The brazilian wax is one of the most requested wax services at Sweet Pea. So, where and when did this trend of waxing all of the hair “down there” begin?
As you might have guessed, brazilian waxing got its name after becoming popular on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the 1970’s when thong bathing suits hit the sand as a new fashion trend.
How Brazilian Waxing Came To The US
This new waxing craze made its way to the United States in the late 80’s when seven brazilian sisters set up shop in New York City. The Padilha sisters or the “J sisters” (Jocely, Jonice, Joyce, Janea, Jussara, Juracy, and Judsela) as they came to be known, opened a waxing studio that offered the brazilian wax service – a wax technique that would remove most or all of the hair from the bikini area.
Fast forward through the next couple decades and the brazilian, along with bikini waxing, in general, is likely the most famous wax service, coming in perhaps only second to eyebrow waxing. Even men now get in on the wax action, requesting the “manzilian.” That’s right; we have lots of male clients that visit our studio seeking this service.
Why is this waxing service so popular?
Brazilian waxing is a quick, convenient way to get silky smooth skin in the bikini area. Whether you desire to feel confident during bathing suit season or perhaps prefer a hair removal method that doesn’t cause painful nicks, cuts or shave bumps, waxing is for you.
Sweet Pea Waxing Boutique in Raleigh, NC specializes in waxing of all kinds, and we only choose high-quality waxing products that ensure a comfortable waxing experience. Although it varies, you can expect your results to last at least 2-3 weeks. Most clients visit the studio for a wax every 3-5 weeks.
