    Ok, this might sound really stupid but could someone explain different types of waxing for me?
    I normally have my legs waxed at a salon near me and I've been thinking about having my bikini line waxed but when I looked at the leaflet it says they do 'Bikini Line', 'Hollywood' or 'Brazilian'.....I'm completely lost!
    Can anyone tell me what each one is or maybe how much hair is taken off which each one?
    Thanks to anyone who can help me out

    ok brazilian is where they leave the little 'landing strip' down the middle, and hollywood is where it is all waxed off! a bikini line wax uaully means just waxing the inner thighs and neatens up the area in general into the triangle. it all depends how brave you are lol!

    I think I could probably handle the bikini but the others just sound scary

    yeah it hurts - but its not THAT bad, you get used to it and its definately worthwhile doing! some people recommend taking asprin half an hour before you go to numb the pain but i just grin and bear it lol! go for it!

    If you don't mind me asking, don't you not find it embarrassing? I think I'll try the bikini first and see how it goes

    at first i was as red as a beetroot - but these people do it as their job, all day every day. they have probably seen more female genatalia than a male porn star! its so professional and clinical that you dont get embarrased once you are in there, and i honestly mean that. and even if you are nervous, tell the women and they will put you at ease. i know the women by name now and dont think twice about lying back and letting them work their magic! :eek:

    if you have the bikini line done they will probably provide you with little paper knickers which they will 'work around.' i dont blame you starting there, if you like it - stick with it, and you can always go that litle bit further!

    The woman I'd go to already does my legs for me so I suppose it wouldn't be that embarrassing when I think about it, she's very straight-to-the-point so I'm sure that'll help, and like you said she's seen it all before so she's not gonna care! :p:

    there are quite alot of men do the waxing - i wouldnt have a problem with it personally, but some women would, understandably!

    and also there alot of men these days that wax a bit here....and a bit there.......and they might feel more comfortable if a man was to do it.

    Next time I go for a leg wax gonna bite the bullet and have a bikini wax too. I've done it myself before and was in agony..so I think it can't be any worse than that..therefore I've concluded I can cope with the pain (just).

    I had a brazilian before, it looked quite good but what do you guys all do in the 'in between' stage? Ive never gone back a 2nd time cos i kinda think i hav to wait for it to grow back to hav it waxed again so i may as well leave it

    Don't wax yourself. Even if your doing your legs. It's much better to go to a professional, you get a better result and it hurts less!
