When it comes to body waxing, there are many different parts of the body that can be waxed. Starting from the head down, this article will help guide you through the different parts of the body that can be waxed, and in some cases will name those types of waxing.
Many people get wax treatments on parts of their heads. Brow waxing is very popular among women, and many estheticians specialize in this type of waxing. The cool thing about brow waxing that many women enjoy is the ability to shape their brows into different and unusual configurations.
Speaking of the head, some people that wish to be bald also consider using a waxing treatment to remove all of the hair from their scalp. It’s a bit unusual, but it does work.
Moving on down the head, some women are just very hairy on their faces. Some women naturally grow mustaches, sideburns, and even beards. In the eastern world, this is a very natural look, and women don’t have an issue keeping this type of facial hair. However, westerners tend to frown on facial hair on women highly, and therefore most western women when faced with this problem prefer to have it removed.
For women, it makes the most sense to wax their facial hair versus shave it. This is because they really don’t want the razor stubble that comes from shaving, and they would prefer that the facial hair stay away for as long as possible!
Underarm hair in many countries is considered to be a good thing in women, but traditionally western women prefer to have those areas be hairless. Waxing is a great option for underarms because the hair stays away longer than with shaving. It presents a much cleaner look and prevents razor stubble. However, in the last few years, a movement has been gaining popularity that encourages the hairy underarm look in women.
Next, let’s discuss the pubic region of men and women. For women, especially those that wear bikinis, the hairless look is the only accepted look when they’re at the beach. So they will either shave or more preferably, have their groins and inner thighs waxed. This is known as a bikini wax. Women that are new to waxing will get a bikini wax before getting a Brazilian wax, which removes all or most of the hair in and around the pubic area and the anal area.
What is a Vagacial? Vagacials are a waxing style that focuses more on the outer labia areas as well as the v-shaped pubic area. Brazilians and Vagacials can be done simultaneously, but they are not the same things. Advantages of these types of waxes are that hair grows back slower than shaving, and the areas feel cleaner with a more refreshed feeling
So that covers Vagacials, but what is a manzilian wax? Of late, more and more men are working on making their pubic areas hairless as well! Because shaving has a higher chance of leaving ingrown hairs, more men are actually opting for the manzilian-style waxing and booking appointments with professional estheticians to get them. The advantages of manzilian waxing are the same as they are for women’s Brazilians – they feel cleaner and more refreshed. There’s also a sexual advantage to the hairless look and feel as well.
Many women also get their legs waxed, but as with underarms, there is a movement within the last decade in the western world to leave leg hair where it grows and not to shave or wax it off.
Finally, some women also get the tops of their feet and their toes waxed if they have hair that grows there.
