Bikini Wax Styles:


 Bikini Wax

Standard Bikini wax

The standard bikini wax, this is simply a ‘tidy up’, that removes any hair that could be seen whilst wearing a bikini – so from the upper thighs and just outside the panty line, and also from the top that might peek over the waist-band.



 Extended Bikini Wax

Extended Bikini

This bikini wax type removes all of the hair that would be taken off with the standard bikini, but takes it deeper around the legs, and may shape it into more of a triangle by taking more off of the top. This is good for those who want to keep their hair down there, but want it to look its neatest.




 French Wax

French Wax

This bikini wax shape takes all the hair from the front, including the more intimate areas, leaving just a ‘landing strip’ on top. This wax doesn’t touch the areas behind, so is perfect for those looking to be smooth up front, without removing any hair from the back.




 Brazilian Wax


This is very similar to the French Wax in that it removes most of the hair from the front, leaving a small strip or triangle, but this also takes all the hair from the back. This is the perfect bikini wax style for wearing a thong bikini, as no hair will be visible front or back.



 Hollywood Wax


This is just about as far as you can go with bikini waxing, and is the style to go for if you don’t want any hair left down there at all, completely removing everything, front and back. This bikini wax style is for women who like it smooth and clean.
