How to Decide Which Bikini Wax Style is Right for You

So you’ve finally decided to try a Bikini Wax and you found the best waxing salon near you (a Waxxpot, perhaps?).

Congrats on an excellent decision, you won’t regret it. Heading to the pool is so much more relaxing when you don’t have to worry about unwanted hairs making an appearance.

Now all you have to do is decide which Bikini Wax style is right for you. NBD. Except there are many different options to choose from. Like, a lot. But don’t stress, we’re here to help.

Here are some of the most popular styles and the type of person/situation they’re best suited for.

Regular/Basic Bikini Wax

What is it?

A Regular Bikini Wax (also known as a Touch-Up), only removes hair from your bikini line. It basically gets rid of anything that might peek around the edges of a typical bikini bottom, but leaves everywhere else untouched.

This style is for you if:

  • You’re a waxing beginner
  • You don’t want a lot of upkeep
  • You want a clean look for a classic-cut bathing suit (nothing too high or too low)

Full Bikini Wax

What is it?

Similar to a Regular Bikini Wax, but just a little bit more. The name “Full” may be misleading – it doesn’t take off all your hair. Instead, it covers your bikini line, but goes a little bit deeper into that line than your Basic Bikini Wax.

This style is for you if:

  • You want a clean-up that’s a little more thorough than a Basic Bikini Wax
  • You’re looking for low maintenance
  • You still want hair… but not all of it

The cut and style of your swimsuit might help determine which type of Bikini Wax is right for you.

French Bikini Wax

What is it?

Ever heard of a landing strip? That’s what this is. A French Bikini Wax leaves only a rectangular strip of hair in the center and removes everything else.

This style is for you if:

  • You want pretty much all of the hair gone
  • You’re trying to ease into the Brazilian or Hollywood styles
  • You don’t mind a little tweezing to get the rectangular shape

Brazilian Wax

What is it?

Likely the most popular type of bikini wax, a Brazilian removes all hair in your nether regions, with the option of keeping just a little bit in the front. Many go for a small triangle, but you can really do any shape you want. Rectangle, square… or get creative!

This style is for you if:

  • You’re ready to jump in head-first to experience all the benefits of a more thorough wax
  • You wear thongs or similarly revealing swimsuits
  • You want that hairless look and feel

Those are the most popular types of Bikini Wax. A seasoned pro, like the ones you’ll find at Waxxpot, should be able help you decide which style is best for you. At Waxxpot, we do it all!
