Facts About Going French. Here’s What You Need to Know

You’ve probably heard of the bikini and Brazilian wax, but chances are the French bikini wax might be a new one for you. So wondering what the difference is? Read on for all the facts about going French with your wax and how it will have your bikini line looking de toute beauté.


What Is a French Bikini Wax?

Basically, it’s similar to a Brazilian in that most of the hair is taken from around the front and sides, but the middle (labia) and around your backside is left alone


Why Do People Like It?

The French wax is a great choice for those that want things pretty smooth and bare down there without going completely hairless. This is a great solution for a first-time bikini area wax appointment as you can experience the treatment without going completely bare. 


What Should I Expect During My Treatment?

Because you aren’t waxing your backside area, you won’t have to turn over and stretch or spread your legs as much. You’ll still have to remove your undies for most of the procedure.


What Type of Wax is Used?

Hard wax is always best for sensitive areas. Efficient and gentle, a good hard wax will make the treatment easier and less painful. Applied directly to the skin and then peeled off, hard wax picks up the hair much easier. It also leaves no sticky residue so it’s much easier to clean up.   


What About Pre and Post-Wax Care

The bikini area is definitely a place you don’t want to see any bumps post-wax—that’s a big reason you are waxing down there right? Following the correct steps before and after your appointment will help prevent issues. Be sure to discuss proper at-home care with your wax professional.
