Let’s be frank: some degree of body hair removal is seen by many as simply good grooming. headlineSpavilla recommends waxing, because it’s easier on your skin and nerve endings than shaving or depilatories, minimizing red bumps and irritations, and over time the area will have less hair growth allowing for fewer waxing sessions.
The Waxing Process
Warm wax is applied to hair and hair is removed from the root. At headlineSpavilla, we only use a hard wax for face, underarm, and bikini waxing, which is best for those sensitive areas. This makes for a more comfortable experience for our guests. A soft wax (needs to be removed with a strip of cloth) is used for larger areas such as legs, back, etc. We have internationally-trained wax educators who have trained all of our waxing specialists.
Discomfort varies widely and we will gladly do a test strip for those interested.
What’s the difference between a Bikini, Brazilian, and Sphynx wax?
Bikini waxing refers to the removal of hair beyond the bikini line, a euphemistic term to describe pubic hair visible beyond a typical bikini swimsuit.
Ideally bikini waxing should be done every four weeks year-round. Over time hair becomes weaker and grows more slowly leading to less frequent waxing.
Brazilian waxing refers to removal of the majority of hair. Brazilian waxes often leave a small strip, triangle or oval shape piece of hair in the front and down the middle (does not remove labia or perennial area).
The Sphynx removes all hair from the pubic area, labia, buttocks, and perianal areas.
