Some women swear by Brazilian waxes, while others swear they’d never want to put themselves through such pain.
If you fall into the first camp, here are some of the top places to get waxed in Singapore.
What is waxing? What is Brazilian wax and bikini wax?
Waxing is an alternative to shaving. The body is coated in hot wax, which when dry is pulled off in one swift motion, pulling the hair out at the roots. And yes, it hurts.
The advantage, compared to shaving, is that the hair takes much longer to grow back and, when it does, isn’t all prickly.
A bikini wax removes hair along the bikini line, ie. the limits of one’s swimsuit bottom, thereby enabling you to wear a bikini without having to worry about embarrassing exposure.
A Brazilian wax, on the other hand, is a more extreme form of bikini wax, with a lot more hair being removed. The final result can range from a V shape to completely bare.
