All about Hollywood waxing: How it works, risks, benefits, and aftercare

In case it's been a while since you've had a bikini wax, here's a refresher: there are different types of bikini waxes. Hollywood waxing is the most popular—and the most painful.

If it's your first time getting a Hollywood (or any) bikini wax, read on for everything you need to know. We'll help make sure your experience is as pain-free and smooth as possible.

So, what exactly is a Hollywood bikini wax, what are the benefits, and how is it done? Let's find out!

What is Hollywood waxing?

A Hollywood wax is a type of intimate waxing that has been growing in popularity over the years. During this bikini wax, all of the hair is removed from the pubic area, including the labia, leaving a completely smooth hair-free area.

The term "Hollywood wax" comes from the fact that this style of waxing was popularized by actresses in the entertainment industry who wanted to avoid any visible panty lines and have a flawless look on camera.

What are the benefits of Hollywood waxing?

Hollywood waxing can leave the area feeling smooth and soft for weeks at a time. It can also make it easier to wear certain types of clothing, such as swimsuits, and can make the area more hygienic.

Many people, both men and women alike, enjoy getting a Hollywood wax for the clean, smooth look it provides.

While a Hollywood wax can be performed on anyone, it is important to keep in mind that this type of waxing is quite different from a standard bikini wax. The entire process can be quite painful and it takes a certain level of comfort with your body to go through with it.

If you're considering getting a Hollywood wax, be sure to book an appointment with a licensed esthetician or waxing specialist who has experience performing this type of bikini wax.

What are the downsides to Hollywood waxing? Are there any risks?

Hollywood waxing can be painful, especially if it is done incorrectly. Intimate waxing like the Hollywood or Brazillian wax can be a bit more painful than other types of waxing, since all of the hair is being removed from a sensitive area. It can also be more expensive than other types of waxing.

If you're considering getting a Hollywood wax, be sure to go to a licensed and experienced esthetician. They will know how to properly perform the waxing so that you experience as little pain as possible.

Although Hollywood waxing can sometimes be painful, there are typically no other risks associated with intimate waxing. It is important to ensure that the person performing the wax is experienced and uses high-quality products to avoid irritation or other skin problems.

Be sure to follow your esthetician's aftercare instructions to help soothe the skin and prevent any irritation.

How long does this wax take and how often should I get it done?

A Hollywood wax typically takes 30-45 minutes. The frequency of waxing will depend on your own personal hair growth, but most people generally need to get it done every 4-6 weeks.

If you are new to Hollywood waxing, be sure to book an appointment with a licensed and experienced esthetician. They will be able to give you more information on what to expect during the waxing process and how often you should get it done.

Brazillian wax and Hollywood waxing: what's the difference?

Brazillian waxing is similar to Hollywood waxing in that all of the hair is removed from the pubic area, including the labia. However, with Brazillian waxing, a small strip of hair is typically left in the front.

Hollywood waxing removes all of the hair from the pubic area, resulting in a completely smooth look. Many people prefer Hollywood waxing for this reason.

Both Brazillian waxing and Hollywood waxing can be quite painful, so it is important to go to a licensed and experienced esthetician. They will know how to properly perform the waxing so that you experience as little pain as possible.

How is a Hollywood wax done?

Hollywood waxing is usually done by a professional beauty therapist in a salon.

During the wax, the beauty therapist will first apply a thin layer of wax to the area to be treated. They will then use a strip of cloth or paper to remove the wax, along with the hair.

Hollywood waxing at home by yourself

Doing your own bikini wax at home is not recommended, as it can be quite difficult to properly remove all of the hair without causing pain or irritation.

However, if you do decide to wax at home, be sure to use a high-quality wax and follow all of the instructions carefully. It is also important to make sure that the area is properly cleansed before starting the waxing process.

If you're considering doing your own Hollywood wax at home, you can purchase an at-home Hollywood waxing kit. These kits typically come with everything you need to properly remove the hair from your pubic area, including wax, strips, and aftercare products.

Before purchasing an at-home Hollywood waxing kit, be sure to read the instructions carefully. It is also important to make sure that you are not allergic to any of the products in the kit.

Hollywood waxing at home with a professional

If you're not comfortable doing your own Hollywood wax, you can book an appointment with a professional esthetician. They will be able to properly remove all of the hair from your pubic area, resulting in a smooth and flawless finish.

At the end of the day, Hollywood waxing is a personal decision. Some people love the smooth and sleek look it provides, while others find it to be too painful or simply prefer not to remove all of their pubic hair.

If you're considering getting a Hollywood wax, be sure to book an appointment with a licensed and experienced esthetician. They will be able to give you the best possible Hollywood wax experience!

Aftercare: How to take care of your skin after a Hollywood wax

waxing aftercare

After getting a bikini wax, the pores on the skin are more open and susceptible to infection. This is why it is essential to take care of your skin properly after your Hollywood waxing service.

  • Clean the area twice a day with a mild cleanser and avoid hot showers or baths, as this can further irritate the skin.
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing, as this can cause the pores to become clogged.
  • Avoid touching the area or using any harsh chemicals on the skin. Doing so can cause irritation (or even an infection!)

If there is any redness, swelling, or pain after the wax, it is important to use an antibacterial ointment on the irritated area and contact a licensed esthetician for further advice.

If you have any questions or concerns about aftercare, be sure to ask your esthetician before leaving the salon.
