Smooth Perfection: Auckland’s Ultimate Brazilian Wax Experience


For those who don’t know, Brazilian waxing is a form of bikini waxing. There are a few different types of bikini waxing, and Brazilian waxing is one of the most popular. It actually has quite an interesting history. A few hundreds of years ago, women would use sugar paste in order to groom the hair around their private area, as it was seen as a hygienic practise, especially in warmer climates.

Brazilian wax originated around 1987, when Janea Padilha, and her six sisters, (all originating from Brazil) opened up a salon in New York. A few years into working, Janea had the idea to introduce the Brazilian wax. This wax was different from the basic bikini since all pubic hair (from the pelvic region and labia to anus) would be waxed, with the option of a frontal trim or strip wax (“landing strip”), a simple design or nothing at all. These waxing services were, and still are, a huge success. Some other names for this style are the full bikini wax, Sphinx wax, or Hollywood wax. The difference between the Hollywood and the Brazilian wax is that with a Brazilian, a thin strip of trimmed hair remains in the front area, while a Hollywood wax gets rid of all the hair.

The Brazilian wax is quite painful, and when not done by waxing specialists or a certified beauty therapist, you may get an infection. Therefore, let’s dive into some of the best Brazilian waxing salons in Auckland so that you can book an appointment stress-free and with minimal pain.

Sporting four locations in total in Auckland, your unwanted hairs won’t stand a chance to their hair removal techniques. For their Brazilian wax, they use “advanced” wax to remove all the hairs from the bikini line and underneath. It’s simply the best wax for complete hair removal and thinner regrowth. They also offer the “basic bikini” and the “extended version”. The extended option removes more hairs than a basic bikini, but less than a Brazilian; which is a good option if you don’t feel comfortable with removing all the hair. Working six days per week, book your hair removal treatment as soon as today!


There is no way of going around the fact that waxing can hurt and can cause discomfort. Beauty is pain, after all. It’s also important to remember that the first time is the most painful. After a few waxes, you’ll notice fewer ingrown hairs and that the hair grows back much thinner than before, no matter if it’s on your leg or underwear region. If wax freaks you out, we recommend starting with waxing your legs and then slowly working your way to waxing the bikini line.

What do you find most painful – full legs, bikini line wax, or Brazilian wax?
