We'll be straight with you: Getting your first bikini wax is not a fun experience for most people. That said, it's a longer-lasting method to removing your pubic hair than shaving , with the smoothness from a bikini wax lasting for two to four weeks , rather than days, making it a good option for the summer months , when you don't want to be constantly reaching for the razor. But being aware of exactly what you're getting yourself into will help you get through the experience. Below, we outline what a full bikini wax involves and how to prepare for your first bikini wax.

Before I stepped foot into the salon last week, I'd never successfully waxed anything before. I'd thought about it. I'd browsed my options. In college, I even ordered a do-it-yourself waxing kit off Amazon. But there's a difference between telling yourself you have the gumption to rip a hardened wax strip off your own privates versus actually being able to do it, so the wax went clumsily to my legs instead. Even that didn't go swimmingly, so I've mostly stuck with razors and bikini trimmers whenever I've felt like changing up my natural landscape.
However, you can still be proactive while waxing at home. Below, everything you need to know about at-home Brazilians, including tips on how to make the process as painless as possible. Moreover, stripless wax puts all of the power in your hands—literally. Most at-home wax treatments have clear instructions on how long to heat the product.
The pain factor and price are the first few factors that come to mind. You do it anyway because you know what they say: Beauty is pain—and the end results are well worth it. So once you survive your waxing session like a champ, this question comes to mind: What if we could just make the results last longer?
