Intimate Waxing For Women

Stay smooth and sleek with a hair removal service from Melanie Richard’s Hair & Beauty Salon in Peterborough.  When it comes to intimate waxing there are lots of different types and styles – so here’s a handy guide to help you decide what wax you want.

Is it safe to have waxing treatments whilst pregnant is a common question we get asked – the answer is yes! Your baby bump shouldn’t get in the way of your self-care and you can even have intimate waxing all the way into your 3rd trimester.

 Standard Bikini Wax

By just waxing around the bikini line itself, we can keep things looking tidy but natural, as hair is only removed from outside of where your underwear sits.  This means any annoying hair above your pants or around the top of your thighs will be banished!

High Bikini Wax

The Full Bikini Line Wax or Classic Bikini Line Wax is another more natural-looking option.  This is designed to make the top and sides of your pubic hair neater.  There’s no need to, but if you do feel a bit embarrassed or nervous, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can keep your knickers on while you have this waxing treatment carried out!

Hollywood & Brazilian Waxing

A Brazilian Wax is a popular waxing treatment for women and is where nearly all the hair from all over your pubic area is removed. That means everything from the top, sides and all the way under and around your bum, leaving just a small strip or triangle-shaped piece of hair at the front of the pubic area. 

The Hollywood is where everything is removed! If you want to be very smooth and hair free, then the Brazilian Wax or Hollywood Wax is a good choice for you.
