Bikini Line Waxing
The removal of hair from a woman’s body that is above the leg and below the navel is known as bikini waxing. This area of a woman’s body is also known as the ‘bikini line’, which is a euphemistic term that has developed over the decades to refer to pubic hair which is visible beyond that which a typical bikini swimsuit covers. Although bikini waxing is the most popular form of hair removal from this region there are other methods for bikini hair removal, these are:
Types Of Bikini Waxing
Bikini waxing can be classified into three types, all have differing levels of hair removal and styles, these are:
French Bikini Wax This method of bikini waxing leaves a vertical strip of pubic hair two to three finger widths in length just above the woman’s vulva. With this method of bikini waxing it is also common for the woman to remove hair from the anal area and labia.
American Bikini Wax This style of bikini waxing is perhaps the most basic of those available. It involves removal of hair from the top of the thighs and just under the navel to prevent the bikini line being seen whilst wearing a bathing suit.
Brazilian Bikini Wax This is predominantly the most popular form of bikini waxing that is done within this country by woman of all ages. This form of bikini waxing refers to the removal of all hair from the front and back except for a thin strip of hair on the pubis. Commonly viewed as an extreme form of bikini waxing, this method also involves removal of all hair from the buttocks and that adjacent to the vulva, anus and perineum
