The websites of beauty magazines, such as Cosmopolitan UK, have photographs of various styles of bikini waxes, including the Brazilian wax. Other sites, such as BrazilianWaxy.com and HairRemoval.About.com, have photographs, videos and text describing a Brazilian wax.
While the exact look of a Brazilian wax varies by the technician, a Brazilian wax generally leaves the woman with only a "landing strip" of pubic hair above the vulva. Some Brazilian waxes remove hair on the buttocks in addition to frontal pubic hair. The thorough nature of a Brazilian wax usually requires a female to remove her underwear. Brazilian waxes usually use beeswax since technicians consider this wax more effective in eliminating pubic hairs.
