The ultimate guide to waxing this summer

The ultimate guide to waxing this summer

It’s that time of year, when a lot more skin is being exposed – this means we need to think about hair removal!

Ever come across a spa or salon that dedicates themselves solely to one preferred treatment method – waxing? Welcome to WAXIT – a wax bar dedicated solely to smooth skin. It’s a refuge of removal, a haven of hairlessness, a sanctuary of smooth. Waxing is one of the best ways of removing hair for an extended period of time. To get the best result, it is recommended that you wax regularly (every 4-6 weeks) and completely avoid shaving in between.

One of the most popular waxes especially once summer arrives, is the “below the waist” wax. There are many different types and many different names!

Full moon: includes waxing of both bum cheeks and between the cheeks

Two moons: includes waxing of both bum cheeks

Total eclipse: includes waxing between the cheeks

Beach ready: includes waxing of the brief or speedo line

G-string: G-string line wax, does not include between the cheeks

South American smile: removes all hair except for a frontal strip. excludes between the cheeks

Hollywood: everything off, including in-between the bum cheeks

The names and meanings vary from salon to salon, so it’s always best to ask or let the therapist know when making the appointment exactly what you want. If you have any concerns or are unsure of anything, please ask your WAXITologists for advice.
