So, you've heard about brazilian waxing and have decided to take the plunge! What can you expect from your first waxing? Where did it come from? Brazilian waxing first came to the United States via New York and was brought here by seven Brazilian born sisters. In Brazil it is common to remove hair from the genital area; their bathing suits are revealing and hair peeking out is a no-no.
Brazilian waxing is removing all hair from the frontal pubic area (the mound or apex), about 2 inches where the upper thigh meets the pubic area, the labia and the anal area. Some leave an optional landing strip which in most cases is hair on the mound in the shape of a rectangle or triangle.
