Here’s a fun fact: The term “Brazilian waxing” first came about in the 1970s when women sported tinier thongs at the beaches in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Opting for a Brazilian wax meant removing almost all of the hair around the intimate area and leaving just a thin strip on the front — thus, making you look smooth, hair-free and ready for poolside expeditions and beach adventures.
What to know before your first Brazilian waxing appointment
Feeling conscious about the size of your beauty bush prior to your very first Brazilian wax experience? Resist the urge to shave it. Wax experts have shared that it’s easier to work on longer hairs than short ones. If you must, you may trim down to a quarter inch.
No pain, no gain. You should brace yourself for a little pain and discomfort too, especially if it’s your first time. If you have a very low tolerance for pain, consider taking pain relief medication prior to your visit. Check with your doctor too before you do so.
