According to Cost Helper, a Brazilian wax usually costs between $45 and $80, as of April 2015. This does not take into account a tip of between 10 and 20 percent, which is usually customary at salons and spas that perform this service.
Factors that affect the cost of a Brazilian wax include the experience and licensing status of the stylist. Unlicensed or inexperienced stylists may offer waxes for a lower cost, but a badly administered wax can result in swelling, excessive redness, bleeding or discomfort. The use of lower-cost materials can also make the wax take longer and lead to more pain.
