Some of the advantages are that every time you wax the hair roots grow back smaller, and the hair grows back thinner and lighter. You don´t need to worry about the hair growing back darker like it would if you shave it.

Leg waxing

This is one of the most common types of waxing. It is very simple; they add the wax with a stick at the beginning of your legs, then they put a strip of paper above it and remove it quickly. Once you do it more often, the skin is going to get used to it, and the hair will grow thinner, and your skin also will look smoother. Either is your first time or not, stay away from hot showers to avoid serious skin irritation.

Armpits waxing

Same as all types of waxing, hair regrowth can range from two to eight weeks, depending on your hair´s natural regrowth cycle. Unlike shaving, waxing doesn´t leave the typical gray, shadowy patch because the hair takes longer to grow back and you don´t need to be waxing every time it starts growing just like shaving.

Bikini waxing

There are many bikini waxing styles one can choose. Just keep in mind that every spa or salon has their names or versions of bikini waxing.

  • Regular bikini wax:  It removes the hair outside the panty line.
  • Full bikini wax: Takes the sides of the bikini line deeper than a regular bikini wax and it can also include waxing some hair on top to make a more defined triangle area.
  • French bikini wax: Takes all hair in the front except from one strip, and continues to the right before the back. It doesn´t take the hair off the back as in Brazilian waxing.
  • Brazilian bikini wax: This wax style takes all the hair off the bikini line, front all the way to the back.
  • Hollywood: This style of bikini waxing leaves you with no hair at all. It is not recommended for your first bikini wax.
