Q: What is the difference between all bikini waxes?
- Bikini is your hair line from your underwear
- G String is a higher version of the bikini wax but not as high as a brazilian
- Brazilian is a strip of hair at the front, you may have this strip as wide or thin as you like. All the hair from the underneath and the back is removed.
- Hollywood is where all the hair is removed from the front to the back.

Hot wax is heated at a higher temperature making the pores open better making the hairs come out easier, though it does take longer to do. But you get better results and worth paying that little bit extra for. Hot wax also doesn’t break the hairs off as easy so you are much less likely to get ingrown hairs. Hot wax is fantastic for small, sensitive areas such as underarm, bikini and lip. As long as you follow the correct before and after care you should not have a problem.
Hot wax is spread thickly onto the skin and allowed to dry slightly before it is gently peeled away. This method is far less painful than most and pulls hair directly from the roots. The benefits include fewer in-grown hairs, less breakage and therefore longer regrowth periods. This wax is recommended for sensitive areas. Strip wax is recommended for thicker, less sensitive skin eg legs, arms, chest and shoulders. A thin layer of wax is applied to the skin and is then removed using a paper strip.
When our therapists use hot wax on sensitive areas they will first apply an oil to the skin which acts as a barrier between the wax and the skin. Therefore, the wax is able to shrink wrap around the hair and will not stick to the skin.
It is advised that your hair should be about ½ cm long. If you have been waxing leave it to grow for about 4-5 weeks. If you have been shaving leave it to grow for 2 weeks. Please do not trim before your appointment as you may trim the hair too short.
Everyone has different pain thresholds so your experience may be different to someone else’s. If you have waxing done on a regular basis (every 4-5 weeks) you will find it becomes easier as your hairs will thin and become sparse. For anyone will a low pain threshold you may have a couple of Nurofen about 30 mins before your appointment to reduce pain.
No matter what area(s) to have waxed please do not feel embarrassed, our beauty therapists do this all day everyday
Aftercare is vital so for 24hours after you appointment you will need to avoid the sun, sunbeds, hot showers/baths, swimming pools, suanas. Use a dry brush, exfoliator or body scrub 2 days after waxing, then 2 or 3 times a week after that to reduce ingrowing hairs.

The professional beauty therapists at the RMUK Hair and Beauty Salon in Leeds are all highly trained in the wide variety of methods used for waxing.
Every one of our clients has a different expectation of what is involved in a Brazilian wax. Some clients only wish to have the removal of any hair around the bikini line, others may wish to have a particular shape left on the front and some may wish to have all pubic hair removed totally, our highly trained staff can happily create the look you want.
The quality of wax used for Brazilian waxing is very important and we only use waxes that are perfect for your skin to ensure the procedure does not cause increased redness and skin trauma to the immediate area of skin affected.
By applying hot wax, the RMUK beauty therapist will effectively and efficiently remove hairs from the pubic area so that the end result is what you specifically require.
RMUK specialise in Brazilian treatments and ensure that you are totally relaxed and comfortable. Any questions can be addressed before and during the treatment.
After care is very important and the RMUK professional beauty therapists will make recommendations of how to maintain the Brazilian wax and at what stage to return to the salon for your next treatment.
