Different strokes for different folks
The growth of intimate waxing over the last ten years has been phenomenal. It’s what Velvet Patch specialises in, spends most of the working day doing and frankly wouldn’t actually have a business at all if it wasn’t the treatment of choice for both men and woman.
But is it a Hollywood, Playboy or Sphinx?
Fact is no two people (or salons) call intimate waxing by the same name. What matters is that you the client gets what you want, and you define how much or little you want off and from where. Velvet Patch will ensure your needs are understood (regardless of name) before picking up a spatula and we can christen YOUR wax something completely different if you like!!
Just go for it
Velvet Patch regularly welcomes intimate first-timers with many Brazilian virgins now Brazilian veterans. Many clients start out incrementally but all are wowed by the wax and are eager to continue. Most clients comment “is that it?” with the reality of the process not half as daunting as the anticipated. Velvet Patch recognises your first appointment can be nerve racking but know you’ll be in a private, comfortable setting, in experienced, professional hands and will be helped on that hair-free highway whatever route/pace you decide to take – just go for it, you’ll be joining literally thousands of clients waxed by Velvet Patch.
Don’t be cruel with your jewels
Hard wax (sometimes called hot or non-strip) was designed for intimate places, it’s more effective at removing coarse, deep rooted hair and far kinder on the skin. Industry codes of practice also mean therapists must be separately accredited in intimate waxing to both ensure they have the skill/care to carry out such a delicate, soft tissue treatment and to ensure they are fully and comprehensively insured.
Velvet Patch is proud to be Axiom certified and formally and separately accredited in both male and female intimate waxing. If shopping around for your Brazilian do confirm hard or hot/non-strip wax is being used and never, ever be afraid to ask to see accreditation certificates – it shows you care, are informed about your treatment and any certified therapist will show certificates with pride. Additionally, many salons are now boasting the sub 10-min Brazilian “express” wax – some a mere 6-min. Whilst agreed we don’t want to unnecessarily prolong the treatment, we really do need to question this as a metric of service, quality & sensibility. Hair and skin types DO differ, hormone levels DO impact skin fragility particularly as we age and estrogen levels decrease. Soft tissue areas do not and should not be subjected to such unnecessary trauma in seeking signature selling advantage (or worse) the quest for greater commercials.
Finally- Is your Brazilian really anyone else’s business?
