Why should I wax?

Waxing is one of the best method to semi-permanently remove unwanted hair.

It is more effective than shaving because it remove the hairs from the roots, not just from the skin’s surface, so it takes longer for them to grow back. Over time, hair in waxed areas regrows lighter and more sparse, or not at all and your skin will be radiant and smooth. Even fine hair shadows the face, distorting and aging your features will slowly decrease.

By not using a razor or hair removal creams  you can avoid bumps, rashes, razor burns, nicks and cuts.
So not only does waxing remove the hairs, but it also exfoliates dead skin cells. Results usually last from 2 to 6 weeks.

What are the differences between Full Intimate, Shaped Intimate and Bikini Line?

The Full Intimate also know as The Hollywood or Full Brazilian, leaves you with with absolutely no hair.
Front and back are completely cleaned.

A Brazilian, Landing Strip (French style), The Heart and similar wax "cuts" all are considered Shaped Intimate.
They are more defined and often go all the way under and around the back, too.

The Bikini Line is exactly as the name would suggest, a tidy up around the edges: around the tops of thighs and any hair above your panties. A good option if you want to keep things on the natural side.
