It’s hard to imagine that one would actually pay someone to come at their nether regions with a stick covered in hot wax. Yet ladies (and increasingly more gents!) regularly schedule time to have unwanted hair ripped off from their loins, never to be seen again* (*approximately one month later).
Just like the hair on your head, how your hair is styled down there can say a lot about you. Waxing south of the border has become more than just keeping trim and tidy — it says a lot about your personality. Are you low maintenance? Have a sense of adventure? Maybe you just like to experiment.
But there’s a new style sweeping nether-regions across the globe: the full-bush Brazilian. Combining the au naturel look of the ’70s with the modern, no-hair-left-standing Brazilian, the combo style keeps things full in the front and bare in the back. It’s perfect for those with low pain thresholds and who want minimal maintenance.
Not sure which style suits your fancy? Check out these nine waxing styles to see which ‘do is perfect for you:
Full-bush Brazilian sweeping pubic areas everywhere
Full Bush BrazilianThis look mixes the au naturel with the famed Brazilian. It’s a reverse mullet for your panty zone: party in the front and business in the back! You’re left squeaky clean on the labia and between the cheeks, but have plenty of fuzz in the front. It’s perfect for girls who always love a little mystery wherever they go. It says you like a little adventure now and again, but still maintain traditional values and beliefs.The Loop
Au NaturelTypically known as a staple of ’70s Playboy magazines, the unkempt look has made a comeback in a major way. It’s low key and ideal for those who like to live the way that nature intended. It says you were born this way, hear you roar!The Loop
BikiniFor those of you who like the natural look but only neater, there is the traditional bikini wax. Basically, it removes any hair that may peek out of the edges of your bikini and nothing else. The quickest and least painful option of all waxes, the bikini is perfect for the busy, modern girl on the go, and it’s also easy to accomplish with a razor at home. This style says you like to take care of yourself, but you're up for anything.The Loop
French BikiniThe French Bikini is like the regular bikini wax’s fun older cousin who always takes things one-step further. This wax removes the hair along your panty line (about an inch inside) leaving a one to two inch strip of hair in the centre. It's for those who dream of living in Paris, and it says you’re chic but without trying too hard. The Loop
BrazilianThanks to our friends in the south, we have the Brazilian. Known by some as the Full Monty, this style leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination by removing every strand of hair from the front to the back. This style says you either go big, or go home.The Loop
Landing StripThis looks very similar to the French bikini wax at first glance, but leaves a thinner and shorter strip in the front, and typically includes cleaning up your backside as well. It's for those girls who like the idea of removing it all, but aren’t quite ready to commit yet. It says you're a maneater and you ALWAYS have a good time.The Loop
Heart ShapeNothing says va-va-voom quite like shaping your pubic hair into the symbol of love. This look would typically remove all hair from front and back except for a small heart-shaped patch in the front. Not available in all spas, you have to specifically seek this one out or do-it-yourself. It says you’re a hopeless romantic and a go-getter at the same time. The Loop
Lightning BoltHearts not your thing? That’s OK, because we also have the lightning bolt. This surge of electricity leaves you hairless except for the brazen bolt in the front. It either says you have a wild side or that you’re secretly a hardcore AC/DC or Harry Potter fan (it’s alright, we won’t judge!).The Loop
The VajazzleVajazzling is the art of bedazzling your vagina. Small crystals are temporarily adhered to the skin in any number of patterns. The best part is it can be done in combination with any of the styles already mentioned. It’s for anyone needing a little extra sparkle in their day or spring in their step. It says you're a princess and your vagina is a jewel that should be treasured by all who behold it.The Loop
