what is a bikini wax? if you like a smooth finish, a bikini wax can give you a beach look that won’t have hair poking out down there. a bikini wax is a way to remove hair from your privates and leave you with silky smooth skin. at THE TEN SPOT®, we help you get as much hair gone as you prefer.
our standard bikini wax takes off hair from the sides and top, just like a clean-up trim, leaving you with a little hair for modesty coverage when nude.
how long does a bikini wax last?
like all ourwaxing hair removal services, a bikini wax leaves you almost entirely hair-free for at least 2 weeks. in your bikini area, you’ll probably want to schedule a wax appointment every 3 weeks or so to reclaim that smooth skin, your esthetics expert will know what’s best for you, so just ask! the wax used on your privates is designed to be gentle on your skin, so you won’t have days of redness and irritation after every session.
in between waxing sessions, it’s a good idea to exfoliate well every couple of days to prevent ingrown hairs and keep your skin soft and supple.
types of bikini wax
at THE TEN SPOT®, we offer several kinds of bikini wax. each type takes various amounts of time and targets hair in different locations. let’s take a look at your options for hair removal.
ideal for your standard bikini bottoms, the traditional bikini wax removes hair from just the sides and a little off the top. if your bikini has a traditional bottom, this wax makes sure no hair shows while you’re enjoying some fun in the sun. plus, it only takes about 10 minutes, so it’s a fairly easy way to get started.
what if you prefer a different type of bikini bottom? if thongs are your fav, a thongkini® wax might be the better choice. with this style of bikini wax, we take off hair deep into the sides, along the top, and between the cheeks. it takes a bit longer than the standard bikini at 15 minutes.
if you aren’t sure what swimsuit you’ll be sporting at poolside and the beach, you might want to take off some extra, which is where the bumkini® comes in. with this wax, aka the full bush brazilly®, you get a standard bikini wax (so the sides + a little off the top) plus we take care of any strays between the cheeks! You’re ready for pretty much anything.
the bum-cheeky wax
the bum-cheeky wax is for the bum cheeks only, giving you that same smooth finish front and back.
what’s the difference between a brazilian + a bikini wax?
a brazilian is a type of bikini wax that takes off all the hair down there. have a few strays in the butt? say goodbye! with our signature brazilian wax service, the brazilly®, you get everything off — including the full area and between the cheeks — or almost everything off; you decide. if you like to leave a little landing strip, we can do that too! the big difference between a brazilian and bikini wax is simply the amount of hair you take off.
we even have a service designed for the inexperienced — the brazilly® virgin. if it’s your first time, we promise we’ll be gentle and take it slow. our service for virgins lasts 30 minutes because we guide you through the process step by step. we’ll even tell you when to take a breath, helping you minimize any pain during the process. plus, we’ll work side to side, so if you need to call it for a rain delay, you won’t be lopsided until you decide to come back to finish up.
prepping for a private wax
keeping your bikini area in beautiful shape requires the same dedication — and many of the same steps — as the rest of your skin care routine. here are some step-by-step directions for getting prepped for your next bikini wax:
- don’t shave for a while. you’ll want to let the hair grow in enough for the wax to have something to grab onto. if you shave too often, waxing isn’t very effective.
- take an ibuprofen about an hour before your appointment. over-the-counter painkillers help with inflammation and pain, which can help reduce redness and swelling.
- don’t schedule near your period. while THE TEN SPOT® esthetics experts can take your hair off during your period t tends to be more painful. the area can be more sensitive during your period, so try not to schedule a wax for several days on either side.
- exfoliate before, not after. you’ll need to give the privates a scrub the night before, but hold off on anything harsh for several days after. let your skin settle down first.
- be prepared to get naked. if we can’t reach your privates, we can’t wax them. when we say get undressed, we definitely mean underwear too.
