The Brazilian wax is the most popular wax at Kelowna Esthetics Studio (and at $30 you can understand why!). However, what most people don't realize is that, when they are asking for a Brazilian Wax, what they are actually meaning, is a Hollywood Wax.
Different variations of a "bikini wax"
A regular bikini wax ($20 at Kelowna Esthetics Studio) removes the hair outside what would be considered the underwear line - it can be basic, where the underwear isn't moved at all, or it can be more of a full bikini wax where the underwear is pulled in to reveal more hair, without the need to remove the underwear, or expose any potentially embarrassing areas - some women are simply not comfortable with showing that much to their esthetician which is perfectly OK!
From there, the different bikini waxes basically start removing more hair. Traditionally, the Brazilian Wax keeps a small area of hair, often called a "landing strip" (but can also be a triangle, square, oval shape etc).
The Hollywood Wax is the full works, completely bare, nothing left! Sometimes, the Hollywood wax is referred to as a "full Brazilian". At Kelowna Esthetics Studio, we just keep it simple and refer to it as a Brazilian Wax!

Don't Try it at Home!
Whether you're opting for the traditional Brazilian wax, or the full Hollywood wax, it's not recommended that you try it yourself at home. There's a great variety in the quality of waxes available, and the best quality waxes are only available to certified professionals. If it's your first time going completely bare, we will do it slowly, removing smaller sections of hair at a time - once you've had a few waxes, the hair removal gets easier, and not as painful. Whatever you do, follow the before and after care instructions with care!
