What’s The Difference between a Warm Wax and Hot Intimate Wax?
We use both types of wax, each type is designed for specific areas and hair types. The main difference between warm and hot wax is the method of which it’s applied and removed.
For intimate waxing treatments we Perron Rigot hot wax. The reason we use hot wax for all intimate waxing is by nature, hot wax is designed with a much thicker consistency. Hot wax is applied in a circular motion, directly onto the skin, fully covering all hairs, allowed to dry and then removed without the use of waxing strips. Hot wax is far better for those delicate, intimate and sensitive areas, providing a more comfortable waxing experience.
Warm wax is generally used on areas of the body such as legs, arms and backs. Some facial areas can also be treated with warm wax depending on the hair type and area being treated. We use Perron Rigiot warm wax, which is applied to the skin using a spatula followed by a waxing strip before being quickly and efficiently removed in one quick action, removing the hair from the area treated.
What is a Brazilian, Hollywood and Extended Bikini Wax…?
When it comes to intimate waxing there’s no doubt the choice and styles of waxing can be a little confusing! Some salon’s differ from others in terms of the style and whats included in a certain style of intimate waxing treatment.
Let us clarify exactly what each style of waxing is, how it’s conducted and the results you can expect.
Our very popular Brazilian wax treatment removes all hair from the bikini line area, leaving a small vertical strip of hair on the front, the area round to the bottom area is also waxed.
Our Hollywood wax treatment is another popular choice, completely removing all hair from the front round to the bottom area, completely removing all hair from the female region.
The bikini wax is a traditional intimate waxing treatment removing hair from outside the bikini line, leaving hair on the front. The best way to describe it is the area left with hair is in the shape of an upside down triangle. The area round to the bottom is not waxed.
Extended Bikini Wax
An extended bikini wax removes the hair similar to the regular bikini wax, with the difference of taking the hair line in slightly deeper, leaving a far narrower upside down triangle shape but not removing hair from the labia or anus, ideal for those more revealing holiday outfits!

Timing between Intimate Waxing Treatments
Everyone is different as are their hair growth patterns, generally is best to time your waxing treatments every 4-6 weeks. This promotes healthy hair growth that enables the hair to grow back finer and thinner as the hair follicle has far less grip on the hair.
It’s not recommended to have waxing treatments sooner than this timeline as the results will be not be as successful due to the hair being too short to grip and provide professional results.
Intimate Waxing During Your Cycle…?
There’s times when timing can be in vain! If you have an intimate waxing appointment and have your menstrual cycle, don’t worry we can still carry out your treatment as long as you’re wearing a tampon.
For best results we recommend all clients follow some basic tips and advice prior and following all wax treatments. More details can be found here – Waxing Before & After Advice
