• What exactly is the difference between a Bikini and a Brazilian and all the other names?
    • There are many “cute and clever” terms for hair removal of the “nether regions.” At StudioSmooth we use names that actually describe what hair remains after your treatment. The bottom line (bad pun) is that within health and safety guidelines we will remove hair from wherever you wish, customizing your sugaring exactly the way you want it!
    • The Bikini/Speedo Line – The Bikini/Speedo Line removes hair in about a 3-inch strip around the line of your bikini or Speedo (or low-rider briefs/panties) … but removes none of the hair underneath. It includes the hair on the pubis bone just above the bikini, and also along the front of the thighs and the inner thighs (and the back of the thighs if necessary). If you choose you can actually wear underwear or a bathing suit for your sugaring, and we will work around what you have on. (It should not be your favorite because it may get sticky from the sugar and need to be discarded.) We also offer disposable underwear for women. During the summer we can follow your tan line! Or your sugarist can discreetly maneuver a towel to cover or uncover as needed.
    • The Thong Brazilian – The Thong Brazilian removes all hair except what would be covered by a thong or G-string (and yes, men do wear thongs). The name comes from Brazilian women who were the first to wear thong bathing suits. In the front, hair is removed above, below and around the privates, but not the privates themselves (leaving hair on the labia for women, and on the penis and scrotum for men). The Thong Brazilian in the back includes the butt and the cleft of the butt cheeks but not the anus. During Thong sugaring you can actually wear a thong or G-string if you choose, or have your sugarist maneuver a towel as needed. We also call the Thong the Extended Bikini. Other names include the Basic Brazilian and the Mediterranean.
    • The Bare-All Brazilian – The Bare-All Brazilian removes all hair from the privates, front and back (with the possible exception of a design described below). The Bare-All Brazilian is a Thong Brazilian plus the labia for women or the penis and scrotum for men – and if requested the entrance to the anus. The Bare-All has many nicknames: The Full Monty, the Sphinx, the GuyZilla, the L.A. Bikini, The Extreme Brazilian and the Hollywood.
    • Designs – Designs are quite popular for women who get the Bare-All Brazilian, usually a line on the mons pubis known as a “landing strip.” It also can be a heart, a star or virtually any simple shape that you desire. Some men get designs, too!
  • Sugaring is the most natural and least painful form of hair removal. So keep it short and sweet. Your skin will thank you!
