Get yourself out of a hairy situation. The French bikini wax is similar to its Brazilian sister, but leaves a little bit more to the imagination. This form of hair removal will leave a strip of hair at the front of your bikini area, in addition to the hair at the back – but will take away everything else. Ooh la la!
Before your bikini wax begins you will be taken to a room or behind a curtain to ensure privacy during the treatment. You will then be asked to remove any clothes that are in the way and lie down so that the therapist has better access to the area. Warm wax will be applied to the skin, and waxing strips place on top. Once the wax has cooled, the therapist will remove the strips (and the hair attached to them) with rapid motions designed to minimise the pain - phew.
French bikini waxes are suitable for most women. However, there are certain factors that may make it inadvisable for you to have a waxing treatment. These include:
If you think there may be a reason why bikini waxing could be unsuitable for you, consult your therapist before booking a treatment.
French bikini waxing is not for shrinking violets – if just thinking about the pain makes your eyes water then it might be a good idea to consider a different hair removal treatment.
Exfoliating with a loofah before and after your treatment can help to prevent ingrown hairs and make the waxing experience just that little bit more comfortable.
