A traditional Brazilian removes all hair in the back and front, except for a strip of hair approximately two fingers in width right down the center of the abdomen. A bare Brazilian removes all hair from the back and the front. It doesn’t really matter what you call it, just make sure you can explain it.

What wax to use

This is a personal choice. Some estheticians like to use soft wax in this area, and some prefer hard wax. Choose what you feel most comfortable with and remember, all waxes are not created equal and neither are their pre- and post-products. Each wax will vary to some degree, so it is important that you know the wax you are working with and use the recommended pre- and post-treatment products because they are specifically formulated to accompany each wax.

Your client arrives

Performing a quality Brazilian begins the moment your client walks into your spa.

Step 1. Great her with a warm, welcoming smile.

Step 2. Ask her if she would like to use the restroom, and offer her something to drink.
