Intimate Waxing DefinitionsIntimate Waxing Definitions

In our last post we described some of the waxing lingo used at Theresa’s Face and Body Cape Coral spa. For all of our waxing devotee’s here as some additional intimate waxing definitions and terms to bump up your vocabulary.

Brazilian waxing

Brazilian waxing removes hair off the top and sides of the bikini line as well as all the way under your bum leaving you completely bare. For those who wish not to be completely naked, a variation of this wax can include leaving a landing strip about one inch in diameter in the center of your nether region. Another popular option would be a Brazilian wax with a tiny triangle left at the top of the pubic mound.

Soft wax

Soft wax also known as strip wax is best for large areas of skin and for clean-up of hair on the sides of legs or pubic mound after a Brazilian wax. Soft wax is effective for grabbing fine to medium textured hairs on larger areas of the body including the legs, chest, back and bikini area. Soft wax adheres to skin and removes the dead layer of the skin so it is important for the esthetician to apply it carefully and generally not more than once in a given area.

Hard wax

Hard wax works best on women and men’s nether regions as this hair is thick and coarse. Hard wax is ideal for Brazilian waxes. This wax is thicker and gets a better grip on the hair than soft wax. As it cools the wax shrink wraps around the hairs with less disturbance to the skin. It also leaves no sticky residue and works for shorter thicker hairs. Other body areas ideal for hard wax include under arms, chin and upper lip.


Sugaring is a method of temporary hair removal that has been practiced in the Middle East and Greece since antiquity. Sugaring is a natural form of hair removal. The gel is derived from sugar, lemon and hot water. This technique removes hair from the roots and offers an alternative to those with very sensitive skin. Sugar grabs the hair but not the skin. This method is suitable for most areas of the body.
