There’s no one right way to style or wax your bikini area - that’s up to you! However, if you're interested in waxing and want to know a little more before you head to the salon or attempt to do it yourself, there are some styles that have been more popular as of late than others, and some that are more popular than you might think. Let’s start with the basics.
The Bikini Line Wax

The Landing Strip Wax
Another go-to, the landing strip enables those who go for this sort of wax to feel free of hair without getting rid of everything completely. This bikini wax style leaves a strip of hair in the middle, but removes all hair from the front and sides of the pubic area. A classic style, the landing strip is a fun style many enjoy.
The Brazilian Wax
Another classic style many think of when they think of when they think of bikini wax trends is the Brazilian. A Brazilian wax is when the pubic hair is removed from the front, sides, and back of the pubic area, and extends to your anus as well. There are multiple Brazilian wax shapes and Brazilian wax styles, as this wax comes with the option to leave a strip or small amount of hair in the middle of the pubic mound. There are a lot of Brazilian wax designs out there, but it’s important to go with the one that’s right for you! If you’re looking to take off almost all of your hair, then the Brazilian is for you.
Is the Brazilian wax going out of style?
As bikini wax styles and trends come and go, you might be wondering if the well-known Brazilian is here to stay. So is the Brazilian wax still in style? Yes! The Brazilian wax is still a tried and true go-to for many waxers out there who are looking for that particular style.
The Hollywood Bikini Wax
The Hollywood takes the Brazilian up a notch by removing all of the hair, everywhere. The Hollywood involves the removal of hair from the entire pubic mound, the back sides, and up to the anus, with no hair left over. If you’re looking to go completely bare, the Hollywood is for you.
The Diamond Bikini Wax
This bikini wax removes hair off some top, sides, and all the way under but leaves a neat triangle shape right in the middle of your client's netherlands. Think ‘Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend’, with the cleanest cut diamond possible. It’s all about precision with this one.
The Heart Shape Bikini
This sought-after bikini wax removes all pubic hair on back, sides, and high up top but leaves a loving heart-shaped patch mid-center of the pubic mound. It’s done with a stencil and a lot of accuracy. Love is definitely in the air with a bikini wax request like this, but with precision!
The Monogram Bikini Wax
This bikini wax removes hair from the sides, under and some top - leaving the client with motif patchwork done in sticker pattern, design, or letters. This is a difficult, not to mention time-consuming process, but the results are totally worth it. Customers tend to ask for brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, FENDI, or a brand with another recognizable monogram, as well as their significant others’ initials. This isn’t a widespread style, but is definitely cool!
The Full Moon Bikini Wax
The Full Moon is a newer style that’s been growing in popularity post-lockdown. The look entails removing the hair from the sides, under, back and grooming and waxing the hair at the front of the pubic mound into a circle using a stencil and high precision waxing techniques.
The Vajazzle Bikini Wax
You knew this one would be coming! The Vajazzle is a full hairless Brazilian with the twist of adding some glitz!This technique involves removing all of the hair, all over, and bedazzling a portion of the middle area of the pubic mound in Swarovski Crystals, glitter, or with certain designs. If done correctly, the jewels/glitter stay on for about 3-7 days depending on how often the client showers & swims.
No matter if you or your clients choose to go fully bare or for a more natural look, we highly recommend using or asking your salon about our popular Pink Film hard wax beads for your bikini wax styles, bikini wax shapes, and bikini wax designs if you’re using the stripless technique.
Our Starsoft clear hard wax is also great for those who have sensitive skin or who are just sensitive to certain waxes, as Starsoft’s hypoallergenic formula is free of rosins, parabens, colorants, and fragrances. This formula is also clear, which makes it easy to apply with precision and maneuver through the area effortlessly.
