One of the growing trends in beauty care in past years has been that of hair removal. It seems as if hair is definitely 'out' and everyone wants a smooth, hairless body. In actuality, the human body is almost completely covered with hair, with the exception of the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. This makes for a lucrative business for those who are licensed for hair removal. Although there is not only one hair removal method to choose from, hair waxing has long been one of the most popular methods of removing hair. And women are not the only ones buying into this hair removal craze. Men are also among frequent customers getting their backs, chests and other areas hair-free with hair waxing.
Waxing has long been a favorite method of those seeking to be smooth. Waxing requires hot wax to be poured on the area and then removed by having strips stuck on and pulled off along with unwanted hair. Although this method is often painful, it is cost effective and can last a while, which keeps many customers coming back for more. Another selling point for some is that waxing can be done by professionals in a salon or can be done in your own home with one of many self-waxing kits sold in stores. For people not wanting to spend a lot of money or have the process done in a public salon, home waxing can seem attractive.
There are a number of areas on the human body that people choose to wax. Women have made waxing extremely popular for their legs and bikini areas, particularly during summer months. Since waxing keeps areas hair free longer than shaving and often keeps the area from becoming irritated with small red bumps like shaving sometimes does, waxing has grown more and more popular. However, while shaving can be done to smooth areas with even the shortest stubble of hair sprouting up, to wax an area you must wait until a certain length of hair has grown in so the wax has a substantial amount of hair to grip onto and pull out. Another benefit of waxing is that the process makes hair grow back finer each time. That means that each time the hair grows back after waxing it will be thinner and easier to remove.
Since bikini waxing has become so popular in recent years, there have been a number of different bikini waxes developed depending on how much hair a woman wants removed. This allows women to have a number of choices when it comes to bikini waxes. Most of the time, the person working in the salon where you get your bikini wax will be able to help you if you are unsure about what type of wax you are seeking. However, most women have an idea in mind when they schedule their waxing appointment. Standard bikini waxes remove the hair around the bikini line, making more pleasurable to wear a bathing suit. This is perhaps the most popular bikini wax. However, the waxing does not stop there. A full bikini wax removes all pubic hair except for a strip, while a Brazilian bikini wax takes off all hair in the bikini area. The names of the waxes can vary from salon to salon but these are typically the types of waxes offered.
Waxing, particularly bikini waxing, is done in a private area of the salon, so do not worry about others viewing your wax. Your position during a bikini wax is considerably similar to your position during a gynecological exam. If you are receiving a full or Brazilian wax you may find that it is necessary for you to get into different positions for the person doing the waxing to reach all areas of hair. But since salon employees who administer bikini waxes likely do numerous waxes each day, they are used to the process and you should not feel embarrassed. Results of bikini waxing typically last anywhere from ten to twenty days, then you will likely be ready for another appointment. And keep in mind that since the hair must be a certain length in order to be removed with waxing, you will have to go at least a few days with a considerable amount of stubble
