Bikini and Brazilian Waxing

Understanding the Types

If you’ve heard the terms “bikini wax” and “Brazilian wax” used interchangeably, then you may be confused. But don’t worry—we’re here to clear things up! At European Wax Center, here’s how we differentiate our top three service offerings.

  • Bikini Line

    Bikini Line

    Bikini line is a basic tidying; we wax the sides (called your panty line) and across the top. If you’re wearing a bikini, this prevents any hairs from peeking out.

  • Bikini Full

    Bikini Full

    Bikini Full allows you to take off as much or as little hair as you like from the front. If you want to leave a small strip, triangle, square, or nothing at all, it’s up to you!

    Price: starting at $47

    50% OFF  for first-time guests

  • Brazilian

    Brazilian

    A Brazilian goes from the front all the way to the back with an added butt strip. It’s perfect for a completely nude look or you can leave a neat triangle, strip, or square on the front—totally your choice.

    Benefits

  • Skin Health

  • Smoother Skin

  • Longer-lasting Results

  • Thinner & Finer Hair

  • Minimal Irritation

In addition to hair removal, waxing acts as a physical exfoliation that removes lifeless surface skin cells, meaning you’re receiving hair removal and skincare all in one!

After your wax, you'll probably find that your skin is smoother than it's been in your whole life. That's because waxing removes hair from the root and exfoliates your skin.

When hair is removed by the root, it takes much longer to grow back than with shaving.

When your hair does grow back after waxing, it will grow back weaker, making it finer, softer and more sparse.

Win-win!

Many people find hair removal methods like epilation and hair removal creams irritating to the skin. However, waxing rarely causes this problem if it's done by a licensed professional.

FAQs

Can I get a bikini wax or Brazilian if I’m having my period?

Absolutely! Just keep in mind that your pubic area is often more sensitive during this time, so you may experience more discomfort than usual. In order to successfully complete the service, you will need to wear a tampon.

Can I get waxed if I have a sunburn?

We have a policy against performing waxing services on sunburned skin or skin that's irritated or unhealthy. Believe us, you wouldn’t like it if we did! But once that gorgeous skin of yours has healed, you can call or click here to book a new waxing reservation.

Can I get waxed if I’m taking medication?

It's always best to refer to your doctor if you have any questions about bikini waxing services. 

For prescribed creams like retin-a or differin, we advise that you stop use seven days prior to your reservation and do not resume use until seven days after your bikini wax. 

We will not wax you if you're on accutane or have been in the past 6 months. It's very dangerous to wax while on accutane and a doctor's note will be needed to receive services. This is why it's so important to inform our guest service associates of what medications you may be taking so we can provide you with a safe, comfortable waxing experience.

Is it safe to have a Brazilian wax while pregnant?

First, congratulations! Second, yes, you can still bikini or Brazilian wax. However, you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body's going through. Our wax specialists will make you as comfortable as possible during the service. For waxes the last two months of your pregnancy, we recommend checking with your doctor first.

How long is long enough for my hair to get a bikini wax?

You'll get the best wax if you let the hair grow to about ¼ inch so the wax can fully adhere. 

Is there an age limit for waxing reservation?

European Wax Center's policy is to require guests under 16 to have parental consent for bikini waxing services. Each location has their own young guest policy when it comes to providing bikini line waxing services on minors. You'll need to inquire with the center directly or check with your local center for state and county guidelines to see what their age limit is. (Oh, and just in case you were wondering…there’s no upper age limit, either. We welcome everyone!)

Do I need to prepare for my bikini wax?

No, our Wax Specialists will take care of everything and walk you through our 4 Steps To Smooth process. We just kindly ask that you arrive on time.

What if I have piercings and tattoos? Will it hinder my experience in any way?

Waxing areas with tattoos won't cause any damage to your art or your skin. In fact, waxing can help brighten your tattoo by removing the dead surface cells on top of it. 

 For piercings, we recommend removing your piercing. If you can't remove it, your wax specialist will have to go around it which could result in leaving a couple of hairs that are too close to touch.

Do you offer waxing services for men?

Absolutely! Although the range of waxing services for men is different, we do have a comprehensive list of waxes to choose from.  From body to brow to face, look no further than the wax experts at European Wax Center.

Aftercare

Your first bikini wax will remove the majority of hair that’s grown above the skin. Because they grow in different cycles, hairs that were growing below the skin’s surface during your first wax will be removed during your new few waxes. After three to four waxes, all hairs should be growing in the same cycle, which means longer-lasting results for you!
