We get a lot of questions about Bikini and Brazilian Waxing. I thought it would be good to give you some waxing information before you call in to schedule an appointment for this slightly nerve wrecking appointment :-)
First, we use a low temperature wax that is removed with a cotton strip. This type of wax can be used over the same area in case there is multiple hair growth patterns. It also is the wax that really gets in there and gets the job done.

Second, we wear gloves…it’s not you, it’s us.  No, seriously, gloves are the best way to protect you as well as ourselves. So it’s not that we’re grossed out by what we do, we just care.

Last but not least. Hair grows in different may not all come out with you first trip in. That being said if you have any questions please feel free to ask the service provider.

We have come up with what we think is a comprehensive explanation of Bikini vs. Brazilian waxing and the styles with each type of waxing. For scheduling we break these into two service types Bikini Wax or Brazilian Wax, however, when you come in for a wax you can tell your service provider the "style" of waxing you would like.

Bikini Wax

Regular Bikini Wax:

A Regular Bikini Wax removes the hair outside of your panty line.
When to choose: If it is your first bikini wax, or you are just looking to have no hair show from outside of your panties.

Full Bikini Wax:
A Full Bikini Wax takes the sides of the bikini line deeper than a regular bikini wax. It can also include waxing some hair below the top of the panty line to make a more defined “triangle” area.
When to choose: If you still want to keep hair, but want more definition than clean-up.

Brazilian Waxing

French Brazilian:
A French Brazilian Wax takes all hair off in the front except a small strip. It does not take off any hair from the back.
When to choose: If you want the area basically bare and you do not want any off the back.

A Brazilian Wax takes all hair off in the front except a small strip or triangle and it goes all of the way back (yes to your bum). 
When to choose: This is the perfect option if you wear a thong, or want to be mostly hairless in front and smooth in the back.

Where a Brazilian may leave you with some hair left, a Hollywood removes all of it.  The bottom line, you won’t have any hair from the front to the back or from the left to the right.
When to choose: You would choose this if you want to be a smooth as a babies bum and want absolutely no hair in the front, in-between or in the back. I would not recommend this for a first time Brazilian Wax.

Always remember, you’re in control of your service.  Please tell the service provider your preferences of where and how much hair you want removed or left.  They can adjust the style to make it your own.

I can not even begin to tell you how many gift cards I have gotten over the years:) I'm sure that I'm not the only one who has lost several of them only to find them after they are expired or, as I recently discovered, the business no longer exists (thank you to an un-named book store)! Recently, I found these treasures in an envelope that I had set aside so I would "remember" to use them...epic failure! But, it got me thinking about salon gift certificates.

Clients have told me how they have gift certificates to other salons that they feel as if they may never use. Some clients, like me lose them only to find they have expired when they reemerge from their hiding spot. I kept asking myself how can Blush give these cards some usefulness? I asked my staff this question this week and we came up with what we thought is a GREAT idea!

From now until May 1st we want to put those relaxation dollars to work. Bring in your gift certificates from any salon and we will honor 25% of its value. We just ask that you pay for half of your total ticket and use this credit to pay the other half of your total ticket. We can't wait to see you!
