New Trends in Waxing

Movies, television, magazines and celebrities set the trends that fashion will follow. And waxing is in and body hair is out!

In a society where cosmetic surgery and treatments such as botox are commonplace, pain is certainly no obstacle when we deal with how we look and feel. Waxing is one of the easiest, fastest and least expensive ways men and women can "clean up" their look. The results are immediate and can produce a smooth, youthful appearance.

Clearly, the hottest new trend in waxing is the Brazilian wax. The technique is named for Brazil, the country in which it originated. It was first used for women wanting to wear the then-new thong bikinis. Now it is preferred for a clean, sexy look by pornstars and house fraus alike.

This procedure involves the complete removal of hair adjacent to the anus, perineum and vulva (labia majora and mons pubis). It can be thought of as an extreme form of bikini waxing. Most forms of Brazilian waxing leave a small line of pubic hair above the vulva also known as a "landing strip". Waxes that completely remove the pubic hair are either termed 'Hollywood' or 'Sphynx' depending on the salon and is typically combined with removal of hair around the anus and buttocks. Many women often opt for a Brazilian bikini wax because it produces clean, long lasting results. Men will often leave a triangle-shaped patch above the penis unshaved (since this area can be exceptionally sensitive to irritation) and will sometimes also leave the hair surrounding the anus intact (while removing that found on the buttocks). See Styles.

Another interesting trend is the greater acceptance of waxing by men. The big bear look is out and keeping up with the trend, men are getting into the act. Think the "Forty Year Old Virgin". Waxing of the back and chest are the most common procedures done by men, although waxing of the intimate areas is becoming more popular by the day. Many men's styles follow trends set by the women.

With the explosion in waxing, another trend is following. This is Anal and Vaginal Bleaching. As more skin becomes exposed, both men and women are looking to enhance the beauty of their intimate areas that may suffer from dark discoloration previously unknown. One company to take advantage of this new trend is South Beach Skin Solutions. They have formulated a safe, gentle Anal Lightening Gel and Soothing Lotion for after waxing that helps prevent ingrown hairs. These unique products are the latest in beauty enhancement for the intimate areas for both men and women. To learn more about this trend, visit their web site at
