Where did Brazilians Wax comes from?
Thanks to the popularity of waxing among models such as Naomi Campbell and actresses such as Gweneth Paltrow, Brazilian Bikini Waxing (BBW) has spread in salons and spas across the United States like wildfire. The Waxologists who paved the way for BBW in salons across the USA are the J-Sisters Salon in NY who services the celeb clients. In the late 90’s magazines found out that hot celebs were getting this done, they went nuts about it, and so it boomed!
Hear the Real Story of Bikini Wax
Well although Brazilians have the fame for it, history has it that the real origin is the Middle East. Brides would prepare them selves for their honeymoons by removing all pubic hair for their husbands to be on their special wedding night. Waxing in Brazil has been a long time practice but the Brazilian Bikini is more for hygiene and aesthetic purposes rather than sex in my opinion. Brazil is known for its beautiful beaches and yes it’s very tiny bikinis. In order to wear such small sized bikinis, no one wants to show off a buz especially down there. So women get waxing done enough in the inner thigh area ( bikini lines) so that no hair be seen while they are lying on one of Brazil’s many sunny beaches. So this also includes the back area known as the buttocks (haha). Think about it for a minute, if you had to wear one of those bikinis publicly, would any hair be sticking out? If your answer is yes, then you would need a Bikini Waxing- lol. Guess what though? In Brazil, most women do not go all the way and it wax it all off- ouch sounds painful. In Brazil it is done for a clean, fresh hygiene look now in a America it has taken a whole different outlook.
How did it get to the US?
Not to say that Brazilians do not also do this for bedroom intimacy also (they all want to look sexy and hot on the beach) but among Americans the “Brazilian Bikini Wax” has become known solely to satisfy one’s mate. Perhaps a sexual fantasy, all I know is that more and more women contemplate it; fearing the pain but fantasying the results.. Let us face it, men do appreciate a well groomed woman, especially in bed. Both the full Brazilian or regular Bikini Waxing is very presentable and men do like it.
Waxing is the hair removal by applying hot or cold wax in desired hairy region and removed with a piece of cloth or plastic. Ever get tape stuck to your arm or a band aid by a hairy area and you prolong taking it off- but once it is done, you feel so alleviated- Getting a BBW done is exactly that. Bikini wax is the hair removal involving the bikini areas, the inner thigh and pubic hair region. Wikipedia defines it as “Brazilian waxing is a type of waxing involving the bikini area. This procedure involves the complete removal of hair from the buttocks and adjacent to the anus, perineum and vulva (labia majora and mons pubis). Brazilians do the bikini line, being very thorough of course so thorough that the inner buttock area joining the inner thigh is also done. Remember to be specific when going to get one done. Ask questions, get referrals from friends because finding a good waxologist is like finding a good hair dresser, or more like finding a good gynecologist since you are equally intimate ( well almost- no exams though)…. Any one who says it does not hurt is lying through their teeth! It does hurt but as soon as you see the result you are so pleased that you come back for more.
