Hollywood Waxing?

What Is a Hollywood Waxing?

It is a pubic hair removal style by pulling the hair out from the root with a resin wax. Hollywood waxing means complete removal of all the pubic hair from the front all the way in-between to the behind.

The origin of this waxing style is believed from Brazil dated back to 1500 AD and in Middle Eastern societies, removal of the female body hair is necessary to maintain proper hygiene, for the past many centuries.

Compare Shaving Pubic Area to Waxing

Stop Shaving Pubic Area and Start Waxing. You are only cutting the hair from the surface of the skin with shaving which causes the hair to grow back above the surface very quickly. Shaving will also cause thicker hairs grow. Waxing on the other hand removes the entire hair to its follicle from the root. Waxing is the better hair removal method if you want a longer lasting result and finer hair grow. How long the hair stays away will vary from 2 weeks to 6 weeks and differ from each individual.

Waxing Lasts Longer than Shaving Pubic Area

Hair grows in cycles: growing, resting and shedding. When you first start waxing, it will last about two weeks. If you continue to wax on a regular basis, it can last for up to six weeks but this isn’t the case for everyone, as some people just have faster growing hair than others. Waxing an area frequently over time can also damage the hair follicle, and cause it to stop growing hair.

You can do your own waxing if you are just taking the hair outside your bikini line provided you wax carefully and follow the waxing instructions. Be caution not to break hairs above or below the surface as they will "grow" back much quicker than if the entire hair follicle was removed.

If you are after a Hollywood wax then you should get it done by professional.

Hollywood Waxing Tips

A lot of women and men opt for a Hollywood Waxing because they like the feeling of the entire pubic area being totally hair-free. Because of the speciality nature of this service, it requires extra care. Take note of these Hollywood waxing tips, so you can enjoy great lasting results.

Before Hollywood Waxing Preparation:

Your skin is often more sensitive the time near your period and waxing can be more painful than normal. So your appointment shouldn't be any closer than a couple of days before or after your period. Most places understandably won’t perform a Brazilian while you’re on your period.

Shower and lightly exfoliate your entire bikini area right before your appointment using warm, not hot water. Make sure you’re extra clean.

Don’t use any lotions in bikini area.

You need some hair growth for the wax to hold onto, but not too long which can make the waxing hurt more than it needs to. Let the technician trim hair down to just the right length at your appointment, or follow the salon's specific instructions for trimming.

After Care:

Don’t wear tight panties for the next few days.

Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, as this can encourage irritation or small pimples.

Don’t take a hot bath for the rest of the day.

Avoid sun beds, saunas or steam rooms for the next two days.

Avoided Sexual activity for at least 24 to 48 hours.

Use a mild exfoliator two days later.
