I go to European Waxing Center and they offer a Brazilian with “back end” or a bikini. These options are a little confusing. I would say it means, a Brazilian where you leave a tiny bit of hair, a Brazilian where you take it all off without back end, and a full Brazilian where you do back end.

Love them. They’re clean and spa like and hygenic and the aestheticians (what are they called? Spelling?) are professional and nice. I feel extremely comfortable and relaxed when I go there. And I love the wax that they use. No wax strips and it’s less harsh than the regular yellow wax. I highly recommend them.

Doesn’t this hurt?  Does it leave any break outs?  Or take skin off?

I’ve only ever waxed my eye brows and that leaves my eye brows red like they are sun burned for about 2-3 hours

Partial brazillian can mean that there is a strip in the front, or the top isn’t done.  A full brazillian is probably everything except the back.  And the full brazillian is front+back. 

That’s kind of a silly way to menu it out.  But, everyone has a different idea of what a brazillian is.  So it’s understandable that there are different options. 

I would just do the whole thing, it doesn’t make sense to be smooth with tufts of hair in your ass.

@MrsDrRose612:  Yes – I was shocked with how quick it took, and every time you go back it gets quicker and quicker because with less hair = less time. Of course, if you go, and you’re not satisfied with your woman, try someone else. I had a great experience my 1st time so I kept going back to the same woman. 

@PoeticDoveInLA:  Of course it hurts (like pulling hair with hot wax does on any part of your body) but I was shocked that it didn’t hurt as much as I had thought it would. The funny thing is, people think the skin down there is really sensitive, but I’ve waxed many parts of my body and the only one that was so sensitive I actually bled was my underarms. I never got a breakout – I’ve been sore,  but as you do it more and more that goes away. When I was a teenager and started waxing my eyebrows I used to cry, and now I barely feel the pain because I’m used to it. Also, it obviously did not take skin off, lol. A lot of people have sensitivies with their skin, I do not appear to have any. My SIL got her eyebrows waxed one time and the lady burned her very badly, but I think that was because the lady didn’t know what she was doing. But the wax at EWC has never been unbearably hot, and the type of wax they use is soothing and not at all like that yellow kind with the strips you pull off.

@axeyourmakeupkit:  By the way, I agree with this. If I’m spending the $ on it and I’m putting myself through the experience, commit all the way Smile

Yes, possibely, possibly.

It hurts like hell and if you get the red bumps from eyebrow waxing, you’re probably going to bruise (seriously…bruise) from a Brazilian.  Take some paid meds in advance.  Back when I used to do them, they were fast, but not fast enough(!) and how much they hurt depended on the aestheticism. I went to the same spa for all of mine and found it bearable when one person did them.

My last one was the most horrible one I’ve ever had (hence it being the last).  It was with a different person than usual (I assumed that same spa = same experience).  I couldn’t make it through the whole thing.  I was so upset by the pain that I told the girl it was the worst wax I’d ever had and I was leaving.

@PoeticDoveInLA:  Chances are the wax was too hot. If you go to a place that specializes in waxing you should never lose any skin.
