Brazilian Waxing VS. Bikini Waxing

As we start to feel the heat...(and the sweat) of Summer we also start to see a lot more questions of what is the difference between Brazilian and Bikini Waxing. You've finally decided to get waxed "down there" but then you realize you don't know which wax you'd prefer. That's where this blog comes in. Come with me to get the waxing 101 on the different types of waxing for the bikini area.

What is the best wax for a Brazilian & Bikini Waxing?

When it comes to bikini waxing, using the right type of wax can make all the difference. We swear by using premium, professional-grade hard waxes specifically designed for sensitive areas. The best hard wax for bikini waxes should be gentle on the skin while effectively gripping even the shortest and most stubborn hairs. We love hard waxes infused with soothing ingredients which help to reduce redness and irritation. These hard waxes adhere to the hair rather than the skin, making the removal process less painful and minimizing the risk of irritation. Our top pick is a hypoallergenic formula that's free of harsh chemicals and fragrances, ensuring a smooth, comfortable waxing experience with minimal discomfort and long-lasting results.

What’s the Deal with Bikini Waxes?

Okay, so a bikini wax is perfect if you just want to clean up around the edges. Here’s the scoop:

  • Hair Removal Area: A bikini wax gets rid of the hair on the sides and top of your bikini line. This means no awkward peek-a-boo moments in your swimsuit. It’s all about keeping things tidy and neat.

  • Options: You can totally choose to leave a little strip or triangle in the front if that’s your thing. It’s a classic look and not too drastic.

Fun Fact: Here at BARE we offer a Bikini Line wax which is the outter line of the bikini area plus a little off the top.

OR We offer a Full Bikini Wax, which includes the Bikini Line and the Front Pubic area. (Think Brazilian without the butt strip.)

And What About Brazilian Waxes?

Now, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, a Brazilian wax might be your jam. Here’s what happens:

  • Hair Removal Area: A Brazilian wax takes off all the hair from the front, back, and everything in between. Yup, that includes the labia and the butt strip area.

  • Options: You can go completely bare, or you can leave a little strip, triangle, or even a custom design in the front. It’s all about what makes you feel fab.

Why should you get a Brazilian Wax?

A Brazilian wax not only leaves your skin completely smooth but also gently exfoliated and healthy. This method removes dead skin cells from the sensitive pubic and buttocks areas, promoting the generation of new tissue.

Clogged pores in these areas can lead to breakouts, which are often aggravated by shaving. Choosing a Brazilian wax, along with proper pre and post-wax care, can significantly reduce these blemishes and even help decrease hyperpigmentation.

Waxing also stimulates collagen production, which hydrates and strengthens the sensitive skin in your pubic area. A Brazilian wax isn’t just for looking great at the beach; it also keeps your skin feeling nourished and rejuvenated. As hair is removed from the root and new tissue grows, new hairs will grow back thinner and weaker, minimizing the risk of ingrown hairs and irritation for long-lasting smoothness.

Which is Right for Me?

When deciding between a Brazilian wax and a bikini wax, it's important to know that they have many similarities. Both procedures take about 15 minutes to complete, cost under $100, and the results last around 3-4 weeks. Your choice depends mainly on your grooming preferences and pain tolerance.

Our experts use the best pre-and-post wax care techniques to make the experience as comfortable as possible. However, the sensitive skin in your pubic area might still experience some discomfort. A Brazilian wax might be more painful because it removes more hair. Additionally, maintaining a Brazilian wax requires daily moisturizing and exfoliating twice a week. Keeping the area bare helps to ensure smoothness by keeping pores clear and the skin hydrated. It's a small price to pay if you want a completely smooth result from front to back.

On the other hand, a bikini wax might be better for those with hypersensitive skin, waxing beginners, or those who prefer low-maintenance grooming. It’s perfect for a quick clean-up rather than full hair removal, making it ideal for special occasions like vacations or date nights, and it requires less upkeep over time.
