How To Wax Your Bikini Line

Wait a sec!
Is your hair the right length? Is your skin clean and dry? Not sure? Make sure you read our pre-wax checklist before you begin.

Pubic Wax Checklist

Which strip where?!

You can use the different shaped strips however you want (though not internally or for Brazilians, please), but here are some suggestions:
Upper thigh (outer bikini line)
Strip: wide rectangle
Position: Extend your leg sideways. You can rest your foot on the side of the tub or sit on a towel with your knees out. Pull the skin taut by pulling the top of your thigh towards your knee or pulling under your thigh.
Bikini line
Strip: thin rectangle
Position: Extend your leg sideways. You can rest your foot on the side of the tub or sit on a towel with your knees out. Pull the skin taut by pulling the top of your thigh towards your knee or pulling under your thigh.
Mons pubis
Strip: square
Position: Stand or sit on a towel with your legs bent outwards (leaning back slightly to see). Pull your stomach upward to keep skin taut. 

Alright, it’s showtime! Here’s how to wax your bikini line.

  • Look at the direction your hair grows. That’s the direction in which you’ll place the wax strip. Pubic hair generally grows down and inward (meaning you'll need to place the strips at an angle).
  • Pull strips slowly apart, to ensure even wax distribution (Do not rub the wax strips between your hands to warm them up. Our soft gel wax comes ready-to-use).
  • Apply the wax strip at the outer edge of the section you want to remove. Rub the strip firmly in the direction the hair grows 3-4 times. You want to make sure the wax is grabbing onto all the hairs.
  • Pull skin taut at the base of the strip with your non-dominant hand. Take a deep breath. Grab the cloth portion of the strip and pull in the opposite direction your hair grows, quickly and close to your skin. If you pull upwards it can irritate your skin.
    Wax left behind? You might be pulling too slowly. Remember, pull quickly and close to your skin! You can find tips here to help with stickiness.
    Not getting much hair? Make sure you’re firmly rubbing the strip and pulling it in the opposite direction your hair grows. You may also be trying to pull too much hair at once; try a different angle and slowly work your way from the outside in with small sections.
  • Repeat, waxing inward until you have the look you want. Your pubic skin is sensitive, so don’t keep reapplying a strip to the same spot; you will hurt your skin. If there’s still hair, move on and come back in a day.
  • When you’re done, remove any wax residue using a post-wax cloth. If you had a reaction during your spot test, natural oils like argan, coconut, and jojoba will work as a substitute.
