What is Brazilian waxing
At Salon Austin, Men’s Brazilian (Guyzilian) waxing is the
removal of all the hair in the bikini or private area, both front
and back with the exception of a small vertical area in the pubic
area sometimes called the landing strip. With this technique there
are no little curls popping out of your swimsuit?
The Hollywood waxing removes all the hair including the landing
strip area, both front and back. This is still called a Brazilian.
In men’s Brazilian waxing, as in any waxing technique, warm
wax is applied to the area to have the hair removed in the direction
of the hair growth. The skin may be stretched slightly in that
same direction to assist in removal of the wax with the hair intrapped.
The hair then captured in the wax is then removed in the opposing
direction, or opposite to the way it grows.
A pretreatment can be applied to slightly numb the areas to make waxing more comfortable
The wax used is a heavy Brazilian type wax that is removed without
the aid of fabric strips. This technique usually takes 30-60 minutes
depending on the areas involved and the amount, density, and growth
directions of the hair involved.
The hair is easier to remove if it is not too long. If the hair
is over 1 inch long it can be clipped to ½ inch to make
the process more comfortable.
Shaved already? It takes 2-3 weeks to grow enough to be
successfully and comfortably waxed. You need 1/8 to 1/4 inches
of hair to wax
Remember you are the one to determine how much hair
you want removed. Once you have received this service, you will
like the way it feels, but you will feel cleaner and more hygienic
without the worry of razor nicks and the itch of scratchy stubble.
Also Remember you need to start to exfoliate the areas waxed starting
2 days after the Brazilian waxing treatment and no sun exposure
to the area to be waxed 24 hours before or after the waxing treatment.

sensitive skin. A pretreatment can be applied to make areas less sensitive

A. No, there should be no stubble from the waxing the

break and create
stubble is if it breaks because the growth direction
can not be determined.
