Checkout our simple guide on bikini wax styles and come down to our salon located in downtown Tacoma to get your next bikini wax.

1. The Alaskan

Let’s start off all natural look aka The Alaskan . We want to be clear that there is nothing wrong with going 100% natural.

2. The Canadian

Perfect for any first-time waxer ready to make the switch from an Alaskan. This is a bikini line touch up, a great option if you want to keep things on the natural side but want some definition. Hair is generally removed anywhere outside the more modest bikini line.

3. The Hawaiian

Much like the Canadian the Hawaiian is still nice and on the natural side but taken to the next level. This is usually referred to as a standard bikini line wax. This is the wax you want for summertime bikini season.

4. The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda is a Brazilian style wax that is more shapely and fun. Unlike the other versions when you go Brazilian style they take hair off the top and sides of the bikini line but also all the way under and around the back to. When you want to feel smooth but keep a little on the top this is a great option.

5. The Landing Strip

A timeless classic the landing strip is a French style wax and differs from Brazilian style waxes as most of the hair is taken from around the front and sides, but the middle and back are left alone. If you want to feel smooth and clean of hair, without being too bare this is the way to go.

6.The Brazilian

The Brazilian is probably the most common type of waxing. This leaves you with no hair, nothing left at all. Be ready to take everything off and get into some serious yoga-esque poses so that your waxer can get everything.
