A Brazilian wax generally takes anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes, depending on the experience level of the waxer and the amount of hair on the waxee. The waxer spreads wax and uses a strip of cloth to remove the wax and the hair, repeating the process until the majority of the hair is removed. After the waxing process is complete, he or she uses tweezers to pluck any stray hairs.
For best results, the hair to be waxed should be between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch in length. Hair longer than this length can be trimmed to a more desirable length. Individuals should not consume alcohol before getting waxed as alcohol consumption can cause the pores to tighten, making the waxing process more difficult.
