Question: What Is a French Bikini Wax?
Answer: It takes all or most of the pubic hair in the front (leaving a small strip) and the hair in the middle, but leaves the hair in the back. This bikini wax style is similar to the Brazilian, but the Brazilian also removes the hair from the behind. The Hollywood wax, on the other hand removes all pubic hair: front, middle and back. So you’re basically bald.

Because a French bikini wax includes more than just removing hair outside your panty line, you should get this done professionally. It’s essential to find an experienced technician for any waxing (find out what to look for), but even more crucial with a specialty service, like a French bikini wax.

And remember, you’re not locked into any one style just because it has a name. Communicate to the technician on what hair you want to keep and remove to your personal preference. Designs, colors and jewels can makes your bikini style more elaborate and capture your unique personality.
