For those are you who are considering getting a bikini wax for the summer, I say go all the way and get a Brazilian instead! I had my first Brazilian a few months ago and now I am totally hooked!

So how does a Brazilian wax differ from a regular bikini wax? Basically, a Brazilian wax involves removing all the hair down there or all except a landing strip. This form of hair removal was founded by a group of Brazilian women in New York in the 80s but did not gain its popularity until the 90s. Brazilian waxes normally run from $60 to over $100. The first time I got it done, I paid $90 for it. Expensive? Yes but totally worth it. The area was so smooth and the hair did grow back finer and a lot less. As for the pain, it did hurt but was totally bearable. I could walk perfectly fine afterwards and there was no swelling or breaking out either.
