further. In a Brazilian bikini wax, the hair removal goes beyond the bikini line. In Brazilian wax, all or most of the pubic hair in the bikini area, including the front, sides, and back, is removed.  A Brazilian wax removes hair from the labia and butt as well. A Brazilian bikini wax is chosen by those who prefer a completely hair-free and smooth look in their intimate areas. This method is popular for maintaining a sleek and polished appearance, especially during swimsuit season.

What is the difference between Brazilian wax and bikini wax?

The main difference between a Brazilian wax and a bikini wax lies in the amount of hair removed. A bikini wax only removes hair along the bikini line, while a Brazilian wax eliminates hair from the entire pubic area, including the back and buttocks. With bikini waxes, you can choose to remove hair just along the bikini line or opt for a more extensive removal.

What is an extended bikini wax?

An extended bikini wax involves more hair removal than a regular bikini wax but doesn't go as far as a Brazilian wax. It typically removes hair from the sides and top of the bikini line may be even getting a landing strip. You can leave as much or as little depending on personal preference. It's a middle ground between a basic bikini wax and a more extensive Brazilian wax, offering flexibility in styling.

Does a bikini wax include lips?

A basic bikini wax usually doesn't include the intimate areas or vag lips. It focuses on the bikini line, reducing hair outside the panty line. For more extensive hair removal, you'd typically need a Brazilian wax.

How painful is bikini wax?

Bikini wax pain varies from person to person. It might feel like a quick pinch for some, while others may find it a bit more intense. Factors like your pain tolerance, the thickness of your hair, and the skill of the esthetician play a role. It also depends on the kind of wax you choose for bikini waxing.

What kind of wax should I use for bikini waxing?

Hard wax is gentler on your bikini area than soft wax causing less pain and discomfort. Some hard waxes, like the Bikini Star Beads from Tress Wellness, are formulated especially for sensitive areas like the bikini line. It makes the waxing experience a smooth painless breeze.

How long does a bikini wax last?

A bikini wax typically lasts two to four weeks, depending on your hair growth.

Factors such as hair thickness, volume, and the regularity of waxing can influence how long a bikini wax will last. With regular waxing sessions, the hair follicles weaken over time, leading to slower regrowth.

How much does a bikini wax cost?

Bikini wax costs depend on various factors, including location, salon reputation, and the type of bikini wax. On average, prices range from $45 to $55, but high-end salons may charge more. Whereas, at-home bikini wax gets the job done at a fraction of the cost. With an at-home waxing kit, like the Tress Wellness all-in-one waxing kit, you get multiple sessions of waxing for multiple body parts for the same price in the comfort of your home.
