Hey there! Whether you're a seasoned professional or just dipping your toes into the world of Brazilian waxes, it's normal to have questions or feel unsure about the etiquette involved. At Waxology Weho, we've seen it all, and we're here to help estheticians and clients easily navigate this process. Knowing the ins and outs of a Brazilian wax – from preparation to aftercare – makes the experience smoother and more comfortable for everyone.
The Curious Client: Asking Those Awkward Questions
We get it, Brazilian waxes can bring up some awkward questions. But hey, that's perfectly fine! Our job as professionals is to anticipate these concerns and make our clients feel at ease, especially the first-timers. Whether you're a client wanting to know more about Brazilian wax etiquette, or an esthetician looking to gently guide your clients, we've got the tips to handle all the tricky questions.
What's a Full Brazilian Wax Anyway?
A full Brazilian wax means removing all the hair from your intimate area, front to back. It's more thorough than a bikini wax, which just tackles the hair around the edges. A Brazilian wax includes removing hair from the labia and pubic bone too. And yes, it also involves hair removal inside the butt crack. Clients can select to opt out of this part, but it's generally part of the package.
Pre-Wax Etiquette: Cleanliness is Key
Before coming in for your wax, it's a good idea to freshen up a bit. Think of it like prepping for a doctor's visit – a quick shower and some clean underwear can make you feel more confident and comfortable. We understand that life happens (hello, summer sweat!), but a little effort in cleaning up makes the experience pleasant for you and your esthetician.
Post-Gym Wax? Maybe Not the Best Idea
Sweating it out at the gym before your wax appointment? It might be best to hold off. Excess sweat and body oils can create a barrier, making the wax less effective and the process more challenging (and maybe even more painful). So, try to come in as fresh as possible.
Skip the Pre-Wax Cocktail
It's a myth that a drink before your wax will ease the pain. In reality, alcohol can tighten your pores, making hair removal tougher and more painful. Plus, being tipsy or drunk can create an awkward situation with your esthetician.
Bathroom Breaks: Better Safe Than Sorry
Feel the need to pee before your wax? Go for it. It's common, and your esthetician wants you to be comfortable. Even if you don't feel like it, using the restroom before your wax can prevent any mid-wax urges, thanks to the pressure applied during the process.

Tackling Awkward Questions
1.Is My Hair Too Long? Nope! Longer hair actually works better for waxing. If it's too short, we can't wax it effectively.
Waxing Positions Explained: You'll be guided into positions like lying on your back with your legs bent or on your side for easy access. Each esthetician may have their own methods, so just follow their lead.
2. Do I Need to Get Completely Naked? Not completely. You'll need to remove clothing from the waist down, but you can keep your top on. Opt for practical and comfortable clothing.
3. Waxing on Your Period? It's possible but not recommended. If you do, make sure you're wearing a tampon. Remember, your intimate areas are more sensitive during your period, so it might be more uncomfortable than usual.
