If you’re planning a beach vacation, or a weekend getaway at the lake, you’ll probably be wearing your cute new swimsuit all day long. Forget worrying about your bikini area, and book yourself a bikini wax instead. If it’s your first time, you’ll want to do some research and learn what it’s all about. There are a few important tips to know before your appointment, and it’s also a good idea to decide if you’d like a full, partial, or French bikini wax.

A bikini wax is a cosmetic treatment performed at a salon or spa during which the pubic hair on both sides of your bikini line are removed using hot wax and cloth wax strips.
You spa technician will wear gloves, and apply hot melted wax onto a small section of pubic hair using a wooden spatula or spreading stick. Next, a strip of cloth or muslin is applied on top of the wax and pressed down for a few seconds. Finally, the skin is pulled taut and pulled away with one quick motion. It’s best to relax, take deep breaths, and remember that the pain is only momentary.
A French bikini wax, also known as a Landing Strip, is similar to a brazilian wax, except without hair removal at the back. Your spa aesthetician will wax most of your hair in the front, leaving a small rectangular strip at the front.
Depending on how quickly your hair grows back, a bikini wax can last about 3 to 4 weeks. Spa aestheticians recommend waiting until your hair has grown back to about ¼ of an inch long before booking your next appointment, to make sure that the wax and strips adhere to the hair properly.
As with many spa services, the price of a bikini wax can vary depending on the salon, the type of wax being used whether you’d like a full or partial bikini wax. Typically, the cost of a bikini wax ranges from $30 to over $35, not including a tip.
The first step to preparing for a bikini wax is choosing an experienced aesthetician at a salon you trust. Also, make sure your pubic hair is about ¼ of an inch long, which will help the wax adhere properly. The day before your bikini wax appointment, exfoliate your bikini area and wear loose, breathable and comfortable clothes to your appointment.
There are 8 common types of bikini wax styles to choose from, so it’s helpful to know what to ask for. Male waxing is also offered at some salons, but it’s best to ask before booking.
A bikini wax is one step from a full brazilian wax. While a brazilian wax removes all hair from the frontal part of your bikini area, all the way back and everywhere in between, a bikini wax focuses on the top and sides to achieve a neat and cleaned-up look that’s perfect for wearing bikinis on a beach vacation. You can also ask for a full bikini wax, which removes hair further along the bikini line and is best for swimwear that is a bit more revealing.
