Bikini waxing - what to ask for...

Might have a hot date soon, and was wondering about the latest trends for hair removal in the bikini area?

I have normally had just a bikini line wax, suited me fine as I was in a long term relationship. But possible new man so was thinking of a Brazillian. Does that get rid of all hair front and back? Presumably you don't wear pants for the procedure either?

Not worried about pain, so what do I ask for?

Brazilian gets rid of all front and back apart from a 'landing strip' down the middle, as narrow or as wide as you like (personally go for about 2cm wide). If you want all of it gone, that's a Hollywood. Never had that done, but for Brazilian I've always kept knickers on and just pulled them to the side as and when required, helps to get a straight line for hairs that aren't removed!

I took my knickers off for a Brazilian. I wouldn't have it all off, maybe save that one for when you are a bit more established in your relationship and it's something you both fancy.

It's nice to have a smooth undercarriage IMO blush so I like the Brazilian. I have my landing strip a bit shorter but wider - more like a little square than a strip.

He's not going to be too worried about you being on trend if he's getting to see your muff though! grin

Can I ask a daft question?

The hairs that are left unwaxed - the "landing strip" - does it get a trim/haircut (like DH's eyebrows at the barbers) or is it left bushy?

You can ask them to trim it if you like. Personally, I trim mine with a bikini shaver once I get home.

Also for a true Brazilian, you'll be asked to turn over onto your front and to spread your cheeks for that area to be waxed.
